5 Picnic Essentials for Summer Promotions and Giveaways
Hot dogs, potato salad, coleslaw, watermelon, burgers, chips…. Now that your mouth is watering, what does this list of food have to do with? Summer picnics!
Whether it’s for the holidays, a company outing, a family reunion, or a graduation party, there are long lists of foods and outdoor activities that can assist in planning your perfect summer picnic. Before you start planning, consider these essential summertime promotional products to help complete your picnic or outdoor party plans.
Ever wish you could be Inspector Gadget? “Go, Go, Extra-Hand Snack & Beverage Tray!” With this perfect summer accessory, your hand basically grows a tray that allows you to juggle your plate of food with your drink. This carrying tray is perfect for company outings when you need a free hand to shake hands with employees or employers without spilling your entire meal on them (and possibly costing you a $600 suit that your CEO decided to wear to a picnic).
Summer and corn-on-the-cob go hand in hand. If you are one of the many who avoids corn-on-the-cob at all costs due to the hassle of forcing a square piece of butter to cover a round piece of corn, then this is the perfect promotional item to have at your picnic! Your guests will applaud you for saving them from the buttery mess that would normally avert them from enjoying a summer food classic.
It’s important to be prepared for any injuries that can occur at a summer picnic. These fit-in-your-pocket bandage dispensers are perfect for family reunions, where little kids may be tripping during intense games of kickball, or for the adults running into the obviously-visible volleyball nets after too many celebratory drinks. If your outdoor event goes without a scratch, then guests are bound to reach for their bandage dispenser at a later date, see your logo, and think of how considerate you are for providing a band-aid in their time of need.
What is the best way to top off your summer picnic? With a cherry and whipped cream, of course! Put together a make-your-own ice cream sundae bar and give your guests their own ice cream scoop to take home customized with your logo. Just make sure your guests get to the ice cream before the heat does (or else they’ll need straws)!
Send your guests home with leftovers in these insulated food coolers. These handy containers have a freezable, gel-filled top to keep food cold on the go. Handing these out to your guests will get all those leftovers off your hands and offer your guests an awesome container to carry around their favorite cold foods for up to five hours. That’s long enough for a competitive game or two of beach volleyball, right?
No Fourth of July party or outdoor gathering is complete without memorable souvenirs to give away! Make your company picnic or summer fundraiser a sizzling success with warm-weather gifts; you’ll have your guests ants-y for the next summer picnic before you know it.
