Lily Larsen




Got this class as a gift for my mom for her birthday and she absolutely loved it, and so did I! The teacher was amazing and extremely helpful. You have so much creative freedom in how you want to arrange your terrarium and what you want to put in it. Well worth the time and money spent, such a fun experience :)

Frankie Munoz




Mason was amazing and was extremely patient and clear with his instructions. I highly recommend taking the pottery wheel class with him. I took my family here for a surprise birthday gift for my mom and she loved it.

Pottery Class: Intro to Wheel Throwing Seize the Clay review by Frankie Munoz - San Francisco


Karen Barroso




I got this class as a birthday gift for my friend and it was the perfect experience. Brian was a wonderful teacher and created a good environment to learn and have fun. It was both of our first times working with clay and his instructions/demos were great and he had the perfect balance of letting us experiment and guiding us when he saw we needed it. The studio was very comfortable, stylish and his  + more

Wheel Throwing Workshop: Fun with Clay review by Karen Barroso - San Francisco


Riley Hewko




This wood working class was amazing! Our teacher was so knowledgeable, helped us build confidence with machinery, and provided everything we needed! There was a perfect amount of time for us to work together (sharing the machines/discussing which materials to use) but also on our own time to just be present and focus on the beautiful task at hand! Great for new and experienced individuals. Great price  + more

Kendra Willis




I had a great time at the class. I booked this as a birthday present for myself and I had a great time. The instructor, Ann Marie, was really good. She was very patient and took time to explain everything we were doing thoroughly. I will definitely be booking another class in the near future.

Lorie




We just finished a terrarium class at Botanic Panic; it was a (perfect) gift from my daughter. The class was great from start to end. The teacher (and shop owner) was so friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and fun. We ended up with great terrariums; the material's of provided were plentiful. (I tried to attach photos but kept running into problems).


Tony de La Paz




This class was a great Mother’s Day gift experience. Jennifer was a fantastic teacher and quick explaining the basics. Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed themselves.


Apoorva Sooranahalli




Received this workshop as a birthday present from my family. The instructor was very knowledgeable and friendly. Lovely venue, all materials were provided. I loved the experience!


Kyle Doan




My partner and I attended this class using a ClassBento gift card he got me for Christmas. We knew we wanted to do an activity that was unique and different from the typical cooking or fitness classes we typically would use this opportunity for, and this was the perfect choice! Florence and Han were so helpful and welcoming and really made things so easy for us. All of the necessary materials and supplies were provided and we felt very safe and empowered to tackle on the lamp-making. I've never done anything electrical before, so I was a bit intimidated;  + more


Ilene




I bought my partner a ClassBento gift card as a gift and I am so glad he chose this class for us to attend together! The instructor was so well-prepared, encouraging, clear and kind throughout the class. It was clear that he took a lot of care to design the class and give us the best experience possible by buying fresh, organic produce and meats from local markets for our shared cooking experience and meal - the quality of the food was incredible and well worth the cost of the class and the good vibes were an added bonus. We learned how to make  + more


Rod Brathwaite




We got this experience as a gift from my wife, and my two teens and I had an absolutely wonderful time! Eddie was the perfect host and the time just flew by with him sharing the history of the food we were making and the wonderful conversation from the other guests! We learned about how different types of soy sauces are made, and then we did a blind taste-test different soy sauces and it's amazing how they impact the deliciousness (umami) and the overall flavor of the dumplings. I couldn't believe how much we learned and I'm fully confident  + more


Mollie Rowe




The class was very fun! Carrie was very flexible with my groups schedule. I booked this as a gift for my family as a small group and it was a really excellent way to celebrate together.


Annie Marggraff




I highly recommend this class and studio They provide so many quality materials to create exactly what you want to make. The ladies who own and work at the studio are so friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable. Making a succulent wreath was a fantastic gift and experience for my friend and me. I’ll be back!


Mark Stefanski




I got this as a gift and so didn't attend. But I heard it was great.


Michelle Loven




We both thought the class was great. We had good time to work on our own and the teacher was present for questions.


