Though it’s nice to go the extra mile with a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift, many moms are perfectly content to receive a handwritten Mother’s Day card filled with kind words and fond memories. And if you haven’t seen your mom as frequently (or at all) this past year because of the Covid-19 pandemic, a card can be a good way to remind the mother figure in your life how much she means to you and how excited you are to start spending time together again. Whether you want a funny Mother’s Day card or something more heartfelt and sweet, we compiled some great options from brands like Hallmark, PAPYRUS and LovePop plus some smaller artists on Etsy.
