What is it? GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box 
How Much? $35/month, $99/3months, $180/6months + $12 shipping per box (US$) 
What’s in it? A themed collection of artisan-made products from around the world

Each month, GlobeIn delivers “the globe in a box” - a collection of artisan-made products from around the world, curated around a central theme. GlobeIn introduces you to products that you can feel good about - they are often organic, fair-trade, and support artisans and farmers from around the world.  
 

The theme for the April box is "Picnic". Learn more about the box and all the products here.
"Our picnic theme is about enjoying new ways of eating on the go. Picnics can be urban or rural, take place in a national park or on a neighborhood park bench. They are simple ways to enjoy a self-catered moment that is economical, ecological and fun."
Product card


ECOlunchbox ECOnapkins (Set of 2 with Sack, $12.17) 
Following techniques passed down over generations, Khatri artisans produce these whimsical hand-printed fabrics using wooden blocks, screens, and wax-resist dyeing. Sourced in fair trade from the Gujarat deserts, the ancient textile tradition combines natural plant-based dyes with synthetic dyes that help to create such rich, bright colors. In using these ECOnapkins, you are helping to sustain and protect these artisans in their cultural and artistic traditions, as well as lessen their chance of being overrun by large-scale manufacturers.

These will be great for work lunches too. It's a great and easy way to conserve paper towel and napkins.

Kopali Organic Dried Mango (1.8oz, $6)
There’s nothing better than feeling good about what you eat. This energy-boosting, easily packable snack is the perfect company to your picnic. Rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber, these mangos are completely hand-picked, dried, and crafted in pure goodness, leaving you with a sweet burst of flavor to your day. Kopali Organics assures you of a product that’s good for everyone: you, local farmers, and the planet. 

I love dried mango! It's a great snack, but so expensive. I usually buy the large bag from Costco.

Elemental Herbs Sunstick SPF 30 (0.6oz, $7.99)
Enjoy this convenient and protective sunscreen, and let yourself delight in all of its magical healing qualities. Crafted from certified organic oils such as jojoba, coconut, avocado, and an unexpected twist: Buriti, sourced from the Amazon. This unique oil hosts a rich concentration of antioxidants, possesses a photo-protective quality and an elastic nature that remedies dry skin and fights aging. With such a lively assembly of natural ingredients, your days will be that much more durable under the sun!

This was the spoiler product earlier in the month. In photos it looks like the size of a lip balm but it's actually quite a bit bigger, and perfect for using on your face, ears and nose. 

ECOlunchbox Tri Bento ($30.43)
Pack yourself a three-course meal with this hand-made stainless steel, traditional and robust lunchbox, perfect for mindful eating and portion control. Meeting the most important food-safety standards, your ECOlunchbox ensures reliability and sustainability, helping to get you one step closer to a lunch of less waste!

It's a little known fact, but I have a serious addiction with bento style lunch boxes. I have one like this, one of these, this one, and one of these. I have almost every kind of bento, except for an Indian inspired tiffin box like this one from ECOlunchbox. It's a great addition to my collection, especially since it's plastic free and dishwasher safe! 

Palm Leaf Basket (Mexico, $12)
All the monthly goodies come packed in a reusable palm leaf basket. Colours and designs will vary. Now that I have two (the last one yellow), I'm really not sure what to do with them. They could be a unique way to wrap gifts.


The April GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box, featuring a picnic theme, included five products with a retail value over $68 US. This box costs $47 US for Canadians. It's a very well curated collection of quality products that will help you plan the perfect picnic. I plan to use my bento to hold snacks for hiking or an afternoon at the beach. It will come in very handy this summer!

If you haven't signed up yet, now is the time. The  March and April boxes both sold out within the month. First time subscribers can save 25% off their first box with the purchase of a 3 or 6 month subscription. Just enter promo code WELCOME at checkout.
