Wanted some sort of unique prize/award

I am seeking something off the wall for a monthly employee appreciation prize for my new work team that i have been tasked to motivate. One of my ideas was a championship wrestling belt but hulk hogan ainít taking my calls.
I need something unique and maybe slightly ridiculous that would be a performance award given monthly and coveted.

In one of my squadrons we did the wwe wrestling belts from the toy section at wal mart. I used a label machine to stick over the belt name. And it switched hands everytime it was awarded. Sounded dumb but people would spend the day with it over their shoulder talking smack. It was a great motivator, my buddy said its still in the trophy case their

They are recruiters in a staffing agency that my company purchased. My next assignment is looking like I will be there director. Itís high volume work. They are salaried plus commission. Really need to keep them Motivated and celebrate the wins. Itís not an easy game and burnout can happen. I need to make it fun for them which in turn makes it fun for me.

One of the things Brad Everhart used to do to get the Sales Team fired up was to do a WAVE.
Used to keep the day fun and loosen the Sales Team up.
We are all mixed teams here so it also got the Underwriters, Fulfillment and QC teams up and moving too.
I miss our Sales Team, they moved the department to Texas.
