This day can be difficult and painful for many; I don’t want to be insensitive covering Mother’s Day so please feel free to avoid this post if it may be triggering. There are many who don’t have a relationship with their mothers, and those who have traumatic ones. Then there are those who have said goodbye to their mothers. I’d therefore like to take a moment to give thought & love to everyone struggling today, and to those who have lost their mums. They will always have a special place in our hearts.
My Mother’s Day Card For This Year
I spotted one and knew straight away it was perfect. My mother is often calling me a sarcastic little shit, though thankfully with a smile on her face! 😉
YouSaidIt cards offer something different to the norm, and I love that because cards can get a bit same-y over the years. I was lucky enough to be sent a free card of my choice to share my results with you lovely lot. I’m really glad to have discovered this brand because I can already see some other designs that would be perfect for father’s day and other birthdays later in the year. Those
unlucky victims delightful recipients will be in for a treat!
Mixing offence with entertainment and giggles, YouSaidIt offer something a little different to the norm. And I love it! They have a range of interesting, unique, politically incorrect, hilarious & novel greetings cards. They cover all occasions & holidays, and they also have a section for gifting goodness, like badges, mirrors & mugs. So many of these make me giggle, like the ‘I like dogs more than people’ and the ‘piss off I’m busy’ mugs.
There’s a good range of designs on cards and gifts, from gentle insults and light comedy, to unapologetic swearing in big bold letters to make your card/gift truly memorable 😉 If you’re easily offended, avert your eyes when looking at some of these.
I think the range is fantastic for being novel and unique, guaranteed to raise eyebrows and give the recipient a chuckle. Cards can get pretty boring and routine when buying from the shops, so YouSaidIt shakes things up a bit. I also like that you can customise the card, adding writing inside if you wish, and you can choose the colour envelope, too.
Card delivery is the price of a stamp, so 1st class is 67p, and 20p for additional items. You’ll get your card within 1-3 working days.
I ordered my card on the weekend and on Monday it was dispatched, which is super quick! It arrived on Wednesday, via standard 2nd class delivery, and came packaged in a cardboard-backed envelope. The card itself comes in plastic wrapping to keep it protected.

My Mother’s Day Shout Out
My mum is a gentle soul with a quick wit, sarcastic edge (wonder where I get it from), kind heart and patience of a saint. That patience has surely been tested with my declining health, rising anxiety & the challenges we’ve all faced from day to day. She has always been there for me, believing in me, talking me back from the edge, and we always manage to have a giggle. She’s also a crossword ninja & can be a sarcastic little shit herself, and I love that about her. She is an inspiration to me for her compassion tempered with a strength that knows no bounds. She is beautiful. My friend, always.
Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope you have a restful, relaxing one. Be kind to yourselves.
