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.
