Sending a card with your Mother's Day flowers? Here are some Mother’s Day card ideas to help!

The days are getting cooler, Christmas feels like a distant memory and Mother’s Day is almost upon us once again. As the second Sunday of May looms large on the calendar, we are reminded to take time out of our lives and say a much-deserved thank you to our hard-working mums and mum-figures.

On the second Sunday of May – this year, Sunday May 14 – mums around the country will be waking to well-meaning brekkies in bed, homemade crafts and flowers aplenty. And of course, the highly anticipated pièce de resistance: the Mother’s Day card.
