11 Subscription Box Gift Ideas We’ve Actually Given to Moms
We think subscription boxes make great gifts, no matter what the holiday – boxes that show up every month are the original “gifts that keep on giving”! Mother’s Day is no exception, and we love the idea of giving our moms and the other wonderful women in our lives something fun and indulgent each month. Here is our list of boxes that My Subscription Addiction reviewers have actually given for Mother’s Day and more:
The Box: POPSUGAR Must Have
The Cost: $39.95/month
COUPON: Use coupon code MUSTHAVE5 to save $5 off your first box.
The Products: “Must Have” items for women selected by POPSUGAR editors. (Fitness, Home, Beauty, Food, and more)
Gifted To: Liz gifted a 1-year subscription to her mom for Christmas
What Makes This a Great Gift: “POPSUGAR Must Have has a lot of variety in items, so there’s always a few things she loves in the box. Plus, every month she calls me as she’s opening her box to let me know what she thinks of each item and ask me questions. We have a monthly POPSUGAR tradition, now :)”
Jess also gifted this box to a friend going through a rough patch: “I think lifestyle boxes like PopSugar pack a lot of punch for not too much money. She was having a tough time and I thought a Box with some fun surprises would be just the way to cheer her up. It worked!”

I think this is a box that really any woman would appreciate.”

The Subscription Box: The GlobeIn Artisan Gift Box
The Cost: Regularly $45/month, but a 3-month gift subscription is $38/month
COUPON: Save $10 on a 3+ month Artisan Box subscription with coupon code MSAWELCOME
The Products: Handcrafted items from around the world
What Makes This a Great Gift: From Chris: “I think this makes a great gift because GlobeIn always has interesting and useful products that you wouldn’t necessarily see every day. Also my love mom really cares about giving back and GlobeIn does a good job of that as well as being packaged in a way that is attractive and immediately giftable.”
From Lacey: “I’ve always thought Globein was a perfect fit for my mom’s style – a little bohemian but also totally functional. She’s going through a phase where she’s downsizing a lot, so I like that Globein has a lot of options for gifting: I ended up picking up a past box as a one-time gift instead of recurring. But if she loves it I’m likely coming back for more this Christmas!”

The Box: The Honest Company Bundles
The Cost: The Diapers & Wipes Bundle is $79.99/month; you can buy a gift card in any amount you choose, which can be applied toward bundles or other products
The Products: Ingredient-conscious products for babies and families
What Makes This a Great Gift: From Sara: “My sister is a big fan of The Honest Co. and so after she had her first baby, I sent her an Honest Gift card to say congratulations! Honest offers a plethora of gift set options, along with gift cards ranging from $10-200. She was able to order the newborn necessities she needed at that point and use her balance to reorder favorites.”
Chris has gifted several of their gift sets, and added: “Everyone I give Honest Company to loves the products and loves the reusable packaging (wooden box) on the gift sets. The products are health-conscious, look nice, and are totally usable, and I am happy to share this with my friends and family.”
