The Top Ten Most Popular Mother's Day Gifts in the UK:
Cas Paton, founder and CEO of OnBuy.com said,
"Mothering Sunday offers a welcome reminder to show gratitude to mothers or grandmothers, and for many has turned into a day full of gifts and families coming together. As a UK-founded global marketplace, we were interested to find out how the buying habits of children differs across the UK, and what items are the most popular gifts.
"I'm sure the list of most 'spoiled' mums in the UK will be divisive, and want to point out that it is based on averages, so I hope no one gets too offended! I can't say I was that surprised at the most popular gifts list either, I know I've bought my Mum a good few bottles of perfumes and numerous chocolates over the years. Regardless of how much money you spend, the most important thing is to make your mother feel loved and appreciated come the 22nd of March."
