Holiday gift-giving is already in full swing. Here’s a selection of popular, high-end swag recommended by planners.
As we swing into the holiday season, planners on Facebook’s National Meeting Planners Group have been sharing their recommendations for high end swag. Sunglasses, albeit not seasonal, were the most frequently mentioned gift. “You can never have too many sunglasses,” was a repeated phrase.
Here are some of the planners’ specific swag recommendations. All have corporate gifting programs.
Laudi Vidni, a new entrant to the incentive market, custom-creates leather pocketbooks, toiletry and cosmetic bags, and other accessories in rich, elegant colors and a variety of styles. The recipient can choose the leather (leather swatches are free), interior and even hardware for his or her own look. Made in the USA, in Chicago.
Maui Jim sunglasses were mentioned by several planners as enduringly popular swag. The company logo can be printed on the case and on the cleaning cloth.
Uncommon Goods was recommended for having unique gift ideas, some customizable. It was also cited as a way to help support small businesses.
Coach leather goods are always well-received swag; leather totes and crossbody bags for women and briefcases or messenger bags for men were recommended. They can be packaged in a branded box. Planner tip: shop the online outlet if the budget is tight.
Cashmere Counter is the place to go for an assortment of luxurious and seasonally appropriate wraps, scarves, etc. Planners recommend “awesome travel sets” that include a cashmere throw, socks, and eye pad. The company logo can be embroidered on the cashmere gift bag.
UnHide faux fur, eco-conscious blankets are super soft and perfect for year-end swag. Orders of 25 or more can be customized.
Yeti products such as soft coolers and drink ware that can be customized with company logos got multiple recommendations as winning swag.
Ember mugs, said to be the world’s first temperature controlled mug, can be company-branded for 24 orders or more, and planners will receive a digital preview of artwork or logo for approval.
