As an avid B&B traveler, I know that the gift of a B&B trip for Mother's Day would be something I'd really love. Yet, I suppose some might say I'm a bit biased, since I work with BedandBreakfast.com, the largest online B&B directory worldwide, and spend my days thinking about beautiful B&Bs. So, to learn whether other Moms want the gift of travel, in March BedandBreakfast.com sent a survey to people who've visited the site at some point in the last few years, and more than 5300 people responded. We asked respondents if they were a Mom celebrating Mother's Day, and then we asked those that were celebrating what they'd like most. According to moms across the USA, flowers and perfume are passé. A gift card for a B&B getaway tied with dinner out with the family as the top gift choices among Moms this Mother’s Day, trumping spa services, flowers, apparel, cards and perfume.
Nearly 25% of those responding said they preferred a gift card for B&B travel or dinner out with the family. Only 4.3% of respondents said they hoped for flowers on Mothers Day and less than 1% said they wished for perfume or flowers. Spa and beauty services came in as a second choice with 12% claiming they'd make a nice gift and just over 6% of Moms said they hoped they received cards on Mother's Day.
