Christmas is just around the corner, so what are you planning to give your loved ones? Greeting cards, cookies, sweets, or funky goodies are commonly gifted in the holiday season. But, what’s unique about them? Nothing! Why not try something different this year by gifting lottery tickets as a Christmas gift?
Anyone who is on a limited budget and wants to gift something eccentric should gift lottery tickets. Why wander the streets looking for the perfect Christmas gift, when you have a great gift option. Lottery tickets are an ultimate no-labor gift!
Lindy Short, a lottery winner from Sellersburg, Indianapolis in the US explained in a press conference how she won the lottery jackpot. She said, “I thought I would win just $50, but the prize money was far more zeros than $50.
Winning such a big amount was no less than a dream” She further explained, “I clearly remember, it was a usual day at my office when the lottery results were announced. And, I got so excited that I immediately sent a screengrab to my husband.”
Prior to Christmas, Lindy and her husband gifted each other with a stocking including a lottery ticket inside. The ticket which her husband gave was the jackpot ticket, not the one she gifted her husband. Isn’t it enough to prove that lottery tickets make for a perfect Christmas gift? Lindy gave 10% of her winnings to the Church. It was surely a great Christmas for her!

Winnings are uncertain, but the odds of winning the jackpot are enough to make anyone excited. But beware! If you think you will feel upset if you gave someone winning the lottery ticket, then don’t do it in the first place. Remember, a gift is a gift and should be given without expecting anything in return.
Also, the person who wins the lottery is under no obligation to share the prize amount. On the bright side, just imagine, how would you feel if you received a lottery ticket and won the lottery jackpot? You will be happy about it, won’t you?
A gift given with conditions is no gift! So, before you indulge yourself in some playful activities, imagine both scenarios and then gift. Lottery tickets are a great Christmas gift but beware of the caveats. Merry Christmas!
