Purse-Ready Promotional Products: Giveaways to Save a Lady’s Day

For some girls, purses contain their whole lives. Most of us hate to go anywhere without it and we keep so many necessities and random things in there.

Well, who would have thought that promotional products could potentially make up half the stuff in our purses?

Are you listening, marketers? If you give away away products that a girl can keep in her purse, then you’ll be number one in her book. And men, if  you ever receive a promo product like this, don’t pitch it. Give it to your lady instead! I am sure she will find a use for it.

Here are some of the best purse-ready giveaways to get the ladies on your side:

Metropolitan Travel Wallet

Metropolitan Travel Wallet

A wallet with plenty of pockets: Girls usually carry multiple credit cards and gift cards to their favorite stores, so they certainly need a place to keep them all. Choose a soft leather wallet for premium giveaways (or if you prefer a debossed look for your company’s logo), or go with a more affordable mesh travel wallet if you prefer to keep costs low. Hand out one of these promotional wallets, and the lucky recipients will see your brand name several times a day.

Zippered Coin Pouch

Zippered Coin Pouch

A coin pouch: We all hate hearing loose change rattle at the bottom of our purses, so a compact coin pouch is convenient because it keeps everything in one place. Customers will think of you every time their total comes to something goofy, like $10.02, and they need to grab those two pennies. If you want to add more convenience, then go with a translucent coin pouch instead of the solid color. That saves us an extra step because we can see exactly what’s in there at all times!

Full-Color Checkbook Cover

Full-Color Checkbook Cover

A checkbook cover: Almost everyone has a checkbook these days. I don’t know too many people who write checks every day, but I know plenty of women who carry around their registers to keep track of their checking account balances. Hand out a flashy, full-color checkbook cover like this one and your company will stand out for sure! Simple vinyl covers are always handy, too.

Let’s not forget about all those random things that girls keep in their purses. Guys don’t think they are important, but for some of us, they are things we cannot go a night without!

Compact Hairbrush and Mirror

Compact Hairbrush and Mirror

A comb or a brush: The majority of girls I know keep a small plastic comb in their purses to brush their hair after a long day. Or it could be used for the times we walk into the bathroom and realize our hair looks totally flat and we need to give it a little volume. Combs always come in handy to give it a nice tease! You can be the company to save a girl’s entire hair style, just by handing out a comb or a compact hairbrush with your logo on it. She will sure be grateful, and your brand will be the superhero in disguise. (And for the guys who care a lot about their hair as well, this one could work for you too).

Compact Mirror

Compact Mirror

A mirror: Nothing’s worse than sitting at lunch or dinner while being afraid you’ve got something in your teeth! A little compact mirror is the perfect solution to this problem. Girls won’t always be with their best friends, who will tell them if something unsightly is stuck where it doesn’t belong, so it’s best to have the power to self-check it. Then, your recipients can enjoy the rest of the night without being worried. Hand out one of these because every meal that a girl eats, there is a good chance she will be seeing your logo. (Hint: lighted mirror compacts are even cooler!)

SPF-23 Lip Balm

SPF-23 Lip Balm

A tube of lip balm: Lip gloss is addicting, and for girls like me, it’s tough to go a half hour without applying any. Sometimes I forget to put one in my pocket (which drives me mad), so finding a random promo product at the bottom of my purse seriously saves the day sometimes! Pick a custom lip balm with SPF protection and a scent/flavor and you’ll get bonus points. Or, if you already have your anti-chap stick picked out, look into lip balm holders. All they’ll have to do is slip the tube into the keychain and attach it to their keys, and they’ll have moisturized lips everywhere they go.

Metallic Viper Pen

Metallic Viper Pen

A personalized pen: I cannot imagine any girl not having a pen at all times. It may seem strange and simple, but we use our pens all the time. Whether it’s to write a check, to scribble a quick memo, or to score a phone number, pens count as necessities for girls. Start a beautiful relationship with your female customers and give away reliable pens that won’t fail at the last minute. They come in every color and style imaginable, so there’ll be satisfaction guaranteed.

Want more choices? Luxurious scented lotions, pocket-sized toothbrushes, reusable mint tins, stylish personalized sunglasses, and fold-up nail files are all runners-up to consider as well!

Whichever purse-sized giveaways you choose, girls will definitely be happy to find your promotional products in their purses when they need them most.

Which ones do you like the best? Have you ever gotten a promotional item that saved you some hassle?

    I like the pocket compact mirror, it never fails that when I need one most, I don’t have it. I would love to have one in my purse all the time because I always have my purse with me.

    Great purse promo run down Jaimie. I like that you covered all the basics a lady needs, especially the lip balm!

    • Jaimie Smith

      Thanks Jen!! Yeah the lip balm is definitely a need!! For me anywhere. Literally cannot go anywhere without it!!

  2. Mandy Kilinskis

    I still carry around my checkbook, so a fun checkbook cover would definitely be welcome! It’s a lot more attractive than the plain vinyl it’s wrapped in right now.

    But you can never have too many pens in your purse! I usually end up lending one to my friends or my parents, so I’m constantly on the lookout for a pen to throw in there. In fact, I have a promo pen from my favorite hotel in Galena in my purse right now! And now I want to take a trip there!

    • Jaimie Smith

      Yes, I always have like 3+ pens in my purse. Usually not intentionally, but they just end up in there, but I always find a use for them. When I worked at Menards I went through pens like crazyy! Customers would need to borrow them for writing checks and stuff and then walk away with them.

    The lip balm caddy is pretty neat! I don’t think I’ve seen one of those before. I tend to lose chapstick in the bottom of my purse, so even if it the caddy weren’t connected to a keychain, it would still make the chapstick easier to find. And pens are ALWAYS good to have. :) Great list, Jaimie!

    • Jaimie Smith

      Yeahh! Lip balm caddy is awesome!! I got mine here in one of those bins lol. When I saw it I didn’t know what it was at first, then when I figured it out I got real excitedd!! :)

    A lip balm holder would actually be super convenient for me being that I always seem to lose mine in my huge purse! Great Blog!

    • Jaimie Smith

      Yes, Lip balm holder is seriously awesome! I have it with me everywhere I go!

  5. Amy Swanson

    I never seem to have a nail file on me when I need it! There’s nothing worse than snagging your nail on something and you can’t file it smoothly. Ugh, makes my skin crawl just thinking about it actually, haha! Great suggestions here!! :D

    • Jaimie Smith

      Haha! Yeah Amy that def is not a good feeling, keeping a nail file in your purse is def a good idea then!!
