CLEVELAND — The National Retail Federation says this year is going to set records for spending on Mother's Day --  and we all know she deserves it. 

In the latest edition of Mom Squad, 3News' Maureen Kyle takes a look at the numbers and trends.

The NRF survey found spending will be around $31.7 billion this year. That's up $3.6 billion from last year.

The biggest spending categories when it comes to gifts are jewelry and special outings like brunch or dinner. 75 percent of consumers plan on buying mom a card. 72 percent plan on buying mom flowers.

How are shoppers choosing their gift? 46 percent want to find something unique and different, while 41 percent want to make sure the gift is meaningful.
