Mother’s day is just a couple of weeks away, and gifts this year will add up to one of the most expensive years for Americans on record.

According to the National Retail Federation, $23.1 billion will be spent on mothers.

This includes more than $2 billion on flowers, $4.6 billion on jewelry, and almost $2 billion on spa days for mom. 

If you are still unsure of what to give mom on her special day, 29 percent say they would prefer an experience like tickets to a show, brunch, or a massage. 

2018 will be the second highest spending by Americans on Mother’s Day, just slightly behind last year.

And in case you need a reminder, Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13th.
