Everyone loves a party favor, and Oscar’s weekend is the perfect time to consider what makes a swag bag truly memorable. The Oscar swag bag is the ultimate party favor with Forbes estimating the 2020 collection of goodies value at a whopping $225,000.
While most clients aren’t looking for something that over-the-top, swag bags are essential for special events of any size. Including branded items that are useful, fun and unique sets a swag bag apart from other free giveaways to provide recipients with products they will enjoy and use frequently. Exciting items that are used in everyday life will keep brands top-of-mind while getting more impressions.
As more people receive the COVID-19 vaccine, the world is getting closer to once again attending live and hybrid events – with many returning this summer. Even though swag bags may look different post-pandemic, that doesn’t mean they have to be boring! Here are a few promo suggestions for building the perfect swag bag for your clients’ events in 2021 and beyond.
Cell phones are more multi-function than ever with the elimination of printed tickets and event schedules, so staying powered up is a must. The #32266 Light-Up Logo Power Bank 10000 mAh is powerful yet slim to fit easily into a pocket or bag. Plus, it lights up the logo while charging to really draw attention to your client’s brand.
Pouches & Organizers
Travel is ready to make a comeback, and keeping PPE-related items, cleaners and sanitizers together and organized is going to be a priority. A fun and bright choice like the #16157 Neon Multi Zipper Pouch is an on-trend way to elevate a useful promo to one of the recipient’s favorite everyday essentials.
Coronavirus has increased interest in antimicrobial additives that offer products added protection. This trend has even reached manufacturers like Ford Motor Co., who are working on incorporating antimicrobial coatings in their products. (2)
Tumblers & Bottles
A nice piece of drinkware is a no-brainer when it comes to building a great swag bag. However, a reusable tumbler like the #46323 Koozie® Slim Triple Vacuum Tumbler – 15 oz. is even more helpful during COVID. People can fill up their tumbler at home to stay hydrated or caffeinated on-the-go when water fountains or coffee stations may not be available.
In a recent survey, 70% of respondents said they are more aware now than before COVID-19 that human activity threatens the climate.

Eco-conscious end users are also looking for apparel made with sustainable/recycled materials like the #CS2083 Champion Eco® Powerblend® Pocketless 1/4 Zip, which is made with up to 10% recycled polyester content.
The Gift of Gear
Over the last year outdoor activities have become increasingly popular as both fitness and socially distant recreation options. Fun and functional promos like the #26181 Koozie® Clearwater Beach Backpack Chair appeals to veteran and new outdoor enthusiasts alike, but also provides a comfy seating option for picnics and summer events.
Sure, a chair might not fit inside a swag bag, but don’t let size limit your imagination when it comes to building the perfect swag bag. If end users will love it – that’s a win for your clients!
