Over one third of mothers surveyed want a weekend away from their children.

In a survey undertaken by leading kids shopping and savings portal 450 mothers were asked what their ideal gift would be this Valentine’s Day. Presented with seven options ranging from a simple card to jewellery over one third of the participants opted for a romantic weekend away.

Surprisingly, the three options that received the most requests all involved time away from the children. Following hot in the heels of a weekend away was a quiet dinner a deux and in third place was a day at a health and beauty spa.

Maybe they are still counting the Christmas calories but chocolates came in last place – receiving only 2% of the votes and jewellery received only 7%; flowers and a card came in almost equal with 11% and 12% respectively.

With today’s hectic lifestyle, working, doing the school run, kids clubs and the shopping women some time out so this Valentine’s Day a little quiet time with your partner will earn you major brownie points.
