Help, my AC is out in August in Florida!

Promotional Products for Hot DaysI live in Florida and the summers can be brutal. The temps are typically in the mid-90’s. However, when you combine the humidity nearing 100% and temperatures in the mid-90’s, it makes for a very uncomfortable situation when your home air conditioning unit goes out.

As I sit here in the house trying to cool myself by being half-naked under a ceiling fan, it makes me think of several great promotional products for the hot, summer months.

The products below are great giveaways for use during outdoor festivals, company picnics, concerts, political rallies, and other outdoor venues to help keep everyone cool. And, of course, they would also be nice for those who have an AC on the fritz!


Promotional Hand FansIf you need giveaways for big crowds, promotional hand fans are great options because of the low cost. Sometimes just a small breeze can make all the difference. When there’s no breeze, hand fans are the perfect item to create a breeze! The great thing about hand fans is they come in hundreds of stock shapes, so they can compliment your company or event theme perfectly.

You can also choose from mini or standard size hand fans. Most hand fan options are available with your logo/design printed in full color! Other options for hands include custom shapes and various cardboard thicknesses.


Custom Cooling TowelsThese are one of the greatest inventions of the 21st Century. These custom cooling towels are printed with your logo and they are awesome to keep you cool while outside on hot days. You simply wet the towel and through evaporation of the liquids, the towels stay cold. By draping the towel around your neck, it keeps you cool.

Promotional cooling towels are great premium giveaways and great for selling to those at concerts, fairs, festivals, golf tournaments, sports games, and other outdoor events. If you are looking for a great fundraising item to sell during the hot months for your sports team, these are great sellers for parents and fans that are watching your games.


Promotional Water BottlesOne thing for sure is when the temperatures increase, we have to drink more water. That’s why promotional water bottles are excellent summer giveaways for your company to give out to customers and employees.

Staying hydrated is extremely important and even more of a concern on hot days. There are so many great looking water bottles from which to choose to have printed with your company logo. You can choose a water bottle that is accented with your company colors that is stylish so your customers will continue to use the bottle for years to come.


Custom Can CoolersKeeping your food and drinks cold while in the hot outdoors is only possible with a cooler with ice. Coolers are used for so many uses if you will be outdoors all day such as boating, going to the beach, outdoor concerts, or picnics.

My family uses coolers every time we visit our local water park. We pack our drinks and food for lunch and take a break mid-day to go to the car to get our cooler, then find a nice shaded spot to eat our lunch.
