Skip The Mall, Concert Tickets Are The Best Last Minute Christmas Present

It’s not up for debate. Concert tickets are the best Christmas present. This could include the actual concert tickets, the flight to the concert or gas gift cards for the road trip there, and/or hotel room confirmations (paid in advance).

Blame it on the fact that I’m a millennial or that I have a concert addiction, but I do not want material gifts. I want experiences and what better experience is there than a concert? If you can’t already tell, my love language is definitely quality time. I would rather do something with you than have you buy something for me. What better way to spend quality time with someone than at a concert?

It’s really a win-win. You buy two concert tickets to give to the person, but obviously let them know you will be using the second ticket. You are buying your own present and acting like you were just thinking of them. One for me, one for you. Simple as that.

All of the winter tours have already been announced. You could be seeing a show as soon as January 3rd or maybe it becomes something to look forward to months down the road. So, they get to be really excited when they receive the gift, but also will be really excited when the day of the concert arrives. The gift that keeps on giving.

Let’s face it. Christmas is less than one week away. Do you really want to be fighting the crowds in malls and department stores looking for some material gift they will use or wear once and then throw away? Just order the tickets from your phone or laptop and call it a day. You just saved yourself a lot of time and frustration. You don’t even have to pay $100 for express shipping for it to arrive on time.

I could go on and on, but by now I think you should be ready to start looking up the shows in your area so you can buy tickets. No one will know that you waited until the last minute. And, it’s okay if you choose a show that you really want to see instead of thinking about who you’re giving the tickets to.

It’s the thought that counts, right?
