ATLANTA, May 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Mother's Day may no longer be about recognizing just one mother. A recent survey conducted by Edible Arrangements® found that 44% of Americans ages 18 to 54 have three or more mother figures in their lives, and one in five (20%) have a whopping five or more. Of the "other mother" figures, friends (36%), grandmothers (22%) and mothers-in-law (22%) are the top women they look to the most. Given how many "other mothers" people identify and in honor of the important roles they play, Edible® is offering Buy 2 Get 1 Free box and arrangement deals for Mother's Day.
The survey also revealed that while millennials consider their mother to be their primary mother figure (87%), they are more likely to have more "other mothers" than older generations. Nearly one in two millennials have three or more mother figures, including both relatives (grandmother (26%), aunt (23%) and mother-in-law (20%)) and non-relatives, with friends (36%), work colleagues (15%), mentors (14%) and teachers (15%) as part of their mix.
Regarding women specifically, the survey found that not only do they have multiple mother figures in their lives, but one in three (32%) also consider themselves mother figures to three or more people, not including their own children. They also acknowledge that they are always or almost always recognized on Mother's Day by someone other than their own child.
