What to write in a Mother’s Day card for Grandma

Grandma and grand child

Writing a Mother’s Day card for Gran is just as important as writing one for Mum. For many of us, Grandma was there all the time growing up, when Mum was busy cleaning and cooking or working to make sure we could have food on the table. Grandma took us to the park during the school holidays and watched TV with us on rainy days. But what do you write on a Mother’s Day card for Nan? Here are some ideas:

  1. Thanks for being my parent’s parent and my best friend! 
  2. You are full of wisdom, and so much fun to be around. I am so lucky to have you in my life. 
  3. It's always good to have friends in high places. I can always go to my parent's parent if I have a problem with my parents that I can't get worked out. 


Treat Grandma that little bit extra for Mother’s Day 2021, and order some red roses and chocolate to be delivered to her door. It will make her whole week!

Whether you’re looking to have some fun or warm some hearts, a Mother’s Day card is a great way to remind your maternal figures just how much they are loved. Pair it with some next level roses delivered to her door, and you’ll be the favourite son/daughter/husband in no time!
