Messages to Mom: 10 Loveliest Mother's Day Dedications

April 29, 2023 5 min read

Mothers Day gifts and messages

We confess: while we love our moms and are completely grateful for them, we don't always know how to say it. When Mother's Day rolls around, it can be hard to write a note in her card or to say something to her to express our love. We might simply call her the "Best Mom in the World," but we want go further with a more specific and sincere message.

Here at Gear Den, we understand this dilemma all too well, so we've compiled our best Mother's Day messages to help you out. Even better, we've put these dedications in beautiful, customizable Mother's Day gifts that you can order for your momma. Take your pick!


1. "You Are The Mom Everyone Wishes They Had"

custom wall art gift for mother - you are the mom everyone wishes they had - with kids names

This is the highest praise for a mother. Moms walk the fine line between being a sensible parent and being a likeable person to their kids. And truth is, children won't always like how their mom is parenting them. So it's an incredible honor for your mom to hear that she's the mother any child would pick.

Give this message to your mom in the form of a customized artwork, complete with the names of you and your siblings. Prepare for teary eyes!

2. "Mom, You Are Our Superhero"

Moms are "at work" 24/7 -- getting everyone ready in the morning, cleaning up after dinners in the evening, doing chores on weekends, and even thinking of household needs late at night. With all the multitasking a mother has to do, it's almost like she's superhuman!

Show her that her efforts are seen. Write a note enumerating the many ways she's nurtured you, for which you are thankful. It's a concrete affirmation that she's nailing the difficult role of motherhood.

3. "Family: Crazy, Loud, A Whole Lot Of Love"

Your mother has surely built a beautiful family -- a family that's a little bit crazy, a little bit loud, and with a whole lot of love! Celebrate this with her through a collage of your happy, zany family photos. Above, our customizable artwork includes your selected photos into the actual canvas print. It will look perfect on your mom's gallery wall!

4. "Hands Full, Hearts Full"

Nothing would make a mother happier than seeing her family healthy, joyful, and full of life. That's why we've included this quote that celebrates a lively household: "If you think our hands are full, you should see our hearts." If you have a big, bustling family with lots of busy-ness every day, this is the perfect message!

Our wall art above expresses this joyousness and includes up to 12 names in your family. On Mother's Day, get all your siblings together and surprise your mom with this piece!

5. "Mom, You Are Nothing Short Of Amazing"

Sometimes, you just have to pause and take in the incredible things your mom has done for you. Motherhood is immense, and only the most amazing persons can do it well. So when you sign your Mother's Day card or choose a Mother's Day present, you'll want to put into words how awestruck you are when you think of your mom.

Above, our wall art uses these actual words in calligraphy style, complete with a pretty watercolor-print border. This would look great on your mom's dresser, desk, bedroom, or even kitchen.

6. "These Are The Best Days Of Our Lives"

Want a unique message to mom on Mother's Day? Try this: list down important dates in your family -- such as your parents' wedding day and the dates the children were born -- and describe what these dates mean to you. You can even turn this into an artwork, just like our custom wall print above!

When hung in your living room or entry, it not only reminds your mom of special moments, it can also serve as a conversation piece when guests are around.

7. "Not 'Step,' Not 'Half,' Just Family"

custom wall art - we aren't step family, not half family, just family - with names print

Are you a blended family with step-parents or half-siblings? Here's a meaningful message for your mom: "We aren't 'step.' We aren't 'half.' We're just family." It's a wonderful affirmation that no matter how the family was formed, you embrace it as a solid unit, brought together by loving parents. And trust us, that's the best thing to hear for parents of a blended household.

Our wall print above delivers this message alongside the names of all your family members. It's so thoughtful that one of our customer exclaimed, "This means so much to me."

8. "Love Grows Best With You"

custom family wall art - love grows best in houses like this - with name print

"Mom, you've brought us up with such care and affection. Love grows best in houses just like this."

We're huge fans of this sentiment that praises not only your mother but also the household she's built. Such a lovely thought deserves to be printed and displayed where mom (and the whole family) can see it every day. In our wall decor above, we made sure to print the quote on a realistic wood-like background for a rustic, homey feel. Get your own through the link below!

9. "Mother And Daughter - Love Forever"

Special shoutout to daughters who went through a rebellious phase then turned around and became best friends with their moms! At Gear Den, we are so familiar with this family dynamic, so we've included this message that a love between mother and daughter is forever. It's short and simple, but if you and your mother have gone through so much, this message will mean a huge deal to her.
