ALL ABOUT MOM:

- The Hawk & Tom Show

May 9, 2019


Most of us think of our mom as JUST a mom....but how much do you know about her life before she had you?  And do you even WANT to know?

We found out that 89% of people said they think they know "a great deal" about their mom's life. 

Here are the top five mom facts we're familiar with:

1.  Where she grew up  - 74% of people know the answer to that one.
2.  Where she went to high school or college  - 60%.
3.  The name of the street she grew up on - 50%.
4.  What her first job was - 49%.
5.  Her ancestry - 48%.


The poll also asked people to name the top TRAITS they got from their mom.

The top five answers were:  her compassion . . . her sensitivity . . . her work ethic . . . her sense of humor . . . and her good looks

One thing that most don't know is....what moms REALLY want for Mother's Day.

- A survey by YouGov.com found the top ten things moms want this year are:   Flowers . . . a spa day . . . a card . . . a day to themselves . . . something sentimental . . . a day with no chores . . . jewelry . . . something homemade . . . candy . . . and clothes.  (Only 1% of women in the survey said electronics are the #1 thing they want.)


- The second survey by Groupon found the top things moms want are:
 A nice meal at a restaurant . . .  flowers . . . a card . . . something their child made them . . . something sentimental . . . perfume . . . jewelry . . . clothes . . . a massage . . . and a spa package.  (So a spa day, jewelry, and clothes also made both lists.)


The first survey also looked at WHO we're giving presents to:  - 65% of adults plan to give at least one woman in their life a gift this year

Most will buy something for Mom - Wife or Partner is next - then Mother-in-Law - Sister - Grandmother - a Friend - and another relative like an Aunt.
