Blooming Wonderful Merchandise for Your 2020 Spring Campaigns

Rumour has it that spring is just around the corner... In fact, the very first day of spring 2020 is Friday 20th March - less than a fortnight away! With the season associated with rebirth, renewal and regrowth, there really is no better time to give your campaigns a spring clean with some brand new promotional merchandise.


Blooming Great Spring-Related Branded Items For Your 2020 Campaigns

Before we jump into the best spring-worthy promotional products, let's take a look at what the season is actually all about. This year, the vernal equinox (otherwise known as the first day of spring) falls on Friday 20th March 2020; however, spring can start at different times depending on who you ask. When looking at the astronomical calendar, the first day of spring is 20th March 2020, although meteorologists state that spring actually begins on March 1st, running until 31st May.

Now the scientific bit is out the way, it's time to read on and discover TM's top picks of branded items to help your spring campaigns truly blossom - and to learn some interesting facts about the season that you probably didn't know before!

1. Get Ready For Those Famous April Showers

Some may argue that April showers are an old wives’ tale, with the saying “March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers” suggesting they're more of a rhyme-friendly convenience than steeped in actual reality. However! There the tune definitely has a basis in scientific fact, simply referring to the fact April typically sees more rain than any other month.

Did you know that the wettest spring on record was in 1947? That particular season saw an extraordinary 331.7mm of rain fall! 

With that in mind, it would be a good idea to keep your customers and colleagues prepared for the expected showers, no? And what better way than with some rain-proof merch...

Promo Budget Golf Umbrellas

Lead time: Five working days on our Express service.

Great for keeping your brand on display on even the gloomiest of British days, these branded umbrellas are continuously one of our best-selling promotional products. Available in an array of colours and printed with your company design for a completely bespoke and eye-catching finish, they're as cost-effective as they are practical for your customers.

Ball Ponchos

Lead time: 10 working days.

Perfect for clipping onto a bag or neatly storing in a bag, our promotional ponchos guarantee to put your brand directly into your customers' hands when they need you the most. Made from PVC, these emergency ponchos come complete with a matching coloured plastic ball carrier and snap hook attachment.

2. Forget White Christmas - It's More Likely To Be A White Easter

Although us Brits are always dreaming of a white Christmas, it is, in fact, more likely for the UK to experience snow around Easter time. Looking at the stats, December has an average snow or sleet fall of 3.9 days, whilst March has an impressive 4.2 days. However, due to Easter falling on April 12th this year, we have a smaller chance of snow - April typically has an average snow and sleet fall of just 2.3 days.

Curved Ice Scrapers

Lead time: Five working days express.

As Brits, we're ever-hopeful for sunshine - though during the spring months, we can still experience the occasional frosty morning. With that in mind, make sure your clients are still thinking of your business on even the freshest of spring mornings with a branded ice scraper.

Boasting a generous print area for your logo, these Curved Ice Scrapers are available in your choice of nine striking colours.

3. The First Teaser Of The Summer Sun Yet To Come

That being said, spring can also mean some serious sunshine, too. So why not arm your customers with seasonal-appropriate accessories that can help them keep cool on even the warmest of spring days? 

Fun fact: the warmest English spring on record was in 2011, when the season had an average daytime temperature of 9.2 degrees celsius. Fingers crossed 2020 can beat 2011's positively balmy climes!

Classis Sunglasses

Lead time: Five working days on our express service.

Our Classic Sunglasses promise to put your brand at the forefront of your customers' minds - quite literally! With UV400 protection and available in a choice of vibrant colours, these branded sunglasses are the perfect giveaway to tie-in with your spring promotions.

Lead time: 10 working days.

These Brushed Heavy Cotton Caps are among our best-sellers for a reason! With your logo embroidered on the front, they ensure long-lasting and high impact brand exposure for your business. If you're looking for a high-perceived value item that appeals to a wide audience, search no further.

4. Work Within The Property Industry? You're In Luck!

According to a recent study published by the National Association of Realtors, spring is the most popular time of year to sell and buy a house. So, if your business sits within the property industry, now's the perfect time to invest in new promotional merchandise to ensure your marketing can blossom.

House Seed Sticks

Lead time: 10-15 working days.

If you're looking for an industry-related branded item that fits perfectly with the start of spring, look no further than these House Seed Sticks. Each pack includes five seed sticks with the house-shaped packaging customised with your full-colour corporate branding printed to both sides for maximum impact.

Concrete Vegan Candles

Lead time: Five working days.

Did you know that your sense of smell can be more acute during springtime, due to there being more moisture in the air? With that in mind, these promotional candles are ideal for your spring 2020 campaigns, especially if you work within the property or interiors industries. Available in a range of different colours and effects, each candle features your custom design engraved to the concrete pot.

Follow the lead of Persephone (the Ancient Greek goddess of springtime, naturally) with our spring-perfect promotional merchandise. If you don't find what you're looking for, give our friendly sales team a call and they will be able to help you find the perfect item for your spring marketing.
