Why are company branded reusable water bottles great corporate gifts? 

Firstly, it’s essential for all businesses, big or small, to adopt social-environmental responsibility. That means taking responsibility for your company’s environmental footprint. So, giving a branded gift that replaces the need for single-use plastic bottles is an effective way to reinforce your company’s environmental policies.

Secondly, reusable water bottles are useful, appropriate for people of any demographic, and relatively inexpensive - meaning that even small businesses and new start-ups can afford to give branded gifts.

To help you understand the purpose of branded corporate gifts and the ins and outs of ordering branded gifts, FLASKE has put together this post with the answers to some of your common questions. 

Common Questions About Branded Gifts

What are the best branded gifts?

The best branded gifts for staff, clients, customers, and so on all have two things in common. They’re useful on a day-to-day basis and they bear your company name or logo. Printing your logo on branded gifts is essential because it will help spread your company name and raise awareness of your business.

However, if you give something that the recipient can’t use regularly, you won’t be able to spread your brand name to the same extent. Additionally, pointless gifts are rarely appreciated by the receiver. Something durable and practical, like a stainless-steel water bottle or coffee cup, makes the perfect branded gift.

Are branded corporate gifts effective for advertising?

Absolutely! Branded corporate gifts are a fantastic way for you to get your name out there. Sending out useful gifts with your company branding will already put your business at the forefront of the recipient’s mind. But you will also benefit from free advertising when they use your branded gifts in public.

Giving branded corporate gifts one of the most cost-effective ways of advertising!

I haven’t used branded gifts before, where should I start?

Firstly, consider who your target market is and what gift they would appreciate. Are you sponsoring a sporting event? What’s the age range of your customers? Would something fun and quirky suit your target market better than a practical branded gift?

If you’re choosing from FLASKE’s products, consider whether a water bottle, travel coffee cup, or insulated food pot would be more appropriate. Also, consider which size, colour, or design would best reflect your business or customers. You may want to start with a small order and test customer responses before investing large sums.
