Don’t forget Mother’s Day is this weekend, Sunday may 13th. How much will you spend?….

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


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.



According to a new survey, 53% of people think Mother’s Day is a Hallmark Holiday.

The survey also found the majority of people think Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and Halloween have been taken over by commercial interests.

So what holidays would we celebrate even if businesses weren’t PRESSURING us to?  Birthdays, Christmas, and wedding anniversaries are the big three.
