What Mom Wants for Mother’s Day

Research says that Mother’s Day and Christmas are the two largest money spending holidays each year. The National Retail Federation estimates that Americans spent over $170.00 on average for mom in 2015. That’s a lot of flowers and candy! But what does mom really want?

RetailMeNot conducted a nationwide survey of over 1,000 moms, and found moms really want to spend time with their families and have a nice meal (25%). You might be surprised to find out that she doesn’t want new electronics, cookware, clothing, or even a day at the spa. Shocking, I know! These gifts are better served during birthdays and other holidays. The other high ranking gifts on the survey included gift cards (16%), and the day off (13%). Furthermore, she loves gifts with meaning so a cute DIY project will work as well.

However, don’t be discouraged or freaked out if you’ve already gotten your mom one of these gifts above, just make sure you throw in a nice meal and everything should be all good!
