While many people work indoors in offices during the spring and summer months, most of these employees could benefit from a little time outside. Even a 15 minute walking break can be a great way to refresh the mind and body after a long morning, and it is not uncommon for an office to be empty around lunchtime for this reason. A small business looking to distribute promotional products to its employees might consider an outdoor promotional giveaway to capitalize on fair weather.
Promotional items geared toward the summer will work the best in this scenario, but there are a few steps business owners should take before giving out these gifts. First, they might consider an exercise-themed giveaway. Employees love to work for companies who care about physical fitness, and what better excuse to go outside than for a 30-minute calisthenics session?
Second, a friendly competition can be organized between staff members, and the victors can receive their pick of promotional prizes. For example, whoever runs a mile the fastest can receive either custom coffee mugs or wall calendars.
Finally, all promotional products should be appropriate for outdoor activities – frisbees, umbrellas and other items that can be used outside are the only things that should be handed out.
