It seems that subscriptions boxes are a hot trend lately. Not only are they great for gift giving, they’re also great for buying goodies for yourself! Last year I made a round up of fun subscription box gift ideas, and I’m excited to have found another one to add to the list. The Explore Local Box is especially great if you LOVE traveling and supporting local small businesses. Take a peek at all the goodies Lizzy and I unboxed in our complimentary travel themed subscription boxes!
Watch the Facebook Live of the full unboxing at the bottom of this post!
What I think is so great about these Explore Local Boxes is that it’s unknown what destination you’ll be receiving. I also love that each of the boxes are filled with locally-sourced gifts. It’s such a fun way to support the local destination that the box is featuring.
Our first box was themed around the destination of Nashville, Tennessee!
Our Nashville box had some unique whisky infused popcorn, honey sticks and lip balm from a local bee farm, coloring farm cards, sweet smelling lime soap with a music city theme, and some biscuit mix. We also received a lovely city skyline print which I forgot to photograph (you can see it in the live unboxing below).
Next we unboxed a Boston destination theme.
Our Boston box featured a hardcover book about the underground world of Boston, a photograph card, hand-stamped tea towel, caramels, chocolate, jam, and a sea themed spice mix.
A cool thing is that each box contains little fact cards about the destination. It’s filled with some fun facts about the destination, and they were a hit with my girls.
This would be a great gift idea for the traveler on your Christmas gift list! It’s also a great gift to yourself if you love exploring local destinations and want to have local goodies delivered every month to your door! You can also purchase past boxes. The cost for an Explore Local Box subscription is $34.99, but there is a slight discount if you choose a 3 month or 6 month subscription prepay.
