Finding the perfect Mother's Day gifts in Sydney that sum up how much she means to you can be tricky, but there’s one thing that you can always count on to make your mum happy: spending time with you! Mum. She brought you into this world. She raised, taught, and nurtured you. She’s always been there for you, to guide, to support, and to love you. That’s why we have gathered our top Mother's Day gift experiences in Sydney and unique Mother's Day gift ideas to impress mum in 2021.
While it may feel impossible to repay your mum for the endless amount of love she brings, a much-deserved treat on Mother’s Day shows her just how much you appreciate everything. From terrarium building to cocktail making, there’s something to suit every type of mum.
Customise a beautiful Mother’s Day bouquet
Gifting flowers is always a success when you’re looking for the best Mother's Day presents, but creating your own tasteful arrangement with your loved ones is even better. Surround mum with the season’s most exquisite blooms and let her pick her own to make a beautiful flower arrangement, under the guidance of a master florist.
She can learn how to make a gorgeous bouquet, create a beautiful flower crown or explore an elegant Japanese-style Ikebana flower arrangement, creating harmony with colours, textures and patterns. At the end of the workshop, she will not only walk away with her own stunning Mother's Day flowers but also lots of great memories.
Get creative with fluid art
For the mum who is a creative soul, why not treat her to a Mothers Day gift where she can get experimental with acrylic paints! At an acrylic pouring class, she can get messy with different colours and textures while creating one of a kind artworks.
Paint pouring is easy to learn and incredibly fun. All you need to do is choose your favourite colours, pour them into the tray then cover it with paper and watch as the paint flows out onto the paper in shapes and patterns. Mum can try out an Acrylic Paint Pouring Class with Leah Robinson in Sydney and learn how to truly go with the flow!
Learn the art of macaron making
Every mum loves a sweet treat – and instead of taking her out for high tea to satisfy those cravings, why not learn to make your own desserts this Mother’s Day? Whether your mum is a master in the kitchen or prefers to leave the cooking to the professionals, learning the fine art of macaron making with you by her side will be a fun and unique Mother's Day experience in Sydney.
At a Makmak macaron making class, you will learn to make these delicious French desserts and take home your own batch of cute macarons, with a secret recipe used by Sydney’s finest macaron maker. You can enjoy munching on the pastel shells and irresistible ganaches throughout class too, as you perfect your skills.
If you’re looking for more classes for you and mum to indulge your sweet tooth in Sydney, we have everything from chocolate truffle workshops to cake decorating classes. Regardless of who you're spoiling in 2021 – be it your grandma, aunty or sister – we have Mother's Day presents for every type of mum!
Create your own ceramics together
Give mum a meditative experience, where the journey is just as important (if not more so) than the end product. And why not take advantage of this time to switch off and get creative by joining her? Sharing a relaxing pottery experience with your mum will make for a really special Mother’s Day gift because unlike the hype of a physical gift which fades quickly, the memories of this unique experience will last a lifetime.
These fun pottery classes in Sydney will give mum some time to play with a potter’s wheel or make her very own teapot, perfect for your next tea time together. You will both appreciate the unique imperfections in your own ceramics every time you use them and be reminded of those memorable moments together.
If you’re unsure of what ceramics class to pick for mum, try a beginner’s wheel-thrown pottery class, Japanese kintsugi or have a crack at hand building pottery. Whatever your choice, our Mother’s Day crafts will leave mum smiling ear to ear.
Build an open succulent terrarium
Indoor plants brighten any space and there’s no better gift for mum than a personalised miniature garden to bring light into her own space. Terrariums are an entirely self-contained ecosystem that are incredibly easy to maintain, making them perfect for busy mums who are juggling lots but still want to bring a sense of lushness to their home.
Building this mini plant oasis in a terrarium making class in Sydney with your mum will give you both the opportunity to happily lose yourself in the world of nature. Unlike store-bought terrariums, mum will have the chance to completely customise her mini garden using her favourite plants and decorations, making this Mother’s Day craft very well-loved!
Shake and sip cocktails
On previous Mother’s Days, you may have indulged in cocktails and toasted to the most prominent woman in your life, but in 2021, why not shake things up a bit and learn to make your own customised cocktail creations while you celebrate this special occasion!
Cocktail making classes are a must-do in Sydney, making them perfect for anyone searching for Mother’s Day gift ideas. You still get to do all the regular things (eat, drink and toast to mum) just with a fun twist. In these classes, you will learn how to create the perfect balance in a cocktail and polish up on your shaking, muddling and mixing. With the drinks and nibbles flowing, mum is bound to feel extra special during this Mother’s Day celebration.
Make your own Turkish mosaic lamp
As far as unique gift experiences for mum go, you can’t beat making a Turkish mosaic lamp with Art Masterclass in Darlinghurst. Mum will be able to experience the relaxing effect of this ancient craft as she adds her own personal touches and flair to her lamp. This class is a must do in Sydney and the perfect Mother’s Day gift for creative mums.
