A Mother's Day Gift Survey

A new OnePoll survey (commissioned by Groupon), 40% of us think our mom has FAKED a reaction to a Mother's Day gift, pretendeding to like something she really didn't like. The most common reaction to a bad gift is a simple "thank you."

The five most common fake reactions to a bad Mother's Day gift are saying:

  • "Thank you"
  • "Aww"
  • "I love it" 
  • "Wow, this is great"
  • "I really NEED one of these"

Here are four more stats from the survey:


1.  On average, we'll spend $75 on Mom this year and it seems middle children spend the most.

2.  Two-thirds of us check with our siblings to see what they're getting Mom before we buy a gift. Then about half of those folks try to ONE-UP them.

3.  The average person will write about 43 words in their Mother's Day card, which is like two or three sentences.

4.  A card IS important.  According to the survey, it's one of the top five things moms want to get this year.

The top five things they ACTUALLY want are something sentimental

  • Lunch or dinner with their kids
  • Something homemade
  • A vacation
  • And of course, a nice card

The takeaway of this survey? Don't skimp on your Momma.
