That’s why we created this post. We’ve outlined some of the hottest technology promotional products on the market right now, the features that make them special, and why your recipients will love them.
Let’s get started!
Top 10 Branded Tech Items on the Market
There’s a lot of different tech items out there. If you’re scratching your head, wondering which direction to go in, we recommend starting with these top 10 trending items. We’ve broken them down into three easy categories.
Custom Headphones & Wireless Speakers
When it comes to tech products, usability is key. That’s what makes custom headphones and Bluetooth speakers such a good investment. With more and more meetings going virtual, headphones are a workplace necessity, while wireless speakers are a fun gift for the home office. Both options offer a variety of different branding options, including a large space for logo imprints that maximize brand awareness. Here are some of our top picks:
1. Outdoor Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
The best type of speaker? One that can be used anywhere. This rough and tough outdoor speaker is waterproof and can be taken on any of your daily adventures - indoor or out. Clip it to your favorite backpack with the included carabineer clip for easy travel. The speaker itself is 3 Watt and has a built-in microphone and music controls. The Bluetooth working range expands up to 10 meters, plus boasts 2 hours of music at max volume on one single charge. Brand your logo design on the speaker with a digital inkjet imprint.
2. Waterproof TWS Earbuds
Earbuds are one of the biggest tech crazes, thanks to Apple’s Airpods. People love how simple it is to pop them in their ears, wear them all day long, and not even notice. But how do you get your brand name out there on something so small? These waterproof TWS earbuds offer a convenient carrying case that doubles as a charging box and can be branded with a bold full-color imprint. Sound quality is exceptional with the ultra stereo speakers, and with advanced Bluetooth technology, plus built-in dual microphones, recipients will love using these for video calls and meetings.
3. MyWorld Headphones
Perhaps your employees or clients work in a noisy place. Or, maybe they are frequent fliers for work. You might consider a premium set of noise-canceling headphones like the MyWorld. They still feature Bluetooth capabilities and have a lightweight and compact design. But put them on, and you’ll enter a completely different world of sound. They offer 27 hours of continuous play and even answer and receive phone calls. We especially love the included full-color imprint that makes these headphones truly a reflection of your brand.
Custom Wireless Chargers & Powerbanks
Our smartphones have become our everything. Consequently, we always need to be powered on wherever we go, leading to the rise in demand for wireless chargers and power banks. You’ll notice more and more devices are what’s called Qi-enabled, which means they can be charged without being plugged in and when in close proximity to a Qi-enabled charger. These types of chargers are becoming more and more popular and can come in the form of round chagrin pads, power banks, and even phone case battery packs. Here are some of our favorite picks:
4. Suction Cup Wireless Charger Power Bank

The attached suction cups gently hold your phone in place for the smoothest possible user experience. Just set it, and forget it. The two-tone charger boasts 5,000 mAh and is compatible with any Qi-enabled device. It also features a Type C input for any devices that aren't wireless charging capable. Brand the power bank with a full-color imprint for maximum brand awareness.

Luckily, when it comes to technology, there are so many cool items you probably have never even heard of. Here are just a few of our favorites:
7. Mini Drone
