Prize Ideas for a Trivia Party

My church is having a trivia night and we're searching for grand prizes for the winning team. Can anyone give me ideas about what prizes are good for such an event? Thanks.

Prize Ideas for a Trivia Party

When we've had work trivia nights, the concentration was on the fun and socializing as opposed to the value of the prizes. For the winning team we felt it was better to have individual prizes for each team member so they could each take something home. They each got a winner's certificate, a winner's medal (cheap gold ones from party sections), and a bottle of sparkling wine (champagne) each.

We've also had fancy dress trivia nights, so the best-dressed table each got movie tickets. We tried to think of something that anyone could use and yes granted not everyone drinks alcohol, but they're bound to know a family member who does. You could also make individual gift baskets which we did another year, we had to have an assortment of male and female versions.

It's hard since I don't know what kind of budget you're working with.
Our budget was tight since they were "charity" trivia nights and our aim was to raise money so we had lots of fun fundraising activities also at intervals throughout the night, each with a prize. (09/15/2006)

When my church has a game night, we often have a white elephant prize. Everyone is encouraged to bring a "white elephant" wrapped nicely, and winners pick a prize. Sometimes you get something kind of nice, but that the donor has no use for, and sometimes things are silly. Adds to the fun. (09/15/2006)

At my local Walmart store, on my last shopping trip there, on the discount aisle, they had some ceramic wall crosses painted in pretty colors with roses, some had angels on them. All had sayings on them. One was this saying, "Hope Raises No Dust". I got them for $1.00 each. They had lots left even after I got some for me and for gifts. I hope you happen up on some of these inexpensive gifts. Great luck on your event. (09/15/2006)

What about gift certificates. I don't like giving them because they aren't imaginative, but as you don't know who will win, that would work. They could be for dinner, Home Depot, or free babysitting, etc. (09/15/2006)

We just had our annual parish picnic. This year our newly formed Youth Group had a free ring toss game. Since I am the assistant leader I asked the local fast food businesses for certificate donations, as well as objects to be won. The one that seemed to go over very well was the Dunkin Donuts certificates. The adults were all trying for the dunkin cup with the certificates in it. (09/18/2006)
