When it comes to Mother’s Day we rack our brains trying to come up with original gifts, but a new survey of mothers proves that they like the “traditional” gifts. So if you have something original that you think she might like, go for it. But don’t hurt yourself trying to reinvent the wheel.

 Here are the top 5 things that mothers want for their big day in order of preference according to PR Newsire.

    Flowers

    You might think this is cliché and boring and you are right but 48% of those surveyed said it they are only going to get one gift, they would like it to be flowers.

    Dinner or Brunch

    43% of the mothers said they would like that as a gift. Now don’t take mom through the drive-thru at Taco Bell. She is looking to sit down with you and get waited on (for a change) at a nice restaurant.

    A gift card

    Women love to shop and you mother is a woman. 41% said a gift card would be great. That way they can get what they want in their size. And it makes it easy on you as long as you know where your mother likes to shop.

    Jewelry

    Again you mom is a woman, and all women love jewelry. 28% said they would like to get that as a gift.

    Beauty Products

    Believe it or not 27% of mothers said beauty products would make a great gift. I don’t know if I would do this or not. To me, it would be like giving a woman a vacuum cleaner for Christmas. But if that’s what your mom wants and won’t take it as you thinking she’s ugly, then maybe it would be ok.
