Ever wonder what your title is among your friends and family? Make a questionnaire for your friend group or family and tell them to vote for each other on each award. The award can be something like “mom of the group”, “the loudest”, “never on time”, “the most fashionable”, and more. You can try to prepare a small gift or a funny certificate for each award winner! This is a way for you and your loved ones to take a moment to look back on the memories you’ve created throughout 2021.
