Subscription boxes are the Mother’s Day gifts that keep giving month after month. It’s something thoughtful, but Mom gets to be the one to personalize it to her tastes. To get the perfect subscription box for Mother’s Day, readers just need to know a little about what their family matriarch likes.

Sips by — If Mom loves a nice cup of hot tea, this is perfect for her. Sips by has premium teas from all over the world, and they’ll match four to each customer every month based on their preferences. Each box makes 15 cups or 45 re-steeped cups. Reusable and biodegradable filters are included as needed and they’ll even throw in some recipes from experts. Gift subscriptions start at $45 for three-month gift card.

Therabox — Even if you’re not sure what exactly your mom likes, there’s a pretty good chance you know that she could use some relaxation. Therabox, a box curated by therapists, is for just that. Each box includes one activity that’s designed to help mental health, whether that’s setting intentions, journaling or other strategies. The box also includes six to eight self-care products. Past boxes have included items like tea, bath salts, incense, chocolate and journals. Plans start at $34.99 for a single month.

Book of the Month — Most mothers need the occasional escape, and the fastest way to step into a new world is to open a book. Book of the Month lets gift recipients pick from one from a selection of five hardcover books each month, and BOTM always has buzzy, brand-new titles. Options start from $44.99 for a three-month subscription. With the code MOMKNOWSBEST, the gifter also gets a free month and $10 off when they give a six- or 12-month subscription.

WineSociety — Some just moms need their vino, and a WineSociety box will give them exactly that. The premium variety pack will give them three premium 500 ml cans of wine (a red, white and rosé) for $49. The subscription will then be quarterly with 9 cans per quarter ($99 per box), which she can pick out based on her preference. If you’re trying to stick to a budget, there is an option to order the three pack as a one-time box.

Even if your subscription box can’t be delivered in time for Mother’s Day, presentation matters. Be sure to include a card explaining her new gift subscription, and some moms might also appreciate a little help setting up the account.
