A-Z of Advertising Promotional Item Ideas by Industry

Selecting the right advertising promotional item is no easy task. Choosing a product that’s related to what you do will narrow your search, with the added advantage that your name will be associated with your particular industry. Use our quick A-Z with ideas and suggestions specifically for your sector.

Automotive

We supply a range of motoring accessories perfect for manufacturers, dealers, garages, and parts wholesalers. Including tax disk holders, ice scrapers, air fresheners, tyre pressure gauge, key rings, breakdown kits and parking gadgets and banners.


Building/contractors

Novelty stress hard hats, tape measure key rings, mini tool kits, and laser pointers make good promo items for contractors. Or choose a chunky builders coffee mug with your logo and contact details in bold. 

Business services

Pens, calendars, notepads, diaries, screen cleaners are all useful items to have around the office. Always choose a good quality gift so it’s kept for longer, achieving the best possible ROI.
 

Computer/electronics

USB sticks are voted the advertising promotional item people most want to receive. SD card readers, USB hubs, mouse mats, and computer cleaners are good alternatives. 

Design

Go for something novel - our Bendy Clocks are rubber figures you can bend, Robo Pen unfolds mechanically and our light bulb keyring with branded tag will show you’re an ideas company.

Education

A USB flash drive is useful for storing info; a moleskin style notebook is ideal for quick notes; document folders and bags are perfect for training courses.

Fashion/jewellery

Our silicone wristbands and watches make colourful, fun promo products. We offer competitively priced cosmetic purses, or satchel-style bags with pocket and velcro close.
 

Finance

Traditional gifts like leather notebooks, diaries, pens and umbrellas work well in finance. Choose printed wallets for the storage of important documents, or credit card calculators with your logo, or perhaps a stylish iPad or tablet cover with an embossed logo or even your design printed full colour.

Health/beauty

Personal care products like manicure sets, hair brushes, toiletries and lip balm make ideal advertising promotional items. We also stock massagers, compact mirrors, pill boxes, and first aid kits.
 

Home-ware/furnishings

Branded electronic candles and stylish mugs make the perfect giveaway items for your industry. More sophisticated gifts include our European Desk Calendar for the home office, or our stylish Design Clock for the wall or desk.

Hospitality

For bars and restaurants we can produce coasters, lighters, tumblers, tankards, shot glasses, and champagne flutes. For hotels, cosy slippers, bathrobes and back massagers will ensure your guests have a relaxing stay.
 

Real estate

We sell house-shaped coasters, memo pads, keyrings, stress balls, fridge magnets, mousemats, umbrellas and money boxes, ideal as advertising promotional items for estate agencies.

Retail

A wide range of shopping bags are available, but remember that high quality totes in materials such as jute, cotton and non-woven polypropylene, become bags for life - so your name is splashed around the high street for much longer. Trolley token key rings are a great giveaway item too.


Sports/leisure

A woven drawstring bag is inexpensive and ideal to take to the gym, spend a little extra on pedometers that measure progress, or make a statement with branded plastic or metal drinks bottles.

Telecommunications

Communications related items include our smart phone screen cleaner, phone holders and stands, styluses, pocket radios, USB hubs and flash drives.

Toys/games/children

Select from balloons, animal logobugs, yo-yos, foam gliders, travel games, hand clappers, soft toys, juggling balls or novelty key rings.
 

Travel

Luggage labels and tags are available from budget polythene to luxury leather.  Other travel related items include passport holders, travel wallets, World travel adaptors, neck pillows, beach balls and aeroplane key rings.

Transport

A lorry or van-shaped advertising promotional item, like a key ring, notepad, coaster, ruler or stress ball will immediately show potential clients that you can deliver.
 

Other considerations

As well as the sector you’re in, you should also consider what company values you would like your advertising promotional item to portray. If you’re a long-established business choose something traditional to reflect this. If you pride yourself on your ethical policies, pick a product made from recycled materials. If you’re high-class or exclusive choose something select. 

The golden rule is to buy for your audience…ask yourself: What would a typical customer like to receive?  What would they find useful? Will they be able to use it frequently? Can they use it over a long time period?
