This is a review of the Premium box, which is $40.00 per month.
GlobeIn offers one new theme every month. They also have 3-5 best selling theme boxes that they restock each month. Users have from the 1st to the 10th of the month to make their theme choice.

GlobeIn May 2019 “Delish” Review
Each box from GlobeIn contains a booklet that talks more about the theme for the box and the items inside. This little booklet is almost as valuable to me as the items inside the box because it gives background on each piece and often gives the names and shows photographs of the artisans who made them! I absolutely love knowing more about each item and the hands that crafted it.
Just a heads up, since there aren’t prices listed in the booklet for the items, I’m going off the prices given in this Globein spoilers post for items I couldn’t find online.
Iridescent Ice Cream Sundae Glasses, Mexico – Listed Value $32.00
These are so unbelievably beautiful. They are made of thick, handblown glass and coated with an iridescent rainbow finish. They would easily work for ice cream sundaes, water/juice, or just to hold your desk pens or makeup brushes because they are too pretty to store away behind a cabinet door. I love the iridescent kitchenware trend and these really will fit my kitchen decor so beautifully. They feel very heavy and well made, yet they still have those little quirks and differences that only handmade items have. I believe that little bit of human touch makes items even more special personally.
Copper Stainless Steel Straws, India – Listed Value $6.00
I am on a straw kick! Over the last couple of months, I have received BPA free plastic straws, glass straws, bamboo straws, and silicone straws. I get that the trend might be in overload right now, but I am all for it. Straws are really bad for the earth and I enjoy getting replacements that I can stash all over the place like my desk, kitchen, car, everywhere! I love these super classy, bent, rose gold versions that are unlike any others I have in my collection. They made a stunning complement to the iridescent glasses from this box too.
Copper Stainless Steel Ice Cream Scoop, India – Listed Value $18.00
I just realized that I don’t actually own an ice cream scoop, so this is great that they included one! It kind of reminds me of a much more glam version of the steel one my Nana has and that thing is like 12,843,738 years old, so this should also last quite a while with its pure metal construction. In addition to being gorgeous, the heat from your hand warms the spoon up as you scoop, meaning that hard ice cream scoops that much easier. Winning!
Eggplant and Cyan Small Toppings Bowls, Morocco – Listed Value $36.00
Lastly, we received a pair of quirky and cute topping bowls. Perfect for your rainbow sprinkles or cherries, these would also be great for a vanity or near a sink to catch your little knickknacks and jewelry. The pointed rims are really unique and I like the design that reminds me of tic-tack-toe games. Each of these bowls is signed on the bottom with the studio info from Morocco. The glaze is actually delicately crackled up close and very, very lovely.
The Verdict: The items in this month’s GlobeIn make me want to throw an adorable ice cream party for myself! I guess I could be nice enough to invite my husband, after all, I do have two glasses, bowls, and straws! The items this month were really beautifully colored, from the iridescent glass finish of the glasses to the crackle glaze on the bowls, and the rose gold/copper color of the metal straws and scoop. As usual, the items are high quality and each has that special magic that comes from being handmade by a talented and passionate craftsman. As always, information about each of these craftsmen is included in the booklet, meaning I get to enjoy their work and learn a little more about them at the same time. This box felt so special and summery, it might be one of my favorites ever from this sub.
