Employee Holiday Gifts: The Top 8 Promotional Product Categories for 2023

Employee Holiday Gifts: The Top 8 Promotional Product Categories for 2023

by Chrissy Petrone, Content Marketing Specialist

Can you believe we are already in the midst of the holiday season? Pumpkin season is here, Thanksgiving is coming, and before we know it we will be ringing in the New Year. While you probably know that promotional products are great for marketing initiatives, trade shows, and client gifts, you may not think about promotional products as employee holiday gifts. The holiday season is all about gratitude —  your employees have worked so hard this year, and a great way to express your gratitude is to thank them with a custom-branded gift.

Since it is unlikely that all of your employees have the same hobbies and are into the same types of things, it might be hard to narrow down the perfect personalized gift for everyone. Don’t worry we’ve got your back. Here are the top 8 promotional product categories we are excited about for the 2023 holiday season:

#1 Home & Leisure

Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year. Autumn is officially here, and one of my favorite things about the season is spending quality time with family and friends. Whether I am hosting a Friendsgiving or sitting by the fire and playing cards with friends and family, aesthetics are important to me. I don’t know if I’ve caught the "Fixer Upper" bug or if it’s simply my personal preference, but when I’m entertaining I like for my home to feel and look polished, warm, and inviting.

Copper is in this season, and one of my favorite custom entertaining pieces we offer for entertaining is our Moscow Mule Mug 4-in-1 Gift Set. This four-piece branded gift set has all of the essentials you need to make an excellent Moscow mule. Not only is this custom gift modern and high quality, it’s also very thoughtful. Most likely, your employees will be using this while mixing a drink and relaxing at home. Even though they are away from the office, this gift will enhance their downtime and remind them that they have a great job to be thankful for.

Another favorite holiday gift of mine is the Field & Co. Sherpa Blanket. I love this customizable blanket because it is soft, trendy, and versatile. If you work in an office, then you know that sometimes it is boiling hot, and other times it’s freezing cold. This gift is great because your employees can keep it at their desk or use it to cozy up around a bonfire. Either way, you’re keeping them warm and showing how much you appreciate them.

#2 Custom Drinkware

Drinkware is one of the most popular promotional product categories, and we have some fantastic options for this holiday season. I suffer from a *minor* caffeine addiction, so I love a custom tumbler that I can use for hot coffee in the morning and that I can wash out and use for iced coffee throughout the day.

It’s pretty incredible that the branded Himalayan tumbler can keep beverages hot or cold for up to 6 hours. Some days I am so busy that I find myself sitting at my desk from the moment I get here till I get up to take my lunch break. When you are in the middle of a project, the last thing you want is to go for a sip of your delicious hot java only to find that it’s turned lukewarm. 

The Himalayan tumbler is such a life-saver for busy workdays and the 20 oz. Himalayan Tumbler is my new favorite design. This custom-branded tumbler is excellent for cold mornings on the soccer field or hot summer days at the park. It will help keep your employees fueled up and hydrated for any kind of day their week might throw at them.

I also have to mention the Intrepid Stainless Steel Tumbler - 40 oz. This promotional tumbler is a big hit here at Pinnacle and has become a coveted item around the office. Everyone loves this thing, and it’s no surprise. It holds up to 40 oz of liquid, can be used year-round in all seasons and for various occasions, and is just plain cool looking. 

It also has a double-wall construction, a screw-on lid with a straw, and is BPA-free. Plus, it comes in trendy matte colors. If you are looking to "wow" your employees with a unique gift this year, this is your show-stopper. It’s large enough to fill with smaller gifts and cool enough to gift on its own. Either way, your employees will be impressed!

#3 Branded Apparel

I love sporting my company's custom swag, especially on casual Fridays. I love where I work, and I feel proud to wear my company's branded attire to work and also out and about. Wearables are such an excellent and practical holiday gift for your employees. It’s pretty impressive when you realize how many different types of apparel and wearables you can brand with your company's logo.

One gift idea that has particularly caught my attention this year is  The North Face® Pom Beanie. Everyone makes resolutions for the New Year to become a fitter and happier version of themselves. The North Face® Pom Beanie will encourage your employees to get outside and start moving while keeping their heads toasty and warm. 

