Trending Products for 2023

The new year brings more opportunities to connect with customers and clients, whether that’s through a conference, fundraiser, or a social media giveaway. Branded products are the perfect way to introduce your organization or strengthen your presence.

If you want to leave a lasting impression this year but aren’t sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve done the research for you. Here’s our list of trending promotional products we’re confident will be a hit in 2023.

Travel bags


2022 saw a significant increase in travel, as vaccines continued to roll out and social distancing restrictions loosened. Overall, people just felt more comfortable stepping outside the house. And while this year saw a travel surge, 2023 is expected to see a travel boom.

Whether they’re boarding the plane for business or pleasure, we’ve got all the travel items someone could need for a successful trip. For those mini toiletries or makeup items, check out our translucent Vanity Bag. Perhaps your recipients are fighting wrinkly clothes? Our sleek and lightweight Garment Bag will ensure their nicest items survive baggage claim. And you can’t go wrong with the Urban Duffle Bag, which is a staple item for short trips. Need more ideas?

Reusable products


Socialnomics predicted that in 2023, “any business that does not operate in the most environmentally friendly way possible will be overlooked in favor of ones that do.” Consumers, especially those in younger generations, have expressed positive sentiments when brands go out of their way to make their products eco-friendly.

At Second story Promotions, we’re aware of this growing trend and have filled our 2023 product line with reusable products. Show recipients that your brand cares about a greener future with products that replace single-use items. For example, reusable sandwich bags are freezer-safe and eliminate the need for plastic bags. Recipients can ditch their disposable straws for sturdy, stainless steel alternatives. The Harvest Bento Box is complete with reusable silverware, eliminating the need for flimsy plastic forks or spoons. View all eco-friendly items.

Wireless products



Every day, we grow further and further away from the outlet as tech products lose their wires and cords. Without the pesky cable, we have more mobility at home, at the grocery store, at the gym—pretty much everywhere you roam.

At Second Story Promotions, we’ve been keeping up. From phone chargers to Bluetooth speakers, we have a wide selection of wireless products fit for your modern brand. Our Mag Max Magnetic Wireless Charger makes achieving full battery efficient, regardless of whether it’s an Apple or Android. Pair colorful lights and high-quality sound with our Bamboo Wireless Light Up Speaker. And speaking of sound, your recipients will thank you for our Wireless Pods when they’re listening to music at the gym cord-free.
