Mother’s Day is just around the corner but don’t stress, there’s still plenty of time to find the most special woman in your life the perfect Mother’s Day gifts.

No matter what your mum’s interests are, ClassBento has classes to suit everyone and is the perfect place to come if you’re looking for Mother’s Day ideas.

If your mum spends all of her spare time knitting woollens for winter we’ve got the best Mother’s Day craft ideas sorted.

There’s a rope and basket making workshop run by textile artist Sky Carter where she will learn how to upcycle material scraps and coil the material into colourful baskets. Let her creativity flow at a resin art workshop, or test her folding skills at an origami workshop in Brookvale.
You’ve heard of wine and chocolate but what about tea and chocolate. This tea and chocolate pairing workshop is a sensory indulgence that could up being one of the most unique Mother's Day gifts you can find. If handcrafted truffles are more her vibe, there’s the chocolate making workshop run by Adora Handmade chocolates in Marrickville. For something more savoury why not send her on a pickling adventure with an international pickles and vegan poke making class, or take a drip cake making class where she will learn how to whip up a chocolate mud drip cake.
If you always default to Mother’s Day flowers why not change it up this year with a fun ikebana flower arranging class taught by Setsuko Yanagisawa who is qualified florist with a flower shop in Glebe. Spend the day creating something beautiful with your mum at a special Mother’s Day flower crown making workshop led by Nikki of Peony Story. Help her bring the outdoors in with a terrarium making class at Merchant and Green, a beautiful florist in Redfern. Or even try a fun kokedama workshop where she will be able to make her own Japanese hanging moss garden using succulents.
If your mum loves health, fitness and all things natural then do we have the ultimate healthy Mother’s Day hamper for you! Whether it’s a gut health kombucha making workshop where she will learn how to make your own kombucha at home, or a macrobiotic sweets vegan cooking class where there’s no sugar, gluten or dairy on the menu. The natural skin care making workshop will give her all the information she needs to be able to make her own beauty products, or book her in for some calligraphy and tea at this mindfulness workshop.
If your mum's the adventurous type and always on the lookout to try something new why not challenge her with a glass blowing taster session taught by contemporary glass artist Mark Eliott. Book her in to a hula hoop workshop taught by a professional circus artist, tell her to put on some old clothes and get messy creating indigo fabrics at a shibori workshop, or venture completely outside the box with a massage workshop.
