Christmas merchandise ideas
The winter season is fast approaching, and while customers might think Christmas is a long way off, brands should be planning for the best promotional Christmas merchandise to offer as party gifts, giveaways or thank-you’s. We’ve put together a selection of winter and Christmas themed merchandise to inspire the warm fuzzy feeling that winter brings, and one that will suit every budget. For a little inspiration, check out the range above, and we’ve highlighted our favourites below.
The classic party trope is back, and you can brand cheap Christmas Santa hats with your logo for a bit of extra sparkle. It’ll help to keep track of your crowd on the dancefloor, and ensure that your work uniform includes the essential printed Christmas element. Why not team up and do a secret santa present giving day for your team and other offices?
To add an extra sense of fun, try the Christmas hat with star lights – which comes with LED lights integrated into the headband.
Branded Tree decorations and baubles
No Christmas is complete without a tree decked in tinsel, presents and the most glitzy element – baubles! Our range includes baubles packaged in beautiful individual carton boxes which can be branded with your logo – keeping your brand top of mind at the cosiest time of the year.
Other tree decorations include felt hanging ornaments, colour changing star shaped lights and a star shaped hanger. Each of these items can be screen or pad printed with your logo.
Printed Stocking fillers
With baubles on the tree, the only thing left in the room to fill are your printed stockings! Stuff nick-knacks and small chocolates into your Christmas boot and leave them on the side of the fireplace for children and adults alike. Everyone enjoys the small treats you’ll carry in stocking fillers – add other items of merchandise, like Christmas themed ball pens, bookmarks or ornaments.
Drinkware and travel mugs
What’s better on a cold winter evening than snuggling up with a warm drink? Keep yours piping hot when out on the move with our winter themed selection of promotional mugs and travel mugs. These mugs can be branded with your logo or artwork in a variety of colours, and customers love a Christmas gift that can be used time and time again in coffee shops. The UK government and businesses have highlighted a recent move away from single use coffee cups. This winter your customers and employees will be safe in the knowledge that they’re helping to beat waste and save the environment with printed ceramic and double wall travel mugs.
If travel mugs aren’t your thing, then there’s a range of other merchandise, including tea pots with cute jersey covers, embroidered with a snowflake design, and hot water bottles for those cold winter nights. Why not treat your employees to a teacup set in a gift box, including a snazzy metal tea leaf holder?
Homeware items come into their own in the winter months, and so we’re never slacking in that department. Ensure that your customer’s houses are complete with a warm glow from the star themed tea light holders, or a glass candle holder. For an eco friendly twist, there’s a tree shaped candle holder available from only £1.38 too!
Christmas gift bags
When you're organising giveaways or thank you presents at Christmas, go the whole hog and ensure they look the part with our cute Christmas themed gift bags. Add in treats from our printed goody bag range and you'll be set to go in no time. Our bags are made from paper and can be printed in multiple positions including the gift tag, or bought plain stock to hold gift items for clients and associates.
