What will you treat mommy-dearest to on her special day? Last year, the average American shelled out nearly $153* on gifts for Mother’s Day, making it one of the largest gift-giving holidays in the country. From flowers, to clothes and accessories, to spa treatments and of course the traditional Mother’s Day brunch, the estimated total spent on moms was $18.6 billion in 2012.* While we’re not promoting excessive spending, just take a moment to consider the impact that money could make if it were spent locally.
So, this Mother’s Day, show mom she taught you well and buy her a gift from a locally owned business, because we all know it’s the thought that counts! Try our Local Business Search to find local florists, gift shops, spas and restaurants near you.
