Being a mom is full of so many precious life-changing moments, but it also comes with its fair share of challenges. For instance, when you constantly have an infant attached to your hip (and breast), it can be super difficult to find some much-needed mommy-only time. So since Mother’s Day is fast approaching, we thought we would celebrate the moms in our lives by giving them a gift that keeps giving. From trendy workout gear to blissful self-care goodies, here are 24 subscription boxes that will make any mom swoon.
1. Prime Book Box ($23/box): Reading to your kiddos is one of life’s greatest pleasures, but getting down to a bookstore as a new mom can quickly turn into an outing from hell. Recently, Amazon announced the release of their new Prime Book Box subscription service that delivers hand-picked children’s books every one, two, or three months. Each box contains two discounted hardcover books or four board books, and the box is customizable for different age ranges (from baby to 12 years old). Plus, we love that she can preview and tailor the books before she receives them!
2. Bluum ($34/month): This monthly subscription service is made for busy parents who want to discover new products for their babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. Each box includes four or more full-sized products (think toys, books, travel trays, etc.) curated based on her child’s birth date and gender.
3. 21 Bundles ($40+/month): Designed especially for pregnant women and new mommas, 21 Bundles delivers monthly bundles of natural products to help make raising a little one a little less stressful. Each box is tailored to her stage of pregnancy or her baby’s age and offers four to six full-sized products (plus, she’ll sometimes receive additional samples and travel size gifts too). The boxes often including skincare items, bath and body goodies, and wellness teas, making them a great gift for a new mom who’s adamant about only using nontoxic and chemical-free products.
4. Fittedtot ($20/box): You sat with your pregnant bestie while she planned out all of her baby’s outfits on her curated Pinterest board, but now that her bundle of joy is finally here, she’s finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with her baby’s Instagram-worthy style. Luckily, there’s a subscription service for that! Fittedtot is basically Stitch Fix for tots. After taking a quick style profile quiz for the baby, one of their Tot Stylists will curate a box full of trendy boutique clothing for her little one (sizes 3M to 5T). Each box has a $20 styling fee, but if you choose to pay for more than two items, the fee is credited to your order (the average price per item is $30).
5. Ecocentric Mom ($33/month): Calling all eco-friendly mommas! This fun environmentally conscious subscription box is packed to the brim with organic, natural, and eco-lifestyle products (think beauty, bath, pregnancy, baby, home, and snack). Every box is curated based on her due date or child’s birth date (up to four years old) and is guaranteed to contain at least four products.
6. Mommy Mailbox ($34+/month): It’s super important to schedule some mommy-only time to decompress from all the stresses of being a new mom — which is why the Mommy Mailbox subscription service is so perfect! Once a month, she’ll open the mail to find a box filled with four to six gifts including makeup, beauty, jewelry, treats, fashion, stationery, and more. Trust us, it’ll be a welcome pick-me-up to help get her through those rough days.
7. Bloomsy Box ($40+/month): Even if home décor is her thing, we can almost guarantee that most new moms won’t have the time to cut and style fresh flowers during their first few months of motherhood. Bloomsy Box is a subscription service that sends hand-picked fresh flowers from sustainable farms around the globe. Arriving in a specially designed box that won’t wilt or crush the flowers, this customizable flower subscription service will be a blooming success (sorry, we had to).

From making beautiful gemstone soap bars to crafting a chic string art wall-hanging, it’s definitely a fun gift for the mom who loves to craft.
10. Vellabox ($10+/month): Who doesn’t love burning a delicious smelling candle?
