Mothers Day is about two weeks away, but Americans are already out shopping.

A new report from IBISWorld found that there will be a 1.7 percent increase in Mothers Day spending in 2015 compared to last year. American shoppers will spend about $170 on average for Mothers Day, which equates to more than $20 billion total across the country, according to the report.

Most shoppers are opting to buy their mothers jewelry or take them out for the night, according to the report.

Moms will have plenty to look forward to this year, as an improving economy is expected to boost retail spending across eight of the 10 most popular product categories for Mothers Day, IBISWorld reported.

Aside from increased spending on jewelry and a night out, IBISWorld also predicts Americans will buy household tools for mom to keep the home clean and safe for their children. Heres a look at 19 of those gifts, which are perfect for both new mothers and mothers with older children.
