If you have an idea of what your mother-in-law is interested in, you’re already on the right track.

Soothe Stress with a Skincare workshop
Bond with your mother-in-law and book her into a natural skincare class that you can do together. Skincare making is a fascinating and complex process that’s both empowering and educational. Together, you’ll learn how to take better care of your skin using the products you’ve made yourselves.
In Sydney, take a natural skincare class with Sage Cosmetic Coaching and learn how to make the most incredible skincare products, all from 100% natural ingredients.

Enjoy a glass of wine and nibbles during the class and head home with a whole host of gorgeous products that you can recreate when needed. This is an excellent class to gift your mother-in-law, giving you both an opportunity to laugh, smile and bond, bringing you closer together over the beauty of DIY skincare.

Forget the World at a Flower Arranging Class
Mother’s Day flowers are a given, and of course, everyone should consider giving their mother-in-law flowers for the big day. Why not add on an extra gift she won’t expect and organise a flower arranging class as well? Book a seasonal floral arranging workshop with local florist, Tonia Blume in Balmain, and spend the day surrounded by fragrant blooms. In this flower arranging workshop in Sydney, your mother-in-law will learn everything there is to know about creating the most beautiful bunch of seasonal flowers that she can recreate time and time again.

Dig In at a Pottery Class
Pottery classes are some of the most popular gift experiences for mothers-in-law because they offer so many health benefits. Thanks to the meditative aspects of the hands-on craft, many people end up continuing their pottery journey back home as a creative outlet that provides relief for the hustle and bustle of day to day life. With so many different types of pottery classes to consider, you might not be sure it’s something your mother-in-law will love. But rest assured, people from all different walks of life can connect to pottery making in one way or another.
Why not book a gift experience for her with a clay hand building class? When all she needs is clay and water to build beautiful ceramics, she can easily continue learning and developing her skills when she returns home. Learn to make mugs, bowls, vases, plates and so much more in this rewarding class. You never know, you might just inspire your mother-in-law to start a new hobby or passion.
Our Mother’s Day gift ideas for your mother-in-law are unique, meaning you could totally surprise her by giving her much more than a physical present. Our classes are designed to kick-start a new hobby or passion and support your mental health and wellbeing. So while you may have considered giving her a big bunch of flowers, step it up a notch for Mother’s Day 2021 and show her how much you appreciate her.
