If you are having trouble figuring out what to get someone on your holiday showing list, I would like to help you out. There are 3 events happening in 2023 that are already asking you to save the date. All three would make a great experience gift for that hard-to-buy person on your list.

When I first saw the events being publicized I thought they were getting a little ahead of themselves but then I thought hey tickets to any one of these events would be a whole lot of fun and now that we know they are happening in 2023 why not buy tickets now for a holiday gift.
