You would think that promotional products lead very simple lives. They’re manufactured, they wait around to be imprinted with your logo, and then they are transferred into your clients’ hands to bring you endless brand impressions and new business. And that’s it, right?
In true Toy Story fashion, your promotional items are constantly trying to better themselves when you’re not looking. They are not content to be just a pen, or just a tote bag. They want to be the entire package: a two-in-one product that will enchant your customers.
I discovered this last week when on the search for my white out. I had forgotten that I had left a pen and highlighter unsupervised in one of my drawers. But when I opened the drawer and saw a new pen/highlighter combo tucked into a corner while the original pen and highlighter stared at me blankly, it was then that I learned that things happen behind closed drawers.
After searching through my office, I discovered many new and exotic hybrids that I just had to share with you here. And with two functions in one, they’ll definitely extend the reach of your marketing dollars and promotional efforts.
These ice scraper hand mittens are even better than the conventional ice scraper. They’ll make great items for any brand in the automotive industry, or any business located in areas with harsh winters.
I moseyed into the kitchen and opened one of the many cabinets when I spied a pizza cutter and pie server resting a little too close for my liking. As I pulled out the drawer more, I discovered their child, the Slice and Serve Pizza Cutter, and that I wanted pizza real bad.
Any pizza lover will be tickled pink with this cutter and server combo. Not only will it cut down on time from switching from cutter to server, but it also reduces the amount of dishes to clean. These would be a huge hit at community fairs and grand openings.
Our media team has boxes upon boxes of stress balls in their office, so naturally that was the next place for me to look. Lying within the stress balls was a single yo-yo. I shook my head, dug deeper, and stumbled upon a fleet of stress ball yo-yos.
But the madness doesn’t stop there. We have hundreds of two-in-one items (some with even three or four-in-one) available. As we discover them, we’ll keep putting them up on our site for you to see if you’ve found a promotional match made in heaven.
And if you’ll excuse me, I just saw a clock and pencil cup sneak around the corner…
Have you ever received or purchased a two-in-one item? Did you like it? What’s the most bizarre two or more-in-one item you’ve ever seen?
