Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate everything that our moms mean to us. While it’s not the only occasion we honor our mothers, it is one that lets the most important woman in our lives know just how greatly she is appreciated. Whether you’re planning on taking your mom out to a delicious Mother’s Day brunch or enjoying a low-key night in with a Mother’s Day-inspired movie, you will need a Mother’s Day card to go with that Mother’s Day gift you handpicked for her.
Since we were little, our mothers have been our trusted confidants, best friends and support systems no matter how far away we’ve landed. That said, a mother’s love is a beautiful thing that can’t be captured in just one word. If you’re in need of heartfelt messages to share with your mom, we’ve rounded up iconic Mother’s Day quotes from actors, singers and poets, among other geniuses who’ve perfectly described a mother-child relationship. These sayings can be put into a memorable morning text, email or paired with flowers. While crafting your Mother’s Day message, you might want to customize it even more with a poem and quotes for mother-daughters, mother-sons or new moms.
