33 Unique Mother’s Day Cards for One-of-a-Kind Moms

Apr 28, 2016

by Valerie Rains handmade and vintage goods

From text-every-day duos to twice-a-year power bonders, no two mother-child relationships are exactly alike. (Even — or perhaps especially — within the same family.) So why send mom a generic card when you could find one that fits your very specific parental situation to a T?

We searched far and wide to compile 33 wholly original options below; while selecting one of these practically-custom cards doesn’t excuse you from writing a heartfelt message inside, it does relieve a little of the pressure to be too poetic about it. Even last-minute types are in luck: Some of these designs come in the form of print-at-home files.
