Mums want a weekend away, not flowers

8th March 2010 Print

Ryanair has reported that 90% of mothers see Mother’s Day flowers as a waste of money and would prefer a (naughty) weekend away from the kids. 

In a survey of 1,000 mothers, 55% said they would prefer a weekend break while just one in ten said they would be happy with flowers on Mother’s Day.
Ryanair’s survey asked 'What would you like to get this Mother’s Day’:
55% said a voucher for a (naughty) weekend away from the kids
20% said a Mother’s Day meal in a restaurant
15% said chocolates
10% said flowers
Ryanair’s Mother’s Day Gift Vouchers are available for purchase on right up to midnight Mother’s Day (14th March).  Vouchers begin at just £25 and can be redeemed online to provide that well deserved break away from the kids.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said,
“Ryanair asked 1,000 mothers what makes a great Mother’s Day gift and over half said a naughty weekend away from the kids was better than flowers, chocolates or dinner in a packed restaurant on Mother’s Day. 
“Ryanair gift vouchers start at just £25 and can be redeemed against travel on over 1,000 routes – perfect for that weekend away from the kids.  Now all dads have to hope is that the mums invite them to go!”
