This box was provided complimentary for review & this post contains affiliate links.
What is it? GlobeIn Benefit Basket
How Much? $19.95/month or $56.95/3 months. Additional $12 shipping per box. Prices in US dollars.
What’s in it? A handcrafted good nestled inside a handwoven basket

Each month, GlobeIn delivers the Artisan Gift Box, a collection of artisan-made products from around the world, curated around a central theme. From the GlobeIn Artisan Box, comes the GlobeIn Benefit Basket.
Think of it as a mini Artisan Box: a budget-friendly alternative for mindful consumers looking to discover crafted, distinct goods that empower remarkable artisans in remote regions of the world.
The Benefit Basket includes one incredible handcrafted good, selected from the month's Artisan Box, delivered to you nestled inside GlobeIn's signature handwoven basket. Inside each Benefit Basket, you will also find a story about the artisan, their community, and how you are making an impact on their lives with your purchase.

Normally the Benefit Basket includes a feature item from the month's Artisan Box. This month is different. Instead of receiving something from the Artisan Box, we received something completely different, but still fitting with the monthly Artisan Box theme.

The theme for the February Artisan Box was "Rise & Shine". Check out my full February box review here.

Le Souk Hand-Painted Bowl ($14)
Your bowl comes from Nabeul, a city on the Mediterranean coast of northeastern Tunisia and the center of Tunisian pottery. Le Souk Ceramique, a craft studio established in 1997, has played a vital role in putting talented artisans to work in good, collaborative conditions focused on a team approach. Your bowl’s skillfully painted lines evoke the air of peace, prosperity, and teamwork embodied by modern Tunisians even in the midst of hard economic times. We hope your favorite grain will (temporary) home in this harmonious vessel.

GlobeIn Signature Square Handwoven Basket ($12)
The GlobeIn Signature Handwoven Basket is made using the traditional “tenate” design. Handcrafted from discarded palm leaves by indigenous Oaxacan artisans and colored using natural, water-borne paints, each basket can take up to six hours to weave. These decorative and whimsical baskets make beautiful home storage options, lending a pop of color and handcrafted warmth to children’s bedrooms, bathroom storage, kitchen countertops or as gift packaging for loved ones.
 
The February GlobeIn Benefit Basket included a lovely hand-painted bowl and a woven basket. The retail value of these items is $26 US. This box costs $19.99 US plus shipping, but you can save by signing up for a 3-month term and using the promo code listed below. I love the bowl and I think it's great that they included something different from the items included in the Artisan box, but still fitting with the theme. This bowl is dishwasher and microwave safe. It would be great for storing small fruits or food items, or using it as a cereal bowl. Unfortunately the February Benefit Basket and the bowl and sold out. If the bowl appeals to you, check out the hand-painted latte mug in the GlobeIn shop.

If you are interested in subscribing to the Benefit Basket, new customers can use coupon code TRYBENEFIT to save 35% off their first month's box with a purchase of a 3-month Benefit Basket subscription. That gives you $7 off, bringing your 3-month subscription down to $49.95, plus shipping.
