Custom Desktop and Office Promotional Item Trends

  • Sep 12, 2022


One of the most popular categories in imprinted promotional items is the desk and office category.  I absolutely love this category.  Whether an employee or top client is coming into the office, working from home, or, as is very common today, performing a hybrid work situation, they will need and use desktop and office products.   This category offers fantastic opportunities for branding. 

And trust me, these promo items are not boring!  They can be fun, colorful, highly useful, and long-lasting.   Gone are the days when a note cube was the height of a fancy custom office accessory.  You have so much more to choose from now. 

Let me show some of our most popular swag in this category, as well as some of my personal favs.  

First up, is one of my personal favorites, and a set that I have on my own desk and use all the time.  From personal experience, I can tell you when you gift someone this set, it will blow them away.  I sent them to all our clients of course, but then I made the mistake of taking several to a networking meeting.  “I’m not sure how many people will want this,” I actually thought to myself.   What happened?  I had to promise everyone there I would come back with more next week.  They were wild for these.  Also, even college students in my extended family wanted one.    So, I learned from experience that this is one of the top custom desktop gifts you can give to anyone.  

First I am going to show you the entire kit, which comes in an awesome matching colorful gift box, and then I will show you each piece inside, separately.  Because everything in this set is available separately.  

All of these items are from the “Up Your Standard” line.  Indeed!

First up is the Smart Stand mouse pad.  With its built-in phone stand and Sticky Pad® technology  to keep the stand securely gripped to the desk.  Featuring  a two-hole organizer and a huge full color imprint space.  This one makes a lasting impression.

I’ve always loved The Wedge as a desktop phone stand.  It’s unique and beautiful, a soft, comfy home for your phone.  Then the cool kids at Toddy came up with this.  The Wedge with a built-in wireless charger. The Wireless Wedge supports virtually all smartphones and wirelessly charges them with 7.5/10W of power.

Here is a fun one!  A desktop gumball machine!  This is really thinking outside the box and will surprise and delight employees and clients alike.  And you don’t have to choose gumballs as your fill.  You can choose from gumballs, peppermints, jelly beans, and even your own corporate color-matched candy coated chocolates!

Ring Lights are the new must-have desk accessories for both home and office of course.  We’re all on camera for work these days, aren’t we?  I miss the time I could have a bad hair day with no one the wiser, but here we are!  We have lots of choices on ring lights, but I happen to love this one for its premium, retail-level individual packaging.
