We all took some time out of our busy schedules this holiday season to give back to the community. We took team pictures for our website and SnugZ provided us all with a jacket and lunch from one of our favorite local places, The Soup Kitchen.
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.
Who has time to host a bake sale nowadays? Here are some great logoed fundraising ideas for all groups that go beyond hosting bake sales and car washes. Use these simple ideas as a thank you to donors or to boost your funds in addition to selling candy bars and cookie dough door to door:
Sports – Hit the attendees of football, baseball, hockey and soccer games with eye black. All our favorite players wear it, so sell sticks for the fans to wear as well! This isn’t just for the guys either, girls love it too! Speaking of girls – we do have something just for them – headbands. Grab a bunch of these printed with their team’s logo to sell at softball, soccer, and tennis matches. Great for cheer programs too! These smaller price point items sell easily at games and events.
Non-Profit – 5K’s, walks and relays have become the go-to for raising funds and awareness to a cause. Water Bottle Holders and Sunscreen are two easy products to sell before and during outdoor events. These products can both be used after the event and the supporter will see your logo for the life of the product giving long time exposure to your cause.
Schools – From our A, B, C’s to fractions and sleeping without getting caught, school has taught us a lot. Candy in customized color combinations are a great way to promote school spirit by offering treats to match school colors. All selections are made in the USA. From Elementary to College and every stop in between, candy appeals to all age groups and events.
Animal Shelters – Let’s not forget about man’s best friend. Support the adoption of dogs and cats with the sale of leashes and collars at local walks and mobile adoption sites. Great donations for State parks and trail heads as well.
There is a lot more to successfully pulling off an event than just grabbing a few volunteers. Find a forum or group where others share the successes of their fundraisers. Be creative and have fun!
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.
