US Workshop Experience Gift Cards

If you’re looking for the perfect experience gift cards for that special someone in your life, close those online shopping tabs and give them something they’ll always remember with a local creative workshop! Led by talented local artists and makers throughout the United States, you’ll discover unique gift experiences to suit anyone’s tastes. Whether mom’s a mixology master or dad’s been dabbling with digital photography, gifting an experience is a great way to help your loved ones pursue their passion. They also make unique Christmas ideas, thoughtful wedding favors or even alternative anniversary gifts - a creative class for couples is a great way to discover new things to do together!

Why experience vouchers make the best gift ideas

Everyone has something that makes them tick - maybe your best friend is a candle connoisseur, or your brother has an affinity for art. Instead of buying them another jar candle or canvas to hang on the wall, why not gift them an experience and let them feel the joy of creation first hand? From sushi-making in San Francisco to pottery classes in Portland, our workshop experience gift cards are a brilliant way to encourage your nearest and dearest to connect with the vibrant creative community right on their doorstep.

While getting material gifts gives a brief rush of endorphins as we unwrap the shiny new thing, experiences have deeper, longer lasting benefits. If you know someone who works way too hard and could use a break, a workshop gift could be just the excuse they need to relax, destress and focus on doing something creative. Whether they’re leveling up their cooking skills at a vibrant vegan cooking class, or taking their first foray into the meditative world of calligraphy, we have classes all over the United States that’ll give their wellbeing a well-deserved boost.

If their lifestyle is just too busy to fit in a creative workshop, or they live too far away from a class that catches their eye, not to worry: our experience gift cards also work against our huge array of online and live-streaming classes too! Whether they’re a country dweller with a taste for cocktails or a new mom who wants a way to unwind, they’ll discover virtual classes to stimulate their senses from across the country - and beyond! With professional quality materials delivered to their door, there’s never been a better time to give a creative experience gift.

Personalised experience gifts for her and him

When it comes to looking for gifts for women, it’s all too easy to fall back on old standards: flowers, chocolate, perfume. Well, forget the tired stereotypes and try something different with experience gifts for her! With a growing range of creative classes everywhere from LA to New York City, we’ve made it easy to find unique birthday gifts, Christmas presents, or anniversary ideas for any of the lucky ladies in your life. By letting her learn to arrange flowers, make homemade chocolate, or even blend her own signature perfume, you’ll not only be supporting local businesses across America but saving the planet at the same time - pretty nifty!

The same is true of finding gifts for guys: as the old saying goes, “what do you get as gifts for the man who has everything?” Well, a workshop experience is a good start! Whether your boyfriend is a budding bartender or you have a green-fingered grandpa, finding personalized gifts for men is as easy as picking something you think they’d love from our ever-growing list of some of the best experience gifts. No matter where he lives, from San Fran to San Antonio, the lucky fella will get to pick a venue and a time that suits him, or even opt for an online class if travel is a no-go - virtual paint party, anyone? Whatever you opt for, workshop experiences are brilliant gifts for men with a creative streak, letting them explore their interests and lift their mood - you can’t say that about yet another pair of socks!

Thoughtful experience gifts for couples

No matter if they’re a pair of soon-to-be newlyweds or a partnership that’s lasted decades, workshop experiences make for ideal gifts for couples, too! Whether they’re adventurous types who love trying new things or have a shared hobby that brought them together in the first place, a ClassBento gift card will let them select from locally-run art classes, culinary courses and creative experiences across America.

Workshop experiences make for unique and versatile gifts for any occasion. If your closest companions are getting hitched, why not bring something different to the wedding shower with a cooking experience from one of the best culinary schools in California? Or if your parents have a special anniversary coming up, why not make a group booking for a virtual paint and sip class to help everyone celebrate the big day no matter where they are? The possibilities are endless!

Of course, if you want something more intimate, they also make for cute date night ideas when you’re just starting out. Picking a couple’s class to do together will help you learn a little more about each other, start a shared hobby and have some romantic fun in the heart of the city! Who knows? A couples’ creative workshop could be the start of something beautiful.
