Now don't get me wrong, I would love to go to a Dua Lipa concert, even if I could barely see her from my seat. But there's just something so special about smaller, more intimate shows — like the ones featured on Fever Up. Unlike events at massive venues where you have to look at a screen to see the performers, these shows are up-close and personal.
If you want to get your loved ones a unique or experiential gift, consider taking them to see a show or participate in an event this holiday season. From theatrical performances to roller disco brunch (!!), there are a handful of super fun options to choose from.
