There’s a new way of making a memorable pregnancy announcement – with baby-themed lottery tickets! The scratch-off lottery tickets look just like the real thing, directing participants to “match three identical symbols in the Game Box, win prizes shown in Prize box.”
Then that’s when friends and family get to the good part. It’s the “Prize Box” that reveals that they’re loved one is having a baby. There are two versions that are readily available online. One that is called “Instant Cash” and another called “Lucky Treasure.”
Custom Scratch-Off Lottery Tickets Is the Newest Way to Announce a Pregnancy
The cards are available on Etsy, starting at $3.93. Scratch-off lottery tickets may be the newest and creative way to reveal your baby news, but there are lots of fun ways to make the special announcement, well special.
If you’re not going the lottery route, you can share the happy news with custom made t-shirts announcing that you’ll be parents or onesies with a special message written on it for your family and friends. There are also these adorable digital letter boards that can be customized with a personalized message and ultrasound picture.
If you’re not into the customized route, you can always go with a good-old-fashioned ultrasound photo inside a card, a simple “we’re having a baby,” or a post on social media. Whatever way you choose to announce the news, your friends and family will be thrilled!
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
