First of all, go big! Make sure you purchase at least one item that has a big imprint area for your company’s logo, website, or phone number. These non-woven laminated totes are very similar to the Lululemon shopping bags that you see everywhere. They are great quality tote bags and have a large place for your logo.

Hand sanitizers are another great item to giveaway. Especially at the big shows where you come in contact with hundreds of people. These small and portable sanitizers have a perfect space for your imprint. Potential customers will keep hold of this useful healthcare themed item, reminding them of your brand. They are also an inexpensive option at under $1.
3. Stylus Pens
I normally advise against buying pens for trade shows, simply because everyone is giving them, away but this item is the exception. Our Curvaceous Twist Action Ballpoint Pen With Stylus And Rubber Grip is the perfect pen that people are sure to want and hold on to. The promo writing item has a ballpoint pen on one end and a stylus at the other end. A perfect tech-themed item to use with your iPhone, iPad or any other touch screen device or phone.

Since we are experiencing ice and freezing rain, the first thing I need is a good promotional ice scraper. I hate getting ready in the morning and racing out to my car to heat it up only to find ice on the windshield. I am complaining, but I don’t even live in the coldest part of the country! Promotional ice scrapers are essential to braving the winter months especially if you live in northern part of the US.
You can’t have ice without freezing rain. If you are out baring the cold, you definitely need to keep an umbrella close by. Custom umbrellas are a great giveaway item because they are extremely practical and useful. Promotional umbrellas are a great way to brand your logo outdoors on the next rainy day.
Whether you are trying to stay warm indoors or having to brave the cold outside at sporting event, you definitely need a promotional blanket. Imprinted blankets are a great marketing piece especially during the cold winter months.

My favorite way to have my coffee is in a mug. Whether I am at a restaurant, at the office or drinking a cup at home, it is simply the best. I bought my husband a new coffee machine for Christmas. If we were addicted before, we are even more addicted now. Since we are both coffee drinkers, we go through several mugs. Custom ceramic mugs are ideal for restaurants, cafes and coffee shops. Employers also can purchase promotional ceramic mugs with their company logo for their employees to use in and out of the office.
For years, I have been a big fan of travel mugs. A regular ceramic mug can be a pain in the car. Most of them do not fit in the cup holder, so you end up having to drive with one hand and end up with coffee splattered in the car and on your clothes. Imprinted travel mugs keep your drinks hot for longer, so you are able to enjoy your coffee without having to reheat for a lot longer. We also have several new travel mugs that are for cold and hot beverages. These double-wall travel mugs make it possible to transport your hot coffee in the winter months and your teas and iced coffee during the summer without having to keep a whole cabinet full of drinkware.
People prefer to go to Starbucks or other coffee shops rather than brewing their own for various reasons. One reason may be that you prefer to drink it out of their to-go mugs. The past few years we have seen a huge rise in these promotional double-wall tumblers with matching lid. They look just like a to-go cup only they are reusable, and you can put your own company logo on it. These custom double-wall tumblers are made out of plastic, glass, or polypropylene and are available in a variety of colors and styles.

Germs are everywhere. One product we all need to be using is hand sanitizer. People that are sick are out and in about which is why it is very important to be washing your hands constantly or using hand sanitizer. Promotional hand sanitizer is a great item to pass out to your employees to help keep them healthy and in the office. Discount hand sanitizers are also a great product for trade shows this time of year.
Another promotional product that will help you stay healthy this flu season is the custom pill box. Whether you have the flu or are trying to stay away from it, it is important to take your vitamins or any other medication. I don’t know about you, but I am not a good medicine taker. By carrying an imprinted pill box with me, it is easier to remember to take my vitamins when it catches my eye throughout the day.
Believe it or not, water can be very important to helping ward off the flu. Studies have shown that by drinking the recommended amount of water a day (8 glasses) your chances are less likely to get the flu. The promotional water bottle is the easiest and cheapest way to make sure you and your employees are getting your daily dose. The Promotional Hitgreen Poly-clean Plastic Bottle is a great choice to keep you hydrated and healthy all year long.

One easy way to start feeling like you are making some progess is to invest in a custom pedometer. The Stayfit is one of my favorite pedometers on the market. It is a little bit pricer than some of our value options, but I love the sleek look. This pedometer measures calories burned, steps taken and distance traveled. The Stayfit will show you that you are on the road to a healthy new you even before you notice significant changes.
Another product that will help you get fit is a promotional pill box. Along with going to the gym, it is important to take your vitamins. If you are anything like me, remembering to take medicine can be a challenge. The only way I can remember is by carrying an imprinted pill box with me in my bag.
Staying hydrated is essential to creating a healthy new you. If you are like me and buy bottled water, you know that the costs add up. This is where the Omega comes in. The Omega is a 16 oz. double wall (BPA free) Tritian copolyester water bottle with filter. The filter is good for up to 200 uses before it will need to be replaced. This imprinted water bottle is sleek and stylish, and it will look great tagging along with you to the gym.
You are going to need something to carry everything you need for the gym. The obvious option would be one of our custom sports bags. These duffel bags are the perfect option for transporting your work out clothes, towel, water bottle, pedometer, and anything else you might need before, after, or during your work out.
If you have done your research, then you know that you can’t only rely on the gym to get healthy. A major factor in your health is your eating habits. People that work outside of the home have quite the challenge finding something healthy to eat for lunch. An easy way to guarantee a healthy lunch is to bring something from home. Transport your meal in style with one of our promotional lunch bags.

