Spa Days and Outings Top Mother’s Day Wish Lists
BRISBANE, Calif. - Most moms would prefer to embark on a spa day or family outing instead of a vacation away from the kids, according to a survey by Shopping.com, the leading online comparison shopping site. In a similar survey conducted by the National Retail Federation (NRF) with BIGResearch, nearly 20 percent of shoppers plan to pamper their moms by giving them a certificate to a spa or beauty salon this year, up more than five percent from last year.
“Whether it’s for a unique or strictly practical item, online shopping is a great way for time-starved shoppers to find something special for any important occasion, especially Mother’s Day,” said Alisa Weiner, general manager of online comparison shopping for Shopping.com. “Being a busy working mother myself, I value our site’s easy-to-use features and tools that help me select the right gift at the right price.”
The Shopping.com survey also found that shoppers aren’t only looking to spend more money on mom this year…they plan to treat themselves too. In fact, a whopping 91 percent of respondents are willing to spend up to $75 to purchase a pair of designer jeans this spring. That’s even $25 more than they said they plan to spend on Mother’s Day.
