Happy Mother's Day: What To Write In A Mother's Day Card

Finding the perfect way to sare your love and appreciation on March 11th doesn't need to be difficult.

Make March 11th the day she deserves. 

Mother's Day provides the perfect opportunity to say thanks to your Mum for every amazing thing she does for you, as well as saying sorry for all those years you were a bit of a nightmare! It's a day that is totally about her, which she definitely deserves, so you want to make sure she feels as special as possible. 

It's also a fab chance to honour other amazing ladies in your life, whether you're related to them - like your Grandma, Step Mum or Nan - or they are just super special and you think they deserve to be spoilt. 

While a gorgeous gift is always going to go down a treat, there's something really special and personal about a card, especially one that contains a message you've written yourself. This is why we have created a brilliant and exclusive range of personalised Mother's Day cards for every woman you love. 

Not only do our cards have designs that you can personalise - from adding a name, changing the relation (like switching Gran for Nona) or writing a message to uploading a photo - they also allow you to add a special and heartfelt message to the inside. This means you get to say thanks and tell her you love her in your own way.

We've made this easy for you with our verse finder, which has some sweet messages at the ready that you can choose from and even edit to make sure you say just the right thing on Mothering Sunday. However, we know that sometimes you need to think of exactly the right words yourself. 

To help you out, here's a bit of inspiration to help you send a card to your mum or any other awesome person this Mother's Day:



You know what type of message your Mum will like to receive, so tailor what you say to her. It can be funny, sweet, sentimental or any type of message you want. If it comes from you, she'll appreciate it. 

"Out of all the mums in the world, I'm so glad you're mine."
"Happy Mother's Day, Mum, I'm sorry for all the times I didn't tidy my room."
"Thank you for always being there for me."
"Sending you all my love on a day that is all about you."
"You deserve the best Mothering Sunday ever because you're the best Mum."
"You're my best friend, the one I tell everything to and the person I most want to be like."



No one loves you quite like your Nan, so make sure her Mother's Day is magical with a message that really comes from the heart and that says it all. 

"Only the best mums get promoted to Grandma."
"Thank you for being the person I can turn to when I've annoyed Mum."
"Happy Mothering Sunday, Nanna. I hope today is as wonderful as you are."
"To the star baker, best tea-maker and most amazing Granny there is."
"Today is about celebrating incredible women and you are right at the top of the list."
"Sending you all the love in the world. Happy Mother's Day Nan."



It takes a really special person to be a Step Mum, so make sure yours feels really special on Mother's Day by writing a meaningful message.

"Thank you for being a friend, a shoulder to cry on and the best Step Mum I could ask for."
"To an absolutely fabulous Step Mum, have the amazing day that you deserve."
"Happy Mother's Day. I'm so lucky that you're part of our family."
"I feel like we were meant to be a family."
"You've helped me become the person I am today, which I know wasn't easy!"
"Thanks for putting up with me even though you didn't give birth to me."



Not every person you want to celebrate on Mother's Day is family, but they are all special. Share some love with someone whose deserves to be recognised. 

"It shouldn't come as any surprise that I'm thinking of you today."
"You've had an amazing impact on my life and I am so grateful to have met you."
"Happy Mother's Day to someone who has become like a mum to me in so many ways."
"Today is about strong, kind and incredible women, which is why you deserve this card."
"I appreciate you and everything you do so much."
"You are loved, cherished and appreciated. Thank you for being you."



Help make her first Mother's Day special and memorable by shaping a message that is meaningful and will let her know just what an incredible Mummy she is. 

"You might be new to being a Mum, but you're already amazing at it."
"I can't hold a crayon yet so a shop-bought card will have to do."
"Congratulations for already being the best Mum in the world."
"I'm already looking forward to celebrating how awesome you are every Mother's Day."
"Thank you for looking after me even after I gave your morning sickness."
"I hope this day will be the first of many special ones now that you're my Mummy."
