UNION CITY, Calif., April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Men and shopping: two things that just don't go together; even on Mother's Day. The male species seems to buy out of guilt: The diamond industry succeeded at convincing men they had to spend 3 months of salary to buy a worthy engagement ring. Now, the National Retail Federation says that males spend less than females on Mother's Days gifts (an average of $133 vs. $214, respectively) and a survey showed that half of men put more effort into a gift for their mother than for anyone else – including a wife or girlfriend. A luxury brand deal aggregator called Dealmoon.com, is making guilt-ridden men's lives easier by providing an easy shopping experience where recommendations are already made for him. Best of all, he can get a 20-80% discount on luxury brands; and have incredible selections sent directly to mom.
"Most guys have a general idea that their moms may like handbags, beauty products or jewelry," says co-founder, Jennifer Wang, "our editors have already made recommendations on all the best deals in those categories from the most storied and cherished luxury brands in the world; these are names that will thrill any woman."

- U.S. President Woodrow Wilson declared Mother's Day a national holiday in 1914.
