Top Winter Household Promotional Gifts


A successful promotional marketing campaign begins with contextualizing your campaign — who are you trying to reach and when? Distributing personalized gifts for the home during winter can keep your brand in plain sight for the entire season. You can help clients and customers beat the cold and rack up hundreds of impressions at the same time.

You don’t have to settle on the standard issue of pens or tote bags. Capitalize on those long winter months by handing out corporate swag and giveaways that recipients need to combat the ice and snow. Here are our top winter household promotional gifts for the holiday season:


Ice Scrapers


Compact, inexpensive and extraordinarily useful in colder climates, a premium ice scraper is one of the smartest investments you can make for a promotional product marketing push. Hand these out at a winter event and attendees will think of your brand every time they prep their car for the morning commute. Mix and match dozens of colors for the handle and blade of our Heavy Duty Polar Ice Scraper to align with your current branding.




The numbers don’t lie. Few winter promotional products are as popular as a personalized beanie. Stave off the cold and boldly feature your logo by handing out a knit beanie at your holiday party. Any day the temperature drops, your entire staff will be sporting your promotional headgear on their way to the office, while out running errands or enjoying some time off for the holidays. The universal appeal of beanies will translate to many target audiences.


Coffee Mugs and Thermoses


Nothing fights the chills like a steaming cup of coffee or tea. Purchases of hot drinks inevitably climb as the weather becomes colder, so why not capitalize on this with a well-timed promotional gift? The double wall construction of our bestselling tumbler will keep hot drinks hot for up to six hours. For your executive, gifts consider a vacuum-sealed travel mug that provides incredible temperature retention and a stylish modern design. 53% of recipients keep and use their promotional drinkware, making coffee mugs a wise winter promotional investment.




As the cold wreaks havoc on the average household, tools will be taken out of their designated box regularly. As promotional products, tools become an integral part of any home. Get specific with a high pressure metal tire gauge to help clients avoid blown tires during the winter. Consider appealing to a variety of needs by gifting a car tool kit that can remedy address a variety of common car problems.




Keep clients cozy with comfortable and customized blankets by giving them a staple comfort item for their home. With a wide variety of styles and personalization options to choose from, you can easily find the right blanket consistent with your brand message. Send top clients an indulgent double-sided fleece throw blanket to show your appreciation. Get your brand name and logo seen at outdoor events with a travel fleece blanket, perfect for caroling or watching a downtown tree lighting.

Take advantage of the winter months by targeting your clients and potential customers with household promotional products. Talk to a HALO Account Executive today so we can discuss what options align with your target demographic and your budget.
