While we all make an effort to make sure our mums feel appreciated year-round, Mother’s Day is a great excuse to go the extra mile.

Whether she’s an avid foodie, needs an excuse to take a break or loves nothing more than spending quality time together – Sunderland businesses have something for everyone.

And if you still haven’t found a good reason to spend the Sunderland Gift Card you got for Christmas then why not use it to get your mum something really special?

Not only are there a huge range of retailers to choose from – more than 150 signed up to the scheme, in fact – but you’ll be supporting local businesses too…
