Isn’t this a shocker?? Who would of thought that handmade and crafted presents are what make moms the happiest. Mother’s day presents are easier to accomplish than you think. The big department store’s try to hype the holiday up to get more sales. Well we aren’t buying it!

The poll showed that the second highest gift a mother would want on her special day is a day off alone! Mothers also need quiet time to themselves. Studies showed they would prefer a day off at the spa! That would be the one business to make a killing on this holiday and give back to the mothers.

Unfortunately, only about 20% of moms actually expect to get a mothers day present at all. A group of mothers reported that they would be lucky if their kids would just get along for the day. A day without fighting would be a gift enough for them. They even explained a day without the in-laws would be lovelier than receiving an unwanted gift.

Only a small percentage of mothers will actually receive a gift to their liking. The other mothers will most likely receive flowers, candy, or a store bought gift. While still some mothers will receive nothing at all on their dedicated day. Which, was shown to be the worst gift of all.

So, lets make this Mother’s day different and give the gift all mothers have been waiting for. The gift of time and relaxation. Show your mother you care by taking the time to create a gift made from your heart or giving her a gift of relaxation from responsibilities with a spa day. This Mother’s Day don’t buy into all of the department store gimmicks and get your mom something she truly wants and needs.
