From decorating her fruit cake to making ho-ho-homewares, our classes cover an array of exciting Australian crafts and fun things to do in every city. Read on to discover more Christmas gift ideas for mum that are guaranteed to make her smile this season.
1. Help her shine at a candle making class
Type ‘candles’ into Pinterest and you’ll find enough photos to set your imagination alight! We’ve come a long way from using candles as a simple light source. Today, candles are a beautiful way to upgrade your me-time – and everything from their scent to their packaging can help to set the mood.
At one of our candle making classes, your mum will learn how to make her own Pinterest-worthy candles. Our friendly workshops are led by local makers who use all-natural ingredients, ensuring your mum’s self-care is just as gentle on the planet as it is on her mental health. From realistic illusion candles to candles decorated with her favourite dried flowers, these courses are some of the best gifts for mum this Christmas.
2. Sweeten the festive season with a cake decorating class
What would Christmas be without cake? Whether your mum’s a chocoholic or likes to keep things traditional with a boozy fruit cake, she’ll learn how to sprinkle, ice, and pipe to perfection at our fun cake decorating classes!
As well as our year-round classes, we also offer a variety of festive workshops, perfect for mums who want to create a Christmas showstopper. Our friendly instructors can teach your mum how to decorate a Rudolph the Reindeer cake or even make one that looks like a present box! It’s the perfect way to treat your mum and help her learn new skills at the same time.
3. Bring the outside in at a wreath making workshop
Wreaths were traditionally used to symbolise the promise of Spring during cold, long winters – but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy them in the sunny Southern hemisphere too! Christmas wreaths are a wonderful way to bring some greenery into your home, so if you’re looking for Christmas present ideas for mum, what could be better than a wreath making class?
Led by some of the best florists in the country, our courses cover everything from dried Christmas wreaths to wreaths made with seasonal flowers. Not only will your mum leave her class with a gorgeous decoration for her home, but she’ll also have gained skills that will last a lifetime, helping her create breathtaking floral arrangements all year round.
4. Feel like a queen at a flower crown class
Treat your mum like royalty this Christmas by booking her a spot on a DIY flower crown making course. Whether you’re looking for fun things to do in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or the Gold Coast, our beginner-friendly classes are the perfect place to get creative and connect with likeminded people.
Your mum will receive all of the tools, training, and materials she needs to create a stunning flower crown. Our friendly florists will always be on hand to offer advice, but there are no rules – she’ll be free to embrace her own personal style and make something that truly reflects her tastes.

5. Flex your green fingers at a terrarium making class
There’s no shortage of houseplants on Pinterest, so if you’re looking for Christmas present ideas for mum that will help her create her dream home, why not treat her to a terrarium making class? Sometimes known as glass gardens, terrariums are little ecosystems that enable plants such as succulents to grow. These low-maintenance arrangements are a beautiful addition to any home – and they’re so easy to look after that anyone can enjoy them, beginners and green-fingered experts alike!
Our terrarium making classes are a calming oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of the festive season. From choosing her plants to scattering her stones, your mum will have the chance to slow down and focus on the task at hand. There are no stressful ‘to-do’ lists here – just soothing succulents, calming cacti, and the joy of designing your perfect arrangement.
6. Wrap things up at a Kokedama class
Wrapping doesn’t have to be reserved for Christmas presents! At our beginner-friendly Kokedama classes, your mum will have the chance to wrap, wind, and twist her own DIY Kokedama – a traditional Japanese moss ball that’s used to grow ornamental plants.
A Kokedama is sometimes described as a plant sculpture. To make one, you encase the roots of a plant in a ball of moss and soil. This creates a self-contained support for your plant, no pot or planter required. You can hang your Kokedama from the ceiling to show it off or display it in a dish, perfect for mums who want a Pinterest-inspired centrepiece for their Christmas table.
Simple, stunning, and sustainable, these beautiful arrangements are bound (literally) to make an impact in any home. But they’re not just beautiful to look at. Kokedama is a centuries-old craft that can help you focus, destress, and relax. If you’re looking for Christmas gifts for mum that will help boost her wellbeing as the year draws to a close, look no further. The art of Kokedama is the gift that keeps on giving.
