Give a Boston-Based Food or Drink Subscription for Mother’s Day

Check out these local options for cheese boxes, wine subscriptions, macarons by the dozen, caviar, and more

Mother’s Day is approaching quickly, and Father’s Day isn’t far behind. Drawing a blank on gift ideas this year? Consider giving the gift of a local food or drink subscription. Although the first physical shipment won’t necessarily show up right on the holiday, you can give the recipient a hint of what’s to come, whether it’s an assortment of cheeses, some exciting bottles of wine, or fresh oysters.

Here’s a look at some of the food and drink subscriptions offered by Boston-area restaurants and businesses. Note that while shipping or delivery is available for some, others must be picked up onsite.

This guide was originally published on December 22, 2020; it is updated periodically, and the date of the most recent update appears above.

The meat case at M.F. Dulock | Chris Coe/Eater

M.F. Dulock’s Meat Club (monthly; Somerville pickup required)

  • $60

Prices taken at time of publishing.

There’s a caveat to this one: Somerville butcher M.F. Dulock doesn’t consider a new membership to its Meat Club program a good gift for an unsuspecting recipient as it requires a bit of a commitment on the recipient’s part to make the pickups; instead, the shop recommends gift cards, available in any denomination, which can be put toward Meat Club membership or anything at the shop.

However, if your friend already belongs to the Meat Club, you can treat them to a number of shares ($60 per month). Or, if you’re a meat lover who can make it to Somerville on a designated day once per month, you can give yourself the gift of meat. Each monthly share includes five pounds of meat, usually three to five different ingredients, possibly including one large roasting or braising cut, steak or chops, sausage or other ground meat, and something “uncommon.” Four times a year, one pound of the meat is replaced with three pounds of soup bones.

Memberships are typically set up in-store, but customers are not currently allowed inside due to COVID restrictions, so call (617) 666‑1970 to provide your information or ask any questions. (To purchase a gift card instead, simply click on the red button below.)