Ciandra Barber




This experience was a an amazing gift from my husband. Rebecca listened to my requests and crafted a learning experience I will not soon forget. The personalized touches were thoughtful and creative. I am so grateful you have found your niche in the industry and are sharing your talents with the world. Salud!


Kim Tran




This was my first ClassBento and it was a great time for me and my youth (15 yr old). Moonshot Studio is located in downtown Noe Valley so parking may be a little tricky but we just parked a little further away and walked in. Our instructor (and owner) was Teresa and she was so sweet, enthusiastic, and informative. It look about 1.5 hours for us to complete our candle-making activity, which is a bit longer than the class was supposed to take but Teresa didn't rush us at all. Once completed, Teresa asked us to either return in 90 mins to pick up  + more

US Workshop Experience Gift Cards


Surprise your loved one with an experience gift card that opens the door to all kinds of fun creative possibilities. Not only will they get to learn from talented local artists and makers, but they'll also support small businesses in their community and across the country. Whether you need a birthday present, a unique Christmas gift, or a gift for a couple, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. Treat your mom to a candle making class or your sister to a perfume workshop as a relaxing activity. If you’re looking for a way to show appreciation for your team, a cocktail making class or paint and sip will make a memorable summer or holiday party. There's something for everyone to nurture a new passion or just spend time with friends.


Types of experience gift cards

Types of Experience Gift Cards

One of the reasons to gift an experience is the chance to let your friend or loved one decide the kind of activity they’d like to try. You can give a hands-on gift like a cooking class where handmade pasta, Thai cuisine, and French pastries are just some of the culinary courses they can take.

If you know someone who has always wanted to develop their artistic skills, you can give them a gift card to sign up for a painting class or a pottery workshop. They can find one that works for their schedule so you don’t have to do the guesswork. Our classes are well-suited for beginners and supplies are included, so all they have to do is show up! They’ll meet other people just starting out or take a class together and bond over a shared activity.

You can give an experience gift to someone who wants to take a food tour or an art walk. This is an immersive time with a local expert and you won’t find this type of present in a big box store. It’s a memorable way to celebrate a birthday or bachelorette party and they’ll appreciate the care you took to find something original.

No matter where you are in the country – from San Francisco to New York City – there are creative experiences to delight all the important people in your life.


How experience gift cards work

How Experience Gift Cards Work

It doesn’t get any easier than giving a gift card for experiences. There are no apps to download or codes to keep track of. When you buy our gift cards, everything is simplified with an email. Have a browse at our classes and choose whatever catches your eye or piques your curiosity.

Instead of generic gift cards, you can send friends and family something that fits their interests. If your co-worker loves flowers, she can learn how to make her own bouquets with a floral arrangement class. Maybe you need a gift for a teacher or assistant. Find a creative experience they’d enjoy from making ceramics to unwinding with a wellness gift like an aromatherapy skincare making class.

Our gift cards are perfect for couples too! If your partner has a passion for arts and culture, you can find art classes that allow them to develop their skills and knowledge. A street art class gives you an insider view with a graffiti artist as a guide. Take it together for the perfect date night. Or perhaps your grandparent loves plants and gardening – a terrarium-making class for two would be the perfect opportunity for them to level up their knowledge while having fun. This is a thoughtful way to show your love and appreciation.


Benefits of experience gift cards

Benefits of Experience Gift Cards

Gift cards offer a unique opportunity to give someone the gift of exploration and self-discovery. Instead of just receiving a material object or a traditional gift, they can try an interest or hobby that can spark a new passion. Whether learning to make their own scented candles or mastering Spanish cooking, your loved one will have the chance to become immersed in a new skill with expert guidance.

One of the greatest advantages of gift experiences is the opportunity to learn from local experts. Our teachers are passionate about what they do and take joy in sharing their knowledge with others. Your mom, sister, or best friend can immerse themselves in creative workshops and gain a new hobby.

While material gifts may provide instant gratification, experiences have longer-lasting benefits. For someone who leads a busy and stressful life, taking time out for themselves to engage in something fun and enjoyable can be incredibly rejuvenating. Whether it's attending a workshop pizza making or exploring meditative pottery, our hands-on experiences cater to all interests and provide an escape to care for your wellbeing.
