Rumour has it, the start of spring is just around the corner... In fact, we only have to be patient for a matter of weeks for the astronomical spring to begin on Sunday 20th March 2022.
So, we thought it would be fitting to take a look at the season associated with rebirth, renewal and regrowth by highlighting the very best spring-inspired promotional merchandise to freshen up your brand awareness.
Whilst summer is voted the favourite of all four seasons amongst Brits, spring is a close second - with 24% of people choosing the season as their preferred time of year. It's not surprising when it's the season that brings us warmer temperatures and longer days, especially since it follows the cold, dark, miserable winter months.
In fact, the first day of spring (the vernal equinox) has exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness. Hold in there, people - there's not much longer to wait until better weather, more sunshine, and the arrival of new life in a range of plants and baby animals.
So, let's take a look at the best seasonal merchandise that is sure to make your brand awareness bloom!
1. Grow Your Branding with Sprout Pencils
Did you know that the first spring flowers are typically dandelions, daffodils, lilacs, lilies, iris and tulips? Just to name a few!
Although our Sprout Pencils don't feature the spring flowers mentioned above, they do offer equally beautiful flowers and plants, including sunflowers, daisies, forget-me-nots and more. Arguably one of the most fitting options for any spring-related marketing campaign, these unique pencils can be used as standard promotional pencils, but once the end-user has come to the end of the pencil, they can simply plant the end and watch as their plants grow.
2. Create A Buzz with Bee Mix Grow Pouches
Activities that occur in the honey bee colony vary with the seasons, and spring is the most important time of year for this species of bee.
Our Bee Mix Grow Pouches encourage busy bees and once printed with your full colour design to the label, they are certain to generate a buzz around your brand. Each pouch features innovative seed balls that flower between April and November, releasing fragrances that attract pollinators, such as bees.
3. Put Your Logo on Display with Pop Up Vases
With holidays such as Easter and Mother's Day occurring during spring, bunches of beautiful flowers will be springing up in homes across the UK.
If you want to put your brand in homes across the UK this spring, look no further than our brilliant Pop Up Vases. Supplied flat so they're letterbox-friendly, your customers can use these creative vases (printed with your logo, of course!) to showcase their beautiful flower arrangement. Not to mention, they're made from unbreakable PVC plastic, so they can be used over and over again; advertising your branding with every use.
4. Hop-On These Large Rabbit Logobugs
The Easter Bunny is symbolic of Easter and spring, and can be traced back to the 1700s!
Our Large Rabbit Logobugs are perfect for hopping on the spring theme. Personalised with your full colour design to the ribbon, these adorable logobugs add an oh-so-cute touch to your spring marketing.
5. Choose Speckled Chocolate Eggs for Cracking Brand Awareness
Did you know that in a typical year, £150 million is spent on shell-covered eggs?
Keep customers and colleagues sweet with these delicious Speckled Chocolate Eggs Maxi Pots, each pot filled with a selection of mouth-watering candy-coated mini eggs. Customised with your design printed to the domed label, they guarantee to have your brand at the tip of tongues - literally!
6. You've Picked the Right One with Picnic Lunch Boxes
The British picnic saved the lockdown summer of 2020, with people flocking to outdoors spaces to enjoy a spread of treats with friends and family.
As said by DeeDee Stovel, "A picnic is more than eating a meal, it is a pleasurable state of mind". Our promotional Picnic Lunch Boxes are brilliant for informal team meetings or team building days and even as complimentary lunch at your event! Each box can be printed with your full colour branding and is filled with a variety of lunchtime snacks!
7. Ensure Your Logo is Never in the Shade with Sunglasses
The spring of 2020 ranks as the sunniest spring on record, with 626.2 hours of sunshine!
Our Any Colour Sunglasses are - you guessed it - made, as closely as possible, to your colour of choice! Also printed with your business name, logo, or message to both arms, these branded sunglasses are completely bespoke to your brand or marketing campaign.
8. Something Up Your Sleeve? Brilliant Branding with T-Shirts
In 2021, the UK recorded the warmest March day in 53 years with temperatures reaching 24.5 degrees celcius!
Available in 70 different colours, there really is a colour to suit any company and its marketing message with our Gildan Heavy Cotton T-Shirts. These best-selling printed t-shirts are perfect for promoting your brand in the welcomed sunshine.
9. Choose Branded Umbrellas for Exposure During April Showers
Did you know that the phrase "April showers bring May flowers" can be traced back to the 1500s when English poet Thomas Tusser wrote "Sweet April showers do spring May Flowers"?
Our Express Value Supermini Telescopic Umbrellas are ideal for having to hand when the UK has those unexpected showers. Perfectly sized to fit in bags, available at unbeatable low prices, and can be dispatched from just five working days, it's no wonder these branded brollies have made our top 10 list of spring-friendly merchandise.
10. Tap Into the Spring Clean with Classic Cloth Dusters
You may have heard of the Great British Bake Off, but are you aware of the Great British Spring Clean? The event is organised by the organisation Keep Britain Tidy and it encourages Brits to clean up our country via litter picking and other activities.
Although these Classic Cloth Dusters can't help with litter picking, they certainly help with de-dusting homes and workplaces! Made from 100% cotton and printed with your logo, they put your brand straight into the hands of your customers when they need you the most.
