31 Inventive Promotional Gifts

From Paint Swatch Sweets to Branded Bacon Boxes

— February 26, 2015 — Marketing
When it comes to keeping a business top of mind, sending the occasional round of promotional gifts certainly doesn't hurt. These client gift ideas promise to be more exciting than the average company mug or pen, with enough variety to suit everyone.

Since you can't often go wrong with food, some of these clever examples deliver a personal brand message with specialty candy, cookies or drinks wrapped in meaningful packaging.

When it comes to a gift, presentation is really what helps to set an average present apart from an extraordinary one. Some great examples of this include sugar tablets presented as pick-me-up medications or knit mittens branded as "Anti-Tech" hand warmers, simply because there's no technology involved in them—combining humor with personal touches and treats is always a winning combination.
