Did you know that we’ve been celebrating Mother’s Day for over 100 years because President Woodrow Wilson declared it a national holiday in 1914? As a mother, I’d like to thank that man!
I’m still pretty old school when it comes to keeping in touch with friends. Yes, I use texts and e-mails to communicate, but I still like to drop a greeting card in the mailbox once in a while to let them know that I’m thinking about them. Hallmark is helping me out this year as I show my family and friends how much I appreciate them as mothers in my life. Between my actual mom, my sister who is a mom and countless friends who are moms, well let’s just say I have a lot of cards to mail out!
What I really like about Hallmark cards is that they have a card for everyone. Grandmas, Friends, Moms-to-Be: there is a card to send to any mom who has touched your life.
Some of my favorite cards come from Hallmark’s Shoebox line. They are funny and if the person you are sending them to has a good sense of humor, they will completely appreciate these greeting cards. If you’re looking for funny, you can’t beat a Mother’s Day card that says:
Good moms let their kids lick the beaters.
Great moms turn the mixers off first.
Ha! I love it!
Hallmark Signature Collection
Nothing beats a card and a gift in one! And some of the Hallmark Signature Collection Mother’s Day cards have the sentiments you want to convey and a small gift to go with it. Like these two cards that were sent to me by Hallmark. One has a beautiful wooden necklace attached and the other comes with a coffee cup cozy. I love them both!
I don’t know about you, but Hallmark never lets me down on finding just the right card for every occasion and for every person I want to send a card to, and this year for Mother’s Day they didn’t disappoint me with their Mother’s Day card selections.
*Hallmark sent me a package of Mother’s Day cards to review. All opinions are my own.
