Who doesn't struggle to find the perfect gift for their mother each Mother's Day?
Imagine how much harder it gets when you not only have to find an original gift for your mum but also for the mother of your children too?
Whether your safe bet is a bunch of flowers, a box of chocolates or a bottle of their favourite perfume, it is very easy to get stuck in your ways and become rather predictable in the present buying game.
Plus, doesn't she deserve something a bit special for all those years of raising you or your kiddies?
Before you go out and buy the generic red roses and box of chocolates, take a look at the following stats.
During an 18 year period, a mother typically spends:
8,212 hours cooking
5,867 hours washing
15,834 hours child minding
Mother's Day stats
£27.37 is the average amount spent on Mother's Day
An average of 20% of mums with receive nothing on Mother's Day
More than ⅓ of Brits say their mum is the most inspirational person in their life
Based on the above realities, consider thinking outside of the box.
Maybe it doesn't need to be a present but just going the extra mile for them by planning a day out or spending a bit of quality time together.
It doesn't have to be expensive or extraordinary, just thoughtful and well planned.
