As you may know, nominees for the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards (probably some others) receive a pin to commemorate the nomination. This pin is generally given to the attending nominees at the beginning of the event at which the award is handed out, and is worn as an honor and as a notice to the other attendees that this person is a nominee. For all of these awards the pin is the same every year (generally speaking).

Check any of the following you feel is in good taste. Don't check those that you feel are in bad or questionable taste.
