But when it comes to buying gifts for your mom, what’s the right amount to spend?
According to the National Retail Federation’s annual poll, Americans will spend about $19.9 billion on moms this year, averaging out to about $162.94 for each mom in the nation.
Believe it or not that’s about $6 less than the average from last year.
Greeting cards were the most popular choice accounting for more than 80 percent of gift purchases, with another two-thirds of Americans buying flowers. But only about one-third will dare try and pick out clothing for their mom.
Of course most want to get their moms out of the kitchen resulting in just fewer than $4 billion being spent on food.
