(ALISO VIEJO, Calif.) -- If you were planning to buy your mom flowers for Mother’s Day this Sunday, think again. A new survey reveals moms consider flowers their “least desired” Mother’s Day gift.
Buy.com commissioned a survey of 1,000 adults and found that a day at a spa ranked as the top Mother’s Day gift, followed by gift cards and “something homemade.” More specifically, moms over the age of 55 ranked gift cards as their most desirable Mother’s Day gift, followed by a new computer.
When mothers were asked to describe the ideal way to spend Mother’s Day, most of them cited a “nice meal out,” followed by “spending time with family at home.”
The survey also found that 22 percent of respondents plan to spend at least $25 on Mother’s Day gifts and that 33 percent of Americans spend more on Mother’s Day gifts than Father’s Day gifts.
