Resin Art Workshop: Cheeseboard and Coaster Set review by Christine Smink - Brisbane

Leisa Harris

This was a birthday present to my niece who loves to make bead bracelets and I've always wanted to learn how to make jewellery. The teacher was very helpful and really wanted us to learn to be able to replicate the process on our own but was very helpful and ended up doing some of our components. There was a lot of choice of materials and good quality. We made a bracelet and earrings. Even though  + more

Megan Kinsey

Had a great time creating with my daughter at the clay and sip, a birthday gift from my daughter. We chatted and were creative with some great encouragement from Tiger our teacher for the afternoon.

Great activity. And great gift for kids of all ages. Younger children will need more assistance. We got given big blobs of clay, enough to make what was suggested and more.

Roy Sargent

The kitchen was amazing, everything needed (and more) was available if needed or wanted. The chef, assistant chef and assistants were very helpful, the instructions and guidance was great. As always with cooking classes, the proof was in the eating of the dishes (which was very tasty!). The class went through the steps to create the meal, in the order it needed to be done for eating at the end (planning  + more

Beginner Terrarium Making Class review by Albert Mellam - Brisbane

John Galligan

I'd received it as a gift for my 50th birthday (3 years ago :/). Elle was really great - informative, fun and entertaining. Venue was great and the staff worked really hard with all the boring prep work done. This made the class really efficient, but probably did give a false sense of how easy it is. It was like a cooking show :). I learnt a number of things. I really liked how Elle showed us how  + more

This was a present from Santa for my 8 year old daughter. Might sound strange taking an 8 year old to a paint and sip, but the glow paint was a thrill for her. Teacher was fantastic and very knowledgeable and encouraging.

Romantic experience gifts

Experience gift cards can boost wellbeing

If you’ve ever wondered what the benefits are of gifting experiences over traditional gifts, we’re here to help shed some light. Experience gift cards are so much more than just the excitement of trying something new or learning a skill. They're also incredibly beneficial for your wellbeing! Research has shown that engaging in creative activities can help reduce stress, promote positivity and boost mental health. So, when you gift an experience voucher, you're essentially gifting joy, relaxation and a much-needed break from the daily grind!

Picture your loved one immersing themselves in a painting class, letting their worries melt away as they focus on their canvas and colours. Or imagine them laughing with friends at a pottery workshop as they shape clay into funky pots and vases. These moments of joy and relaxation are priceless, and a pretty cool perk to our digital gift cards.

And it's not just about individual enjoyment either. Group experiences can help connect friends, family members and even colleagues too. Whether it's a team building cooking class or a group painting session, shared experiences create lasting memories that go well beyond a physical gift.

Plus, with our ClassBento experience vouchers, your giftee will have the freedom to choose what they want to do and when they want to do it! This flexibility ensures that your gift fits perfectly into their schedule and preferences. If you’re curious as to how experience gifts work, it really is as simple as purchasing online and sharing a digital (or physical) copy with the lucky giftee. They’ll have over 9,000 experiences to choose from when they’re ready to redeem!

Gifts to boost wellbeing

Spark romance with these unique couples vouchers

Shared experiences make the heart grow fonder, and in the case of gifts for couples, an artisan workshop could be just what a pair needs to take time out and reconnect. Experience vouchers allow the couple to choose an activity they’ve always wanted to try together or something that will encourage them to give a new experience a crack!

For adventurous couples, they might opt for an invigorating night photography course in the city or a welding workshop for beginners. Those searching for romantic ways to celebrate an anniversary could opt for a private cooking class or wine tasting experience—in fact, an anniversary gift card can open up so many intimate and romantic possibilities!

If you’re feeling stuck, it’s best to always remember what couples activities the pair love to do together. If they’re dedicated plant parents, a terrarium or kokedama class might be the pick that’s most meaningful for them. Or if they’re passionate gin lovers, a gin blending masterclass may be the best environment for them to reconnect and make new memories.
