Wednesday Trivia: Mother’s Day Gift Giving

pink present

Have you figured out what you’re going to give your mother on Sunday? If you’re looking for ideas, here’s a little market research to steer you in the right direction. According to a recent survey by coupon website, 43 percent of moms would like to receive something homemade on Mother’s Day. Not up for a last-minute craft project? We understand.  Jewelry is your next best best (27 percent of moms said they want it). And if you’re choosing between flowers and chocolates, go with flowers. They garnered 18 percent of moms’ votes, while sweets nabbed a mere 12 percent.

To put together a meaningful bouquet (instead of whatever grabs your eye at the supermarket), consider asking the florist to include ranunculus (they mean “radiant with charm”),  red tulips (“declaration of love”), and lilies (which connote “magesty). Top it all off with ferns for sincerity, and baby’s breath, for everlasting love. And don’t forget a nice card! (Snag one of these lovely poems or quotes to add meaning.)

    Nice tips! Daddy is taking mommy and nana out for dinner at a steak place. Sounds like fun to me! XOXO – Bacon

    I always think a potted plant is better than flowers as it (hopefully!) lasts longer. Agree with PigLove, a meal out is good too!

    Thanks for the tips! I think my mom will be getting flowers (hope she’s in the 18%) and a trip to the nail salon!

    My mom is a fashionista and loves to be pretty. She loves Red Lipstick. I’ve bought her some MAC, Chanel, YSL and some a few others. I ran across a website that has a FAB range of makeup. I might get her one from them. They have like 15 different tones of Red Lipstick!!
