You should always be armed with a creative product to combat difficult days and afternoons. That doesn’t mean you should fiddle with it all day long, but taking a two-minute break will probably perk up your senses in no time. No matter what the occasion, these promo items are sure to please employees or clients.
Be warned…these aren’t your grandmother’s desktop items!
I don’t know about anyone else, but in these cold winter times I have discovered a new love — and her name is hot chocolate. My only problem is I still haven’t found the correct formula for making it, and by that I mean the best way to make it without a giant mess. I put the water in, then the powder, then stir, followed by many paper towels cleaning up the half hot chocolate mess on my desk. Until I discovered the Self-Stirring Mug, that is!
It doesn’t matter if it’s hot chocolate, coffee, or tea, because this mug can accommodate any mixed drink. You just insert all the ingredients, press the “stir” button, and presto! In just a minute or two, you can have your perfectly mixed beverage with no fuss, no mess, and no mess! Who can resist that? Print your logo on the side and the recipient will be sure to think of you in high praises when they have their morning coffee!
Do you ever find yourself daydreaming about winning the lottery or about being on a warm weather vacation? Well, me too, but that is not happening at the moment. I’ve found the perfect product for you! When you’re looking around your nicely furnished cubicle for something fun to momentarily distract you from office life, why not toss a dart or two?
Not only will the Dart Board Pen Caddy help to keep your desk organized and clean, but it’ll also offer endless fun. You have a choice of the standard dart board design for those who like the classics. It also boasts the decision making dart board for the indecisive type who just never knows what to do. Are you having a hard time deciding whether you should go to lunch or work harder the rest of your shift? Well my friend, this is the dart board for you. The product also comes with magnetic darts to avoid any work place injuries or mishaps. Your company can’t go wrong with this desktop item!
Do you find yourself needing a break from the intense thought your current work day provides? Acrobat Clips are the perfect distraction because they keep the mind chugging along (but not too hard so you don’t get burned out). The puzzle comes with miniature people-shaped clips that can be manipulated into and endless amount of different puzzle designs. Stack them wide, stack them tall, stack them thin, stack them small, as long as you stack them it will be alright! I’m sure your company won’t want to miss out on this thoughtful product and the business it could inspire! Besides you never know when one idea may spark another.
Do you ever find yourself busting out in random laughter from something that happened a week ago? With this entertaining promotional product by your side, you won’t be the only one. The Chatty Crew Pen doubles as a pen and a laughing good time. The pens talk when you push the spring, and the suction cup on the soft feet makes sure it stays in place. With its welcoming demeanor and funny interjections, you’ll beat down that mid-afternoon slump in no time at all.
We all need a break, especially when we’re staring at computer screens all day long. What better way to have something at your fingertips that is both fun and useful for you but also promotes your brand in some of the coolest ways? But please don’t be fooled: we have TONS of products to choose from. This is just a list of some of my all-time favorites.
