It's the question that gives sons and daughters sleepless nights every spring: what do mums want most on Mother's Day? Thankfully, a DotComGiftShop.Com survey of online shoppers has provided the answer - and it's quite a surprise: what mothers desire most on their special day is simply a hug!
Exactly half of the mums questioned for the survey said a cuddle was what they hoped for most as the annual reward for their maternal duties. Equally surprising was that the traditional Mother's Day present of a box of chocolates came bottom of the 'most wanted' list with a meagre 3% of votes, and the old 'default' gift of flowers only mustered 20%.
A close second to a hug in the popularity stakes was a personally chosen, unusual gift - something of a specialist area for DotComGiftShop.Com - favoured by 45% of those polled. Other high-scoring but inexpensive options were a card (40%) and lots of attention (34%).
The budget options scored highest across the board, as more mothers opted for the personal touch of a home-made dinner as their first choice of gift (26%) than the treat of a meal out at a restaurant (19%).
So it's clear from the DotComGiftShop.Com survey that it really is the thought that counts on Mother's Day - and that's no bad thing in these recessionary times. Fortunately for gift hunters, there are plenty of cheap Mother's Day gifts available at DotComGiftShop.Com. There are also hundreds of bargains - many under £10 - in the DotComGiftShop jewellery sale.
