Despite what all the asshole dads out there might think, we moms deserve the world, dammit. Or, at least we deserve to go to the bathroom in peace. But since the likelihood of that happening is slim to none, then at the very least don’t we deserve a box of thoughtfully curated surprises that magically appears in your mailbox once a month? Yes. We do.
But because nobody, especially not a mom, has the time or energy to sift through the ridiculous amount of subscription boxes out there these days, we’ve done all the legwork for you and found the best subscription boxes that appeal to all kinds of moms — whether you’re newly pregnant or your kid is about to graduate.
Aside from the always exciting cool-shit-in-your-mailbox aspect, these subscriptions don’t just benefit you. They support local businesses, charities, non-profit partners, help you become more eco-friendly, grow more plants, and besides all that goodness, support your mental health and wellbeing as a mom. Whew! Now if only there were a therapist subscription box, you’d be all set.
Whether you rip this month’s surprise open at the mailbox or you settle into bed with a glass of wine after the kids are asleep to savor the unboxing, this roundup is for you. These monthly boxes will make your life a little bit more luxurious and help you be the best mom you can be. Plus, I’m sure your mail carrier will appreciate your sudden interest in their delivery schedule, because isn’t getting something in the mail besides junk mail and bills kind of like…Christmas? But every month? We thought you’d agree.
