With all the snow, ice and general winter weather that the UK has experienced this past week, we thought it would be nice to look forward and focus on all things spring - and, rumour has it, spring 2021 is just around the corner - with our top spring-inspired promotional merchandise!
In fact, the start of the astronomical spring is just a few weeks away - Saturday 20th March, to be precise. OK, so what is an astronomical season? It refers to the position of the Earth's orbit in relation to the Sun, considering equinoxes and solstices meaning the start dates of these seasons can fall on different days each year. Compared with meteorological seasons that are based on annual temperatures and meteorological states, each season is three months long coinciding with the calendar to determine clear season start and end dates.

Fun fact alert: did you know that the first day of spring (also known as the vernal equinox) has 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness? Hold in there, people: there's not long to go until longer days, warmer weather and the arrival of new life in the form of budding plants and baby animals.
Now the scientific stuff is out of the way, let's focus on spring-friendly branded merchandise and how they can make your business awareness blossom.
1. Logo-Printed Merch For When The Sun Shines
According to a recent study, published by the Met Office, the warmest UK spring on record was in 2011, which had an average daytime temperature of 9.2 degrees celsius. The same study also notes that the sunniest spring in British history was in 1948, with an amazing 558 hours of sunshine recorded!
With that being said, it would make sense to gift your customers and colleagues alike with promotional products that are ideal for using on sunny spring days.
Our best-selling Brushed Heavy Cotton Caps, for example, are perfect for keeping the sunlight out of eyes when worn out-and-about. Available in a range of colours and with your logo embroidered to the front, these promotional hats advertise your brand in a stylish and luxurious manner.
Obviously these branded caps are not single-use items and they can be worn time and time again, offering repeated visibility for your logo and leaving a lasting impression with your target audience and all who they encounter.
Of course, now the sun is shining and the snow has (nearly) melted, it's time to put away the woolly jumpers and replace them with some brand new t-shirts. Our Fruit of the Loom Valueweight T-Shirts are a great choice - offering a large print area for your custom design and available in a wide range of colours, it's really no surprise they're a best-seller.
Ideal for members of your team to wear as part of their uniform, they're equally as good as a gift to your employees to show them how much your business values their loyalty and support. These printed t-shirts are also brilliant as part of your direct mail campaigns due to their lightweight design! Whatever the scenario, one thing is for sure: they'll be appreciated by all as the warm weather begins to set in.
2. Brace Yourself For April Showers With Rainproof Products
OK, so we've just mentioned the return of the sunshine but with the unpredictability of British weather, it's still a good idea to stock up on rainy weather essentials. After all, there's nothing quite as unpredictable as the UK's April showers...
Popular for good reason, our Promo Budget Golf Umbrellas are continuously chosen by UK businesses time and time again. Boasting your logo printed to one or all eight panels, a rainbow of colours to choose from and a lead time of just five working days from proof approval, it's no wonder these branded brollies are best sellers.
With their smart steel stem, twin-fluted ribs and now supplied with an upgraded black pistol grip handle (new for 2021), these printed umbrellas are sure to promote your branding every time there's a spring shower.
Our printed Ball Ponchos are ideally sized for popping into handbags or pockets, meaning your customers will have your brand to-hand when they need you most! Featuring a handy hook attachment, they can also be clipped to bags, belts and more.
Each poncho comes complete with a matching colour ball carrier printed with your logo for maximum impact. Choose from five bright colours for an eye-catching finish that will have all eyes on your brand even on the rainiest of spring days.
3. Pick Items That Will Put Your Brand In Full Bloom
When you think of spring, do you picture flowers and greenery coming to life and little lambs bouncing around the fields? Because here at Total Merchandise, we do! With spring being associated with rebirth, renewal and regrowth, it makes sense to invest in promotional merchandise that will see your brand awareness blossom - literally!
Watch your brand grow with our eco-friendly Sprout Pencils engraved with your logo. Once your customers are finished with the pencil, they simply plant them and watch the seeds grow into plants.
With a range of different plant and flower seeds available, there's an option to suit any business' needs and requirements.
Did you know that the first spring flowers are typically dandelions, daffodils, lilacs, lilies, iris' and tulips? Of course, a vase is needed to place your fresh flowers on prime display and our Pop Up Vases do just the job! With their innovative design made from unbreakable PVC plastic, these printed vases are ideal for sending directly to your target audience and can be used over and over again.
Printed with your business logo or message to the front of the vases, they place your brand on prime display in homes and offices across the UK!
4. Spring Clean Your Logo Exposure - Literally!
Defined by the Cambridge Dictionary, spring-cleaning is 'the act of cleaning all of a place, especially your house, very well, including parts you do not often clean'. Okay - but why is it called 'spring-cleaning'? Well, in the UK, it stems from when homes were heated by fireplaces and spring brought the opportunity to air the house and clean away any dirt that had accumulated over the winter.
With that being said, our Dustpan and Brush set could make an essential item for your customers as the weather warms up and the need-to-clean buzz kicks in.
Printed with your logo to the brush handle and the dustpan tray, these handy cleaning giveaways will draw attention to your brand with every use. Of course, these items can be used time and time again, meaning extended visibility from your brand. Tidy!
