Clever Substitutes for Greeting Cards for Mother’s Day

(all from Etsy)

Giving Mom a greeting card for Mother’s Day is traditional. But what if this year you mixed it up a bit? There are so many clever substitutes for the customary card from the grocery store! And as usual, Etsy creators have not let me down with their inspired offerings.

Thanks to all these amazing vendors for sharing with us! All images used with permission.

I am a huge fan of these Happy Mother’s Day Yard Signs from Big Dot of Happiness! The sign is 23″x15″ and comes with two metal stakes for secure placement. Each sign is professionally printed on waterproof, weather resistant corrugated plastic so your love for Mom will hold up in any weather! Signs for Mom are avaliable in different styles in the shop; other fun party supplies for Mom are also available. (Love this door sign!)

She may not be ready to travel just yet, but give Mom something to look forward to with these amazing Boarding Pass Vouchers from Journo Travel Goods! Each digital download has three different designs; each is yours to edit just for YOUR mom. Also provided is a step-by-step instruction sheet and video tutorial so personalization should be easy-peasy.

Currently all Mother’s Day items are 20% off with FREE shipping in the U.S.

A laser-cut Wooden Card from HereafterLA will be cherished by Mom for years to come. These gorgeous 4″x6″ cards are made from certified sustainable wood and sent with a colored envelope. You have the option of adding an engraved custom message on the back: in either a typed font or your own handwriting! A display block is also available so your love is on view for Mom at all times. Multiple styles of cards are available in the shop as well as other lovely wooden gifts. (I really like these wooden journals!) Shipping is free.

Everything you need for a special Mother’s Day is included in this Printable Breakfast in Bed Kit from Kudzu Monster.

A completely personalized wooden Gift Block from Glitzby will be on display all year! This 2″x2″ block can be personalized in any way you choose on every side. There are multiple “Mom images” to choose from; you can also submit a personal note or quotation.   You also have the option of natural wood or multiple hand-painted colors. The block can be turned into a photo holder with the addition of a metal prong. A lovely gift box presentation is available. Regular shipping is free; priority & express available.

Make a big statement with this Happy Mother’s Day Banner from DotsCrazy8! The cardstock letters are over 5″ tall, so everyone will know it’s time to celebrate Mom! Different patterns and colors are available in the shop. Suzanne is happy to ship directly to mom with your personalized message. (She offers your choice of wrapping for a small upcharge.)  You can also order the banner as a kit for the kids to put together as a special touch.

Give Mom a sentiment that she can display year-round with these unique and adorable Wooden Ladders from Sticks and Laser Art! Each slat is 1″x4″ and you can add as many as you need for the perfect message, a list of special names or dates, or Mom’s favorite saying! The possibilites are endless. The slats are laser etched and strung by hand and can be adjusted as needed. They also make great personal gift tags! Shipping is free.

Who needs a greeting card when you can give Mom this personalized Reasons I Love You Card Deck from JMarie’s Craft Room? The deck includes all 52 cards, each one with a reason you love your mom. If you need help with ideas, she even has a list! You can choose from different color card decks; each finished deck is shipped already perfectly packaged and tagged for mom.

If you just can’t choose (or have multiple helpers who can’t agree), this Mother’s Day Coloring Card 8-Pack from Sarah Renae Clark is the perfect solution! The cards are instant digital download in a zip file, so no waiting required. Final size after folding is approximately 5″x7″. Also available is a Mother’s Day Coloring Bundle which includes tags, bookmarks, coupons and more! (Visit Sarah’s website for even more coloring fun.)


For the gift you both can share, grab one of these fun Wine Labels from LitLabels! Each label is 4″x5″ and weatherproof. They are handmade in high-resolution and all you have to do is peel and stick! The shop also does customized labels if you have something special you want to say to Mom. Labels come in multiple styles. Wine not included. Unfortunately. (Wink.)
