Football Themed Birthday Party Favor Ideas and Prizes
March 31, 2016 by

I always try to do something unique for my kids' birthdays. Especially when it comes to an actual party, since I only have one big one each year. My oldest enjoys parties and having company. My youngest prefers to go on a mini vacation.

I'm a couponer and pretty cheap year round, but parties are a time I get to splurge, get creative and "go-all-out"...even if I'm doing it frugally (yes, it's in the dictionary!). I found a lot of great ideas for a football themed party online, but there weren't many ideas available regarding favors. I also needed more options when it came to games, but I'll post about that later...

There will be games, but with the games come winners. So, I had to search for prizes!

I found really cool football shaped trophies on In fact, I found so many cool themes and supplies for every occasion that I signed up to become an affiliate. Please note, this post will contain affiliate links. But everything mentioned is my own honest opinion.
The trophies can be personalized. I was considering it, but I didn't want to spend any more money than required since I already ordered personalized drinking cups as keepsakes for our guests. Personalizing everything might be too showy.

For the children who tried their best, but didn't reach the finish line first, I found really cool football shaped mini piggy banks. They're really cute, fit the theme and they're actually useful even though they're smaller than usual piggy banks, at 3-1/2". I was initially going to use the piggy banks as part of the party favors, but since I have the personalized cups, I now plan to fill them with mini blowing bubbles, toys and candy.
I will be putting the favors together the night before the party. I will share pictures once they're ready!

Before I go, there's one other favor I will like our guests to leave with. Just as I did with our Pirate themed party and the #DisneySide Valentine's Day Play Date, I will have a Football photo prop. When the kids arrive, I will have them take photos with the prop and they will receive their photo with their favors. I'm excited to see how everything turns out! Are you? :)
