What makes prospects, clients and staff hang on to promotional products? According to a recent survey, What’s more, they’re likely to hang onto them for a long time. Nearly half of respondents kept a useful or practical promotional giveaway for more than five years.

If you’re looking for the right promo products that your target audience is sure to reach for again and again, look no further. These useful giveaway ideas are sure to have some serious staying power.


Worthwhile writing utensils

Everyone needs a pen at some point, and when your customer reaches for one, you want your brand’s logo front and centre. A classic pen is the perfect choice to include in your new hire’s welcome materials or to give away at your front desk. Attending a healthcare trade show or event? Syringe Pens are sure to be a hit. A 4-colour stylus pen is a multifunction space-saver that will be appreciated by hybrid employees or clients attending a training session. Or for a practical giveaway that’s still fun and unique, an emoji pen included in your customers’ orders will stand out and make them smile.


Handy kitchen helpers

The kitchen is sometimes referred to as the heart of the home, and custom imprinted kitchen gadgets will make an impression and create positive associations for your brand. A 3-Step Lid in a bright colour is an excellent choice for a giveaway at a retail store or restaurant. Trying to increase sales at your farmer’s market booth, nutrition supply store or market? Include a veggie spiralizer imprinted with your logo with each customer purchase. Useful giveaway ideas, like a grill thermometer or colourful whisk, make thoughtful additions to a gift basket for a silent auction or client who loves to cook.


Convenient calendars

Keep your employees and customers on schedule with helpful calendars and planners featuring your organization’s logo. A desk pad calendar gives your staff plenty of room to write down tasks and reminders, while a Calendar Magnet can stick on a customer’s fridge, filing cabinet or magnetic whiteboard for a quick glance whenever they need to confirm an important date. Looking for a classy option for a VIP client? A Moleskine® Daily Planner or weekly desk planner, along with a handwritten note, make a special thank-you or anniversary gift. Bonus: They’ll have eyes on your brand the entire year!


Durable drinkware

Branded drinkware is not only useful, but your logo is sure to draw a lot of eyes when a prospect or employee takes their tumbler, mug or bottle with them on the go. A fun mug with straw or glass tumbler with bamboo lid are perfect for busy clients juggling priorities. Encourage participation in a hydration challenge with a bottle with tethered lid so they can easily track their water intake. For coffee-loving patrons, a vacuum tumbler and a gift card to their favourite local coffee shop are sure to impress.
