New Jersey Lottery—the holiday gift that keeps on giving

– Posted in: featured

This is a sponsored post on behalf of New Jersey Lottery in conjunction with Blog Meets Brand. I received lottery tickets in addition to compensation in exchange for this review. All opinions are entirely my own.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Until you forget that your coworkers are throwing an ugly Christmas sweater party and you don’t have a gift for the grab bag.

Or your cousin’s wife’s mom’s friend decided to surprise you with a fruit cake, and again you are left empty handed.

And someone invited crazy uncle Bob even though he’s plagued with Foot in Mouth Syndrome and he always wants to pick a fight with you about politics over the dinner table.

Despite what your inner voice might be telling you, even uncle Bob deserves a holiday gift and I’m excited to reveal a super fun, last-minute present that everyone will enjoy—from your favorite hair stylist or postal carrier to your hard-to-shop-for coworker or relative (we all know at least one).

New Jersey Lottery recently unveiled their four new instant holiday games ($1 Holiday Sparkle, $2 Holiday Luck Times 10, $5 Holiday Spectacular, and $10 $10,000 Bonus Games). These tickets are conveniently located in several brick and mortar locations across the beautiful state of New Jersey, making them a convenient last-minute gift option for anyone on your list. I typically go to my local gas station to pick them up but they are also available in 7-11, Quick Check, Wawa, etc.

I have even been thinking of asking Santa for some tickets this year, because I have big dreams of a new home and a trip around the world (and smaller dreams, like a new purse or pair of kicks for the gym). NJ Lottery Holiday Instant Games can help to make these dreams a reality.

Check out this adorable video of fun crafts you can make (for anyone who is a bit more DIY inclined than I am, ha!):

What do you get for the person who has everything, and have you ever considered gifting lottery tickets?

The Fun committee at my work totally bought scratch off lottery tickets for our holiday party on Thursday to be gifts for various games we’re playing. You never know, they could be big winners! It’s a fun gift to give!

Since my entire family lives in NJ, this is the most valid gift ever for all of them. So thanks for that!

This would be a fun idea for those people that are hard to shop for – or just little, last minute gifts. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

I love scratch-off tickets but I NEVER win. I used to know someone who would always win. I guess some people are lucky!

My family never plays the lottery but for a few years we had a tradition of giving each other a few scratch off lottery tickets in our stockings. I don’t think we ever won much but you never know!

This is a great idea for people who are difficult to shop for. It is a fun gift as well 🙂
