I think people are getting back to basics, and that's a good thing. Mothers Day to me is a more "traditional" holiday if you will. Tech gifts might have been more appropriate for Christmas or birthdays is my guess.

Plan on giving a tablet, smartphone or other tech device on Mother's Day? Consider yourself in the minority.

A survey from online shopping site PriceGrabber finds only 13% of consumers said they would buy a tech-related item as a gift for Mother's Day.
