Sizzling Summer Swag for Employees
The Farmers’ Almanac is calling for the summer to be remembered as a hot one with spells of “brutally hot conditions.” That means summer gifts for employees and summer giveaways should be focused on keeping your staff cool, protected, and hydrated. When your employees aren’t working, it sounds like you’ll be able to find them by a pool, at the beach or participating in other outdoor activities to stay cool. That makes summer promotional items like coolers, beach towels and hats a home run.
If you’re planning an event particularly in late July and mid-August, the Almanac anticipates it to be “blistering hot” over Central and Western states. That means stock up on plenty of sunscreen, water bottles, and sunglasses. Here are some top picks for outdoor event summer promos and summer corporate gifts:

With the cold starting to really take hold during the end of November, give your employees and clients personalized fall gifts to keep them warm during tailgating events, apple picking, or while cozied up at home on the couch.
