Resource Center » 20 of the Weirdest Promotional Products Ever

Choosing an unusual promotional product helps make your company memorable.

Are you tired of customizing the same promotional products as your competitors? Have you decided to stray from your usual order of personalized pens and imprinted water bottles and associate your logo with an unusual product instead? If you’re nodding your head in agreement to either of those questions, then maybe you’re ready to advertise with one of the top 20 weirdest promotional products! Business owners constantly seek fresh and creative ideas that will boost sales, and scores of them purchase weird promotional products to help stimulate customer response. There’s no restrictions regarding how your unusual promo items can be given out—offer them to repeat customers when they visit you, hand them out to new customers at trade shows, or wrap them up and give them away as birthday presents and holiday gifts!

Are you ready to take your promotions a step further? Customize a giveaway item that’s considered "weird" or "bizarre" and see how quickly people start talking about it! Choosing an unusual item from our list of weirdest promotional products has the potential to make your business memorable enough to go down in the history books! Whether or not you believe the unusual promo items on this list are actually the weirdest promotional products out there, we think they’re definitely untraditional.

Am/Fm Radio With Earphone AM/FM Radio with Earphone – We bet you won’t find many clients who already have a fanny pack and radio combo in their trade show bags! The awesome, retro-inspired promo item you see to your left is called an AM/FM Radio with Earphone, and they are a staff favorite at Quality Logo Products. Really! How could they not be? We’d be super surprised if you wouldn’t use the word weird to describe these items.

Body Tape Measure with BMI Scale – Finally! A weird promotional item that allows you to measure your bulging biceps and determine your body mass index (BMI)! You never know; the Body Tape Measure with BMI Scale could be a lifesaver. Health food nuts, exercise enthusiasts, and weight-watching customers will find value in these BMI monitor and flexible tape measure combos, and we’re sure they’re not the only ones who will.

Hook-Style AM/FM Shower Radio – Do you have any idea how many people love singing in the shower? The Hook-Style AM/FM Radio gives trade show attendees a reason to stay in tune (maybe), and it will also give them a reason to call you back and tell you how much they appreciate the gift.

Collapsible Cup Pill Holder Combo Collapsible Travel Cup – Not that anyone would encourage taking medication while driving, but sometimes you’re in a hurry and you need to take your pills with you. These travel cups hold your pills and then fold right back down. Collapsible Cup Pill Holder Combos probably aren’t the most bizarre promo items you’ve ever seen, but they’re certainly not traditional!

Custom Soap – Hygiene is a sensitive subject, and that’s what makes people reluctant to hand out Soap Sheet Dispensers at crowded events. Don’t be shy – just step right up and give each potential customer some personalized soap! These unusual promotional items encourage cleanliness and help prevent disease, so you shouldn’t be afraid to use them. Soap Sheet Dispenser

Tooth Figure Stress Ball Bendable Figurines – What is it that people find bizarre about the Tooth Figure Stress Ball? Maybe it’s the wacky arms or the bendy legs...or perhaps it’s the stress-relieving foam. Show executives that it’s okay to have some fun when they’re at their desks and personalize some weird promo items like these for your events!

Magic Answer Ball - Face it, promotional items don’t usually predict the future or answer "yes" or "no" when you ask them questions. The Magic Answer Ball comes in all varieties (like basketball and baseball shapes), but its motive is the same: to get audiences clamoring about all of the awesome products and services you provide! Magic Answer Ball

DNA ID Kit and Fingerprint ID Kit – Crime shows have astronomically grown in popularity over the past couple of decades, but the DNA ID Kit and the Fingerprint ID Kit are still accused of being some of the weirdest promotional products. We think they’re wonderful, and they prove that problem-solving and sleuthing are cool!

Each product has space for company information such as a logo, a slogan, a phone number, an address, etc. Remember that unique and memorable promotional products tend to travel with the recipient, all the while exposing the business information to all kinds of people. Creating a useful and distinctive method to promote a business or service is one of the best ways to advertise!
