If you’re looking for ways to boost your brand, tech giveaways are an effective way to go. In fact, according to a Global Ad Impressions Study, most Canadian customers who hang on to tech giveaways like USB drives and power banks do so because they are useful in their everyday lives.

When you want to make customer connections or find a perfect gift for a favourite client, these top tech giveaways will help you power up your promotional game.

Speakers help brands connect with customers’ interests

A great conversation can help build relationships. In 2021, around seven million Canadians listened to streaming music services. What’s more, one in three listens to podcasts. So asking, “What do you like to listen to?” can open the door to a good chat.

Your brand can help them enjoy their favourite sounds. The Stark Wireless Speaker makes a great addition to a home or office desk, while the Harlow Light-Up Logo Bluetooth® Headphones let them listen on the go (while brightening up their world).

If you want a tech giveaway idea with a twist, the Britton Pop Up COB Lantern with Wireless Speaker combines a helpful safety lantern with a speaker on top. And the Boost Wireless Charger Speaker can power their devices while they listen.

Budget items for smartphones—and events

Trade shows and community events are great places to connect with customers and share tech swag. There may be no better way to connect than with smartphones, which over 32 million Canadians own.

Maximize your budget so you can share tech giveaways with as many booth visitors as possible. Check out the Razor Phone Stand, Neptune Tech Cleaning Cloth or Bamboo Accent Duo Charging Cable. Customers are sure to take this top tech giveaway everywhere they take their phones (which is likely just about everywhere!).

If you’re looking for a higher-end gift or contest prize, a Seek Wireless Tracker helps them locate their gear, while a Compact Power Bank can give your brand (and their phone) a little extra staying power.

A techy gift for every occasion

Though a bag may not be the first thing that comes to mind when brainstorming the best tech giveaway ideas, a laptop bag makes an ideal gift in a variety of situations. Because they’re useful, attractive, and capable of holding a laptop, tablet and other gear, bags make an excellent giveaway for:

  • An employee’s first day
  • Customer anniversaries
  • Holidays
  • Door prizes

The Life in Motion Primary Laptop Backpack or the Portland Laptop Briefcase Bag will get lots of use by anyone who carries a connected device or accessory.

USB drives: Practical tech giveaways to share information

Although cloud storage is a popular way to keep and back up files, a slow or nonexistent internet connection can prevent access at the most inconvenient times. USB drives ensure files are available when and where they are needed. And USB drives are one of the top tech giveaways in Canada.

Both the Clipster USB Drive and the Stealth USB Drive can be clipped to keys or a lanyard to keep on hand for:

  • Presentations
  • Homework or resumés
  • Company documents like blueprints, reports, videos or other large files.

Give your brand a power boost with the best tech giveaways

From thoughtful gifts to trade show swag, these top tech giveaways create connections. And every power bank, bag and Bluetooth speaker can help you power up your brand (and their device).
