2021 Top Promotional Product Trends

Have we ever more ready to close the books on a year? Probably not. Like the rest of the world, the promotional product industry was thrown for a loop. The new year will no doubt have its share of challenges, but with 10 months of pandemic experience under our belts, we feel much better equipped to predict what 2021 has in store for the promotional products industry. Here are the promotional products we predict will be hot in 2021!


Experts predict regular mask wearing to be in our foreseeable future. Promotional masks get 4,235 impressions. With in-person gatherings and events likely again in 2021, masks have the potential of garner even more impressions. This Reusable Face Mask is a top seller because of its affordability and how easy it is to customize.

Home Office Supplies

When (or if) businesses reopen their office, many employees now have a taste for the benefits of working from home. Flexible work schedules – weeks split between the office and home – will be popular. Office essentials like pens and notepads as well as gear to tote supplies between home and the office will be needed in 2021.

Outdoor Essentials

Local, state and national parks were flooded with returning and new visitors in 2020. Spending time with others outdoors will still be big next year. Outdoor must-haves like sunscreen, bug spray and beach/picnic mats will be highly sought after.

Employee Apparel

?Remote work will still be common in 2021, making it even more important for employees to feel connected to your business somehow. Additionally, the new year is projected to bring more economic stability, allowing many businesses to be able to hire new employees. Be sure that new and veteran employees are set with plenty of customized apparel!
