Unusual Swag: Unbox the Weird and Wonderful
Think outside the box. Be creative. You’ve heard it all before. You know you need to but how?!
You’ve gotta go big or bold if you want to make an impact, but launching a branded merch campaign can be overwhelming when you’re at a loss for ideas. We combed hundreds of items to find the weirdest, wildest, and most wow-worthy products you can brand for your business, so you don’t have to. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be inspired.
Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of swag.
Vinyl Record Coasters
It’s the vinyl countdown! Maximalist décor is taking over social, and if you haven’t seen it, a quick TikTok search will flood your feed with elaborately designed rooms filled with incredible and creative home décor pieces. These vinyl record coasters are perfect if you’re looking for cool, creative and budget-friendly merch items. It comes with a non-slip ring on the bottom, and one side can be imprinted with a full-colour logo or design.
Dip Trip™ Sauce Holder
Dip it, Dip it Real Good. Bid farewell to the dry fry. The Dip Trip clips onto a vehicle’s air vent, providing a vessel for on-the-go sauces—ranch, please! Adorn the front with a full-colour epoxy label for delicious brand exposure. These are fantastic for our friends in the transportation industry or any business where commutes are part of everyday life.
3D View Master & Photo Reel
Here’s your daily dose of nostalgia! The 3D Viewmaster brings back a childhood classic with a custom twist. This promo piece comes with a viewfinder and a custom film roll with space for 7 images of your choosing. This is a super interactive item to use at tradeshows, events or as a fun giveaway for families.
A good business should be (drone)ing in brand awareness! So why not take your brand to new heights with this super unique drone. It uses a wifi connection and an app to capture photos and videos you can save to your smartphone. Of course, there’s space on the top for a full-colour logo!
Steel Fire Pit
Want to smoke out the competition? Go big, bold and bonfire with this steel fire pit. An item of this magnitude is excellent for long-service recognition, retirement celebrations, milestone achievements, or even as a giveaway grand prize. Screenprint your logo on the side for added fire!
Zen thousand grains of sand = Zen thousand impressions. Our math might be off, but our point remains the same. Merch that promotes rest and relaxation is all the rage, and this Zen garden—with your engraved logo on the wood frame—will promote your company culture and make a great office addition.
Keep it cool with this 80-quart rolling cooler that can hold up to 80 12-ounce cans or a host of tasty snacks and bottles! It comes in three colours—red, black and white—and you can do a full wrap around the cooler for added customization.
I want to break free...I want to break free! This song has been stuck in our heads and will be stuck in yours, too, if you brand the Breakaway Speaker. This Bluetooth speaker can be segmented into two to create a surround sound experience. This luxury item even comes in a box that splits down the middle, creating a wow-worthy unboxing experience. Logo the sides of the speaker to boost your brand.
In today’s age, we’re all trying to be kinder to mother nature and make better choices for our own health. PowerClean is a portable, battery-powered spray bottle that converts table salt and tap water into a powerful cleaning solution with the power of bleach and without all the toxic chemicals. It’s like having a little chemist in your pocket or purse! Put your logo directly on the device, and add a custom sleeve to take it to the next level.
Music Beat Activated String Lights
Stay *NSYNC with these beat-activated string lights. Decorate your space with the string lights and place your music source near the battery pack. It will pick up the beats and sync with the song. Imprint the battery pack with your colour logo and give the gift of good vibes.
