Thanksgiving Trophies, Thanksgiving Awards


Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and it’s never too early to start preparing for your family celebrations this year. The holidays bring families together, and what better way to celebrate than with some friendly competitions, activities, and rewards!


Creating Festive CenterpiecesThanksgiving Trophy

Decorating your Thanksgiving dinner table is a fun and simple way to make your holiday more lively. Create your own centerpieces by using a classic insert trophy with our Happy Thanksgiving insert and surrounding it with candles, flowers, mini cornucopia or any other decorative Thanksgiving items. To make the trophy truly unique personalize them with your family name!

Family Football TrophiesFriendly Flag Football

Football and Thanksgiving go hand in hand, which gives you a great opportunity to get your whole family together to play a game of flag football outside. Split your family up into two teams, or organize a game with a neighbor if you have a smaller family. Head out to your backyard or a local park and have a friendly game of football. Make sure everybody gets active and works up a good appetite for the big meal afterwards! Reward the winning team with a champion’s trophy, and pass the trophy around the family’s winning team from year to year.



Potlucks are one of the most popular Thanksgiving traditions, and take some of the work off of the host! Potlucks are the perfect way for everyone to help out on the big day! Ask each family member to bring a different Thanksgiving dish that everyone can enjoy together around the dinner table. This allows everyone to showcase their skills and share their special recipes with the whole family!

Pie Baking ContestsThanksgiving Medals

Another great way to get the whole family involved in activities is to have a pie baking contest and have family members vote on the winner. This way, everyone can be involved! Whether they want to bake a pie or prefer to taste them and vote, it will get the whole family talking and bring everybody closer together. Reward the winner each year with our pie baking medal!
