Sun, Sand and Flip Flops

 

Custom Flip FlopsHere in Florida, we love our beaches. We have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world right here on the Emerald Coast. We also love the casual attire that is accepted as the norm at not only the workplace, but also at church. In general, the people are more laid back than other populations across the United States.

As part of the regular and casual attire you will see amongst Floridians year round is flip flops. Flip flops are the footwear of choice here. We wear them in the Winter. We wear them in the Summer. We wear them to the beach. We wear them to restaurants. We even wear them to work. Flip flop sales are a pivotal piece for the clothing and shoe stores around our area. Flip flops are so popular, that you even see many people wearing t-shirts displaying sayings about their love for flip flops.

Because of their popularity, promotional flip flops are excellent give aways for business in beach towns. You can choose custom flip flops with choices of many different styles, colors, sizes, and price points. They are great items to give away as wedding gifts for attendees or for the wedding party. They are also great for companies to give away for corporate picnics or get togethers.

Other uses of personalized flip flops would be to sell them at gift shops, hotels, beach accessory stores, salons, and boutiques. They are great fundraisers for churches, school booster clubs, and non-profit organizations.

Custom flip flops can be personalized with your logo or imprint on the straps and the sole. You can also get a cut-out of your logo on the sole so it leaves behind an impression in the sand. This option is sometimes called a “talking footprint.”

Flip flops are perfect give aways for any business. You don’t have to be a beach based business to give them out. So go ahead and get your custom order of flip flops today and help support our casual Florida lifestyle!

Great Welcome Gifts For Beach Hotel Guests

 

For beach front hotels, condos, and motels, spring and summer are busy times. Many of your patrons are repeat clients since many families visit the same beach area year after year. That’s why it is important to give them a great experience during their vacation. One way to do that is to give them some useful welcome gifts when they check in. If you are giving out gifts, you might as well personalized them with your logo and contact information. Here are just a few ideas of various promotional products you could give away:

personalized-chapstick

Personalized Lip Balm is a great option. Put the name of your hotel or condo on the full color printed labels. Be sure to get chapstick with SPF in it to prevent lips from being burned. The lips are one of those items that many people forget to protect with sunscreen, so this is a great giveaway.

personalized-frisbeesPersonalized frisbees are a classic beach toy that make great giveaways for hotel patrons. Anything to help occupy the kids while Mom and Dad relax on the beach is a perfect gift. Have your hotel logo printed on frisbees and brand your hotel to everyone on the beach. These toys will go home with them and they will have your hotel logo in front of them every time they use it

promotional-sunscreenPromotional sunscreen is a necessity for any beach goer. Many tourists come from states up north to the beaches in Florida or other Southern states and they don’t realize just how powerful the sun is here. That’s why when you visit any beach town, you see hundreds of sunburned tourists, some of which look very painful. You want them to have a good experience so they will want to come back, so give the sunscreen and that will hopefully prompt them to buy their own in larger quantities for their stay.

personalized-beach-balls

Personalized beach balls are great for not only the beach but also the pool. I see kids and adults alikeplaying with beach balls at the pool and the beach. Beach balls are great items to print your express menu from your Tiki bar to help bring in more money from your guests. Most guests don’t want to leave the beach in front of the hotel or the hotel pool to grab lunch, so encourage them to eat at your facility and boost your sales.

These are just a few of the inexpensive but useful and/or fun items that you could provide in a welcome kit for your guests. Think about other more premium promotional products such as custom beach towels or custom flip flops. These type of products can be sold in your hotel gift shop. Nearly any necessities that you sell, you can get them branded with your logo and sell them which further strengthens your brand with your guests.

If You Can’t Beat the Heat, Join It

 

There’s no denying that the heat in Florida is just about too hot to outside during the day, unless, of course, you are at the beach or in a pool. The heat is severe but you can enjoy it safely while swimming with the proper use of sunscreen. Why not leverage this heat and give out promotional sunscreen with your company logo printed on it? They come in all different price points and they are sure to be used in any hot outdoor environment. Don’t forget about custom lip balm with SPF in it to keep those lips from getting burned. Also, beach umbrellas are another great item to help keep you cool while chilling at the beach. These make great corporate gifts to give to your employees as gifts or rewards. They are also great to sell in your gift shop for restaurants and resorts or at retail stores. When buying your promotional products, make sure you buy the appropriate products that are useful and will be used. This gets you the maximum advertising exposure for your dollar.

Summer With A Splash

 

Living in Florida, we have to stay by the water as much as possible in order to avoid melting in the heat.  This includes both the beach and the pool.  I’ve noticed from being at the beach, I see all kinds of promotional products there.  There are frisbees flying and beach balls and beach umbrellas.  All of these products have some local and some non-local businesses printed on the items and offer lots of great advertising.  I also commonly see coolers, beach buckets, and of course beach towels all personalized with custom logos.  These beach promotional items are excellent ways to promote your business during the summer months.  These beach toys will be played with for years and continue to market your business long after you give them out.  These beach toys personalized with your logo are like little employees that continue to work without pay and without having to take breaks and guzzle water to beat the heat.
