Top 3 Swag Items Your Team Needs

Who doesn’t love swag? You know, the free stuff you get when you go to an event or items that are sent to you from your favorite brand? Well you can start a swag line for your team, too! This is a great way to give your team things they can use in their everyday life. Not to mention, if you order extras, there will be plenty on hand to share with you customers and clients as a way to show your appreciation for their business! Let’s take a look at three practical items that your team will love. 

Branded Travel mug

Coffee lovers will unite over this product! Whip it out in the office or in the kitchen when you are making that cup of joe when you're starting the workday remotely. You want a thermos that actually works, right? Purchasing a travel mug from brands like Yeti, HydroFlask, Camelbak, and others, will ensure a quality product that is stylish, and easily customizable with your brand name and logo, while also getting the job done! And if you happen to be opposed to the lush and aromatic drink that is coffee, mugs like these can keep any liquid hot or cold so your drink of choice will do nicely! You can never have too many thermoses lying around and they are definitely a functional item your team can use everyday. 

Yoga mat

You don’t have to be a yogi to use a yoga mat and stay active and stretch those muscles. It’s likely that your team is confined to an office desk or their makeshift work-from-home space for hours on end. Sitting for a long period of time can put stress on the neck, spine, and lower back. Investing in a yoga mat to roll out when you have five or ten minutes to get the blood flowing is an effective way to preserve the physical health of your team. You can find a yoga mat just about anywhere, including Walmart, so obtaining an order shouldn’t be challenging, Feel free to customize the mat with your brand name and logo, or choose a design that reflects the “look and feel” of your business, or leave it up to your team to choose! This swag item not only has practical use, but reflects your true intentions of keeping your team healthy throughout their work day.

Face mask

Over the past year, face masks have become part of the daily attire for many. Hundreds of businesses have taken the leap in designing their own branded face masks for their team, as we now know you can never have enough. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we work and play and if we didn’t have enough to remember already, now we have to remember to wear our mask. Face masks are constantly lost or misplaced so it’s only logical for you to add yet another to your team’s collection. You can never have too many to choose from. Do some research and find brands that offer customizable face masks and design one with your brand name and logo. Your team will thank you later.

All in all, having a few items to surprise your team with can make a difference in their overall workplace satisfaction and leave them assured that you care about their wellbeing. It’s nice to be rewarded for your success as well as receive gifts “just because,” and that is what you can offer when you order swag for your team.
