Our Team’s Favorite Custom Products for Q4
With the winter season right around the corner, now is a great time to start looking for the perfect custom products for all your friends and family. Whether it’s warm new custom jackets, or custom gifts to show you care, our team of experts has spent the last few weeks digging into our favorite end of the year products so they can share their favorite finds with you. Here’s what they have to say about these awesome seasonal items.
Colder weather is just over the horizon, and our team is bundling up with brand new Columbia fleece jackets to keep their groups warm and cozy all winter long. The Columbia Steens Mountain Full Zip Fleece Jacket is the perfect way to keep your whole group warm all winter long and our team was excited by how comfortable these affordable styles were. Michael J. said, “The Columbia full zip fleece is also amazing as it gets colder, this jacket is perfect for keeping the wind out and keeping your body warm.” This jacket rivals other name brand competitors with its super soft fleece that features an anti-pill finish, allowing you to wear it again and again all winter long.
Soft shell jackets are the perfect way to keep your crew comfortable no matter the weather. Heather C. loves that Colombia jackets provide durability and fashion at a moderate price point, and noted that the embroidery gives it an extra elevated look. Matt K. said, “I absolutely loved the Columbia Ascender Soft Shell Jacket. I live where the summers are hot and the winters are freezing. I love being outdoors all year long, and this jacket is perfect for a cozy top layer in fall, or even a mid-layer in the snow! Its warm, water resistant and stretchable fabric, along with the true to size fit with adjustable waist toggles ensures comfort, insulation and peace of mind for all weather conditions.” He also added that this jacket is perfect for people in colder climates, skiers, outdoor enthusiasts, business and corporate professionals, and schools.
The team loved how soft and flexible the Columbia Women’s Cruiser Ridge Soft Shell Jacket was. Melissa B. loved how warm it was, calling out the polyester shell with the microfleece lining. That polyester shell also makes this warm layer water and wind-resistant making it an awesome piece to layer over your other favorite winter items.
The warm Columbia Women’s Benton Springs Full Zip Jacket was also a big hit with the team. Amanda K. said, “It’s super soft and cozy, so I’m definitely gonna throw this on a lot once the weather starts to get a bit chillier here. It’s the perfect option for when it’s cool but not super cold yet. I like the zip pockets because I always throw my phone in there and then I don’t have to worry about it falling out. I’m also glad it’s anti-pill and hope to wear it proudly for years to come!” As for who is going to enjoy this the most she said, “This is a great layering piece if you’re going back and forth from your car to various clients’ offices, or even going to tradeshows or airports where it’s always cold!”
Our team loved the look of the 12 oz. Wood Look Copper Vacuum Insulated Wine Tumbler as well as the fact that it comes packaged in individual boxes, which they noted was a great feature, especially for companies looking to impress their clients and crew with custom gifts. Roman P. said,“the wood grain look is great and contrasts well with a logo that you can print on it.” Heather C. added that the print was “pristine and looked very elegant.”
The 12 oz. Cafe Au Lait Ceramic Mug‘s bright color was popular among the entire team and is sure to draw attention in any setting. Heather C. loved the size of the mug, calling it petite and saying, “I am oddly interested in the way mugs feel in my hand and this size is perfect!” Amanda K. said, “I love the contrasting matte / glossy look!” and suggested this bright custom product would be great for “coffee shops looking for branded mugs to sell – you’ve got to have a cute option to catch the customers’ eyes!”
This standout favorite tumbler was a hit with the entire team, eliciting praise for its versatile design and endless uses. Michael J. said, “It was surprising that it holds a bottle and a can, mind-blown! During the week, I would use it for coffee and it kept it nice and warm. On the weekends, I loved how it kept my bottles or cans cold for the football games,” while Amanda K. mentioned that everyone she had shown the 12 oz. Urban Peak 3-in-1 Vacuum Insulated Tumbler to had also been amazed by its capacity. Ashley A. loved the versatility as well, saying, “Often customers are not sure what product or gift for the holidays, this offers a great option for everyone! You can use one product for multiple uses—no more cabinets full of cups, tumblers, or can coolers falling out when you open it.” She also added, “This is perfect for reuse in the office instead of water bottles.”
In preparation for the holidays, the team also looked at two of our favorite ornaments for every occasion. “I let my 3 year old granddaughter play with them and for sure they are child proof.” Ashley A. said. “It will be the ornaments that will keep your child safe during the holiday. You won’t have to worry about broken glass, pointy sharp edges and you won’t have to tell them no don’t touch.” The Shatterproof Flat Ornament and Shatterproof Ball Ornament also make the perfect gift for anyone looking to stay connected this holiday season. It’s easy to feel more connected to your team with your design or logo hanging on their Christmas tree.
When it came to the Laser Engraved Carson Ballpoint Stylus Pen, the team couldn’t get over how well it writes. “The pen writes so smooth, and I love the multi-purpose stylus option for our electronic devices.” Michael J. said. “It also came in an individual sleeve,” which makes for a great gift presentation.
Writing implements aren’t always exciting, but the team was pleasantly surprised by the Tuscany Roller Ball Pen. Skylar F. said, “At first I thought, ‘I guess I can never have too many pens’ but this writes so smooth and cute!” We also learned a fun fact about this pen from Amanda K. who told us, “This pen is tested to write for 2.5 miles—that’s a lot of ink!”
