Capture the Bank Holiday with The Perfect Promotional Gifts

Monday 27th August sees this years final bank holiday and you can capture onto the Bank Holiday fun with promotional gifts.

Recent figures show that over a bank holiday many Brits choose to carry out home improvements rather than enjoy the day with their families. The number of respondents who were choosing to stay home and do some needed DIY was a staggering 40%! This is because people feel a bank holiday is an extra day off, so they choose to do things they wouldn't generally do on their weekends. Weekends are considered to be 'rest' and fun days not days to be worked. This means by the bank holiday Monday many people feel fully rested and ready to go back to work.

If you want to target these people for your business we have various tools and promotional items you can invest in. Our mini tool set is great for small DIY jobs. It comes with four screw attachments as well as a spirit leveller and a blue light for accuracy. These are great not only for bank holidays but for any DIY jobs. The mini tool sets would also be good promotional items for Christmas as parents always struggle to find a screw driver to put together small toys for kids.

Another common bank holiday activity is a day out and a picnic. Picnics are enjoyed by all throughout the UK. It is a fun excursion which involves eating food outside, enjoying others company and nature. Picnics vary from person to person, some enjoy traditional sandwiches which others like to bring sausage rolls and treats. It doesn't matter how you decide to do it, if you are eating outside on a blanket then it is picnic.

We have a number of picnic related items available. One product in particular which we feel is very necessary when having a picnic is a cool bag. A cool bag is designed to keep your food cool on a warm day, giving it that fresh taste when you take it out of the bag. We have different type of cool bags on this site depending on your budgets. When having a picnic you also need a blanket.Our fleece blanket with pouch is very handy. These roll up really small and come in a variety of colours which can help you with your company branding.

The last bank holiday of the year isn't far off, so make sure you stock up on those promotional gifts fast!
