The question comes up every year: What do I give Mom for Mother’s Day? I’ve given my Mom enough chocolate and bouquets of flowers to sufficiently squash any chance of either of those being a true surprise. While those are fine gifts and a staple for ‘safe’ Mother’s Day choices, I enjoy giving my Mom something we can experience together and create memories.
I know this will sound a little like a sales pitch, but honestly, StubHub is a great resource to use when trying to decide what to give Mom for Mother’s Day. Whether yours is a sports mom, stage mom or rock ‘n’ roll mom,StubHub can help you give her the ultimate Mother’s Day gift.
According to a survey for StubHub by Wakefield Research, nearly 2 out of every 5 moms (37 percent) did not have a “moms’ night out” in 2011. With this in mind, encourage your hardworking Mom to take a night off with her friends, or with you, by giving her a StubHub gift certificate. You choose the price and Mom chooses the event. You can easily purchase gift certificates online, print a regular hard-copy gift certificate or send a gift announcement letting your mom know you have purchased tickets to see her favorite hockey team or band! If you’re a last-minute shopper, don’t worry – StubHub reinvented the ticket space and boasts a FanProtect Guarantee, so tickets are guaranteed and often available until the very last minute before the event. In addition to a gift certificate, you may want to go a step further and consider purchasing tickets to a live event in your area over Mother’s Day weekend. Here are a few examples of awesome events happening that weekend:

Motherhood is really the only job that you work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for at least 18 years. StubHub says give mom the ultimate night out, and a gift she’ll always remember. For all the support, laundry and home-cooked meals, she deserves it!
