How many ways can you think of to use promotional gifts?
More often than not people think of major advertising campaigns with printed promotional pens and eye-catching logo printed stress balls. Large advertising campaigns are indeed the perfect time to source your favourite promotional merchandise but what about smaller events?
Promotional products do not need to be purchased in massive quantities. Nicer quality promotional products can be purchased in very small quantities, even as few as one and engraved with someone’s name and/or logo.
This is often done around the holiday season when business people let their hair down and plan office Christmas parties and New Year get-togethers. Really, any event is perfect for promotional products! There are a large number of promotional gifts that can be used to commemorate special anniversaries, retirement days or top achiever awards.
In the past month alone, I have been contacted by a number of people looking for small quantities of top quality gifts. One woman was looking for table favours for her wedding and special gifts for the best man and bridesmaids. She found just what she was looking for from the large selection of promotional watches, metal coasters, engraved glasses and pocket mirrors on offer.
Another woman was planning a family reunion and specifically asked for mini digital photo frames to mark the day. We had a special family logo drawn up and engraved on the special commemorative gifts along with the date of the party.
The same person also had pictures of each family members printed onto t-shirts that were worn on the day. She told me that everyone felt a bit silly in them but they really helped make the day.
What other occasions can you think of that could benefit from promotional products?
Well allow me introduce a few more ideas to you. How about big birthday parties such as sweet sixteen parties? You could also use promo gifts to commemorate a special club event or to mark the end of an agonising charity run. I think you get the idea.
These gifts are all about making a special event even more special. People love to take something home with them to remember the day. Promotional gifts need not be expensive to be appreciated. In fact, it is often the low cost but usable products such as metal pens, t-shirts and desk clocks that get the most use and really do their job.
No matter what size your party or event may be, there are promotional products that will work perfectly to make the day or evening even better. Personalised promotional merchandise will make your event a day to remember.
