Summer has arrived, with Vermonters trading winter coats and skis for flip flops and camping gear. This season is especially hot for outdoor promotional products, with a variety of items available for branding that emphasize being active and enjoying all that the outdoors has to offer.
Here are 10 of our favorite picks for branded outdoor promotional products.
1. Bamboo Straws
Summer is the time to sip cool drinks on hot days. Often, you may be enjoying these drinks with a straw. Plastic straws are being banned in more and more locations, and reusable alternatives can be used on the go or in the comfort of your own home. Branded straws, including a biodegradable bamboo option, show your brand’s commitment to sustainability.
2. Roasting Sticks
This promo item caught my eye! Smores are a Summer staple, and a branded roasting set is perfect for toasting marshmallows, hot dogs, or anything else over a campfire.
3. Reusable Water Bottles
Reusable and recycled bottles are a top promotional item any time of the year, but going into Summer they are an especially popular choice. As people spend more time outside in hot weather, they’ll want cold drinks handy. Insulated bottles help keep beverages cool for long periods of time and encourage the use of reusable versus plastic disposable bottles.
4. Cooling Towels
Whether you’re golfing or gardening, cooling towels are designed to help you stay cool during extended work or play. Simply soak the towel in water, wring it out, and wear it around your head or neck for a refreshing boost.
5. BBQ Set
A successful promo item is one that is used by the recipient. A quality branded BBQ set will not only be used but used in a location and situation that’s fun and personal: a family cookout.
Blankets are perfect to spread out on the grass for a day in the sun, or as a cover up on chilly nights under the stars. A gift of a branded blanket adds a personal touch, that can easily transition from use in the home to wherever your recipient’s travels take them.
A comfortable folding chair is a must-have for sporting events, beach days, camping, barbeques, and more! Branded chairs can be effective as prizes for event giveaways or as higher-end thank you gifts to top customers.
Whether it’s a drawstring bag for a day at the pool or a durable option for hikers, backpacks are used by people of all age groups and activity levels. And, bags are also the most visible of branded items, generating more impressions than any other promo product.
9. Koozies & Insulated Coolers
When the weather is hot, you’ve got to keep your food and drinks extra cool. Insulated bags, coolers, and Koozies are especially useful this time of year. They can be used in a variety of environments, ensuring your brand is seen by a wide audience.
No barbecue or day at the beach is complete without a Frisbee! Branded frisbees have been a popular promotional item for nearly 50 years. Frisbees and flying discs make for inexpensive event giveaways that will send your brand soaring.
