5 Extravagant Mother's Day Gifts She Actually Wants

When it comes to Mother's Day, it's the thought that counts. Right?

The average person is expected to spend $152.52 on gifts for mom this Sunday, according to the National Retail Federation. That adds up to over $18.6 billion -- up more than $2.3 billion from last year.

With expectations like that, a grocery-store greeting card just isn't going to cut it.

So what is it that moms really want? According to a survey from Ebates.com, it's not flowers. Surprised?

Nearly half (48%) of all moms who replied to the survey said that they wanted a day at a spa. Flowers (38%) and jewelry (36%) closely followed, and 30% of moms said they'd enjoy a tablet or smartphone.

However, two out of three moms agreed that they would ultimately prefer a meaningful gift over an expensive one. 

If money isn't an issue for you, consider pampering the special moms in your life with these luxurious treats.
