The sun is out, temperatures are rising, flowers are blooming and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. As a result, online shopping site and ecommerce platform, PriceGrabber released results of its 2014 Mother’s Day Shopping Survey, revealing how families will celebrate mothers this year.
 
The survey discovered 60% of consumers will purchase their Mother’s Day gifts online, with 50% who said they will shop from their computer and 10% who will purchase from a mobile device (smart phone or tablet). Brick-and-mortar retailers will continue to see traffic as 40% of Mother’s Day shoppers indicated they will purchase their gifts in-store.
 
No matter what the holiday, shoppers are always on the hunt for a great deal. When consumers were asked how much they plan to spend on Mother’s Day, 26% said they would spend $50-$99. Twenty percent will try to find the perfect gift for $100-$249, and 19% will spend $25 -$49.
