When a couple close to you has an anniversary coming up, finding wedding anniversary gifts in Sydney can be a mad scramble. With certain anniversary gift traditions to follow, coming up with gifts for couples doesn’t have to be a bore. With so many things to do in Sydney, it may be easier than you think to come up with great gift experiences for couples, or date night ideas if you are, in fact, one half of said-couple. ClassBento has a few fantastic gifts for couples that won’t just celebrate the anniversary but really help you - as they say - set the mood.
Date night ideas in Sydney
Thankfully, Sydney is starting to re-open after months in lockdown, and there are a plethora of date night ideas and gift experiences for couples waiting to be gobbled up. Although not everything is raring to go and there are still a few restrictions to navigate, there’s still plenty of things to do in Sydney when chasing an anniversary gift for the husband or wife that you can also enjoy.
If you’re looking for date night ideas that’ll really get your hands working, Honka’s Bar + Eats in Potts Point run one of the most popular dumpling making classes in Sydney! For ninety minutes, you and your partner will learn how to construct a variety of dumplings - both steamed and fried - with a delicious range of fillings and meats. What makes this one of the best gifts ideas for the husband or wife is how fun and casual the class is.
Cooking classes are a great way to learn new skills, but they can sometimes be a bit too formal for fun date night ideas. Honka’s Bar + Eats have found the perfect middle ground, and on top of this, you can also add on an “all-you-can-drink” package to really dive headfirst into the evening.
After the workshop is over, you and your partner will enjoy a dumpling feast like no other, savouring everything you’ve made. A quick and easy stroll to Rushcutter’s Bay, Honka’s Bar + Eats is one of the best date ideas not just for their incredible dumplings, but also because of their location. And being a short walk to King’s Cross station, you can make the most of the drinks package.
If you’re chasing something a little more comprehensive, Honka’s Bar + Eats also offers a dumpling and cocktail making class for you to make and shake your way to a great evening. These classes are exceptionally popular when it comes to gift experiences for couples, so we recommend booking well in advance.
