Top 10 Christmas Gifts For Event Giveaways

As we all know: Christmas is a time for giving. So much so, in fact, that the average UK household typically spends an average of £473.83 on Christmas presents! (That's according to this study, at least.)

A recent study published by the BPMA shows that 83% of people who receive promotional merchandise will remember the brand for an average of 12 months, with 79% admitting they were likely to do business with the company in the future. So, what better time to give out personalised giveaways than at Christmas?

We have a wide range of seasonal corporate gifts suitable for the festive period and here, we've gathered our top 10 promotional Christmas gifts you can present to your customers at upcoming events...

1. Branded Phone Accessories

Fun fact: 6.8 million new iOS and Android devices will be set up on Christmas Day! So, why not gift your customers with a smart branded accessory to go with their sleek new device? These Smart Pop Phone Holders are the ideal gift for anyone who can't get away from their mobile phone. Available in a choice of black or white, these phone holders include elastic between the sticky disc and the faceplate for comfort for any size hands.

These handy little grips can also be used as a phone stand by slotting the faceplate into the groves on the disc. Personalised with your logo printed in up to full colour, they're available from just 90p per unit.

2. Personalised Luggage Tags

According to a recent study, the Travel Association estimates over 4.7 million Brits will travel abroad for Christmas. We may wish for a white Christmas every year but the UK only has a 1 in 10 chance of having a white Christmas instead, it's usually miserably wet - no wonder so many people decide to go elsewhere for Christmas.

Our Large Belluno Luggage Tags are a travel essential that allows your brand to be seen across the world! Available in a range of colours, our favourite for the Christmas season has got to be vibrant red. For a completely bespoke finish, why not opt for contrasting stitching? 

These branded luggage tags are a fantastic business giveaway, especially during the festive period, and can be personalised with your company design in either full colour or embossed for lasting brand awareness.

3. Customised Desktop Christmas Tree Tubes

Nearly 60 million Christmas Trees are grown in Europe each year, with eight million natural Christmas trees bought in the UK alone.

To add a sprinkle of festivity to your clients' desks, these branded Christmas Tree Desktop Garden Tubes tick all of the boxes. Let's be honest, who doesn't want to grow their own Christmas Tree? Let alone on their desks! Made from recycled brushed aluminium these Christmas Trees add an eco-friendly touch to your Christmas event giveaway.

Each tube is complete with a full-colour label displaying your company logo for all to see. Supplied with an innovative Fraser Fir seed, a popular Christmas Tree, that will germinate in as little as a week!

4. Promotional Bluetooth Speakers

The UK best-selling festive single is Band Aid's 1984 track 'Do They Know It's Christmas?', with over 3.8 million copies sold in the UK. You'll having that playing in your head all day now...

To really spread the Christmas cheer, you need to fill the room with festive music - and these Smart Aluminium Bluetooth Speakers do just the job. Not only are they a great way to leave a lasting impression on your customers but they're a also a giveaway with a high-perceived value, adding a sense of luxury to your campaign.

These branded mini speakers connect wirelessly to your customer's phone or tablet via Bluetooth with a 10 meter range and multi-functional control panel. Printed with your custom design to the front of the speaker to effortlessly advertise your brand.


Another musical fact for you: in 2018, Mariah Carey's hit single All I Want For Christmas Is You made a return to the Official UK Singles Chart Top 40 - this was the 12th consecutive year the Christmas single has re-entered the Top 40!

5. Personalised Earphones 

Trivia alert: did you know that the video for the 1984 Christmas hit Last Christmas was the last time George Michael was filmed without a beard?

For the commute to work during December a pair of earphones are essential for watching the videos of the best Christmas smash hits (regardless of whether they feature beards or not!). Our Cocoon Earphones are the perfect way to do so, all the while flaunting your branding. Stylish and ergonomically shaped, they promise improved comfort for your customers to listen to their favourite songs.

Compatible with devices included iPod, iPhone, Android, and most MP3 players, these promotional earphones are available in a variety of vibrant colours and are supplied in a crystal case personalised with your company logo in up to stunning full colour.

6. Promotional Beer

We all know that Christmas 'tis the season to be jolly - and with all that merry-making, a lot of alcohol is consumed. In fact, the amount of beer consumed in the UK over the Christmas period is enough to fill 57 Olympic sized swimming pools!

At your next event, why not look at giving out personalised beer for your beer-loving customers. These promotional beers are sure to draw attention to your brand, printed with your logo to a full-colour digital label. Available from just £2.40 per unit, take your pick from four premium imported beers.

And for your clients that wouldn't crack a bottle of promotional beer open, Total Merchandise has you and your customers sorted with our wide range of branded drinks!

7. Branded Bottle Openers

As mentioned above, 57 Olympic sized swimming pools can be filled with the amount of beer consumed by Brits during the Christmas season - but those swimming pools would be bone-dry without a bottle opener!

Our Metal Bottle Opener Keychains are an effective and low-cost promotional product that is guaranteed to flaunt your brand every time a bottle of chosen beverage is cracked open. Each bottle opener is engraved with your custom design for permanent brand exposure, offering a high perceived value giveaway option.

Some sobering trivia for you. There are only two drinks more widely consumed globally other than beer: tea and water!

8. Customised Christmas Pudding Stress Balls

A whopping £48,000,000 is spent on Christmas puddings each year in the UK. Although our promotional Stress Christmas Puddings aren't strictly edible, they do make an excellent addition to your event giveaways.

A fun giveaway idea with an excellent festive theme, these Stress Christmas Puddings are an effective way for your customers to relieve the stress that comes during the Christmas period. Printed with your logo, they're guaranteed to advertise your brand with every use.

9. Promotional Crystal Soft Stylus Ballpens

We hate to admit it but we've all been there: unwrapping a present to find we are slightly (or very) disappointed with the gift we have received. In fact, a whopping £700 million is spent on unwanted Christmas gifts each year. 

So, gift your customers with a branded product that they will want and appreciate. A recent study published by the BPMA shows writing instruments are the most popular form of promotional merchandise, taking up 56% of the UK merchandise market. 

Our Crystal Soft Stylus Ballpens are a promotional giveaway that is sure to draw attention to your brand with every use and add a touch of sparkle to your marketing campaign. Personalised with your company logo printed to the pen for maximum brand exposure. 

These glamorous and eye-catching crystal ballpens are available from as little as 98p per unit and are available with a velveteen pouch at a small extra cost.
