High on the list of requirements for a memorable company picnic is a menu of delicious food. Perhaps you are going the traditional potluck route and your guests will bring most of the goodies. Or maybe you’re providing all the eats and will be grilling or even catering the meal. In any case, you’ll need plates, like the 7″ Compostable Paper Plates and utensils like the Clip It Portable Cutlery Set. Printed plates give the table settings a sense of “family,” and the branded cutlery sets make a great parting gift after the festivities are over. Brighten your table with Paper Tailgater Sets (paper plates, cups and napkins with your logo, plus unimprinted plastic utensils). Fight germs by making sure every guest and food preparer gets a convenient Hand Sanitizer with Carabiner.
Warm weather and sun mean fun times, but when you throw in a few party games, some football tossing and youngsters running around, hydration is key. When your employees and their guests get to keep a logo sport bottle or cup as a souvenir, you’ll see smiles for miles. The Crackle Gel Freezable Sport Bottle (20 oz.) helps keep their drink cold longer—and the entire bottle can be popped into the freezer. Your name looks cool on its crackle design, too. Turn sipping into silly fun with the Slurpy Tumbler with Crazy Straw. Kids will love it, and everyone will remember who gave them the terrific tumbler. The Full-Color Pocket Coolie is a fun, easy way to make sure everyone gets a branded gift that helps keep their drinks cool and their hands dry. Keep the cold drinks flowing with the Coleman® 2-Gallon Party Stacker Cooler. These imprinted coolers are perfect for door prizes, youth sports, construction contractors and much more.
Fun and games:
Keeping your picnickers entertained is the key to a successful party. Children and young adults will enjoy Sport Flyers or classic outdoor games, like the Bean Bag Toss Game. Create some casino-like excitement with a few useful imprinted awards, such as soft coolers, bag chairs and picnic sets. Then let each guest spin the Tabletop Spinning Wheel. Or hold a trivia contest to earn chances at the spinning wheel. If your picnic will stretch into the evening hours, consider giving away Blinking Sunglasses.
Kick back and relax:
Perhaps the best thing about picnics is the relaxation. Find a shady spot, kick back and do absolutely nothing. The Adirondack Recliner will give your picnickers (as well as customers and prospects) a comfortable chair so they can nap in style. A low-tech, go-anywhere alternative is the water-resistant Stow-N-Go Picnic Blanket, which folds into a pocket-sized pouch with a carabiner clip. No shade? No problem! Give them the Beach Umbrella with Clamp so they can have instant protection from harsh sun, bird bombs and surprise showers. It clamps to a beach chair or table and has a flexible shaft that adjusts to the perfect position. Finally, a great gift for anyone venturing outdoors is the Pro-Sport Sunscreen and Lip Balm Kit, which features a tube of SPF-30 sunscreen and a stick of lip balm in a handy, reusable printed mesh bag. These are perfect giveaways for any company gathering, healthcare office, resort, motel or recreation center.
