We're officially in the thick of 2021 now: our Christmas cheer has faded, the decorations are down and we're already halfway through January.
Of course, this is no ordinary start to the new year. With the country currently in lockdown due to Coronavirus, many of us are working (and learning) from home, limiting our social contact with others and generally trying our best to follow the guidelines laid out by the government to slow the spread of COVID-19.
- 15 Promotional Products To Make Working From Home Easier In 2021
- The Best Promotional Items To Tackle Stress This Winter
The restrictions mean that life is very different for many of us at the moment - gyms are closed, our social interactions are largely limited to screens and stress and anxiety are running rampant. In fact, according to statistics shared by the Mental Health Foundation, almost half (46%) of UK adults said they felt 'stressed' or 'worried' during the November 2020 lockdown, with a further quarter admitting they felt lonely.
With all that in mind, now's the perfect opportunity to give some thought to how you can use health and wellbeing products to help your customers feel more protected over the next few months, including...
- Branded hand sanitiser to help keep hands clean when soap and water aren't available
- Face coverings printed with your branding - a must-have for colleagues and customers alike
- Branded giveaways to make exercise from home and in the great outdoors that bit easier
- Tech essentials to ensure staying socially connected via Zoom, Facetime and so on is kept simple
- Promotional wellbeing items to remind your recipients to look after their mental health
And so much more!
In short, we've got all the branded items your business could need to assert itself as one that cares this winter. Read on to find out more and get seriously inspired for your upcoming marketing campaigns!
Start Simple: Top-Up Supplies Of Branded Face Masks
Whether you're ordering for your staff, your customers or both, you can be confident that promotional face masks will be worn. After all, with Brits currently required to wear face coverings in a huge range of settings - including in shops, on transport and in many other places (see the full list for more) - the need to own an adequate supply of them is high.
From branded reusable face masks to throwaway options, we've got a wide range of face coverings available that are ideal for the needs of your recipients. For example, retail workers might prefer the single-use nature of our 3 Layer Disposable Face Masks, which can be donned for one shift only and then responsibly disposed of afterwards.
Our protective Printed Face Shields might also appeal to busy workers, whilst our branded Face Mask Straps will help to make face coverings feel that bit more bearable when worn for prolonged periods.
Equally, customers that need to do essential shopping or take public transport might appreciate reusable face masks. With washing recommended after every use, it's undoubtedly useful to own a selection of re-wearable face masks in order to limit the possibility of 'running out' at any point.
We have a wide range of branded face masks available for your consideration, with options to suit every business and marketing budget. Whether you want a subtle logo print or are looking for a covering with your all-over design, we've got the perfect option for you!

Help Minimise Germs With Branded Hand Sanitiser
Advice regarding handwashing has been consistent throughout the pandemic, with the importance of keeping hands clean reiterated regularly. With that in mind, ensuring that copious supplies of hand sanitiser are available is essential - whether it's for staff or customers to use in-store or when out-and-about, it's a must-have item that will help people feel that little bit more protected as they go about their business.
Looking for hand sanitiser solutions for a working environment? Depending on your budget, shops and office spaces can benefit from either our minimal contact dispensers or our large pump-action bottles. Both are ideal for positioning in shop entrances, by office doorways and so on, ensuring people have no excuse to not clean their hands as they enter and leave.
Our Free Standing Sanitiser Dispenser, for example, can be ordered from just one unit, making it ideal for smaller business or retail settings. Delivered plain stock, it features an A4 information area, which can be used to display your own corporate safety messages for fuss-free branding. Alternatively, our Stainless Steel Pedal Hand Sanitiser Dispenser is another solid option; operated by foot, this pedal-pump dispenser minimises contact and comes delivered with a one-litre bottle of sanitiser.
You can even go eco with the branded hand sanitiser you choose - products such as our 30ml Refillable Branded Hand Sanitiser Spray can be topped up once empty, as well as be fully recycled once no longer needed.

Winter-Warmer Promotional Items For Exercising Outdoors
With the temperatures frosty - and the threat of seasonal snow and ice only ever a forecast away - it's safe to say that the coming months will be a little on the chilly side. (And let's not dwell on the so-called 'Beast from the East' that could be on its way, according to the Met Office...)
With gyms currently closed due to COVID-19, many Brits are heading outdoors to get their exercise fix - so why not help make the experience that bit more comfortable for them with our essentials for heading outside?
From cosy branded beanies to hand warmer heat packs, we've got all sorts of pocket-friendly must-haves that can be branded with your logo and are ideal for making outdoor exercise that bit more tolerable during the colder months. Whether you're looking to launch a lifestyle campaign, run a fitness business or are simply keen to remind your customers you're there for them, we've got you covered.
And of course, it doesn't end there, either. We've also got a huge range of exercise must-haves for your staff and customers to incorporate into their fitness regimes, from branded water bottles to home workout equipment. From clip-on pedometers and LED armbands (a must-have for jogging in the dark) to resistance bands for training in the living room, we've got products to suit every interest, fitness level and marketing budget!
Whichever products you choose, promotional exercise items are a great way to show your business is invested in the health and wellbeing of its customers, as well as making your brand a part of your recipients' daily routines.

Choose Branded Tech For Helping People To Stay Connected
Whilst technology might not exactly scream 'health', it does tap into wellbeing. After all, lockdown means our interactions with our loved ones - be it friends, family and perhaps even colleagues - are at an all-time minimum.
Happily, technology means that we're still able to connect via the likes of Facetime and Zoom, so ensuring a comfortable and fully-charged experience is essential - which is pretty critical when you consider that at one point during the pandemic Zoom alone hosted an estimated 300 million meeting participants on a daily basis...
The beauty of investing in promotional gadgets is that they're not seasonal, nor are they single-use wonders. Rather, you can be confident that they'll be reused time after time Branded power banks are ideal for giving battery-drained mobiles a chance to recharge in between calls; similarly, charging cables printed with your logo will be a godsend for busy families that find themselves arguing over who last saw the Apple charger.
