Moms Don’t Come First On Mother’s Day

Cards buyers look over Mother's day cards
Chris Hondros, Newsmakers

Having lost my Mother several weeks ago, my wish is that all Moms have a wonderful Mother’s Day.  According to a recent study by The Mom Complex, 40% of American mothers feel their husband and children come first on Mother’s Day – the one day of the year most would agree they should come first. A staggering 12% of moms don’t feel they even make the list on Mother’s Day. And while moms spend an average of 400% more time taking care of the kids than their husbands, according to Newsweek, 30% said they were honored for no more than 5-10 minutes on Mother’s Day, The Mom Complex study found. Think you’ve got the perfect gift for Mom? Think again. The survey also found that moms long for time off from mom duties, time off from housework and appreciate the time it takes to create a homemade gift or card:

  • 57% of moms want time off or away from day-to-day life (time to themselves, pampering, break from housework) while only 12% received this last year.
  • 42% of moms want handmade or homemade gestures (handwritten letter, homemade gift or meal) while only 28% received this type of gift last year.
