Give Me Something to Remember (Outdoor Event Promotions)

Outdoor Fun Events Promotional Gifts to Remember
While entering the municipal parking lot a group of energetic young people approached my car. In hand they had a bunch of goody bags filled with free stuff for my friends and me. “Awesome!” I thought. We were on our way for some fun in the sun and an outdoor concert.

It was a plain white plastic bag with some free samples of candy and juice. That was cool, but the only thing it was lacking was something to remember. I drank the juice, ate the candy and tossed the bag. … Continue Reading

I know…it borders on animal cruelty, but we were only trying to make them fabulous. The Sweatshirt Water Bottle dresses things up in a non-traumatizing way; specifically, with a “hoodie” for your water bottle. It is a BPA-free, biodegradable water bottle covered with a hooded sweatshirt. Plus, there’s a front pocket on it to hold things, such as your tickets to the big college game. … Continue Reading

Eww! Is that Someone’s Dirty Mug? (imprinted mugs)

Dirty Mug & Someone's Cup Imprinted DrinkwarePersonally, I’ve never experienced this, but it must be an issue for some people. Has anyone ever taken your mug or cup right off your desk?

Urban Outfitters carries a “dirty mug”. This imprinted mug only appears to be soiled and lipstick stained. And that glass, it must be someone’s cup. No one will want to drink from your glass or mug again. Actually, you might not want to drink from it either. It could take some getting used to. At least you’ll always know which cup is yours.
