The Perfect Cards for Mother’s Day

by Intern Kelsie

My feelings for my mother fall somewhere between “Thanks for everything you’ve done, I’m pretty sure I’d be dead without you,” to “YOU’RE THE BEST, MOM FOR PRESIDENT! MOM FOR QUEEN! MOM FOR RULER OF THE UNIVERSE!” 

While neither of those sentiments are as well-articulated as I’d like, I’m sure that she’d love to hear them both. And luckily, Mother’s Day is coming up, so I’ll have the chance to say them to her.

The big day falls on May 13th this year, which luckily means that you still have enough time to find the perfect way to express your gratitude.

If you’re struggling with the best (and cutest!) way to say thanks, check out these excellent card options from some of our favorite stationery companies.

Don’t forget to get it in the mail soon! Remember, this is, after all, the woman who changed your diapers.

For a sophisticated option, turn to Portland-based QuillandFox. With warm colors and homey designs, these cards are a surefire hit.
