That’s a loaded question. There are a lot of factors to take into consideration when we are suggesting products for your marketing & branding- we look at your industry, your customer’s demographics, where and how you will be giving items away just to name a few.
But, for the sake of this blog, let’s take a broad overview of all the new swag giveaway ideas out there- what we see that is popular, what people are loving to get as giveaways and what is popular at retail, which is playing a larger and larger roll in the promotional products industry.
S’well bottles have recently become available to add your logo to. As a widely recognized, and well respected, retail brand S’well has a wide line of products and colors that you can add your logo to. The S’well logo will still appear on the back of the bottle and your logo can be etched or printed on the opposite side.
Straws are being banned everywhere, by all the big names (not saying it isn’t justified), but it is going to create a branding opportunity for either paper straws (like the fun ones above) or reusable stainless steel straws. I’ve seen some fun options for collapsible straws as well with the logo on the case. I can see logo reusable straws being an ideal marketing idea for food or beverage manufacturers, wellness programs or environmental services.
Tech items continue to be a favorite way for companies to brand themselves with employee gifts, trade show giveaways and general swag. Tech organizers are especially popular for companies with a mobile workforce or for trade show giveaway ideas. Everyone has an abundance of power cords, adapters and accessories to keep track of and with the variety of style and price ranges available it makes these a cool corporate gift. We are really loving the Ruckman Tech Roll above for its hip look and feel and the fact that you can order only 1 with your logo if you like.
Bags continue to be one of the most popular overall categories for swag, but the new trend is the rucksack look for backpacks and other bags. This gives bags a younger vibe with a more retail look. Imprint options for your logo go beyond screen printing or embroidery as well. We can do full color patches (like on the backpack above), debossed leather patch or full color transfer depending on the bag style you choose. Combing a cool bag with a creative decoration gives you a memorable swag bag giveaway item.
Internet security and safety concerns continue to grow on a daily basis, and honestly freak me out when I think about someone watching me through my webcam, phone camera or even my smart TV!! Webcam covers are an inexpensive giveaway item with a big impact. Choose from mini sizes for smart phones or full size for desktops, laptops and tablets in bulk or add a custom backer card. Or do a set to cover both! With their compact size they make an excellent option for a direct mail promotion or trade show giveaway.
