16 Genius Food Subscription Boxes to Get Your Mom for Mother’s Day
Growing up, my mom worked for our local news station. She had the craziest hours and I rarely got to see her during the week since I was at school and the last news broadcast was at 10 p.m. every night. With all the hard work she was doing by providing for our family, home-cooked meals were nonexistent.
Eventually, her hours changed dramatically and instead of only seeing my mom before school, she got to pick me up every day. Some days she would make dinner and other days I would just make what I wanted since that was what I was used to. I always enjoyed our family meals together. Now that I live in California and my brothers are in Kansas City, we can’t have those meals together as often as we would like back in St. Louis.
So, to make up for all those meals we missed, I thought I would do something about that. Since I can’t be there to cook for her maybe I can send some meals using food subscriptions. They’re also pretty much the gifts to get someone if you’re not totally sure what to get them. Everyone loves a subscription box.
I mean, who’s going to say no to free food that comes every week/month? Not mom! Time to show your appreciation with a meal that she doesn’t have to spend all day cooking. Every week or month, she will have the most delicious and well-deserved food from around the world.
Here are the 16 food subscriptions every type of mom will brag about for Mother’s Day.
For the world traveler…
1. Bon Appetit
Perfect for French foodie fanatics. Your mom will be opening a box full of gourmet and authentic snacks straight out of France. From Fleur de Sel Caramels to French Pure Butter Cookies, mom will never go hungry with a sweet tooth like this. There are a few more subscriptions to choose from and they usually range in the $30 a month range. Sound like the box for you? Head on over to Bon Appetit for a closer look.
So, momma likes to try new things, eh? Have you heard of this box before? It starts at $9.95 so you can definitely afford this (even at the last minute). You can choose between three boxes and they all contain snacks and goodies from around the world. Mom can travel while sitting on the couch and watching HGTV on her iPad all at the same time (at least that sounds like my mom).
For the wine and cocktail enthusiast…
3. Saloonbox Curated Cocktails
Every month, your mom will receive a new kit and recipe for that month’s theme. May’s kit was dedicated to Cinco de Mayo and Derby Day! Not only will she get checklists and directions, but top-shelf spirits and all for $37.50 a month. Sound like something mom would be into? Saloonbox will make her the life of any party.
Here we go, what every mother dreams of. WINE. EVERY. MONTH. Vinebox delivers three samples from all over the world to your mother’s kitchen. Starting at $25 a month, you’ll also find tasting notes, recommendations, and pairings inside this subscription box.

You can choose from smoothies, parfaits, bowls, sundaes, soups, and lattes. So if your momma is looking to eat a bit healthier or this is already her lifestyle, Daily Harvest might be perfect for her. Honestly, I might order this for myself.

Besides being aesthetically appealing, Green Blender offers some of the healthiest drinks out there. Choose your recipes and they will be delivered fresh to your mom’s door in an insulated box. All that is left to do is blend for the easiest breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
