5 Christmas Marketing Ideas Every Business Should Consider

Deck the halls with boughs of merch! Love it or hate it, Christmas is fast approaching and, billed by many of us as the most wonderful time of the year, the scope for amplifying your brand over the festive period is huge. 

If you haven't already started to map out your Christmas marketing plans, don't worry. To give you a kick-start, we've rounded up some brilliant ways promotional merchandise can help your brand have a truly merry Christmas. 

#1 Invest In Promotional Advent Calendars For Customers & Colleagues

Our promotional Advent calendars are popular with our customers every Christmas, with a range of sizes and styles meaning there's something to suit every marketing budget. Ideal for giving your business a daily awareness fix, the universal appeal of Advent calendars means you can tailor them to make them as relevant and irresistible as possible to your target audience. 

All printed in full colour with your artwork, take your pick from our delicious standard chocolates or opt for something a little more special (we're looking at you, promotional Lindt Advent calendar).

Browse our range of personalised Advent calendars in full and contact us today for your quote - but be quick! We need to receive confirmation of your order by 1 November 2019 at the very latest in order to ensure delivery in time.

#2 Thank Your Clients With Carefully Chosen Corporate Christmas Gifts

Corporate Christmas giveaways are the ideal way to thank clients in style - and without breaking the bank! Prices for our promotional Mini Prosecco Bottles, for example, start from just £3.62 each, with the golden bottles offering eye-catching awareness for the bottles' artwork-printed labels

Whether you choose to gift them luxurious branded pens, bottles of promotional wine or perhaps even one of our ridiculously smart engraved Bamboo Wireless Charging Desk Tidies (shown above), we have a whole range of luxe gift options that will remind your customers of exactly how much you value them.

We also have mouthwatering edible Christmas gifts available, too; our custom-printed Green & Blacks Chocolate Box, for example, is filled with the brand's delicious chocolate bars and is clearly printed with the message on your choice. All personalised with your branding, these items are also ideal for ensuring they think of your business with every use.

For an extra flourish of branding potential, finish things off in style by presenting items in our promotional gift bags (shown above), which can be printed in up-to full colour with your branding.

#3 Raise A Glass To Your Staff With End-Of-Year Celebrations

If you're planning an end-of-year awards ceremony for your staff - or even just a good old Christmas party - we have the perfect promotional products to help it go with a brilliant bang.

Whether it's an informal bash or you decide to turn it into a more sophisticated celebration attended by colleagues and clients alike, our Awards Season category has everything you could possibly need to make your event a highlight of the annual office calendar.

Equally, if you're planning an in-house party, we also have a range of essentials that will make raising a proverbial glass a whole lot easier - and more on-brand! From promotional bottles of Prosecco to branded paper cups, we've got all the branded details you could possibly need to make it a party to remember for all the right reasons. 

#4 Help Customers Unwind With Festive Stress Toys

Whether it's money, family matters or finding the perfect gifts for loved ones, let's face it: Christmas can be stressful. With that in mind, help customers tackle the worries by gifting them with festive-themed stress toys, printed with your artwork.

Pick from our cheery Santa Stress Toy or promotional Stress Christmas Pudding for a tongue-in-cheek product that will help your customers tackle their festive worries. 

#5 Stock Up On Budget-Friendly Branded Giveaways For Festive Events

If your brand is exhibiting at a Christmas-themed event - such as a consumer fair, for example - it can pay to have some promotional products ready to hand-out to your customers. It will make your business stand out amongst any others that might be exhibiting, as well as make your brand name more memorable, too. 

From cheap-and-cheerful tree decorations to low-cost edible treats, we have a wide range of budget-friendly items which are all perfect for adding some festive cheer to your customers' Christmas.
