Have you ever wondered how you can help support people that aren’t as fortunate as you? GlobeIn Artisan boxes are one way to do this noble act! Their subscription boxes include various types of products made by artisans all around the world. They offer a few different boxes each month, and you’re able to choose your favorite. This month, GlobeIn provided me with a few kitchen items with their dining-themed box.

While my first GlobeIn box was a surprise box that I loved, I couldn’t hold myself back from choosing the dining set this month. It looked adorable.

This GlobeIn review will share my reviews of the products in my box as well as coupons you can use to save money on your subscription!

Shipping + Packaging

Thankfully, my June box arrived in a timely fashion which wasn’t the case with my first Globein box. It was shipped in their typical blue and white box.

GlobeIn Artisan Review - Unboxing

Upon unboxing, I found four products as well as a hand-woven basket. On top was a small booklet that gave details about each product and the people who made it.

One item was wrapped carefully in bubble wrap because it was glass, which I appreciated.

Product Reviews

Le Souk Olivique Olive Wood Spork

I recently moved into a new apartment, so I’m in the process of shopping for home essentials. This beautiful wooden spoon is a perfect addition to my kitchen! It was made in North Africa, Tunisia to be precise. I love the design of it with both dark and light stains.

GlobeIn Artisan Review - Olive Wood Spoon

The quality is fantastic, and it looks much nicer in my kitchen than the silicone utensils I had before. Now I need the rest of the set!

Le Souk Ceramique Hand-Painted Pasta Bowl

This bowl is adorable. I love how big it is! They say it’s a pasta bowl, but it worked great for salad, rice, or even cooked vegetables. Those are the only ones I’ve tried, but I’m sure it would work with most foods as well. It was made in Tunisia by Le Souk Ceramique, which is a woodworking studio that’s an offshoot to Le Souk Olivique.

Their website has a variety of dining items to match this bowl, as well as other designs. They list a variety of United States websites that you can purchase their items on since the company doesn’t accept online orders themselves. They also have many more tools like the wooden spoon, as well as plenty of other beautiful designs. I would love to buy the entire set, but they’re pretty pricey.

 GlobeIn Artisan Review - Shop

They can be purchased in the GlobeIn shop as well! At the moment of writing this review, they were offering a discount of 33% off on sets of four (as shown above).

GlobeIn Artisan Review - Hot Rocks Salt

Retail value: $65

UKuva i-Africa Hot Rocks Chilli Salt Garlic & Onion

I appreciated the inclusion of the next two products since I can use them for my cooking endeavors! This first one is a delicious chili salt blend. It tastes like regular garlic salt with a spicy hint to it. I loved it – I’ll almost need a new one already. The built-in grinder is convenient as well.

It was made by a company based in South Africa. They even have an online shop where you can buy their products. However, I was sad to see that they don’t ship to the United States. They do offer to ship to a few international countries though, as well as free shipping to South Africa.

Retail value: $2.25

Lotus Foods Volcano Rice

I’ve seen this rice in stores and hadn’t gotten around to trying it out yet. I was surprised to see it in my Globein box!

 GlobeIn Artisan Review - Lotus Foods Volcano Rice Review

I enjoyed this rice more than I thought I would, and I’m glad I can repurchase it in nearby shops. Moreover, it’s packed with essential vitamins and minerals. Although this brand has gained lots of popularity, they get their rice directly from small farms in various countries.

Retail value: $4.69

Palm Leaf Bottle Basket

This beautiful, hand-woven basket was made in Mexico by a lady named Teresa Perez Marquez. It fits wine bottles perfectly, so I plan on using it for my next wine gift. This basket has nice green palm leaf designs woven into it. I got a similarly designed basket in my previous GlobeIn box, but it was shorter and wider than this one.

Savings Opportunities

GlobeIn offers a variety of continually changing deals. These are a few coupons I was able to find at the moment. They almost always provide a gift like the hand-painted mug below, so if that one is no longer available there’s probably another!

TAKE20: $20 off your first box

FREEBOX12: Free box with annual subscriptions

GOTMUGCART: a free hand-painted mug with 3-month or longer subscription

You can also save a little money with longer-term subscriptions, such as the 3-month or 6-month option. The 3-month saves $2 per month, and the 6-month saves $5 per month. Also, they offer occasional deals and sales in their shop, such as the 33% off dishware sets of four that I mentioned earlier.  

Bottom Line
Overall, I loved my GlobeIn box for June. I’m glad to be supporting artisans rather than large corporate companies which don’t need the money that so many consumers give them. These artisans are directly using their income to help their families and businesses! Plus, the items I’ve gotten in my boxes so far are high quality, useful, and well worth the price. GlobeIn would make a fantastic gift for any homeowner.
