This will be a sure surprise to the newlyweds that will stand out from one of the registry items or a check! With these gift experiences, you can give them the opportunity to spend quality time together, learn something new and practical, and ignite a passion.

Whether there is nothing left on the registry for you to choose from or you want to give the new couple something unforgettable, an experience gift is a great option that will create a memorable day. They’ll never forget this wedding gift, and you don’t have to worry about accidentally purchasing the same thing as someone else!

From cooking to craft classes, there are a variety of creative workshops for any kind of couple. Whether they are homebodies who love a night in for themselves or they love to go out in the Bay Area for an urban adventure, there’s something for everyone. If you’re stuck on where to start, check out this list of experience gift ideas for couples! 

Treat the nature lovers to a terrarium building class

Know a couple that always seems to be posting their latest adventure with serene landscapes and natural beauty on social media? Allow them to bring their love of the outdoors, indoors with a DIY terrarium. In a terrarium workshop, they will create gorgeous miniature gardens with their favorite plants and decorations. A handmade creation made together will make meaningful additions to their home or apartment. 

This fun craft and gardening class makes DIY easy. You’ll have an experienced instructor to guide you step by step through the process, and give you plant care tips and insight so you can feel like a confident plant parent after the class finishes. Once the happy couple has their finished terrariums, they can bring their handmade terrariums to their office, as a subtle reminder of each other, or show them off as a centerpiece on a dining table for all their houseguests to admire.

Learn new recipes to take home in a cooking class

Adjusting to married life can be a challenge. It can be hard to find time to spend with your partner on a daily basis. Cooking together makes it easy! Whether the newly married couple is seasoned home chefs or kitchen novices, there is always something to learn in a cooking class. 

In these cooking classes in the Bay Area, they’ll be able to cook cuisine from their favorite restaurants. From Thai food to pizza making, there are so many new recipes to try. By the end of class, they’ll have more confidence in the kitchen, cooking tips from a professional chef, and recipes to take home with them. 

This will allow them to save a little money in the long run and create healthier meals. Instead of ordering another round of take-out, they can shop for fresh ingredients and spend some time recreating the recipes from their cooking class at home. After this class, they’ll look forward to making meals together every evening.

Try a new hobby together

While you could gift the newlyweds a fancy piece of furniture from their online registry, make it more meaningful by treating them to a craft class where they can DIY their own furniture and home decor. This will allow them to bring something unifying and long-lasting into their home. 

Try everything from learning how to make a chunky knit blanket to finishing off a table in a wood working class. Invite them to pottery classes in the Bay Area and they can work on beautiful home goods like hand built mugs, vases, and dinner wear. 

Maybe they’ll even discover a new creative hobby! Hands-on hobbies are great for your mental wellbeing and will allow your to release stress, relax, and challenge yourself all at the same time. And a shared hobby with your partner is a great way to find time together and grow with your newfound passion. 

Spend quality time in a cocktail-making class

You might get drinks with your partner all the time, but you can easily turn this outing into a special occasion with cocktail-making classes in the Bay Area. If your friends love to host parties or get together for happy hour, now they can learn to up their game with a cocktail-making class. 

Treat the newlyweds to a lively night of delicious beverages and meaningful time together. Trying new things and a shared experience will allow the couple to grow closer and spark new and interesting conversation. Date nights for married couples don’t have to be boring, especially with these offerings!

In these cocktail-making classes in the Bay Area, you will learn from an experienced instructor who will teach you everything from how to master your classic cocktails to specialty ingredients and unique cocktail recipes. A mixology workshop will allow them to brush up on their drink-making skills, learn new recipes, and learn new tips from a professional. After this class, they’ll surely invite you over for thank you cocktails and to show off their new skills.

Let loose with a painting class

With busy schedules, it can be hard to cut out time for yourself to be creative and relax. Remind the newlyweds to take some time for themselves with painting classes in the Bay Area. From learning how to paint with watercolors to Paint and Sip events, there is so many types of classes to choose from.

With a Paint and Sip class, your social friends can get together with other creatives, drink a glass of wine or two, and learn an easy-to-follow painting lesson. With something like a watercolor painting class, they can learn new painting techniques in a more calm and mindful environment. Or treat them to an acrylic pouring class, where they can get a little messy with some abstract art. 

Regardless of the painting class you choose for them, they’ll appreciate the opportunity to spend a relaxing evening with their spouse. The newlyweds will also leave with beautiful handmade art they can hang in their home as a reminder of the day spent together.
