For many of us, this will be the last working week of 2010 and the final chance to get everything in order before the Christmas break. It's also a good chance to reflect on the year just gone and see what have been the most successful parts of the business over the last 12 months. And for those of us who spend Christmas tucked up in front of the television, it is also a time for those ever popular list shows that give us a look back at the best and worst moments of the year just gone.
So in that spirit, we will take a look back at some of the best promotional gifts of the last year, and gaze into the crystal ball to see what might be successful in 2011.
Promotional Flash Drives
The up and coming stars of the future, promotional flash drives are quickly taking the world by storm. Soon there won't be a home or office in the land without a promotional flash drive by the computer, and these products meet both criteria of stars of 2010 and hot prospects of 2011.
A large, prominent branding area and immense practicality and versatility make the promotional flash drive so appealing, and with prices on large memory chips falling as the technology evolves, the future looks very bright indeed for these incredibly popular promotional gifts.
Trophies and Awards
Promotional gifts don't just have to come in the form of high volume, cheap items that are widely distributed to customers and the public, but can also fulfil a more subtle promotional role. Incentives and motivational tools are always an important way for giving staff direction and encouragement, and bespoke trophies and awards give companies and industries a way of doing this with an on-brand promotional item.
Whether you are a company looking to motivate your team, or putting on an industry awards event, bespoke trophies can be an effective way of rewarding staff whilst getting your brand noticed. If you are hosting an awards event or just looking to acknowledge the stars of your company, bespoke awards are a unique way of saying thank you whilst giving your brand valuable positive visibility.
Eco-friendly Promotional Gifts
If you ever wonder what happens to those bottles and cans you diligently place in the recycling bin every week, one of those places is in our eco-range of promotional gifts. With environmental concerns still very much on the mind of businesses despite the recession, our range of recycled and biodegradable promotional gifts offer a solution to companies who may have to watch their green habits to fulfil the criteria of a contract.
They are still growing in popularity and contain all of the event and promotional items that you would expect for a successful campaign. A hit in 2010 and set to grow in popularity again in 2011.
