Spend Mother’s Day in Melbourne differently this year with Beer and BBQ Mother’s Day gift experiences she’ll love. If your Mum prefers a beer over a glass of wine or prefers eating meat over a pasta dish, you’ve come to the right place. This Mother’s Day, surprise your Mum with totally different Mother’s Day presents you can do together.
Maybe she’ll be expecting a Mother’s Day flower delivery and card, and that’s OK, but include a gift experience you can do together and create some fun-filled memories. Mums value spending quality time with their family over anything else. While flower deliveries are lovely, surprise her and try new experiences together.
We love the idea of Beer and BBQ workshops in Melbourne because it’s a gift Mums just wouldn’t expect for Mother’s Day. Have fun trying craft beers together at different Melbourne breweries, or take her along to a BBQ class and enjoy learning how to smoke meats by an expert chef.
While you’ll be able to create some long-lasting memories together, give Mum a gift experience she’ll be able to continue with as a hobby. All of our classes in Melbourne are designed for beginners, so you can feel completely comfortable in knowing there won’t be any egos attending. Meet like-minded people and enjoy getting out of your comfort zone.
By the end of our classes, we hope your Mum will feel empowered to continue with the skills she’s learnt at home, and become the boss she is on the barbeque. She might even consider taking up some of our other classes to bring out her creative side which will improve her overall health and wellness.
So, let us help you find some awesome Mother’s Day gift ideas so you can show your appreciation to your Mum this year.
