Top 10 Most Popular Promotional Products of December 2012

Hey, it’s officially 2013! Do you know what that means? Yep, it means that December 2012’s bestselling promotional items list is ready to be enjoyed.

November 2012’s rankings seemed like only yesterday, but alas, they’ve come and gone just as quickly as the holidays have.

Here are your latest results:

1 - Aluminum Water Bottle - dec

2 - Eco-Friendly Nonwoven Tote Bags - SM - dec

3 - Cinch-Up Drawstring Backpack - dec

4 - Alpine Aluminum Water Bottles - dec

5 - Eco-Friendly Nonwoven Tote Bag (Medium) - dec

6 - Magnetic Kolder Kaddy - dec

7 - Bic Clic Stic Pens - dec

8 - Acrylic Tumbler - dec

9 - Wolverine Pen - dec

10 - Mood Stadium Cup - dec

Oh man, there were some surprises for the last list of 2012. Promo items are pretty competitive, as it turns out!

The Cinch-Up Drawstring Backpack fell 2 spaces from the top spot (#3) and the Medium Nonwoven Tote Bag plummeted 3 spaces from its last position (#5). The Small Eco-Friendly Tote got its stuff together and climbed 1 spot (#2). And as for the rest, well, I’m sure you’ve noticed all of the green “NEW” tags! The top ranking of December went to the Aluminum Water Bottle (#1), which has never appeared on our list before. The Magnetic Kolder Kaddy (#6) also came out of nowhere to grab a spot for the first time, even though it appeared in the Trends section a few months back. Then, we’ve got the Alpine Aluminum Water Bottle (#4), the Bic Clic Stic Pen (#7), the Acrylic Tumbler (#8), the Wolverine Pen (#9), and the Mood Stadium Cup (#10), which all kicked recurring promotional items out of their spaces to make comebacks in a huge way.

Speaking of trendiness and comebacks, here are your trend alerts for December 2012:

Trend - Phone or Tablet Stand

Trend - Stainless Steel Tumbler

Trend - Stylus with Pocket Clip

You may recognize the Stainless Deal Tumbler from our website; it’s been a popular giveaway item for a while now but it’s never quite broken into the total top 10 products list. Well, I’m happy to say that it’s gaining ground and clearing a path for success in 2013! Keep an eye on that one. It’s a sly dog! Also, the trends section could barely handle the pizzazz of 2 of our newest products, the Phone/Tablet Stand and the Stylus with Pocket Clip. These promo items don’t cost very much but they provide a huge value to recipients, and we think that’s why they’ve gotten a boost during these holiday months. Incentives, anyone?

Well, that’s all we’ve got for now. Stay tuned, because we’ll be unveiling the top 10 promotional products of the entire year very soon!

    That magnetic koozie is pretty *COOL*! I can see why it landed a spot on this list. Although I’m wondering if the magnet is strong enough to hold a full can? Seems like an accident waiting to happen. And gotta love those smartphone stands! 🙂

      The magnetic koozie we have at home work great–even with a full can in it. You can stick it right to the side of your truck while grilling. 😉

    This item should definitely crack the list ( in January. With the frigid temperatures coming our way, everyone needs an ice scraper.

      I second this man’s motion. We haven’t even had a significant snowfall here in Chicago, but we sure have had our fair share of mornings where there was enough frost on windshields to necessitate an ice scraper. Car dealers and rental companies, take note: those aren’t things you’ll remember to bring yourself, or likely pull out of the lot with, so it’d be a nice gesture in these winter months.
