Summer is the season of BBQs, picnics, travel, and time spent at the pool, lake, or beach. Summer is such a great time of reset for everyone because everyone is ready to leave behind their usual routines and switch things up for a while. This is great for companies because when someone is ready to make a switch or try new things they are far more likely to actually use a new promotional product they receive. While there are certain promotional products that are popular and useful to receive any time of year (did someone say ‘Bluetooth speaker’?), there are other things that are particularly useful in certain seasons. Fortunately, all of the items below serve both purposes. They are both perennially useful and very useful during the summer months. And, if a product is useful, it will get used – and that means your branding will be promoted and you will foster goodwill. Snag one or all of these promotional products for summer for your next company BBQ, picnic, or event or just to give away to customers that you want to impress!
3 Hot Promotional Products for Summer!
- Branded Reusable Straws
- Many people are making an effort to reduce waste and be more eco-friendly and they have turned to something as simple as a reusable straw as a practical way to make this change. Further, more and more restaurants are converting to using paper straws in an effort to reduce their plastic waste that doesn’t decompose the same way that paper does. Paper straws are a great alternative but if you have ever used one, you know – the longer it sits in your drink, the more ‘mushy’ it gets and that just makes it an unpleasant experience every time you take a sip. The ideal solution to this is a reusable straw. There are many different options including aluminum, glass, and silicone. All of these can be branded and will ensure that your brand is seen on a very regular basis as many people use their reusable straws every single day.
- Branded Charging Cords
- Who doesn’t need a little extra power from time to time? A charging cord is similar to other power banks or charging keychains you may have seen. The user simply charges them in advance and then the cord retains that power so that, should you need a little extra power, it is right at your fingertips and you don’t have to scramble to save that last 4% of battery. This is always useful to keep in your backpack or purse but it can be very helpful when traveling since there is often less convenient access to the ability to charge your device. Just imagine being on-the-go in Disneyland – it won’t feel like the happiest place on earth if your phone is dead and you can’t take any photos to remember the experience. But, if you keep your branded charging cord in your bag, you can have access to power whenever you need it. Make your brand seem indispensable with a branded charging cord this summer.
- Branded Waterproof Container
- The summer months can be hot and what better way to cool off is there than jumping in the pool, lake, or ocean? There is something about swimming in water that is so closely connected with summer joy. That joy will quickly disappear if you leave your phone, other devices, wallet, keys, or other items out and they get wet or sandy. Some even include a built-in waterproof audio jack so you can still plug your device in to listen to your favorite summer song or podcast. There is a multitude of different waterproof container sizes and styles so you can easily find the ideal product to place your branding on and present to employees and customers as a generous gift to use this summer.
