'A Box From' is a service that "picks out the best from a city and puts it in a box." The curation of items provides a small taste of offerings from a particular region like food and other city-specific oddities.

The first seven-item package from Seoul cost 30 Euros and contained stickers, chocolate sticks, circular sticky pads, a collagen face mask, noodles, notepads and brown rice tea. The boxes from Seoul have completely sold out, but a new package from a different city will be available soon on

If you can't travel, this is a great way to inject a little culture into your life; not to mention the special curation of items would make an amazing care package for someone who is missing the small comforts of home. Stats for City-Specific Care Packages Trending: Older & Chilly
