Finding gifts for everyone to enjoy can be down right overwhelming to me. I have found something that’s made this gift giving tradition a little easier and fun for everyone. This holiday season, consider incorporating Arkansas Scholarship Lottery scratch off cards into your gift giving mix.

How do you do that? The options are endless, but for starters, I’ve compiled a list of my 10 Easy and Fun Ways to Use Lottery Tickets This Holiday Season. You know, for those instances when you need a little somethin’ somethin’ to add to what you have already wrapped or you want to share a holiday happy with someone who makes your life better?

We all have that one friend who seems to have everything. This adorable Lucky Girl mug I spotted at the Paul Michael Company is the perfect match for a few lottery tickets that will have any bestie feeling lucky.

2. Stocking Stuffersfun easy stocking stuffers with scratch card lottery tickets

Stockings can get full, but there’s always room to slide some scratch off lottery tickets in there with all those necessities Santa has noticed you’ve needed like socks, underwear, multiple iPhone charging cords, and statement necklaces.

Heading to the party with a bottle of wine is a no brainer. But a bottle of wine dressed up with a fancy ribbon with the addition of lottery tickets is just as easy and fun. And it’s kinda classy. I use this particular gift throughout the year.

4. Neighbor Gift Arkansas lottery, Arkansas Scholarship Lottery.

My neighbors are the best. Whether they are returning my dog who races down the road to her dog friend’s house or generously letting me borrow a cup of wine (umm..I mean…) flour, they always have a smile. I like to let them know how lucky I am to have them as neighbors with a door  knob hanging treat box filled with goodies and lottery tickets.

A formal table setting doesn’t need to be stuffy. Add a scratch off lottery ticket to each guest’s table setting.

I add a topper to my wrapped gifts. Topping a gift with a scratch off lottery card is simple. It’s entertaining to watch friends and family scratch off their card.  It’s, even more, fun when they win.

I created a 25 Lotto Days to Christmas Countdown Calendar that my family looks forward to every day. Don’t worry; there’s still time for you to create a 10 or 5 Day Countdown for your family or even your office. You can catch me daily on Periscope scratching off a lottery ticket until Christmas day. The money we win will go to a worthy cause at the end. So far we’ve won $5.

8. Elf ActivityArkansas lottery, Arkansas Scholarship Lottery.

That elf of ours is always curious, and we have found him on several mornings with a scratch off card. Look at the lengths Elfie goes to set a scene. He may have hot glued a nickel to his felty, little hand.

I love an ornament exchange. I recently participated in the Arkansas Women Bloggers handmade ornament exchange and sent the recipient my original, handpainted canvas ornament with a lottery ticket attached as a little extra happy. She may scratch it off when she receives it or place it on the tree and scratch it off on Christmas Day. (I’d scratch mine off immediately.)

You can tell I like to use scratch off lottery tickets in a variety of ways. These Arkansas Scholarship Lottery tickets not only add an element of fun, surprise and the possibility of winning some cash but more importantly, they help Arkansas students attend college.
