Tote bags, hats, water bottles — they all work fine, but even if your promotional product is useful, appealing, and on brand, you still want something with kick. What gives you your own wow factor depends on your industry, but every industry can afford to step out of the comfort zone once in a while when it comes to promotion. If you’re willing to try something new, you could be remembered as the company who pays attention to what your people want and doesn’t settle for same-old same-old. Read on for some unique promotional products we think will keep you top of mind.
Some Unique Promotional Products
Safeguard is proof that promotional apparel doesn’t have to be the status quo. Show hospitality to staff and clients in different regions by staying aware of what they will wear in different seasons and get them something with a practical application and a great fit. A Verden knit toque in an urban-chic shade is perfect for a chilly winter or early spring. Or what about a premium water resistant or waterproof jacket, ideal for spring rains, or an insulated, multi-textured model to zip up over business wear? Top shelf athletic gear with moisture wicking technology is always a win, no matter the season. For fashion, fit, and reasonable price points, you won’t find a better selection than Safeguard. Premium promo apparel, with help from Safeguard, is proof that sticking to what’s practical doesn’t always have to be safe (though it can be cozy). With our spring gear, you can bet those who are wearing them will be on point.
Eats and treats
If you’re going to gift employees or clients with food, make it a treat they won’t quickly forget — even if they quickly eat it. Go all out with a tower of deluxe Belgian chocolates. Personalize a charcuterie plate. Or go a simple, yet unconventional, route with a box of gourmet spices. And why not use containers and wrappings as an opportunity to show off your mad relationship skills? Nestle a bottle of wine in a logo engraved wine box, use it at your next event, and watch the impression it makes. Or celebrate the work anniversary of an employee with a chic espresso maker or French press. Safeguard can even customize unique yet frugal promotional products like paper collars for kegs of beer. From the cheese course to drinks to dessert, you can show off your style and make an impression with fun and high-end gastronomic gifts, no matter your budget.
Here’s an area of unique promo products in which you’ll always find something new. Clients on the go will love receiving one of our credit card thin power banks. It fits easily in a wallet or the pocket of a purse, and recharges handheld devices. Featuring a 2500 mAh or 4000 mAh battery, it also has built-in Android micro-USB and iPhone 8-pin USB. Other budget-friendly options include an elastic phone leash, to keep phones secure while exercising, and a discrete, clip-on webcam privacy cover. Now if you really want to take your promotional tech product through the roof (and we’re talking to a Star Trek level) consider gifting a client with a virtual keyboard. That’s right, a virtual keyboard. It projects the image of a keyboard onto a flat surface, and by typing directly onto that surface, lasers pick up finger movements, allowing the user to literally write on a beam of light. Whatever dimension you’re gifting from, our tech products show you think both practically and creatively when it comes to your people, and that you can flaunt your cutting edge.
Back to nature
What if your constituencies like to stick a little closer to nature? Branded packets of seeds or sprout pouches for flowers and decorative grass show whimsy and eco-consciousness and give your staff or customers a little taste of the outdoors. For your health-conscious folks, consider an aromatherapy diffuser with the name of your company, along with oil samples, and just imagine how it will make your clients feel to know that you’ve invested in such a thoughtful item for their home. An added bonus is, whenever they smell freesia or lemongrass, they may think of your company! A yoga mat is another item that’s easy to customize and has very high appeal for a perfectly targeted audience.
Don’t forget kids
But not everyone spends all their time with adults. What about unique promo products for kids? Sometimes you’re interacting with schools and families, too. And when it comes to kids, don’t give them throwaway bric-a-brac or silly toys. Unless they are four years old, they probably won’t use it. Kids like things with interesting details, and they like things they can actually use in school, like high quality school supplies and insulated lunch boxes. They also love things that have utility while also letting them feel cool around their friends. Ever tried gold or silver shoelaces? And if there’s anything in right now, it’s retro. Introduce older elementary school or middle school students to an 80s or 90s trend, and believe it or not, your cool factor just went up five notches. A neon slap bracelet, introduced with a tutorial on how to use one, and with the expectation that some will immediately start slapping their neighbors, could be a great way to show kids you’re relevant. Young adults will love them, too.
With Safeguard, any promotional item can become a turnkey. We get our energy from leveraging details to build your employee and customer loyalty and prospect interest. For your next unique promotional product to keep your brand top-of-mind, give us a call.
