More People Are Planning to Buy Mother’s Day Gifts This Year Than Last Year . . . But What Does Your Mom Actually Want?

Mother’s Day is this weekend.  What’s that?  You’d totally forgotten?  Bad news:  She knows.  Somehow she knows.  She always knows.

 

 

Here are some results from a new survey about what we’re planning to do for Mother’s Day this year . . .

 

 

1.  76% of people are planning to buy their mom a gift, which is up from 70% last year.

 

 

2.  It’s also way higher than Father’s Day, where only 61% of people bought a present last year.

 

 

3.  We’re also planning to spend $30 MORE in 2018 than we did in 2017.  The average person spent $58 on Mother’s Day last year . . . this time around they’re going to drop $88.

 

 

4.  But what does your mom actually WANT?  Half of them say they want a nice dinner . . . and the rest are split evenly between getting flowers or a gift card.
