2. Personalize A Card
It's easy to buy a cute card and sign your name and even easier to send a card via email, but we encourage you to take card-giving up a notch. Considering making your own! You can go as simple as folding a piece of paper in half and writing a sweet note, or you can go all out and turn it into a personalized art project. If creativity isn't your greatest strength, spend some time picking out a store-bought card that reminds you of her and include a special, handwritten note. Either way, make mom feel like the card is just for her. Whether you live near or far, consider mailing the special card. Receiving a surprise in the mail is a rare thing these days!
3. Write Down Reasons You Love Her
