5 Cards to Send to (Whoever You Consider to be) Mom

Some for literal moms, some for those in your life who you think of as mom

Mother’s Day is so many things: a celebration of motherhood, an appreciation of what that means physically and emotionally, an arms-open acknowledgement of those mothers who may not be moms in the traditional sense but who encompass the most important attributes (like a superhuman ability to love — aww!). It’s an opportunity for moms to make mom jokes like, “Excuse me, every day is Mother’s Day!” and for us to agree in admiration. Macaroni noodles get a lot of playtime on Mother’s Day, as do flowers, massage gift certificates and of course, cards. The card can be the hardest part. They’re either too cheesy, not applicable to your situation or leak glitter or sing. So, we made a few MR-tinged greetings to better suit your style. You and your mom (whatever mom means to you) are a special pair, after all.

Now pick out your card to print or email before the piece of dust in my eye starts to make me cry.

    Still wishing there was a way to print GIFs because my mom will absolutely not accept a non-physical Mother’s Day card…

    • Emily Zirimis

      You should still be able to print! Will be just like printing a jpg 🙂

      • Catherine

        Of course! I just meant I wish there was a way to print pictures like the ones in Harry Potter where the people actually move 😉

        • Emily Zirimis

          Got it!! Ah that would be the dream

        • Amelia Diamond

          omg when is someone going to make that a thing, for real

          • Catherine

            I’ve been waiting my entire adult life and most of my childhood for that; I’d say it’s not likely (fingers crossed I’m wrong)
