Mother’s Day Greetings to Mom
No matter what I’m doing, it’s always better with you, Mom.
I’m proud you are my Mother.
You were always there, Mom, whenever I needed you.

Mom, it takes finally growing up to realize just how much you did for me.
It took you a lot of patience to raise me. I appreciate it.
You don’t have to tell me I’m your favorite; I already knew.
I give you this card with all my love. Thanks, Mom.
Thanks for everything, Mom; you’re just the best.

To my fabulous sister, I’m so glad we can be Moms together, especially on this day.

Growing old with you, my twin, will be just as much fun as growing up with you.

Tips for Writing Mother’s Day Messages
Keep it simple and heartfelt.
Less is more; try to be brief and to the point.
A good compliment goes a long way.
Be warm and sincere.
Base your sentiment on the kind of relationship you have with your Mom.
You can’t miss by saying I love you.
Don’t forget to tell her she’s beautiful inside and out.
Share your feelings with every woman that is important to you.
Encourage her about her achievements.
Tell her how proud you are of her.
How to Make Mother’s Day Special
Breakfast in bed never hurts.
Surprise Mom with a special dinner you made yourself (or with help from the kids).
Make finding her card a treasure hunt with clues.
Drive Mom to her favorite restaurant, but blindfolded (uh, Mom’s blindfolded).
Make sure you have plenty of Mom’s favorite beverage.
Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day
Giving flowers is a nice touch, but do a little homework first and find out which ones are her favorite. Oh, and including flower pots with flowers is always well received.
Chocolate is always appreciated but sometimes not appropriate, especially in the middle of a diet.
If you are giving multiple gifts, stagger giving them throughout her special day. Handmade mother gifts work well for that mom who seems to already have everything.
Let the person you’re honoring read their card first, then give them your gift.
Saying, “I thought you might enjoy this,” sets the stage for your gift-giving.
Tips for kids on Mother’s Day
Making Mom homemade cards is always a hit.
In addition, you can’t beat homemade gifts.
Have the kids draw Mom some pictures of your family.
Let the kids make breakfast or lunch. Dinner might be too much.
Whatever you do, make sure you include the dog or cat too!
