Father's Day Cards for Moms (and Vice Versa)

UPDATE June 24, 2014: The Mahogany brand is about affirmation, and when we hear we're having the opposite effect, it's time for a change. Your voices have been heard: we will no longer produce a card in the Mahogany line for a mom on Father's Day (or a dad on Mother's Day). Thank you for the gift of your feedback.

For years, consumers have expressed a desire for cards that specifically acknowledge the role of a single mother on Father's Day, as well as the reverse – cards for single dads on Mother's Day – and cards to honor other people (neighbors, coaches, aunts and uncles, etc.) in someone's life on Mother's Day and Father's Day. Hallmark has offered choices appropriate to these situations for the past several years, available in multiple card lines. 

In 2014, we offer one "To Dad on Mother's Day" card in our general Mother's Day line, as well as "Like a Mother" cards appropriate for many relationships.

For Father's Day 2014, we offer one "To Mom on Father's Day" card in our general Father's Day line and one in our Mahogany card line, both of which also include "Like a Father" options.

Not every card is available in every store that carries Hallmark, so check with your local retailer for availability (Hallmark Gold Crown store locator.) 

Card-shoppers also have the choice of creating personalized cards for either of these holidays, acknowledging any parent or individual playing a parenting role, through the personalized print-on-demand section of Hallmark.com.

 

Note:  Online reports about these cards in 2011, which may still be available on the internet, included a number of inaccuracies, including an image of a Mother's Day card from the 2011 Mahogany Mother's Day line erroneously identified as a Father's Day card for a mother.
