Mother’s Day is May 8, which means it is only a matter of time before you’re scrambling to find that last-minute gift or seeking a good enough card in an entirely picked-over greeting card aisle.
We have been celebrating Mother’s Day for over 102 years, since it became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. In all that time, we as a society have concluded that the very best gifts for the most influential women in our lives on their special day are greeting cards and flowers. This year, DealsPlus.com, an online community of bargain hunters, did some digging of their own to help us all make better Mother’s Day gift-giving decisions. Their resource concluded with some interesting stats about how people are planning to shop for their Mother’s Day gifts, how much they will typically spend, and most importantly, what moms really want.
The following Mother’s Day infographic is DealPlus.com’s step-by-step resource to going beyond greeting cards and flowers and really impressing the most important women in your life on Mother’s Day.