Another favorite of mine is the Port Authority Women's Interlock Open Cardigan. This is another coveted item around the office and is flattering on all body shapes and sizes. This cardigan is lightweight and has an open front, and the back seaming details at the waist give it a sophisticated and timeless look. What I really love about it is that it can be dressed up or down. I can wear this with workout clothes, while running errands, around the office, and dress it up for meetings with my clients. This custom piece pairs well with so many different styles and occasions and is a classy way to promote your brand. The Port Authority Interlock Full-Zip is our men’s compatible piece.

Branded apparel is one of our top-selling product categories, and we are adding more unique styles all of the time. From short and long-sleeved polos, jackets, cardigans, dress shirts, workout attire, winter attire, or even fashionable beanies, you will be able to find the perfect gift for your employees this holiday season.

#4 Branded Food Gifts

Charcuterie boards are all the rage this year. Whether you are hosting a holiday event or bringing food to a potluck, the Charcuterie Favorites Board with Meat and Cheese Set is the perfect item for the holidays and year-round. This comes with dry cured salami, assorted cheeses, cheese knife, crackers, and gourmet mustard. All are packaged with a beautifully engraved bamboo cutting board. Delicious food and high-quality cutting board and knife make for an excellent and thoughtful custom holiday gift for your employees.

Food gift sets are always a popular choice, and we have the perfect gift to fit this trend. Our Holiday Treats Tower is such a cool and "out of the box" (pun intended) way to show employee recognition this year. Packed with a variety of gourmet goodies, including chocolate-covered pretzels, caramel popcorn, and mixed nuts, this delightful tower is designed to satisfy every palate. The mix of sweet and savory snacks caters to different tastes, ensuring there's something for everyone on your team. The Holiday Treats Tower is an ideal way to strengthen employee morale, boost holiday cheer, and express your sincere thanks for their contributions, making their holiday season a little brighter. 

It is difficult to choose just a few food gifts for this season, but we have so many different offerings to meet your needs this season that you will have no issue picking something tasty, classic, and memorable.

#5 Promotional Outdoor Items & Safety Products

We are so busy these days, and the holiday season is definitely the busiest time of year. Between working 40+ hours a week, trying to prep healthy meals, exercising, and sleeping eight hours a night the last thing most working professionals think about is their car battery. Most people are back to commuting to work daily and put a lot of wear and tear on their vehicles. Being prepared for the worst is important, and safety gifts are a great way to make sure your employees are safe on the road and able to get to work on time with less stress. The Highway Companion Gift Set is the perfect gift for your commuter employees.

This thoughtfully curated set includes a sleek, black leatherette pouch containing essential tools every traveler needs. The set features a power bank to keep their devices charged on the go, a multi-functional flashlight, and a compact yet mighty tire pressure gauge. Practical and stylish, this gift embodies your appreciation for your team's dedication. Living in Atlanta, commuting takes up a good portion of my day. On a good day, I can make it to work in 45 minutes, and I would love to have a kit like this in my car…just in case.

It’s almost impossible to keep weight off during the holidays. From work parties to family gatherings, food tends to be the centerpiece for all occasions. I am trying to exercise more and am really watching my diet. I want to be healthy, and there is a strong chance that your employees will make some sort of health-conscious resolution for the new year as well. 

The Adventure Duffle Bag is an excellent investment for your health. It’s perfect for hiking but can also be used to pack gym clothes, healthy snacks, and whatever else your employees will need to tackle their 2024 health goals. Corporate health and wellness initiatives are important for companies to focus on, and this is a great way to encourage your employees toward a healthier lifestyle.

#6 Branded Tech

Technology is such an exciting and universal promotional product category. Every one of your employees uses some sort of technology every single day. From Bluetooth wireless speakers, power bank and jolt chargers, USB drives, headphones, wireless Bluetooth earbuds, and activity monitors, there are so many unique and modern gift options in this product category.

I am definitely a technology junkie, so this is the hardest category for me to narrow down, but I have to mention the Essos True Wireless Auto Pair Earbuds w/ Case. These sleek and high-quality earbuds are more than just a gift; they're a gesture of appreciation. Featuring auto-pair technology and a secure-fit design, they provide premium sound quality while ensuring comfort during long listening sessions. 

The compact charging case ensures they're always ready to go, perfect for on-the-go employees. These are excellent for commuting, traveling, exercising, and whatever else your employees are up to. Many of the newer mobile devices don't have a headphone jack, so wireless headphones are the way to go, making these headphones convenient and forward-thinking.

