I love you, Mum!” 

Your Mum knows you love her, you know you do, but are you going to leave the card just with those three words? What else can you add? What to write in a Mother’s Day card when you're not a word wizard?

I Love You Mum: Add Sweet Words to a Mother’s Day Card

From the day they bring us to the world or take us under their wing, mothers take care of us. Every mother-child relationship is different, but it’s always filled with love. If you want to make your Mum feel warm and loved, add one of these heartfelt messages.

I know I don’t say it a lot, but I mean it every time: I love you, Mum! Happy Mother’s Day.

Thank you for making the person I am today. I love you, Mum!

I am so glad you are my Mum! I love you so much!

When I close my eyes and think of home, I always imagine you there. I love you, Mum!

Mum, I get it now, you were right. No one loves you as much as your mother. And you know what? I love you too, Mum!

Thank you for being the greatest Mum in the world. I love you!

Thank you for being there for me every single day. You’re a fantastic person. I love you, Mum!

You showed me what love is; you taught me what it means to care, and gave me courage. Thank you. I love you, Mum!

Have a wonderful day, Mum; you deserve it. I love you! 

Having a great Mum, a person that supports you every step of the way, that’s really special. Thank you for being there for me. I love you, Mum!

What to Write in A Mother's Day card: Funny Mothers Day Messages

Some Mums aren’t much into classic “I love you messages”. That doesn’t mean that they don’t like to get a card and a hug, they just prefer it wrapped around in a joke.

I know I was your favourite child. And don’t worry, you were always my favourite Mum! 

I turned out better than my sister. I guess you had something to do with that. Happy Mother’s Day!

This Mother’s Day card is also an opportunity to ask you to stop sharing my childhood photos on your Facebook. Thanks. Brilliant.

You always said that I’m the greatest gift you ever got in your life. And now, I’m sending you a Mother’s Day card. You must be overwhelmed just by this, so I didn’t get you anything.

Always remember Mum that I love you more than (sister/brother name) does!

Happy Mothers Day! You are one of my two best parents I’ve ever had!

When I was little, I thought you had superpowers. Now I know that it was wine. Cheers, Mum, it’s Mother’s Day!

You did one thing in your life, right - me! Happy Mother’s Day, Mum!

Mothers Day Messages From Daughter

Mothers and daughters have a special kind of a relationship. It’s complicated, it can be filled with arguments, but there’s always a lot of love there.

“Like mother, like daughter”. I hope that saying is true as I love the fact I have an amazing Mum. 

You always know what I am going through. Thank you for being such an amazing Mum!

You were the best role model I could have asked for. I love you, Mum!

I am so lucky you are my Mum. I love you!

Since I was a little girl, I always knew that my Mum would be there for me, no matter what. Thank you for being the biggest support in my life. I love you, Mum!

Mothers Day Messages From Son 

Boys and men usually have a hard time saying to their mums how much they love her. Mums know that, but still, they are happy to hear that.

Flowers always bring a big smile on a Mum's face.

Here are some ideas on what to write in a Mother's Day card when you're a son:

I love you, Mum! Your son, who isn’t really good with words.

I was such a stubborn boy. Thank you for being so patient with me. You are an amazing Mum; I love you!

I’m not your little man anymore, but I still love you! Happy Mother’s Day!

You’re the best Mum in the world. I love you. 

Thank you, Mum, for all the packed lunches, for all the reminders, for all the love and understanding. I love you!
