A fun subscription box is a great way to let your mom—or the mother of your children—know that you love her on Mother's Day and throughout the year. Typically you start a subscription, and it continues monthly or seasonally for a set number of boxes or until you end the subscription. Getting a series of subscription boxes is a fun surprise that any mom would enjoy!

As a mom myself, subscription boxes are a luxury I probably wouldn't buy for myself, but I would certainly enjoy every one of these! As I mentioned, I buy the Harry & David Fruit-of-the-Month-Club (opens in new tab) for my own mom every year, and it covers Mother's Day and all of the other holidays throughout the year! She calls it "the gift that keeps on giving." There are various add-ons such as candy, cheese, jellies, flowers, and other treats that you can add if you wish to make May stand out from the rest of the year. My mom just likes the fruit, though! Harry & David picks the fruit at the height of the season, so don't expect the box to arrive on the same date each month. It arrives when the fruit is ready! I've found their customer service to be great; any time there's been a mishap with delivery, they've made it right.

Another one that really catches my eye is the very affordable Simple Loose Leaf Tea Subscription Box (opens in new tab). I drink tea all day every day; hot in the winter, iced in the summer. I get tired of the same few teas over and over and love to rotate flavors.

But you know what Mom would love even more than a box of goodies every month or season? A phone call or a visit from you (hopefully more frequently than that!) The gift of your time is the most meaningful of all for the special woman who raised you. If you're buying for the mother of your young children, let them give her their gifts, hugs, and kisses, and then maybe take charge of them for a little bit so she can have some time to herself.
