They say you’ve got a one in 175 million chance of winning the lottery.
You know what’s better? Scratch-off lottery tickets.
This Christmas season has been jam-packed for J and I, and we’ve been trying to surprise each other with little goodies and treats now and again to show we care. Especially when it gets dark before 5 pm on the East Coast, it’s easy to feel pretty blah and down in the dumps once work ends. From bringing home surprise takeout to picking up favorite snacks and new socks or work accessories, a little bit of thoughtfulness can go a long way when it comes to brightening up the dark days of winter.
Every significant other loves the chance to get lucky, so I stocked up on Holiday-themed Instant Games from the New Jersey Lottery. With four themes to choose from (the $1 Holiday Cheer, $2 Holiday Luck Times 10, $5 Holiday Sparkle, and $10 Season’s Gold), they’re the perfect thing to pick up and gift this season (to anyone over 18 on your list, naturally).
Whether that’s doing what we’re doing and going for the simple spontaneity all the way up to Christmas morning, or stuffing stockings and decking the tops of presents with scratch-off tickets, a surefire win is enabling everyone you love to get lucky (especially since they’ve been doling out the dough on gifts since Black Friday). And prizes range from $2 to $1,000,000, so #yesplease.
J and I turned NJ Lottery tickets into a date night in and of themselves (one of the 12 dates of Christmas, maybe?) and made a whopper 6 bucks – that’s Saturday Starbucks money if ya ask me!
They’re affordable, fun, and completely unique when it comes to gift ideas in my book. And you guys know how I like me some unique Christmas gift ideas.
What would you do if you won on an NJ Lottery Holiday Instant ticket?
Pick up a few lottery tickets at a Wawa or 7-11 the next time you’re grabbing a snack or slushie…cos you and yours might be the next million dollar babies. (;
Kick off your weekend with this fun DIY to top off (literally) your perfect money-making gifts!
