Heat Up Company Picnics With Promotional Products

picnic promotional items

Company picnics are a summer tradition for many businesses—55 percent hosted one in 2011, according to a study by the Society for Human Resource Management.

With summertime in full swing, it’s a great time to treat your staff to a company picnic. But don’t let your company-wide bash fall flat—ramp up the fun with promotional products.

There are many ways to use promotional items at your company picnic. Use logo items …

At check-in. When employees arrive to your company picnic, greet them with a logo item they can use throughout the day such as custom sunscreen or a custom backpack.

To differentiate teams. Promotional products such as custom t-shirts or custom caps can get teams of employees geared up for softball games, scavenger hunts or other team activities.

As door prizes. Promotional products are perfect prizes for everyone’s favorite game, “Dunk the CEO.” Or, you know, whatever game or contest works for your group.

During activities. Fill custom balloons with water and let your staffers have at ’em. Cap off the activity with logo beach towels.

At the buffet line. Whatever’s on the menu at your company picnic, mealtime is a prime time for promotional products. Rather than disposable cups, give employees custom drinkware they can use back at the office. Logo napkins and custom coasters are also nice additions.

Company picnics are a great way to show employee appreciation, and promotional products help make your event both memorable and fun.

Promo know-how tip: Don’t forget promotional items for kids if your company picnic is open to families. Promotional kites or custom Frisbees are perfect for youngsters to enjoy some outdoor fun.
