Almost one third of moms in America (31 percent) say they often pretend to like their Mother’s Day gifts, according to World Vision.
Does that statement hold true for you?
The average person will spend $152.52 on gifts this Mother's Day with total spending expected to reach $18.6 billion, according to Forbes.
Now that's a lot of money.
Which brings us to the question: What do moms really want?
According to an Ebates.com survey, here are the top four requests:
- Spa Day: 48 percent
- Flowers: 38 percent
- Jewelry: 36 percent
- Smartphone or Tablet: 30 percent
But, says World Vision, nearly two out of three moms would ultimately prefer a meaningful gift rather than a traditional one.
