I’m barely over the 4th of July and it’s already time to talk about Back To School swag and giveaways.
As college students move back into dorm rooms or arrive back on campus, there are many opportunities for “Welcome to Campus” gifts or events where you can hand out swag with your branding message.
Everyone loves free stuff, but college students are especially excited about the swag- and they keep it around, thus keeping your message in front of them and their friends.
What is the most popular swag for college students? There are a ton of swag idea that we can help you narrow down based on your needs, budget and event, but some of the best general swag ideas for students are below.
You can never go wrong with stadium cups or can coolies (both for soda only, of course). The imprint area is large on both items, they are lightweight and allow you to add more than one logo or message if needed.
Lip balm is always a hit, especially in the cooler months. It can also be fun to tie a flavor in with the event, especially if it is something seasonal.
Tissue packs are perfect for campus wide handouts- seriously, what student comes to college prepared with tissues? These even work great for parent gifts with a fun saying such as “Don’t cry, we’ve got them from here.”
Any gifts that new students can use in their dorm rooms or apartments are a huge hit. Add your logo to these reusable snack bowls that are microwave safe or if you messaging is more health and wellness related, these portion bowls are a great way to help prevent the “freshman 15”.
Now that they are having to do their own laundry, these mesh laundry bags will come in handy, even if they are using them to take home for the parents to wash every weekend. The non woven laundry bags offers a less expensive option.
Just like most trade show swag ideas, tech is always popular. Charging cables, cord organizers such as wraps or pouches and phone wallets are all inexpensive swag items students need and will appreciate. We have a variety of tech swag ideas to fit your needs and price range.
