7 Subscription Box Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day (2021)

Although Mother’s Day comes but once a year—that’s May 9, 2021, in case you forgot—you can spread the love out over 12 months with a subscription box for Mom. Whether she is into kale smoothies, a collector of photo frames, or a lover of road trips, there’s a good subscription box out there to show her how much you appreciate her each month. 

Ready to sign Mom up and make this the best Mother’s Day ever? Take a look at these 7 great subscription boxes if you need a Mother’s Day gift idea this year.

For Moms Always on the Road

The Freshie Box ($16)

Freshie Box for Cars

Babies: They’re cute yet disgusting. Dirty diapers. Spit-up. More dirty diapers. It’s safe to say that Mom’s Honda Odyssey has seen smelled better days. 

With the Freshie Box, that Odyssey can get back to smelling like a vehicle, not a diaper pail. This bi-monthly car subscription box comes with a specially designed and scented air freshener that hangs conveniently on the rearview mirror. These aren’t generic “Fresh Pine” or “Clean Linen” scents, either; each aroma is a unique fragrance that you won’t find on the shelves of your local auto parts store. It’s a great Mother’s Day gift for new moms who seemingly live behind the steering wheel.


For Moms You Don’t See Often Enough

Grandbox ($26+)


The last year has been incredibly difficult for everyone. We’ve all lost a lot of time with family, time we won’t ever get back. A personalized Grandbox car package won’t turn back the clock, but it will let Mom (and Grandma) know that she’s on your mind. 

A Grandbox subscription box comes packed with treats, snacks, personal care items, puzzles and games. But those aren’t the prizes; Mom or Grandma will also receive a personalized letter or note from you, as well as up to four recent photos of everyone in the family. Yet, while this Mother’s Day gift box offers the gift that keeps giving (photos, of course), nothing can compete with a phone call once in a while. 


For Moms Who Need Coffee to Survive

Trade ($20+)

Trade Coffee Subscription

Set up a monthly subscription to Trade, and Mom will never be without a morning cup of joe again. Trade “connects you with coffee from the nation’s top roasters—delivered to your door, on your schedule,” which makes it ultra-convenient. 

Best of all, Trade selects a unique coffee every shipment, each of which has been curated and tailored to match Mom’s personal tastes. Decaf or regular, whole-bean or ground, bold or light, Mom will have more than 400 types of java to choose from. 


For Moms Who Like a Good Mystery

Hunt a Killer ($25+)

Hunt A Killer

Fans of true-crime podcasts like My Favorite Murder and The Last Podcast on the Left will find it difficult to put away the Hunt a Killer box—at least, not until the mystery has been solved. 

Over the course of 6 subscription boxes, Mom (and the family, if she’s willing to share) will solve the mystery by searching for clues, reading documents, analyzing witness statements, and more. Each of these clues will push you farther down the rabbit hole, and the only way out is to find the murderer. 


For Moms Who’ve Gone Green

Earthlove ($60+)

Earthlove Box

The best gift to get an eco-conscious mom is an equally eco-conscious car like the 2021 Honda Clarity. But if you can’t swing a 0.9% APR* loan on a Clarity PHEV, the next best option might be a Mother’s Day subscription box from Earthlove.

Mom will open her first quarterly Earthlove box to find a delectable assortment of high-quality, sustainably sourced and all-natural products from many of the planet’s best eco-friendly companies. These products include healthy snacks, teas, books, aromatherapy items, gardening tools, decor, apparel, and many more. A portion of every purchase is donated to an important environmental-protection cause, as well. 

Earthlove’s self-proclaimed philosophy is simple at its core: Help conserve the earth for future generations. Sounds like everyone should be on board. 


For Moms Who Enjoy Arts and Crafts

Maker Crate ($25+)

Maker Crate

Don’t make a macaroni necklace for Mom—that’s so 1993. Instead, give her the gift of craft and create some art together. 

With the Maker Crate from KiwiCo, you and Mom can enjoy a few hours tinkering with STEM projects, painting pots, sewing pillow casings, or simply doodling. Simply choose the ideal hands-on crate based on your mom’s personal tastes, and your perfect Mother’s Day present will find its way to her front door in no time. 


For Moms Who Take Pride in Their Ride

GloveBox ($32+)

GloveBox - Car Wash Subscription Box

While it may not seem like a car gift for Mother’s Day, GloveBox is an excellent option for any mom who’s on a first-name basis with the attendants at her local carwash. (Read our expert tips for hand-washing your car in Arizona.)

The monthly Perfectionist GloveBox is the best bet, as it comes packed with products from premium brands, special how-to guides, and additional “surprises” to help Arizona drivers protect their vehicles. All items in the GloveBox are hand picked and valued at up to $125.
