Head to the picturesque Hunter Valley for a beer and wine tour
There's no better way to express your gratitude than by sending the lucky lady to Australia's oldest wine-growing region. In this beer and wine tour, she'll escape to the Hunter Valley and sample handcrafted beverages while also drinking in the region's stunning natural beauty!
Surrounded by vineyards known for semillon and shiraz, she'll peek behind the scenes at two craft breweries and boutique wineries. Alongside witnessing the brewing process firsthand, there's ample time to enjoy subtle notes and a delicious meal bursting with local produce. Looking for Christmas gifts for women who don't have a wishlist? We've got you covered!
Nothing’s beyond repair with Kintsugi
A beginner's kintsugi workshop is a wonderful way to boost her self-esteem because it reveals the resilience and uniqueness of broken things. If she can transform cracks into exquisite detail, she'll feel more empowered to heal old scars.
Under the guidance of an expert teacher, she'll mend fractured pottery using epoxy glue, putty and lacquer laced with gold, platinum or silver. As well as creating standout centrepieces, the method also promotes sustainability by giving students skills to repair objects at home.

Master the mindful art of Japanese flower arranging
If she's fanatical about flower arranging, how about a floristry class? She'll unleash her creativity on a bunch of blooms and learn about the Japanese floral philosophy of Ikebana.
Ikebana means "living flowers", and it emphasises fresh branches, leaves, grasses, and blossoms. The composition is equally important as the materials with bouquets boasting asymmetrical lines and minimalism (think less is more).
Ethos aside, crafting a masterpiece is hungry work! Luckily, there's a smorgasbord of tasty nibbles nearby to keep energy levels high.
Weave a macrame plant hanger for houseplants
During a marvellous macrame workshop, stressed-out women can unwind by knotting locally spun rope into a gorgeous plant hanger.
Macrame enhances emotional wellbeing and mental aptitude by occupying nimble fingers. It's impossible to fret about to-dos and deadlines when the mind's wholly absorbed in gorgeous patterns and macrame knots, and these craft classes encourage complete self-expression. The ultimate goal isn't perfection but to form something meaningful.
For added inspiration, she's free to bring refreshments – nothing unlocks imagination like a tipple or two!

Head to Spain and learn how to cook mouth-watering tapas dishes
Spanish cuisine is celebrated for fresh and colourful ingredients coated in lip-smacking seasonings like garlic and cayenne. This cooking class focuses on one speciality in particular – tapas!
As heady aromas permeate the air, she'll prepare several small dishes that are sure to impress the most discerning dinner guests.