The Sleek Aluminum 4,000 mAh Power Bank is the ideal holiday gift to light up your employees' festive season. This stylish and functional power bank is designed to keep your team connected and powered up throughout their busy days. Its 4,000 mAh capacity ensures that they can charge their devices on the go, from smartphones to tablets. The sleek aluminum finish and compact size make it a chic and convenient accessory, while the customizable branding options add a personalized touch to your holiday gifting. By choosing this gift, you're demonstrating your appreciation for your employees' dedication and offering them a practical tool to stay charged and productive. Show your gratitude and give the gift of power and connectivity this holiday season.

#7 Custom Office Items

Personalized office products are practical and thoughtful. I know for me personally I love my company-branded notebook. My team has weekly meetings, and our sales department tends to have many meetings at various times during the week. The Manhattan Writing Pad is a great choice if you are considering a nice notebook for your employee gift. It is made with genuine leather, which gives it a sleek and professional appearance. It also features an interior organizer with business card pockets and a document folder. This notebook can be used around the office or on-the-go for client meetings.

I love my notebook for organization, but there are so many other unique office categories for employee gifts. The Truman Wireless Charging Accessory Tray is by far my favorite office holiday gift for the season.

This multifunctional and stylish desk accessory acts as an organizational hub for personal items, and it includes a wireless charging pad, ensuring devices stay powered throughout the workday. I think this item is so cool and so different. Your employees will absolutely love feeling well-equipped to tackle their daily tasks, making it the perfect holiday token for a productive and connected work environment.

#8 Branded Sustainable Gifts

Sustainability has been a big topic this year and offers another unique promotional product category that you may have not considered for holiday gifts. Whether your employees are traveling for business or pleasure, the Aft Recycled PET 21" Duffel is a fantastic holiday gift.

Crafted from recycled plastic bottles, this eco-friendly duffel not only showcases your commitment to the environment but also offers ample storage space for all your employees' travel or gym essentials. Its versatile design complete with multiple zippered pockets, an adjustable shoulder strap, and durable handles, ensures a seamless transition from work to play. This duffel is a very high-quality and thoughtful gift for you to give your employees this holiday season.

After a busy work year, relaxation is on everyone’s mind at the end of Q4. Our MiiR® Camp Cup Gift Set is a fantastic employee gift to encourage healthy work/life balance. This gift set includes a classic campfire-style mug and a high-quality, dual-layered vacuum-insulated tumbler. Whether your employees are sipping their morning coffee or a refreshing beverage on a camping trip or at their desk, this gift set keeps their drinks at the ideal temperature. It's a versatile and eco-friendly option that encourages your team to reduce waste by using reusable containers. Your team has worked so hard this year, and they deserve to relax and feel appreciated for all of their efforts.

Building Brand Loyalty with Work-From-Home Survival Kits

Building Brand Loyalty with Work-From-Home Survival Kits

In this guide, we explore work-from-home essentials to help build employee loyalty and ensure your team has everything they need to help your business thrive. 

It’s not a big surprise that we have seen a huge shift towards working from home in recent years. Even with offices reopening after the initial lockdown of the pandemic, many companies are expanding their talent base by opening up job positions for remote workers. As a result, many organizations have started to supply their employees with work-from-home survival kits full of essential items to help them stay productive, and comfortable to help build brand loyalty with new remote hires and even current remote employees.

In this blog post, we’ll explore why work-from-home survival kits are important and how promotional products can enhance them. We’ll also provide examples of promotional products that can be included in a work-from-home survival kit to make remote work more enjoyable and efficient.

Why Are Work-From-Home Survival Kits Important?

As companies embrace remote work, it’s becoming increasingly important to support employees and help them feel welcomed and engaged as a team. An article on trending statistics by Zippa shows that, as of 2022, 26% of U.S. employees work from home. While this number is down from 41.7% in 2020, 66% of employees work in a hybrid environment — working from home some days during the week. And projections show that by 2025, 36.2 million employees will work remotely. 

All of this is to say that remote work won’t be going anywhere anytime soon! So how can employers help set their employees up for success? 

One way to do this is by providing work-from-home survival kits that include essential items to help employees stay productive and comfortable. These kits can help ensure employees have what they need to work from home. And they can also be a powerful tool for building brand loyalty.

