A recent survey has found that moms just want a BREAK for Mother's Day. Moms in 21 states want a NAP more than anything else . . . and the next most-popular response was: A meal they don't have to cook.
If you're still stumped on what to give mom for Mother's Day . . . don't overthink it. Being a mom is a tough job, and you can't just "clock-out." So maybe the best gift is giving her . . . A BREAK.
The website Time2Play.com surveyed over 1,000 moms with young kids, and asked them what they REALLY want. Then, they broke down the results by state.
The most popular answer was . . . A NAP. Moms in 21 states want a nap more than anything else. The second most popular answer was a MEAL that they don't have to cook. That was #1 in 18 states.
The third most popular answer was cleaning or help with chores. So moms don't want a new vacuum, they want someone TO vacuum.
Other responses include: A spa treatment, flowers, and a simple card. Basically thoughtfulness over extravagance . . . indulgence over an appliance . . . and a day off to rest and relax as a show of appreciation.
