Mother’s Day card ideas
Your mom is so much more than just the person who gave you life. (For starters, she carried you in her body for nine months, followed by years of poop and barf, only for you to pick the bus driver as your “ultimate hero” in kindergarten.) Make up for that childhood faux pas and tell her how much she means to you with sweet or funny Mother’s Day cards inscribed with thoughtful Mother’s Day wishes, Mother’s Day poems, or mom quotes.
From your little human bean
Have a killer Mother’s Day
Moms with a dark sense of humor will get a kick out of this card—Jason Voorhees probably had a mom… right? After she reads it, check out some of the Mom movies to watch on Mother’s Day. (Nope, Friday the 13th isn’t included.)
There’s no place like Grandma’s house
Home may be where the heart is, but Grandma’s house is where all the best sweets are. Be sure to honor the woman who raised the woman who raised you with this beautifully illustrated card. Gift it along with these Mother’s Day gifts for grandma.
Thanks for not leaving me on the firehouse steps
When you think of all the times your mom could have given up on you, it makes you really appreciate everything she went through for you—and this card reminds her in the funniest of ways. Make it the perfect present by adding one of these Amazon Mother’s Day gifts.

I’m so glad you are my mom
Mamas are mamas, regardless of race, creed, or even species. This tender moment with a mama giraffe will remind your mother just how much you look up to her. The card is even sweeter when tied to Mother’s Day gift baskets.
At least you have me
Mom may not ever say it out loud, but you know you’re her favorite. Let her know you’re in on the secret with this funny card. After all, a little sibling rivalry never hurt anyone.

Make sure your mother-in-law gets a card from your husband (and be sure she knows who picked it out) with this tongue-in-cheek card. You might just shoulder him out as her favorite.
