Mini Mihi Cards, Free Printable Rauemi

Mini Mihi Cards, Free Printable Rauemi

Together with our friends at Reo Māori Mai, we've been dreaming up ways to include a little more Te Reo Māori into our day to day gestures. 

They say it’s the small things that count - ahakoa he iti, he pounamu - and we can’t help but agree. Sometimes it’s the smallest gesture of kindness and love that can make your day, a moment of aroha to hold on to. With that in mind, we have created these mini mihi cards as a tohu of aroha. There are so many ways you can use these cards to share mihi with your loved ones - in their lunchbox, under their pillow, as a gift tag on a koha or bunch of putiputi, and more.

This free printable is one a4 page that contains 9 small home-printable mini mihi cards with the below Te Reo Māori phrases

The cards include:

1) Kei te whitinga o te rā, nui te aroha mōhou - My sunshine, I love you so much 

2) E te tau, kia hari, kia koa tēnei rangi - Darling, have a great day 

3) Nōu te rā e te piki kōtuku - The day is yours, my love 

4) E poho kererū ana ahau i a koe - I am so proud of you 

5) He puna aroha e kore e mimiti mōu e te kuru pounamu - My love for you is endless, my dear 

6) Kei te kuru auhuka, ka tāria tō hokinga mai - My darling, I can't wait til you're back

7) E taku māpihi maurea, mei kore ake koe - My love, I couldn't be without you

8) Pai tū, pai hinga - You got this, no matter what

9) Kei te kuku o taku manawa xx - My love xx


We wanted to make these rauemi as accessible as possible, and so have created two versions. This free printable sheet, and for those of you who prefer the conveniece of a readymade, you can purchase the cards here.


This free printable is brought to you by our Aho x Mai Collaboration.

AhoMai is a collaboration between Aho Creative and Reo Māori Mai - two Kāi Tahu whanaunga who have dreams of weaving reo, design and te ao Māori into everyday whānau life in fun, practical and beautiful ways. We have been lucky enough to be supported by Te Mātāwai in creating and delivering our initial suite of rauemi/resources. It is through this support that we have been able to ensure that the rauemi we are providing are affordable and accessible to as many whānau as possible.


Check out @reomaorimai on Instagram and Facebook for pronunciation support with these mihi if you’d like to also have a go saying them to each other.

Ps. we'd love to see how you use your free printable. Please tag us on instagram and share with us on Facebook!

Mother's Day is upon us again, there's always a bit of tension in these days for us - not wanting to buy in to the idea that there is one specific day of the year where māmā (or pāpā) should be acknowledged, while also supporting wholeheartedly the whakaaro of showing love and appreciation for those in our lives who fill these important roles.  Continue reading
