Mother's Day Gifts Inspired by Our Own Moms (Hint: What She REALLY Wants This Year.)

Mother's Day Gifts Inspired by Our Own Moms (Hint: What She REALLY Wants This Year.)

We like to make the most of Mother’s Day — because, really, who’s better than mom? But the task of finding the absolutely perfect, happy-tears-inducing, display it on the coffee table* and save it for later card is a daunting task.

So we asked the moms of Lovepop HQ to weigh on which of our 3D cards they’d like to receive this holiday, but also what design they’re most likely to give.

Their answers might surprise you.

Why? Because while we have a stellar selection of Mother’s Day cards, we encourage you to dig deep into our archives to find the perfect card to represent that running family joke (no judgement), mom’s real favorite child, or that day you both agree was *the best day ever* when you were 10.

Need inspiration for your inspiration? We’ve got you covered.

Mother's Day card suggestions

Which Lovepop would you want?
Blue Morpho — It reminds me of my sister as she loves the color blue and this card is absolutely spectacular with all of the detail.

Which Lovepop reminds you of your own mother?
Fancy Lobster — I do not know anyone who enjoys lobster more than my mom. Every year, for her birthday, my dad cooks lobster and we make a huge mess of the kitchen.

Also, as always, if you give mom a Lovepop this year, share your story, pic, declarations of love, etc. with us. We'd love to hear about it. Hit us up on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram


*Our cards are designed to be displayed open, popped up, in their full glory. We like to think they’ll get prime placement. The fridge is for kids, but the coffee table is for closers.

Good day…My sister Susie had a birthday the same day as Mother’s day and yes she is a wonderful mother to my niece and nephews. I gave her the Monarch butterfly card. I so wish I would have videoed her reaction to the card. She opened it with out knowing it will “pop” . She was in shock and awe but also loved it. I am glad that I got to surprise her in that way. Thank you for all of the lovely cards.

I received the golden retriever and puppies card for my 70th birthday and I was thrilled. We love goldens and the card with the puppy dangling from it’s mother’s mouth is more than precious. Thank you Love Pop people!!!
