When is Mother's Day in 2023?

Since Mother's Day falls on the second Sunday of May every year, it will be celebrated on Sunday, May 14, 2023.

The number of searches began to increase in March, approximately five times that of the previous month, suggesting that some users are thinking about Mother’s Day two months before Mother's Day.

We also found that search volume was very high, with nearly one million people searching in April and May, the peak months for Mother’s Day searches.

In addition to "flowers," "sweets" and "practical" items are also popular

Next, we would like to explore recent trends by comparing the combination keywords in 2021 and 2022.
*The period from November 2020 to October 2021 is defined as "last year" and the period from November 2021 to October 2022 as "this year."

In addition to "carnations" and "flowers," which are typical Mother’s Day gifts, "potted plants," which are easy for first-time plant owners to manage and have a long life span, are also popular.

In addition, "sweets" and "candy," such as "cake," are also popular, as they can help people relax. Many users may be feeling stuck in a rut with gifting the regular gift of flowers, or they are interested in giving "practical" and "handmade" items.

The fact that "message" and "LINE" were ranked in the list suggests that they are also considering the what to write in their Mother’s Day messages to express their gratitude.

"Rakuten," "Aeon," "Takashimaya" and "Chateraise" were the most popular destinations for purchases.

While there was no major difference in keywords between 2022 and 2021, "60s" and "70s" were ranked in 2022. Some users were looking to find the best gifts that are well-suited for the older generations.

Period: November 2020 – October 2022
Devices: PC and smartphone

"Mother-in-law"

In the aforementioned age group of people searching "Mother's Day,” the composition of users in their 30s and 40s was high, but searches combining "Mother's Day" and "mother-in-law" are growing. Since these are not their own parents, it is possible that they are putting more careful consideration into selecting a gift, referring to rankings and word-of-mouth.

“Early bird discount”

It appears that a certain number of users want to order as early as possible and save money. The year-on-year growth suggests that Mother's Day sales are taking place earlier and earlier. It would be a good idea to promote "early bird specials" in February and March, when the searches peak.

"Preserved flowers"

Since they are fresh flowers that have been preserved, they do not require watering and can be enjoyed for a long time while maintaining its vivid colors. They seem to be an ideal gift for people who want to give the classic gift of flowers but also want to enjoy them for a long time or give flowers that are easier to manage.

"Hydrangeas"

Carnations are the classic flowers gifted for Mother's Day, but in recent years, more and more people seem to be giving hydrangeas.
Incidentally, in the language of flowers, pink hydrangeas mean "cheerful woman," and thus, are the preferred gift for Mother's Day.

translated by VALUES

“Pre-order”

Since this is a gift that is given once a year as a token of appreciation, many are looking to "pre-order" carefully-selected Japanese and Western sweets and other sweets.

translated by VALUES

“Cosmetics”

They are often gifted to mothers who have an interest in beauty, and there seems to be a demand for "cosmetics" that are practical and also bring out their femininity.

translated by VALUES

“Bags”

"Bags" are a practical item and also seems to be attracting attention. Even mothers who already have a lot of bags feel that bags are the perfect gift, as they can never have too many. They can have different kinds to choose from depending on the amount of luggage they have and the outfit they are wearing.

translated by VALUES

"Wallets"

"Wallets," which can be used daily, are recommended as practical gifts and are in demand.

translated by VALUES

"Roses"

"Roses," the eternal flower of women's admiration and popular for its luxurious impression, was also a candidate for a "Mother's Day" gift.

translated by VALUES

"Wine"

A bottle of "wine," which has a gorgeous look and can create an exclusive or special feeling, is also popular. There is a wide variety of wines to choose from, and the wide price range allows for a selection to suit any budget.

Look out for "Hahanohi.me"!

Finally, let's look at the inflow websites that come up after searching "Mother's Day" to see what websites are popular.

While major mail order websites such as Rakuten Ichiba and Hibiya Kadan ranked high, the next highest-ranking website was the media website "Hahanihi.me (MothersDay.me)." This website claims to be the only information media website in Japan that specializes in "Mother's Day," and in addition to rankings and articles, it also publishes the results of surveys, making it a truly satisfying and useful website.

It is rare for a website to specialize in an event such as "Mother's Day," but on the other hand, although it is an occasion that happens once a year, there was evidence for a big demand.

Incidentally, the company also operates " Chichinohi.jp (FathersDay.jp)" and "Keironohi.jp RespectfortheAgedDay.jp," which will be very useful for holidays where you will express gratitude to family members.
