    • Scratch Ticket Gag Gift

      Scratch tickets make great gifts - but for some folks, the anticipation of waiting for the recipient to scratch off the ticket is too much. Here's a fun, unique gag gift idea for an already scratched ticket.

      Print out the following poems onto an envelope and then slip a couple scratched off lotto tickets inside.

      I bought you a lottery ticket
      'Cause I know that you'd like to win
      But I realized if it's a loser
      My idea wouldn't make you grin
      So I saved you the disappointment
      And scratched the ticket for you
      I thought it would be the proper
      And Thoughtful thing to do!
      2004 Jennifer Byerly


      I bought you a scratch off ticket
      I know you like them so well
      I got hung up on if it was a winner
      My nerves were giving me a fit without fail
      I couldn't stand the anticipation
      It broke me out in a heavy sweat
      I had to scratch it off for you
      Or have a bad case of the frets
      I sure hope you appreciate me being thoughtful
      Because this is what you get!
