Sure, a gift is always a nice gesture. But we happen to think (and we’re pretty sure your mom would agree!) no gift is complete without a card. Yes, you could go for any old car in the drugstore on your way over to Mom’s house. But let’s be honest: Are you really going to find just the right thing when the shelves are picked bare and you’re in a rush? Our money is on no. Rather than considering the card an afterthought, put as much time and effort into finding the right one as you would the main gift. We know: That seems like it would take a lot of time, and your schedule is already jam-packed. But think of it as the icing on the cake—your gift just wouldn’t be complete without the finishing touch. And truthfully, finding a great card doesn’t have to be hard. There are hundreds of online retailers with greetings that are far superior to what you’ll find in your local store. And if sappy isn’t your style, you’re in luck. Yes, you can find sweet, sentimental cards online. But you can also find silly and honest cards that will really catch her attention. There are so many to choose from, you’ll never be able to pick just one, which is why our editors have done the hard work for you. We browsed and scrolled until we were confident we’d found the best cards out there. Buy a few now—and save the rest for next year or even her birthday.
