May 2012 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
May is almost here, and soon we’ll be fully entrenched in spring. April’s showers are departing and it’s about time to enjoy all of May’s beautiful flowers. And as more plants start to bloom, so do the opportunities for you to throw a successful promotion!
Why not celebrate the season by having a general spring promotion on May Day or during Wildflower Week? From highlighters to stress balls, there are plenty of flower-themed products to cheer up even the drabbest offices.
Let’s see what else May has in store for us (click to enlarge):
With Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day, May is definitely a great month for a military or Americana-themed promotion. USA key fobs are inexpensive and easy to transport, and non-woven camo tote bags make an impressive giveaway. Pass out one of these items at a picnic or community event to make a memorable statement.
We’re sure that everyone is kind to animals all year long. But kick up the love during Be Kind to Animals week. Pet owners are some of the most zealous customers, so showing a little love to Fido will have his owner showing some love back. Pet accessory bags or waste bag dispensers will be a huge hit this (or any) month!
School will soon be over for the summer, so celebrate National Teacher Day and thank the teachers in your district with a nice end-of-the-school-year gift. Fleece blankets or reusable water bottles will show your appreciation and reinforce school spirit all year long.
And speaking of summer, it’s just about time to start thinking about summertime promotions. It’s only a matter of time before June is upon us and we’re wondering if we should be handing out golf towels or golf balls at our charity golf events, or debating if one can really own enough promotional koozies. (By the way, the answer to that question is no.)
If you’re still looking for an idea for a May promotion, don’t hesitate to reach out to our amiable Quality Logo Products representatives. We’ll make sure that you have an item that’s hand-picked for your brand or event. We’d love to talk to you by phone (866-312-5646), by email (email@example.com), via live chat, or by starting a rousing discussion in the comments below.
