It’s that time of year again! The one-day event where we mums get a sleep-in, a cup of tea in bed and a handmade card to say thanks for everything that we do. 

Add a bit of humour to the day with these funny Mother’s Day cards that capture the joy of motherhood like no other.

We’ve searched far and wide (aka Etsy) to find the best of the best in funny Mother’s Day cards. Behold, 17 of our favourite ways to say “Thanks Mum” in card form.
