Giveaways are all about creating an impression of your brand, and trendy promotional items can give you an extra boost. By putting your name on some of the most effective promotional products, you can start conversations, demonstrate that your brand cares about quality or share a must-have item that will keep your brand top-of-mind for a long time to come.


Get seen with co-branding

Co-branding with popular bags, apparel and drinkware is an excellent way to show how much you care about the quality of the products and services you offer. Co-branding also gives your business a boost—you’re sharing space with a brand your customers already love!

Giving your customers trendy promotional items like a PUMA® jacket, an Eddie Bauer® laptop bag or a Contigo® tumbler will help ensure that your giveaways—and your brand—get lots of impressions.


Charge up your brand

After the majority of smartphone manufacturers chose to adopt the Qi® wireless charging standard, more than 271 million Qi-certified phones were shipped in 2018. And as this technology continues to grow in popularity, wireless chargers are sure to become an even trendier promotional item.

Give your customers the best of both worlds with dual-purpose items like a wireless power bank and phone stand, Bluetooth® speaker with a wireless charging pad or water bottle with a wireless charger to ensure your giveaway gets lots of use.


Keep them refreshed

More and more communities and companies are eliminating single-use plastics, making reusable straws a hot commodity. These decisions frequently make the news, so customers are likely to be interested in talking about—and getting—a reusable straw of their own. Offer customers a telescopic or buildable straw that fits easily into a pocket, purse or bag to ensure customers keep your brand nearby.


Give them a soft touch

A soft-touch coating adds a little extra comfort to everyday items, making them some of the most effective promotional products. Customers will appreciate a soft touch pen for jotting notes or a soft touch tumbler to hold their favorite drink.
