    21 Subscriptions For Travelers Who’ve Been Stuck At Home All Year

    Wanderlust, be gone.

    1. A Try The World box which features gourmet food items from a specific country. Think drinks, snacks, and special ingredients you could use to make a home-cooked meal worthy of an international vacation.

    2. A bookish box from The Wordy Traveler. They'll receive books and other items from a different country every quarter, so they get ~explore~ a good book instead of lamenting over their canceled trips.

    4. A quarterly box of camping supplies from The Camp Life — the camper (or glamper) who would rather be sitting under the stars than on their couch. Because who doesn't need an extra set of utensils or a pair of warm yet cute socks?
