Your friend loves the band. The band's having a concert. And you, being a great friend, bought the tickets as a birthday gift. Since small pieces of cardboard don't really tell the story, try one of these creative gift-giving ideas: Give your friend a CD of the band's music with a note about the tickets. Or take one of your favorite lyrics from the band, format it in a desktop publishing program, and present it in a beautifully wrapped gift box. You could also take a photo of the concert venue and create a "teaser" that makes your friend guess what special event is in his or her future.
