Why is it so hard to pick out a Mother’s Day gift? Maybe because your mom has given you so much that there’s nothing in a box that can say enough. What might help? Several boxes. As in, an ongoing subscription gift that shows your mom how much you love her — month after month.

There are so many options in this category it’s hard to know where to begin. No worries. We scoured the internet to come up with a curated collection with something for any mom. What they all have in common: For the right recipient, they’re personal. And isn’t that the key to a great Mother’s Day present? It’s a chance to say, “I see you, Mom — not just as a parent, but as a person. I know who you are, and I love you. Now break open that wine and let’s have a glass.” (Okay, that last part is maybe a bit self-serving.)

Happy Mother’s Day — and if you’re a mom, don’t forget to pick a subscription for yourself too. We have one here you’re sure to love.
