Ever feel like your event swag is a little stale? Don’t fret! We understand that it can be hard to keep on top of what’s trending and what’s not in the world of promotional items, especially with a to-do list a mile long.

Check out these five popular swag items that any of your attendees would love to get at your next event! 

1. Power Banks


How often have you realized last minute that your phone is on low battery and there is no charger in sight? The solution? Power banks! While a more expensive promotional item, providing a branded power bank as your event swag item will no doubt be a delight to your attendees in this time of crisis and also be an item they will use again and again.

2. Socks


From a marketing perspective, there’s not much better than seeing someone wearing a fun, wearable swag item that has your brand on it. It practically sells itself and allows you to add a little spunk into your marketing, as you can go outside of your comfort zone with design. Best of all, most professionals love funky socks as they can either keep them hidden under their pant leg or show them off – dealers choice!

3. Coffee Sleeves


For most professionals, caffeine is a must in the morning. And depending on your type of travel cup, a sturdy coffee sleeve might be a daily item you use. So why not provide a branded version for your attendees? Remember, your goal is to provide a branded item that attendees will utilize without breaking the bank. Sounds like a win-win to us.

4. Sunglasses


When you think about items that most people need when they are on the go, sunglasses is definitely on the top ten list. So why not have fun with it? People are always looking for another pair of sunglasses, so try and spice up your swag game by providing branded sunglasses in funky colors relative to your company’s brand.

5. Chapstick


We don’t know about you, but we think there is little worse than having chapped lips and your attendees probably feel the same. With this small swag item being light in weight, easy to hand out to attendees without much hassle, and fairly low in cost, we think it’s a homerun!

You likely spend a lot of time (and money) planning your events. So naturally, you want them to be successful! You want your attendees to have a great time (a personalized event app can help with this), and hopefully, come back for more events in the future.
