what does mom really want

usually on fridays i write on an alzheimers disease topic
folks who read my blog for alzheimers information know they can read it on fridays and get information about alzheimers disease

but since this sunday is mothers day
i thought i would do a short and to the point blog on mothers day

heres what folks are buying moms

55% will buy mom flowers
29% will buy mom beauty products
80% will buy mom a present
20% wont buy mom a present

the topic
what does your mom really want for mothers day
heres a list from this article
ranked by importance to moms

41% want a day with their families
35% want a nice dinner
26% want flowers
25% want a gift card
17% want a nice card
16% want chocolate
10% want a vacation
10% want clothes
9% want a day to themselves
7% want breakfast in bed
4% want alcohol

so look closely at this list if you havent bought them a gift sometimes what they really want doesnt necessarily require buying them a gift but i must say a gift would be nice

i thought of what my wife shes mothers day weekend might look like

a day with her family
a nice dinner defined by where and what she wants to eat
she gets regular flowers from me from the garden
just this week i filled up her flower vase with calendula and california poppies and borage and multicolor sweet peas for a colorful arrangement
she will get several cards
she might get gift cards
she is not a clothes person
she will get her morning tea and her iphone in bed that morning
i wont see her for two hours after that
she will im sure consume some wine for the evening meal of her choice
she will get a day to herself on saturday maybe
thats usually our farmers market morning and our slug out day and her thrift shop day
it will be her choice

look at that list
be sure and give her what she really wants
it may not be chocolate
