Back To Campus Swag

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.

These mesh laundry bags come in a variety of colors to coordinate with your school colors

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.

Gifts of Appreciation for Nurses Week

Two years since the early stage of the pandemic, Healthcare workers are still under huge amounts of stress. Dealing with staffing shortages, longer hours, heavier patient loads and a myriad of other issues, Nurses are grateful for a showing of gratitude and appreciation. Take a look at these suggestions for nurses week or nurses day gift ideas from last year, then read on below for more ideas.

Individually wrapped cookies are great additions to a swag bag or we can put several into a custom printed box as an office gift or department gift everyone can share. Other individual treat ideas are trail mix, mints, chocolate (always my favorite) and so many others. Small and easy to hand out, individual food gifts are a great way to put a smile on every nurse’s face!

Self care is encouraged during high stress times and this diy lip balm kit encourages doing something fun outside of work and also creates high quality lip balm that will be fun to use. Includes everything needed to make five lip balm tins.

Items that are multi functional and useful are always one of my favorites to give and receive. Flashlights (can you ever have too many flashlights) fits the bill. For early morning or late night shifts they come in handy getting to and from the car. Stashed in the glove compartment they are always there for an emergency and you never know when you will need one at home. Adding a fun imprint to tie the gift to the occasion helps continue your message. Try a message such as: “Thank you for shining a light on patient care” , “You are a bright light” or “Nurses light the way”.

Tech items are one of our top categories for giveaways, gifts and general swag ideas. Charging cables and power banks continue to be at the top of the list. Qi chargers are increasingly popular for cordless charging at home or at work and come in a variety of styles and price ranges.

In addition to these items, the tried and true tote bags, lunch coolers and drinkware remain popular gift ideas as well. Let us help you find the newest trending styles for your Nurse’s Day and Nurses Week gift needs.
