Our experience gifts are great for birthdays, Christmas, Mother's day, Father's day, or just because.


Inspire their creative side

Treat someone to a much needed artisan escape from their day to day routine.

Gift them a playful and relaxing experience, near them.

Let their creative side flourish, with classic activities like pottery, painting or dessert making.

Or broaden their horizons with something a little different, like Handplane shaping, Mandala drawing or lampshade making.

Gift a specific class, or let her or him choose with a custom gift card.

Make someone happy.


Old, young, him, her, East, West - we've got something for everyone

Our classes are perfect for that discerning partner, friend or family member, who's been there, done that. Impress them and give them something truly memorable, maybe something a bit quirky, but definitely something that's as unique as them.

Whether you're looking to gift a significant other, a colleague who needs a pat on the back, friends or family, ClassBento has lots of local and authentic experiences available for your gifting needs.

Give them a gift that's just as creative, inspiring and unique as they are.

All our classes are beginner friendly, and everything's provided (unless otherwise specified), so just show up and enjoy.

Our workshops stretch from the Blue Mountains to Bundeena and everything in between, so you're sure to find something near, and you'll be supporting local artists and small businesses too.

Indulge their senses with fragrance, candle, soap or chocolate making. Transform their perspectives with meditation and abstract art. Or let them get lost in the moment with making a miniature garden in a terrarium, or carving stamping blocks.

Let them get some digital detox and to put some mindfulness into their week. Who knows, they may even pick up a cherished lifelong hobby.

Private workshops are available for one on one or couple experiences, or join a public workshop to meet new friends and get social.

We've also got lots of kid-friendly and senior-friendly activities, so no matter who you are, there's a wonderful experience awaiting you at ClassBento.

And if you're looking for a special experience for that wife / husband / girlfriend / boyfriend - find a class based on something they love (whether it's chocolate, candles, skincare or something else), and maybe join in and have an intimate experience with them.

A perfect way to say "thank you", "I love you", or even just "let's spend some quality time together".


A meaningful gift

ClassBento gift recipients can choose to donate to Dementia Australia, at no extra cost to them.

Let them make a difference to one of the world's greatest challenges, dementia.


Great for last-minute gifting

Our gift certificates are sent to you immediately via email, which you can then print and present. If you'd like us to send you a gift card, we can do that too, within 1 to 3 business days.

And if you'd like us to help you customise or further personalise your gift certificate to make it extra special, no problem, just get in touch.


People are shifting over to experience gifts

shows that people are preferring to do things and have new experiences, rather than accumulating goods and commodities

This is especially the case amongst Millenials worldwide.

People are increasingly looking for authentic, unique and local artisan experiences to enrich their lives and to share with others.


Celebrate your local artists

They're your local bakers, florists, jewelers, crafters and more. They're your neighbours, a friend of a friend, fellow parents.

These are your ClassBento teachers. By gifting through ClassBento, we'll be keeping income and jobs within our local communities, and supporting your local artists.

They're the ones who will spice up our lives and those of our children, and who will ensure that our communities and lives are arty, funky, interesting, tasty and zesty.
