Hannah Belonio

Attended the solid perfume making workshop as a gift to a friend and we loved it. It was so fun learning about how perfumes are made and building our own scents! Especially love how they save our scent and we have the choice of recreating it with other forms like candles and perfume (spray version). We definitely would go back again. The instructors were friendly and knowledgeable and provided clear  + more

Catherine Hammersley

My daughter’s 16th birthday present and I wanted an experience gift that was great value and fun she loved it and was a great opportunity to broaden her art experience in this way as schools aren’t offering this platform.

Cooking class review by Priscilla Khang - Melbourne

Matthew Menzel

I got this class as a birthday gift after really enjoying watching a glass blowing competition on netflix. It was such a great experience and I have some really cool keepsakes! Nick was such a great teacher. He was very supportive and stepped in to give extra help when it was required whilst allowing us to do a much as we were capable of. It was very much worth the expense!

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

It was a birthday present from my partner and it was definitely one of the best present I’ve received. Heecho was such a delight to have as a teacher.

The material was solid and great quality. 100% would recommend couples or friends to do it!

Pottery class review by Kim Truong - Melbourne

Richard Bernard Crewe

This was a Christmas present that my daughter bought me and in return I got her a voucher to. The venue is small, but it was also a small class so no problems. Our teacher Ron gave us our safety gear and talk. As it was only a beginner's class, we did not expect too much, but we made an "S" hook with a twist out of 10mm straight bar. Ron's helping hands and knowledge guided us. Both of us really enjoyed  + more

Jenny Wraight

We attended Merryl's mosaic class as a family Christmas gift activity - 11 people over three generations and each person was able to choose a design they liked and work at their own level and pace.

It was a gift for my friend’s birthday and I also wanted to learn how to make a terrarium. Our teacher was Mark and he answered all my questions and gave us many tips on how to look after it.

I was surprised by my partner as a birthday gift and I totally enjoyed the experience. The hand pottery class was fun, simple and I’ve loved every part of it.

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.
