13 Mother's Day Cards to Show How Much You Care

I don't know about you but I think all Mother's Day cards should be funny. Because if you can't laugh at how hard, amazing, heart-wrenching, and heart-warming motherhood is all at the same time, then how can you possibly be "The Best Mom Ever" anyway? At least that what it says on the card.

But not every mom is into funny Mother's Day cards. Some think the perfect card should have a watercolor painting on the front and messages of "I love you" and "thinking of you" and "for a special woman on a special day" on the inside.

Modern technology has given us ecards for those who never make it to the post office on time. And there's plenty of options to personalize your card ideas. Websites like Shutterfly will slap your face on a photo card with a frilly "love you mom" font. Or even better, put your face and message on a pillow to add to your mother-in-law's home decor. That way the card and mother's day gift is a 2 for 1 deal!

Some Mother's Day cards include magnets and stickers as a bonus gift. Some are intricate cut-outs that pop up and double as a centerpiece. The DIY type mom may even frame an especially pretty card. But one thing is for sure. All moms love Mother's Day cards. And brunch. They love brunch too. A lot.


Here Are Some Card Ideas All Available From Amazon

1. One Tough Mutha

The front message proclaims you are One Tough Mutha. And on the inside you are validated with "I get all my bad-assery from you, Mom. Happy Mother's Day". This card is especially cool because of the message magnet that comes with it.

2. Oritouchpop Happy Mother's Day Pop Up Card, 3D Paper Flower Bouquet

4. For The Very Traditional Happy Mother's Day Card

This old school card features a painted butterfly and flowers with gold glitter. It's a safe bet. Inside reads: "Hope it's filled with all the things that make you smile, that touch your heart, that you most enjoy . . . Because that's what a wonderful mom like you deserves. Happy Mother's Day."
