Summer will soon be in full swing! Help customers squeeze out every drop of fun with summer gifts for clients. With so much being done virtually these days, gifts can bring an added bonus—people are 2.5 times more likely to have a positive opinion of promo product advertising versus online advertising. So you know they’ll appreciate these summer promotional gifts.

Garden gifts

Whether your clients are green thumb enthusiasts or novice seed sowers, a gardening kit is a gift they’re sure to dig. Package a metal gardening shovel and seed packets in a watering can. Don’t forget to include a list of top gardening tips. Send this fun gift to your long-time clients, thanking them for helping you grow your business.

If you’re looking for something with more mass appeal, try handing out plantable pins to every customer who walks into your store (or makes an online order). Or offer a complimentary pop up planter kit with every purchase.

Camping commodities

Help your clients gear up for an adventurous camping trip or a luxurious glamping adventure. Send customers who recently made a large purchase a fun tote to store their necessities. A vacuum camping mug is a great leave-behind or follow-up gift. If you want to boost engagement this summer, consider a social media giveaway. Ask people to share their favorite summer memory for a chance to win a prize, like a hammock or a reclining camp chair. These summery gifts are perfect for clients whether they like roughing it in the woods or cruising in an RV.

Poolside promos

What would summer be without swimming? Help clients keep cool by the pool with an attractive hat. Or send a pair of stylish aviator sunglasses to new prospects along with a note that says their business would brighten your day. You can also broadcast your brand colors and logo on a beach towel. Hand one out free with each purchase to leave a lasting impression. Celebrate the first day of summer by giving inflatable drink holders to everyone who visits your store. They’ll think of you all season long.

BBQ bonuses

Summer is the perfect time for a picnic. Send clients who refer new business a picnic basket to make organizing outdoor meals easy. Many customers expect a gift around the holidays, so surprise them by mailing a mid-summer gift, like a BBQ set or an oversized picnic blanket. Or share summer fun with all your followers by hosting a social media “cook-off” challenge. People can post their favorite BBQ recipe along with a picture of the finished product. Choose a random winner or designate a staff “committee” to pick the best recipe. A grill master apron makes a great prize.
