In this article

Are you looking for that perfect holiday swag gift for teams or clients? No need to sweat it; we got you! 

We're here to break down the top trending swag ideas perfect for any corporate holiday gift. Our team is committed to showing the best swag ideas that will be a hit! 

First, here are some tips to make your ultimate holiday swag successful!

  1. Plan early. I know it's hard to even think about early holidays, but let's be honest, they sneak up on you! Planning allows you to get ahead of the supply chain issues and find some deals at this point since summers are traditionally slower. 
  2. Understand your audience. Understand who you are giving these holiday swag gifts. If the majority are international, stay away from food as it won't make it to them. If your clients or teams work from home, pick an item they can use at home. Knowing who you're swag shopping for will help narrow some ideas. 
  3. Collecting addresses. It's a daunting task! But luckily, at SwagUp, we offer Redeem Pages to help collect addresses and sizes and even automate the shipments from there.
