Top 10 Customer Favorite Promotional Products of January 2013

It’s a new year, and that means our top 10 lists of promotional items will be starting over.

We know, it’s hard to believe that an entire year has flown by already. There’s no shortage of bestselling products, though, so let’s get to it.

Enjoy, my friends!

1 - Heart Stress Reliever - jan13

2 - Cinch-Up Drawstring Backpack - jan13

3 - Eco-Friendly Nonwoven Tote Bags - SM - jan13

4 - Cougar Pens - jan13

5 - Alpine Aluminum Water Bottles - jan13

6 - Custom Pencils - jan13

7 - Essential Fitness Bag and Bottle - jan13

8 - Rubberized Sunglasses - jan13

9 - Atlas Nonwoven Grocery Tote - jan13

10 - Custom Frisbees - jan13

If the Heart Stress Reliever (#1) is near the top of the list, then it’s probably safe to assume that February and Valentine’s Day are right around the corner. This squeezie launched directly to the top after a long hiatus. Next up, we’ve got the Cinch-Up Backpack (#2), the Small Nonwoven Tote Bag (#3), and the Aluminum Trek Bottle (#5) in the top spots. And how about that Cougar Pen (#4), huh? It went from being a relatively unknown pen to one of the most favored pens on our site in under a year! Impressive.

In the bottom five of January, we’ve got the Buy Write Pencil (#6), Rubberized Sunglasses (#8), and the Atlas Nonwoven Grocery Tote (#9) — these items have been longtime bestsellers on our site. We were happy to see the Custom Frisbees (#10) make the list again, and even more excited to see the Essential Fitness Bag with Bottle (#7) crack into the list for the first time!

Top 10 Promotional Product Trends of January 2013

Trend - Artisan Lip Balm - jan13

Trend - Basketball Stress Reliever - jan13

Trend - Business Card Ice Scraper - jan13

We’ve seen the Artisan Lip Balm and the Basketball Stress Balls pop up as trendy items in the past, but the Business Card Ice Scraper is a total noob. Your customers will surely enjoy any (or all) of them in coming cold months! If not, then I guess you’ll just have to look forward to next month’s list to see if there’s anything else you like better.

But we doubt it — these products are pretty great.

That’s all I’ve got for January 2013’s favorite promo items, so I hope you’ve enjoyed yourself. I’ll see you again next month when I prepare February’s list — be good until I get back!

Which of these products would be best for your 2013 giveaways? Any products you’re dying to see make the cut? Any you wish would go away forever? Let us know in the comments section below.

Bubba is the Quality Logo Products mascot. He may have started out as "just a stress ball," but he's come a long way since the company's launch in 2003. Bubba has been immortalized in numerous vector artwork designs for internal and external promotions, and you can see him change outfits on the Quality Logo Products homepage whenever a holiday rolls around. Oh, and he thinks pants are for the birds. You can connect with Bubba on

    I could go for some lip balm right now… I bet it tastes better with my logo on it! 🙂

      Everything tastes better with a logo on it, Bret! 😀

  2. Wash

    Bubba, you’re looking quite spiffy in your coat, dress shirt, and tie. You forgot your pants again, though.

      Actually, Wash, I’m wearing yellow leggings in that picture. They’re just quite tight and the exact same color as my skin, so that must be why you’re unable to see them!

      Thanks for the compliments about my upper half, though. You’re a peach.
