All Work and No Pay? Show Mom How Much She's Worth this Mother's Day
NexTag makes it easy to find just what Mom wants
San Mateo, CA, April 25, 2008 - Are moms underappreciated? According to Salary.com, if working moms were paid for their motherly duties, they would earn $85,939 in addition to their existing job salary. This figure was derived from the 10 job titles that Salary.com determined to best match a mother's workload: housekeeper, cook, teacher, laundry machine operator, van driver, facilities manager, janitor, computer operator, CEO and psychologist. Stay-at-home moms would earn even more due to the increased amount of hours and overtime worked, pushing their annual salary to six figures at $138,095*.
Of course, moms don't make any money from the amount of time and care they put into raising you. However, you could show your appreciation this Mother's Day with a gift that really wows Mom. Stumped for ideas? Let NexTag help you find the ideal Mother's Day present.
For the Overworked Mom: Help Mom relax and unwind with a spa gift set. For all her hard work, she deserves to soak her stress away in a soothing bath or indulge in luxurious scrubs, lotions, and body butters. Pamper Mom this Mother's Day.
For the Techie Mom: Hard drive camcorders are perfect for preserving Mother's Day memories. The small and handy Sony DCR-SR42 is as popular as ever; or for the professional filmmaker in Mom, go with the JVC Everio GZ-HD7 high definition camcorder. Don't forget a portable hard drive to store all those potential hours of videos. The Western Digital Passport hard drive can be easily slipped into a pocket or purse and comes in a variety of fun colors. And there's no better way to proudly display those memories than with a digital picture frame. Most of the latest models support video playback.
For the Fashionista Mom: Be sure Mom looks her best with a new addition to her wardrobe. Shop sun dresses, flowing skirts and more in a palette of summer's trendiest colors. And fun, designer pajamas are perfect for letting Mom lounge around in comfort without sacrificing style. No matter what you choose, moms are always in fashion.
For the Foodie Mom: Bring out the best in Mom's cooking with a new cookware set; non-stick stainless steel, titanium, copper - you can't go wrong.
