I received GlobeIn’s Enlighten Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.
GlobeIn Artisan Box is a monthly subscription box featuring handmade, ethically sourced products from makers around the world. May’s Enlighten Box is curated “so that you may leap into the pages of your next novel and enjoy the view into another world!”
GlobeIn has a single subscription option, the Premium Box at $40/month (all prices in USD). Each one is valued around $70 (sometimes more) and includes four to five handmade items from artists from around the world. Subscribers can also choose additional products to customize their box.
Shipping in the US is $10/month; shipping to Canada $22/month (your first box ships free); and international shipping is $25/month.
Each box includes a glossy, full-colour brochure with details about each product and the artisans who made it, along with a recipe that pairs well with the theme. May’s recipe is a green tea yogurt parfait with raspberries that’s simple to put together but sounds (and looks) highly sophisticated.
Metal Stool/Side Table, India ($38)
With its eye-catching design, this versatile item can be used as a stylish side table or simple stool. Great for adding a pop of color to your living room or bedroom.
I’d never dream of seeing a piece of furniture in a subscription box and yet here we are. 😁 We’ve been using it on the back deck as a side table for our camping chairs and it’s perfect for a book or a couple of drinks. It’s super light so easy to take in and out of the house at night in case of rain and I can see the kids using it in their bedroom in the fall and winter. We love the colour and the design!
Handcarved Soapstone Elephant Bookends, Kenya ($60)
These uniquely designed bookends will bring a little something special to your shelves or bedside table. The perfect way to display your favourite novels.
My bestie loved these bookends so I passed them along to her. These aren’t my style but I’d love to see some different ones in another box.
Ombre Brandy Glass (Sunset), Mexico ($16)
This brandy glass has a unique blended colour design that’ll make any beverage feel like a delicious sunset.
This glass is so beautiful and fun to drink from! I only wish there were two of them. GlobeIn sells a wide variety of products on their site that you can add to your monthly box but these aren’t available. 😢
This picture doesn’t do May’s Enlighten Box justice (our porch is an eyesore!) but it’s another great one. We’ll use the stool and the glass for years and the bookends found their way to a loving home. Total value: $114.
What do you think of the GlobeIn Enlighten Box?
