With only a few days left before Mother’s Day this Sunday May 13, 2012, last minute shoppers are searching the internet in ever growing numbers to find mothers day gift ideas. For over a week now, searches for Mother’s Day gift ideas has been among the top 20 Google searches fairly consistently.
In an earlier Mother’s Day article (read it here) we took a look at some survey results which revealed what a lot of mothers said that they really like for gifts on Mothers Day. Among the top gifts identified in the survey of Moms were items like a massage or manicure gift certificate or some other type of pampering.
While flowers and the like are typical gifts for mom, it was not something which mothers surveyed indicated as the type of gift they preferred. Most items centered around relaxation and time with family. Some good ideas for Mothers Day gifts identified included going out to a family brunch or a trip to places like a zoo with the kids.
