People have been spending more time in their home kitchens over the past year, which means kitchen promotional items can provide a whole line of marketing tools you may not have considered before.
“Last year, many people really started to use their kitchens—and all those gadgets and small appliances they had purchased, but had not really used,” said Mae, 4imprint’s category manager for household and drinkware products. “With fewer options for dining out in 2020, cooking at home became essential. In 2021, some of those habits will stick around, and home cooking will likely continue to be a big part of everyone’s lives.”
Mae offered her expertise on finding just the right promotional kitchen gadgets and utensils to make life easier for your staff and customers—and get your brand noticed every time they’re in the kitchen whipping up those homemade meals.
Promote culinary confidence
“Being at home with limited access to shopping has spurred people to be more self-reliant and depend less on going to the grocery store,” Mae noted. In 2020, more people began growing their own produce, baking their own bread, and canning their own fruits and vegetables. Encourage customers to continue being self-reliant by mailing them a logoed Grow Your Own Pepper Garden. The kit includes three packages of pepper seeds, starter soil and wooden plant stakes. Or give your customers and prospects a Ceramic Planter Set. It comes with a bamboo stand, a peat pellet, and your choice of several herb, flower or tomato seeds.
Keep your branding fresh
“If people are making the investment in fresh food, they need a way to carry it home from the local farmers market. And then they’ll need to keep that food fresh until they use it,” Mae said. Kitchen promotional items are a great way to keep your message fresh as well.
For example, the Sprouts Produce Bag Set offers three sizes of drawstring bags in one handy, imprinted collection. And the Glass Food Storage with Lid is a perfect way to store leftover meals whether your staff is working from home or packing a lunch to eat on site.
Make sustainability easier with reusable kitchen promotional items
“Sustainability is what everyone is talking about now,” Mae explained. “We need to find ways to be nicer to the planet. One way is to choose products that can be reused.”
The Refresh® Mayon Vacuum Bottle is a product available only at 4imprint, and you can choose a standard, full-color or laser-engraved imprint. Plus, the Mayon’s vacuum insulation helps keep a beverage hot or cold longer. For a unique and affordable promo gift that can be used again and again, check out the Stainless and Ceramic Cutlery Set. The stainless steel utensils have ceramic handles for long-lasting use, and your logo is printed on the travel case.
Deliver dependable kitchen gadgets
“Meal delivery services aren’t anything new, but people do still need gadgets in their home to put the meal together,” Mae said. Here are some of Mae’s favorite promotional kitchen gadgets.
