Mother's Day in Calcutta / Kolkata | Celebrate - Buy a Gift for your Mom | American Consumerism reaches Bengali Shores

Mother's Day recently passed by. Purses and jewelery from brands like Louis Vuitton saw strong sales. Spa trips were gifted to a few lucky moms. Many more worked till the last minute and then rushed to the mall to buy a Hallmark's card, flowers and perhaps a gift from a store. Mother's day generated about 8% of jewelery sales in the USA in 2008. Americans spent some $2.6 billion on flowers, $1.53 billion on pampering gifts, and $68 million on greeting cards. What exactly is a Mother's Day ? Nothing but a scheme by the store and brand owners to sell more products by blackmailing and labeling those people who confuse love with gift giving in the first place.

But - let us not always be this caustic. Why don't you gift some books, movies and CDs to your Mother ?  Check out some of the great deals on various genuine products we have at WBRi Affiliate Store  and purchase happiness for your mother if you can. CLICK HERE >
