As we continue to spend the summer amid the Pandemic and with very limited travel, we have found travel-themed subscription boxes to be one of the most effective ways to satisfy our wanderlust.
Here are some of the best travel-themed subscription boxes that you can have delivered right to your doorsteps!
GlobeIn is a member of the Fair Trade Federation. The monthly subscription boxes feature exclusive, handcrafted products from global artisans. Each box is curated around a monthly theme to bring you exciting products that make you feel well traveled and connected with distant cultures around the world.
You can choose from several themed boxes each month. Each box is delivered with a booklet that not only describes the product details (what it is made of, where it is made, etc.), but also tells you exactly who the artisan(s) behind the handcraft is and how your purchase directly positively impacts their lives. The powerful stories will make you want to continue to support this fair-trade company.
