Looking for a perfect Mother’s Day gift that keeps on giving all year long? A subscription box loaded with your mom’s favorite things is a great way to keep the thoughtful gifts coming long after Mother’s Day.
Trying to pick out the perfect Mother’s Day gift right now isn’t as easy as it usually is. You can’t go out to the store to scope things out in person, and you’ve probably been so stressed, anxious, and preoccupied that you, well … kind of forgot to buy something. On top of all that, you may not even be able to see your mom this Mother’s Day, so you have to ship something to her.
Subscription boxes make a great gift option: they get delivered right to her, and you really don’t have to do any work aside from typing out your credit card number. Plus, they’re the gift that keep on giving if you order more than just one monthly box. And, there’s an endless variety of them out there, so there’s something for every type of mom.
For The Style Lover: Stitchfix
Everyone might be living in sweatpants and sweatshirts right now, but there will come a point when we all wear real clothes again. At that point, your mom will love having a Stitchfix box arrive at her door. Stitchfix is a style box full of clothes, shoes, and other accessories, all curated for the person receiving it.
It’s easy to use: you fill out a style quiz, which is a pretty in-depth questionnaire about what you like to wear and what you want to wear in the future. From there, you get a stylist who picks out a whole bunch of clothing and accessory options for you. The box arrives each month, then you have some time to try everything on and decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back. You pay for whatever you keep, so if you decide not to keep anything, you don’t pay anything aside from the stylist fee.

For Mom and Baby: Bluum
Bluum is the perfect box for the new mom in your life (it’s a really great first Mother’s Day gift option). The box is full of the best-reviewed baby, toddler, and mom products based on Amazon reviews, customer reviews (re: real moms), and Bluum team expertise. That means that you don’t just get things for baby, you get things for mom, too, which is a nice touch.
The other great thing about Bluum is that you know what you’re getting: each month, they send you an email with the contents of your box to review. If you don’t like it, you can choose another one that suits you better. It’s a nice way to ensure you’re not getting things you don’t really need or want.

For The Reader: Book of the Month Club
If your mom loves to read, then she probably needs a new really good book right about now. Book of the Month is a highly rated subscription box that sends new books to your house each month. The creators behind the box go through hundreds of selections of new books before picking just five that make the cut for that month. You sign in, look through the selected five for the month, and choose the one (or more) you want to receive.
This means you know you’re getting something you’re interested in, which is important, and it’s a great way to stay up to date on new books coming out. Some are early releases, so you can’t get them anywhere else, and most are cheaper ($9.99 for the first month, $14.99 each after that) than they would be in the bookstore or even on Amazon.

For The Chic Mom: Vellabox
Is your mom constantly burning a candle in her home? Does she have an eye for decor? If you can answer yes to either one or both of those questions, it’s a safe bet that she’ll love Vellabox as a gift. This candle subscription box sends chic candles every single month, so there’s always something new to burn, even when you start to run low.
You get to choose which size box you want (it starts at as low as $10 a month) and then you get a curated selection of candles delivered to your door once a month. Scents are usually chosen by the season, and everything is made of natural ingredients. It’s a great way to discover new scents and new brands, and it’s sure to turn anyone into a candle lover.

For The Skincare Lover: Facetory
Facetory is such a fun box for any mom who is really into the beauty world and skincare. Unlike makeup boxes, this one is entirely focused on skincare items like moisturizers, cleansers, and masks, and it’s all Korean beauty, which makes it even more fun and interesting.
There are two different options for Facetory: the 7 Lux subscription, which sends seven sheet masks plus one or two bonus items each month; or the Lux Plus subscription, which sends five to six skincare products and five to six sheet masks. Pick which one your mom would like and go from there!

For The Mom Who Loves Knick Knacks: The Boxy Momma
The Boxy Momma is a treat for any mom, who probably doesn’t spend as much time doing little things for herself as she does with anyone else. The whole box is full of little items she doesn’t exactly need, but ones that might make her life easier, help her indulge in some self-care, or just look cute on her vanity.
Every box contains five to seven items that are designed to “help you survive mom life.” There are items to help you stay organized, snacks, cleaning products, some beauty items … it’s really a pretty random mix. That kind of makes it even more fun, though: you never know exactly what you’re going to get.

For The Makeup Lover: Ipsy
Think your mom would love receiving new makeup and other beauty products every month to play around with? If so, get her an Ipsy subscription. This popular makeup subscription box lives up to the hype, delivering new beauty products each month with boxes featuring great brands and new finds.
There are three subscription options here. Glam Bag is $12 a month and sends 5 deluxe sample sized items to your door each month. Glam Bag Plus is $25 a month and includes 5 full-size products. Glam Bag Ultimate is $50 a month and includes 12 products. These are all great deals for the price, and it’s so fun to try it out. I also love that each Ipsy box comes with a cute little makeup bag that you’ll use a million different ways.

For The Spiritual Mama: Goddess Provisions
Goddess Provisions is the perfect box for the mom who is into crystals, loves a good visit to the psychic, and pays attention to things like moon phases. It doesn’t include anything your mom needs, but that’s kind of the beauty of it. The box is meant to encourage whoever is receiving it to step back and take a break for at least a few minutes—something your mom probably really needs.
Each box contains five to seven items that can include everything from beauty products to crystals to aromatherapy to healthy snacks and teabags. Everything is cruelty-free and vegan, so you can feel good about using it.

For The Wino: Vinebox
Who couldn’t use a little extra wine right now? Vinebox is a great way to introduce your mom to new brands and flavors, and to help her have a little wine tasting in the comfort of her own home every month.
Vinebox sends nine sample sizes of the season’s best wines, with each little container equaling one perfect glass of wine. It’s an excellent way to try new things and discover your new favorite—and if you don’t like something, you’re not wasting an entire bottle. Every kind of wine is available for purchase if you love it, and members receive full-bottle credits as well.

For Some Self-Care: Hygee Box
Hygee is a Danish and Norweigan word for a feeling of coziness and happiness. It’s all about feeling safe and cozy, doing something you love and feeling wonderful. It’s about focusing on that moment—and that’s exactly what the Hygee Box tries to help you do. It’s essentially a box of self-care.
There are two types of subscriptions: the Deluxe Hygee Box that comes with five to seven handpicked seasonal items for $36.50 each month, or the Standard Hygee Box that comes with four to five items for $25 a month. Each box has items like elements of light with candles or fairy lights, hot drinks like tea or cocoa, indulgent snacks, and, in the Deluxe, home decor items.

For The Flower Enthusiast: Bouqs
Why get your mom one bouquet of flowers when you could get her a subscription to ensure she has fresh flowers all the time? Bouqs allows you to pick from three curated collections, then customize the plan to figure out exactly how often you want to receive it.
You’ll receive freshly cut flowers that last longer and look beautiful. The three collections are Farmer’s Market (think rustic and bold), The Classics (single flower bouquets), and Roses (single and multi-colored rose bouquets).

For The Gourmet: Murray’s Cheese Board of the Month
Any mom who loves food and entertaining will love receiving Murray’s Cheese Board of the Month box—even right now, when she gets to eat all the cheese herself. This box is a monthly selection of everything you need to build the most perfect cheese board.
Each box includes one to three selections of cheese, one to two charcuterie items, and one to three accompaniments, like olives or crackers. Each box also has step-by-step instructions on how to cut and serve each item so that you can create an Instagram-ready cheeseboard in moments.
