Here's What Mom Really Wants This Mother's Day

Apr 30, 2013 -- 10:53am

I don't know about you but I struggle coming up with a creative gift year after year for Mother's Day. She's my best friend and I love her dearly which adds to the pressure. Not to mention her birthday is just weeks after Mother's Day so it's a double whammy this time of year. I'm already stressing about what to send. So I thought I'd help us all out...or at least try.

According to a new survey by a public relations agency called Child's Play Communications, nearly one in four moms got NOTHING for Mother's Day last year. 32% of moms just got a card and 21% got handmade crafts from their kids. And 3% got the day off while dad and the kids took care of chores.

Here's what moms want most for Mother's Day THIS year:

1. 15% want their kids to make them something (21% think that's what they're getting).

2. 14% want a day off (only 3% think they'll get it).

3. 13% want a spa gift certificate.

P.S. Mother's Day is on May 12th this year!
