Subscription services have taken the UK by storm with offerings from monthly shaving kits to baby nappies and stockings to sex toys. Here are a few that are great for Mother's Day gifts including, of course, the gift of craft gin!
Not to toot our own horn, but we have a fabulous Gin of the Month offering for the gin-loving mum. All mums love a little G&T and although the variety of artisan tonics to try is beginning to proliferate, the number of different craft gins is huge and ever-growing! We’ll send mom one bottle of the finest small-batch gin on a monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly basis. What’s more, with a Craft Gin Club Membership, mum will receive the monthly edition of GINNED! Magazine with a month’s worth of cocktail recipes and entertaining feature articles.
We even send our members gin that you can’t find in the UK such as March’s Gn of the Month, Blackwater Nº 5 from Ireland’s first craft distillery, Blackwater Distillery.
One of the original subscription boxes launched Stateside back in 2010, Birchbox acquired Joliebox to enter the UK. Every month, the service sends a box full of beauty samples and publishes tips on how to use them on its website. A good gift for your wife who wants to feel ravishing even while cleaning up after the kids. Plans start at £10 per month plus £2.95 shipping.
If you’re daughter or wife is an expecting mum in her second trimester or a new mom with a child of up to two years old, Sassybloom is for her. Every month the service sends a box packed with goodies tailored to the stage of child development from plush toy dolls to bibs and cleaning wipes. Plans start at £23 for an annual monthly subscription.
Where as Sassybloom caters to the recently new mum, the Rainy Day Box Co. sends entertainment for children 3 years and up. With arts and crafts, stickers, puzzles and all the things kids need to stay educated and engaged throughout a day when they can’t run around outside, this subscription service starting at £5.99 is a steal.
For the mum that likes to taste new delights and cook great food for her family, the Food Discovery Box, starting at £23.50 per month, allows its subscribers to pick 5 items per month to put in their box adding a 6th mystery product to keep subscribers guessing.
Who can resist chocolate, especially a mum running after her kids all day in need of energy. A little indulgence never hurt, and the Hotel Chocolate Tasting Club indulgence comes from its own cocoa plantation in Saint Lucia so you know it’s coming straight from the source. Yummy! Monthly subscriptions start at £22.95.
If the mums in your life own dogs and need to entertain and feed them with different items, then Pooch Pack is certainly what they need. Keeping your dog entertained starts at £16.95 per month.
