Facebook polled 1000 people on what they planned to buy for Mother's Day. The #1 gift is flowers, with jewelry and clothing coming in (tied) at a close 2nd.
Three Gifts You Should Never Purchase for a 'Mother's Day'
This Sunday is Mother's Day. Don't get caught flat-footed. Nor do you want to make a mortal mistake and get something that no mother really wants. Sure, when you were younger, she enjoyed your "macaroni art". But you've got to get more creative these days. Just avoid the following bad Mother's Day gifts:
House cleaning equipment. No matter what the price tag, there's nothing about a vacuum cleaner that says "I love you mom".
Kitchen appliances. No bread makers. No Cuisinarts or blenders. She already works hard enough. Don't guilt her into cooking even more.
Lotions and perfumes. This gift just screams that you slipped by the beauty counters in the mall and grabbed the first item you saw.
Fashionably Frugal: Texas is Voted the Business-Friendly Capital
According to a survey published at the website called "Chief Executive", the very worst state for business opportunities is California. Just don't tell Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook that. Nor the Hollywood studio that earned over $200 million in three days with "The Avengers". The very best state for business? That would be Texas, where Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban makes home.
Parents Are Happy in Life (At Least Happier Than Childless)
Based on data from almost 130,000 adults around the globe - including more than 52,000 parents - it seems that happiness doesn't drop so much after having children.
There once was a time when psychology studies revealed that parents felt miserable: They're less happy, more depressed, and have less-satisfying marriages. Though the results presented at the Population Association of America's annual meeting gave a different picture. When it comes to ranking happiness, married couples are at the top and singles without a soulmate are at the bottom. Somewhere in between are those parents struggling in the modern world to raise a family.
