PLANO, Texas, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This Mother's Day, give the mom in your life exactly what she's looking for – "me time." According to a national poll sponsored by Stacy's Snacks, 71 percent of moms with children living at home say they would appreciate some alone time on Mother's Day. Nearly all moms – 9 out of 10 (91 percent) - say they would also appreciate a snack her family cooked or prepared just for her.
"Our poll shows mom wants a Mother's Day balanced with 'me time' activities and family fun," said Katie Ceclan, senior director of marketing, Stacy's Snacks. "Stacy's is a champion for life's simple-yet-inspired moments from a gourmet breakfast in bed to a thoughtfully prepared snack using mom's favorite foods."
When it comes to great gifts, mothers say they would like a fun family outing where she's treated like a queen (51 percent) and a handwritten note expressing the family's love and appreciation (42 percent).
When mothers were asked how they would most like to spend their Mother's Day "me time," they chose a spa treatment (38 percent), watching a favorite movie or TV show (21 percent), catching up on a favorite book or magazine (19 percent), enjoying breakfast in bed (14 percent) or a relaxing picnic lunch (12 percent).
"Why choose one when you can give mom all that she wants?" said Ceclan. "We recommend kicking off her special day with breakfast in bed: A serving tray adorned with hot coffee, fresh fruit and a snack like our cinnamon roll stackers."
The stackers, a recipe from chef Douglas Keane, winner of the James Beard Award and Top Chef Masters, features a delectable combination of toasted pecans, cream cheese, powdered sugar and Stacy's Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips.
If a family brunch is already in the works, create an opportunity for "me time" in the afternoon with a gourmet snack. Fill a picnic basket with ready-to-eat treats like Stacy's Toasted Cheddar Pita Chips, Sabra hummus, aged cheddar, salami, apple slices and her favorite wine. Include a blanket and some magazines to help make the most of her "me time," whether it takes place in the backyard or a beautiful nearby park.
