Our 5 Favorite Promotional Products of the Week: Retro Microsoft T-shirts, Clever Coffee Bags and More
We’re at the point of the year where the most heated debate arises: Is it too early to put up your tree?
Some of us at PM already have their holiday decorations up, and others are holding out until the last leaves fall and the temps are well below freezing.
It’s hard to be a holdout, especially when there are so many cool promotional ornaments floating around. But, we’re nothing without our principles.
While we distract ourselves from this inner conflict, why not check out five other promotional products that we’ve enjoyed this week?
1. Forward Madison’s ‘Wake the Flock Up’ Coffee
Our friends over at Forward Madison FC aren’t just pros on the pitch. They’re pros in the merchandising game, too. This is some clever wordplay, and every flamingo fan should have this in their cabinet.
2. Microsoft Emoticon T-shirts

We live in an Emoji world now, but sometimes you have to stop and appreciate the classics. Kids these days just don’t appreciate the time it takes to use punctuation marks to painstakingly represent your deepest emotions.
3. ‘Manchester by the Sea’ Band-Aids

OK, this is a weird one. Not only did that movie come out a while ago, it seems like a wildly depressing choice for a bandage. But, maybe some Casey Affleck fans feel better with the actor’s face over their boo-boos.
4. Miller Lite Rings
Miller Lite has been impressive with its promotional campaigns lately. This ring was part of a sweepstakes that is, unfortunately, now over. But, we still have to appreciate the craftsmanship at play here.
5. Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ Cereal
We’ve dedicated a lot of digital ink to Netflix’s branding efforts lately. “Stranger Things” fans can definitely appreciate this collaboration with General Mills, which touches on a handful of the show’s themes and plot points all within a single packaging experience.
