2. Terrarium making class

Help Dad get more creative while getting his hands dirty in a terrarium making class. This popular first Father’s Day gift idea is an exciting opportunity for Dad to learn how to master the art of building a terrarium for the home.

This confidence-building workshop is a fantastic way for Dad to get his DIY skills on in a unique setting. Bring the whole family along and create gorgeous memories as you learn all about plants together.

 

3. Pottery making class

Pottery making classes are really popular gift experiences for men, especially for first Father’s Day gifts in Australia. In this calming beginners class, Dad will be able to spend time away from his busy schedule and relax into learning new DIY skills in a creative environment. 

He’ll learn the art of clay-hand building or take on a pottery wheel throwing class and be mesmerised as he learns to form objects simply by moulding and shaping clay in his hands. There’s something incredibly satisfying and rewarding for many people when it comes to pottery making classes, a perfect option when looking for Father’s Day gifts in Australia.

Dad will learn to make anything from plates, bowls, vases or mugs for the home, all of which will make fantastic keepsakes he can use every day as a reminder of his first Father’s Day as a proud dad.

Capturing special moments has never been easier! Thanks to smartphone photography (and probably Instagram), taking photos has become more popular than ever. First-time Dads know how important it is to capture special moments of their children before they’re all grown up. Think he might like to take his phone photography to the next level? Head along to a fascinating smartphone photography class together.

There’s much more to taking photos than pulling your phone out of your pocket! Discover tips and tricks from a local photography expert who will teach Dad how to take exceptional images of his family now and into the future. He’ll also learn which editing apps to use and how to frame his subjects in the best way possible.

 

5. Barista Class

If there’s one thing parents need more of when having a baby, it’s coffee! Dad will love a barista class as he’ll learn everything there is to know about making the best cup of coffee, just as the barista does at his local coffee shop. Let him do you both a favour and learn everything about using coffee machines, what coffee beans to use and how to heat milk perfectly and even create some Insta-worthy latte art! Dad will build his confidence (and maybe even chat to some other sleep-deprived Dads) and will soon realise what a fantastic First Father’s Day gift idea it really is!

 

6. Paint and sip class

When starting a family, date night tends to go out of the window. Bring Mum and Dad together for a night off at a fun paint and sip class! Paint and sip is exactly what you might think – paint and sip a glass of wine. It's all about taking a more relaxed approach to art and trying new things which might feel out of your comfort zone. And of course, you’ll have a glass of wine on hand to help you relax into it. As Mum and Dad learn to paint a modern masterpiece, it will help them reconnect, while taking some well-earned time out and away from the little one. It’s a popular couples activity and makes one of the best first Father’s Day gifts in Australia!

Simply choose a beautiful Father’s Day card and organise a gift experience that will surprise him! It will certainly be a memorable first Father’s Day gift in Australia – one that all Aussie Dads will love!
