Halloween Giveaways 101: Inexpensive Promotional Items for Any Industry
Halloween is just around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to order some spooky promotional products for your business! We carry so many promotional items that it’s sometimes a challenge to narrow down your choices, but it’s important to pick just the right one for your company logo. I have compiled a list of great giveaways that are sure to please your trick-or-treaters and also your best customers.
Remember, it’s not Halloween without candy, so put your clients in the festive mood with some custom imprinted treats! Choose from Skittles, Starlight Mints, chocolates, jelly beans, nuts, and more. They’re sure to put a smile on everyone’s face! They are available in bite-sized packets and in larger decorative tins and jars.
Are you anti-candy but pro-Halloween? There are still plenty of goodies you could give away! Have your logo imprinted on super fun mood color-changing pencils and your message will last way longer than it would on an edible product. To keep with the Halloween spirit, order your color-changing pencils in orange, green, or purple and have your message imprinted in black. Watch your customers’ faces light up as the pencil changes color right in front of their eyes! These pencils are a very inexpensive promotional product, so it’s easy to order big quantities for a small price. It’s a cheap way to get your brand into everyone’s hands.
But wait, there’s another great non-candy product to promote your company’s brand in October: stress balls! Quality Logo Products sells a huge variety, so I put together some of my favorites (Halloween-themed, of course).
The creepy crawly spider stress ball, the original Jack-o-lantern stress ball, and the funny-faced pumpkin stress balls (choose from angry face, maniacal face, and smiley face) are always cute trick-or-treater giveaways. For something a bit spookier, you could try the haunting glow-in-the-dark ghost stress ball, the fun light-up skull stress ball, or the terrifying bat stress ball.
Don’t forget about safety! Colorful clip-on strobe lights are excellent gifts because they help keep kids safe while they’re showing off their costumes. Light-up, pumpkin-shaped pendant necklaces have the same effect and they’re adorable to boot! Or, have you thought about being the company that provides excited kids with a place to store their treats? Maybe you should! Brightly-colored tote bags will do the trick to carry all of their goodies, and they don’t cost much to personalize.
It’s tough to expand your brand without the use of advertising in one form or another, and FREE advertising is one of the most rewarding ways to get your name out there. Kids may not be your company’s target demographic, but giving out cool little knick knacks to trick-or-treaters is a sure fire way to circulate your businesses logo nonetheless. Whether you choose the aforementioned stress balls or mood pencils or stick with traditional candy giveaways, children will love your seasonal spirit!
Don’t be afraid to show your creativity during the holidays when it comes to promoting your brand. Have fun with it and you will get great feedback and praise from existing clients and gain the interest of potential clients. Happy branding!
