If you’re planning a summer outing or corporate function this year, consider promotional branding items as a complimentary door gift. Businesses will often host or sponsor a summer event as a rewarding and team networking opportunity for staff. Treat them not only to the event itself and much needed day of fun, but also inspire them with a company branded token of your appreciation. Build enthusiasm and loyalty around your company brand and encourage employees to be proud of their career.
Branded Polos & Tees
Consider offering your teams a commemorative tee shirt, featuring your company logo and annual outing design. Your staff will appreciate a wearable, and your tee will get additional brand mileage when the tee is worn year round. Maybe offer the branded polo as a gift to high ranking managers or staff with notable achievements. Clothing gifts provide the employee with a lasting product and your business with the added promotional branding opportunity.
Regardless of your venue or theme, a drawstring or strapped bag can offer a variety of functions and would be a welcomed door prize with your employees. Stuff the bag with summertime essentials including bottled waters, sunscreen, hand-held fans or reusable ice packs. Make sure each item you include features your company logo and website.
Hats & Headwear
Summer means fun in the sun and is a good time of year to wear a ball cap or sun hat for protection. Consider offering your staff and guests their own company branded headwear at your event. If your outing is outdoors, hats or caps might be the perfect door prize.
Sporting & Outdoors
Take advantage of seasonal hobbies by handing out branded golf balls, binoculars or beach towels. Reward your employees by acknowledging their hard work and downtime favorite pastimes. Maybe give away coolers, imprinted with your logo of course, full of tasty beverages. For drawings or larger gift ideas, assemble themed groups of items. For example, a fisherman’s dream package that includes rod, reel and branded folding chairs. Another excellent summer adventure you can complement with promotional products is camping. Give away imprinted compasses, tents or cushions. Be sure to include the bug repellent too!
Families and individuals alike enjoy traveling during the summer months. Consider awarding exemplary staff with company branded luggage pieces. Or go smaller with company branded windshield sun shields. Offer TSA approved travel kits or branded travel bags, ideal for flying.
The tech gift idea list is long and can accommodate a variety of price ranges. Employees will love functional gadgets or cool accessories. Company branded earbuds, portable phone chargers or speakers would be well received smaller gifts. Branded company phone or tablet cases and pens are also handy. These gifts will more than likely be carried by team members year-round.
If your summer event plans to acknowledge or award select employees, you may need a more substantial gift. Engrave a luxury watch or kitchen stand mixer. Grill out at your outing and then give away the grill itself!
