It’s time to think about those hard to gift friends and family, or ways to make a party a little more fun, and I’ve got just the thing with a New Jersey Lottery Present Punch Game. 

I love a New Jersey scratch off lottery ticket gift. I’ve been giving Scratch off Lottery ticket gifts and Centerpieces for years. I’ve made a Gingerbread house, Sleigh, Tree, and Holiday Crackers but this year I wanted to have something that could be a party game for adults, so I decided to make a Present Punch Game!

NJ Lottery must be 18 to playI’m going to remind you that you must be 18 or older to buy a lottery ticket. The New Jersey Lottery reminds players, it’s only a game, remember to play responsibly. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1800-GAMBLER®. For more information visit New Jersey Lottery. 

With prices from $1, $2, $5 and $10, I usually pick up a few extra Scratch-Offs so I’m prepared for the season, and we’re all about dropping a little joy for family and friends. What’s great about Scratch-Off Lottery Tickets as a gift is they take up no room, and you get to do something fun. We always enjoy scratching off tickets, and it’s so exciting when we win cash or another ticket, so the fun can keep going, it’s really a gift that keeps on giving.

How to make a punch board


Assortment of New Jersey Lottery Tickets ($1- Sleigh Bills, $2- Snow Me the Money, $5- Peppermint Payout, and $10 – Winter Wishes)

Hot Glue Gun

Step 1: Cut your tissue paper into squares that will cover your cups
Step 2: Arrange your cups into the shape/design you want
Step 3: Hot glue the cups onto the board. (I like to circle around the bottom of the cup and add an X in the middle with the glue)

Step 5: Cover with tissue paper using a rubber band
Step 6: Decorate your board with ribbon, garland and whatever makes you smile

Present Punch Game

The name of the game is Present Punch and there are a lot of different ways to play, but we like to play with dice and remember it’s an adults only game!

  1. Roll doubles on the dice
  2. Pick your present
  3. Punch into it and find your prize
  4. Scraft off to see if you’re the big winner!

The way to play is easy, but I like to keep one cup empty and then when you see the disappointment in their face you surprise them with the $10 Winter Wishes NJ Lottery Ticket! It’s like a gift that keeps on giving!

Adult Only Party Game

What makes this so fun is to see the adults laughing, joking and getting excited when they scratch off and discover they’ve won something. This will be a great party game for holiday parties, Christmas Eve or Day and New Year’s Eve.
