Branding for health promotional items has never been more popular and shows no sign of slowing down. If you want to get your own brand “out there”, you want a good, consistent image, with a strong logo and identifiable colours, and you want as many potential clients and customers to see you as possible. But getting your branding right is just the first step. To take it to the next level, you need to be able to select the right health promotional items for your business. You then need to think about where you want your promotional health items to be on display, which is often dictated by where your customers or clients are going to be.
When you think of generic branded items, the first thing you’re likely to think of is the classic mug or pen, but the sheer variety of products available now means you can start being more creative than ever. This is where you need to think big, bold and original – giving the client something they have never received before. If you’re looking for some health promotional gifts with a difference, then read on.
Health promotional items – the importance of wellbeing
Wellbeing at work is a huge growth area. Lots of companies now supply free health insurance for their employees. They host lunchtime running groups and yoga sessions. Some businesses encourage their employees to take annual check-ups, and they install gyms in their workplaces, so people can get a workout before or after work. Wellbeing is seen as an essential part of the employer’s commitment to their workforce.
Therefore, investing in health promotional items is a great choice and offers a welcome change from the norm. It says that you as a brand understand the importance of health and wellbeing, which is a great public image to cultivate. So what items should you choose to get started? Here are a few of our most popular products.
Four examples of health promotional items
Extremely useful and highly portable, promotional pill boxes can come in several different shapes, colours and styles to fit into any handbag or overnight case. Pill boxes help those who are taking various medications by containing the correct dose, and separating out different tablets which need to be taken at different times of the day. With several compartments to keep pills in order, these are ideal health promotional items for use by businesses which work in any health care setting – health care professionals, pharmaceutical companies, vitamin or health supplement providers, hospitals, clinics, dentists, care homes, or any company that deals with specific targeted groups, such as the elderly.
First aid kits
Absolutely every workplace is obliged by law to have a first aid kit. These kits should contain all the basics for accidents in any kind of workplace – plasters, antiseptic swabs, burn gel, bandages and scissors. First aid kits should usually be in a visible place, so it’s a wise choice for a health promotional item, as it’s very likely to get noticed, especially once it’s been branded with your company logo and brand colours! Any office environment would welcome a promotional gift of this kind, as it is practical as well as necessary. Kitchens in hospitality industries such as restaurants, hotels, bed and breakfasts and service stations would always have a need for printed first aid kits, as well as centres where people engage in different kinds of activities, such as multi-purpose halls, sports centres and schools.
Tissues and wet wipes
Tissues and wet wipes make great health promotional merchandise, often sitting on desks, reception desks and in various other public areas. Practically every workplace will have a box of tissues. In settings such as funeral service providers, counselling offices, health care settings or doctor’s surgeries, tissues are essential. Wet wipes are brilliant in anywhere that involves child care. These could be nurseries and creches, after school clubs, mothers and babies’ groups, and any hospitality venue where children or babies meet regularly. Wet wipes are also a good idea as a health promotional item in the beauty industry. Beauty salons, hotel spas, massage clinics, hair salons, nail booths and make up artists all need wet wipes as daily essentials, so are an excellent choice if you operate in any of those sectors.
The rise of the dreaded norovirus in work settings, especially during the winter months, is something everyone is aware of now. One way that this is passed on is through touching infected objects. Therefore, promotional hand sanitisers are an excellent way to ensure that your hands are protected. Hand sanitisers can come in many different ranges, for the bathroom, car, or home, including pens, wipes, kits, boxes and classic dispensers. These are health promotional items that can make a real difference to the health of employees on a daily basis.
