Top 10 Giveaway Items of May 2013

All of those annoying April showers finally gave way to May flowers, ladies and gentlemen! That’s not the only exciting news here in the Midwest, either, because we’ve got a brand-new bestseller list for May 2013.

You asked, so we delivered. See if your favorite promotional products stayed in the top 10 or crashed and burned last month!

Here it comes:

1 - Cinch-Up Drawstring Backpack - may13

2 - Collapsible Koozie Can Cooler - may13

3 - Rubberized Sunglasses - may13

4 - Mood Pencils - may13

5 - Bic Clic Stic Pen - may13

6 - Custom Frisbees - may13

7 - Eco-Friendly Nonwoven Tote Bags - SM - may13

8 - Budget Kooler Bags - may13

9 - Mood Stadium Cup - may13

10 - Cougar Pens - may13

If you’ve read any of our previous top 10 promo items lists, then you’ve seen an even balance of rising and falling. Well, May showed us a lot of the former and less of the latter! The Cinch Up Drawstring Backpack (#1) and the Collapsible Koozie Can Cooler (#2) switched places. The Small Ec0-Friendly Tote Bag (#7) fell two spots. Other than that, though? Our products fought their way to the top. Rubberized Sunglasses (#3), Mood Color Changing Pencils (#4), Bic Clic Stic Pens (#5), and Budget Kooler Bags (#8) skyrocketed closer to the top spot (and may give the other giveaways a run for their money next time). The Frisbees (#6), Mood Stadium Cups (#9), and Cougar Pens (#10) all popped back into the top 10 after being absent for a month or more, so they had nowhere to go but up!

Sadly, our Contender Pens, Promotional Lip Balms, and Atlas Totes got the boot in the past 30 days. Their eviction notices have been served, but since when do they listen? They might just be back next time.

And now….

Presenting our trending promotional items for May 2013:

Trend - bobble Filtered Water Bottle - may13

Trend - Vino2Go Tumbler - may13

Trend - Clip-It Lip Balm Holder - may13

What does it take to get a slot in the trendy promo item section? Gumption. These 3 products demonstrated that in May, for sure. The bobble Filtered Water Bottle sorts out the good particles from the bad and makes your drinking water better; it’s a big hit for trade shows and outdoor gatherings. Just choose from the vivid accent colors, add your logo, and let the filtering begin! Speaking of filtering, we’ve also featured the Vino2Go Tumbler this month. While a few of us originally doubted its power (you have to admit, it looks kind of funny), it went on to prove us wrong by kicking butt in our new products section. Impressive! And lastly, we have the Clip-It Lip Balm Holder, a giveaway item that’ll serve you well for any public appearance. Hydrated lips are better suited for word-of-mouth, after all…

Aw yeah, trends! That’s one of my favorite parts of these blog posts. I hope you enjoyed my wrap-up, as always.

Come back next month and I’ll have a completely new (well, maybe) round of promotional items for you to gaze upon!
