This year for Mother’s Day, we wanted to be sure to round up some of the best subscription boxes for mom out there. After all, mail is a bit delayed right now, making standard shipping a risk for last-minute gifts in some cases. We also know that moms are needing a lot of extra love this year, and a thoughtful, well-made subscription box is such a great way to keep reminding her how much she’s appreciated.

Here are some of our picks for the best subscription boxes for moms, with ideas from the bigger brands you recognize to indie shops who could really use the support right now.

But of course, whatever you pick will be the very best one. Because it will be sent with love.

We may earn a small commission when you shop through affiliate links on this page, which helps support the work of our own small business at no additional expense to you. So, thank you!

Snacky food subscription boxes often get saved for Father’s Day, but let’s be honest: moms like to snack. A lot.  Especially on yummy small-batch gourmet treats, like artisan strawberry tarts and handcrafted rosemary & olive oil popcorn.

For the new mom or mom-to-be:
Oh Baby Subscription Boxes

I feel so much for new moms right now who aren’t able to get the hands-on help many of us had with our own new babies. If you have a new mom in your family, or someone who’s expecting consider treating her to a subscription box for Mother’s Day that is all about her as a new mom, not about the baby. In other words: no bibs or bottles, thankyouverymuch. Love that each of these subscription boxes are curated around her due date, so she won’t be getting Preggy Pops once the baby is already here. (Though they are pretty good!)
