Did you know the United States boasts five climate types, ranging from tropical to temperate to polar? No matter what type of weather your audience has, chances are they may experience extremes from time to time. Whether they’re braving a deep freeze, beating the summer heat, or enduring wind and rain, we’ve got useful promotional item ideas to help them withstand the elements.

Brave the cold

When the temperatures are chilly, share useful promotional items to help them weather the cold. Hand warmers are just the thing to keep their mitts toasty warm at an outdoor festival or sporting event. Tuck the warmers in a swag bag, or have a basket handy at entry. Need a nice gift that gives warm, fuzzy feelings about your brand? A bundle-up set containing a scarf, hat and gloves, is perfect for everyday use or to keep in the car for emergencies.

Let them know your business is there for them in all types of weather. When Old Man Winter blows in, an ice scraper mitten helps keep their hands toasty warm while they brush (or scrape) their windshield. Ensure they’re prepared for any type of weather when you give a weather station clock as a birthday or milestone anniversary gift.

Beat the heat

When it’s so hot they’re wilting, these useful promotional item ideas can save the day! A car sun shade will reflect the sun’s rays—and your brand messaging—everywhere they park. And a misting fan can help keep recipients cool as a cucumber at outdoor festivals and concerts, the beach and more. Add these items to your next gift basket raffle or give as a contest prize.

Don’t forget to promote hydration, hydration, hydration. A large-capacity water bottle helps them get their eight glasses per day—and then some. And a cooler tote allows them to take their favorite beverages on the go. These drink carriers make a perfect gift to reward your top performers for their sweat, determination and hard work.

Weather the storm

Umbrellas make wonderful gifts for just about anyone on your list. An inverted umbrella helps keep recipients dry in the heaviest of downpours, while a folding umbrella is compact enough to tuck in a bag or briefcase. Let recipients know your brand is there for them, rain or shine, when you give one of these useful promos as a new-client or thank-you gift.

A branded rain jacket makes a fitting welcome gift for new hires. They’ll feel like part of the team every time they wear their new gear to work, while running errands or when walking the dog. Speaking of dogs, help them keep their four-legged friends dry—and in style—with a doggie raincoat imprinted with your brand.

Resist the wind

As the saying goes, “you can’t change the direction of the wind.” But you can offer promotional giveaways to help them endure it. An attractive windbreaker makes a great wellness gift to help employees keep their fitness goals on track. Add a pair of wind- and water-resistant pants as a reward for achieving their exercise objectives.

Don’t let a windy day blow your marketing efforts away. These outdoor sail signs are vented so they can rotate freely as the wind blows. And strong gusts are no match for this vented golf umbrella—it’s resistant to inverting under the windiest of conditions. Add these to your outdoor event checklist for an easy-breezy day.

Your brand to the rescue

With these useful promotional items, your customers and staff will be prepared for any type of weather. And they’ll have your brand to thank for coming to their rescue.
