Winter isn't coming – it's here. The Old Farmer's Almanac writes that December 21 is the earliest first day of winter since 1896. Accuweather predicts that the season will be particularly stormy, and many states will see above-average snowfall and below-average temperatures.
Some consumers aren't prepared for the new season and will be caught off guard by the cold weather. Small business owners can distribute unique promotional products to help their customers enjoy the chilly months. Branded items like flashlights and mugs can be great gifts for clients, and winter wear can be given to employees.
The Winter Solstice has the fewest daylight hours, and early sunsets are a regular part of the entire season. The sun usually sets before most employees' evening commute. Promotional flashlights can light the ways to your customers' homes. Patrons will appreciate having a small light to they can use to find their keys or watch their steps along dimly lit paths.
Alternatively, promotional mugs might be ideal tools for dealing with the winter weather. When colds winds start to blow, consumers frequently turn to warm beverages to stave off the chills. Branded mugs can help increase your company's visibility because your customers will be exposed to your logos every time they brew coffee or boil water for tea or cocoa.
The winter blues can hurt productivity in your business. If your workers are struggling to deal with the cold weather, they may have a hard time handling all of their regular responsibilities. Personalized business gifts geared toward coping with snow and frigid temperatures can help ensure that your employees keep warm and stay happy.
You can give mugs to your staffers, but you can also distribute thermoses instead. Some of your staffers may have long commutes and would appreciate being able to bring their hot beverages with them every morning. Emboss your employees' names on their travel mugs to demonstrate how much you care about their needs.
Consider giving some of your valued contributors winter wear from the Adler Collection. Scarves and gloves can be excellent presents for employees who aren't fond of the cold weather. Consider each recipient's needs before giving the gifts. An associate who commutes via public transportation might not appreciate a pair of driving gloves as much as someone who brings their car to work.
