The best alternative Mother's Day cards to stand out from your siblings

Finding the perfect Mother's Day card can be a real ordeal. You want your mum to know just how long you spent carefully assessing each card in the shop, determined to find something special that speaks to her unique and wonderful personality.

Nope, an insipid floral card bought hastily last minute simply will not cut it.

Like memes for grown-ups, greeting cards have really upped their game in recent years and Mother's Day is no exception.

From favourite child jokes and apologising for being an ongoing financial burden, to our personal favourite: the Bohemian Rhapsody card, there's something on shelves for all cynics and jokers these days.

And, in an age where family comes in all shapes and sizes, it's important not to forget the women who have a mother-like presence in our lives, whether they brought us up or not.

We've rounded up the best quirky and alternative Mother's Day cards out there. If you order one now, it will almost look like you actually planned ahead...
