Gift Guide: Subscription Services for Moms

I love the holidays, but I also find holiday shopping to be stressful. Most of us have a few people on our list who are hard to choose gifts for – I know I do!
One way to make your life easier is to give monthly subscription services as gifts. So I thought I’d share a few ideas of subscription service gifts any mom would love!
Wine Subscriptions — If you know someone who enjoys a nice glass of Pinot at the end of a long day, this is a no brainer. There are a ton of different services — I personally have used the Wall Street Journal Wine Club with my siblings as a group gift for my parents. You can pick red or white for your cases and you can also freeze a shipment if you want to make the gift last even longer!
Coffee of the Month — Perhaps even more than wine, moms need that caffeine! This kind of subscription is a good way to give someone a chance to branch out and try some different roasts. I’m eternally and hopelessly devoted to my Dunkin Donuts’ coffee, but even I would enjoy experimenting with some new flavors and I love the smell of good, fresh coffee beans.
Beauty Subscriptions — Most moms would love to try out some new beauty products, and there are companies that will send monthly boxes of everything from cosmetics to bath products, many also offer coupons for discounted purchases of sample products on their site. Here are some great ideas I saw on ModernChicMag.com:
- Birchbox — Beauty samples for as little as $10 a month.
- MyGlam — Try different samples and get discounts on any full-sized items you choose to buy.
Food — There are a lot of great food of the month clubs, for cheese or meats or other foods. And we have to include our partner Love With Food. Their sample food bites are delicious and things you might never otherwise try, plus they donate a meal to someone in need for every box purchased!
