Craft Gift Experiences for Dad in Sydney

As a dad, how would I ideally like to spend Father’s Day? Or for that matter, any special occasion where I’m the focus of attention (birthdays, maybe anniversaries, and other milestone celebrations).

With family, of course – that’s the very essence of what it means to be a dad. And maybe some fun experience gifts for Dad thrown in.

I’d want to do something memorable – it’s supposed to be a special day after all.

And I already have enough things. I have enough clothes (I bought most of my clothes back when I was in my early to mid twenties, which I’m still happily wearing today – after all, the manufacturing of clothes is incredibly wasteful, where each cotton shirt takes 20,000 litres of water to produce, so I’d really rather not contribute further to my planet’s demise). I have enough electronics (I buy my gadgets when they’re fresh and leading edge, rather than waiting around for special occasions to be gifted). I have enough accessories (my smartphone is the ultimate accessory – there’s really no need for a watch, camera, etc).

Being a dad (or mum) can be pretty stressful. There’s a mortgage to pay (often a huge one if you’re in Sydney), a career to chase, and of course, kids to raise, at the very minimum.

I’m a curious person, but you might be fooled into thinking that I don’t have a creative side, given that I spend the majority of my time each week in a corporate-style job which is all about business, making sales, managing operations, etc. But I love to travel when I get the chance (and when budget allows), to give myself a new perspective, to experience something totally new and unexpected. For a special occasion though, I’m not always up for taking an extended break from work or to start dipping deeply into my family savings.

So I’d love a unique and relaxing experience to enjoy with my family. I’d love something which is pre-organised, where we can just show up; nobody likes to do laborious preparations.

It’s more budget-friendly than a weekend away. It’s easy to organise (there’s nothing to organise really, someone just needs to book the tickets). And it’s perfect take a break, to leave all the stress behind, for at least a few hours, while we can happily be mesmerised by something which pleases my inquisitive spirit, like terrarium making, block printing, calligraphy, pottery, resin art, and all sorts of other wonderful crafts that I’ve never even heard of. By forcing me to focus on the task at hand, on learning and applying my skills in a hands-on environment, I’ll be in the moment with my family, enjoying some much-needed mindfulness.

Of course, sometimes dads can be tricky to gift for. Some work long hours, whether by passion or necessity, or may have shifting schedules, where you never really know when they’ll be available. Some can be a bit closed off, and you really wonder what they’re thinking, whether a fragrance making class would be too feminine or whether it would actually hit the spot. This is what gift cards were invented for. It’s a way of telling dad that you’ve thought of what he’d enjoy, but you just want to leave the specifics for him to choose. After all, surprises are nice, but they often don’t go to plan!

Inspired? Check out ClassBento’s range of workshops, or grab a gift card. We add new classes every month, so if you don’t see something that dad would love right now, just check back again later. Give dad the great experience that he deserves.
