Promotional Gifts for Summer Events

June 2, 2022 Scott Gillis

Summer is here and we are all excited for the warmer days and longer sun filled nights. Warmer weather means more time spent outdoors with family and friends. What a great time to capture your company's message than with some branded summer-themed gifts.
Keep in mind a key statistic about workplace employee engagement during the summer: "Workplace productivity drops 20% and projects take 13% longer to complete." ( Source). So how do we mitigate a statistic like this? Look to your corporate culture and do the little things to keep the embers of engagement burning all summer long. Momentum is key. Set the expectation that there is still highly important work to get done. Keep employees engaged and focused by scheduling fun months long events off site or in the office. You can also find unique gifts to maintain the habit of appreciation and thanks.


Branding your company’s logo or message on outdoor-related gifts is practical, and your staff will surely appreciate the functionality. What better way to celebrate than gifting your employees with all their summer necessities! Giving gifts to your stand out team as a token of gratitude is a generations-old tradition. With company BBQs, outdoor movie nights, softball games, and corporate picnics coming up we have the hottest Summer products to choose from.
