I'd do it. My dad had his 70th back in September and I bought him a tenners worth. Lucky bugger won almost £30!! It's a nice, novelty gift and it won't break the back. Tell your DH to wind his neck in.
YANBU scratch cards have been the generally accepted gift between cousins in my family for a while now. It can be a sharp intake of breath when you buy them all at once tbf. But it's a nice way to give something these days.
That's hilarious blah. What did you do - did you share in the end? I would find it hard I think not to share winnings on a scratchcard that someone had given me in a cracker, and we were all opening them at the same time. I wouldn't expect anyone to share their winnings with me if I had given them the scratchcard cracker though. Its just that I don't think I could do it. But against the background of her previously refusing to share her £5.30, I would understand if you didn't share your £200!!
Senior If my friend won a fortune I'd be delighted for them because they're my friend. It's not like it's a straight choice between 'buy myself 12 scratchcards and scratch em all myself' OR 'buy 12 scratchcards and put one in each cracker'. If I hadn't bought the 12 for the crackers I wouldn't have bought 12 just for me so the fortune winning card would end up being purchased by a random stranger some time in early/mid January instead.
