Birthday cards for moms are a great opportunity to thank them for all that they do. Think about a message that they can hold onto forever, and that will encourage them to sit back, relax, and enjoy their special day to the fullest.
“Happy birthday, Mom! Everyday I am grateful to have you in my life. Let today be another reminder that you’re the best. Love you!”
“You’re more than a mother. You’re the greatest woman I know. Thank you for everything and happy birthday!”
“Hope your day is full of relaxation, an abundance of love, and your favorite type of cake.”
“Mom, if it weren’t for you I would never have become the person I am today. Thank you for being a role model, mother, and an amazing friend. And most important of all, happy birthday!”
“Mom, thanks for all your support and your invaluable life lessons. Cheers to your best birthday yet!”
“I’m so lucky to have a mother like you. You are my best friend, the best mom, and the best person I know. Happiest of birthdays to you!”
“Roses are red, violets are blue. There’s no one I’d rather turn to you in times of trouble than you. Happy birthday to you, mom, you’re the best!”
“Mom, you know how to bring our family together like none other. We love you with all of our hearts. Happy birthday, dear mother! Love, your children.”
“Mom, you are a role model, a genius, a superwoman, a five-star chef, and the most gorgeous person I know. How do you do it all! Cheers to another year of living your best life, happy birthday!”
“I am sending warm wishes and loving thoughts your way for your birthday. Even though we are apart, you will always be in my thoughts as well as in my heart. Happy birthday Mom!”
“Sometimes life gets tough but I always rest assured that I can make it over any obstacle in my way with the power of your love. Thanks for being the best mom the world has to offer, happy birthday!”
“Throughout my whole life, you have showered me with your love. Thank you for always giving me your all. I do my best to always return the favor! Happy birthday, mom!”
“Happy birthday, Ma! My hope is to be the amazing role model for my own family one day as you have been for ours. Your love is the best!”
“Thank you for always providing me with hope, encouragement, joy, and support. You are the best, and I hope that your birthday is as unforgettable as you are.”
“Everyday I learn something new from your grace, wonder, and compassionate soul. Here’s to another year of invaluable life lessons! Happy birthday, Mom!”
A birthday is a day that should be full of joy, so laughter is heavily encouraged! Keep your mom's sense of humor in mind as you compose your fun-filled greeting.
“However old you are is the new 30. Happy birthday!”
“Like fine wine, we get better with age. Or maybe we just feel better about our age with a little bit of wine!”
“Happy birthday to someone who is smart, talented, pretty, creative, and fabulous! I love that we’re so much alike.”
“It is scientifically proven that people who have more birthdays live longer. Congrats on your success!”
“At least you’re not as old as you will be next year. Happy birthday!”
“Time to tell you the truth, mom, you don’t bake the best cookies in the world. But you do give the best hugs, kisses, back scratches, care when I’m sick, support when I’m down and home to come back to. Your Thanksgiving turkey isn’t too bad either. Happy Birthday!”
“Just like you’re not supposed to have a favorite child, I’m not supposed to have a favorite parent. But between you and me, let’s just say dad didn’t get as great of a gift as you’re getting this year. Happy Birthday, Mom! From your unofficial favorite child.”
“Here’s to hoping all your candles this year don’t set off the fire alarm. Your birthday is gonna be lit!”
“You may be getting older Mom, but think on the bright side, you’ll at least always be younger than Dad! Happy birthday.”
“Just imagine the things you’d want to hear on your birthday and then pretend I said them. Love you mom!”
“If things really do get better with age, then you’re nearing perfection! I bet it feels as good as it looks. Happy birthday, mom!”
“Your birthday outshines all the other 364 days of the year. Happy birthday, mom!”
“For your birthday, how about a fruit salad instead of cake? A fruit salad with mostly grapes – no, all grapes. Fermented grapes. Wine it is!”
“I can barely keep up with everyone’s birthdays these days but you better believe I’d never forget yours! Happy birthday to the best mom there is!”
“A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, the best woman in the world was born! Happy birthday mom!”
