What to write in a Mother's Day card

Mother's Day is coming soon, and there's no better time than now to get started on writing your Mother's Day card. Are you stuck on what to write in a Mother's Day card? Here are some ideas and suggestions on how to write a Mother's Day card that is meaningful, honest and with gratitude for your relationship.

Say Thank You

Mother's Day cards are a wonderful opportunity to express gratitude for any reason you're grateful for your mom. Consider sharing a moment from the past when your mom helped you out, comforted you or gave you some tough love advice that, in hindsight, you've realized was exactly what you needed to hear. Expressing gratitude with a specific story is a way to take advantage of writing, especially if you haven't told your mom thank you for that past event verbally.

A perfect card for expressing gratitude on Mother's Day is Yardia's Thanks, Mom otters card. It features two otters holding hands in a soft watercolor illustration, paired with the sweet brush lettered message.

Share Something You've Learned

On Mother's Day, share a story with your mom about something that you learned from her that you appreciate. Noticing what she's taught you is sure to make her smile when she reads your story. Whether your mom taught you how to cook a traditional family dish, showed you what self-care and balance can create, led by example on how to run a successful business or simply instilled in you an appreciation for a style of music or pop culture, now's the perfect time to tell your mom how much you've learned from her.

Yardia's mama bear Mother's Day card is a winner for this type of message. Featuring an illustration of a mama bear teaching her cubs to fish for salmon, it's paired with the message, "I've learned so much from you, Mom."

Share a Funny Family Memory

Whether your childhood memory of your mom is sweet or salty, share a story that will make both of you laugh. Sharing a quick family joke or your favorite memory of your mom being a badass will remind her of the great job she did in raising you. Remind your mom of why you're her favorite!

A sweetly punny card to make your mom giggle or groan is Yardia's Mmama Llama card. With two watercolor llamas gracing the cover, a simple lettered message reads, "to my mmama."
