My Top Ten Suggestions For Promotional Gifts This Christmas

I thought it might be helpful if I showed you some of the more popular ideas that we offer for printed promotional gifts for Christmas – who knows, one of them might catch your attention. Maybe you’re gearing up for a Christmas staff party and are looking for something quirky to hand out, or perhaps you’d like to just add a smile to your customers faces by sending them ‘something’…. whatever your motivation, there’s always a solution I can find for you.

So, in the tradition of the Top 40 countdown, let’s take a look at the movers and shakers in the promotional gifts Christmas shopping lists…

Number Ten

Promotional Wall PlannersWall Planners

Always a popular item with office managers everywhere.
If you get this right, and the planner goes up on the wall, this is a promotional gift that just keeps giving.
We offer them in two different sizes (A1 or A2), You can choose from either a normal calendar year, or an academic year.
The colours and tints will be printed to compliment your corporate colours, so all you need to think about is what you want printed on the top and bottom of each one – easy!
Supplied flat packed and with prices kept the same as last year.

The minimum print run we offer is just 100 planners, and the pricing starts at £3.50 each.

Number Nine

Promotional Candle LightCandle Lights

You simply have to see these in action to appreciate how powerful they can be. I’ve walked into a corporate evening event, with the lights dimmed over the tables, and seen a wonderful asmospheric sight. Each table had ten of these candles strategically placed in the centre, all giving out that gently flickering candle effect, and best of all, the hosts’ logo was printed onto each one wishing the delegates a safe onward journey. I can tell you the guests on my table were all clambering to get their hands on one to take home – a promotional gift – rushing to get their hands on one!!!
Now imagine your guests giving the same reaction? It’s these little gestures that bring a smile to your staff or customers faces that ensure the gift is kept, re-used, and acts as a constant reminder of a great event/company.

The minimum print run we offer is just 100 candle lights, and the pricing starts at £3.75 each.

Number Eight

Promotional USB Memory SticksUSB Memory Sticks

My website has well over a hundred different styles and options for you to choose from, and this particular category of promotional gift has been on our ‘Best Seller’ lists for some time.
Now whilst this isn’t a gift specifically for Christmas – it’s just such a popular item that simply have to put it on our Top ten List – It’s certainly a gift that will be appreciated.

With pretty much all of the USB memory Sticks we have on offer, the minimum print run starts at just 50 units. Not bad eh?Pricing for USB Memory Sticks is dependent upon three factors: memory size required, print colours required, quantity required.

Contact us when you’ve found a design that you like, and we’ll give you our best price.

Number Seven

Christmas Sticky BugsChristmas Sticky Bugs

Yes I know, these aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but they ARE very popular, great fun, and pretty much guaranteed to bring a smile to the recipients face.
I’ve seen these sprinkled on table tops, a bit like wedding favours or confetti would be, but the difference is, these are picked up and kept. They each have a little ribbon that they sit on that carrys your logo and message. It could be as simple as ‘Seasons Greetings from (insert your name/logo here)’? Once again, these would work well at corporate events, or even around the office, but I’ve seen them given to sales reps to hand out when they travel around meeting their customers.

Available in several ‘Festive’ characters – there’s a Snowman Bug (as seen in this e-shot)  or the Angel BugReindeer Bug, or maybe the Santa Bug?

The minimum print run on any of the Sticky Festive Bugs is 250 units, with pricing starting at just 43p each – now that’s what I call a ‘low cost smile generator’.

Number Six

Christmas Tree Tinned SweetsTin Of Yummy Sweets

Oh alright – it’s not really called a ‘Tin of Yummy Sweets’ – it’s correct name is ‘Christmas Tree Tinned Sweets’.
I love the look of this gift, and trust me – the sweets inside are yummilicious. The jelly beans are available in a range of 36 colours and flavours – so although we’re showing you red and white beans in our image, maybe you could find two or more colours to compliment your brand identity? If you’re happy for us to use the artwork as shown in the image, maybe adding your logo and a simple message, we wont even charge for the ‘Origination’ on this product.

With the minimum print run starting at just 50 units, and pricing from £11.50 each, this is one tasty gift.

Number Five

2013 Promotional Pocket Diaries2013 Pocket Diaries

Contrary to popular belief – diaries ARE NOT going out of fashion. Lots of my clients use them to promote their business very successfully.
Not everyone uses their phone, or an app, or their ‘Outlook’ function on their computer to control their diary, some folk still like to have a notebook with all the important stuff in, and so using a promotional pocket diary as a corporate gift is STILL relevant.
These small but useful pocket diaries come in a pretty big range of vinyl covers – maybe there’s one to compliment your corporate identity?
Like the wall planners – if you get this right, this is a gift that will be kept and used for the whole year!!!

Minimum print runs commence at just 250 diaries, and pricing from just 99p each!!!

Number Four

Desk Blotter CalendersDesk Blotter Calenders

We offer these desk blotter pads in two sizes, A3 and A2, but it’s the lower priced A3 one that’s most popular.
Consisting of 50 x sheets of 80gsm paper, glued along one edge so you tear off the top sheet when it’s full of scribbles.
We work with companies that ask us to print all manner of artwork onto these pads – and the pads are so big, you can let your creative juices run wild, but, at this time of year, why not print a calender along one edge of them? Need a hand with the design? We’ve got standard templates we can let you use, where we then colour code the artwork to your corporate style, and of course, any other additions like your logo, telephone number, web address, etc, etc can all be added.

The minimum print run starts at just fifty pads, but most folk buy at the more competitive quantity of 100 where the price per pad is £2.60.

Number Three

Christmas Card MousematChristmas Card Mousemat
This dual function mousemat sells all year round, usually for invitations to launch parties and events, but it’s also used as a greetings card.
The Christmas card part of the product is removeable, and so after you’ve got your seasons greetings over with – you then have a fully functioning mousemat for use all year round. Clever eh?It’s a great way of getting around the annual problem of ‘should we buy a Christmas card or not’?The minimum print run on this product is just 250 mousemats, and pricing starts at £2.50 each

Number Two

Quality Metal PensQuality Metal Pens

I’m often asked, “Have we left it too late to get a decent, quality pen”? – and the answer us usually ‘No’ – it’s in my nature to always find a soliution for my clients!!
The next question regarding quality metal pens is “Do I have to buy hundreds”? – and again, the answer is usually ‘No’.
The pen I’m showing you here is just one example of the hundreds available – it’s the Pierre Cardin Louvre Fountain Pen – a really nice pen to see and hold with some beautiful engraved detailing onto the barrel. The pen comes in it’s own velvet lined gift case, and of course, we engrave and personalise each pen for you. Should you wish, and at no extra cost, we can even engrave each pen with individual names.

The minimum quantity for this particular pen is really low – just 25 pens – and pricing at that quantity starts at £12.50 each.

Number One

Personalised Snow GlobesPersonalised Snow Globes

Your customers will love them!!! Just shake them up and watch the snow flakes fall – all with your own artwork in the background.
You can put anything you want into these seasonal giveaways – anything from a company logo with a message to a ‘team photo’ – they all work.
Best of all, I believe this is a gift that will be packed away with the Christmas decorations and brought out again, year after year, after year – now that’s what I call ‘effective’.

Minimim print runs are nice and low, starting at just 50 units with pricing from £6.00 each