It’s that time of year again. December has officially come to an end, and January is here to kick off another new year. I don’t know if you are big on New Year’s Resolutions, but every year I sit down and think of things I want to do better or change in the new year.
1. Use a calendar. Even though my phone has a calendar with the click of a button, there is something about using a pen to write down dates, times and reminders. Promotional calendars are a great gift for your employees for the beginning of the year to stay organized.
2. Drink more water. Lately, I have been reading a lot about the importance of drinking a lot of water throughout the day. For me, the best way to accomplish that is to fill up a large imprinted stainless steel water bottle several times throughout the day.
3. Start exercising (again). I recently had a baby, and as a first time mom (on top of the holiday season) I have not found the time to start working on my post-baby body. Now that it is a new year, it is time. Before I know it, it will be Spring Break and swimsuit season. To kick start my new fitness regimen, I figured I would invest in a promotional pedometer. It will be interesting to use even on the cold winter days when I can’t get out of the house to measure my steps and distance walked around the house.
4. Cook more. My husband and I both like to cook. With the craziness of the end of the year, we kind of fell into a rut of not cooking much, eating Breakfast for Dinner multiple times a week, or picking up something on the way home. I want to experiment more in the kitchen, research new recipes, be fearless and randomly purchase fun new tools like these imprinted pot holders.
5. Get organized and stay organized. I actually like for things to be organized and tidy. However, it seems like as soon as I organize I seem to mess it up again. This seems to usually happen in a rush. I am trying to set a goal of organizing my life in the house and in the car. I recently came across these customized car organizers. What better way to keep your groceries, tools, cleaners, CDs and other car necessities tidy and in a contained space!
6. Document. Since I am experiencing motherhood for the first time, I don’t want to miss a thing. I want to remember all these special moments and feelings. These imprinted journals are one of my favorite things to use to document everything.
7. Spend less on coffee. I am a Starbucks junkie. I have been since I was a little girl. My mom would take me to Houston and one of our things was to get a frappuccino on our way home. When I grew up, I wanted to work there and learn their secret. In college, I studied almost daily at a Starbucks across from campus. It was cozy and full of students like me trying to study, but avoiding the awkward silences of the library. For Christmas, I bought my husband the new Starbucks coffee machine, and we are loving being able to make our own cappuccinos at home. The only problem is I need a travel mug to take with me when I leave the house. The thing I love most about this particular tumbler is that it comes with a straw, so I can use it through the summer months to drink iced coffee!
8. Stay healthy. During the winter months, it is important to work extra hard to stay healthy. People are indoors more and seem to get sick a lot easier. I love having my promotional hand sanitizers to carry around with me when I am out and about.

In college, I used a backpack, but I am in desperate need of a new one. This made me think how obvious of a corporate gift, award, or giveaway that backpacks could be. Backpacks are multi-functional….
The promotional Saturn Sling is a great backpack for younger, hip students. This particular bag is a fun shoulder bag style that is available in four different colors. Schools could use these as giveaways to award students for perfect attendance. The bag could also be used as a good promotional tool. The PTA or SGA could sell customized backpacks with the schools name or mascot imprinted on them.
Schools seem to be the obvious choice for purchasing backpacks, but everyone needs a good backpack. Here are a few more of my favorite choices in the backpack category:
The Daytripper Backpack is very sleek looking. Most backpacks seem to come in darker colors, but this particular backpack is white with the option of black, red, or royal blue detailing around the front pocket trim.
For the more serious backpackers (like me, haha), you may prefer something like this. It has more storage compartments and enough space to pack all of your needs for a weekend getaway.
If you are looking for something more high end and name brand, you might like our Oakley backpacks:
Backpacks are a great, functional gift or giveaway for companies to consider. They are carried around everywhere with your logo displayed right on the front. So, why not consider giving a backpack for your next corporate gift, giveaway or prize?
For those who may need a little more space, this sturdy insulated lunch bag is a great branded giveaway. These are perfect for not only lunches and snacks, but it also has a handy top compartment that can be used to store condiments, utensils or whatever else you choose. These can be great gifts for employees, clients, and even family members. Everyone should own a lunch bag and I guarantee you everyone could always use a new one. It is an easy way to put your logo on such an essential item for maximum exposure. 10390897
