Promotional Products Gift Guide for the Holidays

Promotional Products Gift Guide for the Holidays

It's the time of year when promotional products companies get flooded with holiday gift orders from businesses. Companies often want gifts for employees, valued clients, and corporate holiday parties.

What most of my clients don't know is that there are categories of holiday gifts that are meant for certain uses. For example, promotional products in a corporate holiday party gift bag aren't necessarily the products that'd be appropriate for employee appreciation gifts. I have a method of choosing the right holiday promotional products for specific uses.

The three categories for selecting holiday promotional products are: 1.) Holiday Gifts, 2.) Holiday Party Gifts, and 3.) Edible Gifts.

Use the following promotional products gift guide for direction in picking appropriate gifts for the holidays!

Holiday Gifts

Uses: Employee Gifts, Client Gifts

This title may sound a little vague, but keeping this category general is my goal! This category includes a wide selection of different holiday gifts from a Hot Cocoa and S'mores set to a pair of touchscreen gloves! As you can see, the prices in this category vary as much as the gifts themselves. The point is, this category is for high-quality gifts that have value, unlike an inexpensive Santa pen you'd hand out in a party gift bag. Get inspired by some of my suggestions below.

1. Promotional Bluetooth Wireless Speaker


Music is a huge part of the holiday season for many people. Capitalize on the holiday music craze with a promotional bluetooth wireless speaker. This bluetooth speaker measures just over 4-inches long and boasts 6-hours of playtime from the 5-watt driver. Using bluetooth technology, the speaker can be paired to phones or tablets, plus it features a built-in microphone/speaker phone. Pick from a wide range of imprint colors to outfit this item with your logo. Employees and clients will certainly appreciate this high-quality gift for the holidays.

2. Custom Fleece Blanket

3. Tuscany Journals & Coffee Cups Gift Set

Tuscany Journals & Coffee Cups Gift Set

Drinkware products and journals are popular promo items year round, and especially during the holiday season! This gift set combines classic drinkware items with journals to make for the perfect holiday gift combination. The Tuscany Journals & Coffee Cups Gift set includes one regular sized journal, one mini journal, two coffee cups, two hot chocolate mixtures in a spoon, and a folding bin to hold everything in one place. Give your employees and clients two long-lasting gifts with the convenience of one gift set.
