Happy first day of Autumn! In typical fashion, that means retail stores are putting up Halloween decor and soon there will be holiday decor and talk of snow instead of fall leaves. It can’t be denied that when a new season hits, we’re already thinking months after to the next holiday or season. If you own a business, it is important to keep people thinking about what is coming next, right? So even though this is only the first weekend of a new season, it’s time to start thinking about winter! If you have a trade show coming up or simply want to update your promotional items for your employees, here are the top 10 items that people will actually use throughout these cold months in Pleasantville.
There’s nothing worse than going out to your car in the morning to find that there’s a layer of ice on your windshield and you don’t have a scraper. You dig through the car, the house, your purse, you try to use a credit card, a pair of shoes, your lunch box — and nothing works. Every vehicle in New Jersey should have a reliable ice scraper in their trunk just for these cases.
Even after one night of colder weather, everyone is breaking out their best hot chocolate recipes and purchasing bags of mini marshmallows. What’s better than sitting in the living room beneath a blanket with a hot mug of liquid to soothe your chilly fingertips? Take a sip, sit back, and relax as you watch the cold wind breathe through the trees.
Cold Weather Apparel
Promotional products can sometimes get a bad rap, but when you’re handing out these cold weather items, people will be flocking to your table. Look for gloves, hats, scarves, sweatshirts, or socks and people will be asking for a second item. You also have a variety of styles, materials, and colors to choose from.
Blankets are actually a fairly versatile promotional product. They could be put in the backseat of your car for emergencies, on the back of your office chair for those especially cold Monday mornings, or simply on the back of your couch at home. Wherever it ends up, your customers or employees will appreciate something to cuddle up with during the winter.
With cold and flu season getting worse and longer each winter, it’s never a bad idea to have hand sanitizer on you. Some products even come on a handy keychain, so the next time you’re waiting in line for your holiday eggnog latte and the person in front of you sneezes, you can protect yourself from getting a holiday cold.
No one likes dry, flaky skin. It’s uncomfortable, it looks bad, and who doesn’t like to smell like flowers or coconut and thyme? Whether the bottle is in your purse, on your desk, in your bathroom vanity, or on your keychain, you can always lather up and prevent dry, itchy skin.
It’s been said that women consume four pounds of lipstick in a lifetime. Whether this is true or not (we don’t believe it), some people have a habit of using a lot of lip balm, especially during the colder months. Just like lotion, no one likes dry, flaky lips. Care for a lip balm keychain?
Not enough people keep an umbrella nearby. Whether it’s rain, snow, or just a really sunny day (they do happen sometimes during the winter in Pleasantville), having an umbrella can protect you from all sorts of weather! And again, you can choose from a variety of styles, sizes, and colors.
Promotional products should be useful, otherwise, people won’t use them and then people won’t see or ask about your logo or company. Nearly everyone carries around a thermos during the winter months, giving you a great opportunity to promote your brand and keep people warm and hydrated.
Auto Emergency Kit
This promotional product gives multiple items in one! Some kits include first-aid items, tire pressure gauges, starter cables, a flashlight, disposable ponchos, and more. No one should get stranded on the side of the road in the cold without these basic items.
