The holidays are a great time to show employees how much you appreciate their loyalty and dedicated service to your company. But, we’ve all been on the receiving end of some terrible holiday promotional products and unwanted holiday gifts from an employer. They go in the desk drawer and never see the light of day again until it is time for spring cleaning, during which they often end up in the trash. Gasp! What a waste! Don’t waste your precious marketing dollars or employee budget on tired, unwanted promotional products. Not only are promotional products a great way to say ‘thank you,’ but when used correctly, they can also be an excellent marketing tool! Get a little creative with your employee gifts and keep them motivated with these fun and highly useful employee holiday promotional products!
1. Power Bank
We have all experienced the dread of our technology running out of battery. Whether it is your phone, tablet, or laptop – when you are on-the-go, you need power! But, power may not always be readily available or you may have forgotten that trusty cord to connect your device at home. Fear not! A wireless power bank to the rescue! Whether you are in a theme park, airport, in the car, hiking, or anywhere else, a ready power supply can be right at your fingertips with a power bank.
2. Bluetooth Speaker
A portable Bluetooth speaker keeps the music playing wherever you are! While Bluetooth speakers are not necessarily new (they’ve been a trend the last few years), they are one of those promotional products that never go out of style. Can anyone have too many Bluetooth speakers? We think not! And, anywhere your employees use that Bluetooth speaker, they will see your branding and be reminded of your generous gift and they will also show off your brand wherever they go and use the speaker.
A backpack is a hot gift right now because there are so many cool ways to brand a unique backpack that is useful for storing a laptop, taking to the gym, taking on a hike, or toting your things on a flight. Gone are the days of basic, boring backpacks! There are many cool new styles, including canvas bags that look like they came straight off the racks at a trendy local shop.
4. Fitness Ball or Athletic Bands
One of the hottest themes in promotional products in 2019 (and we think this will not change anytime soon), is gifts that promote health and wellness. Something like an inflatable fitness ball, massaging balls for sore muscles, or athletic bands for stretching or exercising at home or on-the-go.
5. USB Adapter
We live in a digital era and we all need to charge all of the technology we use every single day. Not only does that leave us with a lot of cords but it leaves us trying to find adequate outlets and chargers available for all our devices. A USB adapter can make your charging life much easier by multiplying the number of available ports and removing the complication of finding the right chargers for devices because you can simply use the USB end of your charging cord and plug it right in! Your employees will be thanking you when they start enjoying the convenience of a USB adapter with your logo on it!
