Alternative Trophy Ideas
By Definition, a trophy is a tangible reminder of a specific achievement. It serves as recognition or evidence of merit.
For most people, a trophy is a symbol of success and victory. Something used to impress others and many times a momentum.
Because trophies are so prevalent in our society, most people have received many. In order to make them feel more significant, it is a good idea to think outside of the box of the commonplace trophy or plaque.
Customized ware is always a fun and portable idea. Anything from custom duffle bags, golf bags, backpacks and hats are common. A nice custom jacket or blazer is something that would certainly stand out.
Some unique ideas that someone could carry with them are laser cut bag tags, custom divots, an engraved flask, a custom putter or even a champion ring.
The idea of an experience is also a fantastic idea. Giving one the gift of an experience is something people will never forget and always talk about! When the Trophy is for a repeat event like a golf tournament, having a grand prize that is sought after is important. This will help with people returning to your annual event and also help get the buzz out to more competitors.
The old saying, “It’s the thought that counts” proves truthful. Put more thought into your trophy, make it unique and meaningful, and you are bound to impress!
