    Our tops tips for selecting your choice of giveaway bottles

    It can sometimes be challenging to know what options to go for when choosing your branded up bottles or drinkware giveaways. That’s why we’ve put together this product list below for inspiration but also come up with key considerations to help you identify what factors are important to you for sourcing the perfect drinkware giveaway. Here are our top tips…

        • Right features and functions for your customers: Think about what you want the main feature/or functions to be for your customers. Should it be collapsible so it’s easier to pack away and travel with? Should it be well insulated and can be used to keep drinks at the same temperature for a long period of time? Or should it have other functions like tell you how much water to drink or allow you to blend fruits?

        • Think about the use case: Often choosing features and thinking about the use case goes hand in hand. For instance, if you want a bottle for travel then you will be looking for a lighter or easy to access bottle that can be stored away. Likewise, if you want a sporting bottle product, then you might go for certain style that doesn’t have all those other features you need. Think about what main use cases your customers crave right now and then pinpoint which type of bottle can deliver on that use case.

        • Eco-friendly and durability: A lot of drinkware products are eco-friendly, but if sustainability is the whole focus of the bottle product, then go for the crème de le crème and check how it’s made and how sustainable it will be. Suppliers can help you to understand where products and materials are sourced to get a picture of the overall impact on the environment and how durable products are.

        • Cost and quantity: Consider what budget range you have? How many bottles will you need for the external/internal marketing campaign? Discuss options with preferred suppliers to help understand what options can suit your budget and requirements.

        • Customisable features: Depending on how much customisation you require will depend on what options might be best for you. If it’s a case of a particular logo on bottle this will open options up, but if there are more customisations from patterns, particular colours and even style changes then this can make your options more focussed.

        • The aesthetic appeal: Lastly, discuss what kind of drinkware style is important to you and your brand. Does it need to be bold? A certain shape or style? Look unique to your brand?

      … And now on to the 10 customisable and branded drinkware options that customers are just loving right now!
