Just like water and fresh air, sunshine is a crucial ingredient to a healthy life. In fact, studies show that 10 to 20 minutes of sun per day helps people get their recommended daily dose of Vitamin D. But along with fun in the summer sun comes complications: sunburns, scrapes and the increased need to stay hydrated.
Offering summer promotional items can help customers and employees make the most of every sunny day. By giving safety promotional gifts, your brand can help make all their beach trips, hikes and sporting events a little safer.
Accidents happen, whether it’s a skinned knee on a playground or small scratch while walking in the woods. When those minor injuries occur, your recipients will be happy you gave them safety promotional gifts, like one of these first-aid kits.

According to the CDC, everyone should use a minimum of an SPF 15 sunscreen every time they go outside.

According to Mayo Clinic, men should consume 15.5 cups of water per day, while women should drink about 11.5 cups. Reusable water bottles make it easier to get the recommended amount of water, especially when they’re out and about.

The Lil’ Shorty Aluminum Sport Bottle is more compact than the average water bottle and has a carabiner clip, making it easy to carry, or attach to a bag or purse.
