Our 5 Favorite Promotional Products of the Week: National Park Apparel, T-Swift Celebrations and Unopened Soda
Oh, hello! Welcome to another edition of the Fave Five, where the Promo Marketing staff talks up promotional products we've seen online or out in the world. This week we have T-shirts celebrating cats invading football fields, Taylor Swift's usual merchandise prowess and more!
1. Parks Project's National Geographic Apparel
The amount of natural beauty in the U.S. is just mind-blowing. It's such an enormous country with so much biodiversity that we can't help but celebrate the natural wonder in every corner. We also have to protect those parks, too, which is something the Parks Project is looking to do while celebrating them with merchandise. The latest line is a collaboration with National Geographic, and it's quite excellent.
2. Dierks Bentley's Desert Son Limited-Edition T-shirt
Award-winning country music star Dierks Bentley has made a great "Living" since his 2003 debut, but it is the welfare of others that led to this promotional apparel item. As this Instagram post states, sales of this T-shirt will prove a big boon to those families whose relatives have dedicated themselves to serving our country.
3. Star Wars Episode I Mountain Dew

Everyone's talking about either the upcoming "Rise of Skywalker" movie or "The Mandalorian" series on Disney+, but let's take a second and remember the classics, shall we? This guy held onto a promotional can of Mountain Dew for 20 years since the 1999 release of "The Phantom Menace." I don't like Mountain Dew either, so I agree with his choice to display it rather than drink it.
4. DeMarcus Lawrence's "Hot Boyz" T-shirt

Earlier this season, DeMarcus Lawrence gave himself and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys' pass rushers the nickname "Hot Boyz." When a black cat interrupted play during his team's clash against the New York Giants by running onto the field, sparking a rally for the Cowboys in the NFC East matchup, the defensive end added the feline to the crew through this T-shirt. It sold out two days after its release.
5. Taylor Swift 'Eras' Merch Collection
Were we ready for Taylor Swift to drop this “Eras Collection"? No. But were we totally ecstatic to see every stage of T-Swift in this exclusive and limited-edition collection? Heck yes we were! Unfortunately, the collection has already disappeared from her online store, but it featured T-shirts, pullovers, hoodies, water bottles and mugs, all including images of T-Swift from the early stages of her career to her newest album, “Lover.”
