20 Heart-Warming and Funny Messages to Write in Mother’s Day Cards

Choosing a Mother’s Day card is the easy part, especially when you can sit at home, browse and purchase using your phone or laptop. Coming up with a heartfelt (or funny!) message isn’t always so easy.

You don’t want to go with a simple “To Mum, Happy Mother’s Day!”, because it’s a bit uninspiring and impersonal. The woman who’s given up so much of the years to help you become the person you are today deserves more than that, surely?

Something thoughtful, heart-warming or light-hearted should do the trick. Get some inspiration from our suggestions below.
