In between family get-togethers, work parties and Christmas shopping missions, it can be hard to carve out time to spend with your other half during the festive season. But don’t worry - these gift experiences for couples are the perfect antidote to a jam-packed December.
This year, we’ve got romance all wrapped up with these playful gifts for couples that give you a chance to reconnect with your lover. From flour-dusted sourdough baking masterclasses to wreath making workshops with all the festive feels, you’ll love the chance to spend quality time with your significant other this Christmas.
Wreath making classes
What better way to ring in the merrymaking season than with a wreath making class for two? Held across Australia, these creativity-fuelled gifts for couples will have you feeling all kinds of festive. Whether you prefer a traditional aesthetic with evergreen foliage and red ribbons or want to put a contemporary spin on your wreath with native Australian blooms, our wreath making classes cover all bases. Is your partner a self-confessed plant lady? Our succulent wreath workshop in Sydney will have green thumbs squealing with delight.
All DIY wreath classes are led by experienced florists who will walk you through the entire wreath making process, from start to finish. You’ll both leave with a beautiful handmade wreath to show off on your front door, hang in the office or gift to a friend or loved one.
Pro tip for festive-themed couple gifts: it can be a good idea to gift a wreath making class well before Christmas as it gives you a chance to show off your masterpieces in the leadup to the big day. Think of it as a chance to spend quality time with your partner before the chaos of Christmas kicks in.
Sourdough/bread baking classes
From hot buttered toast to deli-style sandwiches, sourdough making classes will elevate your bread game to the next level. They’re one of our best-selling gift experiences for couples and teach you how to make perfect, bakery-worthy bread from scratch. Trust us, you’ll never set foot in Brumby's again after you learn how to master the art of sourdough. As well as enjoying the class itself, you’ll both leave with a brand new skill you can practice at home together.
Need one more reason why sourdough baking classes make the perfect gifts for couples this Christmas? Let’s face it, your leftover turkey and cranberry sauce will taste a whole lot better sandwiched between two thick slabs of freshly baked sourdough bread.
Fluid art classes
Fun and creative, fluid art classes are the perfect way to unwind after a hectic Christmas season. From the moment you step into the studio, you’ll feel all the stress of Christmas start to melt away. After an initial meet and greet with your teacher, you and your lover will get stuck into the task at hand.
With loads of different themes to choose from, fluid art classes are one of the most fun things to do in Brisbane. If you’re a couple who loves to entertain, decorating your own cheeseboard and coaster set is guaranteed to get guests talking at your next party. Green thumbs will love customising planter pots using vibrant alcohol inks, while interior design enthusiasts will swoon over resin side table workshops that teach you how to decorate furniture with flair. You can even stock up on supplies and continue your new hobby at home, making fluid art classes great gifts for couples looking for unique date night ideas in Brisbane.
Portrait drawing classes
If you’re looking for fun things to do in Sydney for couples, you’ll love our portrait drawing classes. Relaxed and low key, these hands-on Sydney workshops teach you how to capture the beauty, character and emotions of the human face. It’s a fantastic activity to do together as a couple, especially if you decide to immortalise each other using your newfound skillset.
There’s no need for any previous art experience, with all classes geared towards beginners and designed to unleash your inner artist. Of course, if you are a bit of an old hand with a charcoal pencil, your teacher will raise the bar and teach you some new skills and techniques. Feeling extra playful? A cartoon drawing class is a fun spin on a traditional portrait workshop. It’s guaranteed to get some giggles and is great if you’re looking for tongue-in-cheek experience gifts for couples.
Food and drink tastings
Keep the good times rolling with food and drink tasting experiences in your local city. One of the top fun things to do in Melbourne, tours take you behind the scenes of the city’s best cafes, restaurants and bars. If you’re the kind of couple who likes to unwind with a G&T on a Friday night, a gin making masterclass will tick all your boxes. Craving time away from the city? Whisk your lover away for a farmers picnic experience for two and enjoy an afternoon in the vineyards.
Nurture your mental health this Christmas with gifts for couples
Christmas is usually packed with smiles, laughter and joy. But it can also come with a unique set of challenges. Perhaps it’s the first Christmas your partner will experience after losing a beloved parent, or maybe you’re both experiencing bucketloads of stress at work, or nominated yourselves as Christmas Day hosts back in July and are now feeling the pressure to host the perfect celebration.
Whatever your situation, it’s important to step back and take care of your mental health this festive season. Our gifts for couples will help you do just that, encouraging you to unplug from your day-to-day lives and reconnect as a couple.
