Apologies if this isn't the right kind of "translation" to ask for in this subsdrta.net.
You are watching: How to say i love you mom in french
My mother speaks French; I do not beyond simple phrases. I would like to surprise her with a bracelet for Christmas engraved with "I love you, Mother" in French. What is the best why to say this?
I've found a few phrases from Googling but I'm not sure which capitalization or word choice is the most natural in French.
Je t'aime, Maman
Je t'aime, maman
"Mère" instead of "maman"
"J'aime" instead of "je t'aime"
something else entirely
And finally, I know some languages have different words for "love" depending on the connotation. Since this is for my mother I want a word for "family love" and not something weird like sexual desire or "friend-zone" love. I'm 98% confident je t'aime/j'aime is the way to go for this but I wouldn't mind a second opinion.
Thank you so much anyone who's willing to help me.

Je t'aime, maman is your best choice.
Edit: Fixed an incorrect capital letter. Thanks to u/Frog-Eater for bringing my attention to it.

Thank you, that's exactly what I wanted to know!
And thank you too u/Frog-Eater, I didn't know if French capitalized regular nouns used as a name like English does.

Je t'aime, maman.
I disagree with /u/Lux_Obscura, there's no reason for the M to be in caps, maman is a regular noun.

Maman je t'aime isn't too bad, if a little childish.
