According to research company Mintel, in the UK sons spend more on their mothers on Mother’s Day than daughters.  Over 40% more!

(Men spend an average of 41.15 on Mother’s Day gift, whilst women send just 28.97.

Sons spend more on flowers for their mums than they do for their partners on Valentine’s Day.

The only catch to all this benficance is, they have to remember.  Only 57% of men remembered to buy a gift, compared with 62% of women. In addition 24% of men chose a present at the last minute, compared with just 18% of women.  Guys, if you are reading this now, if you hurry you might find a garage open.
