Corporate Gifts Ideas for Events - 5 Unique Giveaways

Corporate Gifts Ideas for Events - 5 Unique Giveaways

Picking creative ideas for corporate gifts is something we get asked for a lot so we decided to create a round-up of some of the ideas that seem more popular than others.

One thing that's worth keeping in mind when selecting giveaways for a trade show or an exhibition is that above all else the product you choose should represent your company well in terms of quality, category and style.

Secondly, the gift should either be practical for your clients to use in everyday life or it should be gimmicky enough to be a great talking point that will be kept just for its fun factor.

Finally, a lot of products can be made into creative giveaways with the artwork and design that you choose to include on it. Even a plain gift can be exciting with a creative tag line or engaging photography.

If you're still stuck for ideas, consider the five product we decided to shortlist below.

1. Fidget Spinner

Fidget Spinner

Fidget spinners are marketed as fighting anxiety but are popular among other children and adults alike

One way of giving people a cool gft is to unilise the latest trends in novelty gifts. Fidgets came into the market by storm, and now, nearly every school kid has at least one. It is a gadget that has a clever spinning mechanism which means that the three prongs spin almost endlessly with the gentlest of puches. It's an addictive litttle thing that will keep your customers excited and eager to demonstrate their spinning skills to others.

We can print the promotional fidget spinner on the circlular area in the middle in up to 2 spot colours. If you have a full colour logo, we recommend having a 3D dome attached in that same place.

If you like a novelty toy idea, other gifts you could consider are syringe pens, virtual reality glasses or selfie sticks.

2. Sunglasses

Promotional Sunglasses

Promotional sunglasses can be worn during and after the event

Another playful item that is popular at summer events are printed sunglasses. Promotional sunglasses are available in many colours and can be printed with your logo on both arms. They are available in a few fashionable styles to complement your brand and provide the perfect background for your logo.

People who receive promotional sunglasses at an event will wear them there and then (especially if it's an outdoor event and the sun is shining). They are also likely to keep them and use them again in the future.

Somewhere between a gadget, a fashion item and a piece of apparell, branded sunglasses are versatile in their appeal and will apply to many marketing situations.

Alternatively, if you're worried about classic British weather messing with your event ambiance, why not opt for plastic ponchos or umbrellas?

3. Hand Sanitiser

Hand and paw high five

A hand sanitiser branded with your logo will mean people can get refreshed on-the-go

As events are, naturally, full of people and a lot of touching, some visitors might be worried about extra dirt and germs. You can be seen as a caring and thoughtful brand if you supply visitors with pocket hand sanitisers. That way, they can wash their hands quickly and with no hassle.

Hand sanitisers can come in several different forms: in pouches, pens, tubes, sticks or card sized containers. They can then be printed with your logo and website address or telephone number.

Hand sanitisers are particularl handy (excuse the pun!) at events involving exibiting merchandise that can leave bits on your skin, e.g. in construction, with food, or with cosmetics. Once products have been tested or sampled, a little pouch, tube or plastic container can provide a much wanted relief.

4. Power Bank

Mobile Phone Charging

There's nothing worse than a mobile phone dying at a day-long event

If you have a little extra cash to spend on a corporate giveaway that will be appreciated and kept for a long time, why not choose a promotional power bank? These gadgets come in plastic or metal cases and can be printed or engraved with your logo, depending on the specific style. They all come supplied with a charging cable and packed in a cardboard box. This means they are easy to give away.

Your visitors will thank you for such a useful gift that will save any phone or tablet from running out of battery life.

Power banks' prices usually depend on how powerful they are - so the cheaper options will take longer to charge a phone and will provide enough energy for one or two charges. More expensive and more powerful varieties can store enough power to supply a phone a number of times and they can even charge two devices at the same time.

5. Foldable Water Bottle

Water Bottle

Event visitors might want to get hydrated so why not be there to satisfy that need?

Products that cater to specific needs of your customers are most appreciated. A long day out means that people will need to stay hydrated. You can offer them a glass of water, or even better, a water bottle that they can take with them and keep refilling!

Our favourite is a foldable water bottle with a carabiner keyrinng. It's reusable and it provides a great print area for your logo. Choose from a number of colours. This bottle could even be used by your visitors for many months to come!
