I absolutely LOVED my private Cricut class with Sez. I have had my Cricut Maker for a couple of years and haven't been confident in using it for much more than cards. My daughters gave me a mothers day gift voucher to do another ClassBento class (Terrarium) and I loved it so much. I saw the Cricut Classes on offer when booking that class so I decided to use my birthday money I was given to book  + more

Introductory Glassblowing Workshop review by Matthew Menzel - Melbourne

Lorena Talavera Priale

Got this as my Christmas present from my partner and we went together. We had lots of fun, the tools were easy to use. I do think it's better to come to the class with a couple of ideas of what you want to make. There are some samples but that was probably the hardest bit. You get to have a few attempts and the class includes one ring but if you liked more than one you get to buy another one at a good  + more

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.