Think about it — when you send out a work-from-home survival kit to your employees, you’re not just sending them a bunch of random items. You’re sending them a message: “We care about you, and we want to make sure you have what you need to succeed, even when you’re working from home.” This can go a long way in building trust and loyalty between your company and your employees.

What are the benefits of giving your employees a work-from-home kit?

Now that we’ve explored the current and upcoming trends of working from home, let’s dive into the specific benefits that these kits can provide to both employees and companies alike.

#1 You reinforce your company’s values and culture

It’s not just about the message — it’s also about the items you include in the kit. By choosing promotional products that are both useful and on-brand, you can reinforce your company’s values and culture. 

For example, if your company is all about sustainability, you might include a reusable water bottle or a set of bamboo utensils. Or if you’re a tech company, you might include a branded webcam cover, a wireless charging pad or other custom promotional tech items. By choosing items that align with your brand, you can create a cohesive experience for your employees and strengthen their connection to your company. 

#2 You help employees feel connected to each other

Another benefit of work-from-home survival kits is that they can help your employees feel more connected to each other, even when they’re working remotely. By including items that encourage collaboration and communication, you can foster a sense of community among your team. 

For example, you might include a set of branded earbuds for virtual meetings or a team-building game that can be played online. These small touches can go a long way in creating a positive and supportive work culture, even in a remote environment.

#3 Creates surprise and delight

Work-from-home kits can create surprise and delight for employees because they show that the company is invested in their well-being and success. By providing essential items for remote work, companies can help employees feel supported and valued. 

Additionally, including branded promotional products in the kit can create a sense of excitement and exclusivity, as employees receive items they may not have expected. This can foster a positive emotional connection between the employee and the company, leading to increased loyalty and job satisfaction.

#4 Work-from-home kits can be shared on social media! 

When employees share their work-from-home survival kits on social media, they can help to increase brand awareness and reach a wider audience. By showcasing the branded promotional products in the kit, employees are essentially acting as brand ambassadors for their company. 

This can lead to increased engagement and interest from potential customers or job candidates who may be drawn in by the positive messages and values represented in the kit.

How to build a work-from-home kit

Now that you are more familiar with the benefits of work-from-home kits, you may wonder how to build one. While you can absolutely find pre-made kits, you may want to consider creating your own unique kit with items that reflect your brand and show thoughtfulness that your employees will recognize. 

At Pinnacle Promotions, we offer custom kitting and drop shipping to help ensure you are giving the best work-from-home essentials. Just head to the link and fill out the form. From there our promotional professionals will assist you with building and shipping your kits exactly where they need to be.

Custom Athleisure Apparel Items Activate Your Brand

Custom Athleisure Apparel Items Activate Your Brand

Merriam-Webster defines Athleisure as “casual clothing – like yoga pants, sweat pants and hoodies – that are designed to be worn for both exercising and for doing (almost) everything else,” and they’ve flagged athleisure as a word to watch, and for good reason! With the original trend dating back to as early as the 1970’s, it wasn’t until the early 2000’s that it started to stick, and wasn’t until 2016 it really took off. Athleisure wear is comfortable, functional, and here to stay.

Nearly every popular brand has some sort of athleisure or activewear line, and many major retailers include “athleisure” or “activewear” as a category to sort by for online shopping (think Target, Nordstroms, Macy’s, Dillards, etc,). Classic sporting goods brands such as Adidas, Nike and Under Armour are coming out with new retail items every day, and there are a ton of companies that only sell athleisure wear – i.e. lululemon, Fabletics, Athleta, Lucy, etc.

With the increase in popularity of this trend, it’s only natural that companies will want to put their logo on athleisure items. After all, this trend is an acceptable style choice for almost all situations, so organizations from all industries are taking this opportunity to put their logo on athleisure wear and get their brand maximum exposure. Let me explain:

Whether I’m working out, running errands, doing house chores, grabbing dinner with friends, or even getting ready for work, I can grab something in my closet that is appropriate for the occasion and falls into the athleisure category.


