2020 Note: While none of these services are offering brunch boxes this year, that doesn’t mean you’re out of options—for a socially distant breakfast in bed, check out these Mother’s Day gift baskets for breakfast and brunch.
While spa days and lavish gifts for Mother’s Day are great, showing love and appreciation through food is a personal touch. And what better way than to make a meal for the woman who has made thousands of meals for you on mom’s special day? While you might be debating about a menu or unsure about attempting to pull off something fabulous, meal kits can make creating a cohesive, delicious dish for your mom so much easier. So, from brunch to dinner, here are what several meal kit companies are offering in order to enable you to get to your mom’s heart (through her stomach).
Hello Fresh is offering the first-ever Mother’s Day Box in two versions—a dinner option and a brunch box.
Make mom a fabulous breakfast in bed, even if you aren’t too sure about how to pull a meal together on your own. Available in a 4-person or 8-person size, this Mother’s Day brunch box comes with ingredients to make spring asparagus strata with bacon, tomato, and gruyere; tropical citrus salad; cinnamon rolls; and a ‘Mom-mosa’ cocktail. Plus, you’ll receive a recipe book with cooking timelines and meal prep tips, as well as a Mother’s Day card in case you forgot to grab one for mom. It’s available starting at $72.
The Mother’s Day Dinner Box is available in a 2-person or 4-person size. This box features ingredients to make an appetizer of rosemary crostini with brie and jam; beef tenderloin over truffled mashed potatoes; and chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Plus, you’ll receive the same helpful print-outs as with the brunch box. Interactive games are also included in the booklet so the whole family can have fun with mom. It’s available starting at $64.
While you may want to order these on time for Mother’s Day (by May 5!), the options are available all month long, and can be purchased with no HelloFresh subscription required.

For Mother’s Day, the staff and recipe developers at Sun Basket are taking cues from their own moms. There are several recipes available on the weekly menu throughout the month and each special menu item is named after mothers of those on the Sun Basket team. Some of the diverse offerings include:
- Ann’s Low Country Shrimp and Grits
- Jan’s Chicken and Apple Salad with Walnuts and Avocado
- Wendy’s Chicken Paillard with Spiced Summer Squash and Tomato Salsa
- Tina’s Curried Pork with Roasted Kohlrabi and Apple-Ginger Compote
- Helen’s Chard Rolls with Ground Beef and Rice

- Judy’s Smoky White bean burgers with Lemon Green Beans
- Fresh Whole Wheat Penne with Edie’s Caponata Sauce
While Purple Carrot isn’t offering any Mother’s Day-specific meal kits, for the burgeoning home cook who wants to be able to share the love of plant-based food with mom, they are offering $30 off for first time users. The code to redeem the discount is pcspring30.
While many other meal kit companies may not be putting together specific packages for Mother’s Day, Blue Apron, Green Chef, Euphebe, and other meal kit delivery services can all be given as a gift to a mother who loves to spend time in her home kitchen—or who wants to spend less time shopping and meal-planning. Many of them can be purchased directly on-site and scheduled at your mom’s convenience, or gift certificates can be bought and redeemed later.
