One of the top fun things to do in Perth for couples, glassblowing classes are hands-on, challenging, and even a little bit magical. After all, there’s something quite mesmerising about playing with fire.

All classes take place under the watchful eye of a professional glassblowing artisan, meaning they’re 100 percent safe for beginners.
Wondering what to expect in a glassblowing class? In this glass bead making workshop, couples will learn how to transform glass rods into colourful beads that can be used as decorations or reimagined as a wearable work of art. Perth isn’t the only city where you’ll find glassblowing classes for couples, with Melbourne artisans also offering some incredible workshops.

If your gift recipients aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty, metalwork classes make unique presents for couples. Led by experienced metalsmiths, these classes take you behind the scenes of blacksmithing studios and show you how to navigate your way around a forge, anvil, hammer, tongs and fire poker. Trust us, sparks will be flying!
Looking for something a little edgier? Knife making workshops make tongue-in-cheek couple gifts and teach you how to forge your own blade using high-carbon steel. They’ll get to take home their very own hand-forged knife, making this workshop so much more meaningful than simply wrapping up a Victorinox you picked up from Myer.
Coffee and barista courses
Looking for unique wedding gifts for couples? Look no further than coffee classes that teach your newlyweds how to create the perfect cup of Java. Australia is a nation of coffee lovers, meaning you’ll find these gift experiences for couples across the country.
Of course, as the country’s coffee mecca, Melbourne offers some of the best barista courses.

If you think your recipients would prefer to drink coffee rather than make it, a coffee lovers walking tour is one of the most fun things to do in Melbourne.
What’s one thing you can never have too much of? Delicious food of course. Learning how to cook together is a fantastic chance for couples to bond and reconnect. Wondering whether to opt for a pasta making masterclass, a Chinese dumpling extravaganza or a tantalising Thai feast? If you’re having trouble deciding, think about a country your recipients have always wanted to visit together and choose a cooking class to match. If you’re on the hunt for meaningful wedding presents for couples, why not choose a cooking class inspired by their honeymoon destination?
There’s no need for any previous experience, making our cooking classes great anniversary gifts for couples who want to get off Uber Eats and start making the most of their own kitchen. Armed with the skills to recreate recipes at home, couples can continue to enjoy the class long after they step out the kitchen. As the gift giver, cooking classes are also the perfect excuse to fish for a dinner invitation.
Looking for foolproof presents for couples who have everything? It’s very possible your loved-up couple has never even heard of Kintsugi, let alone learned how to master it. The ancient Japanese art is incredibly therapeutic and is all about learning to embrace imperfection - a philosophy that every couple should embrace. Guided by experienced artisans, Kintsugi classes teach you how to transform broken ceramics into beautiful works of art using lacquer, fine gold powder and a healthy dose of creativity.
The upcycling nature of Kintsugi classes also make them great gifts for eco-conscious couples trying to minimise their waste. This Japanese craft is making waves across Australia, with classes now one of the best fun things to do in Brisbane for couples. Students will leave with their very own Kintsugi art to take home and treasure for years to come. The use of gold powder really makes Kintsugi ceramics sparkle and makes these classes great Christmas presents for couples as well.
Encourage mindfulness with these personalised gifts for couples
Stress is a natural part of any relationship, from small things like how to stack the dishwasher or what colour to paint the living room, to bigger hurdles like whether it’s a good time to buy a house. As a couple, it’s important not to get too caught up in the stress of everyday life and to carve out some time to relax, unwind and simply enjoy one another’s company. Experience gifts for couples do just this and encourage the lovers in your life to step back and enjoy some well-deserved time together.
Learning to master a new skill can also be amazingly therapeutic, making these gifts for couples a thoughtful way to support mental health. From gold-dusted Kintsugi workshops to high-energy cooking classes, experience gifts demand newbie makers to focus exclusively on the task at hand. No matter what’s going on in the outside world, they give participants permission to step back and find a moment of Zen.
