If you are someone who is ready to celebrate National Camping Month, then June is your month!
Let’s be clear though; I don’t know the first thing about what you need to take on a camping trip! I’m not a fan of camping (no matter how many times my husband tries to convince me otherwise). I prefer to have running water, electricity, and a real bed.
Here are some must-haves (including a trustworthy Maglite Flashlight) that even a never-camper like me would suggest taking on your adventure:
Yeah, yeah, yeah… we’ve all been grumbling about wanting to get back to a normal life. But even though today is National Picnic Day, we can still have fun. Even the smallest of outdoor spaces-or just your living room- can accommodate a cozy little picnic. Here are the essential items and travel tumblers that you’ll need to have a celebratory picnic:
There’s been a lot of buzz lately about ditching single-use plastic straws for good. But have you ever tried the alternatives? Paper straws disintegrate within minutes of you taking your first sip. Glass and stainless steel straws can be pricey.
How about we just try skipping straws altogether? Any of these travel tumblers will easily help you and your customers make the switch today on #SkiptheStrawDay:
Do you like bubbly drinks? Do you like caffeine as well? Then today is your lucky day- it’s National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day. I bet you’re thinking the best drink to fill up your travel mug today is just some good ol’ soda, or perhaps a bubbly energy drink. But did you know that you can buy or make your own coffee soda?
A few companies out there make sparkling coffee, also called coffee soda. They’re basically just coffee infused with CO2, and perhaps a little sugar or citrus juice. Or you can do a little experiment at home today- mix 5 oz seltzer water, 2 oz espresso, and 2 oz of fresh OJ.
Whichever drink you choose today, don’t forget to put it in your trusty travel mug to get you from home to work, and all the places in between.
Promotional mugs come in a wide variety of styles, material, and colors today. When I started in the advertising specialty business 22 years ago, the coffee mug selection was rather boring. Mugs were available in…
Then along came promotional mugs in heavy plastic, stainless steel, rubber non-skid bottoms, vacuum insulated, and fancy non-drip closeable lids. Some are available with a combination of material and colors to match your corporate logo. Some companies, like Starline, rate their insulating abilities so you can compare one vacuum bottle with others. The higher the price, the better insulating ability it has. Of course, price is also determined by the size and the type of material.
Promotional mugs, travel mugs, coffee mugs, water bottles, and vacuum mugs all share these common qualities, which make them so popular.
APPRECIATED by your customers, contacts, and employees.
USEFUL. Mugs are so useful, that you might consider them a necessity.
PERPETUAL. Coffee and travel mugs last forever, unless of course you break one. But how hard is it to break stainless steel, ceramic, or heavy plastic?
A PERMANENT GOODWILL GESTURE. Every recipient remembers who gave them the water bottle or vacuum mug. How could they forget, since your logo is permanently imprinted right on it?
Camo is Cool. The number of Camo-Lovers is constantly increasing. Even people who never go to the woods like the look and feel of owning a camo-imprinted item. This Muskoka Fall™ Vacuum Water Bottle, SV98SS, will fit right into your collection of camo personalized pocket knives, camo backpack, hat, and jacket, multi-tools, and Mag-Lites.
That’s what I love about promotional mugs, and I hope you do, too. The never-ending changes in design and materials keeps this area of promotional advertising alive.
