2019 Product Trends to Watch
WE WENT. WE SAW. WE GOT A LOT OF SWAG.
2019 has officially begun and there are hundred of innovative and unique items being released that push the boundaries of what a typical promotional item is generally assumed to be. This past week, the team travelled from NYC to Las Vegas to attend the PPAI Expo to see new products, meet with vendors, and learn more about unique decoration methods and custom products.
We viewed thousands and thousands of products, but there were a few that popped out to us. Whether it’s new drinkware or the hottest new tech accessory, we have you covered.
CHRISTA’S PICK: CORKCICLE
“Staying hydrated is usually associated with being hard to keep up with and boring (bring on the coffee) but it isn’t as much of a chore when you have a trendy water bottle. I love the Corkcicle bottle because the design is sleek and fashion-forward and keeps water cold all day.”
JASON’S PICK: JBL
“With so many bluetooth speakers on the market, no one does it better than JBL. They build a durable product with top notch sound quality and excellent volume range. Some of their items, like this Flip4, are even waterproof!”
DOMINIQUE’S PICK: CHARLES RIVER BOMBER JACKET
“Something that we're always keeping a look out for is retail quality apparel! It's easy to get stuck with the same standard tee's or zip ups, but this satin bomber is a great example of a creative and sleek alternative! “
JOSEPH’S PICK: CUSTOM PACKAGING
“What I love about this box is that it is 100% custom and made to fit any collection of products you want to add in it. This is a great way to launch a new product or service, thank your best people or customers and adds so much value to the gift.”
MICHELLE’S PICK: TECH TACO
“The fact that this is a plastic, taco shaped cord organizer is amazing. This truly encompasses the creativity of this industry. Anything that we dream up can be made and that is why I picked this as one of my favorite products.”
MARK’S PICK: NUMO BACKPACK
“As a designer Numo is one of my favorite suppliers, their use of patterns and colors are unlike any other vendor I’ve seen. They offer tons of fun products such as Notebooks, pens, carrying cases among many other things. My personal favorite were their backpacks offering simple yet tonal use of colors that will impress any client.”
SHARI’S PICK: ULLA HYDRATION REMINDER
“Water is life! I love the Ulla for it's simple and subtle reminder to hydrate. It turns any water bottle into a smart bottle and reminds me to replenish throughout the day.
