What gift ideas for your business partners and employees do you currently have? I’m really fond of backpacks.
A hosting company I worked for as a brand ambassador branded a nice camouflage Dakine backpack for a Christmas party, which I believe also contained a pack of Converse sneakers.
I still remember both and really appreciated the gifts.
A tech event I presented at 4 months ago gave me another backpack with a hammock inside. A couple of years ago I received a microcontroller from a local company competing with Arduino/Raspberry Pi. I was totally stoked with these types of gifts and the local innovation competing with the big players.
While traveling to ~100 conferences, I’ve seen all sorts of swag that looked neat.
- Power banks were impressive at first but they are slightly more common nowadays.
- USB sticks as wrist chains always feel neat. If you find a waterproof one, this makes a great summer accessory.
- Water bottles.
- Swiss-Army knives.
- Eco notebooks with sticky notes inside.
