When choosing what promotional items would best suit your company, it is important to consider what type of image you want to portray. The right product will give potential customers a good idea of what kind of company you are, from serious and professional to quirky and exciting. If you want to show off your firm's fun side, then branded toys and games can be a great idea.
Little gifts that can keep the kids entertained can be invaluable to parents, so puzzle books, colouring sheets and crayon sets will always be in demand. Plastic square sliding puzzles can be printed with a picture relevant to your business and are great to keep little hands busy. Designing and producing a bespoke jigsaw puzzle is easier than you might think. You could choose a picture associated with your business, use a photo of any interesting office locations and even include your company logo.
One of the simplest yet most effective types of promotional item is the humble ball. Whether you choose small bouncy ones, large inflatable beach ones or simple plastic footballs, they appeal to kids everywhere. Water pistols would make an appealing giveaway during the summer months. Other sporting goods that make effective promotional products include Frisbees, golf balls, mini boomerangs, yo-yos, table tennis sets or even plastic cricket bats. Not only are these items fun, but they are a good way to encourage kids to be active, in turn reinforcing a positive message about your company.
It's not just young ones who enjoy getting their hands on a new game – there's plenty of fun for grown-ups too. The classic stress toy is an executive must-have and can be made into just about any shape imaginable. From different types of fruit to exotic animals or even modes of transport, this little gismo can be incorporated into virtually any marketing strategy. Fun and quirky, these novelty items are often kept on recipients' desks, making them a good way to keep your company at the forefront of their mind. For a more practical gift, what about a branded key ring? Useful little gadgets are rarely thrown away so these represent a great marketing opportunity.
Ensure your company really stands out by commissioning some unusual promotional items. Games or toys appeal to potential customers of all generations, so let your firm show off its quirky qualities and make a lasting impression.
