Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we know that it’s much more meaningful to write something extra special in their card, other than ‘To Mum’ and your name. (You can do better than that).

Whether your mum is the super sentimental type (who cries at even the thought of you giving her a card) or the slightly wacky mum who loves a good ol’ joke on the front of her card – we’ve got something for everyone and a message that’s just right..

We’ve created a list of the perfect Mother’s Day card messages so if you know what you want to say, but just can’t put it into words, this should get you inspired.

Simple but meaningful Mother’s Day messages:

Sometimes the shortest messages mean the most (and have the greatest impact)

  • Thank you for being you.
  • Happy Mother’s Day to the best mum of all.
  • Thanks for putting up with us. We love you like crazy.
  • Sending you all my love today – Happy Mother’s Day!
  • It’s your turn to be spoiled today!
  • Behind every great kid is an amazing mum!
  • Mum – thanks so much for everything you do! You’re the best.
  • Thanks for being the best mum in the world!

Funny Mother’s Day messages:

Adding a funny joke into your Mother’s Day card is always a good idea (show them you’re the funniest of the siblings)

  • Flowers? Chocolates? Prosecco? They aren’t the best gift for you really… Luckily, you’ve got me.
  • Happy centre of attention day! Don’t get too used to it…
  • Congratulations Mum – I turned out awesome. Enjoy your day basking in the glory of my greatness.
  • I know giving birth to me was tough, but nobody said making a masterpiece was easy.
  • I love you mum but please stop commenting on all my social media posts. Thanks..
  • You might have failed miserably with my sister/brother, but at least you nailed it with me!
  • Mum, you deserve a luxury 5 star spa retreat! But if all else fails, just lock yourself in the bathroom with a glass of wine…

New Mum Mother’s Day messages:

So it’s your first Mother’s Day as a new mum? That deserves something special – stick your feet up and relax for today (you can start getting used to this).

  • Thank you for bringing this little bundle of joy into the world. You are an amazing Mum. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day.
  • I’m so proud how you coped with bringing our baby into the world, you are so strong and already an amazing Mum. Happy first Mother’s Day.
  • To my Mummy. Happy first Mother’s Day! I love you so very much.

Step-mum Mother’s Day messages:

Although they may have joined the family a little later, step-mums can be just as much of an inspiration and role model. These are a few simple, but thoughtful, messages for your step-mum this Mother’s Day.

  • I am so happy you joined our family. You are the best Stepmother in the world. Happy Mother’s Day!
  • Thank you for doing such a great job raising me (it was a challenge, I know). Have an amazing day!
  • You are my best friend and you’ll always be. Thank you for guiding me through life and helping me become a better person.

For far-away-mums Mother’s Day messages:

Being away from your mum can sometimes be super difficult – no one to gossip with or do your laundry… Luckily with the power of some letterbox love, we can show that appreciation through a personalised Mother’s Day card.

  • Mum, thanks for keeping it together and keeping us all going in these strange times. We love you! Happy Mother’s Day.
  • Mum, when I next see you I’m going to give you the BIGGEST hug. Happy Mother’s Day!
  • Mum, I know you’re on the other side of the world but I just wanted to let you know that I’m thinking of you today! Thanks for being the best mum ever. Happy Mother’s Day!

For someone who’s like a mother Mother’s Day messages:

Your grandma, an older sister or someone just close to you – sometimes we don’t even realize that they’re like mums to us and how much they impact our lives. Take the time to show them your appreciation.

  • You are very special and I am so glad you are a part of my life.
  • You have been the mother that I needed and I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for me. Happy Mother’s Day!
  • You mean more to me than I can say! Love you to bits and wish you a happy Mother’s Day!
