Take the time to express yourself in a way that shows your partner, mother, spouse, sister, friend why you love them.

Does Mother’s Day always seem to creep up unexpectedly for you? Us too. But what an important day to celebrate and make time for the women in our lives who are worth celebrating.

This year, we encourage you to take time – through gift giving or even just a sweet note – to tell the person in your life who represents motherhood to you, just how much they mean and why they’re special and valuable.

No matter where you are on the spectrum of motherhood, we want you to know how incredibly important you are.

For those of you searching for just the right thing, with just the right amount of practicality, beauty, and sentiment, we present to you: a Mother’s Day gift guide. Complete with our suggestions for the perfect gift AND a little guide for writing a thoughtful note.

How to write a thoughtful Mother’s Day note

Start with a salutation that acknowledges that person.

Next, lead with a well-considered line that demonstrates the traits or ways that they are unique, special, important, valuable, cherished. Sharing a sincere compliment will allow you to express something that you might think all the time, but not mention all that often.

One of our favourite ways to make a note personal and special is to share a brief thank you for a specific experience or scenario – this shows the person that you pay attention to the ways they work hard every day.

Finally, end with an expression of love and affection.
