Corporate gifts are often based on the time of year they are handed out. During the holiday season gifts tend to be more festive, such as food and wine or some other type of alcoholic beverage. When it is someones birthday, the gifts are more personal. So when summer comes around, it would be a good idea to base your corporate gifts on a summer theme. Mainly these gifts will be used in the outdoors and not during working hours. Summer is a time for fun and if your corporate gifts reflect this, they will certainly be more popular. Here are some great corporate gift ideas perfect for the summer months.
Coolers and Cooler bags – Coolers and cooler bags may just be the ultimate summer time corporate gift. Helping preserve food and keep beverages cold, they come in all various sizes and shapes and can be used for many different kinds of outings; picnics, road trips, Barbeques, and even for those summer corporate outings. Of course, like most gift ideas listed here, coolers can be used all year round, but it is during the summer when they are most needed. That is why they make a perfect summer corporate gift.
Barbeques – Everyone enjoys a nice barbeque during the summer. Whether it is a family gathering, a picnic or a bigger outdoor event, odds are you will come across a barbeque. Barbeque related gifts can be all sorts of things. However, just do not limited the gifts to the standard BBQ set (fork, tongs, spatula). While this is a great gift, try thinking about aprons or a BBQ hat. Providing a unique gift will often make it stand out more and actually get used. If it is within the budget you can even providing the food and drinks for an upcoming event or give away actually Barbeque Grills.
Patio/Outdoor Furniture – While at first this may seem like an unusual gift, patio or outdoor furniture can make a great summer time corporate gift. More time is spent outside during the summer, so things like lawn chairs, garden benches and dining patio sets are often used. These gifts can be more expensive and if that is the case; should not be used as a mass promotional giveaway. But used as a personal gift to an employee or client.
Beach Accessories – Everyone seems to go the beach at some point during the summer. Beach accessories such as beach chairs, beach balls, beach towels, hats, frisbees, water bottles etc, make for nice corporate gifts. Because they are not only useful, but are great for branding your company’s name or information. Gifts that are actually used, provide an excellent way to promote your company or product.
Camping Gear – Camping trips are also a popular traditional summertime event. There are a lot of gift items that can be associated with camping. Such as tents, fishing rods, boats, outdoor stoves, sleeping bags and many others; including items already mentioned.
