So, let these nine foodie subscription services make your life – and your mom’s – a little easier this Mother’s Day and beyond (and serve as a monthly reminder of why you’re her “favourite” child).
Let the sweet-loving mom have her cake and eat it too each month with the Cake of the Month Club from Le Dolci.

The cakes serve 6-8 people and are delivered through the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) the second week of each month, Tuesday to Friday.
The wine-sipping mom with an accompanying thirst for knowledge will appreciate a membership to the expertly curated Wine Collective. The Calgary-based wine retailer provides discerning customers across the country wines from different regions, as well as educational background about their producers, an interactive tasting guide, and food pairing information.
Brighten your mom’s morning with a subscription to Oatbox.
