5 Promotional Items for the UK Christmas Culinary Season

Christmas is traditionally one of the more sociable times of the year, especially in terms of dining, so perhaps now is the time to think of targeting our national culinary obsession with some cleverly thought out promotional items for the UK cooking and baking devotees out there. 

Why Should You Target The Culinary Market At Christmas?

You just have to look at the amount of cookery TV programs, books and events to understand our nation's love for cooking and baking. For example, did you know we're actually slap bang in the middle of National Curry week right now? The UK’s love of curry is stronger than ever, so it's not surprising there's a whole week dedicated to it. 

However, in the run-up to Christmas, if ever there was a time for people to think of cooking, it's December. Between informal get-togethers, office treats, visiting family and friends and of course the big Christmas dinner – the kitchen will be the busiest place of all. 

Take the opportunity to giveaway some truly useful promotional items that will get well used over the next few weeks and indeed throughout the year. 

Full-Length Apron 

A custom branded full-length apron, suitable for home use as well as trade. Great in the kitchen for keeping the ever-busy chief free from splashes and spills. Your embroidered company logo will have pride of place on the top half. 

Measuring Spoon Sets 

An ideal addition to the kitchen drawer, so no more guesswork! These spoons are attached to a ring and include sizes: 1, 2.5, 5 and 15ml. Your company's logo can fit nicely on the arm of the spoon. 

Wooden Chopping Boards 

These promotional wooden chopping boards can be laser engraved or hot stamped with your logo for maximised exposure with every meal your customers prepare. A useful gift that will last well past this Christmas season. 

Kitchen Timer Magnets 

Any cook will tell you, timing is key! Your clients will never set off the smoke alarms again with this promotional timer. Not only does it have a digital display, but it's also magnetic so you can put it on any metal surface to remind you. With a clear, large area under the controls for your company logo, your company will never be far from mind. 

Slate Serving Plates 

Not all your customers will be the best cooks so help them distract with fantastic presentation instead! These engraved slate serving plates are perfect for serving up your brand and serving up small delicacies. 

We have a huge range of promotional Christmas gifts on our special corporate Christmas gift ideas section to suit the UK obsession with all things culinary and best of all, they can be used all year round so your brand exposure can be long term. That's value for money!
