#1  Logo Headphones

Logo Headphones and Imprinted Ear Buds can be a great holiday gift idea for 2011.  They’re a great accessory for iPods and MP3 players that are so still popular.  There are an increasing number of options to choose from both for headphones and ear buds.  While headphones can typically be imprinted with logos directly on the device, the size of ear buds requires imprinting on a case, holder or cord retractor in most cases.  That said, if purchasing in large quantities (5000+), custom ear buds with a logo printed on the bud itself are just now becoming available… and they can look HOT!  We’re expecting to see these become increasingly available in lower order quantities over the next year or two.

#2 Custom Acrylic Tumblers & Straws

These Custom Acrylic Tumblers with straws and lids are among the most popular promotional products available right now.  They are available in a wide range of vibrant colors and in multiple sizes.   There are also a variety of straw options becoming available from the standard acrylic straw that is colored the same as the tumbler to crazy straws that are shaped in loops and hoops inside the tumbler.

A few factories have even introduced special editions for the holidays like the one pictured which features a candy-cane striped straw.  Add some candy for an inexpensive yet eye-catching and functional gift.  There’s even a special edition that comes with a stuffed holiday toy with arms that wrap around the tumbler!

Add your logo and/or a holiday message to one or both sides of the tumbler.  There are even a few factories that offer a near-full-wrap imprint around the tumbler creating even more innovative imprint options!

#3  Custom Plush Toys

Custom plush toys (a.k.a. custom stuffed animals) are a mainstay holiday gift item.  With thousands of different shapes, sizes and styles to choose from, odds are that you can find just about any type of stuffed animal that you’re looking for.  There are a variety of ways that push toys can be customized but the most common is imprinting on t-shirts or other apparel items that the stuffed toy is dressed in.  In some cases, custom tags can be imprinted.  Of course, you can create your own customization by combining plush toys with other imprinted products like flashing buttons, imprinted scarves, custom necklaces and much more.

In larger quantities, it’s even possible to obtain custom designed plush toys.  These options typically will require a lead time of about 60 days or more, so be sure to plan ahead for the holidays if you’re interested in a custom plush toy.

Custom Fleece Sets will keep their recipients warm on those cold winter days that accompany the holiday season in most areas of the country.  There are several standard fleece sets available with varying items included like caps, scarves and beanies.  Of course, you can always create your own set by combing individual products… and they don’t have to be fleece.  Consider knits from cotton to wool.

Apparel items like these are most frequently embroidered which can support lower order quantities (e.g. as few as 12).  Some products can also be screen printed, however, this typically requires larger order quantities and a smoother surface to produce a quality imprint.

#7   Custom Serving Trays

Custom Serving Trays can be a handy corporate gift for the holidays equipping recipients with a tool that will come in handy for their holiday events.  There’s a variety of styles and choices available from traditional silver trays to eco-friendly bamboo trays like the one featured.  The products can be subtly etched, engraved and printed depending on the product.

At lower price points, there are a variety of logo photo snow globes available which can have an imprinted image or photo inserted into the globe for an economical option to create a custom globe gift.

#21  Branded Wall Clocks

For fully custom ornaments, the lead times can be in the 60-90 day range for hand painted ball ornaments and custom cast pewter ornaments.  Custom die cut ornaments tend to have the next longest lead time.  For shorter production times, consider stock shapped metal and crystal ornaments which can be imprinted, engraved or etched.  Of course, with any ornament, lead times tend to increase closer to the holidays and supplies can run low.  Bottom line, order early to avoid disappointment with lead times or inventory levels.

#23   Branded Gift Boxes

While some may not consider a branded gift box as being a holiday gift idea, the reality is that a quality gift box like these imprinted wooden blanket boxes will very likely be kept and used by the gift recipients… and in some cases, may be around years longer than the gift that they include!  In addition, a quality or memorable gift box can be a great way to brand gifts that are otherwise could not be imprinted.

Gift boxes can also substantially increase the perceived value of gifts… consider why higher end retail apparel stores wrap shirts in tissue that’s sealed with an embossed decal and placed into a quality gift box.
