What to Write in a Card


I know you don't want to be reminded about growing another year older. But, I can't let this day pass without greeting you a “happy birthday!”

We will always be your #1 fans. Happy birthday, sweetheart! We love you.

Having you as a son is something every parent dreams of. You have a kind and compassionate heart that always chooses to see the best in people. Thank you for being you. Happy birthday! I love you always & forever.

I know that nothing would make you happier today than watching your favorite football game with an ice cold beer, but before I get those ready I want to greet you a happy birthday.

To my partner in crime, thank you for always being there for me through thick and thin. Happy B-Day!

You’re not just the kindest and most awesome best friend, you're also my sister. May you have many more birthdays, and may there be more adventures for the two of us!

Because today is your birthday, I’m declaring a truce. I also want to take this time to tell you how thankful I am to have you as my brother, despite your ability to annoy me like nobody else can.

Today, I promise to be the sweetest, most agreeable sister. However, tomorrow's a different day. Okay, enough of the cheesiness. I hope you have a blast. Happy birthday!

No matter how old you get, I still think of you as my little boy. I hope you know I’ll forever be your loving mom. 

Happy birthday to the best grandma in the world! I can't believe how lucky I am to have you in my life. You are my angel and I hope I can make you see just how special you are to me. I love you!

Today marks another year in your life. I know you have concerns about growing old, but don’t worry. You don’t look a day over 30.

I’d like to greet you a happy birthday and to take this opportunity to let you know how much you mean to me. Thank you for showing me the value of laughter. Maybe that's the secret why you never seem to age.


Graduation is a time filled with possibilities. So, dare to dream that you can change the world and hope to make a positive difference wherever you go. Take risks without fear of failure because today's wrong decisions will be tomorrow's great lessons.

As you begin this new chapter, seek the counsel and guidance of those you look up to and people who care for you, like your family and friends. I wish you nothing but success!

Today, you are officially an adult. We couldn't be more proud of you! We are so excited to see you begin this new journey in your life.

Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to the king of our home! I love you, Dad!

I appreciate everything you've done for us and for being the pillar that we can always rely on. I only wish that I can be half the man you are when I have my own family. Enjoy your day!

Dad, despite facing some challenges, I’ve never heard you complain even once. I admire your resilience and tenacity in the face of life’s challenges, and I hope to be able to be as strong and brave as you are. Thank you for being such a wonderful example.

To the man who has always been there to wipe away tears and bandage scrapes. Happy Father's Day!

You set the bar high for fathers everywhere. Thank you for being an awesome example of the kind of person I should aspire to be. I’ll always be proud to call you my father. I love you.

They say a father is someone you always look up to no matter how tall you grow, and I can't think of another person I respect more than you. You are the most generous and kind hearted man I know, and our family is blessed to have you.

Dad, thank you for being you. If I had the chance to choose another father, you wouldn't just be my first choice. You’d be my only choice.

Mother's Day

If I haven't thanked you yet for being such a great mother, this day is a reminder to do so. Thank you, mom. You are awesome. You deserve to get back all the love you give. I love you so much!

Mom, you make doing the laundry, cleaning the house, running errands, and taking care of us seem effortless and fun. And, for that, you deserve a whole day of spa treatments and a shopping spree! I’m still saving up, so in the meantime, here’s a card with a voucher for unlimited hugs and kisses. You’re the best, Mom! I love you.

Mom, you are one amazing woman, and I’ll be forever grateful to have you as my mom.

Mom, you are toughest, most hard working, and most dedicated person I know. Thank you for being the very best mom you can be. I hope I can show you just how much I appreciate you. I love you, mom!

I don’t tell you often enough, but I think you’re a wonderful mother.

Your ability to know what the kids and I need before asking borders on the supernatural. I know you feel underappreciated sometimes, but we are thankful for every little thing you do for us. We love you!

With 24-hour work days, no days off, no monetary compensation, and no possibility of resignation, being a mom is the toughest job in the world. Not everyone can do it, but you make motherhood look easy.

Thanks, mom, for all your hard work. I don't always say it, but I appreciate everything you do.

You’re the best mom in the world! I hope that every day, I can make you feel just how special you are. I love you!

You are one strong woman, and I admire you for your perseverance and tireless pursuit of making your house feel like a home for your family. You are amazing! Happy Mother's Day!

Raising a child is difficult. Raising a child alone can seem impossible, but not for you. You are simply a superwoman.

As your mother, I’ve made countless mistakes that make me wonder how you got to be such a terrific mother. Your family is blessed to have you in their lives, my daughter. Happy Mother's Day! 

I am so proud of how good you are with your kids, how you treat your husband, and how you can pursue a career. Although I can't take any credit for it, I’m so glad you turned out to be the kind of person I’ve always dreamed of being. Happy Mother’s Day!

Our home is a haven where my heart and tummy are always full, where I know I’ll find comfort and joy, and where all my dreams can possibly come true. And that's all because of you, mom.


Everyone else is sending texts, or posting on social media, but I thought I’d send you this card. Call me old-fashioned, but some words are just more meaningful when you see them on paper. I love you, and I hope to spend many more Valentine's with you!

Darling, every day is Valentine's when we're together but today, I want to tell you in no uncertain terms that you are the only one for me.

I look forward to waking up every morning, because I know I’ll see your face. And, when I lie down beside you at night, I know I am home. On this day, I want to remind you that you have my heart, which has been and will always be yours. Happy Valentine’s. I love you!

Your boundless energy in taking care of me and our kids is something that still amazes me after many Valentine's together. I Love You! Happy Valentine’s Day!

This year, let me tell you how much I admire your strength, your wisdom, and your dedication. You are a lily among the thorns, and you have stolen my heart forever.

The man of my dreams had Chris Hemsworth's looks, Tom Hiddleston's voice, and Robert Downey Jr.’s wits. He had a Ferrari, a huge house, and a yacht. Then I met you, someone totally different from what I imagined. But, you know what? You are so much better. Because you are real, and you are mine. I love you. Here's to another special Valentine's day celebration!

You are like an apple tree among the trees of the forest. You are the one my heart loves. Your love is more delightful than wine, and your name is like perfume poured out. Beloved, you are mine, and I am yours.

I know being married to me hasn't always been cupcakes and rainbows. In fact, we’ve had our fair share of arguments. Thank you for sticking with me and loving me no matter how crazy I get.

The day you agreed to be my girlfriend was the luckiest day of my life, and every day after that you’ve shown me just how empty my life had been before I met you. Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’ll never stop showing you how happy you make me feel. Happy Valentine's Day! 

We’ve had our share of good days and bad. Sometimes, the bad can be so bad that I wonder how we can go on. But, I’ve long ago decided that good or bad, everything is worth it as long as we're together. I Love You!

So here we are, celebrating another Valentine's Day. Thank you for sticking with me all these years. I love you!
