2018 Trends in promotional gifts

Unique Promotional Gifts
Rather than wait until the end of the year to reveal trends in promotional gifting, we thought we’d dig out the stats so as to help you make the right decision for your corporate branding strategy now. Here are the top trends we are seeing so far this year.


Health and wellness is a massively growing category for us here at Creative Brands. From encouraging your team to bring in more healthy lunches to watching that step counter, we’re pleased to be able to range some epic health and wellness kit - and we’re able to print your name and logo on each and every item. A few of our favourites:
We all know we should drink more water! Made from BPA-free plastic, take this bottle to work or give it to our best clients - it allows you to infuse flavours and add a twist to your daily water intake. Fresh mint, lemongrass, tea or fresh fruit, this reusable bottle is a hot ticket item for any office or promo event. 
Old tupperwares with lids that go AWOL are now a thing of the past. Whether it’s for your oats, salad, fruits or smoothies, this container not only streamlines your food storage but also keeps it super fresh. Additionally, you can keep sauces separate and have your own fork at all times.
 Measurable fitness is one of the hottest trends out there. Sync up these fitness watches with your smartphone or other device to track your steps, heart rate, calories and more. Brand them with your company logo and bring the whole team onboard!


Who doesn’t love tech kit? With more millenials moving into the workspace, putting your brand on high-quality, high-tech items ensures you are bang on trend. Do your research but seriously consider tech kit for your end-of-year client gifts. These come recommended:
What could be more useful than a power bank and a USB in one set? Ideal for an in-house award or even as part of a bigger, branded package, we can easily engrave your company logo onto each for a sophisticated promotional gift. 
Available in an assortment of colours, your business will certainly bring the beat by putting your name on these Bluetooth speakers. Portable, affordable and compatible with a range of devices, your brand can now literally speak volumes. 
Aside from your phone and perhaps your car keys, your work bag is probably your most used item. Therefore, it should be of sound quality, durability and look professional. By branding these backpacks with your name, you can easily tick all the boxes.  


We all want to move away from clutter and we’re finding more and more, that the best promotional gifts are often the most useful. Plus, when it’s an item that is used daily, your brand remains top of mind. Bingo. Here are a few of our suggestions:
Now, this is not just a jacket. This winter warmer allows you to listen to your favourite songs through the handy earphone outlet. Dress your team in these jackets for winter, complete with your brand to ensure a stylish and toasty workforce. 
Giving away branded notebooks as part of a promotion certainly ensures your brand’s visibility. You can also use them as employee stationery - company colours and all.
As the world takes a closer look at how we interact with the environment, you can now become part of the solution, easily. Spill-proof, brandable and available in a wide range of colours, this reusable coffee mug ensures a greener solution for all of our coffee habits.
