The beginning of spring means that Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Now is the time to start looking for the perfect card for the greatest woman in your life. Luckily, there's no shortage of unique cards from independent makers around the world. Or, if you’re inclined to crafts, you can let yourself be inspired by the beauty and wit of creatives and make your own sweet sentiment.

When it comes to the themes that inspire Mother’s Day card ideas, flowers are the most common. Artists have drawn gorgeous arrangements that reflect the inner beauty of the card recipient. But if blooms aren’t your thing, there are plenty of clever designs available. Etsy store WellDrawnCards created a pun-derful piece for a coffee-obsessed mom that says “I love you a latte,” accompanied by a picture of two coffee cups. Going in a different yet similarly punny direction, eBay store Huckleberry Ice uses real LEGOs to create a personalized family with the line, “We will never LEGO you.”

While some overlook store-bought pieces over a homemade card, there are plenty of options that will appeal to your mom's personality, whether she loves pop culture or cherishes a timeless floral style. After all, it's the handwritten message inside the card what truly makes these sentiments a gift. For an extra special touch, try sealing the envelope with a beautiful sticker or adding a decorative stamp.

Mother's Day is also a great time to celebrate other maternal figures in your life, such as a grandmother or an aunt, so we've added a few options for them as well. No matter what style of card you choose, wish your mom a Happy Mother's Day and let her mom know how much she means to you!
