Top Five Promotional Items Under £1

On a strict budget?  Lots of businesses, particularly small ones, are!  We've pulled together our top five promotional items with a unit cost of under £1 to help you.

Our Golf Tees are one product which have a unit cost of under £1 and a great executive gift. Not many people know that the development of the golf tee was one of the last changes in the rules of golf. There have been no major changes to the rules since this date. A tee is required in every game of golf and normally used for the first stroke of each hole. This means if you are to distribute golf tees to your customers, it's very likely they will be used.

You may find it surprising that we even have stress toys with a unit cost of under £1!  Stress toys can be of any shape, with the first of its kind being the shape of a ball. The toy is squeezed by the hand and helps to relieve stress and tension. As well as this, it is used to exercise the muscles in the hand. Stress toys are the third most popular promotional gift in the UK, as they are used by everyone and are a 'novelty' gift, something you wouldn't necessarily buy for yourself. 

The Bendy Pencil on our website also has a low unit cost. Pencils have been used since the discovery of graphite deposit in the 16th Century. It was later in this Century that the wood holders for the graphite were invented by an Italian couple. The early pencil was flat packed and more compact with the technique being to hollow our juniper wood and insert graphite inside.

If you are targeting children, then our colouring books are a 'must have;. Colouring books were first created in the United States after inspiration from a British artist, Joshua Reynolds. Many educators believed that art education was beneficial to all students, regardless of their background. The McLoughlin Brothers are credited with the creation of the colouring book in the 1880s as they produced The Little Folks' Painting Book. They continued to create colouring books right through until the 1920s. 

Finally, message bugs are another popular promotional item. Although perhaps not quite so useful, they are a really good novelty item. Logo bugs come in hundreds of different styles meaning you can choose the colours and branding to fit your business. 

If you are working to a tight budget, there are lots of low-cost promotional products you can choose from on our website.
