Corporate Gifts for A Washed Out British Summer

It has been confirmed that April to June 2012 will go down in history as the wettest on record making it time to crack out those warm promotional products and warm up a chilly Summer. The Met Office has released figures showing that not only have we just experienced the wettest months on record but also the dullest. June 2012 was the dullest June since 1909 with only 123 hours of sunshine.

There have been flash floods, golf ball-sized hail stones and small bouts of sunshine making it the most unpredictable weather most of us have experienced. July is also predicted to be very much like June.

With this unpredictability, it is important to prepare for all weathers whether it be hot, cold or in between and we have the perfect promotional products small enough to be carried around in all weathers. The small promotional eco tele umbrella is perfect for unpredictable weather. It is small enough to fit in a bag, yet big enough to keep you from getting wet when the rain does start to pour. Not only does the umbrella have space for branding but it is also very eco-friendly. The umbrella is made from 100% recycled PET bottles and the handle is 70% recycled steel, so you can be eco-friendly whatever the weather.

Also perfect for spontaneous wet weather is the 'ball poncho'. The emergency poncho attaches to a keyring so it can be carried around at all times with ease. The ponchos are a great budget alternative to the rain mac and we think more useful as well. Just like the umbrella, it is small enough to keep out of the way yet still close at hand. Promotional ponchos are great advertisement when there is an unexpected downpour as those unprepared will look at those wearing them with jealousy. Your brand name will then stay with them as they look for somewhere to purchase an emergency poncho.

The hand warmers are also a great small item. These are reusable so can be used hundreds of times throughout Summer and Winter. The hand warmers reach temperatures of 52 degrees so are perfect for warming hands up during those Summer fêtes! Hand warmers can also be used as therapeutic products to relieve symptoms of arthritis and muscular pains.

Even if Summer is a complete washout, these fantastic promotional products can continue to be used throughout Autumn and Winter, making them a great investment for your business.
