Mother's Day is fast approaching, and it's more important than ever to get your mom a card this year. This woman raised you, shaped you and made you the person you are today — and um, she changed your diapers. For years. But most importantly, coronavirus is making traditional Mother's Day celebrations a no-go this year.

Social distancing guidelines are likely going to extend well into May, making brunches and family get-togethers an impossibility for most of us. To make up for lack of in-person celebrating, shower your mom with what she really wants — to hear just how much you love her. Sure, she'd enjoy some jewelry or a fancy bag, but hearing her kids tell her that they appreciate her can top any material gift out there.

And don't forget the other important mothers in your life, from your grandma to your sister to your daughter who just became a mother herself.

Below, we found 20 greeting cards that will help convey your message. From super beautiful designs to ones that are going to make her laugh out loud, these are the best options for making any mom feel like the queen she is this Mother's Day.
