5 Tips for Choosing the Best Promotional Product Holiday Gifts

Believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner. Start planning now to be prepared to show appreciation for your staff members, clients, and prospective customers with these five easy holiday gift buying tips.

1. Order Early
The holiday season sneaks up on people—the warm fall weather lulls people into forgetting that winter, and the holiday season, will soon be here. Don’t wait until it's too late, or you'll run the risk of having your favorite holiday gift selling out. Hot sellers seem to run out of stock each season, so order now to avoid out of stocks and rush charges.

2. Be Inspired by Retail
Your gift recipients enjoy holiday gifts that are similar to what they see as hot sellers in the stores. Think brand names (like Cutter & Buck for garments, Godiva chocolates, or Cross pens) and keep an eye on popular trends such as fitness bands for gift inspirations. Another retail trend to emulate in your Holiday plans is gift packaging, such as taking a stainless steel tumbler and packaging it in a custom gift box that will enhance the gift experience.

5 More Reasons to Work With a Promotional Products Professional

While it's true that the internet puts a variety of products at your fingertips, the best way to ensure that your promotional products are going to work effectively for you is by working with a Promotional Products Professional. In a previous post, we shared the top 5 benefits of working with a Promotional Products expert. But, here are five MORE ways a professional can help you make your marketing more effective.

Professionals go beyond the product to help you meet goals

Successful promotion campaigns don't just happen by chance. To realize your goals, your promotional products program must be carefully planned, taking into consideration the audience, budget and the ultimate result you seek. While you can purchase a product anywhere, an experienced distributor can help you solve problems, plan out a program to meet your needs, and get the results you want.

Professionals are in tune with industry trends

You want your promotional efforts to be effective, and your product professional can help. Professionals are in tune with the latest trends and hottest new items, and this can lead to making a connection between your product or service and the perfect giveaway to match your company's goals. Online specials are showcasing the products that the online company wants to sell you - rather than making a personalized decision with a product professional to decide the best item for you to buy.

Promotional Product Umbrellas Will Have You Singing in the Rain

While we may not think of umbrellas until we need them, their usefulness goes beyond keeping us dry or protected from the sun. They are also huge brand builders! With a retention rate of 14 months, umbrellas printed with your company logo or promotional message will continue to tell your brand message for a long time, making them the perfect choice for your next promotional campaign.

Here are some powerful findings from a 2016 survey by Advertising Specialty Institute:

Umbrellas make a lasting impression

Over their lifespan, umbrellas generate over 1,300 impressions. This high number of impressions means a very low cost per impression for your advertising message and a highly effective use of your promotional budget.

Umbrellas have longevity

Umbrellas are kept on average for more than a year, far above the typical retention rate of 8 months for other imprinted promotional items. The longevity of this useful item continues to create goodwill while displaying your brand for many months, or even years, making umbrellas an incredibly effective advertising medium.
