TORONTO, April 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Family time and a handmade Mother's Day card? Those are nice, say Canadian moms, but not their top choice for Mother's Day gifts. Ebates.ca, Canada's leading cash back shopping site, surveyed moms to find out what they really want for Mother's Day, versus what they usually get, and the research revealed some interesting contrasts.
Nearly half of moms (48%) chose a day at the spa as their top choice for Mother's Day gifts, followed by a weekend away (45%) and jewellery (31%). Instead, what mom typically receives are flowers (40%) with gift cards (15%) and handmade gifts (14%) a distant second and third.
"We want moms to get what they really want for Mother's Day," says Adrienne Down Coulson, General Manager, Ebates Canada, and a mom of two. "We used our research findings to create a Mother's Day Gift Guide filled with gift ideas and shopping tips to maximize your budget."
