[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] Best Mother's Day Cards Round-Up

We all know that you’re definitely going to get your mother a fantastic gift for Mother’s Day, but any considerate adult human knows that a thoughtful gift should be presented with a thoughtful card featuring words, written by you, sharing how you feel about that person. It’s the right thing to do.

But how can you tell the woman who gave you life how you feel? There are many things you feel about her—she’s your mother. Seriously—show me someone who says they have an uncomplicated relationship with their mother and I’ll show you a liar. You’re probably not going to figure out the right things to say, so it’s okay to rely on a good card that will say the things for you. All you have to say is the two most important words: “thank you.”

Check out all 15 awesome cards here.

[GIFTED] Big Guns Stationery

Guys don't typically send handwritten cards mainly because they are missing the gene that women have that attracts them to overpriced letterpressed things (we know how to tear a Papyrus UP, right ladies?).  Most dudes don't see the point in sending cards, but regardless of your gender, sending a physical, handwritten note will set you apart from all of the other idiots clamoring for people's attention.   

Big Guns Stationery ($13, Sent Well) is BEYOND dude-friendly, with cards featuring different types of GUNS and saying things like "Bustin' Caps" and "U Feelin' Lucky?" Your guy would feel TOTALLY comfortable sending this to his buddy to show his appreciation for helping him move, or taking care of him when he was hungover.

[GIFTED] Personalized Paper Dolls

For the person who has everything, here's a gift they're guaranteed NOT to have: custom paper dolls that look like them and their entire family.  Sound awesome?  A little creepy?  Yes and YES.  

Anyone that is a little bookish and weird and appreciates design and tiny paper things (this is basically the definition of twee, if that's a thing anymore) will FLIP out over these personalized paper dolls ($35, Jordan Grace Owens)

How does it work?  You send photos of the people you want to turn into paper dolls (they even do pets, if you want to descend that far into madness), and that's it.  You can even choose the outfit you want the Little Jackie Paper version of yourself to wear.

[GIFTED] Sperm & Egg Card

A friend of yours is pregnant!  What a joyous occasion!  Nevermind the fact that the announcement that someone who is your close friend and your exact age is about to give birth to a LIVE HUMAN CHILD is enough to make you break out into hives—you have to pretend like you're happy for her, and not completely TERRIFIED for her.

This Sperm & Egg Card ($5, McBitterson's) says, basically, "Congrats on letting nature take its course."  It also calls to mind the opening scene of Look Who's Talking, which is OUTRAGEOUS and is also a good thing to describe at the upcoming baby shower if you want everyone there to think you're a liar.

[GIFTED] You're My Everything [Bagel] Card

New York love is a special kind of love.  There are a million obstacles in your way.  Want to take someone out on a date for drinks and dinner?  FORK OVER A MILLION DOLLARS.  Want to live together in blissful happiness?  WRONG.  You are cohabitating in a tiny apartment that provides literally no breathing room for either of you so you end up fighting over someone leaving the shampoo on the side of the tub and not in the shower caddy WHERE IT BELONGS.  

You're not driving to your destinations in the comfort of your car, building memories as you jam along to your favorite songs, you're screaming at each other on the F train platform because you've been waiting 20 minutes and you SHOULD HAVE taken the other train, as one of you suggested. 

The odds are literally stacked against you, so whenever there's a long-lasting relationship that has sustained itself in the five boroughs of New York, you've got to take a moment and acknowledge that accomplishment.  Relationships in general are hard.  Relationships on New York City are brutal. 

This You're My Everything [Bagel] Card ($6, Fish Cake Design) is the perfect New York-y way to tell your significant other how much you care (and how you can't believe you've made it this long) this Valentine's Day.
