Custom Drinkware Makes Great Gifts During the Holiday Season

It’s that time of year again and the holiday season is upon us. While December is traditionally a slow month for most businesses (aside from retail stores that sell goods!), it’s the perfect time to show customers how much you appreciate their business with a gift personalized with your company logo.

 

Repeat Exposure – the gift that keeps on giving!

Personalized drinkware is an excellent choice for holiday gifts to show customers (and employees) that you appreciate them. Not only is drinkware reusable, but it is something everyone uses daily, putting your name in front of the customer time and time again (actually, with each sip!), providing you with repeat exposure while reminding them how much you appreciate their loyalty. Your thoughtful gift will remind customers of your brand long after the holidays are over.

Why Marketing with Promotional Giveaways Works

Creating a promotional giveaway with custom-branded products is a wonderful way to gain attention. A promotional giveaway is where a business gives away free products featuring its company logo to customers and potential customers to attract new business and build customer loyalty. It’s a way that allows you to connect with your current customers, and attract the attention of potential new customers.

 

Promotional Giveaways are Cost-Effective

Promotional giveaways are a low-cost, yet effective way to leave a lasting impression and keep your brand on the minds of your target audience. It’s cheaper and more effective than standard advertising and allows you to connect with your target audience.

Most people keep a promotional gift for an average of one year or longer depending on the product. Something like stainless steel drinkware or an umbrella will last for years, giving you extended exposure.

 

Creating Brand Recognition

In addition to keeping your name on the minds of your customers, it’s a great way to attract new customers. Others will see your custom product being used, and it will pique their interest and prompt them to reach out to your company to inquire about your business and its services.

 

Customer Appreciation

Promotional giveaways are ideal for showing your customers how much you appreciate them and their business. When people feel appreciated, it will increase their loyalty to your company. Items that people can use every day, like custom drinkware, is a great way to keep your name front and center so your brand is ever present on their mind.

 

Promotional Products that Work

While most custom products are a great way to promote your brand, some products do work better than others. Items such as custom bags, drinkware, pens, lip balm, umbrellas, and hand sanitizer are more effective than a one-use gimmick or gad items such as fidget spinners, stress toys, or other items that wear out or break easily.

When considering the kind of promotional product you want to represent your brand, consider long-lasting and useful items. Almost everyone owns a promotional pen or drinkware product. Why? Because they work. For instance, stainless steel drinkware is something that everyone can use, and use often. Drinkware that is versatile and can be used for both hot and cold beverages will give you more exposure than a plastic cup.

You also need to consider your audience. If you are a sports-related brand you might want to use a sports water bottle that can be used during workouts or while playing sports, or even hiking or biking.

 

The Bottom Line

No matter what type of business you are in, you can benefit from promotional giveaways. Whether you are attending tradeshows, hosting an event, or just looking for a way to show your customers how much you appreciate their business, promotional products are a winning marketing idea.

Promotional products are also a great way to show employee appreciation. And when you give your employees brand merchandise, they will often give it to a friend or family, giving you even more exposure.

Promotional Ideas for the Fall Season

The start of the school year signals the impending end of summer, and that fall will soon be here. Everyone will be excited about spending more time outside once the weather cools off a bit, and it’s a great time for outdoor events and activities. Below are just a few ideas to get you started.


School Events

Fall is a great time to hold a fundraiser for your local schools. Outdoor fairs and carnivals are always popular with the children and their families, and it’s a great way to raise money for your school. For the school itself, branding items with the school’s name and selling them at a table to earn money for the school, or even different clubs is a great idea. With all the folks that will be present at the event, you are sure to earn a fair amount of money to help fund your club.


Non-school branded items to giveaway during the event is a great idea too. You can easily offer to help your school by providing items imprinted with your logo to help sponsor the event. You could provide cups to help them serve drinks in, and offer free gifts the school could use in raffles or as prizes. Keytags, sunglasses, and sunscreen are just a few ideas that would make wonderful giveaway items for games and raffles.


Fall Themed Contests

A great way to boost brand reputation is by creating a contest for current and/or potential customers. You can offer a big prize (cash, your services, products, etc.) as well as smaller prizes. Consider tote bags, umbrellas, and drinkware as they make great gifts that will get a lot of repeat exposure.


Sponsor a Chili Cookoff

With the cooler air, fall is a great time to hold an outdoor event, and what’s better than a chili cookoff! You can provide the venue and let people from all around enter the contest to see who can make the best chili! You can provide branded items that participants can use during the event, as well as prizes for the winners and runner-ups, as well as hold smaller guest contests to win other branded items.

Glasses and Barware
