For Your Mom

For your own mom, you’ll want to write something that lets her know how much you appreciate everything she does and has done for you. It doesn’t always have to be sappy and sentimental; if she’s got a great sense of humor, write something witty or clever. Here are some examples of what you could write:

  • “You’ve loved me and supported me for all these years. I couldn’t ask for a better mother. Love you always!”

  • “Thank you for being my angel, mom. You’ve kept me safe, loved me, and supported me all this time. You deserve nothing but the best. Happy Mother’s Day!”

  • “You’ve given me so much over the years. I can’t truly express how grateful I am for everything you’ve done. I love you and I hope you have a fantastic Mother’s Day!”

  • “Happy Mother’s Day! Thanks for putting up with me for so long. I can only hope I inherit all your patience.”

  • “You’re the perfect example of what a mom should be: kind, caring, loving, supportive. I’m proud to call you my mother.”

If your relationship with your mom is a bit complicated and such heartfelt messages feel strained to you, there are still ways to make your card sound meaningful.

Tell her you hope she has a beautiful day or that you’ve been thinking of her. You’re being honest and positive, which are meaningful ways to write.

For Family Members

Writing a heartfelt message for any grandmas, aunts, or other family members who have had a maternal presence in your life is simple. Focus on the ways they’ve influenced or touched your life and write from there.

  • “You’ll never know how much I admire the woman you are, or how grateful I am that you’re in my life.”

  • “I’m so blessed that you’ve been a part of my life. I love you and I hope you have a wonderful day!”

  • “All my love to an amazing lady, from someone who hopes they can be half as amazing some day!”

  • “You’ve been a mom to me in so many ways, I hope you know how much I appreciate everything you’ve done!”

For Your Partner or Wife

Parenting isn’t an easy job, and that’s why it’s important to let your wife or partner know just how much you appreciate all the work they do.

Acknowledge their contributions, their love, and their dedication while at the same time making it clear just how you feel.

  • “You’ve done so much to make our family perfect. I hope you never forget that you’re perfect, too. I love you.”

  • “Our home would be nothing without you. You’re the most amazing mother our kids could have. Happy Mother’s Day!

  • “Thank you for being such a fantastic mother! The kids and I love you more than you’ll ever know.”

  • “I love you, and I love the mother you’ve become. I’ll always be here for you. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day.”

For Friends or Siblings

It’s important to let the other moms in your life know just how important they are, too. If your sister or friend is a mother, add some additional cheer to their Mother’s Day by letting them know how much you admire them.

  • “You’ve been such an amazing friend to me and now you’re an amazing mother! Wishing you all the best this Mother’s Day!”

  • “We’ve shared so much together, including motherhood. Looking forward to more adventures with you!”

  • “Your kids have the best mom on the planet! I hope they spoil you rotten for Mother’s Day!”

  • “We grew up to be best friends and I hope our kids do, too. Here’s to you being a fantastic mom!”

The Right Words

While mothers deserve to be appreciated every day, Mother’s Day is the time to make sure they really know how truly important they are. Heartfelt messages in cards make Mother’s Day more meaningful, so don’t hold back on letting the women closest to you know just how much you care!
