10 Most Popular Promotional Products of January 2015

I know that January’s one of the longer months of the year, but man, it feels like just yesterday that we were going over the bestselling promo products of 2014! Pretty soon, we’ll be checking out the best of 2015. Well, not really. I suppose it makes sense to at least get through January before we talk about the end of the year.

So let’s get to it. Drum roll, please! Here are QLP’s top-selling promotional products of January 2015:

Top 10 Promo Products of January 2015 Cinch-Up Drawstring Backpack Round Stress Reliever Medium Eco-Friendly Non Woven Tote Bag Adhesive Sticky Note Pads Rubberized Sunglasses SmartPocket Cell Phone Card Holder Mood Stadium Cup Promotional Lip Balm Adhesive Sticky Note Pads Bic Clic Stic Pen HTML Map

No surprises in the top three results. The Cinch Up Drawstring Backpack, the Round Stress Reliever, and the Medium Eco-Friendly Non Woven Tote Bag were the number 1, number 2, and number 3 items, respectively, for all of 2014. Looks like they’re just keeping that momentum going!

But the number 4 spot, now that’s where it starts to get interesting. QLP’s 4” x 3” Adhesive Sticky Note Pads, a favorite from the middle of last year, are back on the list. You’ll notice the 3” x 3” Adhesive Sticky Note Pads down on the list, too, at number 9. Has everyone been starting off the year by getting organized? I think the answer’s a big ol’ YES!

Rubberized Sunglasses, another favorite from last year, come in at number 5. They’re followed by a newcomer to the list, the SmartPocket Cell Phone Card Holder, at number 6. People in the promotional products industry have been saying that tech-related items will be big in 2015. This could be the start!

Joining the 3” x 3” Adhesive Sticky Note Pads at the bottom of the list are a few more familiar faces from 2014: the Mood Stadium Cup (number 7), the Promotional Lip Balm (number 8), and the Bic Clic Stic Pen (number 10)

Despite all of the familiarity, there was a bit of a shake-up in the Top Ten this month. Where are the koozies? The pencils? The Brain Stress Reliever that freaks out almost everyone on QLP’s Content team? Maybe they’ll be back in February. Or maybe on next month’s Top Ten, we’ll see some products from…

The QLP Monthly Trend Alert!

No one likes spending the winter all cooped up inside. This month, we’re putting the spotlight on products that will help your customers get up and go: the Double Wine Tote Cooler and Slim-Line Power Bank.

January 2015 Trend Alert Double Wine Tote Cooler Slim-Line Power Bank Quality Logo Products® HTML Map

February brings with it one of the most popular holidays of the year: Valentine’s Day. You don’t totally have to wine and dine your customers, but you can make it easier for them to enjoy a glass of wine with a loved one with the Double Wine Tote Cooler. This neoprene carrying case holds two 750 mL wine bottles, perfect for a weekend getaway. It makes a fine gift for guests checking at an inn or resort.

Holidays or no, tech-related promotional products are a big deal right now, and QLP has plenty of mobile chargers and power banks ready to be imprinted with your logo. The Slim-Line Power Bank caught our eyes because of its slender design—this little beauty fits right into a pocket or a purse and makes it easy for customers to keep their phones charged no matter where they are! It takes only 3-4 hours to fully charge back up once it’s been used, and it even comes with an intelligent IC chip that prevents overcharging and overheating. It’s just what you need for a client gift, or maybe a trade show contest giveaway!
