North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub


Is your mum a bit of a foodie? Or does she love nothing more than a cheeky tipple or two? How about giving the gift of ‘putting your feet up’ this Mother’s Day?

Well, if you’re ready to take your place as the family favourite this year, look no further than ethical online food retailer 44 Foods who have shared their ultimate gift guide for all of the mama’s in your life.

For the mum with a sweet tooth

If your mum is famous for her sweet tooth, the Thank You Mum Bundle is going to make her day. Indulge her with this collection of chocolate, fudge, shortbread and fruit cake, all washed down with a cuppa or two made with premium tea from Brew Tea Co.

Or, how about a deliciously indulgent Fudge Tasting Collection that’s bursting with classic flavours and best sellers from luxury artisan fudge makers, Fudge Kitchen. Started in 1983, Fudge Kitchen uses a two-hundred-year-old original recipe, handmaking their fudge on a marble slap, with whipping cream instead of butter for a creamier texture. Take a look at the whole range here.

For the mum who likes a tipple or two

Sharpham Estate has been making award-winning wines on the banks of the River Dart for more than 40 years. Send mum a bottle of fruity white Sharpham Dart Valley Reserve or well-balanced and refreshing Pinot Noir Rose, perfect to pair with chicken or fish.

If spirits are more her thing, how about sweetly spiced Cornish honey rum from Mounts Bay Distillery? This tasty tipple features seaweed, honey and saffron harvested from local cliffs and coasts. Or just down the road in Dorset, Conker Spirit create a selection of craft gins including Dorset DryPort Barrel and Navy Strength with £5 from the sale of each bottle donated to the RNLI.

For a confectionery cocktail cabinet of sweet delights, try the Boozy Fudge Sharer, a 15-piece fudge collection that includes Juniper and Kefir Lime Dry Gin, Spiced Rum and Raisin, Espresso Martini, Whiskey Mac and Strawberry Vanilla Vodka and Black Pepper.

For the mum who loves a lie-in
