Help Your clients and Your Employees Improve Their Health

Whether it’s a company gift to employees, or a promotional product that takes advantage of the exercise and fitness boom we’re seeing today, fruit infuser water bottles are a giveaway that’s are a hit with pretty much everyone.  From office workers, to sales people on the road, to licensed professionals, everyone is carrying their water with them. These infuser bottles allow them to take their water, and add a healthy boost of vitamins and flavor by adding fresh fruit or vegetables. Some common combinations include:

At a recent tradeshow, the booth with the water infusers was the booth with the waiting line before the event even opened! Postcards featuring the bottles were sent ahead of time, a great example of taking advantage of a trend, and guaranteeing people will stop by your booth.

You may think, “a water bottle’s a water bottle”, but with something as unique as this, people consider it their “go-to” bottle. Our Pure Flavour 2 Go product withstands sub-zero temps, so it’s a great solution for people during the summer. Fill the bottle and freeze for a chilly way to stay hydrated and refreshed throughout the day. The bottle also withstands boiling temperatures, so works as a tea infuser, too. Drop an herbal or green tea bag into the infuser with the fruit, then pour hot water into the bottle to get flavorful hot tea, or chill for a great iced fruit tea treat.

Brand the Workplace, Spread the Word!

Office branding is a trend today. It gets tricky though because employees hear it as a loss of their “personal space” and individuality. Introduced correctly, your employees will understand, and anyone visiting your space will come away with a solid feel for your brand; who you are, what you do, and how you do it.

Why Brand?

Collections and Hobbies Aren’t Appropriate for the Office

The average company allows employees to display family photos, souvenirs, and their choice of desk and office supplies. Usually these are obtained from favorite local businesses, or promotional items they’ve picked up at a trade show. These items are fun, but they show someone else’s brand. Meaning, you missed an opportunity to tell your customer who you are and how your company does business. It’s also distracting when collections and tchotchkes take over an office; a CFO’s penchant for collecting golf balls, a department head whose a major Tampa Rays fan, or even a receptionist with an amazing collection of cat figurines. That may be all someone really remembers after visiting that employee’s work space. The opportunity to promote your brand got lost among the other messages they saw. Personalizing a workspace gives an employee a sense of belonging and appreciation, but it can get out of hand very quickly.

Get a Cohesive, Professional Look with Branded Promotional Office Supplies

Corporate Gifts That Keep On Giving

Rules around giving corporate holiday gifts vary from company to company. If your Board or Senior Management team receive a holiday gift, why not give one they’ll use all year long, and look forward to receiving again in the coming year!

Recognizing the Tech Lover

These days almost everyone carries a mobile device (only one?)! Many carry two phones, a tablet and more. It gets crazy traveling from meeting to meeting, with phones, pens, notes, and thumb drives. Why not consider a tech-friendly padfolio for your management team? With ours, there’s room for two mobile devices, and yes paper for those who like to take notes the old-fashioned way. No last minute hunting on a busy desk for a phone or the latest revision of a presentation. With your choice of colors and a solar calculator included, this promotional product could become THE holiday gift this year.

A Touch of Class for the Office

There’s a growing trend to “brand the work space” in today’s offices. Trying to declutter a desktop, keep everyone’s office representative of your brand, and add a touch of class can be easier when note pads and business card holders are consistent. Avoid the traditional heavier wood and brass, and opt for a cut glass desk set. These unique promotional products add a sparkle and feeling of elegance to any workspace, from modern to traditional.

Sometimes Traditional Is the Perfect Option

If your company has a monetary limit on corporate gifts, consider giving the traditional “with a boost”! A tower of treats for everyone to share. This usually addresses the issue of monetary value tied to a gift, and allows you to not only recognize senior management, but their entire team, who no doubt provided support throughout the year. This type of gift is something that brings a team together and lets them know that you appreciate the work they do.
