survey suggests it may be time to consider being less predictable this Mother's Day

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2013

Many sons and daughters won’t be giving Mom what they want this Mother’s Day, according to a new survey by CreditDonkey.com, a credit card comparison website.

The survey reveals the differences in buying habits by sons and daughters and expectations by moms this Mother's Day. It found that nearly 1 in 4 son respondents plan to spend more this year on Mother's Day, while nearly 1 in 4 daughter respondents plan to spend less than they did last year.

Regardless of gender, most respondents plan to spend at least the same or more this May holiday (May 12, 2013) as they did in 2012.

What Mom Wants

The CreditDonkey.com survey found a disconnect: Many don't give mom what they want.

"While most sons and daughters plan to stick to tradition and give flowers, dinner and a greeting card – our survey suggests it may be time to consider being less predictable this Mother's Day," says Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com.

Among the findings:

  •     More than anything, moms want to receive something homemade (36%). However, less than 1 in 5 respondents plans to make something for their mom.
  •     More sons than daughters want to give electronics, yet only 3% of moms in the survey want to receive such items.
  •     Nearly 1 in 4 moms want to receive a gift card. But less than 16% of daughters in the survey plan to give gift cards.
