Best Gift Idea Ever: The Experience


Did 2017 fly by in a blink of an eye or is it just me? Whew! This has been a big year for my family. My husband Chandler recently landed a completely unexpected and awesome new job, so I want to give him a truly special gift to celebrate and show my appreciation for his extreme hard work.

After thinking long and hard about what in the heck I could get him (why are husbands/boyfriends SO hard to buy for?) I decided I wanted to do something different. When Stubhub gave me the opportunity to gift tickets in a creative, special way, I knew it was a sign and I jumped on it!


I know what you’re thinking – a piece of paper in a card is so impersonal! Trust me, there are so many fun ways to incorporate the tickets. Today I’m sharing a couple ideas that are quick and easy

  1. Wrap a couple of ‘event’ themed items together in a box with a little note. If you have additional time, try wrapping the box in brown parchment paper and adding a touch of white/colored splattered paint to the outside. This is my favorite way to easily wow the friends and family – you look so professional!
  2. Incorporate the items + tickets into a stocking. Sometimes the simplest is the best. I grabbed a football ornament and fun themed candy items for Chandler’s gift. On Christmas day, he’s going to be so excited.

Gifting an experience is unexpected and will create life long memories. As I get older, the memories become so much more important. I can’t wait to see the look on his face when he opens the tickets!



So if you’re looking for a unique gift or a gift for those who hard to buy for, try checking Stubhub for one of the many amazing concert or sporting events in your area. You could even make a getaway out of it! #bothofuswinning
