Promotional Summer Products

This just in, people: summer is almost upon us!

With the season officially starting on 21 June 2021 and with months of sunshine (well, hopefully...) stretching out ahead of us, there's no better time to think about the summer promotional items that will brighten up summer for your customers.


Editor’s Note: This article was originally written in summer 2020 and has been updated for 2021.

Of course, summer 2021 is going to be a little different for many Brits due to the impact of Coronavirus and the slow easing of restrictions. However, whilst overseas holidays might not necessarily be on the cards at the moment, that's not to say your customers or colleagues won't be able to max the 'fun in the sun' potential - with your brand helping them every step of the way. After all, the UK is finally forecast to see at least 13 days of ultimate heat...

From branded caps to promotional sunglasses, we have all sorts of branded giveaways available that are perfect for helping your branding shine bright as the sun throughout the summer heatwave. Browse our full range of summer promotional products and read on to discover some of our favourites...

Help People Keep Hydrated With Our Branded Water Bottles

Dehydration is all too easy to fall victim to in the blazing heat of summer - so help your customers and colleagues hit their H20 quota by giving them promotional water bottles, printed with your logo. Whether they're used at home, in the workplace or on their travels, our range of branded water bottles are perfectly sized for transporting to the beach, the office, the gym and so on. 

We have a wide range of printed water bottles available (including promotional metal water bottles, branded plastic water bottles and more), with options available in all sorts of shapes, styles and sizes.

With many of our branded water bottles available in a wide range of different colours, you can be confident that you'll find the perfect match for your corporate identity - and you can even tap the 'Full Colour' filter to view the custom water bottles that can be printed top-to-toe with your artwork, too.

Browse our full section of branded water bottles printed with your logo.

Keep Staff Cool With Desktop USB Fans

Whether your colleagues are still working from home or are back in the office, one thing's for certain: the air-con struggle will be real. From stuffy workplaces and window wars to home offices that feel more humid than the Amazon rainforest, a muggy working environment isn't exactly conducive for your colleagues to deliver brilliance. 

With that in mind, help make it a thing of the past by providing your staff - whether in person or through the post - with their very own Desktop USB Fans. Perfectly sized for helping workers keep their collective cool throughout the day, these mini branded fans are perfectly sized for sitting on a desk. With your logo printed in up to four colours on the centre of the fan, it will offer inescapable visibility for your logo, all summer long.

We have other fan options available, too: our Fabric Handheld Fans feature your logo printed onto the handle; want to emblazon a fan with your artwork? Be sure to take a look at our Full Colour Fabric Folding Fans, which are great for offering high-impact brand awareness.

We also have handheld fans available; printed with your artwork in one colour, they offer striking impact for your logo.

Keep Customers Covered With Branded Ponchos

Considering the miserable wet weather the UK experienced throughout May, it might be wise to give some thought to rainy day promotional giveaways. 

Of course, there's one key product that instantly springs to mind when it comes to keeping dry in case of unexpected downpours: printed ponchos!

Disposable Printed Ponchos With Your Logo From Total Merchandise

Throw Some Shade (In A Good Way!) With Promotional Sunglasses

Whilst sunglasses arguably go hand-in-hand with summer, they're really an all-year-round promotional product - meaning they can offer your business 365 days of effortless brand awareness.

We have a wide range of promotional sunglasses available at Total Merchandise, ranging from our best selling classic Sun Ray Sunglasses all the way through to our eco-friendly Bamboo Fibre Sunglasses.

Offer Protection From The Sun With Promotional Hats

Our range of summer-friendly headwear includes everything from branded caps printed with your logo to promotional sun visors. With our promotional hats available in a wide range of colours and styles, we're confident that you'll find exactly what you're looking for to match your customers!

Want to offer your staff or customers something a little smarter, perhaps for use at a sporting event or outdoors consumer show? Our branded straw hats could be the perfect pick; as well as offering protection from the sun, they feature your full colour branding printed on the ribbon.

Buying promotional merchandise for a school or heading up a marketing campaign that's targeted at children and their parents? We've got you covered there, too. 

From our Solaris Kids Sun Hats to our Infants' Legionnaire Caps, our branded hats for children are available in a wide range of cheerful colours and are perfect for keeping little ones safe from the rays of the sun.

Put Your Best Foot Forward With Promotional Flip Flops

Ideal for travel campaigns - perhaps centring around staycations or camping trips - our branded flip flops are perfect for ensuring your business goes with your customer on every step they take. Quite literally! 

With your logo prominently printed on the sole or strap in up to four colours, our branded flip flops are ideal for making your business a part of the action.

For a cheaper option, you might want to consider our classic printed flip flops, which are branded with your logo to either the heel or strap. Available for dispatch in just ten working days, they're a great choice if you've got your logo ready and want to find a quick-turnaround summer promotional product that will also offer lasting awareness for your business.

Make A Splash With Branded Beach Accessories

From branded beach towels embroidered with your logo to printed beach chairs, we've got a wide range of promotional items that are ideal for incorporating your business into the fun this summer.

We also have summer promotional items that will make spending time at the beach feel that bit more agreeable, too; for example, our Fold Up Beach Mats are printed with your logo in up to four colours for maximum impact (as well as minimum sand discomfort!), whilst our Foldable Beach Chairs offer a comfortable seating solution. 

We've even got promotional water pistols available, printed with your logo in up to four colours. Adored by adults and kids alike, these summer promotional items are perfect for playing with at the beach, in the park or in the garden. It doesn't end there: we also have branded beach balls and inflatable footballs, too. 

Browse our full range of promotional products for outdoor pursuits.

Promote Health & Wellbeing With Branded Sun Cream

For a great promotional giveaway that can suit everything from health campaigns to travel marketing, why not consider branded sun cream?

We have a broad selection of sun cream and sun block products, all of which can be custom printed with your logo and artwork. 

Finally: just in case things don't quite go to plan, why not assert your business as one that's always there, even in times of need? Our promotional My Kit Sunburn Kit is here to help. Printed with your full colour branding to the exterior of the kit, it contains sachets of suncream, Aloe Vera gel and burn wound lint pads, as well as two refreshing wipes and a lip balm.
