Promotional Teddy Bears - The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Jul 13, 2008
Wouldn't it be great if you knew of a promotional item that was cute, cuddly, and that everyone likes? Well, there is a promotional item such as this. If you have ever been in a hospital gift shop, you have seen it. This is, of course, a teddy bear.

Chances are that you don't think about a teddy bear as a promotional item, but it's one of the most popular and best loved promotional items available for companies. Let's take a look and see what possibilities these adorable little bears have.

1. New baby

Of course, one of the main reasons that someone will buy a branded teddy bear is when a new baby is born. A branded teddy bear is a great thing to give an employee who has just welcomed a new baby into the family. It can also be given to a client who has had a new addition to the family.

2. Illness

Another reason why someone might be given a printed teddy bear is if they have been seriously ill. There's something comforting about having a teddy bear when you are in the hospital, since anyone in the hospital feels alone and scared.

3. Birthday

The last good reason to give someone a branded teddy bear is when they have a birthday. It can also be given to an employee's or client's child for a birthday gift.

Other than using them as gifts when someone has a baby, a birthday, or an illness, there are other good ways to use your promotional teddy bears. These will get the word out to even more people about your company.

1. Donate them as prizes

If the town is having a carnival, offer some of your promotional teddy bears as prizes. Your business will get exposure and the people running the carnival will save money by not having to buy prizes.

2. Donate them for a fund raiser

You can offer an organisation some of your printed teddy bears to sell for a fund raiser. This is a win/win situation for everyone considered, because you can claim it as a business expense on your taxes and your company will get exposure, while the organisation helps with its fund raising efforts.

A couple of things to think about when you are ordering promotional teddy bears:

1. Get at least two colours of bears - pink and blue usually work best.
2. Get different bears for different occasions - birthday, baby and illness.

In a world full of promotional items that are all the same, branded teddy bears are a refreshing change. They are a great way to welcome a new baby, wish someone a happy birthday, or cheer up someone who is sick. When you offer promotional teddy bears, you can be sure that they will be something that people will love, and they will remember your company as a company that cares about their employees and clients. Branded teddy bears are a great way to let your clients and employees know that you are there for them, in good times and bad.
