And there's not a scented lotion in the bunch

AUSTIN, Texas, May 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mother's Day is around the corner, and many shoppers are likely stumped on what to get their favorite lady. And that's no surprise. Moms did raise us, teach us morals and survive our teen angst years—is there even a gift suitable for such a strong woman?

Mother's Day is just around the corner. How much are gift givers going to spend? How does their spending measure up to Father's Day? And what on earth do Mom's really want?

But even if consumers are feeling clueless toward a Mother's Day gift, they still plan to buy one. In fact, according to a recent RetailMeNot survey, 76 percent of shoppers plan to buy gifts this year for Mom, compared to 70 percent in 2017.
