Festive Food Fun

What do you think of first when the holiday season rolls around? Unless you’ve been holed up in a cave every November and December for the past 20 years, one of your first thoughts should be to make a bee line to the fridge, pantry, bakery, or wherever else you get your holiday foodie fix.

After all, why do you think New Year’s resolutions were invented? From the first slice of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, my stomach flips into holiday vacation mode with a five-week forwarding message going straight to my gut. It might not be the healthiest holiday tradition around, but it sure beats caroling or ice-skating (both of which I consider “scientifically proven” to be more hazardous to your health).

At SnugZ, we honor this holiday tradition and in the true spirit of the season, we’ve got everything you need to suffice the festive food fixation of you, your clients, or your business.

A colorful assortment of chocolate-covered goodies including Bridge Mix, pretzels, and candy will bring some holiday cheer to even the biggest Scrooge. Don’t forget our Delightful jellies and gummies either!

Baked goods are another holiday staple. With Tempting brownies and cookies like snickerdoodles (how could you not love something named “snickerdoodle”), you’ll be the hit of your promotional event, seasonal tradeshow, or company party.

Wash it all down with a Steamy cup of joe or hot cocoa and you’re guaranteed one merry little tummy.

So come on holidays, you throw the event and we’ll supply the goodies. Our SweetZ products are the best corporate stocking stuffers, thank you mints, and all around holiday treats out there.

Top Promotional Items for Events

When it comes to making an impression, sometimes you get just one shot. Especially when you are competing with dozens of other companies to get the attention of potential customers. Ya gotta make it count. So, where will you get your biggest bang? What will make people happy when they walk away? What will they proudly put around their neck, into their pocket, or smudge over their lips? Here are some great items to get your logo on someone:

1 – Lanyards: The newest item in “cool.” Take it from my son in high school, if you can hang it around your neck on a lanyard, you not only won’t lose it, you’ll look sweet! From cotton, cord, denim, and even bamboo, lanyards come in all styles.

2 – Mints: For girls and guys alike, pleasant breath is your friend. We’ve all been the one attacked by someone else’s bad breath, and sometimes just barely lived to tell the tale. Let’s get mints out there and save the world from oral stink!

3 – Lip Balm:  Dry, chapped lips. They not only hurt when you smile, but they seriously hurt your appearance. Lip balm is popular in the hot summer weather as well as the dry winter air. Let’s give soft, supple lips to the masses, not just pouty runway models.

4 – Headbands:  Fashion meets function. Not only do headbands look stylish, they serve a much needed purpose – they keep your hair out of your face! Headbands are especially useful for athletes or anyone who is active. These stretchy elastic bands are comfy to wear and allow you to represent your team or company with certain colors, logos, or names. Good-looking and comfortable to wear; what better way to keep your hair in place and stay stylish?

So, there you have it – the top four promotional items that are the both practical and trendy. Choose the right give-away and be confident that it will be well used and your company will be long-time remembered.

Top 10 Reasons why Lanyards are a Great Idea

I have a confession to make.  It’s not something I’m proud of at all.  When you’re a six-foot three-inch, manly man like me, it isn’t something that’s easy to explain.


You see, I’m addicted to lip balm.

And heaven help the world if I can’t find my lip balm.  It’s always missing, and that gets me cranky.  So, my wife told me I should start wearing a stick of lip balm on a lanyard.  This, of course, got me thinking of what else I would stop losing, if I just kept it on a lanyard, which are available in many convenient and innovative styles at SnugZUSA.com.  So, after much thought, here are the Top 10 Reasons Why Lanyards are a Good Idea:

1. You won’t lose your keys.  If you’ve ever tried to break into your own locked Jeep Cherokee in the grocery store parking lot, using just a wire hanger and a car antenna, because you left your keys in the ignition, you know how embarrassing it can be.  Just keep the keys on a SnugZ lanyard.

2. You can get into exclusive backstage events with a name badge. People in movies always get to meet the band by flashing that coveted name badge (on a lanyard) to the burly, emotionless security guard.  If you start wearing your workplace name badge on a lanyard, you’d probably be able to meet your favorite band too.

3. You won’t lose your jump drive.  Which is good, because that jump drive on a lanyard is where you just downloaded the last three volumes of Twilight that you don’t want anyone to know about.

4. You’ll have even closer access to your cell phone.  Have you seen those nifty little cell phone holders that can hang at the end of the lanyard?  So convenient for tip-of-the-finger texting addicts.

5. You can always carry a referee’s whistle.  I know that I’ve been in many situations where I’ve wished I had a ref’s whistle on the end of a lanyard, so I could call fouls on people who text during movies, clip their nails in public, or use the phrase “a whole nother.”

6. You can always have your fingernail clippers.  Except in public.  Remember, we just discussed this.

7. You can carry a key to an emergency storage locker.  This, of course, would be if you are either a werewolf or the Incredible Hulk.  If you just keep a key on one SnugZ’s stretchy elastic lanyards, it won’t rip away with the rest of your clothes when you transform.  And this way, you’d always have somewhere private to have an extra set of clothes stored.

8. You can more prominently and conveniently display your scarlet letter.  Just in case your society has deemed you a sinful outcast, a lanyard would make public shaming easier.  And if you had one of SnugZ’s non-flip lanyards, your general wickedness would always be easy to see.

9. You can always carry an emergency stick of beef jerky.  And, if you always have meat on your lanyard, you’ll be less tempted to go crazy after transforming into that werewolf, unless it was the werewolf from True Blood, and if that’s the case, transform away.

10. You can always carry an emergency pen.  You know, for writing down truly inspirational ideas, like a list of ten uses for a lanyard.
