How to Gift Your Mom a Sips by Box

How to Gift Your Mom a Sips by Box

We all want to treat our moms, grandmas, and other loved ones to the gift of a comforting mug of tea, especially right now. A Sips by Box gift card is a great way to ensure our moms have an endless supply of delicious tea. But not everyone has the same level of comfort with technology. We want to help you make sure that your loved one has the best possible experience with Sips by, so we’ve put together this guide to help.

Sips by is a personalized tea discovery subscription. Each month, we match tea drinkers across the U.S. with delicious teas from over 150 global tea brands that we’re sure they’ll love. Subscribers receive four teas chosen just for them in every box. Learn more here.

Still looking for the perfect Mother's Day gift? Why not treat your mom to a Sips by digital gift card to start her own personalized tea journey. Gift cards download within minutes, including an at-home printable card, and make great last-minute gifts.


This mom is so tech savvy, she’s practically a white hat hacker. She runs a blog about her favorite recipes and follows more people on Instagram than you do. No need to worry - she’ll be fine to understand the Sips by interface and take the quiz. If she’s new to tea, you might want to have a chat about the types of tea you think she’ll enjoy before unleashing her on the quiz.


This mom loves texting (even if her emoji choices are questionable) but isn’t always online. This one is a judgment call - what do you think would make your mom happier - taking the quiz herself, or hopping on a call with you to chat as she takes the quiz? It doesn’t hurt to take the opportunity for some extra quality time.


This mom still handwritten all of her recipe cards and loves nothing more than a long chat on the phone (landline, of course). If you know your mom would prefer to have as little to do with technology as possible, here’s how you can help her out and make sure she still gets delicious personalized tea. Schedule a call with her where you can redeem her gift card, set up her account, and take the quiz for her. Bonus - you’ll learn more about what kinds of tea make her heart beat faster (for your next gifting occasion). You can even schedule a monthly call to discuss the teas in her Sips by Box, so you can rate the teas on her profile.

We hope this helps! Our goal is always to make you and your mom happy, one mug at a time. Let’s all sip together.
