While you'll no doubt find lots of fantastic gifts for your Montana Mom, have you ever wondered to yourself "What does Mom want?" We decided to propose that very question and let's just say we didn't get the answers that we thought we would.

What do Montana Moms want for Mother's Day?

First, the folks over at Solitare Bliss decided to poll moms in all 50 states and it seems that what Mom wants is some alone time.  The top 3 answers were:

  • Watching TV and Movies
  • Taking a nap
  • Personal care

This seems to align with what local moms said they wanted when we asked. More than one local mom stated that they would like a "hotel room" for Mother's Day so they could get away from everyone and have some time to themselves.

What doesn't Mom want for Mother's Day?

According to the national poll when it comes to gifts that aren't popular with moms include:

  • Going out to eat
  • Shopping

So, if you were planning on making reservations this Sunday and hadn't done it yet, you just might be in luck after all. Maybe this year you can give mom a day by herself, with a subscription to Netflix and a gift certificate for a spa day. Who knows, you might become her favorite after all.
