Mother's Day: Celebrating Moms with Outdoor Displays of Affection

Posted by Jennifer Hurley on Apr 6, 2018 4:17:34 PM

This may come as a surprise, but men spend more money on their moms for Mother's Day than women. The so-called "Momma's Boy" is saying thanks with his wallet, as a survey from the National Retail Foundation showed men spent 30 percent more on their mothers than women did in 2017. Oddly, on Father’s Day, these statistics reversed and the women outspent the men.

Regardless of who's swiping their card at the register, Americans overall were estimated to have spent more than $23 billion on Mother's Day last year! The average spend for consumers was $186 each, with millennials averaging $252 each. Wow, millennials, wow.

Posted by Jennifer Hurley on Mar 19, 2018 5:41:21 PM

The telltale signs that spring is on its way are here, from budding trees to longer lit days to chocolate bunnies and Easter baskets that have begun to line local grocery aisles.

In addition to this high spend, consumers kept busy during Easter Sunday with the following activities:
