As we gear up for the spring trade show season here at Crestline, great giveaways are top of mind. You can always go the classic route by decorating your table with branded pens like the Bic® Clic Stic®—and with the lowest cost per impressions of any item, it would be a smart move. But if you’re looking to shake things up this year, we’ve compiled a list of six out-of-the-box giveaways that are sure to be a hit.
EOS™ Smooth Sphere Lip Balm ($5.89-$3.90)
Lip balm is used by almost everyone, and the EOS™ brand is particularly well-known and well-liked. Research shows that promo products from recognizable retail brands resonate better with consumers, particularly with millenials.
Safe Guard RFID Card Sleeve ($1.19-$0.82)
With identity theft on the rise, this simple sleeve can be a real lifesaver of a giveaway. The RFID compliant, polyethylene material protects against digital data theft while still fitting neatly in any standard wallet.
Virtual Reality 3D Glasses ($4.12-$2.82)
Show off your technological prowess with one of the most trendy promo products available this season. Ideal for tech conferences and trade shows, these VR glasses accommodate most smartphones—and look pretty smart, too.
Evolve Wireless Earbuds ($11.62-$7.97)
These earbuds come in a convenient, colorful case that is easy for tradeshow travelers to stash and keep track of on trips. (Bonus: iPhone 7 carriers will appreciate that these earbuds allow them to simultaneously listen to music while charging their cell phone.)
Extreme Tritan Bottle ($4.98-$3.91)
Reliable, reusable water bottles are always in demand—and even more so when they are as stylish as this aesthetically-pleasing bottle design. It’s the perfect giveaway to entice athletes, outdoor enthusiast or anyone else on the go.
Yes, you heard us right: to really stand out try having rescue dogs available for adoption. While this “giveaway” involves a lot of coordination (you’ll need to work closely with a local animal shelter to ensure all dogs make it to good homes), it’s a guaranteed way to get all the tongues (and tails) wagging at your next trade show.
