Mother’s day is around the corner and I’m sure that this time, like every year, we will all be racking our brains to come up with the perfect gift. After all, This gift is supposed to symbolize our love and gratitude for our mothers and show thanks for all the effort she has put in to make us who we are today. For most of us, no gift is ever good enough.
Some of us buy her flowers, or jewelry, or maybe even clothes. Though any gift is always going to be appreciated by mothers, I guess it’s time that we, as children, have to realize that she is going be happy with whatever we give, as long as she knows that its straight from the heart. But eventually, does her appreciation ultimately lead to our complacence?
This Mother’s Day, let’s take a step back and see what our mothers really want, what they really need. We at Pennyful have done just that!
In a recent survey we conducted, we saw a gap in what we usually choose to give our mothers, and what they really want. Among the usual gift ideas that are usually given during mother’s day, handbags and purses seem to be the most preferred option as 33% of the respondents claimed. This is followed by Apparel & Accessories (25%), Home Décor (22%), Jewelry (11%) and a day at the spa (9%).
But when we asked mothers what they would really like, the responses we got were strikingly different. Now I’m sure that most of you reading this right now have busy schedules, be it with work commitments or with studies. In fact, It is quite possible that some of you stay in an entirely different city from your parents. So think, how much time do we really spend with our parents in today’s day and age. And I mean quality time?
I can say from personal example – not enough. In fact our busy schedules have kept us so preoccupied that even when we are with them, our minds are away and our eyes are on our phones or laptops. So, when you really think about it, it is hardly a surprise that a majority of the mothers who responded to our survey said that for them, quality time with their children would be the perfect gift for this mother’s day.
So, let’s make a resolution, that this Sunday, we put away the ‘trivial’ portion of our lives and give thanks to the reason we are all here in the first place. Dedicate this Mother’s day to your mother the way it should be done – by giving her the gift of you. Sunday is still a few days away, so if your mother stays in a different city or town, go there and show her how much you care.
After looking at the results of our Mother’s Day survey, I know where I am going to be on Sunday.
