I came across a site giving the statistics about the purcahses of people during Mothers day. Men Spend More Than Women on MotherÃ¢ÂÂs Day. A I wanted to share with flower loving community, here are the excepts....
While 52 percent of all respondents said they plan to purchase MotherÃ¢ÂÂs Day gifts this year, significantly more men (59 percent) than women (46 percent) will do so. The Discover Card survey revealed additional trends on whoÃ¢ÂÂs spending what on whom:
- Of those who plan to purchase a MotherÃ¢ÂÂs Day gift this year, the average amount men and women plan to spend on their mothers is $66.50, an increase of over seven percent from last year.
- Men plan to slightly outspend women on their mothers this year. Of those who plan to purchase a MotherÃ¢ÂÂs Day gift this year, the average amount men will spend is $73.80 while the average amount women is $58.40.
- Of those men who plan to purchase a MotherÃ¢ÂÂs Day gift for their wives this year, the average amount they will spend is $90.70 and only $50.10 for their mothers-in-law.
- The majority of respondents (71 percent) said that they tend to spend more on MotherÃ¢ÂÂs Day than FatherÃ¢ÂÂs Day. Forty-eight percent of respondents said it was more challenging to shop for MotherÃ¢ÂÂs Day gifts than it is for FatherÃ¢ÂÂs Day gifts while 37 percent said the opposite.
Of course, when asked how much would be an appropriate amount to spend on a MotherÃ¢ÂÂs Day gift, half of the mothers surveyed (50 percent) said no money at all, citing that the best gift would be hand-made gift or a thoughtful gesture from the heart. Thirty-seven percent said less than $50.00 while 10 percent said $50.00 or more.
