If you’ve experienced that sinking gut feeling that comes from remembering just a few days too late that you’ve forgotten Mother’s day, you probably need something to help you out this season.
Remember that giving and sending cards for Mother’s Day is not only for your mother! You can give your wife, the mother of your children, a card to tell her how much you love her.
Also, you can send a card to a dear friend, to greet her on Mother’s Day. Sometimes it is such a great pleasure to find that someone really appreciates all the work and thoughts you spend in bringing up your children.
Mother’s Day always falls on the second Sunday in May (in 2016 it is May 8th), so unless you’re reading this on that very day or shortly thereafter, you’ve still got time. And if you figure out a plan long in advance, you can enact it in time to make your mom feel special and loved on the day of the year dedicated to her.
Some people like to buy gifts, others like to take their moms out to eat, and some prefer the ol’ breakfast in bed routine. Only you can know what your mom would like best, and usually it’s something personal and uniquely designed to show her you care.
Almost no matter what your plan may be, you need to accompany it with a card. Because once the day is over, and the present is opened and the meals are eaten and life resumes, mothers day cards are the best reminder of your feelings for her. They’re the thing she’ll read over and over late at night, when you’re all grown up and moved out, and when she needs to remember her darling child.

Remember Her From Afar
Happy Mother’s Day cards aren’t just a great idea for something to hand your mother along with her mother’s day breakfast.
Not all of us live near enough to our mothers to be able to do that, and we have to contact her from afar.
If you’re a grown adult, gone off to college or long since moved away, you can still make your mother smile on her holiday. These days, anyone can make an online call or have a video chat, and those are great ideas too, but sometimes a physical reminder of how much you love her is the best way to make your mother happy.
Printable Mother’s day cards do just that.
Print out a card, write a little note to your mother to remind her how important she is to you, and then drop it in your mailbox. It only takes slightly longer than sending an email would, but it’s guaranteed to be far more treasured and valued. Odds are it will be one of the only pieces of snail mail your mother receives that isn’t a bill or an advertisement, and for that reason and many others (like the fact she can look at the physical card any time she pleases) it’s worth sending.
The card with the text: “To Dear Mother” written in flowers, will be the size 3,5 x 5,5 inches approx printed with 300 dpi.
