Attention! A Mother’s Day survey was conducted. Science happened! We understand finding gifts for special people in your life can be difficult. Especially if they don the title “Mom.” You are not alone. 47% of you told us that finding the right gift is the top challenge…so much so that more than half of you wait until one week before Mother’s Day to shop.

Here are some of the other fun facts you told us…

  • In addition to flowers, shoppers typically give their moms brunch or dinner outing (44%), spa or salon service (30%), jewelry and accessories (28%), or family activity (21%).
  • 55% of people buy traditional gifts such as flowers and greeting cards. Why mess with the classics?
  • But virtually everyone (95%) said they plan to purchase something else to supplement the traditional gift.
