Buying Promotional Items for the Home

Giving out items that people can use in their homes is a great way to promote your business or organization because they are useful in your customers' everyday lives. These products are typically less of a novelty and more useful than anything else. They will become part of your customers' daily routine, exposing them to your brand and message with every use. Any industry can hand out promotional home items as gifts or giveaways. They are ideal for families and others who enjoy spending time at home.

Narrowing it Down

The home offers a pretty broad spectrum of possible products to choose from. You'll want to narrow it down to choose the products that will get the most exposure and use in the home. Think about the different areas of your own home, which areas you spend the most time in, and (more importantly) which areas your customers are likely to spend the most time in.

Outdoors: Outdoor home items include things like gardening accessories, plants, seed packets, flashlights, sports equipment and barbeque products. If you know your clientele enjoys hanging out in their backyards with family and friends, these types of items are ideal. These items prove useful, which they will greatly appreciate.

Kitchen: Promotional kitchen items are perfect for those who love to cook. Products like measuring cups, knives, drinkware, and more are ones that people need anyway, so they'll appreciate receiving them from you for free. Kitchen magnets and floor mats are less essential, but loved all the same. Learn more about buying kitchen giveaways.

Living Areas: Every home has some kind of d├ęcor that you can add to. With things like candles, ornaments and even nightlights you can help make your customers' living areas more homey. These items are great for dining rooms, living rooms and bedrooms. You can even find promotional pet products that families with pets will find useful inside the house and out.

Staying on Budget

Larger items like wine chillers and knife blocks typically cost more than smaller items like magnets and flashlights. After you've narrowed down your search to what area of the home your customers spend most of their time in, you'll need to filter out items based on your budget. This goes hand-in-hand with how you intend to distribute your promos. If they are intended as gifts or prizes, you can go with more expensive items because you won't need as many; if they are intended as giveaways at an event, you're going to need a lot so smaller is better for a tight budget.

Remember that promotional products are one of the most cost-effective ways to advertise your business, so no matter what you choose it will be money well-spent. It's always a good idea to keep a realistic budget in mind and think about the benefit these products will bring to you in terms of brand exposure and building brand loyalty.
