Stuck for last-minute gift ideas?

Stuck for last minute gift ideas? Consider a pair of tickets, which are easy to wrap and can be stuffed neatly into stockings.

Some thoughts:

For your edgy cousin…tickets to the even-edgier improv acrobats 500 Clown, coming to the Center for the Performing Arts. Details here.

For your I-only-like-musicals aunt…tickets to Sandi Patty and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra's "Hello, Dolly! in Concert." Details here.

For your brother in law who loves comedy but isn't really into theater…tickets to Mike Birbiglia's "My Grilfriend's Boyfriend" at Clowes Hall. Details here.

For your Gen Con-attending cousin…tickets to "The Intergalatic Nemesis," a live musical comic book creation at Ball State Theatre. Details here.

For your potty-mouthed grown-up sister with a heart of gold…tickets to the return of "Avenue Q" at the Phoenix Theatre. Details here.

For the "Glee"-loving teen…tickets to Actors Theatre of Indiana's "Godspell." Details here.

For the opera lover in your life…tickets to see Maureen O'Flynn in "Faust"  and/or hear her in concert at the Cabaret at the Columbia Club. Details here and here.

For anybody…tickets to Bill Cosby at the Palladium. Details here.

None of these quite the right fit? Then give a season subscription to the Indiana Repertory Theatre, the Indianpolis Chamber Orchestra, or any of dozens of other arts companies. Or how about a membership to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Eiteljorg, or the Indiana History Center?

You get the idea.

As for me, well, the only thing on my list is that you take a look at the Dec. 26 editon of IBJ or visit over the weekend to see my list of the best things I saw in 2011.

Happy holidays.
