Summer Merchandise Inspiration – Innovative Ideas for Every Occasion

With summer on the way, it’s a great time to think about seasonal merchandise.

From parties and events to gifts or incentives, there is something for everyone and every budget. And there are plenty of innovative and sustainable products available to meet your company values too.

So, whether you want to reward your teams, surprise your clients or celebrate Pride, then read on for some summer ideas and inspiration.

Supporting Pride

If you are thinking about summer merchandise, then why not start with a celebration of Pride?

Merchandise can be a great way to visibly show support for the LGBTQ+ community, not only during the designated month of June, but all year round. There is a whole range of Pride themed office staples, from lanyards through to stationery, mugs or water bottles. Or how about a sweat treat or two? Perhaps branded packets of rainbow berries or belts, lollipops or a stick of rainbow rock? Or what about a teatime pick me up, such as iced biscuits, cupcakes or cake jars. You could even pick a few items and create your own Pride goody bag with our themed totes.

There’s plenty to choose from so take a look at our recent video for more inspiration or give us a call.

The great outdoors

As the temperature starts to rise and the evenings draw out, we all love to get outside and enjoy the weather. When it comes to merchandise, there are plenty of useful or fun products that can help keep your brand front and centre, whilst your teams or clients make the most of the sunshine.

With picnics on the agenda, how about a cooler bag. Forget those eighties ice boxes, cool bags have got a whole lot cooler, with a wide range of options and styles, from individual lunch bags to large, insulated totes, backpacks or even a bag designed to fit a sixpack of cans to help keep your favourite soft drink or tipple ice cold. Add in a large choice of colours, branding options and materials, including sustainable options (even woven paper), and you can see why cooler bags are definitely one of our favourite branded summer gifts this year.

For summer fun, there are plenty of sporting goodies too, from frisbees to footballs, and we can help you tick off the practical items as well, from picnic rugs to hand sanitiser, or a handbag (or pocket sized) small recyclable stick or aluminium jar of sunblock. Made in the UK, it’s water resistant, fragrance free, non-greasy and great for sensitive areas such as lips, ears or noses. Just add your branding to the label on the screw top lid and you’re ready for any surprise sunny days.

Travelling companions

With many people planning some sort of getaway over the summer months, travel essentials and handy accessories can help spread your brand messaging far and wide. And even help alleviate travel woes.

Lost luggage is never a good start to any trip, so think about secure luggage tags, padlocks or even branded AirTags or MiTags to help track down anything that should go astray.

Tech accessories are always super useful, and we have everything from chargers and adaptors to a very handy travel ready alarm clock. This definitely chimed with the whole team as we don’t always want to have our phones next to the bed. Made from recycled aluminium, this compact travel companion features Bluetooth connectivity to keep your time and temperature up to date, wherever you may be – and it also features a handy wireless charger.

Alternatively, you could go for some practical or fun extras, from beach towels to beach balls, or flip flops to sun hats or even ear plugs.

Party time

Whether you’re planning a team building session, a summer party, a fun day or a social get together, here’s a few ideas to help make your event more memorable for all the right reasons.

We know that the British weather doesn’t always play ball, but we’ve got you covered with a range of branded gazebos. Then think about your decorations from balloons to bunting or flags to table covers.

And our absolute favourite item for outdoor events is the branded deckchair. Available in a standard or supersized version, they make a practical and eye-catching addition, that is just ready to be snapped and featured on all your social feeds.

Food glorious food (and drink)

Whether you are planning for picnics or parties, then branded edibles or drinkables are another opportunity to make your mark.

We’re big fans of these branded beer and cider cans. Choose between beer, cider or an IPA that’s brewed in the UK and is both vegan friendly and gluten free. Or why not add a special touch to cocktails or mocktails with edible logo toppers? Again, these are vegan friendly and gluten free.

Branded cupcakes are always a popular people pleaser, but how about logo topped doughnuts, millionaires shortbread, brownies or biscuits? Or help your guests keep their cool with some custom ice cream tubs.

And don’t forget those handy picnic extras from drinkware to keyring bottle openers.
