Have you ever wanted to purchase a subscription box for a friend or loved one but kind of chickened out? I know I have! But as the recipient of some awesome subscription boxes, I know how much fun they can be, and they are popping up all over!
As the person PAYING for the box, you hope it will be worth the money and that the other person will like it … but it can be hard to know! So I was super excited when I was recently introduced to My Subscription Addiction, a site that reviews subscription boxes in great detail. The website’s founder, Liz Bensink, personally reviews the boxes, and then comments and reviews are opened up to other people.
I thought I’d share some subscription boxes I have enjoyed personally, as well as some that Liz recommends that are great for moms. To be clear, these boxes are not sponsoring this post! These are mine and Liz’s opinions only. You’ll have to let me know if you’ve enjoyed others!
So here we go:
10 Awesome and Unique Subscription Boxes for Moms
Olive Box 1 of 10
$25 a month
I was gifted Olive Box by a sponsor I worked with, and I LOVED getting it! In fact, I'm super sad my subscription is up! Olive Box would be a great gift for a hip and stylish mom who appreciates paper, stationary, art books, and other charming goodies.

Hammock Pack Box 4 of 10

This is a great gift for the mama who's got a serious case of wanderlust, but is landlocked by a toddler or newborn!

Elizabeth & Clarke Box 5 of 10

Elizabeth & Clarke specializes in high-quality tops and blouses. You get a new box of seasonal tops each quarter ($30 for one top, $50 for two, $60 for three). The clothing is great for work or casual settings, and you get to pick out the shirts you want. This would be a really thoughtful gift for the working mama who seriously doesn't have time to shop.

WhimseyBox 6 of 10
$15 a month
Ok, obviously this is MY type of box! It's for crafty mamas! Each WhimseyBox includes craft supplies, a project idea, a cool print, and the box itself is a nice storage box. I've seen these boxes in person and met the creator, and it's a really quality product. Plus, the creator has a fun blog and really good taste. This is a great box for a creative mom, and it falls on the less expensive end of the price scale.

A Kitchen Box is a new subscription service that sends you a full kitchen experience each month. Each box centers around a theme (their inaugural box was a Cheese Tasting collection), and includes everything from recipe suggestions to kitchen tools to an artisan food item. This would be a fun gift for your foodie mama friend or something to tell your partner to get you! I know I'd want it!

The Period Store 8 of 10
$15-$30 a month depending on your "flow" hahaha
Ok, so this one might be hard to gift to anyone other than your sister, but you should totally consider gifting it to yourself! The Period Store box sends you everything you need to survive your period, including your choice of feminine products, chocolate, meds, and tea. I love this idea, because instead of dreading your period, you'll be stoked to receive a package each month! Like I said, this might be hard to gift, but then again it could be a fun gift for a new mom who has just gotten her period again (after giving birth) and is pretty bummed about it! I know I was.

The GOOD Box from Level Naturals 9 of 10
$15 a month plus shipping
Level Naturals is "changing the world one shower at a time", and I'm totally on board. These products are super well-designed and look amazing. It's like a monthly mini spa subscription. Each month you receive two shower bombs, a vegan and gluten-free bar of soap, a soy travel candle, and one extra surprise!

For the Makers Box 10 of 10
$29 a month
Because I'm a crafty mama, I had to add in one more box I've been hearing good buzz about — the For the Makers box. These boxes come with chic materials to make DIYs inspired by runway trends. We're not talking the regular craft supplies you find at Hobby Lobby — this is fancy stuff! So this would be a good gift for your super fashionable friend!
