4 BBQ Promotional Items for Summer Parties and Company Picnics

A little under six months ago, Chicago was hit with a blizzard that left many people wishing for sun, heat, and an outdoor barbeque. Well, flash forward to this week, where we’re experiencing a nationwide heat wave that has left some people scrambling for the air-conditioning button. Well, Quality Logo Products has all of you die-hard, outdoor enthusiasts covered! Your BBQ party may be on the small scale for just you and your buddies, or it could be a company-wide event. Either way, we have some great barbecue-related products to make your next event a success!

8 Piece Portable Barbeque SetFor those grill fanatics among your friends or colleagues, you cannot go wrong with having the 8 Piece Portable Barbeque Set as a prize. No matter what game they’re playing, they’ll want to win this beautiful set. It has everything they need to be a true grill champion: a spatula, fork, tongs, basting brush, and 4 skewers complete this attractive grill set. With your company’s name on it, you’ll still be remembered even ten years from now when they pull it out to use it! Not many promotional products have that long of a life span.

22 Ounce Stadium CupsWith temperatures surging way past the level of comfortable, the best thing you can provide to relieve people’s discomfort is an ice cold glass of water. Our Stadium Cups hold 22 ounces of their favorite (and desired) cold beverage of choice. You can imprint the event’s name and date onto them for a truly custom look that doubles as a free souvenir to remember the day!

Party PlateYou’ve grilled amazing food like burgers, brats, or corn on the cob, but do you really think an everyday paper plate can hold all of it? Try again. Our Party Plates can withstand that food and still come back for seconds! No matter if they’re drinking a chilled glass of wine or a can of pop, there’s room for it all. The heavy-duty plastic will keep your burger where it belongs, instead of falling off into the grass.

Ladder Toss GameYou’ve got prizes, cups and plates all taken care of…now for the entertainment! Your guests can only sit and talk for so long before they’ll start looking at their watches for an opportune time to leave. When you break out a personalized summer game like the Ladder Toss, you’ll have both the young and young at heart racing for a turn to play. Order a couple of these and set them up in a cool, shady area and you’ll keep guests comfortable and having fun! An all-in-one game set would provide hours of activity as well. Plus, if it’s really hot and steamy out then you can always use these as an impromptu prize to those who did not pass out from heat exhaustion!

This summer may be hotter than any of us can remember, but just think: in six months it’ll be January again and we’ll be slipping on ice instead of putting it in our drinks. We’ll be searching for extra blankets to put on our beds instead of taking them to watch fireworks or an outdoor music festival. So, get out there and enjoy it while you can, and take Quality Logo Products along with! We’ll have the promotional products covered for your outdoor event.

Which outdoor or barbecue-themed giveaways do you enjoy the most? What’s your favorite way to party in the summer?

    Ladder toss is tough. Ladder toss is dangerous (when you have been drinking too much.) I don’t suggest playing this game with Bret dog. Something tells me that the poor goose would end up losing.

    BTW: ya can’t forget:

    Real men don’t cut the steak to see how its cooked- we cheat and use a thermometer!

    • amy

      Haha, thanks for the insight into how “real men” grill 😉 That’s good knowledge to have on hand!

  2. Bret Bonnet

    One thing that is missing from this list is the propane! 🙂

    Isn’t there a propane stress ball?

    I’ll take SEVEN! 🙂

    • amy

      We truly have a stress ball for everything!!

    Great post and product selection Amy! I love summer barbeques and parties!

    “This summer may be hotter than any of us can remember, but just think: in six months it’ll be January again and we’ll be slipping on ice instead of putting it in our drinks.” Genius line here Amy. I don’t want to think about winter yet, even though a break from this heat would be nice!

    • amy

      Thanks Amanda 🙂

      I totally agree about the weather! I don’t need sub-zero wind chills anytime soon, just maybe not 115 degree heat index and 70% humidity 😛 C’mon 75 degrees, sun and low humidity 😀

    Great picks, Amy! Now that it’s smokin’ hot outside, my dad has been grilling pretty much every night. I know he would love that Portable BBQ set. We used to have one of those Ladder Toss games, it was really fun. Plus, it’s easy enough that my grandma could play! (That was hilarious in itself.) 😀

    • amy

      Thanks Jenna! My dad is also enjoying the grilling season upon us. If you name a food, I bet he’s tried to grill it (both successfully and unsuccessfully). Any meal I don’t have to cook though, is always a good one in my book hahaha

  5. Jen

    Great blog Amy! I really like the customizable stadium cups. I have a big family reunion every summer and I think these would make great prizes for the games we play. Thanks for the idea!

    • Amanda

      Stadium cups are perfect for stuff like that! They’re colorful and won’t break if dropped on the ground.

    • amy

      No problem Jen 🙂 Happy to help!

  6. Kyle

    That ladder toss would be great practice for brushing up on my bags skills. Hmmm…

    • Amanda

      That’s what I’m thinking too……I could use a little practice before next week. =)

      • amy

        Good thinking!! I can use all the practice I can get hahaha

  7. Rachel

    I didn’t realize QLP carried so many BBQ-themed products! Even ladder golf, nice. Thanks for the heads up on all of these!

    • amy

      I was really surprised too actually that we have outdoor games. The all-in-one game set is great for families who have enough stuff to carry to a picnic. Viola! Everything you need for some hours of outdoor entertainment all in one easy to carry place 🙂

  8. Joseph Giorgi

    High-quality plates are always great to have at an outdoor event — especially at a BBQ. I usually help myself to LARGE portions of whatever is being served, and I like knowing that my food is secure on my plate. That peace of mind is invaluable to me!

    And nice suggestion with the Ladder Toss. I’ve never played, but it looks like fun!

    Great list here, Amy! 🙂
