It seems as though there has been a lot of emphasis on “swag bags” as of late. From the swag bags that celebrities get for showing up at promotional events and openings, to free swag you can pick up in stores and conferences, everyone loves a good selection of swag. But what are the most coveted swag items out there? What are the items that people most enjoy getting in those bags?
Here we’ll take a look at some of the best swag giveaways – best branded promotional items out there that you will want to scoop up if you get a chance. If you happen to be a business owner, this will also give you some ideas at what you could use as branded giveaways to customers.
What is a Swag Bag?
Before we take a look at the most coveted swag items out there, it’s a good idea to set the record straight on what a swag bag is. A swag bag is a goodie bag of sorts that contains a number of items from sponsors. Typically, the items are branded with that company’s logo and information, thereby acting as a marketing tool. The items can be household items, tech items, or sample sizes of the company’s products. Even the bag itself counts as “swag” and is typically branded.
Appeal to the Smartphone Owners
One of the most popular swag items you’ll find in swag bags are charging ports. These items give companies a great opportunity to slap their logo on there, and because pretty much everyone has a smartphone, these prove to be very useful. The 3-in-1 charging ports are definitely the star of the show since they are compatible with Android, Apple, and Blackberry devices.
Power on the Go
Another popular item along the same lines as the charging port is a portable power bank that can be used with smartphones and tablets. This allows people to charge up their devices by plugging into this portable battery charger.
Traditional Yet Still Useful
Now when it comes to a more traditional approach to swag, you can’t go wrong with a great coffee mug or insulated drinkware. Again, companies have the opportunity to brand the item and you get a very useful cup that you can use on an everyday basis.
Unique Food Swag
Another popular item when it comes to swag is food. It doesn’t matter if the company produces the item or not, food is one of those things that people love to scoop up. What makes this even more appealing is if it’s a unique item such as an artisan or gourmet item.
Get On-Board with Swag
So the next time you head to a conference, seminar, trade show, or even market, be sure to be on the lookout for free swag as you will typically end up going home with all kinds of useful and cool items. And from the business-owner’s standpoint, there is no better way to engage with your audience than with free stuff.
