Elevita May 2018 Review

Once again, everything arrived in this lovely cotton drawstring bag! Such a nice bonus!

This is the letter I received in my package this month, detailing the contents. I especially appreciate the detail it provides about the artisans who created this month’s handicrafts. It gives it such a special, personal touch!

Gift Bags, India

Gift Bags, India

Look at how pretty these gift bags are! They were handmade in India out of recycled cotton. This makes them very soft, but it also means they can be used many times. I can always use more gift bags, but these are really special!

Eyeglasses Case, Ghana

Eyeglasses Case, Ghana

The following two things are true about me: I do wear glasses, and I do not have a case for them. This glasses case is perfect! I absolutely love hand-batiked items, and the ones I have seen from Ghana are just exquisite. I am so happy to have this!

Necklace by Pearls With Purpose, Philippines

This necklace is Just. Gorgeous. I love it! It’s a bit small on me (even for a choker), but this can be easily remedied with an extender. I plan on getting a lot of use out of this necklace! Pearls With Purpose is a charitable organization that promotes self-reliance through micro-enterprise.

The Verdict: Elevita is awesome! I really appreciate everything they do to help global artisans, and I love feeling like I’m a part of that. This month’s items were all great, but the necklace is so beautiful! I can’t often find values for the items Elevita sends, but I always feel like the value far outstrips the cost of the box. $30 for these lovely items is a steal!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the June box. Order by the 18th to get the current month’s box.

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $30 with free shipping, which means that each of the 3 items in the box has an average cost of $10.

  1. I loved this box. My necklace seems to be a bit longer than yours. I hope an extender works for you as this necklace is stunning. I love that the eyeglass case is soft and not rigid. This makes it fit more easily in my tiny purse and means I will actually use a case.
