Here are 5 promotional products that are versatile enough to be used year-round, making them ideal purchases with your year-end budget surplus.
Nearly every industry requires writing instruments, making pens the most versatile promotional product you can buy. Regardless of business type, time of year, or geographic location, people can use a pen. Seen here is the Crazy Stick Pen, one of the most economical pens we carry, meaning that you can stretch your year-end budget dollars even further.
Tote bags are desirable among many industries because everyone can use a bag at one point or another, which is why they are great to spend your year-end budget on. Featured here is one of our most popular models, the Big Thunder Tote, which is made from premium 100 GSM non-woven recyclable polypropylene. With an ultra-large imprint area of 50 square inches, this bag is guaranteed to get your business noticed.
Water bottles are good purchases with year-end budget surpluses because they can be used by both employees and customers. Whether you’re planning an employee wellness program or an appearance at an outdoor event the following year, water bottles such as the 16-ounce Sports Bottle with Push ‘n Pull Top from Huffermen will be appreciated by recipients.
If you want to keep things simple, you can’t go wrong with a coffee mug, such as the classic Budget Mug. Our most popular white ceramic mug, the Budget Mug features a glossy exterior and interior and a large C-handle. This item is great for employee appreciation gifts or to welcome new employees.
Apparel is another ideal year-end budget item because of its broad appeal. You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who would turn down a free t-shirt or hat, such as the pictured Connor Cap. Apparel such as t-shirts and hats also make excellent tradeshow giveaways.
