With mother’s day around the corner, it’s time to focus on that one special person who always seems to put everyone’s interest first as summarized in these words by Tenneva Jordan, “A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.”
What does she really want for Mother’s Day and how can you make this day truly memorable for her?
Plum District (www.plumdistrict.com), a site for moms, by moms, recently released its findings of a survey carried out of over 1 million mom subscribers across the United States on what Mom really wants on Mother’s Day.
They found that:
“Some of the things we discovered in our survey were pretty surprising to us, like the fact that only 56 percent of husbands/significant others always remember Mother’s Day,” says Megan Gardner, CEO of Plum District. “What didn’t surprise us is that at the end of the day, moms might crave some ‘me’ time, but their families will always rank first.”
What sort of “me” time is Mom after? According to the survey, eight out of ten moms would choose to sleep in versus a sunrise breakfast with the kids; One third of moms secretly want the day to themselves; 52 percent would use an hour to themselves for a massage, while the other 48 percent would go on a bike ride.
While not all moms are created the same, mother’s day is all about love and appreciation. We put together a few gift-hunting ideas for you for this special season:
Every mother is different, knowing what she enjoys and likes should be the main guide for this mother’s day in the celebration and appreciation of her role. The perfect gift for her is simply your love. It is priceless.
