Yeah, I know, Mother’s Day is in like two minutes, but it’s not too late to grab one of these nifty subscription boxes for mom! Some of them will even ship before the 9th! For those that won’t, you can always print out a gift receipt or a picture. Check them out!
10 Nifty Subscription Boxes for Mom
FYI, this post uses affiliate links. If you make a purchase through them, I get a small kickback at no extra cost to you. Thanks!
According to CrateJoy, as of 5/2, these boxes below ship in time for Mother’s Day. Now, whether they actually arrive on time depends on SO many factors, like where you live, how slow your mail is (in my area, letters still take a week to go from one town to the next!) and so on.
If you don’t think your gift will arrive on time, you can always do what I do. Just print out a picture of the subscription box for mom and stick it in a wrapped box. Another idea: make her a special Mother’s Day brunch as her “on the day of” gift and tell her there’s something special coming for her in the mail later.
1. Laurel & Reed
Laurel & Reed is a monthly box of luxury, cruelty-free beauty and skincare products. All products are vegan and many are organic.
The Laurel & Reed team curates the boxes to include products for nails, hair, skin, and for the home, so mom has everything you need to feel her best.
The box starts at $43.95 per month and contains 4-5 items from a curated selection of brands.
BloomsyBox is a monthly subscription service that delivers a box of hand-selected flowers to your door. I had a chance to check out one of their boxes back when I was doing the 2019 holiday gift guide. They cut the blooms to order, so the flowers really do last a long time. Plus, they’re positively gorgeous!
Boxes start at $41 and come in 4 different size options.
3. Explore Local Box
Can’t travel? No problem! This box lets you explore a new US city every month through food & other products. Boxes include neat artisan goodies and tasty food items locally produced by small businesses from month’s city.

4. Gusto di Roma
Gusto di Roma is a monthly subscription box of authentic Italian food. Each Gusto di Roma box is curated by an Italian-American family living in Rome that faithfully taste-tests each product to ensure that your mom gets only the best of the best.
It’s a bit pricier, starting at $84.99 for 5-6 items, but it’s such a unique gift for foodies that it’s worth it.

The Call Number library inspired book subscription box is a monthly box for avid readers. Each month, mom gets 4-5 books with a retail value of $50+, all hand-picked by an actual librarian.

As I said, while CrateJoy has these all listed under “ships in time for Mother’s Day” right now, whether it arrives in time or not depends on when you’re reading this, when you actually order, and how slow the mail is in your area.
If it’s just way too late for Mother’s Day, keep these subscription boxes for mom in mind for birthdays, anniversaries, or “just because” days.
