Our 5 Favorite Promotional Products of the Week: Nalgene Bottles, a Spongebob Sponge and More
Did everyone have a nice Fourth of July Weekend? We heard plenty of fireworks here in Philly, so we didn’t miss out with no official city display. Are promo fireworks a thing? If not, that would be fun. In an ideal world, they’d explode and light up the client’s name or logo. That seems difficult to pull off, huh.
Until that day comes, we’ll have to just celebrate the many existing promotional products that are awesome and worthy of our admiration every day. Check out this week’s edition of the Fave 5!
1. Father/Daughter Records Nalgene Bottle
Introducing the Dr. Father/Daughter reusable water bottle! This 32 oz Nalgene celebrates ten years of F/D on one bottle. Huge thanks to @treysea for the design and @sicfoo & @flashtaggyblog for helping to write out all the small text! Buy now: https://t.co/aHV6VzvqKU pic.twitter.com/IrdIKtZSjv

We told you guys a while ago that Nalgene was going to be the next big thing in promo bottles. Bands were already starting to use them as merchandise, and now indie record label Father/Daughter Records has one that plays off the verbose Dr. Bronner’s label.
2. Ozzy for President Merch
On July 4, Kanye West announced on Twitter that he would be running for president of the U.S. Well, apparently he wasn’t the only artist that mentioned they’d be running this year. Ozzy Osbourne has released an entire “Ozzy for President” merch line with hoodies, T-shirts, a lithograph, a bumper sticker and a button, all available for purchase on his store website.
3. Pixar x Stance Socks

We love the way these Stance socks are inspired by Pixar movies and characters without actually putting the names of the movies on the socks. They’re just neat, minimalist design homages. The “Finding Nemo” one is probably our favorite. Or “Up.” Or “Wall-E.” Wow, they all kinda rule.
4. ‘Hello Kitty’ Bullet Train

This has to at least be the fastest promotional product in the world, right? This whole train is decked out top to bottom with all things Hello Kitty. Sure, it might not be as effective when it blows by people at 175 mph, but for the people inside it’s great brand visibility.
5. ‘Spongebob Squarepants Movie’ Sponge
— Movie Promotional Merch Unlimited (@NightPromoting) June 30, 2020
This is just so on-the-nose and simple that it’s genius. We seriously can’t think of anything funnier than this. If anyone can get their hands on this for us, we’d use it every day. Or, better yet, we’d display it on our mantle.
