According to a recent Market Day survey conducted online among 500 moms, the best Mother’s Day gifts come from the heart. Homemade cards make a comeback!
There are signs that America is moving back to more traditional times and closer family relationships. As if to reflect this trend, when moms were asked what would make this Mother’s Day special, 46 percent said they would like to receive a card or gift made by their child, according to an online survey by Market Day. Twenty-four percent of moms would like breakfast in bed. This tasty recipe for stuffed French toast is one great way to get Mom that breakfast in bed!
One sentiment that most moms agree on is that the happiness surrounding Mother’s Day is not tied to economic considerations. When asked about their favorite Mother’s Day memories, 65 percent of moms indicated it was just having the family together, 31 percent enjoyed a homemade gift, and 14 percent recalled a favorite meal.
For the third year since Market Day fielded the survey, moms still do most of the cooking on their designated day. This year, 36 percent of moms will handle most of the cooking, and another 36 percent will get help in the kitchen from family members. Another 21 percent will receive assistance from a spouse or partner.
