Yes, Moms Really Do Love Getting Flowers and a Card for Mother’s Day

Two different surveys just came out that looked into what moms REALLY want for Mother’s Day.

And apparently women really do love getting flowers . . . a card . . . or anything sentimental.  Because all three of those things made the top five on both lists . . .

A survey by YouGov.com found the top ten things moms want this year are:  Flowers . . . a spa day . . . a card . . . a day to themselves . . . something sentimental . . . a day with no chores . . . jewelry . . . something homemade . . . candy . . . and clothes.  (Only 1% of women in the survey said electronics are the #1 thing they want.)

The second survey by Groupon found the top things moms want are:  A nice meal at a restaurant . . .  flowers . . . a card . . . something their child made them . . . something sentimental . . . perfume . . . jewelry . . . clothes . . . a massage . . . and a spa package.  (So a spa day, jewelry, and clothes also made both lists.)

The first survey also looked at WHO we’re giving presents to.  And 65% of adults plan to give at least one woman in their life a gift this year.

43% of us will buy something for our mom.  Our wife or partner is next at 18%.  Then mother-in-law, 13% . . . sister, 7% . . . grandmother, 6% . . . a friend, 4% . . . and another relative like an aunt, also 4%.
