Have you heard about the subscription box craze? Sign up, and you’ll receive a monthly shipment of surprise products centered on particular theme like pets or beauty.
Inspired by the trend, we went in search of the best subscriptions boxes for travelers. These three stood out from the rest.
Try the World
A gourmet box from a new country delivered every two months
“We all wish we could travel more often, but short vacation times and expensive travel tickets make it near impossible to live that sweet life of luxury. Thus was born Try The World: a ticket to the foods and cultures of the world delivered to your door.”
Why We Love It: Bite-sized cultural experiences are just what we need to keep going in between vacations.
Cost: $33 per box with an annual subscription
Handcrafted products from global artisans delivered every month
“It’s our passion to discover extraordinary, useful finds from all over the globe and share them with you. Our shop features products sourced from direct relationships with artisans as well as vetted partner organizations. From Mexican woven baskets to Ghanaian coasters, each handcrafted good we share with you is remarkably distinct.”
Why We Love It: Each shipment comes in a colorful palm leaf basket made by an indigenous artist from Oaxaca.
Cost: $30 per box with a six-month subscription
A “care package” of Hawaiian snacks delivered every month
“Makana means ‘gift’ in Hawaiian. And it is a time-honored custom in our islands to bring the very best of our place to our family and friends. Hello Makana makes it easy to give the best of Hawaii, wherever you are.”
Why We Love It: It’s the next best thing to being at Hanalei Bay Resort, and all products are made right here on the Islands.
Cost: $28 per box with an annual subscription
Warning: A subscription box may relieve wanderlust temporarily. However, the only way to truly remedy it is to travel. Failure to treat your condition may result in excessive daydreaming, compulsive browsing of TripAdvisor, and other symptoms.
