From Birchbox to Plated to Stitch Fix, these are the best subscription boxes to give mom this Mother's Day.
Not sure what to get mom this Mother's Day—or worse, did the holiday completely slip your mind until just now? Consider signing her up for a subscription to one of the services below. We love gifting subscription boxes; not only do they make for a great last-minute gift, but she'll be able to continue receiving them (and think of you) long after Mother's Day has ended. Here, a few of our favorites to give this year.
If she loves to cook, there's no better gift than a few nights of pre-planned meals courtesy of the subscription service Plated. We love that the company recently expanded their selection of dishes that accommodate different dietary preferences, so mom will have no problem finding recipes that suit her gluten-free, dairy-free, or low-carb meal plan. The website also allows for easy customization of your gift; choose the number of weeks, days, and even servings you'd like to give.
Who doesn't love an unexpected Birchbox delivery? Choose between three-, six-, and 12-month gift subscriptions of the super-popular beauty boxes. Each will include five beauty samples tailored to mom's specific style, featuring coveted brands like Oribe, Kiehl's, Benefit, and more.
For $21 a month, this jewelry delivery service will send mom three stunning loaner baubles from designers like Kendra Scott and Kate Spade. If she falls in love with something she receives, she can purchase it (while applying her $21 monthly credit). Or, she can return pieces as often as she likes each month and receive new necklaces, earrings, and more in their place. Gift subscriptions start at $49 for a three-month membership.
Her closet just got a whole lot better. With Gwynnie Bee's plus-size clothing delivery service, mom will receive a selection of outfits from top brands each month; she can wear each item as many times as she likes before returning, or buy it at a discount if she can't bear to send something back.
For the ultimate spring style refresh, consider gifting mom a Stitch Fix gift card subscription. After taking a detailed quiz, she'll be set up with a dedicated stylist who will curate the perfect delivery of on-trend pieces to update her wardrobe (she can purchase the items she likes, and easily return anything she doesn't). The service allows for incredible customization; say, for example, mom has plenty of jeans but could use some fresh blouses, she can specify that in her order so she receives exactly what she needs. Also cool: Starting in May, Stitch Fix will be able to send Nike apparel—great news for fitness lovers.
