Our Local Box Subscription Box Review

Our Local Box Review


Our Local Box is a gourmet subscription service that offers the best a local community has to offer- luxurious spa products, delicious beverages, scrumptious sweets…but it’s all from Kentucky!    Many of us don’t get around to local shops and businesses to support the local economy, but often, if you look, you will find some of the most fabulous products that are locally sourced and handmade by people in your own hometown.

I’m not from Kentucky and honestly, I had no idea what to expect from my first Our Local Box- but I loved the concept.  Each box highlights a different product from a local business or entrepreneur.  Of course, you can feel the tug at your heartstrings when you support a local business owner and bolster the grassroots economy, but beyond that- these are top notch products.  Our Local Box gives you a chance to sample the unexplored and to savor a bit of culture you might have overlooked, and trust me, it’s delicious!


Our Local Box, as stated, left me curious as to what I would receive and it over delivered.  The packaging was clean and crisp, the presentation was fun and the products were scrumptious, plus the service itself is like a monthly adventure to explore a bit of Kentucky even if you’ve never been!

So, is Our Local Box Worth It?

Value:  $41.00+

Cost:  $30.00


Our Local Box is a chance to not only support local artisans, craftsmen/women and business owners, but a chance to explore the local economy with touch, taste and smell.   I can say I was not only satisfied with the items in the box (meaning everything was friggin’ yummy) but I loved that this was a truly unique experience.  Our Local Box isn’t like most subscription services that throws a bunch of generic samples in a box, you get something hand crafted, hand picked and then it’s delivered to your door (also by someone’s hand…thanks postal workers!).  Gourmet, handcrafted, local and awesome.
I couldn’t have picked better items myself and I was totally impressed with the selection- I used everything in this box and feel it was of the highest quality.  You will pay more to support small businesses, but the quality is bar none and this is a great value for the monthly subscription cost.  Hands down, I love Our Local Box.

  1. This is really cool! I love the concept, and maybe this is a terrible thing to say, but I never realized Kentucky would be the place to find an awesomely curated local/indie sub box! (Kentuckians, feel free to harpoon me.)

      Nah, it’s all good..I think there are hidden gems in every state- this box was really a fun surprise for me too, I had no idea what I’d find! Loved it though!

      Hey Sarah!

      Don’t worry, I thought the same thing before moving to Kentucky in 2009. Fast forward four years, I am proud to be a Kentuckian. Louisville is actually the most progressive city that I’ve ever lived in. We’re glad that we can share this with the world. 🙂

    This is awesome. <3

  3. I like the concept of packaging products from local businesses into a monthly subscription service. This isn’t a new concept but it sure is a way to highlight some great local businesses close to you that you might have overlooked.

  4. Oh, that’s so nifty!!!
    Maybe one day you’ll get some famous Kentucky bourbon next go around.

    Wow, there are a lot of these subscription boxes popping up but this is the first I’ve heard of Local Box. I looked at the website and thought I’d put in my zip code and subscribe to the one most ‘local’ to me but this is strictly local to Kentucky. Still cool though and sounds like some very interesting products come in it. I currently do Conscious Box and Love With Food (for every box purchased they feed a hungry child!!!). Thanks for introducing one I hadn’t heard of! <3
