Nine Fun Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving Shirt Ideas for 2022

Thanksgiving is almost here and, while the holidays have been quite different since the COVID-19 pandemic, there are still ways to stay connected this year. Whether you’re gathering in person or celebrating from afar, custom Thanksgiving shirts and Friendsgiving shirts are a fun way to feel a stronger sense of togetherness this year. If you’re looking for Thanksgiving gift ideas, custom products are also wonderful for showing how thankful you are. We’ve rounded up nine fun Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving t-shirt design ideas to inspire you or to use yourself! 

Official Turkey Tasting Crew

A gray t-shirt that says "Your family here" as an example of where to put your group name, and "official turkey tasting crew" beneath it. Every gathering needs an official turkey taster, and in this case, you can have a whole crew of them! This design is perfect for your group of friends, family, or work family who love having a role in the kitchen, but maybe not the ones that require a lot of work. Then again, everyone is usually a turkey taster by the end of Thanksgiving Day! This and other Thanksgiving theme shirts about food are such a fun way to celebrate the day. 

Turkey Bowl

A navy and yellow v-neck t-shirt with a design that shows a turkey with a football for a body. Text reads "Dowling family Turkey Bowl." Does your local community, school, or office host a turkey bowl every year? Maybe you organize one of your own? If so, then this is the Thanksgiving design for you! Celebrate the big Thanksgiving game by wearing matching custom shirts that show your support for the team. Plus with our huge selection of activewear, you’re bound to find something you can wear for years to come! 


Run Now, Pie Later

A light blue performance tank top with text that says "Run Now, Pie Later." Are you and your group the type to get up early on a crisp Thanksgiving morning to participate in a Turkey Trot? Enrich your experience together with some funny Thanksgiving shirts to wear on race day. But, really, who needs it to be Thanksgiving to have a delicious slice of pumpkin pie after a 5K anyway? We sure don’t! Crossing the finish line is always so much sweeter when there’s pie on the other side. Wanting something a little warmer than a tank top? Check out our selection of performance hoodies and sweatshirts

Thankful for Friendsgiving

A black t-shirt with text that reads "Thankful for Friendsgiving" in the style of the "Friends" sitcom logo. Friendsgiving has become more and more popular throughout the last decade, but even more so in a post-COVID world. If you’re hosting one or just attending this year, matching Friendsgiving shirts make the day even more special. The classic sitcom “Friends” has also seen a resurgence in popularity, so why not celebrate both? This fun and simple design combines an old favorite with a new tradition. What’s not to like? Try out this design on long sleeve t-shirts to stay cozy. 

Turkey Trot

A charcoal gray performance t-shirt with an illustration of two turkeys wearing running shoes and the text "Rosewood Park Turkey Trot." Perhaps you’re not only the ones who run or walk a turkey trot every year, but you’re also organizers. In that case, Custom Ink has got you covered on Thanksgiving themes and race day shirts everyone will want and love. This design can be used for every participant in your local race or just your group. Turkey trots are typically casual races, so have some fun and celebrate your team! 

Keep Calm and Watch Football

A maroon crewneck sweatshirt with yellow text that reads "Keep calm and watch football." A yellow football is at the top. Not every custom t-shirt design you choose for Thanksgiving Day has to be specifically pertaining to Thanksgiving. Besides, Thanksgiving Day can be full of endless traditions, and one tradition that persists is watching football while the turkey is roasting and the pies are baking. Whether the pie is burning, deep-frying the turkey has gone wrong, or the dogs have somehow eaten all of the mashed potatoes, you can remember to keep calm and watch football. Plus, this design looks great on Thanksgiving sweatshirts

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

A black cropped hoodie with orange text that reads "Pumpkin spice and everything nice." On the left, there is a very cute white and orange mug with a smiley face.Love it or hate it, pumpkin spice is here to stay! If you and your group are the ones who just can’t get enough, check out this pumpkin spice-inspired design that’s perfectly festive for fall. Some cute latte clipart rounds out this fun design and adds an extra element of coziness. We love how this design looks on a Bella + Canvas Women’s Drop Shoulder Cropped Hoodie, and it looks great on the ever-popular Bella + Canvas Ultra Soft Pullover Hoodie for a unisex option. Like many of our other designs, these can make great Thanksgiving gifts as well!  

Leaves, Hoodies, Pumpkins, & Flannels

A black unisex hoodie with the list "Leaves hoodies pumpkins & flannels" in orange and brown ink colors.While some of us may be lamenting the end of summer, there are plenty of things to love about fall! You can leaf this design as-is or customize it to your specific taste. Crisp mornings, pumpkin everything, sweater weather, apple cider, harvest festivals, endless amounts of pie, scarves, hay rides, book-buying season, and so many other reasons make fall so exciting! What would your group’s list say? 

I’m into Fitness—Fit’ness Pie in My Mouth

A gray t-shirt that reads "I'm into fitness—fit'ness pie in my mouth" in orange text. On a brown banner below, it reads "Lee Family Thanksgiving." In the center, there is a glowing piece of pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream.Can you tell that we love food at Custom Ink? Because we really, really do. This design can be for those who go hard in the gym and at the Thanksgiving table. Of course, anyone who’s simply a fan of puns (and pie) will get some enjoyment out of this design as well. Funny Thanksgiving shirts can be fantastic gifts for your friends, coworkers, and family and can start a tradition of feeling together (again).
