Summertime is brilliant! It brings us Brits out to play, enjoying the warm weather (well, some of the time!), picnics in the park, back garden barbecues, festivals, lazy afternoons in the park, days at the seaside, and last but not least—summer holidays!
We could carry on all day about why summer’s brilliant, but for you, the important takeaway is that as people emerge from their shells to socialise and get out and about, they take your summer promotional merchandise with them! And that means summer is also a brilliant time to get your brand in front of existing customers and new, potential customers too, as they mingle with friends and family and attend summer events.
If you’re attending outdoor events or sporting events, or running a campaign over the summer, you’ll need to find the perfect promotional giveaways to boost your brand. Luckily, we have everything you need!
We’ve come up with plenty of ideas for great summer promotional products that will heat up your summer campaigns, making your customers warm to you and brightening up their day (OK, enough summer puns. We’ll stop now!).
Boost Your Brand on the Beach
You want your logo to be BIG. You want your brand colours to be SEEN. So can you think of a better way to do this on a beach—or anywhere outdoors—than by having them emblazoned on a giant beach ball?
Our branded inflatable beach balls are a great way to get your brand image seen during summer, and they’ll also bring the fun! Just seconds after handing out a few of these at an outdoor event, you can guarantee that recipients will be having a laugh as they throw or kick them about, attracting the attention of everyone else and making them all want one!
These beach balls are available in either solid coloured panels or alternate white and coloured panels, and a wide variety of colours, so that you can choose the palette that matches your brand.
Beach balls aren’t the only thing we think of when we think about fun at the seaside. You can’t go to the beach without having a stick of rock! Make sure people are enjoying your sticks of rock. Our promotional sticks of rock have a branded label and your company name running right through the stick, so that customers or stall visitors are reminded of you with every bite!
Parklife – a Perfect Branding Opportunity
There’s nothing like a family trip the park, with a picnic and a few games. No trip to the park is complete without a frisbee, and our Skyspinner™ flying disc will be an appreciated and well-used giveaway! It’s UK/EU toy safety certificated, comes in a range of colours and can be printed with your logo on the top. It’s also eco-friendly, as it’s fully recyclable and ultimately biodegradable. Whether they’re catching it or dodging it as it zooms past, people will notice your brand printed on this frisbee!
Whether the sun stays out or the clouds move in, our branded golf umbrella will be really useful to keep your clients shaded or dry – and with a diameter of 1.3m, it provides a big, bold way to advertise your brand. With auto-opening and a storm-proof fibreglass stem and frame, this is an impressive, eye-catching, high-quality promotional product available in 50 panel colours.
Picnics are great, but nobody wants lukewarm drinks or snacks. Our Tonbridge lunch cooler bag is a great promotional product that will be really appreciated by recipients on hot summer days, helping to keep their lunch cool and crisp! Available in black, blue or white, it can be branded with your logo and features a foil-lined interior, a front pocket for quick access items and a large adjustable carry handle.
Brand Up Those Summer Event Essentials
Make festival goers a walking billboard for your brand with this selection of summer promotional items. First up are our ever-popular promotional t-shirts in a variety of styles and sizes. Our branded Fruit Of The Loom t-shirts, available in original, ladies fit or children’s fit, are produced using fine-gauge Belcoro® yarn for a cleaner print and have a large print area just waiting for your company logo.
Festival goers tend to take a lot of pictures on their mobile—and that eats up their phone charge. Give clients and potential customers a reason to thank you by giving away branded powerbanks, like this Hydra powerbank, available in 8 colours and engraved with your logo or brand name. Useful branded tech like this will be taken everywhere your clients go in the summer, whether they’re on holiday, a camping trip or just on a day out—and that means they’ll be showing off your brand wherever they are.

With an impressive 15000 rpm motor, yet weighing just 16g, not only will it help keep people cool, it will also make your brand look cool at the same time!
Summer marketing gift ideas for kids
Children can get bored in the summer if they’re travelling—or at a loose end while their parents relax in the sun! Children’s gifts or activity packs make great promotional summer giveaways. Our branded children’s activity pack includes an A5 colouring booklet, 4 colouring pencils, an A7 sheet of stickers and a foam animal puzzle to keep them busy, all in a handy, biodegradable carrier bag.
