Less Is More For Mom On Mother's Day (May 9)

Mom doesn't want you to spend too much on her Mother's Day (May 9) gift. In fact, flowers will do just fine.

REDMOND, Wash. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – There’s no need to break the bank on Mother’s Day (May 9) because to Mom, less is more.

According to a new survey by Bing.com, 54 percent of moms say they’d rather have “me time” on their special day rather than a sparkly, pricey trinket.

Still, more than half of moms think they deserve a little something for a job well done – but it doesn’t have to be expensive.

More than half said cards, chocolates, or flowers are appreciated and fall within their rule about not spending too much.

Moms also know what they DON’T want for Mother’s Day: Lingerie, home appliances, ongoing care of a new pet, and self-help books.

Another no-no is breakfast in bed, as moms with young kids realize the gesture just creates more clean-up work for them later.

For the perfect way to honor Mom, Bing Shopping offers a huge selection of gifts in all prices ranges. You can even earn cashback while shopping.
