November 21, 2012 10:00 ET Offers Ticket Buying Tips for Holiday Shoppers

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwire - Nov 21, 2012) - With the holiday shopping season in full swing, the hunt is on for the perfect gift. "Whether you're shopping for a music lover, sports fanatic, or theater enthusiast, event tickets are a creative and memorable option," recommends Colin Crowley, customer advocate at online marketplace

To help consumers give the gift of live entertainment this season, offers these ticket buying tips:

1. Shop for tickets together.
Get out your laptop or tablet, and browse together. Your loved one can weigh in on important factors like which event to attend, what dates to consider, and where to sit. They'll have fun, and you'll rest easy knowing your gift is a perfect fit.

2. Give them something to unwrap.
Some tickets aren't ready to be shipped until a few weeks before the event, but a gift note still gives you something to slip in their stocking. Whether handmade or provided by, a gift note tells the recipient that something extraordinary is on its way and reminds them to "save the date."

3. Treat yourself.
Not every gift purchased during the holiday season has to be for someone else. Treat yourself to a pair of must-have tickets that you can enjoy with a friend or family member of your choice.

4. Get your family in the holiday spirit.
A wide variety of holiday-themed events means there's something for everyone to enjoy. With's 2012 Holiday Events Guide you can find the right tickets for a night out with your entire family.
