August 2014 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
Summer is in full swing and hopefully so are your promotions! If you need a few ideas to keep the good times rolling, or perhaps just want to join the fun, our calendar of August Holidays and Awareness Dates is here to make your planning simple and fun.
Kick off August right with International Beer Day on the 1st. Whether you are a bar, brewery, or just a beer lover, we have everything you’ll need for your beer-themed events. August can get hot, so help your (of age) customers cool off this month with a cold refreshing beer in a mug they can take home and tell their friends about!
Speaking of friends, August 3rd is Friendship Day, which means it’s time to cherish your old friends and also make new friends. A great way to do both is to give out customized gift sets your friends are sure to use. From car tool sets to manicure sets, wine sets to golf sets, your friends will have everything they need to do their favorite hobby and maybe even spend a little more time with you and other friends.
If you don’t give away all of your customized Golf Sets on Friendship Day or ordered extra and have some left over, you can hand them out all month long because August is National Golf Month. Sets aren’t the only great giveaway that will get used on the green though! There are plenty of other golf items you can embroider or imprint that your golfing customers are sure to love.
If your customers aren’t the golfing type, perhaps they would enjoy Book Lovers Day. A must-do for libraries and bookstores, almost anyone can celebrate reading and literacy with book themed giveaways to hand out at their event. Your brand can be turning pages (and turning heads too) with your logo printed on something like the Robo Reader Book Light.
When your customers aren’t outside on the green, or curled up with a good book, we hope they are enjoying the outdoors with man’s best friend so they can happily celebrate National Dog Day with you. Plan a great outdoor dog promotion at your local dog park, or welcome dogs into your office for a day for a custom dog treat. If you can’t host an event where you can see your customers adorable pups in person, give out one of the many dog themed items your owners will also enjoy!
Finish out the month with the best Be Kind to Humankind Week starting on the 25th all the way though the 31st. The best way to promote kindness is to be kind, which means you can give out almost any useful promo item. If you don’t have your heart set on a single item for this important week, we recommend Logo Chocolates. Not only are they unique enough to be remembered for years to come, but they can be printed in full color, and really, who doesn’t love chocolate? You will put a smile on all your customers’ faces with a sweet giveaway like this.
