Top 40 Branded Swag Ideas For Summer 

We are all looking for connection this summer and swag is the perfect way to do that! People are traveling and moving around, you want to make sure they still remember you through the summer. It’s also a great time to bring people together and share memories with. We see a lot of customers do annual cookouts with their teams or plan client retreats. Whatever the case maybe branded summer swag has some amazing options to really help connect. We showcase the top 40 summer swag for your corporate gifting needs!

What Makes Branded Summer Swag Good 

When people think branded swag you may think just slapping a logo on an item, but it’s more than that. Summer swag is the perfect time to send employees gifts for their kids, send some fun activities for clients or maybe hand out some new swag for the summer fridays. After hibernating the winter months, summer is when people seek connection the most. It’s a perfect time for brands to engage with their teams or customers to bring them together. Branded merch is a nice compliment to any employee engagement activity or fun way to promote new launch to your customer. Here are a few tips we see work well for branded summer swag

Custom Swag For Activities 

You will see in our list a few options that promote being active. The weather calls for it and its also a nice way to boost employees to move around, especially for those remote workers. If you are sending for customers it might be a nice way to invite them to an activity with you. This further creates a good bond and connection. 

Branded Gifts Family 

A lot people working remote have to juggle having the kids at home during the summer. Sending some fun activities for the kids or pets is a really nice touch if you are looking to create a more meaningful bond with your clients and team. It also shows you really know them since the custom gift is extending beyond them. 

Custom Summer Designs 

We see a lot of our customers use some fun summer branding like adding a watermelon or popsicle to their logos. This just makes things fun for anyone receiving the swag. It also sets a theme and will increase the likelihood of people using the swag. Sometimes just doing something more eye catching is better than just a plain logo.
