Fresh Personalized Promotional Products For Fall
Article by Abbie Stutzer
When autumn blows in, adults don’t have to worry about going back to school. This does not mean, however, that they don’t learn new things at the start of a fresh business year. Business meetings, seminars and workshops that teach employees and bosses alike about new policies and business models will begin as September approaches. These events are supposed to be attended, but employees occasionally decide not to attend them. Giving an incentive to go to these events can make attendance higher and possibly, make employees happier. Fall brings many new opportunities for businesses to reconnect with their customers and employees. Articulate that you care about your employees by giving them personalized gifts that will make them feel like they are wanted and belong at your company or institution.
As the cooler months begin approaching, warm beverages are consumed at a high rate. Custom-made coffee samplers can be given to employees at raffles or conferences and they are appreciated by most everyone. With assorted flavors and personalized packaging, the coffee will look as good as it tastes. While your employee is enjoying their warm cup of coffee why not give them a travel mug to take it to a football game. The chilly weather won’t be able to discourage them from going. Finally, why not also provide a stadium cushion to employees who have really gone above and beyond this year. People can use these cool seats for tailgating on game day or for extra seating at the last company picnic of the year. With coffee and a seat, there is no way the employee will forget the comfortable outing you helped them have!
Bosses and executives work hard year round to produce and maintain company profits. Show them appreciation by giving them nice corporate watches, casual watches or sport watches. These watches will guarantee that they will never be late to another meeting or golf date. Speaking of golf dates, another idea that the bosses will surely love is golf ball markers or divot tools. These items are things that will have the boss remembering your appreciation while both on and off the clock.
The last great thing that would be a good idea to present to any person at your business or institution would be a desk calendar. Although electronic calendars are available, they are at times unreliable. Systems can crash and important dates can be lost. In the article “The Master Plan” by Cynthia Graham in Promotional Marketing, Jeff Taplin of PlannerStores said “Calendars and planners are far more portable and reliable than their electronic counterparts. People are either reverting back to paper planners or using them in conjunction with their electronic organizers.”
These fall promotions will help all employees and bosses stay dedicated to their work while reminding them they are appreciated.
