Are lottery scratcher a good gift for my exhusband?

our son made him a reindeer statue at Paint-a-Dream but I'd like to get something else he and his wife can enjoy. What do you think? Scratchers? Food of some type? I cannot remember what I got them last year. I know they got me a personalized ornament from our son.

Suggestions welcome!

  • What about a gift certificate to a local restaurant or something? if its just for the two of them it wouldn't even have to be that much, like $25? Scratchers are always fun but what if he won lots of money? would he share with you? :P

  • I'd give them a gift card of some sort (restaurant, Home Depot etc). Call me greedy but I would be REALLY PISSED if my Ex won a ton of money from a scratch off I gave him! LOL!

  • If they win,it's a good gift
    If they lose,basically they get nothing as a gift

  • Sure, if he likes the lottery. Who knows, you might change his life if he wins big. I sent mine Christmas chocolates.

  • I would let the kids pick out a tie or socks from them. Something simple and cheap. He is an EX you know.

  • Trust me!! I thought of that. lol. And no, he wouldn't share with me! Gift card is a cool idea. I'll ask my son where his dad likes to eat.

  • yes, Lousie, he is an ex but we are all still very friendly. We will be sharing a child for life...

    Anyhow, we ended up doing a Chili's restaurant gift card. I let my son pick.

  • You must be a lot friendlier than I am with my ex. I am most certainly NOT buying my ex a present.

    But, I do like the gift certificate idea.
