HOUSTON - Mother's Day is just around the corner. But you might want to hold off on the perfume and candy this year. That's because a new study, conducted by researchers at Verizon Wireless, found that mom would rather have a smart phone or a tablet.
The survey results say 70% of mothers would prefer a new gadget over traditional gifts like flowers.
The problem is that only 26% of kids consider their moms "tech savvy," and only 11% percent of kids are planning on getting mom a tech gift.
Most kids probably spend more time with their face in their phones than asking mom what she wants for Mother's Day.
Moms already run the world. What's a little smartphone thrown in the mix? This Mother's Day, remember that you're shopping for a 21st century mom!
