Did you know Moms really want Mothers’ Day relaxation and help from their family? I have been a Mom for twenty-one years. My kids are 16 and 21, and I have been receiving Mother’s Day gifts for quite some time. Some have been amazing and some have been less than stellar.  Maybe you think Mom really wants a dozen roses and a diamond necklace? You would be 100% wrong.

Did you know that Mother’s Day has been celebrated in the United States since the early 20th century? What do you think the most popular Mother’s Day gift has been? Just imagine, you walk downstairs in the morning, half awake, and stumble to the coffee pot.  As you open the cupboard for your coffee cup, your eyes are drawn to an empty dish drainer and sparkling sink.

Moms really want a clean home

Next, you turn toward the coffee pot and notice that your counters are completely clean.  And, there are no sticky fingerprints to be found.  Your floors are free of the cat hair and muddy footprints you normally see. Now, you’re fairly certain that you must be in the wrong house. I know moms really want Mothers’ Day help with the housework!

Your Mom wants breakfast

As you turn around, you notice that the kids have cleared the table and made you breakfast. There’s a fresh fruit salad, a slice of cranberry cinnamon bread, and a steaming cup of your favorite French press coffee waiting for you. They let you know that they’ve ordered dinner from a meal delivery service (save $10 on your first order here) so you won’t have to cook that night (or clean up). However, these overnight oats are easy and delicious. And, they’ll let mom relax on Mothers Day.

Mom wants free time

Of course, your amazing Mothers’ Day doesn’t stop here. Your husband informs you that he’s taking the kids out for the day to go geocaching. You have the entire day to catch up on all of those book club books you wanted to read. Or, maybe you’ll take a long bubble bath and pamper yourself with one of my homemade tub teas. Moms really want Mothers’ Day relaxation and free time.

I honestly don’t know what I would do if I came downstairs and saw that the house was completely clean. I am not even sure my house has ever been completely clean. As soon as I get one room clean, I need to deal with a mess in another room. I would certainly love more help from my family with the housework because that moms really want Mothers’ Day help from their family.

Mother’s Day facts

So, Scotch-Brite conducted a survey that showed seventy-five percent (75%) of moms would prefer a clean home on Mother’s Day to being served breakfast in bed. In addition, sixty percent (60%) of moms would most prefer a clean house over other gift options like candy, flowers and a card. Moms really want Mothers’ Day relaxation.

So, why not grab your favorite Scotch-Brite products and treat mom to a perfectly clean home this Mothers’ Day. Or, at least put in a few hours of work to make things shine. I’m sure that she would appreciate a quiet cup of coffee and some time to herself a lot more than she would another t-shirt or decoration to dust around.

So, Moms really want Mothers’ Day relaxation and help, don’t you agree?

    We don't want breakfast in bed because we know we have to do the dishes afterwards!
  2. I agree! I totally want a clean house for Mother's Day. My son thinks that I want Legos though. lol.
  3. i would weep if i came down and things were ALL done.  and then i would dance and sing and maybe make a big mess! LOL
  4. Agreed! Who needs diamonds and fancy spa treatments when my house needs so much work?
  5. Angela S says
    I am so with you on this. I have been a Mom for quite a few years myself and waking up to a sparkling clean house would be a dream.
  6. A clean house is probably one of my biggest wishes! I would love it if my kids and husband cleaned the house for mother's day. Sadly, I doubt it will happen. :(
  7. CrazyMom a/k/a Melanie says
    hahahah I sooo wish for a clean house.. my hubby does clean, BUT you know mom's clean different, we clean on top and behind the fridge and all those little places no one really looks..So wish I could get a deep cleaned house and I can sit on the couch and relax..
    • Ellen Christian says
      No they definitely don't clean like we do. Mine doesn't clean much at all but sometimes I get lucky.
  8. Um, yes!!! Yes, yes, yes! I totally want to hide in my room (or maybe the tub) while the house magically gets cleaned for me!! 
  9. Could the person that cleaned my house do the laundry too or is that being greedy :)
  10. Keikilani says
    I would totally appreciate a clean house! Especially someone that would clean my windows and blinds. I let the sunlight in and saw all the dust today! Yuck!
  11. Mama to 5 BLessings says
    Love 3M products but I would like for someone to come clean my home for me using these products! LOL!
  12. Amy Desrosiers says
    I told my husband, getting a day off from cleaning is like the BEST Mother's Day gift ever!
  13. I absolutely would prefer a clean - a really clean - house over anything else for Mother's Day! I'd even settle for a gift certificate for a maid service!
  14. I totally, totally agree... I would like to sleep in, wake to breakfast in bed, come out about 3pm and NOT find the house a wreck from my staying in my room watching Netflix all day. HA
  15. Michele Brosius says
    Most moms I know would definitely take a clean house for a Mother's Day gift! When someone asks me what I want for a gift, I usually say "a maid". 
  16. Jennifer Soltys says
    A clean house would make the most perfect gift! I would just love that gift basket!! I love practical gifts!!
  17. Amber Edwards says
    Oh goodness, my house is completely torn apart as we are packing for our move. A clean house for mother's day? Well that would be a dream come true! I'm so tired of my messed up house. 
  18. Nancy @ Whispered Inspirations says
    I definitely want the Gift of Clean, having new and useful products to clean with gives me that extra push to get to cleaning!
  19. Liz Mays says
    I would definitely love a clean house for Mother's Day. It's getting ridiculous how little time I have to keep it tidy!~
  20. That would be divine~ And maybe wash the windows too~
  21. Kayla @ TheEclecticElement says
    My mom would be the first to 110% agree with you! She's always wishing and hoping for a clean house whenever a birthday or holiday rounds the corner. I try to help the best I can but it's true that a wife and mother's job is never done!
  22. What a lovely read! Moms really want Mothers’ Day relaxation and help. you nailed it. My 2 boys are still small but the mess they can create in an instant is big lol. I am sooo happy when grandpa takes them for a walk (they are 2 and 5) and I have 2-3 hours for myself. Even if that means doing a bit of cleaning or cooking or work related stuff. I can do it in peace and quiet lol.
