February 2012 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!

We did it! We’re coming up on the last official month of winter! Yes, we’ll still probably see snow in the Midwest until about mid-March, but that’s not important. What is important that it’s time to think about all the great days and weeks coming up in February 2012!

It seems like there are two huge themes in February: caring and partying. So whether that comes through telling your clients thank you this Valentine’s Day, or tossing around unconventional beads at Mardi Gras, there are plenty of chances for a successful promotion!

Check out what else is going on this month (click to enlarge):

With all of the care, love, or kindness-centric holidays, you can’t go wrong with any heart-shaped promotional products this month. Even if you miss Valentine’s Day or Random Acts of Kindness Day, you can pass them out all month long for American Heart Month.

Let’s be honest: among the Super Bowl, Mardi Gras celebrations, and raging President’s Day parties (I don’t know your life!) there will plenty of drinking going on. So make sure that your brand name is going home after the celebration via cups or koozies. Also, tailgating promos are still a great idea for the big game!

And even though June is still the most popular month for weddings, February is the time to start thinking about your wedding favors. This has to be the reason why it’s National Weddings Month, so save yourself the stress of ordering favors in May and get it out of the way now!

It’s also the last month for a wintertime promotion! Once March hits your clients will be wishing for spring, and an ice scraper might not go over so well.

Any of the products featured on our calendar strike your fancy? You can find them all on our site here: Gentleman Ground Hog Stress Toy, Heart Keytags, and Collapsible Foam Can Cooler (Kan-Tastic).

    Oh snap! Only 24 days left til our raging president’s day party!!

    • Mandy Kilinskis

      I know! Put it on your calendars — this is the party that will go down in infamy.

    Do we really have a raging president’s Day party? 🙂

    • Mandy Kilinskis

      Four score and seven minutes ago our supervisors brought forth on this company, a new party, conceived in this blog post, and dedicated to the proposition that all presidents should be celebrated with confetti.

      • Alex Brodsky

        I refuse to celebrate ALL Presidents with confetti. William Henry Harrison deserves a polite clap, and that’s it!

        He learned his lesson: wear a jacket on Inauguration Day!

        • Mandy Kilinskis

          10 am CST, we will observe a single clap for William Henry Harrison. And then we will not mention him again for the rest of the day. Any and all confetti thrown will not be in his honor.

          Haha….oh, Alex. Too soon.

    I love Random Acts of Kindness Day. I feel like that day, should be every damn day! Pay it Forward!

    • Mandy Kilinskis

      I’m with you, Candice! Ask not what your acquaintances can do for you, ask what you can do for your acquaintances. 🙂

    Yay for random acts of kindness day, I didn’t even know this existed! AMAZING!!!

    I love Valentines Day XOXOXO!!! <3

    And it's a Leap Year!!! Wohooo! 1 Extra Day to enjoy February!!!!!

    Great calendar Mandy!

  5. Eric

    Have to point out the irony of “Random Acts of Kindness” Day being only but a few days after Valentine’s Day. Fellas? You goof V-Day up and need a second chance? Bingo. February just gave ya one. That aside, this really is a random month for holidays…groundhogs, presidents, Mardi Gras. That Mr. Peanut-esque groundhog stress ball does about sum up the randomness!
