Average Spend for Mothers Day Gifts

I find this hard to believe, but the Inside AdWords blog anticipates an average Mothers Day gift spend of $140. (Have you set May 13th in your Google Calendar?) The study they mention also indicates that 72.4% of that money spent for Mothers Day gifts will go towards flowers. Hmm, since I have a client who's an online florist, I thought I'd point you to some interesting Mothers Day flowers that are less than $140:

I like this one because you don't have to choose between Mothers Day flowers, plants or gift baskets. You get all three, a different gift delivered each month for three months. This is a clever idea that I don't believe the bigger online florists have copied, yet. ;-)

You can never go wrong with a flower basket. This one's less than half that average Mothers Day gift spend of $140. If you don't want to send flowers this year, consider a healthy gift (from a different client) with a little bit of chocolate:

Apart from the chocolate covered coffee beans, the other items feature dark organic chocolate, the "healthy" kind. I actually ate some Blue Loon Munch yesterday.

All right, I better stop with the gift ideas. I genuinely enjoy talking about my clients, particularly when they have innovative products or services to offer. At any rate, don't forget to send your mom something nice this year!

Hi all! My name is Olivia and I am an intern for a non-profit called One By One. We celebrate motherhood by working to end obstetric fistula, a devastating childbirth injury prevalent in the developing world that is caused by unrelieved obstructed labor. 90% of women who suffer from fistula have lost their unborn children and they leak urine continuously as a result of their injuries. As tragic as fistula is, it is treatable and preventable. The average cost of fistula repair surgery for one woman is $300, and every donation makes a difference. This Mother’s Day, One By One is offering an alternative gift idea —for the price of a bouquet of flowers you can drastically improve lives of mothers in the developing world. To make a tax-deductible donation in your mother’s name please visit www.fightfistula.org. Donations include an ecard sent to your mother telling her about your donation. One By One is all about real people supporting real mothers and their communities across the world from ours. This is a great, quick (or last minute) gift that really makes a difference! Thanks!
