Mothers Day is Sunday and while some of us know our mother's really well there are some people that have no idea what to get their mom's for Mothers Day. If that's the case the safe move is to get her flowers right? The question becomes what kind of flowers? Are roses the move or is that more of a romantic Valentines day approach? The good news here is that a recent survey of 700 moms across the U.S. about what they want most for Mother’s Day in terms of flowers, gifts, and experiences was just done and this provides insight for all of us that basically have no clue where to start.

The study reveals that the top flowers over the last 5 years are:

Roses, Gardenias, Cyclamen, Poppies, Peonies, Crocus, Geraniums, Lilies, Dahlias, Tulips, Carnations, Amaryllis and Begonias.

As far as Idaho Mom's are concerned their top pick for Mother' day is Geraniums. The other question that comes to mind is how much should you spend and when it comes to gifts are store bought better than sentimental home made gifts? The survey answers these questions below:

  • Moms appreciate store-bought gifts more than homemade gifts, and the average American spends around $70 on presents for mom.
  • The most sought-after gift from moms was a gift of flowers and plants, while the most sought-after Mother’s Day experience was a night out with dinner and a movie.

Happy Mother's Day to you and yours and I hope you get the flowers you love.
