A Guide to the Best Mother’s Day Cards – 2022 Edition

We love our Mums!  A great way of celebrating and showing that love is on Mothering Sunday, and here I wish to help you find that unique card.

For over a century, the day has been recognised as a day to celebrate motherhood. Traditionally, flowers, cards and gifts are given.  In the UK, Mother’s Day is celebrated in March traditionally, whereas, in the US where it originates from, it is celebrated in May.

Mothering Sunday falls on 27th of March 2022.

My search has uncovered some of the best Mother’s Day cards online to help you find that perfect card for your mother. I have tried to offer a good cross-section of printed and hand-made cards the latter having options for personalisation.

I think all Mums love afternoon tea, that may be their special treat for the day, if not here’s a few cards on this idea!

Here are a few cakes to be going on with, and by the way Mum you are the Sweetest.

Does Mum make the best cakes? Well, thanks for raising me, Mum!

Pop Up cards are very popular, obviously more expensive as they can be quite elaborate in design and construction. But I’m sure they will be kept on show long after the day, being such a decorative gift.

Birds are always high up on my list when choosing cards.  We love the traditional British birds, those we invite into our garden with feeders, the visitors to our country, the wild birds, wading birds, and even exotic birds only found in tropical climes.

As usual, with my ‘A Guide To…’ blogs I have enjoyed seeking out some great cards for you to look through. Mother’s Day is still one of the most popular days in the card industry calendar for sending cards. The choice is sometimes over-whelming, so hopefully my selection will assist your search for that perfect card, as Mums always deserve the best.
