If you’re scratching your head over what to give your mom for Mother’s Day, here’s a gift idea you may have overlooked: Some of the best subscription boxes for women just so happen to make fantastic Mother’s Day gifts, too. Whether you’re tackling your shopping with weeks to spare before May 8 or scrambling at the last minute, a subscription box that speaks to her interests, tastes, and hobbies will make a wonderful gift for your mom’s big day—and it will extend the joy for weeks and months after.
Whereas some monthly subscription boxes are easy to sign up for in another person’s name, some subscription services are better given in the form of a gift card, especially if signing up involves answering a survey or filling out a taste profile online. Either way, your gift will most likely arrive to your mom via email, so she’ll receive it in moments, no shipping required (and she can set the delivery in motion in her own time, once she makes her selections).
With Mother’s Day rapidly approaching, we’ve curated a list of the best subscription boxes for women available now, from beauty subscription boxes like Birchbox and Ipsy to fresh flower subscriptions like The Bouqs Co. and UrbanStems to lifestyle boxes and fitness-focused ones like TheraBox and FabFitFun. You’ll find gifts that are good for your friends too, as well as yourself. Whatever your end goal, from crafting to coffee, there’s a subscription box you or an important person in your life are sure to love, month after month.
