5 Promotional Marketing Trends For 2022

Promotional merchandise is an exciting industry to work within at the moment, since the emerging promotional marketing trends are so diverse and inspiring. Far from the generic and limited options in previous years, clients can now choose from a huge range of products and designs for their promotional merchandise, and can personalise products to reinforce brand identity and demonstrate high quality.

Here are the Top 5 Promotional Marketing Trends we see being big in 2022.


Climate change is one of the biggest issues facing the world today, and studies show that consumers are willing to make big changes to their lifestyle and their spending habits in order to make a difference. The research suggests that millennials are more eco-conscious than older generations, and this is great news when you’re seeking to develop eco-friendly promotional products that resonate with your target market and your employees. These young professionals are taking the lead, and this means that sustainability is a very important consideration within your marketing strategy for many reasons. Shopping habits have changed dramatically, along with thinking about the sorts of promotional gifts that make the right impact. Take a look at the eco-friendly options out there, and you may be surprised to find that you can select from a wide range of beautiful and well made products that will speak volumes about the quality of your brand, and you can feel good about your contribution to the health of the planet as you do so.

Comfort & Self Care

With the events of the last few years, it is great to see that companies are putting wellbeing and their employee’s mental health as a top priority. One way we can help with this is supplying the ultimate self care package. To reward employees for all their hard work, employers are looking towards cosy promotional products such as blankets, candles and coffee cups to encourage self-care.

There’s nothing quite like getting a gift with your name on it, especially for those of us who could never find their name on items in gift shops. Corporate gifts are all about showing appreciation. And sometimes you want to make a corporate gift really personal. So instead of branding a gift with only your logo, you can add the receiver’s name, making the gift truly unique and special. It’s also a good way of ensuring that the person will keep the gift for years to come.

Innovative Gadgets

We pride ourselves on bringing our target audience the most innovative and trendy branded merchandise available, and everyone looks for the newest gadgets to wow their team and clients. For 2022, we have sourced the latest technology from around the world which can be branded with your logo. In some instances, your logo can light up in LED lights on the product which really makes your brand stand out from the crowd.
