Kick Off Your Summer Event in Style with Flip Flop Promotional Items

From “National Cherry Pie Day” to “National Have a Picnic Day”, it seems like everything under the sun has its own day of recognition, including our favorite summertime staple, the flip flop! National Flip Flop Day falls on June 19, so to celebrate we suggest not only implementing a casual flip flop Friday policy, but also handing out some flip flip promotional items to kick off your summer trade show or event in style!

Flip Flop Beach Towel

Everyone can use another beach towel! Between forgetting one at home or having to use the tiny hotel towels at the pool, this flip flop beach towel is an awesome welcome gift for any tropical locale conference or trade show your company may be attending. This towel is also made of 100% cotton, which means it’s ultra soft and absorbent.

We don’t know about you, but chocolate is the way to our hearts, and we can bet it’s the same for your customers, too! These chocolate flip flops are ideal for welcome and hospitality bags as well as favors for your next company event. This item also comes with a variety of colored ribbons to choose from to perfectly match your event theme or brand colors.


Flip Flop Stress Reliever

Stress balls are always a promotional item favorite, but this spin the traditional stress reliever shape makes this item fun for summer. The flip flop stress reliever is also a good fit for those with a tight budget that need a good bang for their buck.

Flip Flop Bottle Opener

Summertime is the season of beaches, BBQs and brews, so be sure your brand is always on hand when it’s time to pop the top with the flip flop bottle opener key chain. The bottle opener key chain is another budget-friendly option and comes in the colors black, green, purple, red, royal blue, and silver.

Nautical Flip Flop Frame

With navy and white stripes, rope detailing and a fire engine red anchor as the flip flop’s charm, this frame would work perfectly with any nautical or Americana themed event. Whether it’s a Fourth of July BBQ or your company’s annual picnic, this is a great event souvenir people can hang in their cubicle.


Flip Flops in Every Color

If your event involves breaking it down on the dance floor or a cocktail hour on the beach, you might want to consider getting actual flip flops as your promotional item of choice. Our flip flops come in a range of sizes and colors, and they also come in a mesh drawstring bag so guests can sanitarily fit them in their suitcase after your event.
