What Mom Really Wants for Mother’s Day

We love our moms, but they can be hard to buy for. Polls show they don’t really want fitness products, beauty products, perfume, any cleaning appliance, most cooking appliances, puppies, clothes, classes, mugs, or plants.

Damn… and I had just finished an awesome hand-crafted travel mug for her take to the gym. It doubled as a plant holder.

Well, there is hope. 52% of moms prefer wine to all other libations. So, getting mom something she’ll really love this Mother’s Day is actually quite easy.

For this Mother’s Day, Drync spoke with top sommeliers and wine educators to compile two collections of wines that would make the perfect gift. A Dozen Rosés and Box of Flowers!

All are available to purchase under “lists” in the Drync Direct  app, so secure yourself as her “favorite child”… at least until next year.
