Whether you are looking to connect with people in the tech industry or to reach a broader audience, tech giveaways are a great way to connect with potential customers and vendors. And since tech has now infiltrated practically every industry, there are plenty of opportunities for finding the perfect tech giveaway that will connect with your ideal audience. Here are seven ideas for tech giveaway ideas, from the tried-and-true classics to the more unique and surprising options:
Power adapters and cords are a fine giveaway idea, but they’re not much good unless you can sit near an outlet and babysit your phone. Give your recipients the gift of power on the go with portable power banks emblazoned with your company logo or name. These power banks come in many different sizes and shapes, from tiny ones hardly bigger than a lipstick tube to larger banks that can charge tablets and laptops. You can even get custom power banks made to be shaped like your flagship products or company logo for a truly impressive tech giveaway.
Phone Cases, Stands, and Accessories
While not everyone has every single latest tech gadget, at this point it’s pretty safe to assume that almost every one of your giveaway recipients has a smartphone: 97% of Americans own a cellphone, and 85% of them own smartphones. This means that smartphone cases, stands, and other accessories are a surefire tech giveaway idea that pretty much anyone will be able to use. To stand out from the crowd, choose unique giveaways like pop bubble fidget toy phone cases or trusted name brands like PopSocket PopGrips. Many of these phone accessories are really affordable, making it possible to do a tech giveaway in bulk at a cost-effective price.
Bluetooth Keyboards and Mice
Laptops are super portable, but they’re not the most ergonomic for long periods of work. Adding a wireless Bluetooth keyboard and/or computer mouse can make a huge difference in allowing people to work comfortably without straining their bodies, which is why these make an excellent tech giveaway idea. If you want to create a gift basket or bundle instead of giving away a single item, then definitely consider adding in other computer accessories like cleaning kits, mouse pads, USB drives, and more. The end result will be a memorable themed giveaway that is perfect for anyone who works with technology.
Coffee or Tea Accessories
The modern working world runs on caffeine, which is why a high tech coffee or tea accessory is the perfect crossover gift for maximum appeal. Many people stick with a basic gift like a stainless steel travel mug or a coffee gift basket, but if you really want to make a lasting impression (and have the budget to do so), there are some truly exciting options out there. For instance, we love thermal mugs like the one from Ember, which maintain hot drinks at the perfect temperature for up to 90 minutes, no microwaving required. Or you can get in on the cold brew coffee maker trend with a device like the Asobu portable brewer, which was named a Top 10 Product of the year by Oprah Winfrey.
Whether someone works in an office or at home, everyone needs a high-quality pair of noise-canceling headphones for blocking out ambient noise and taking phone calls. These headphones are available in many different models, including Bluetooth vs. wired and over-ear vs. in-ear earbuds, and the case can usually be customized with your company logo. Depending on your budget, you can get a custom pair of top-of-the-line headphones, like Apple AirPods or Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones, or go for a more cost-effective model that works for a bulk giveaway.
While the old trick of putting your phone in an empty cup works (more or less), it’s so much better to have a dedicated Bluetooth speaker for good sound quality and volume. That’s why portable speakers are another one of those evergreen tech giveaway ideas that never go out of style. Ideally, we recommend looking for a water-resistant or even a waterproof model so that your recipients can use it at the pool, lake, or beach without worrying about a sudden rainstorm or sudden splashes. Choose from a more portable handheld size for travel or a larger tabletop size for parties and family gatherings.
Outdoor Entertaining Gear
Speaking of the outdoors, outdoor entertaining gear is another giveaway category that always does well. You can get everything from folding camp chairs to portable gas grills to water-resistant dry bags to battery-powered lanterns customized with your logo. Depending on how closely you want to stick with the tech theme, you can focus on tech-enabled gear like solar-powered power banks and portable UV-C cleaning bags that get rid of the germs on your devices. With the holidays coming up, it also makes sense to focus on giveaways that are geared toward colder weather, such as cozy outdoor blankets and custom touchscreen gloves.
