We loved our tufting class, a wonderful way to spend a rainy day in Sydney (with a great view of the Chinese Friendship Gardens & close proximity to Chinatown for a meal after all your hard tufting work). Linda was a very helpful teacher, imparting her wisdom and then taking a step back when we felt confident. This is an excellent gift or date idea!

Kate Fiumara

I bought this as a Christmas present for my Dad and he really loved it! Nathan was a fantastic teacher, he was able to explain and correct us so that we both learned a lot by the end of the lesson.

The Ashleys

This class was a pre-COVID gift and Setsuko has been wonderful in allowing us to reschedule a few times. She is so generous in sharing her knowledge and skills. We had a lot of fun creating our arrangements and learning how to improve them. There was a wonderful variety of flowers to choose from so our creativity was truly fostered.

Marcus Haines

I got the class as a birthday present and went with a mate. Even though I've been into BBQ and smoking for a few years, I still learnt a new skills. The teacher had a lot of experience in big commercial events and catering; he knew his stuff. The venue was basic, but you don't need much for BBQ. The food cooked was delicious and the beers they had were also really good. A couple of crafty ones including  + more

Nicole Poblete

The class was a gift from my sister in Canada to my daughter who is 12. I came as well thinking 5hrs was a long time for her to be alone but she would have been fine. The teachers were super helpful and the technique was easy to pick up. My one regret was not picking a harder design for myself as I thought it would turn out bad, it being my first attempt and all. There was also a good amount of colours  + more

Dionne Hunter

The Kids Graffiti Class was a Christmas present for my 8 year old nephew, who has a strong creative drive and loves to draw. The idea was to give him some exposure to other ways of expressing himself through graffiti techniques - and he learnt so much in 90mins! He loved the idea of designing his own spray can and getting to take it home. His dad has now given him a section of the garage wall to use  + more

Fluid Art class review by Shyleen Hewlett - Sydney

Grace Gilpin

I bought this class for my best friends birthday and can I say it did not disappoint! Polly was an absolute lovely human who taught us all about natural hair care products, essential oils and so so much more. I felt at ease in the classroom (which was beautiful btw) and I loved how passionate she is about natural skincare! It was so worth it, I left feeling inspired to be more natural in the products  + more

Natural Skincare Making Workshop review by Grace Gilpin - Sydney

Meg Galvin

Bhavna, our cooking instructor, was so lovely and knowledgeable about Indian food and the history behind the cuisine and the spices. I loved the way she involved us in the cooking process and we each got to make a dish.

Pottery class review by Vera Manalac - Sydney

Rebekah Page

Bought as a gift for my daughter (also bought myself one!) the teachers were helpful and informative. The venue was quaint, the workspace however a little small for each person. We both made two rings one “stacker” ring and then a thicker silver ring. My daughter and I both enjoy crafting classes and this would definitely be one to do again.

Gold or Silver Ring Making Class review by Rebekah Page - Sydney

Andrew Mills

Specifics: It's held in a proper art room/studio room. There was about 12 of us total in our session groups of 2 and 3. Both hosts who run the event are super easy and nice but really engaging and help you get the hang of it. We stayed back afterwards and chatted about starting some resin projects at home and they are genuinely happy to give advice and make recommendations and show what they do on  + more

This was a fantastic class.

Cara was an absolute delight! She has so much knowledge and passion for mindfulness and Tea. It is a great combination and lovely way to spend a couple of hours with loved ones.

Tea experience review by Rachel Anderson - Sydney

Tammy Luk

I purchased this experience with Henry for a dear friend as a Christmas gift as she had always been interested in having bees of her own.

Henry created a relaxed environment for everyone and took the time to explain all of the processes and parts of bee keeping and happily answered any questions or curiosities you had.  + more

Gardening class review by Tammy Luk - Sydney

Andrea & Peter

The teacher Yvette was very lovely and gave clear instructions on different methods of handling a brush and colour mixing. The venue was great with plenty of space to work and everything was available to enable us to do a painting. We all took home a "masterpiece". I did my first abstract painting. It is always good to meet other budding artists. This was a birthday present from my kids and I  + more

Joseph was phenomenal! He was the best teacher, with insightful knowledge about chocolate. This class was a birthday present from my girlfriends and I took my partner along; It was enjoyable and educational, and not knowing what to expect, it turned out to be a fantastic experience. Aside from the final result of the chocolate truffles, Joseph was the highlight, so much so that I have already recommended  + more

We had an absolute ball during our ring making session! It was a surprise gift for my best friends, and they were thrilled! The pace of the class was excellent, and our teacher was wonderful.

Nickolaus Leonardos

I bought this as a gift for Father’s Day to do as an experience with my dad. It was an awesome afternoon learning how to prepare and cook an American style bbq.

This amazing gift was purchased for my mother and mother in law for mother’s day and it was honestly the highlight of our weekend. Nikki was such a lovely host and very knowledgeable.

We ended up with a few pieces each to take home. It was a  + more

Great gift “experience” or date idea. Never appreciated flowers until we did this class. Super beginner friendly. Went with my partner. Want to come back again with mum next time. Mini road trip from Sydney. Good spot to get brunch at the cafe next door just before the workshops.

Seasonal Vase Arrangement Workshop review by Edmund Xian - Sydney

Brett Clements

The BBQ Seafood class was great. As someone who didn’t feel comfortable cooking seafood on the BBQ I tended to shy away from this. However, after completing this class I feel I have the confidence to give this a red hot go. The teacher was great explaining the process and demonstrating some tips on how to prep the food well, particularly squid and prawns. A receipe book for the four items we cooked  + more

Seafood BBQ Cooking Class review by Brett Clements - Sydney


To start the only negative thing I can say has to do with the parking which is not readily available. The rest…let’s start with the teacher; Alía was amazing and friendly and taking us all on a step by step journey and was great. The place was pretty good and the things that we needed were readily available. It was a great Father’s Day present and one that I will always treasure as it was my  + more

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class: Make a Ceramic Piece review by Christina Tsangaris - Sydney

Pearl Cheung

This was such a relaxing class, perfect to wind down and get creative. The teacher was really patient and guided on how best place the flowers down, but just like pancakes, the first one always comes out a little wonky. But once you get the hang of it, it becomes really fun and easy. Heaps of scents and flowers to choose from, so you really get to experiment with what you like. Best part is you get  + 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.
