Our 5 Favorite Promotional Products of the Week: 'Milk Pong' Tables, Coffee Mugs and More
We're in that weird limbo now where no one quite knows what holiday to decorate for. Halloween decorations seem out of place, and jack-o-lanterns have rotted. It's still just a little early to go full-on with the December holidays, but some people are doing it anyway. And Thanksgiving doesn't quite have the decoration-ready nature of Christmas or Halloween. So, it's kind of a free-for-all with themes right now.
Actually, that's kind of a good thing. Everything fits right now! It's like having a wild card in UNO.
We're still a little too early to focus solely on holiday promotions right now, so this week's edition of the Fav Five is holiday-neutral. (But still plenty of fun.)
1. Insomnia Cookies Milk Pong Travel Table
Santa Claus is going to go wild with this take on beer pong. Created by BAMKO, the distributor behind Insomnia Cookies' new merch store, the folding table brings a little competition to healthy calcium levels. (We're sure things like oat milk and almond milk also work on this table.) There's a ton of other excellent merchandise available at the store, including an enamel pin set and a cookie-scented candle.
2. Porsche x Puma Sneakers

There are few things as sleek as the Porsche 911. You can now wield that style and speed on your feet, complete with matching color schemes, thanks to this co-branding effort.
3. Globe x Pantone Color of the Year Skateboards
We've been reporting on the Pantone Color of the Year annually. It's always fun to see where the colors pop up. Typically, it's on the runway, but Globe Brands made it a bit more literal and turned skateboards into works of art. The boards, which are engraved with the color's description and story, also come in Pantone-branded boxes.
4. 'Patch Adams' Lab Coat
— Movie Promotional Merch Unlimited (@NightPromoting) November 8, 2020
For some reason, Brendan and his friends used to do this thing to make each other laugh where they'd put their hands in their pocket and stand on one foot, extending the other in front of them, and say "Patch Adams," mimicking the movie cover. Ah, to be 15 and bored again. The impromptu cosplay really would've gone to another level if they had this promotional lab coat from the movie's release.
5. 'Among Us' Coffee Mug
We haven't even played "Among Us," but after taking a peek at the game's e-commerce store, we sort of want this mug. We just like the idea of the coffee mug also having its own coffee mug. The designers missed an opportunity to keep going deeper with it, though. Mug-ception.
