The Perfect Freshers Week Gift

It may feel like the universities have only just broken up for the summer, but that first week back is going to come round quickly. That's why we've put together the perfect freshers week promotional gift, to make sure they return fully prepared with everything they need!

1. Coloured Cotton Tote Bag
This is what will hold each item making it convenient for a student to carry, and its bright colour means it's highly noticeable. These come in lots of different colours which will create a bit of demand because students tend to want their favourite colour or the same one as their friends. A bag is one of the most useful items you could provide as it's perfect for carrying books or a sports kit all year round, not just on the first day back, which will give your brand a lot more exposure than a smaller item.

2. Americano Mugs
For a university student, this will be perfect because coffee, or tea for some, is a necessity for getting to those early morning lectures on time! The fact it's a travel cup will be appealing because it means it can go to lectures with them and also they can put their own coffee in it, making it cheaper and therefore student loan friendly!

3. Curvy Stylus Ballpens
As we've proven many times before, a pen is the most popular choice for a promotional product, and what student doesn't have a use for a pen? This particular one also features a stylus on the end for use with a tablet or mobile phone.

4. A5 Pad
We think including a notepad will compliment the pen. These two items go hand in hand and will come in useful for quick note-taking. It could be considered a bit traditional when students tend to have computers and tablets now, but we still think a good old pen and paper combo comes in handy every now and again. After all, they don't run out of battery.

5. Talon Bottle Opener Keyring
Let's face it, students drink. They will almost definitely be glad of a handy bottle opener attached to their keys and it lightens the promotional gift by letting them know you're aware it's not all about studying!

6. USB Flashdrive Twist
For saving and keeping track of all those essays and revision notes. A student necessity.

7. 35ml Reusable Plastic Shot Glass
Last but not least is a shot glass, which is thrown in there for the same reasons as the bottle opener! We think it's nice to include some surprises.

Put together a promotional gift like this and students will be ready to start their year. Of course, this is just a basis and we have many other items to choose from in our Fresher's Week section. You could easily swap some of the products in our gift for some you might like better!
