By Annie Symmonds

Do you find yourself falling down the trap of stereotypical Mother's Day gifts, like flowers or a candle? With unique gift experiences for Mum, you can surprise and delight her for Mother's Day 2024. In fact, instead of getting Mum a bunch of blooms, why not go to a flower arranging class together and make your own customised arrangement!

Flower arranging classes across Australia allow you and your Mum to spend some quality time together creating fond memories at a flower arranging class. In a world where everyone is always hustling and bustling, it pays to take time out and try something new together while making this Mother’s Day in Australia completely different from the rest.

With no previous experience required, step out of your comfort zone and enjoy learning how to arrange flowers like a pro with your Mum. She’ll love this experience you can do together, where you’ll learn brand new skills you can put into practice. Flowers bring a lot of joy to many, so imagine filling your home with bunches of flowers you’ve personally put together.

While we aim to bring families closer together this Mother’s Day by taking part in gift experiences, we hope it will spark a new tradition where you’ll try new experiences each year together, or even on a regular basis. Enjoy spending quality time together and do more things you love, which will ultimately bring more happiness and improved overall wellness. You never know, you could end up starting a new hobby together!

With this in mind, let us introduce some of the most popular Mother’s Day flower arranging classes in Australia.
