Whether you're shopping for your mum, grandmother, step-mum or friend, we take a look the the most original and witty Mother's Day cards available to buy on the internet. 

There's nothing like stumbling across a greeting card that perfectly captures the thoughts in your head. But it's not always easy.

Cue long, award moments spent staring at a spectrum of soppy, supposedly-funny and mawkish card faces. You pick one up, then put it back down.  

Thankfully, the internet has caught onto this and card makers around the world are offering alternatives to tired-old Hallmark creations. 

This Mother's Day (Sunday 6 March), the offering is genuinely hilarious, smart and, of course, they hit the nail on the head when it comes to delivering a complicated message. 

They also take into account that families are no longer cookie-cut, with options for step-mothers, grandmothers, mentors and any other mum-like figures you have in this world. 

Bid goodbye to prissy flowers, cutesy teddy bears and cringing words, for a more modern alternative...
