30th birthday present ideas that taste fancy
Who doesn’t love eating? Most of us would die without it, and a sensory journey into the culinary arts is one of the best things to do in Sydney when hunting down birthday gift ideas. Sydney is chock-a-block with fancy, black tie establishments that can really drain the bank account just with the entrees, but who wants to break the bank for your 30th birthday gift ideas?
Finding a middle ground between enjoying the finer things and still having money to live doesn’t have to be difficult, and experience gifts for a 30th birthday are a fantastic way to indulge the appropriation of fine dining into the middle class. Heard of truffle oil? Exactly. Here are some of the best 30th gift ideas that’ll get everyone salivating on their cravat.
Salts Meats Cheese in Dee Why are experts in making the fancy affordable. A glorious Italian restaurant specialising in authentic Italian cooking, enjoying a meal there makes for one of the more delicious 30th gift ideas in Sydney, provided you like cheese. Their Flaming Cheese Wheel Experience is one of legend; it’s impossible to look past if hunting for gift ideas for men who love cheese.
Unlike other cooking experiences, you don’t have to do anything other than sit, watch and then enjoy. Using the biggest cheese wheel you may have ever seen, your Italian chef will make your pasta right in front of you, stirring it into a flame-melted cheese wheel, giving your pasta a cheese overload that’ll blow your taste buds to the back of your throat. Eating something cooked in a cheese wheel may sound excessive, but it makes for one of the tastiest 30th birthday present ideas in Sydney for those who love a unique foodie experience. Recommendation? Go the carbonara. The melted cheese wheel blends audaciously with the speck, creating one of the best experience gifts your mouth could ask for. Tuxedo is optional.
Chasing 30th birthday present ideas that are a little more energetic? Stress not. Cocktail making classes are fun gift ideas for women looking to shake things up for their birthday, and you can find them all here (the native cocktail making masterclass is particularly unique, and will give you a very patriotic buzz). We won’t dwell on them, however, because cocktail classes are covered an awful lot when it comes to birthday present ideas in Sydney, here at ClassBento.
If you’re looking for a mixology workshop with a twist, it’s hard to look past Brix Distillery. Although a rum distillery, don’t let that fool you: this place is low-key fancy and a fantastic option when hunting down 30th gift ideas in Sydney for the more refined drinker. Nestled in the classy suburb of Surry Hills, Brix Distillery run a rum spicing workshop that’s so polished, it’d gentrify even the hardiest of sailors. Over the course of the workshop, you’ll learn a bit about the history of rum and the chemistry behind it, before taking a variety of essential oils and whipping up your own concoction. Rum may not have a particularly fancy reputation, but this is one rum experience fit for the classiest of people.
A flower arranging class is a very fancy and refined selection when searching for 30th gift ideas, and it’s perfect if chasing gifts for women who enjoy the finer things in life. Our Ikebana Flower Arranging class, however, offers an engaging deep-dive into the sublime elegance of Japanese floristry.
A shining example of elegance in simplicity, Ikebana is one of the best gifts for fancy folk who froth a flower. Ikebana is stylistically distinct from western flower arranging due to its emphasis on form over colour and style. The goal of Ikebana is to create a perfectly balanced arrangement, as opposed to a colour explosion. Yuga Floral Design in Glebe can show you how to arrange flowers in the fanciest way possible, for your 30th birthday present ideas in Sydney.
Remember how we mentioned Surry Hills, before? Well, that suburb is just too classy to not get another mention and ClassBento has some fancy birthday gift ideas for women in Sydney looking to smell the roses.
Provider Store in Surry Hills offers an exquisite candle making workshop that’s fancier than a tuxedo-wearing itself. Although candle making itself is actually not a particularly long or difficult process, Provider Store offers a class that turns candlemaking into a fun and engaging two-hour experience. Complete with a cheeseboard and sparkling wine, this is one of the best birthday gift ideas for those after a refined experience that’ll enhance all your sense.
Not only will you walk away with candles you’ve created yourself (and a belly full of cheese and wine), but Provider Store offers special packages for groups celebrating, so don’t hesitate to contact ahead of time if you’re hoping to make your 30th birthday present ideas in Sydney particularly special.
