Ideas For Summer Corporate Events

Outdoor Tent, table flag banner and cooler

Outdoor company events provide an incredible platform for team building, camaraderie, and appreciation of hard work in a refreshing and relaxed setting.

To create a branded, cohesive look and feel, consider incorporating custom signage – like branded tents, tables, chairs, and banners – to make the event uniquely yours. These items transform a regular outdoor event into a professionally curated gathering and amplify your brand visibility and provide a memorable backdrop for event photos.

Regarding functional necessities, branded drinkware such as water bottles or insulated tumblers are excellent ways to quench thirst while subtly promoting your brand. They serve as a useful keepsake that your employees can use long after the event.

As for apparel, providing employees with custom t-shirts or lightweight performance pullover jackets can foster a sense of unity and belonging, further strengthening your team’s identity. These items act as walking advertisements, spreading awareness about your brand.

Gifts are another thoughtful touch that can leave a lasting impression. Whether it’s a luxury item, a tech gadget, or something playful and fun, a well-chosen branded gift can show your appreciation for your team’s hard work and dedication, bolstering their morale and commitment.

Promotional Items For Picnics

Outdoor Blankets

Company picnics are an excellent way to cultivate a sense of community and camaraderie among employees. They provide a casual, relaxed setting that encourages interaction and bonding outside the formal confines of the workplace. Plus, they offer an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors and the benefits of fresh air and sunshine.

When planning a company picnic, consider the interests and preferences of your employees. This might involve conducting a survey to identify popular food options, recreational activities, and preferred locations. From a sunny beach picnic to a relaxed gathering in a local park or even a barbecue in your company’s backyard, the possibilities are endless.

Company picnics offer a great opportunity for employees to unwind, bond, and have fun outside the office. When planning a company picnic, it’s important to consider activities that will appeal to everyone. Classic picnic activities like games of horseshoes, frisbee, or volleyball can be a lot of fun, as can scavenger hunts or team-building exercises. If your company is located near a park or natural setting, consider organizing a nature walk or hike. Alternatively, you could hire a band or DJ to provide music and encourage dancing. Whatever activities you choose, make sure they’re inclusive and enjoyable for everyone.

In terms of food, you might opt for a classic picnic with sandwiches, fruit, chips, and refreshments. Or, consider catering from a favorite local restaurant. You could even make it a potluck where everyone contributes a dish, offering an excellent opportunity for team members to showcase their culinary skills and cultural cuisines.

Moreover, consider providing branded merchandise such as picnic blankets, reusable water bottles, or even custom frisbees. Not only will these items enhance the picnic experience, but they also serve as a lasting reminder of a day of fun and camaraderie.

In essence, a company picnic is more than just a fun day out. It’s a chance to build stronger relationships, boost morale, and create lasting memories – all while enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors.

Picnic blankets

Picnic blankets make excellent promotional gifts for both customers and employees for a few key reasons.

Firstly, they are practical and versatile, serving multiple purposes beyond just picnics – they can be used for outdoor concerts, beach outings, camping trips, or even just for a cozy night in.

Secondly, a high-quality picnic blanket branded with your company’s logo is a durable item that will be used and appreciated for years, providing long-term exposure for your brand.

Finally, giving picnic blankets as gifts conveys a message that your company values leisure and quality time, associating your brand with positive experiences and reinforcing a favorable impression.


Coleman Cooler

Coolers make exceptional promotional gifts due to their inherent utility and versatility. Perfect for beach outings, picnics, camping, or even backyard barbecues, they are items that your customers and employees will find use for in various scenarios.

By branding coolers with your company logo, you ensure your brand is visible during these enjoyable moments, reinforcing positive associations. Moreover, coolers, particularly high-quality ones, tend to have a long lifespan, ensuring your brand stays in the mind of the recipient for years. For picnics, consider Cooler Totes that are convenient to carry and large enough to handle your beverage and food.

Thus, they not only serve as a functional gift but also as a continuous reminder of your brand and its commitment to enhancing lifestyle experiences.


Tervis Drinkware

Drinkware, including items like insulated tumblers and travel mugs, makes outstanding promotional gifts for several reasons.

Firstly, they are items of daily use, ensuring frequent visibility of your brand. Each time your customers or employees sip their morning coffee or stay hydrated during a workout, your brand is right there with them.

Secondly, with advances in insulation technology, high-quality drinkware can keep beverages at the desired temperature for hours, enhancing the user’s experience and creating positive associations with your brand.

Lastly, there is a wide variety of drinkware styles and designs to choose from, allowing you to select items that best represent your brand image – from sleek and modern tumblers for the trendy customer to rugged and durable travel mugs for the outdoor enthusiasts among your employees. A well-chosen, branded piece of drinkware not only serves as a functional item but also as a reflection of your brand’s character and values.
