While you love your mother, you may not know how to translate your appreciation into words. We’re here to help with some ideas for what to write in your Mother’s Day card.

Firstly, you have to make sure you’ve picked the perfect Mother’s Day card to make her feel special. Once you’ve got one, grab a pen and let these ideas inspire what you write.

If you’re not a wordy person, you can keep it short and sweet. But don’t just write, “To Mum, Happy Mother’s Day, From [your name].” Instead, make it more special.

Here are some ideas of what you can write: 

1. “To the best mother in the world, Thank you so much for all you’ve done for me. I couldn’t ask for a better parent. I love you so much.”

2. “You’ve shaped me into the person I am today. I appreciate everything you’ve done for me and I am excited to give you the best Mother’s Day. You deserve it.”

3. “Happy Mother’s Day! I’m sorry I don’t say this more… but I love you, I appreciate you and I thank you for all you do for me.”

4. “If I’m half the parent you are, I will count my child as extremely lucky. You are simply wonderful and I love you so much. Happy Mother’s Day!”

5. “You deserve the best Mother’s Day because you are truly the best mother. I hope you enjoy this day and know how much I love you.”

6. “You do so much and never ask for anything in return. Thank you for everything, Mum.”

7. “You gave me life… so the least I can do is give you the perfect day. I hope you’re ready for some spoiling and pampering.”

8. “To my best friend, You’re my rock. I couldn’t imagine where I’d be without you. You deserve the world, Mum.”

9. “I’m sorry I can be difficult sometimes. I appreciate all you do and hope I can show you how much today. I love you more than you know.”

10. “I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better person to call my mother. Today is all about you… and I can’t wait to spoil you (just as you have spoiled me all my life).”

Hopefully one of these 10 messages will perfectly describe what you want to tell your mother. Put the finished card onto a tray along with the breakfast you make for her to serve in bed.

Alternatively, if you won’t be around in the morning, tuck it in with a bunch of flowers for her to take when you see her later on.
