Top 10 Father’s Day Promotions
FATHER'S DAY. A day for eating steak and watching sports? Definitely*. Is it also a day full of potential for promotional products? We're pretty sure that's a yes**.
It's a scientific fact that dads like stuff. Fancy stuff, simple stuff, basically any kind of stuff that can be put in a garage or sit on a work bench is usually okay with the man of the house. This is great news for promotional marketers, since it's been rumored for a while now that garage- and workbench-branding is going to be the big marketing trend of 2012***.
We know what you're thinking. "But Promo Marketing, Father's Day is like two months away! Why are we worrying about this now?" The answer lies within our favorite fatherly aphorism: "Son/daughter, there's two things I'm sure of in life: It pays to plan ahead, and you should always listen to Promo Marketing magazine because it's pretty great." So listen to Dad and check out our 10 best product ideas for Father's Day promotions below.
10|A well-stocked promotional first-aid kit for all the times Dad tries complex D.I.Y. projects like hanging a shelf or changing a car's oil.
9|The TomTom GO 740 LIVE from Incentive Concepts is ideal for helping Dad avoid breaking father commandment #1: Never stop and ask for directions.
8|A stress ball or two to help him through all those magical parenting moments, like when his son comes home drunk for the first time or when his daughter's new boyfriend is a 42-year-old guy named "Snakegrease."
7|New dads only: A dad-friendly diaper bag. Something shaped like a Harley that can also read off sports scores and carry on an incredulous conversation about the weather would probably be best.
6|Forget the "World's Greatest Dad" mug, and celebrate fathers in style with a classy award from Crystal D instead. We recommend the Mova Globe 11", which will fascinate any father for hours, given their genetic obsession with tiny maps and shiny, spinning things.
