Nobody loves snail mail more than mom. Mother’s Day cards are a fun way to say “I love you” with the lick of a stamp. Most conventional greeting cards are sappy and tacky; here, we’ve curated options that avoid those pitfalls: These are wittily written and beautifully designed. We also suggest you accompany the best Mother’s Day cards (all available online!) with a trip to a day spa, a cocktail at a rooftop bar or a meal at one of the best Japanese restaurants in America.
