The Hazel Lane website allows the armchair traveler with a soft spot for unique gifts to get her (or his) fix without leaving town.

» Name:

» What it does: Hazel Lane curates and ships monthly boxes of treats that represent a city’s spirit. Indulge in vibe-y, city-themed souvenirs after your journey when you’re feeling nostalgic.

» What’s hot: You can subscribe, or give the boxes as gifts, for one, three or six months, with five sizes to choose from and prices that range from $24.99 to $179.99 a month. You won’t know the contents of the box until it arrives. Or you can browse the website and purchase a previously curated box. Individual items such as necklaces and art prints also can be purchased separately. The Brooklyn box was full of little-known hipster products in honor of the HBO show "Girls"; the Los Angeles-themed box included fun-in-the-sun items; and the San Francisco box had a foodie theme. Moms and dads might fall in love with the Little Explorer kid boxes.

» What’s not: This is just a personal request, but I’d love to see more single gifts offered according to city.
