Inspirational Kickstarters for Summer-Themed Company Promotional Items

Summer’s just around the corner. You know what that means – it’s high time to get in gear with company promotional items that fit the lifestyle.

Quit giving boring branded items that end up at the bottom of briefcases and lost in the shuffle of a junk drawer. Give something they’ll use this summer, and take some inspiration to get started with this guide.


Truth is, sunglasses make great company promotional items at any time of year, but they’re more likely to get used in the summer.

They can be fairly affordable, they’re lightweight and easy to transport and don’t take up a lot of space, which makes them great for trade shows and traveling, too.

Some notes: polarized glasses are better than non-polarized glasses because they cut glare. Other than that, customize a good brand. We offer Ray-Ban, Oakley and more here!

Beach Towels

Beach towels can be a great company promotional item that offers a lot of value. Everyone needs them for the beach cart, so why not give them one that has your brand on it?

Plus, beach towels also have other uses off the beach, too, making them truly versatile corporate gifts. (We also sell stadium blankets and golf towels, too, which also make good branded promotional items.)


Coolers also make highly practical and utilitarian gifts, branded or not. We just make that possible! Anglers, campers, backyard grillmasters, beachgoers, they all use them, and we carry the top brands, from YETI to Pelican, Igloo, and Coleman.

You can get creative with coolers as corporate gifts, too, since we don’t just offer hard sided coolers. We offer a wide range of portable coolers in convenient sizes, as well as soft-sided cooler bags and lunch bags. We even sell Igloo Kooltunes coolers that have built-in speakers.

Travel Duffels

Summer is the season when most people tend to travel for leisure, making travel duffels great summer gifts. We carry travel duffels from the top brands, including but not limited to OGIO, Pelican, High Sierra, and RuMe, too.

If you’re looking for something smaller and easier to give out, we sell a wide range of other luggage accessories, too.

Stainless Steel Can Insulators

Affordable, convenient, and easy to give out, can insulators, like the Colsters made by YETI, are great summertime gifts. We all have a favorite summertime drink, and whether it’s a coke or something sudsier, one of these insulators will keep it colder and fresher for longer.

All you need to do first is customize them! (Also, we carry koozies and other drinkware and accessories, too.)

Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottles

It’s getting increasingly trendy to carry a water bottle like a Stanley Cup, but there are other great options, and in the summer, it’s just as important to stay hydrated, if not more so. Customize these with your brand or logo, give them out at the next convention or trade show your organization attends, and spread awareness with branded corporate gifts that will actually get used!

Branded Grills

While these might be a little bit more expensive to give out, if you have an occasion for it, they make some of the best summer-themed gifts on our whole website.

What says “summer” like a grill, anyway? And, you can customize both portable gas and charcoal grills from the top brands here.

Thinking a grill itself might be a bit too over the top? That’s fine too – just shop our wide selection of grill tools and other grilling accessories (same link, above). They all make excellent summer-themed company promotional products that are very likely to be appreciated and used.

Branded Pickleball Sets

Lots of people love to play pickleball in the summer, and we don’t just sell customizable pickleballs, but whole pickleball sets. They make great gifts and will definitely increase your brand exposure.

But remember, this guide is just a jumping off point to serve as inspiration. The point is that people play games outside in the summer. It doesn’t have to be pickleball – it could be disc golf, cornhole, pong, or even some other game!

Mosquito Repelling Lanterns

These mosquito repelling lanterns are actually really unique company promotional items we sell here that make a pretty strong case for themselves in the summer. Whether you’re outside on the bay, the beach, the campsite, or just grilling in the yard, mosquitos can be the bane of life in the hotter months of the year.

These surprisingly affordable lanterns are made of tough ABS plastic, throw plenty of ambient light, have a convenient hanging hook, and feature a 2000V shocker to dispatch any intrepid mosquitoes that get too near.

BioLite Solar Panel Chargers

Another great summer-themed gift for anyone that spends time outside in the summer, these BioLite Solar Panel Chargers can take your batteries from dead to charged with nothing more than a little help from the sun.

They’re made of tough ABS, are ultra-slim and portable, and feature an integrated 3200 mAh battery so you can keep devices charged as needed.

Portable Outdoor Speakers

Last but not least, outdoor speakers make great branded summertime gifts. There isn’t one single speaker that has a monopoly on the market, and we sell great options from RUPT, Skullcandy, JBL, and so much more.

As a general rule, though, look for a powerful bluetooth speaker that offers lots of playback time, and one that is waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof – they’re better for outdoor living.
