Why the Best Gifts for Mom Are Cool Experiences

When you want to show her how much you care, gift experiences for Mom take your gift-giving game to the next level. Whether you are searching for unique Mother's Day gift ideas or birthday gifts for mom, experience gifts are the way to go. When you opt for giving the gift of experience instead of going the traditional wrapped present route, you're giving her something expansive that directly impacts her long-term wellbeing. At our Bay Area arts, crafts, and cooking workshops, mom will get the chance to learn new skills, make memories, and possibly even discover a new favorite hobby she can keep developing long after the workshop ends. 

No matter what interests and passions your mom have, one of our hands-on workshops is bound to make the perfect gift. She can try her hand at cooking different cuisines from around the world, such as learning how to make homemade pasta at an Italian cooking class. She can create her own one-of-a-kind custom scent at a perfume making workshop. She can learn how to paint, draw, or make pottery at home. With so many options for creative Bay Area activities to try, our workshops can ignite your mom's curiosity and inspire her to try new things, which helps her grow as a person. 

If you're curious to know why experience gifts make cool gifts for mom, read on! 

She can experience the best things to do in the Bay Area

The Bay Area is known worldwide for being a hub for creativity, both in an artistic and culinary sense. At our wide range of arts, crafts, and cooking workshops, your mom can experience her city and community in new and exciting ways. While it can be fun to visit art museums and restaurants in San Francisco, booking her into one of our workshops will give her the chance to visit the smaller, off-the-beaten-path spots where local makers make magic happen every day. 

Our classes take place in fun locations like pottery studios in Sonoma and restaurant kitchens in downtown Berkeley. Mom will love visiting these spots because it gives her an up-close and personal look at her city, which will make her feel more connected and part of the community. Our teachers are friendly and welcoming, fostering a sense of community in their classes - that's why it's not uncommon for new friendships to form!

She can make original, handmade home decor at arts and crafts workshops

When it comes to useful gifts for mom, presents like candles, bodycare products, and art for the walls of her home typically come to mind. It's nice to give mom a gift that she's likely to use on the regular, not just enjoy on the special day that she unwraps it. That's where our arts, crafts, and cooking classes come in. Gift experiences for mom take things to the next level by giving her the opportunity to make something special that she can take home and put to use in her life. 

Whether she is crafting sweet-smelling homemade soap or making gorgeous wall art at a paint and sip class, our creative workshops give mom the chance to infuse her home with things she made herself, that she can be proud of.

She can try out a creative pursuit she's always been curious about

There's no denying it: a mom's life is busy. Has your mom, like so many, focused most of her time and attention on the wellbeing of her loved ones? Then it's time to give back with DIY gifts for mom that will connect her to untapped reserves of creativity and artistry. If she has spoken, even offhandedly, about her desire to learn pottery making or how to take good pictures with an iPhone, now is the time to show her how much you care by booking her into a workshop as an experience gift. 

We get that sometimes it can feel intimidating or overwhelming to try out a new creative activity. One of the best parts about our workshops is that our teachers pride themselves on creating warm and welcoming environments where it feels safe to try out new things. Almost all of our experiences are beginner-friendly, and the intention is to have fun and explore.

She can spend quality time with her favorite people

Gift experiences for mom give her the chance to get out and enjoy fun, novel experiences with her favorite people - whether that's you, her friends, or her spouse! After two years spent mostly indoors, it's a great feeling to connect with loved ones again. Our classes provide plenty of opportunities for Bay Area activities that will be sure to ease mom's lockdown blues. 

Trying new things is a great way to make memories that last. If you're looking for cool gifts for mom that will get her out of the house and sharing in fun times with her favorite people, our arts, crafts, and cooking workshops are a great choice. If staying in is her jam, we have plenty of online classes that she can take from the comfort of home, while connecting with friends and family virtually.

She can feel empowered by developing new skills

When you give your mom experience gifts, you're also giving her the feeling of pride and satisfaction that comes from the act of doing and making. Of course, she gets the enjoyment of an afternoon spent at a fun class, and the tangible takeaway of whatever it is she made, but she also gets something lasting - a feeling of empowerment. Treating mom to an Indian cooking class is likely to inspire her to continue cooking out of her comfort zone, and taking a resin art workshop may very well open her up to the idea that she can be a great artist, even if that's not a thought she's considered before.

The bottom line is that, while you may see her as Superwoman, sometimes mom can forget just how awesome she is. Gift experiences for mom that allow her to tap into her creativity are the best gifts of all because they help her experience herself in new and exciting ways.
