Our favourite Promotional Products for Summer Events

Stuck on what to give to your staff or clients for your next summer event? Let me help you! We can help you find fun and engaging swag to leave a lasting impression this summer.  Here are some of the most common summer events we provide swag for our clients for as well as my top three favourite picks for each event.

A beach day can be so much fun, with carefree open air, gulls cawing, water lapping and sun shining down warming your skin… ahhh, this is summer.
A great opportunity to unplug and enjoy the company of your family, friends and team members. To protect your skin from the sun, be sure to check out these cool sublimated bucket hats! With crisp sublimated decoration, your brand will be sure to be the talk of the beach, while being on trend and stylish!
Keep your valuables, like your phone, keys, and wallet, dry with this 100% waterproof bag! Perfect to keep water (and that pesky sand) out!
And of course, what would a beach day be without a beach ball! A great inexpensive giveaway available in tons of fun colours to match with your branding to have on hand for loads of fun for summers to come.

Whether you’re going on a trip with your team, a client retreat, or your clients and team members just love to camp themselves, consider bringing or giving away some rustic, camper themed gifts to increase your impact and brand association!

The Camp Mug is a real classic piece to consider with its iron construction and speckled enamel finish, it is a great backdrop for your logo, and a great piece to enjoy hot cocoa, coffee, or a hot toddy around the fire!

And speaking of fire, roasting sticks are a useful and unique gift consisting of 4 extendable roasting sticks, perfect for s’mores or hotdogs (my personal favourite) over the fire! No more searching through the forest for the perfect marshmallow stick! Plus, they come in a super trendy pouch branded with your logo to keep them all neat and tidy!

And on your way to the tent for the night after your hot toddy and s’mores, use this combo lantern & flashlight  to help guide the way in the dark! Middle of the night trips to the washroom are all good with this multifunctional light, with a lantern function when pulled up, or use the button on the back and turn sideways to use as a flashlight!

Picnics are another popular summer event that can be improved with fun and relevant branded swag!
Set the stage with this beautiful picnic blanket, a water-resistant mat that is easily cleaned, folded and always ready to use! To serve up your picnic treats, consider these beautiful charcuterie boards that are made in Canada with hand poured resin accents, perfect to serve your picnic treats, cheeses, meats, fruits, even sandwiches!
And keep those beverages cool with the return of this absolutely iconic cooler from Igloo with its swing top lid and holding up to 30 cans, these are sure to be the talk of the picnic.


Everybody loves a good BBQ in the heat of the summer, eh? Getting the grill going, whether you’re a meat lover or veggie aficionado, a BBQ is a classic event for the summer, and we’ve got some awesome swag that can level up your next company grill session!
This BBQ gift set keeps the good times going even after the party is over. Including Canadian made BBQ sauce, spice rubs, BBQ brush, serving board, coasters, and bottle opener, this is the kit to give to ensure recipients are set up for success for their own personal BBQ at home.
Another item I love, which is quite nostalgic for me and really reminiscent of the BBQs of the 80s and 90s, are these retro folding chairs, perfect for sitting back, relaxing and swigging back your favourite brew! Brand with your logo for a great premium incentive or gift! And of course a BBQ staple, if you ask me, is lawn games! My favourite for the BBQ are these ring toss games, great to have for the event and also to give out at the end of the night for continued impressions and fun for the whole family!

Last, but certainly not least, the most common event in the summer we help our clients with is a golf tournament! Golf tournaments are a great way to get out in the sun and connect with clients and team members alike!

One of my favourite items to suggest for golf tournaments are embroidered caps. Keep those eyes shaded when you’re going for that birdie and your skin protected! My personal favourite hat for golfers is the Nike Swoosh Cap, available in 5 colour options and has moisture wicking, breathable fabric with stretch to it. It really is the perfect hat for male or female golfers. No need to worry about sizing because one size fits most!

Now, it can’t always be sunny, so for those unexpected downpours, be prepared with a branded golf umbrella! I love this one with an oversized 64” arc and fiberglass windproof construction, you and your golf buddies will be dry as a desert under its protection.

And if it does rain, be sure to keep those clubs and balls mud free with these microfiber, full colour trifold golf towels – a perfect accessory (and advertisement!) for the golf bag.
