Mother's Day Gift Experiences in the North East

Mother's Day is just around the corner (SUNDAY 6th MARCH) and this is the first Mother's Day in around four years that I actually have off work! Yeah I can't wait. On the day we have planned Sunday lunch at The Northumbrian Piper - a little hidden gem in Gosforth. I'm hoping the sun will have his hat on and the kids can play outside in the play area and I can R-E-L-A-X! I'll probably end up blogging about it so I'll let you know what it's like.

North East themed gifts for mum this Mother's Day

A little bit of history for you - Mothering Sunday falls on the fourth Sunday in lent and is exactly three weeks before Easter and dates back as far as the sixteenth century. It is an occasion for honouring the mother's of children and giving them presents. YEAH! I am always a huge supporter of local businesses and there are some FAB experiences available in the North East this year that I am sure any mother will love. Here are my favourites:-

1 - Mother's Day Live Music night at Gusto with Glen Roughead Swing Band

Gusto have pulled out all of the stops with their live music event which takes place on Thursday 3rd March at 7pm (please note this event takes place BEFORE Mother's Day so taking your mum out for the evening really will be a surprise).

4 - Mother's Day Pampering at Sammy Anne's

Sammy Anne's in Whitley Bay is my favourite salon and I just wish I had more time to indulge in their wonderful treatments! Luckily for me, I have planned some time to take my mum for this treatment and we both cannot wait.

Mother's Day Offer - can be booked throughout March 2016 only

For £37 per person you can enjoy a full body massage using a combination of Camellia oil, Lavender, Patchouli, Rose & Ylang Ylang essential oils to give your skin a luxurious treat, then a blackberry, rose petal & vanilla infused water to finish this 60 minute treatment. Sounds like heaven! This treatment can also be bought as a gift voucher (but must be booked in March).

North East themed gift ideas for mum this Mother's Day

I'd love to hear how you are treating your mum this Mother's Day.



  1. No mummy should feel unloved as long as people follow your nifty guide. I have a feeling I will be at Nethermined with Looby which isn't exactly the most Motherly treat but hey ho, since my children have been left to their own devices they've made some interesting choices in the present department ;)

    1. Oh Nethermined will still be fun - all about the quality time together! Maybe visit somewhere for a nice lunch before or after x

  2. Ohh! Everything sounds lovely. That Afternoon Tea box sounds amazing!
