Team Gift Ideas for Summer

Here are our Top 5 categories for summer swag that will keep those employee vibes warm throughout the season. Our end-to-end services span sourcing to decoration to delivery to ensure that your custom promotional products are executed to perfection.

Summer Hats

The right summer hat can become an instant staple in any team member’s wardrobe. From bucket hats to camping caps, there are many trendy varieties to choose from.


The sun is out in full force so bring out the shades and shoutouts! Not only are sunglasses a thoughtful way to keep the peepers protected but they also offer a visible space to showcase your logo or brand messaging.

Beach Towels

Ideal for offsite days at the beach, company picnics, or weekend campsites, branded beach towels are a useful and eye-catching must-have when it comes to hot summer days and outdoor adventures. We offer only the most absorbent, soft, and best-quality towels in the biz.

Summer Totes

What do we love most about summer totes? Everything fits! Plus, whether beach-bound or going to the grocery store for some fresh fruit, a cute tote is a practical companion.

Custom Water Bottles

Cheers to the sunshine and the relentless thirst that rising heat brings. Branded drinkware is hotter than ever right now and there are so many creative ways to incorporate your company’s signature style. Whether it’s a full-color decoration commemorating the Summer of 2024, branding on the lid or bottom, or a sleek foil imprint or laser etching of a seasonal logo, water bottles are an easy choice for corporate gifts.

While promotional products for summer have been around for a long time, we are seeing so much more innovation in materials, decoration, and design that offer new ways to rediscover timeless staples.

Summer Employee Gifts are for summer-ing!

Like Bob Marley once said, "Sun is shining. Weather is sweet." That signals it’s also the best time for companies to pick swag that helps employees beat the heat.
