But, what should you give her to go with the card?

• Handmade Lip Balm -- Did you know that you can make your own lip balm for mother easily? All you need is a bit of petroleum jelly and something that will give it scent or flavor - such as cocoa, ground nut powder, or coconut oil. It is an easy gift to make, but it's one she'll appreciate!

• Homemade candles -- If you've never made candles before, it can be a lot of fun to give her a homemade candle as a gift. All you'll need is wax and a contain in which to cast the candle, and some ice can come in handy if you want to make beautiful ice candles. This is a gift that's both beautiful and practical!

You can find an old beautifully decorated cup in a second hand shop and make it into a candle, this would be a great idea for a Mother's Day Gift.


I have borrowed this photo from here, where you will find step by step instructions of how to make the candle.

• Customized Tote Bag -- For the eco-friendly mother that does all her shopping with a cloth tote bag, you can make her an awesome gift using just scraps of fabric you have around your house. Make her a tote bag specifically in her style, and give it to her to show her just how much you love her.

• Coupons -- Most coupons can be found pretty cheaply, but they make a great gift for a mother that likes to save money on shopping, eating out, or going to the movies. Collect a book full of coupons, and gift them to her on this special day. You may not have to spend a single cent, but you can save her a small fortune.

• Surprise Meal -- If you want to show Mom just how much you love her, bring everything you'll need to make her a breakfast in bed on her special day. Spend the night at her house, and wake up early in the morning to surprise her with a special meal.

Thoughts about Mother's Day: 

The most important thing to remember is that it's your mother's special day, so make Mother's Day a day for her to remember.

As her child, your goal is to show her just how much you love her, and making the gift yourself is so much better than buying it at a store. Of course, it should be something that is practical and usable, but a handmade gift accompanied by a customized card is definitely a good way to let her know that you care enough about her to spend your time making her something she'll love.

Check out the various free Mother's Day cards we have on this page, and see if there's one that catches your eye.
Right click the card to open the more printable version in a new tab. Print it out, but remember that you MUST write a personalized message to your mother.
You can send her a simple message like:

"Mom, thanks for being the best mother a guy or gal could ask for.
You were always there for me when (X-problem in your life), and I've come to appreciate you so much more now that I have grown older (or become a parent). I know I can never repay you for all the hard work you invested in me, but this little card and gift is a token of how much you mean to me."

This message is sure to put tears of happiness in her eyes!

I think now is the time and place for giving you some different Mother's day card verses you can use for your card, if you have a hard time thinking of something original to write :-)


Mother's Day Poems:

First a Mother's day verse from a husband and kids:

"You are the perfect
wife and mother.
You bring sunshine
to our days.
We hope you enjoy
this special day.
With love for now
as well as Always."

"My Mother, my friend so dear
throughout my life you're always near.
A tender smile to guide my way
You're the sunshine to light my day."

"My Mom, she's the best,
from her head to her toes.
She's warm and she's soft,
smelling sweet like a rose."

"For all you do
you do with love
You are so special
a gift from above
And with all my heart
I want to say
I love you Mom
Happy Mother's day."

"To My Mother
You mean the world to me.

"I am so lucky to have you around
offering me good advice and
keeping my feet on the ground.
You have always been there for me
throughout any trouble or strife.
You have taught me so many things
about how to get through my daily life.
You mean so much to me that
I thought you should know
I love you very much."

More Mother's Day Poems and Verses:

On your special day
the sun shines brightly
here, there and everywhere
'round the world."

"A mother's work is never done,
she works from morning until dawn.
She spreads her love and keeps you warm,
but only once a year we say:
Mother we wish you Happy Mother's Day!"

And here comes two Mother's day verses you can use if you make a card for Mother's day together with some toddlers.

Make some colored fingerprints of the little one as a frame on a card, and write one of these cute verses:

"Dirt and cookie fingerprints
are not too hard to find.
You'll see them on our walls and drawers.
Where I go, they're left behind!
But soon I'll learn to wash my hands
and tuck them by my side.
The walls and drawers clean once more
no grubby marks to hide.
So here I leave my fingerprints
each and every one.
Painted as a reminder
of dirt and cookies and fun.
Happy Mother's Day"

"Fingerprints, fingerprints everywhere!
On the windows and walls, even the chair.
You wipe them and scrub them and wash them away.
But on this card they are here to stay!
I love you Mom! Happy Mother's Day!"
