US Workshop Experience Gift Cards


If you’re on the lookout for a unique gift and coming up short, treat your special someone with an experience gift card that gives them access to 2,000+ creative experiences! This is a fantastic way to learn from local artisans and makers while supporting small businesses in your community and across the US. You’ll find a plethora of possibilities, whether you’re looking for birthday presents, Christmas ideas, gifts for couples, and more. If your sister is dabbling in DIY crafts or your partner has a new interest in learning photography, you’ll find a workshop to help them develop their passions.


Why experience vouchers make the best gift ideas

Everyone has an interest they want to explore, whether it’s your bestie who collects dreamy scented candles or your co-worker who is interested in Spanish cooking. With a gift experience, you can help them follow their bliss by taking a deep dive into a new skill so your friend can make her own soy candles or your colleague can learn new tapas recipes. The best part is learning from a local expert and meeting new people. Our teachers love sharing their knowledge and helping others fall in love with a creative experience. Plus, taking the time to make connections is important to a person’s mental well-being.

Material gifts give instant gratification, but experiences have deeper, longer-lasting benefits. If you know someone who works long hours and could use a break to do something fun and meaningful, a workshop could be just the thing they need to relax and destress. Whether they’re leveling up their cooking skills at a pizza making class or taking their first steps into meditative pottery workshop, we have hands-on experiences for every type of interest.

We also offer hundreds of online classes that let you learn from home. Shake up your cocktail game or learn resin art with virtual workshops. You’ll get DIY craft kits with all the supplies or ingredients you need to follow along. It couldn’t get any easier!


Personalised experience gifts for her and him

Whenever you need gifts for mom or ideas for your best friend, it’s easy to fall into the same giving routine. If you’re tired of giving flowers, chocolate, and gift cards to retail stores, a gift of experience is the perfect way to show your appreciation. They can choose a workshop they’ve always wanted to try, like pottery, jewelry making, arm knitting, and more.

Does your partner have an interest in street art? You can find classes that let him develop his skills with a graffiti artist as a guide. Is your grandparent a plant lover? Help them level up their knowledge with a fun terrarium making class. Maybe your sister has always been curious about making macrame wall art. You can take a class together and leave with a cool project you made in a day. Everyone comes away from these experiences with new skills and fond memories.

From San Francisco to New York City, you’ll find creative experiences to delight all the important people in your life. All it takes is some imagination and the willingness to try something new.


Thoughtful experience gifts for couples

No matter if they are newlyweds or partners for 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, giving them a gift card will let them select from craft classes, culinary courses, and creative experiences across the country.

Workshop experiences are versatile gifts for any occasion. If your friends are getting married, why not bring something different to the wedding shower with a cooking experience from a culinary school? Or if your parents have a milestone anniversary coming up, why not make a group booking for a virtual paint and sip class or an online mixology class to help everyone celebrate no matter where they are? You can’t go wrong with our workshops.

Of course, if you want to give them something more intimate, they can use their gift card to choose cute date night ideas. From body painting to chocolate and wine tasting, they can explore a totally new activity they’d never thought to try!
