Gifts such as pens, USB sticks and T-shirts work well the whole year through. The same is true of powerbanks, mugs, cups and lighters. There are however some advertising products that work better at specific times of the year. We have created our gift calendar to help you find the perfect item for your customers. It gives you a practical overview of when certain promotional items are best used.
GIFTS FOR THE COLD WINTER MONTHS
Winter starts just before Christmas and is both the coldest and darkest time of the year. With temperatures hovering around zero and very little sunshine, us Brits are often to be found snuggled up at home. So it should be no surprise that the winter months also are when the most babies are conceived. Although it does get cold in winter, 7% of Brits still rate it as their favourite season. Hats, scarves and gloves
, as well as ice scrapers and cosy coats are the most in-demand business gifts for braving the icy temperatures.
SPRING PROMOTIONAL ITEMS FOR ANY OCCASION
Spring officially starts no later than the last Sunday in March and brings with it warmer and friendlier days. Although the sun definitely starts poking its head out more often, Spring also brings with it many rainy days. 24% of Brits rate Spring as they favourite time of year and many of us enjoy spending time smartening up the garden (36%) or having a barbecue with friends. Business gifts we can enjoy outdoors are ideal for getting the most out of Spring. A baseball cap to keep the sun off, a water bottle
for when you’re out and about, or a cotton bag are all great options.
BUSINESS GIFTS FOR THE WARM SUMMER MONTHS
If it’s sunshine you’re after, there’s nothing quite like summer. It comes as no surprise then that 44% of Brits rate summer as their favourite season. With average temperatures of around 17 degrees, July and August are our warmest months and this is reflected in our business gifts too. Sunglasses and sun umbrellas are particularly well-loved, but picnic and cool bags
are also great give-away items.
AUTUMN GIFT IDEAS FOR RAINY DAYS
The weather takes a bit of a turn for the worst again in Autumn. With the clocks going back on the last Sunday of October, it’s darker earlier and the cold creeps in. Despite this, 13% of Brits still love this time of year, probably because of the changing colours and beautiful leaves falling from the tress. In fact, annually more than 15w million tonnes of leaves fall, which is roughly 12 Great Pyramids of Giza! October is our rainiest month and so business gifts to suit this always work well, as people still love to get out and about despite the weather. It’s not only umbrellas
, cosy hoodies and waterproof rucksacks that come in handy at this time of year, but also practical Thermos mugs for keeping your drink warm while you’re on the go.
