Novelty promotional items that give smiles

Laughter might be the best medicine, but a smile isn’t far behind. Studies show smiling may reduce stress and boost workplace performance.

That means that every time you share the grinning face of a MopTopper Stress Reliever, Smiley Guy Cell Phone Holder or Goofy Tissue Pack, you’ll bring a little less stress and a boost in workplace performance to everyone who lays eyes on them. You can give these fun promo items to a team that puts in extra time on a project. Or hand them out during a team-building exercise to get the group energized. Now that’s something worth smiling about.


Fun yet practical giveaways

While some novelty promotional items are all about fun, many are practical as well.

For example, there are several promotional novelty pens and other writing utensils that combine the serious with the surprising like the Maze Pen, five-fingered High-Five Highlighter and Potted Pen – Buttercup.

The Cinema Light Box Duo Charging Cable is a fun but useful giveaway for a trade show or event. Not only will it come in handy to power up their devices, but they can also create fun, interchangeable messages with the integrated cinema light box.

A Globe Beach Ball offers your customers the world—whether you run a travel agency, library or university. And an Inkbend Standard – Wrench is a perfect giveaway for your hardware store or handyman service.
