‘Tis the season for giving meaningful gifts to friends, family, teachers and neighbors. Today I’m sharing with you a gift that would be perfect for just about anyone on your holiday list! This Breakfast Lovers Gift Basket With NJ Lottery is just gorgeous and packed with the newest NJ Holiday scratch-offs, pancake and scone mix, jam, mixing bowl and more!

I don’t know about you but I truly believe that the best gifts are those that provide an experience and in this case- a VERY delicious experience. Not only does this Breakfast Lovers Get Basket provide really delicious treats but how amazing to give your loved ones the chance for a big pay out with NJ Lottery!. Who wouldn’t love this basket full of the newest New Jersey Lottery Holiday themed Scratch-Offs available for the Holiday season.

The New Jersey Lottery is introducing 4 Holiday Scratch-Offs ($1, $2, $5 “Happy Holidays”, and $10 “$1,00,000 Spectacular”). These Holiday themed games are fun, festive and who wouldn’t love the chance to win one of the many prizes! These tickets can now be found at any brick & mortar stores that sell NJ Lottery Scratch-Offs. I LOVE a themed gift and this year I am celebrating with a basket full of breakfast goodies!

Be sure to check out my themed gift baskets from years past… Pasta Lovers Gift Basket, Baking Lovers Gift Basket and Food Lovers Gift Basket.

I used a really adorable winter penguin gift box filled with basket filling as the base. From my local Home Goods I found all these great breakfast items- a gorgeous mixing bowl with a whisk and cookie cutters, scone and pancake mix, maple syrup, jam, to-go coffee cups, biscotti and tea. I feel like with this year being so incredibly difficult and while we might not be able to get together the same way we usually do, this basket is such a treat providing a friend, neighbor or loved one with everything you need for a delicious morning. For that element of surprise and the chance to win I created a couple ways to incorporate NJ Lottery Scratch-Offs!

For the $1 “Happy Holidays” NJ Lottery Scratch-Offs I thought they’d be perfect strung across the front of the basket. I used a jute twine to tape the scratch-offs to- being sure to not tape on the bar code. I tied a cute knot on the ends and taped the string across the front. Is that not super cute?!

Another really simple and fun way to display the New Jersey Lottery Holiday themed Scratch-Offs is with a wooden skewer. I simply tape a scratch-off to the skewer and then place them throughout the basket. They really stand out and get the recipient excited for this amazing gift basket!

I went ahead and added more throughout out the basket and really, how fantastic is this Breakfast Lovers Gift Basket with NJ Lottery?! I know I’d be thrilled to get this as a gift! Gift baskets are a great way to show friends and family how much you appreciate them and are so customizable. I made this one for a neighbor and I know the family is going to love it! I think the holiday themed scratch-offs are the perfect addition to this holiday basket! I can’t help but wonder, What would YOU do if you won? Me- I’d love to spend it on a family getaway!

I’ve got another quick and easy way for you to gift the NJ Lottery Holiday Scratch-Offs. Again using those wooden skewers we tape the scratch-offs on there. I then take a small holiday treat bag and place it over then close with some festive ribbon. I placed a bunch right into a faux plant to give as a gift. Isn’t it cute?

I have to tell you about something I just learned about with the NJ Lottery, the Million Dollar Replay!! If you go ahead and sign up for FREE to the NJ Lottery VIP Club you can actually enter non-winning tickets into a Million Dollar Replay second chance drawing!! How awesome is that… because hey, everyone deserves a second chance!

Applying for a Raffle Licence

What is a Raffle?

A raffle is a lottery scheme where ticket purchasers pay for a chance to win a prize. Some examples include cash, merchandise, travel, or a percentage draw (such as a 50/50).

Before you start

A group AGLC has found eligible for raffles with a total ticket value $20,000 and less must follow:

Total Ticket Value

To calculate the total ticket value, multiply the price(s) of the ticket(s) by the number of tickets for sale. For example, 10,000 tickets at $2 each equals a total ticket value of $20,000.

A group may choose to sell discount tickets in multiples at a lower price per ticket than a regular ticket. For example, one ticket for sale at $5 and discount tickets for sale at three for $10.

Add regular tickets and discount tickets to calculate total ticket value:

  • 500 regular tickets x $3 per ticket = $1,500
  • 3,000 discounted tickets at two for $5 = $7,500

The total ticket value in this example is $9,000.

A group must not exceed the total ticket value of the licence.

Planning for the Licence

Before you get a licence online through an AGLC web account or from a registry agent, you need to know:

  • the format of the raffle: cash or merchandise; 50/50; progressive ( see FAQ for additional detail )
  • the number of tickets for sale
