So, you’ve taken your time and selected tickets to the perfect event. Now, you aren’t sure how to give the tickets for maximum effect. Surprise and a dash of humor are the key ingredients. Sentimentality is optional. While you’ve been busy shopping, we’ve been busy studying the very best ways to give tickets and experiences as presents.
1. You’ve Been Served!
The person who likes to be naughty and nice deserves to be served with their Christmas gift. A la Punk’d, have a co-worker or unfamiliar person serve the recipient with papers demanding they appear at the award show or event. You get to hide out and watch their reaction go from shock to delight as they realize what the gift is.
2. Picture This
Pictures are full of symbolism and secret messages. Conceal your true plans in a framed picture or photo album. You could put the tickets in the frame. Or even better, hide them in the back and use a photo of you or your adorable child with a sign that says something like “You and me @ the SAG Awards “or “See you at the Emmys.”
