What to Write in a Mother’s Day Card: Examples Messages

I think we can all agree that mothers are amazing. What they do for us – sons, daughters, husbands and grandchildren – is just incredible.

They put in so much time and effort to help and support us, enriching our lives for the better. So when Mother’s Day comes around and they get one day dedicated to them it’s not much to ask that we give them a card, is it?

No! Of course not. Ah, but what should we say? Something many have struggled with is what to write in a Mother’s Day card.

If you’re in the same position then read on as we have a brilliant selection of Mother’s Day card message examples for all different types of moms – grandmothers, stepmothers, mother-in-laws etc. We’re sure you’ll find what you’re looking for.

For a Wife or Partner

Mother’s Day cards don’t have to just come from the children. If you’re the partner or husband of a mom then you may well want to give a card and gift as well. As for the message, remind her how much you appreciate all she does and how important she is to you/the whole family.

  • Seeing you blossom into the incredible mother you are has been an inspiration. I truly love you
  • Our family is absolutely perfect and so much of that is due to you – an amazing mom
  • I’m so grateful to have you as my wife and mother to our kids as we make our lives together
  • Happy Mother’s Day my love
  • You’re more beautiful than ever to me
  • I’m blessed to have you in my life and as we continue on this journey. Happy Mother’s Day
  • Your strength and support is a wonder to me everyday. How you go above and beyond for our family is remarkable. I hope you have a special day
  • Thank you for putting up with such a useless husband! I’m not sure how the family would cope without you. Happy Mother’s Day!
  • I love you more than I can say.

For a Daughter or Granddaughter

You may have a daughter or even granddaughter that has become a mom. That in itself can be extremely emotional, so celebrating her being a mom on Mother’s Day requires the perfect card and message. Remember, she’s the reason you have those lovely grandchildren!

  • Happy Mother’s Day to our wonderful daughter. Have a lovely day
  • Now you’re a mom I wonder if you know how much I love you and how joy you’ve bought us.
  • I know I should be wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day but instead all I want to do is thank you for the beautiful grandchildren!
  • You’re doing a fantastic job as mom. Keep up the good work.
  • I can’t quite believe my little granddaughter is a mom now. You’ve grown up so fast.
  • Thinking of you and my lovely grandchild on this Mother’s Day
  • I’m really proud of how well you’re doing as a mom.
  • Happy Mother’s Day to a granddaughter who just keeps on bringing joy to her family
  • Motherhood isn’t easy and yet you’re a fine example to everyone. Enjoy your Mother’s Day

For a Sister

Your sister may well be a mother as well so is deserving of a Mother’s Day card. You might even find you’re both becoming mothers at the same time.

  • You’re an awesome mom sis, keep it up!
  • Me and the whole family are so proud of you. Happy Mother’s Day
  • Happy Mother’s Day big sister
  • I still can’t believe my little sister is a mom! I hope you have a great day
