Think you know what Mom wants for Mother’s Day? The answer might surprise you!


What Moms want for Mother’s Day is often a topic of debate. Some say flowers, and some say jewelry, so is it any surprise that Moms are stating otherwise? Ebates recently polled over 2200 adults and asked them to list what they thought Moms wanted this Mother’s Day.

According to our poll, women said the number one choice for Moms was a day at the spa, while men ranked flowers as Mom’s favorite gift. In addition to a spa day, Moms also want the latest tech gear, with a whopping 30% asking for a tablet or smartphone. We were surprised men and women would answer so differently, but we weren’t alone. Who else was surprised by our findings? Try CNET, Huffington Post, and Forbes.

Because we are all about celebrating Mom, we’re giving her what she really wants – a day at the spa! Leave a comment below telling us What you want for Mother’s Day, and you’ll be entered to win a fabulous day at the spa. On us!

*Spa day equal to $500 Gift Certificate to Spa Finder, or cash. Must be 18 or older to enter.

Last Chance for Mother's Day!

    It’s the truth about my life, my two adult son’s are very selfish and has never ever given me a Mother’s Day card or even acknowledge me on Mother’s Day. Even when they were young. I will be turning 58 on the 16th of this month and neither will I recieve a Birthday card. Christmas is out of the question. I would of never ever thought that they would treat me this way, but they did. This makes me very sad and alone.

    My husband has been unemployed for almost 3 years and just found a job! We have been married for 34 years and he just said “can we fit a present in our budget”. I said let’s pass. I am so use to being frugal that having a night in with him, a movie and a glass of wine would be perfect. Now I just need to find a night off!
