Quite a lot. In 2021, the National Retail Federation estimated that Americans will spend $28.1 billion on Mother’s Day. That includes cards, flowers, and dinner outings.
Kristin McGrath, shopping expert at RetailMeNot said that While mothers should be honored year-round, mother’s day is a chance to celebrate moms. It is a strong tradition of gifting and having a nice meal when it comes to Mother’s Day. It’s a chance to be both appreciative and celebratory. It’s not necessary to send a very expensive mother’s day gift for your mom, even a cute small gift can let your mom know how much you love her. Here, I strongly recommend that iWALK sparkly iPhone power bank is mother’s day cute small gift idea for your mom. A 4500mAh bling bling bling suuuuuuper mini power bank if you sent to her, and I bet she will love it. It’s perfect for the person that loves bling, your mom is absolutely going to love it!!

“It’s the official day on the calendar to honor moms’ contributions to their families and to society and to acknowledge the hard work and sacrifices they’ve made to raise their kids. Moms are even more deserving of celebration after multiple years of the pandemic and all the stress it’s placed on moms of school-age kids,” says McGrath.
And here’s a fun fact: Some of the most popular Mother’s Day flowers aren’t red roses, but in fact, callas, freesias, and gerbera daisies according to the Society of American Florists.
There are always some people who are allergic to flowers or don’t like something looks pompous. If your mother is allergic to flowers and you want to give her a simple and practical gift, then depend on which phone she uses you can buy a iWALK portable charger for iPhone or other phones for her. Instead of bling mini power bank, a cute power bank which have a matte look is a suitable gift.
Send a mini power bank to your mother. Let your mother know that she can get contact with you any time and you are always with her. It is a sweet Mother’s day cute small gift idea for your mom. A small power bank is very convenient for your mom when she is go shopping or hanging out with friends. If you have ever used a iWALK portable charger , you know how worth it is.
In addition to sending a power bank, I think a cervical spine massager is also a good gift. We all know that when parents get older, they often suffer from backache and back pain. Especially when parents are older, they should pay more attention to disease prevention. That’s what I suggest Mother’s day cute small gift.
Thanks All Mothers in the World! And Happy Mother's Day!
