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:
No matter how much time has passed, you’ll always remember the name of your favorite teacher. This week is #TeacherAppreciationWeek, a week where all teachers near and far deserve to be recognized for all of their hard work throughout the year (no matter if it’s in-person or distance-learning!).
One gift they would carry around wherever they go is a custom-printed travel tumbler. Take your pick from any of these, you can’t go wrong!
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:
How many days a week do you get takeout for lunch?
How often do you pack your lunch?
Getting takeout is definitely the easier option- no meal prep or planning required, no dishes to do later, and more choices. But it is more expensive, and can definitely tempt you to eat foods that you should probably avoid.
Today is #PackYourLunchDay, a day where you can take the first step towards packing your lunch on a more regular basis, and becoming more mindful about what you eat. Once you start prepping your own meals, it is so easy to eat healthier.
Some easy things to pack beyond the boring ol’ sandwich:
Endless types of salads- pack them full of protein!
Rice/grain bowls- add protein and veggies
Soups & stews
Here are the necessary travel tumblers and Thermos items to help pack your yummy lunch:
For Your Food- keeps it hot for up to 9 hrs or cold up to 14 hrs & comes with a built-in spoon!
For Your Water-
For your post-lunch caffeine break- keeps drinks hot for 7 hours-
Active business people spend time at the office, and time driving to appointments. Wherever you are, you want your fresh water to keep yourself healthy and properly hydrated. Thermos® has the ideal water pal for you. It is leakproof, so you don’t ruin your laptop. This Thermos water bottle keeps your water pleasingly cold for up to 12 hours, because of its vacuum technology. Since there is no glass involved, it is unbreakable. Your table and valuable paperwork won’t suffer from bottle sweat, because there is none. For added safety, the top remains closed until you press the button to drink. The large capacity is 18 ounces, and it is designed to fit in most car cup holders.
The thermos bottle was a ground-breaking invention of Sir James Dewar in 1892. He was an Oxford University scientist. His invention was bought in 1907 by three companies around the world. Since then, Thermos has been a household name. The companies have undergone numerous sales and acquisitions, even as late as 1997. One thing has remained constant over the years.. the quality of a useful everyday consumer product. The original Thermos water bottle used a vacuum in a glass insert. Now the vacuum is held by a double wall stainless steel container. Stainless steel is more durable than glass.
Here are 2 Thermos products you might not be aware of.
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.
