7 Ideas for Warming Up Your Winter Promo
Alright everyone, winter is finally here. We’re cold, chapped and now we have been forced to finally accept it. You see, the Earth’s 23.5° axial tilt with respect to its orbit essentially means we’re seeing the sun a whole lot less and wearing sweatpants a whole lot more. But just because we’re coming to terms with staying in to binge watch Degrassi High re-runs doesn’t mean that promotional marketing for your business has to also go into hibernation. There are lots of awesome products that are terrific all year round, but are especially perfect for winter. Here’s a list of the 7 ideas for warming up your winter promo that can help set your brand apart, keep you warm and maybe even help to crack a smile or two. So ignore all of the reports on the inevitability of Season Affective Disorder and get excited because this winter, Shoplet has you covered ;).
Classics are classics for a reason. And the coffee mug is a year-round favorite. But let’s winterize it a bit. That’s right. It’s time to finally get a decent travel mug. It’s vacuum insulated to keep that coffee, tea, or chocolate hot. Boasts an ergonomic handle for that icy-cold death grip of yours. This is a product that everyone loves and uses, guaranteed. It’s a no-brainer if you want to put your brand out there.
We can’t get enough of these in winter. We mean it. It’s perfect for the office that is inexplicably cold all year round, great for the car in case of emergencies, and probably best suited for home, thrown over a couch or as a backup blanket on those drafty winter nights.
Just think about how often you lose gloves. In fact, you probably don’t have a single pair left because you lost them all last week. Now, imagine being handed a nice thick pair of branded fleece gloves at an event. See! Aren’t you happy now with your WARM HANDS?? Done.
If we could give you one word of advice for surviving winter, it’d have to be layers. The runner-up word would of course be cozy. Thankfully a good sweater functions as both! Sweaters aren’t just for lounging around the house anymore, folks. Feel free to pull them over your business or evening attire. The extra large sweater can even function as a robe or pajamas. These are all things you need to be thinking about when you’re purchasing promotional apparel, but trust us, if it’s cozy it’ll be put to use.
So you have your promo gloves and you’re ready to go, but every once in awhile gloves alone won’t do the trick. You those days when it’s -10º with a windchill, and you have your hands jammed in your pockets but it doesn’t matter because they’re freezing? Hand warmers are the perfect promo gear for those exact moments. Hand warmers are so small that you can tuck them into that extra coat pocket that you never use or just leave them at the bottom of your purse. They are also easy to use, most of them just require you to crush or shake them to begin warming them up. Heat can last for 20 minutes or more. You can even put them in your shoes (trust us, we’ve done it) and warm up your toes as a last resort. Hand warmers can literally save the day, and having your brand attached to something that useful and appreciated is a great idea.
FOR THE REST OF YOU WHO DON’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS WEATHER. (You know who you are South Florida and California.) Just take your golf balls and go. Take ‘em. Happy winter to you too…..
