With Mother’s Day coming up, many of us are scrambling to make last minute arrangements for flowers, gifts, or reservations for a special lunch or dinner. But have you stopped to think about whether that’s what Mom really wants?
According to a IPG Mediabrands survey, 45% of Canadians said Mother’s Day is too commercial. Furthermore, 6 in 10 moms said what they want most on Mother’s Day is to spend time with their immediate family.
Mother’s Day is the second busiest gift-giving season of the year, and many Canadians may be relying on credit to purchase the perfect gift for their moms. While there’s nothing wrong with spoiling Mom with gifts every now and then, it’s important to include these purchases in your budget.
