Each of us expresses our emotions differently -- especially love. This Sunday, when we’re celebrating the mothers in our lives, the gifts we choose to give might be based on geography.

That’s what The Trade Desk, a platform that manages digital advertising, discovered when the company researched Mother’s Day trends around the country. While gift-givers in the Northeast are focused on traveling and fitness, shoppers in the West are more apt to love movies, pets and the beach. Gardening accessories are popular presents in both regions, though they’re especially favored by Northeasterners. For Westerners, gardening accessories are the fifth most popular gift, while the top slot goes to spa days.
