Here’s What Moms Really Want For Mother’s Day And What They Don’t Want

Moms across the country were surveyed to find out what makes the best Mother’s Day gift.  The moms were presented with a list of 15 common Mother’s Day gift ideas; they were asked to select the gifts that they’d be happy to receive.

 Let’s start with the best gift ideas.

 1. Dinner with the family

The number 1 gift you can give on Mother’s Day is dinner with the family. Over 35% of moms said they’d like to have dinner with the family on Mother’s Day.  Surprisingly, dinner beat out the more traditional Mother’s Day meals: brunch and even breakfast in bed.

2.  A clean house

Thirty-two percent of moms said they’d be happy if their family cleaned the house on Mother’s Day.

3.  A spa treatment

About 25% of mothers said they’d appreciate a spa treatment on Mother’s Day.

Now for the bad ones. Here are some gift ideas you want to stay away from.

2.  A scented candle

2.9% would like a scented candle for Mother’s Day.
