The Most Wonderful Time of the Year?
Now that summer is beginning to wind down, let’s talk about what’s in store next—FALL! I pretty much like all seasons except winter (in North Dakota) but there is something about fall that just gets me the most excited. Yes, I do love summer and religiously spend all of my time off at the lake. But even so, I’m still slightly more of a fall lover. I mean, I obviously like fall because of the cute layered clothes, boots and Pumpkin Spice Lattes (just like any other Pinterest girl) but I also love it because it’s just such a fun time of year. School starts, football season begins, the air is brisk but comfortable, and the colors of the turning leaves makes you feel like you’re in a painting. It’s a beautiful thing!
So, sitting here dreaming about fall (and the cute new boots I need) got me thinking about all of you. There are tons of reasons to buy promotional products for summer and especially for the holiday season, but where does that leave poor ol’ autumn?! There are plenty of awesome uses and excuses for getting promotional items in the fall so I’ve complied a little list of my best ideas for you:
- NEW WARDROBE: Honestly, once the air starts to cool, I am all about layering sweaters, scarves and leggings. I don’t know about you but I want to wear all of those things all the time. Did you know we can embroider your company logo onto scarves and even those cute slouchy hats, ladies? Not to mention we can get you some really trendy and adorable cardigans, jackets, and sweaters to rep your company and stay cozy in. I know, amazeballs- right? And guys, there is nothing cooler than getting new woven shirts or jackets in fall colors to pair with your favorite khakis or dress pants. Think jewel tones: burgundy, cobalt, emerald and maybe even throw in some nice tan or browns. Check out these colors from last year’s fall season: http://promotingus.tumblr.com/post/32262032808/we-have-some-great-fall-layering-options-for-you. Trust me, you need to get yourself into the fall spirit by updating your wardrobe. And even better, we can help with that!
- TAILGATING: The next best thing since sliced bread has got to be football season. I don’t really care all that much about watching every single game on TV but I do love me some tailgating festivities and pre-gaming. Why not bring your all to the (football) field? Like this grill/cooler combo: http://pinterest.com/pin/271904896225303754/. You would be fan-tastic indeed if you brought one of those to your party. Besides that, we can get hook you up with some really sweet gear in your team’s colors or make your some killer custom-imprint coozies to give to all your fellow fan-friends! The possibilities are endless… you should probably go the whole 9 yards.
- HOMECOMING: So you wanna be the best float in the parade? We can get you there! Forget the boring old Tootsie Roll candy mix from Wal-Mart. No one even likes that stuff anyway. Instead, you should be throwing out some sweet headphones, message magnets, (see here: http://instagram.com/p/a1BhcjFdqH/) or even fun-flavored chapstick! Again, don’t limit yourself to the basic old bag of candy, let’s at least get your group some cleverly designed t-shirts to wear.
- PUMPKIN: You obviously need a brand new, super-awesome coffee mug to carry your Pumpkin Spice Latte in. Don’t drink coffee? Have some cider, dude. But anyway, fall is the season of pumpkin-flavored everything- it’s the world’s gift to you for being so awesome- why not enjoy it!? Your company should support the pumpkin craze and get some mugs to go around. Like these beauties… bet you can just picture them on your desk now, huh? http://media.leedsworld.com/ms/?/large/1623-26/en. In addition to that, we can even help you support pumpkin-mania by supplying you with lunchbox for all that pumpkin bread that you’re bringing to work. You know you want it… http://media.leedsworld.com/ms/?/large/2150-73/en.
So, did I convince you to love fall yet? If not, it’s okay, I still like you. At least now you will think twice before thinking of fall as just buffer between summer and winter. Instead, just remember all of the awesome ideas I gave you! Happy Fall!
