Let’s see what’s inside the January 2020 “Bonjour” GlobeIn box!
Instead of the usual GlobeIn branded box, this month’s collection was shipped in a large plain brown box with the highest postage price I’ve ever seen on a $40/month subscription. (Woah!) I’m not sure how they even made any money this month with postage that high. Yeesh.
A partial peek inside!
A small info booklet featured full color photos and background information on all of the products included in the box, as well as the artisans who created them.
Collapsible Breakfast Tray, India ($45)
Clearly THIS is the item that required such a large — and expensive to ship — box this month. I’ve never actually owned a breakfast tray, so I was happy to receive such a nicely crafted one. 🙂 Made by India-based woodworking artisans, this piece is constructed of both mango and composite woods. It measures 20″ long x 10″ wide x 7″ high and can be used with the legs down to enjoy breakfast in bed, or collapsed as a regular tray to serve food or drinks.
Handpainted Recycled Glass Beldi Cup, Morocco ($35)
Some of my favorite glasses are the ones I’ve gotten in GlobeIn boxes, so I’m always happy when they send more. 😉 This colorful little juice cup was hand-blown out of recycled glass and measures roughly 4 inches tall by 2.5 inches in diameter. It’s hand-painted and features a unique shape that makes it easier to hold.
Ceramic Bud Vase, Morocco ($15)
While the color of this little ceramic bud vase is kind of blending into the background here, I assure you that it’s a very bold blue in person. — You can see it in a better light with the other items in my feature photo. It was handcrafted in Morocco by artisan ceramicists and measures 6 inches tall.
Ceramic Egg Cup, Morocco ($12)
I’m loving all of the bright/bold colors in this month’s box! Like the bud vase above, this pinkish-coral egg cup was crafted in Morocco using stoneware ceramic. It measures 6 inches in diameter and should be hand-washed only. Since I don’t actually eat eggs myself, I’ll probably end up repurposing this into a jewelry dish or something similar.
Two-Tone Hammer Spoon, India ($8)
To accompany the egg cup above, we also received a two-tone hammer spoon. The adorable utensil was handcrafted in India using both stainless steel and gold-plated stainless steel. While I won’t be using this for its intended purpose (cracking/eating eggs), I’ll certainly be using it for non-egg related scooping. 😉
January’s “Bonjour” themed GlobeIn box was one of my favorites to date. Although I don’t personally eat eggs, I’ll still be able to repurpose the dish & spoon and I love my new breakfast tray, juice glass, and pretty bud vase. 🙂 😀 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $10 on your first Premium box with coupon code “WELCOME“!
