We all love our mothers and the mothers in our lives. Admittedly, my gift buying prowess leaves quite a bit to be desired. It's not that I don't care or that I'm not attentive to what my wife likes, I'm just horrible at shopping for people. If only there was a survey done explaining what moms in Louisiana say they really want for Mother's Day, I could do a better job. Oh, wait...there is such a survey, and here it is! You're welcome.

Influenster, a product review company, asked roughly 4,600 young American moms, average age 32 years old, what they really want for Mother's Day this year. The women that took the survey were allowed to choose from among 23 categories of gifts, from jewelry to electronics.

The overwhelming majority of the moms said they want to be pampered for Mother's Day. Things like a spa day, beauty gifts, anything to help the relax for awhile.

So, what did Louisiana moms say they want?

Louisiana moms said they would simply like a kind gesture. Does this mean that even when I've bought horrible gifts I've stayed in good standing because I at least tried?

From all of us here at 97.3 The Dawg, happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
