As January sets in, marketeers are starting to look at promotional merchandise for the year ahead. This includes Valentines Day, Easter and seasonal holidays like Spring and Summer. When it comes to promotional merchandise it is always best to be prepared.
The first 'holiday' is St Valentines Day which occurs on the 14th February. As many businesses are concentrating on Christmas, this is a holiday which often gets forgotten, many businesses wait until Easter and Spring time to give another marketing push. So if you want to go one up on your competitors, you can invest in items of promotional merchandise ready for Valentines Day. Once you have decided to invest, the only question is what should you choose?
One of our most popular items around this time of year in the promotional pop up vase. Valentines is a day for chocolates and wine, so you will ensure your business gets seen by dishing out pop up vases. So, what makes pop up vases so popular? It's simple, they are an innovative design which is made from PVC plastic. This means that it is unbreakable and can be used over and over again. Not only that, but due to their design they can fold up flat which makes them perfect for mail outs, and also for storing when not in use. They are the ideal business gift as they can be used at home or kept in the office.
We have already mentioned that chocolates are popular for Valentines Day, so this is another marketing tactic you could use. We don't think you need to send out an entire box of chocolates, after all that's what partners are for! However, you could send a small chocolate shape. These are a very appealing and low cost give away. They come in a variety of different shapes, so you can either match the chocolate to your business industry, or you could choose a cork shape to celebrate Valentines Day.
Another popular gift for Valentines Day is wine. Again, we sell small promotional bottles of wine which you can send out. Our bottles of wine are of a standard size, and can be printed with your businesses logo and message. This makes it more personal to your business as well as ensuring that the recipient knows who gave them the wine!
Valentines Day is a great holiday to base your marketing efforts around, many businesses don't realise quite how effective it can be. Ensure you are making them most of every opportunity with romantic promotional merchandise.