Custom Athleisure Drapey tee from pinnacleIf I’m going to hit the gym, I tend to go for comfortable athletic leggings paired with a flowy, breathable tank top or t-shirt such as the Ladies Drapey Cross-Back Tee. A great men’s alternative would be the District Made Mens Tri-Blend Pocket Tee – something comfortable, breathable and on trend. The best part about these tops are when they’re not being worn to the gym, they can be matched with a nice pair of jeans and it immediately creates a whole different outfit for a casual dinner with friends, just like that! They’re versatile, comfortable, and best of all, expose your brand in a subtle and trendy way. These make great Spring/Summer customer appreciation gifts, outdoor event giveaways, and a unique Casual Friday piece for your employees.


Custom Ogio jacket - athleisure form Pinnacle PromotionsAnother great athleisure staple is the perfect hoodie, pullover or zip-up. There are so many different styles for this category, but they all serve the purpose of layering up. From thick, comfy fleece hoodies, to light and breathable pullovers, to quarter zips with thumb holes, or full zips with a slouchy hood – they can all be layered and worn with almost everything, everywhere from the gym to the office to the grocery store. The Ogio Endurance Origin Jacket is a great piece that is my go-to in my closet, and resembles something you’d find in lululemon, but at a fraction of the cost. It comes in both a men’s and women’s style and is sure to get a lot of wear by the end user. Give these out as high-value holiday gifts or sales awards to make a great impression. We got these a few years ago at Pinnacle and I still wear mine all Fall and Spring!


Custom Nike polo - athleisure from Pinnacle PromotionsPolos are classic promotional apparel items, but the athleisure trend has caused athletic polos to really take off. Moisture wicking and performance style polos (and t-shirts!) are more and more popular among businesses and organizations. They still provide the same professional polo look, but in a more comfortable material that is durable and trendy. One of the most popular performance style polos is the Nike Golf Dri-FIT Crosshatch Polo. With a ladies’ companion, this shirt easily transitions from the office to the golf course or tennis court.

Athleisure apparel items make great marketing vehicles for many reasons:

  • trendy – often, companies like to stay in style, and their promotional gifts and giveaways reflect that.
  • versatile – athleisure apparel is useful for many occasions, so companies feel good about giving pieces to their employees and customers
  • accessible – varying price points, from budget-friendly to high-quality name brands.

If you’re looking for well known brands such as Nike, Under Armour, or Adidas, we can source multiple styles from these brands, and we are able to decorate them with your logo. These names come at a higher price point, but they are perfect for those who want to get in on the athleisure trend with the higher perceived value and the well-known brand name. For value-driven organizations with a smaller budget, there are plenty of brands that offer comparable pieces and styles at a fraction of the cost. Ogio, Sport-Tek, and Next Level are becoming more and more popular and well known brand names. They offer the same, if not more, options at different price points and in all kinds of styles.

When considering apparel as a promotional item, you want to spend your money on something functional that will give your logo and brand the most exposure, whether it’s for your employees or for your customers. Because athleisure items can be worn in multiple settings and occasions and aren’t pigeonholed into one particular wardrobe box, you’re sure to get the most bang for your buck when branding these pieces. For more ideas, check out our website or contact your account manager!

3 Surprising Things You Don’t Know About…Promotional Apparel

When shopping for promotional apparel, don’t make the mistake of missing out on 3 key factors that matter and should be part of your decision-making process.

We interviewed our Sr. Merchandising Manager Megan McConnell and she shared her top 3 things that people need to know about purchasing promotional apparel.

Protection Factors

The trend of protection factors in fabrics also applies to promotional apparel. OSHA recommends your workforce be protected from UV Rays and monitor themselves for skin cancer regularly.

Many customizable items have fabric that is rated for UVA-blocking ingredients. Also, you can find micro-bacterial fabrics throughout promotional categories such as apparel and even home goods.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has strict requirements for apparel labeled or sold as “Youth” apparel. The fabric must be labeled for origin of location, contents and safety issues like flammability. A hooded promotional sweatshirt labeled for “Youth” does not have drawstrings around the hood, per USCPSC guidelines.

3 Surprising Things You Don’t Know About…Embroidery

Embroidery, as a process, goes back thousands of years. The earliest recorded embroidered garment dates back to 700 CE. Today, the embroidery process is completely digitized, though some of the foundations of embroidery are still key to the process as a whole.

Old Tools

The use of the embroider hoop dates back to the beginning of the process. They were originally made of wood, bone or ivory. Today, they are made of wood or plastic. Even machines with multiple stations still require one hoop per station. Hoops are necessary to keep the fabric taut while working.
