Some people just don’t get terribly excited about Valentine's Day. They don’t care about flowers or chocolates or any of the typical Valentine's Day chum. Maybe they buy the candy 50% off on Feb. 15 but never before. However, if they love literature or reading, whether the like or despise the holiday, they’ll appreciate a Valentine’s poem for mommy more than they ever would a box of chocolates. You won’t find a ton of fluffy or overly sentimental poems here; instead this list of Valentine's Day poems for whomever is a mother figure in your life will make her feel appreciated and may also introduce her to a piece of writing she hasn’t seen before.
Your own mom might not be the only person you're on the lookout for sweet Valentine's ideas for. Maybe you're on the hunt for a sentimental option for your wife or your kids' mother. Straying away from the traditional card and flowers combo can be a little daunting at first, but this list of Valentine’s Days poems for moms and beyond offers quite a range that might speak to your unique relationship with the special mom in your life.
Whether you tuck a handwritten version of any of these poems into a bunch of flowers or tape them atop a heart-shaped box of chocolates, if your number one mom has a thing for poets, these these words are the sweetest gift she could receive on Valentine's Day.
Whether your mom or mother-in-law is a poetry fan or you’re looking to express your love for your mom on Valentine’s Day but words aren’t coming easy, a poem that relays your feelings is always a thoughtful gift. You could even consider buying a poetry book with a bookmark on the poem you want her to read.
