Creative Ways To Gift Them

Here are our first 11 creative ways to gift scratch tickets – PICTURES BELOW:

  1. Put the scratch ticket in a card or small gift box and present it as a traditional gift. This is a the basic way to give the gift of a scratch ticket.
  2. Use the scratch ticket as part of a scavenger hunt. Write clues or riddles on small pieces of paper and hide them around the house or outdoors. Each clue will lead the recipient to the next one, and the final clue will reveal the location of the scratch ticket.
  3. Incorporate the scratch ticket into a larger gift. For example, you could put the scratch ticket in a gift basket with other small gifts, like chocolates or a candle.
  4. Create a scratch ticket bouquet. Cut out small squares of paper and write the numbers of the scratch tickets on them. Arrange the squares in a bouquet and wrap them in cellophane or tissue paper to create a unique and fun gift.
  5. Make a game out of it. For example, you could put the scratch ticket in a small envelope and include a list of questions or tasks that the recipient must complete in order to earn the right to scratch the ticket.
  6. Create a scratch ticket advent calendar. Number small envelopes or boxes and place a scratch ticket in each one. The recipient can open one envelope or box each day leading up to a special occasion, like Christmas or a birthday.
  7. Incorporate the scratch ticket into a party favor or goodie bag. For example, you could include a scratch ticket with other small items like candy or toys as a thank-you gift for guests at a party.
  8. Use the scratch ticket as a prize in a game or contest. For example, you could hold a raffle or a trivia game and offer the scratch ticket as the prize for the winner.
  9. Hide the scratch ticket around the house or outdoors and create a treasure hunt for the recipient to find it. You could write clues or riddles to help them locate the ticket.

Lottery Ticket Birthday Gift Idea

lottery ticket gift basket ideas for 30th 40th 50th 60th 70th birthdays - 30 sucks gift basket with scratch off tickets and blow pop lollipops in plastic Dollar Tree plastic box all made on a budget

At last years family reunion Christmas thing, we wanted a way to help Mom cover the costs of food and all the money she spent hosting our get-together.

We decided to raffle something off that EVERYONE would totally want.

BUT, coming up with GOOD raffle prizes for adults is not that easy.

My sister-in-law came up with THIS great idea – a lottery ticket WREATH.

Here’s what it looked like….

lottery ticket gift wreath we raffled off at Christmas family reunion potluck party

and here’s what the sign at the bottom of the wreath says in case you can’t read it:

Scratch Off Ticket Wreath: $10 a ticket = Winner gets entire wreath! Over $100 in Scratch Off tickets – You Could Win MILLIONS!

Let me tell ya something – not only did we raise enough money to pay for that lottery ticket wreath, AND pay mom for every penny she spent, we also raised enough to cover THIS year’s Christmas get together…

and you can bet that we WILL be doing this idea again!

They went NUTS over trying to win it!

To make that lottery ticket gift wreath, just grab a cheap-o wire wreath frame like one of these.

Or you can use a foam wreath thing like this from your local Dollar Tree and then CAREFULLY attach the scratch off tickets all around it.

Be careful to not put tape anywhere on the scratch off ticket that could damage it and potentially void a winner.

Here’s a quick video that shows how to make a lottery ticket gift wreath like we made:

Here’s another lottery ticket gift we had the BEST time making… and GIVING.

A group of us have been really tight friends for a long time (before any of our current spouses).

One of our friends had recently gone through a tough divorce…had to move out, get his own place, etc.

Needless to say, it was not only emotionally traumatic, but FINANCIALLY traumatic as well.

When he moved into his new place, we decided to throw a party for him to help welcome and celebrate this new chapter in his life.

It was kind of a Housewarming Happy Divorce type of hybrid color party haha!

We wanted to find a gift idea that could help him with his current financial situation but NOT be offensive (if that makes sense).

So we made this…

Lottery Ticket Gift we made as a divorce housewarming party gift for a friend

We called it ‘The Great Wall of Lottery Tickets‘ haha!

We set it on a big table surrounded by all the party food and snacks for our group and it looked SUPER awesome.

He LOVED it – and yep, he ended up making a couple hundred bucks off those gift scratch off tickets too!

To make that Great Wall of Lottery Tickets, we just used one of those poster board things kids use for science projects like this.

Then we attached the scratch off tickets as you see in the picture above.

At the bottom, we put airplane size bottles of adult beverages and money-themed mini candy bars ( like Payday and 100 Grand bars, etc).

It’s a big and showy lottery ticket gift idea yet it’s PERFECT if you’re on a budget!

We’ve also made TONS of 40th birthday gifts with lottery tickets.

Here’s a few we’ve made for the guys and for the gals on their 40th birthday…

YES, teachers LOVE scratch off tickets too!

I like to combine those appreciation gifts for the kid’s teachers with flowers AND lottery scratcher tickets – I think they’ve turned out really pretty!
