This year, show mom you (finally!) speak her language with a unique Mother’s Day card so specific it could have been written just for her. We searched far and wide to compile the 33 wholly original options below—and while selecting one of these practically custom cards doesn’t excuse you from penning 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.
