The mail moms will want to open

Remember how exciting getting mail was when you were a kid? Each day you’d race to the mailbox, and if you were lucky there would be some stickers or maybe even a birthday card for you to happily open. When you’re a kid you can’t wait to grow up and get mail all the time, but once you finally become an adult you realize all those envelops are either junk mail or bills, hardly anything to look forward to — unless you’re waiting for your subscription box to come.

We’ve rounded up the best subscription boxes for moms that will make you want to race your kids to the mailbox.

Bump Boxes

#3/11:

Bump Boxes

Bump Boxes include five to eight full-sized products tailored specifically to your month of pregnancy or first year of motherhood. The boxes are designed to give you products that are healthy, highly useful and indulgent.

SheKnows checked out a pregnancy box, and it’s clear a lot of thought goes into what to include in each box. For example, the box included a bottle of Promise DHA softgels that were strawberry flavored, to make them easier to swallow when dealing with morning sickness.

Cost: $40/month or a smaller box for $10 per month

Who it’s perfect for: First-time moms looking for healthy and useful products and any pregnant woman or new mom who could use a little something each month to remind her that she matters just as much as the baby.

Pampered Mommy

Pampered Mommy

Pampered Mommy features an assortment of bath and beauty products, accessories and fun mommy essentials defiantly put together with the busy mom in mind.

SheKnows checked out a sample box, and every item was something we’ve coveted for ourselves or didn’t realize we needed. (A spray that makes your hair blow dry faster? Yes please!) Every item was full-sized and fabulous, and the value of the box definitely seemed to be more than the monthly subscription fee. These are the kinds of items you want to get for yourself, but have trouble finding the time to shop for.

Cost: $30/month (SheKnows readers can use promo code SHEKNOWS for $5 off your first purchase)

Who it’s perfect for: Any mom who wishes she had more time for herself, moms who love pampering but have zero time to go to the spa, the woman in your life who deserves to be told how much you appreciate her.

The Dearly Box

The Dearly Box

The Dearly Box gives you two to four items of hand-picked jewelry per month delivered to your door. You can specify a preference of gold, silver or a blend of metals when setting up your subscription, and can indicate a casual+classic, glam+chic or signature style preference.

SheKnows checked out a sample of the company's February glam+chic box, which included a statement necklace, silver knot earrings, a gold chain with heart charm and a small cloth jewelry bag.

Getting jewelry is always a treat, but the surprise of not knowing what’s coming is what makes the Dearly Box so fun. The price point is great for the quality and number of items you receive. If you’re a mom who wants to stay current with the latest fashion trends so you’re ready for your next girls' night out or date night, then the Dearly Box is a great way to treat yourself.

Cost: $29/month; single boxes available for purchase

Who it’s perfect for: Working moms who want to look great at the office but have little time to shop, moms who miss having the time to browse in accessory boutiques, friends and partners looking to give an awesome gift.

OliveBox

OliveBox

SheKnows checked out OliveBox's Celebrating You lifestyle box, which included two blank cards, an inspirational message pen and a self-reflection journaling project. The thoughtfully themed boxes from OliveBox means actually having a wedding card on hand when spring wedding invitations come rolling in.

Computers are great, but sending a hand-written card in this day and age really lets the recipient know you care, and having cards delivered right to you with OliveBox makes it a little bit easier to follow through on your good intentions and actually send the card.

Cost: Card box $25/box, sent bi-monthly; lifestyle box $25/month; single boxes also available for purchase

Who it’s perfect for: Moms who miss having time to wander around the card section of the bookstore, moms with a fondness for paper goods or keeping journals.

Ecocentric Mom

#7/11:

Ecocentric Mom

An Ecocentric Mom box contains five to nine sample- and full-sized all-natural beauty, home, cleaning and snack products. You can choose from a pregnancy box, baby box or mommy box.

SheKnows checked out a sample Ecocentric Mom box, and it was overflowing with products, although it did have more sample-sized products than some other boxes we tried out. However, when you consider the fact that all-natural products tend to be more expensive than their chemical-filled counterparts, Ecocentric Mom is offering a cheaper way to try something out before you buy.

Cost: $25/month; discounts available for a three-, six- or 12-month subscription

Who it’s perfect for: Any mom who’s interested in incorporating more natural cleaning and household products into her home but isn’t sure what brands and products are available.

Avery & Austin

#8/11:

Avery & Austin

Avery & Austin is a monthly themed crafting box geared towards kids ages 4 to 10. Each box contains complete crafting supplies and instructions for two kids, plus snacks.

SheKnows checked out the February Avery & Austin box, and when they say it comes with everything you need, they really do mean everything. The puffy paint window-cling project even came with Ziploc bags to etch your window cling onto. The included snacks make this box the only thing you’ll need for an afternoon of fun.

Cost: $24/month

Who it’s perfect for: Busy moms who want to do more crafts with their kids but don’t have the time to pick a project and go to the craft store, grandparents and aunties who babysit occasionally and would love to have a fun project on hand when they do.

#9/11:

21 Bundles

#9/11:

21 Bundles

21 Bundles is a monthly subscription box delivered to you for each month of pregnancy and through Baby's first year (21 months in total). Each box contains five to eight full-sized products that are all-natural, toxin-free and specifically tailored to your stage of pregnancy or motherhood.

SheKnows checked out a sample month-four pregnancy box and noted a number of full-sized products were enclosed, enabling you to really get a feel for a product to see if you would want to use it on a regular basis. Each item was well thought out, from all-natural body butter for your growing bump to soothing all-natural heartburn tea.

Cost: $40/month

Who it’s perfect for: First-time moms who are interested in using natural body products during pregnancy and on their newborn, but aren’t sure what brands and products are out there.

Scrumpt Box

Scrumpt Box

Scrumpt Box is a weekly delivery service that comes with instructions and portioned ingredients to make healthy and fun lunches for your little ones. You can specify any food preferences or any allergies your child has in advance, and each box comes with plasticware, napkins and a shopping list for any refrigerated staples you need to assemble the lunches.

SheKnows checked out a sample three-meal box and was pleased to see colorful, kid-friendly handouts about eating healthy included. A sticker chart for eating fruits and veggies was a brilliant touch. The additions of items like small plastic containers for dipping sauces makes Scrumpt Box an easy way for busy moms to craft lunches that only look like they took a long time to assemble.

Cost: Three meals per week for $19/week or five meals per week for $24/week; a three-meal sample or gift pack is also available for purchase

Who it’s perfect for: Moms looking to expand the palates of picky eaters or any mom who loves the look of Pinterest-inspired kid lunches but is short on time or creativity.
