10 Most Popular Promotional Products of August 2013

What do you mean August is over? Man, I had just gotten used to the idea of summer and July’s top 10, too… Oh well. Another month, another dollar!

Last month’s giveaway items kicked all sorts of tail. To my surprise, there weren’t any dramatic changes but it goes to show you exactly how popular some of these best-sellers really are.

Have a look and notice the stats for each one:

1 - Cinch-Up Drawstring Backpack - aug13

2 - Collapsible Koozie Can Cooler - aug13

3 - Custom Pencils - aug13

4 - Mood Pencils - aug13

5 - Rubberized Sunglasses - aug13

6 - Eco-Friendly Nonwoven Tote Bags - MED - aug13

7 - Bic Clic Stic Pen - aug13

8 - Budget Kooler Bags - aug13

9 - Mood Stadium Cup - aug13

10 - Alpine Aluminum Water Bottles - aug13

Time for a breakdown! Get excited. Looks like the Cinch-Up Drawstring Backpack (#1), the Collapsible Koozie Can Cooler (#2), and Custom Pencils (#3) refused to give up their rightful places in the top 3, so there they stayed. I felt kind of sad for the Alpine Aluminum Water Bottle (#10), Budget Kooler Bag (#8), Bic Clic Stic Pen (#7), and the Medium Eco-Friendly Tote (#6) because they all moved down in the rankings, though. (Hey, I’m sentimental, okay?) Good thing the rest of the products made up for my temporary sadness and climbed a little bit, like the Mood Color Changing Pencil (#4), Rubberized Sunglasses (#5), and the Mood Stadium Cup (#9).

That about covers it for our bestsellers of August! Ready to learn about emerging promo item superstars?

You got it! Here are the trendz!

Trendy promotional products to watch:

Trend - Sip n Go Glass Water Bottle - aug13

Trend - Jewel Collection Beach Towel - aug13

Trend - Rotate 2Tone USB Flash Drive - aug13

First up, we’ve got the Sip n Go Glass Water Bottle, which I’m particularly excited to announce. It’s a water bottle made from glass instead of plastic! Say goodbye to that weird taste for good. You wouldn’t think I’d care much about the taste of water because I’m a stress ball, but I sure do! Next, I’d like to discuss Jewel Collection Beach Towels. Nothing says “have fun on your vacation” like a towel personalized with a special message, right? I mean, I can’t think of anything else. And last but never ever least, I chose Rotate 2-Tone USB Drives to round out the trendsetters list. Whether your clients are students or high-level executives, they won’t be able to resist taking one of these!

That’s what I’ve got for you this time around, super friends! Hopefully I’ll see you next time for a brand new list and set of promotional product trends. (Hey, that rhymed!)

Which product would you like to see in our emerging trends? Were you just as shocked as me to find out that the rankings stayed moderately consistent? Any fall or winter predictions you’d like to add?
