April 14, 2017 by Julia

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Sure, you can run out to the store and buy mom a bouquet of flowers and a picture frame. You could even get her a box of her favorite chocolates and a card. Here’s a secret: your mom doesn’t want any of those things. What she actually wants is a unique experience. Our Mother’s Day gift guide is filled with live event ideas that will help you create a day your mom will remember for years to come. 


Mother's Day Guide

Your mom would love tickets for any of these events:


A post shared by Billy Joel (@billyjoel) on

Billy Joel - It’s a fact of life – moms love The Piano Man. For the last three decades, Billy Joel has been a force in pop music, and his catalog of hits only continues to grow. Take your mom to this concert and tell her she’s your favorite “Uptown Girl” when you hand over the tickets.  

Neil Diamond - If you’re wondering what to get the mom who loves singing along to the oldies, consider snatching up a pair of Neil Diamond tickets. From “Sweet Caroline” to “I’m a Believer,” Neil Diamond is responsible for some of the biggest hits of the twentieth century. 

Tom Petty - Whether he’s on stage alone or backed by The Heartbreakers, Tom Petty always puts on a memorable show. A pair of Tom Petty tickets makes a great Mother’s Day gift because his music is pure comfort – you can’t stress when you’re sitting in the audience at one of his shows. 


U2 - Bono and the gang are hitting the road for a stadium tour, and you know your mom wants to be there. Now is the time to snatch up tickets! Just be sure to include a set of earplugs when you give her this awesome Mother’s Day gift – this show is sure to get loud. 

Hamilton - If you really want to impress mom this year, consider a pair of Hamilton tickets. The show is currently running on Broadway and in Chicago and San Francisco. 

Wicked - If your mom is a Broadway lover, chances are she loves Wicked. This modern take on a classic fable is always on tour, so there’s a good chance you can see the show soon in a theater near you. 

Jerry Seinfeld - Life gets stressful, so why not sit back, relax and laugh? Jerry Seinfeld is taking his unique brand of standup on tour, and there’s a good chance your mom would love to go. Get her a pair of tickets this Mother’s Day.

Gladys Knight - Mom deserves the best, and no one sings the hits better than Gladys Knight. Whether she’s out on her own or taking the stage with The Pips, you can expect a one-of-a-kind experience. Help mom relive her glory days with this unique Mother Day gift.

P.S. Make sure the gift-giving experience is just as memorable as the gift itself! Learn how to surprise your mom with concert tickets (don’t worry, we included examples).
