Merchandise can be a memorable and effective way for your business to reach customers. Plus it’s a great way to leave a lasting impression – especially during the upcoming festive season! So we’ve asked our designers to pick their favourite choice of merchandise collateral to give you some ideas of how your business could stand out during the holiday season.


Elle • Personalised Notebooks

“Personalised Notebooks can be easily branded and have a number of different areas that can be designed which gives the opportunity to show a little more about the business and be a bit creative! Plus who doesn’t love a good notebook (maybe just me)?”

Personalised notebooks are great to take to meetings and also hand out to clients. They can be given out to corporate clients who can use them at work or at home. The versatility and sleek designer touches of our notebooks make them one of our favourite promotional items. They are excellent marketing products that are not only practical but people genuinely enjoy using them.


Freya • Lip Balm and Sunscreen

“With warmer weather coming up these are a great way to expose your brand during the summer break. It is a consumable item over a period of time, so the branding stays out there for while unlike a static item that would just sit on the shelf for a short time and then get thrown away.”

Tgm have used lip balms previously as a giveaway for NPDC Guided Walks, which worked great as they were relevant to the event, plus everyone can use them. A giveaway is also always appreciated! This is the perfect combination for a kiwi summer gift with a branded touch.


Rachael • Thermal Mugs

“Personally, I love coffee! So every time I get one of these I keep it because you always need an emergency coffee on-the-go cup. A bonus of having your brand on this merchandise is that people almost never throw it away (well I don’t) so the branding is always there.”

Because you can take this gift on the go, other people out of the office can see the branding too. Plus the aluminium outer finish gives the collateral a more sophisticated and reliable look, a great option for corporate business. They are also versatile, and can be used as client gifts for Christmas, internally, or end of year sporting events.


Robyn • Mint Cards

“These cards last for a while, are easily portable and people like to use them – who doesn’t like a good mint?”

Mint cards are a useful and handy Christmas item, plus they also have a good area available for branding. Another bonus is they are also not gender specific; anyone of any age or background can use them. They’re perfect for use as a handout in a goody-bag for a range of businesses to use at celebratory events or highlight campaigns this coming Christmas.


Chloe • Flip Notepads

“These are my top pick as they are a great, practical item you can leave with people – and they always seem to keep them.”

Notepads are great around the office; often the TGM team grab them before meetings as they are practical and always look professional. Using them as Christmas giveaways is a great way to show off your brand. They can be designed to catch people’s eye or bring a professional element to a meeting.


Mae • Reusable bags

“ I love this product. They’re trendy but also really useful to have around the home, to take with you grocery shopping plus it’s better for the environment. “

Reusable bags come in all shapes and sizes. They’re a fantastic giveaway with the opportunity for your branding to be placed in a socially and environmentally conscious light. There are plenty of options available. Get in touch with tgm to find out what options could suit your business.
