The 14 Most Popular Products of 2014
It’s been another excellent year at Promotions Now and as always we are endearingly grateful for our loyal blog readers and frequent customers. As a way of celebrating the upcoming New Year we have decided to highlight the top products from 2014. However, we didn’t select these product or ourselves or ask anyone to cast their votes; these are the products that YOU the customers have selected by placing your orders throughout the entire year!
After rounding up an extensive list of the most popular products purchased from Promotions Now in 2014, we have whittled it down to an aptly decided upon number of the most highly sought after gifts and giveaways.
Here is our list of the 14 most popular promotional products from 2014:
Mood Color Changing Pencils
The custom mood pencil is proof that some promotional products can stand the test of time and remain unaffected by changing shopping trends. This giveaway is suitable for any type of promotion in an educational or artistic setting and has been so for many years. In our pencils category, the Thrifty Pencil and Mood Pencil w/ Matching Eraser came in close behind our big winner.
Mood Color Changing Stadium Cup, 17oz.
It’s clear from our list that customers love our mood color changing products and mood drink ware is an especially popular choice. Our Mood Stadium Cups change color as you pour hot or cold liquids inside them and the 17oz. option is the perfect size for any social gathering or large promotional or charitable event. The standard color, 16oz. Stadium Cup was also a close contender but it looks like the mood color changing feature of this product keeps it at the head of the race.
Round Flashing Safety Light
Personal safety lights and devices are always in high demand at Promotions Now and our Round Flashing Safety Light has been shining above the rest this year. This basic and economic choice for reflectors and specialty lights shows that our customers are all in favor of simplicity and effectiveness. Another personal safety device that got plenty of action this year was the Pedometer w/ Flashlight & Siren.
Surge USB Car Power Adapter
Gifts and giveaways that help people stay connected on the go was one of the top trends for 2014 and the Surge USB Car Power Adapter was at the cusp of the tech products wave. Available in a wide variety of bright colors with a surprisingly ample imprint area and free shipping to boot, it’s easy to see why this was a winner with our clients. Coming in at a close second in tech products was our Charge It Up Power Bank, 2200 mAh.
Color Pop Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer Spray, 10ml
Cleanliness is godliness and hand hygiene saves lives! Our customers clearly understand the importance of hand sanitation and are successfully spreading the word while promoting their own businesses or causes at the same time. Other hand sanitizers that sold almost as much as the Color Pop Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer Spray were the Gel Go Hand Sanitizer w/ Carrier and the Citrus Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer.
Gel Bead Hot & Cold Pack, 4″ x 4”
Our custom hot and cold packs provide optimal room for a custom logo, marketing slogan or important message and have the ability to bring any of those to a household presence. It’s plain to see why our promotion savvy customers are loving this product. We offer many other shapes sizes of this particular item but the 4” x 4” square was the leader of this hot and cold pack.
Translucent Dimple Grip Pen
We deliver an astounding number of pens to our customers on an annual basis but the one that flew off the shelves more often than any other in 2014 was the Translucent Dimple Grip Pen. This budget-friendly writing instrument comes in an assortment of attractive translucent colors, provides longtime use and has a comfortable grip. It has winner written all over it! The Emissary Global Click Pen and the Papermate Breeze Gel Pen were neck and neck for second place.
Full Color Grab Bag, 7-1/2″ x 9″
Custom grab and take home bags are trade show and fair essentials for any marketable business or venture and while many of our different size and color options were selected all year, the 7 ½” x 9” Full Color Grab Bag was the most popular. Plenty of room for full color, high-resolution, photographic quality artwork makes this a very appealing choice.
The name says it all. This bag is perfect for everyday use and that is why our customers want to put it in the hands of their dedicated and prospective clientele. Everything about this product is huge; a huge selection of product colors, a huge imprint area and a huge value!
Grip Sport Bottle, 27oz.
Rising to the top of the ranks in drink ware and water bottles this past year was the Grip Sport Bottle. We know our customers enjoyed the collection of translucent colors, the large liquid capacity and the wide range of custom printing options. On the grip sport bottle you can place your imprint on one side, both sides or a full wrap, which also allows for a different imprint on either side of the bottle.
Learning About Money Coloring & Activity Book
Coloring and Activity Books from Promotions Now are the best promotional products for kids because they teach useful and educational lessons while providing hours of fun. For this reason, they have always been a favorite choice for our clients but this year learning about money was a major focus.
Rectangle Magnet, Large
Our large rectangle magnet was a top seller this year, undoubtedly because of its attention-grabbing potential. Nothing stands out quite like a large full color magnet and promoters definitely took advantage of that fact. It was no surprise to us though, that the Business Card Magnet , a tried and true promotional product, was not far behind.
Economy Flavor Choice Lip Balm, SPF-15
With 44 flavors to choose from and all natural PABA free and FDA approved ingredients, it’s no wonder that the Economy Flavor Choice Lip Balm was a top choice amongst our customers in the marker for personal care and beauty products. Close behind was the Fabulous Flavors Lip Balm Skinny Tube. It’s clear that you all love plenty of variety in your flavor choices, and we are happy to provide it.
Custom Pocket Can Cooler
We know it wouldn’t be a party without koozies, huggies, or can coolers and our customers think so too! Rounding out the top 14 products from 2014 is none other than the Pocket Can Cooler. This beloved promotional giveaway is made of fabric covered scuba foam and folds flat to fit into any pocket for maximum beverage temperature maintenance capability. In other words, it hugs your drink and keeps it cold!
