December 2011 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
For some people, December means lots of happy celebrations and gift giving. For others, it’s a string of stressful parties with their in-laws. Regardless of which side you fall on, the holidays are in full swing. This means that holiday promotions and corporate gifts will probably be your focus.
But there are still a handful of awareness days and weeks this month. With Tolerance Day and Human Rights Week, equality is definitely an important theme. You can celebrate Letter Writing Day and National Write a Business Plan Month by passing out writing utensils. Honor National Made in America Month by purchasing promotional items and corporate gifts made in our home country.
Here’s what else is going on this month (click to enlarge):
I’m sure you’re thinking, “Really? Ice Cream Day?” But we like ice cream, and so do a lot of people, so handing out ice cream products during December will definitely help you stand out at tradeshows.
If you’re unsure about the ice cream, promotional items for winter months will definitely be appreciated this month. Anyone that sees snowfall or cold temperatures during the season could use an ice scraper, embroidered scarf, or coffee mug. We’ve also expanded our selection of ornaments this year, so you can imprint your logo on those and pass them out to both employees and valued customers.
Don’t forget that 2012 is right around the corner! Ring in the new year right with some custom champagne flutes or noise makers.
Did any of the promotional products featured on the calendar strike your fancy? You can find them on our website here: Ice Cream Scoop-it, Small Ice Scraper with Visor Clip, and Star Ornaments.
