With Mothers Day next Sunday and most of us still in lockdown it’s a difficult time to think of something that your special Mum could enjoy at home. Well, if she loves baking then one of the following subscription boxes will be perfect for her. I have also included a family subscription in case Mum would prefer to bake with her little ones.

1.Bake Box BakeBox is a range of postal baking kits aimed at everyone that loves baking. They offer BakeBox ideally aimed at the more experienced baker. Little BakeBox is purely for the little ones that may need some assistance and Celebration BakeBox is a range of cakes designed specifically with special occasions in mind.

They offer several subscription options from rolling monthly to pre-purchased bundles, starting from one month rolling for £19.99 or 3 month bundle for £59.97 and you can cancel at any time.

3.Bake a Day of It Box – Every box has two new recipes a month as well as a few items such as biscuit cutters, decorating equipment or special ingredients. The items will always be related to the recipes and each month’s box has a theme ! If you subscribe before the 1st of the month, you will receive your box through the post the following month.
