All in Good Health: Healthy Holiday Gift Ideas

Posted on Updated on

Health quote. Typographical Poster.The holidays are upon us, providing the perfect opportunity to come up with tangible ways to show appreciation for all of the professional people in your life. And what better way to express gratitude than to encourage good health at a time when so many succumb to sickness?

Unfortunately, illness is an unwelcome companion that often accompanies the holiday season. Experts disagree about the cause. Some attribute the anomaly to travel. Others point to what’s known as the “let down effect,” while others blame Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s festivities because they require people to congregate, which increases exposure to viruses and bacteria.

Healthy Holiday Gift Ideas

Whatever the cause, we have come up with some gift ideas that will help your clients, patients, customers, vendors and friends beat the sniffle-filled storm:duffle-bag

  • Work out – resist the temptation to let holiday happenings overtake your fitness regime. But don’t beat yourself up. It may not be possible to fit five workouts in a week between get-togethers, shopping trips and holiday baking. But instead of giving up, make a commitment to run, bike or Zumba at least three days a week.

     

  • showroompic-5Eat right – comfort food is appealing when temperatures drop and time is in short supply. But you can’t expect your body to run right if you are filling it with junk food. If cold meals like salads leave you uninspired, make a pot of hearty vegetable soup to grab on the go.
  • Sleep – experts recommend at least eight hours per night for adults, although a Gallup poll reports that 40 percent of all Americans just 6.8 hours of shut eye per night. If you can’t get a full eight, try to catch a catnap, which has been proven to improve performance.
  • Drink water, which regulates temperature, lubricates and cushions joints, protects spinal cord as well as other tissue, and helps eliminate waste through urination and perspiration.
  • qpic-1Sanitize! Wash your hands with soap and hot water as often as possible during the holidays. If you don’t have access to a sink and faucet, avail yourself of hand sanitizer, which is known to reduce bacteria on skin.

Healthy Holiday Case Study

An On Target client asked us to help them with a gift that would help their employees move. They understood that the healthier their staff members were, the more alert they would be at work and the less time they would spend away from the job. So they set a walking goal for their employees for a 3-month period. Each employee who reached the goal received a gym duffle bag. This program was a win-win: healthier employees had fewer sick days and employees were delighted with a reward that marked their achievement.

Swag on Target

Posted on Updated on

swagTheories abound as to the exact meaning and origin of the word “swag:”

  • Some say it originally referred to goods stolen by a burglar.
  • Others believe it to be an acronym standing for phrases such as:
    • Souvenirs, Wearables, And Gifts
    • Stuff We All Get
    • Stuff We Are Given
    • Stuff We Ain’t Got
    • Sealed With A Gift
  • Merriam Webster defines it as, “a noun used to describe promotional items since the 1960’s” — referring to everything from promotional records sent to radio stations to free slippers for airline passengers.olive-oil-setWhatever its origin, the term caught on when Hollywood actors and actresses started receiving bags of valuables at award shows. This practice broadened the meaning and eventually came to encompass anything given to an attendee of an event (such as a conference) as a promotional gift.

At On Target Promotions, we use the term “swag” to refer to fun, free branding items placed in bags of exited award winners and party-goers as well as trade show attendees. And it is our pleasure to offer the best available swag for our customers, clients, vendors and friends.

Although people tend to think of swag in terms of common items such as T-shirts, mugs and pens, your options for branded gifting are virtually endless. And the great thing about swag is that it has staying power. When you give a prospect or client a unique item that they can use time and again, your brand will be reinforced each time the logo-d item is used.

Holiday Traditions On Target

Posted on Updated on

img_0371The Great American Melting Pot contains a wealth of holiday traditions which can be traced to countries across the globe:

Christmas

  • Christmas trees were first used in Germany. Long before the advent of Christianity, plants and trees that remained green all year had a special meaning for people in the winter. Just as people today decorate their homes during the festive season with pine, spruce, and fir trees, ancient peoples hung evergreen boughs over their doors and windows. In many countries it was believed that evergreens would keep away witches, ghosts, evil spirits, and illness. Germany is credited with starting the Christmas tree tradition as we now know it in the 16th century when devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes.
  • Santa Claus (aka St. Nick) is said to have first shown up bearing gifts in Scandinavian homes. Most kids learn that Santa Claus comes from the North Pole, but children in Scandinavia are taught he lives a bit farther south. Where exactly is a matter of much debate, with businesses in Finland, Sweden and Norway competing to cash in on the cachet that comes with claiming Santa’s hometown.
  • Letters to Santa. According to Smithsonian Magazine, the earliest Santa letters are similarly didactic, usually coming from St. Nicholas, rather than written to him. When postal workers began hand-delivering mail to urban centers during the Civil War, the shift made Americans view the mail as a pleasant surprise rather than a burdensome errand. As the postal system became more formalized and efficient, the cost of postage began dropping in the mid-1860s. The price drop made parents more comfortable with paying for stamps, and children began to view the postman as an actual conduit to the Jolly Old St. Nick.img_0372
  • St. Nicklaus’ arrival down chimneys to fill stockings hails from the Netherlands. In 1823, this tradition went mainstream with publication of what has now become a children’s classic, The Night Before Christmas.
  • The idea of Santa’s sleigh being drawn by reindeer was first made popular in Switzerland.
  • The first documented Christmas parade was reportedly held in Peoria, Illinois in 1888. Decorated with garland and red ribbons and pulled by a team of horses, a covered wagon rolls along Main Street in Peoria, Ill each November heralding Santa Claus’ arrival. For nearly 125 years, the parade has kicked off the start of the Christmas season, persevering through the 1929 stock market crash, blizzards and rainstorms. Even during World War II, when New York City’s famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was sidelined for three years, Peoria’s Thanksgiving weekend spectacle continued to bring holiday cheer.
  • img_0369Elf on a Shelf began as a book penned by a mother/daughter team over a cup of tea. The pair decided to write a book about their personal tradition of writing notes to an elf sent by Santa, who came to watch over them at Christmas time. A companion toy was created in 2005 and has already found his way into 17 percent of all American homes over the past 10 Christmas seasons.

 Chanukah

  • Often called the Festival of Lights, the holiday is celebrated with the lighting of the menorah, traditional foods, games and gifts. While most Jewish feasts and festivals can be traced to the New Testament, relatively new retail takes on Jewish holiday traditions are owed entirely to entrepreneurial ingenuity.
  • Mensch on a Bench was the brainchild of a rabbi who recently appeared on Shark Tank. During its first year in production in broad 2014, the product caught on with Jewish families, with $900,000 in sales.
  • Dreidels are traditional, but one company has is re-introduced them as spinning tops. Based on what they refer to as an “American vintage game,” the tops boast all new spinners made from “the finest quality aircraft grade stainless steel which is machined using state of the art CNC turning centers and precision balanced for a piece that will spin perfectly and last forever.”img_0370
  • Food Network has reinvented potato latkes to take them mainstream. Thanks to the popular network, people of all faiths and ethnicities are enjoying potato-pancake based recipes all year long.

Kwanzaa
A seven-day festival that celebrates African and African American culture and history, Kwanzaa is celebrated from 26 December to January 1.

  • Seven days of candles point to the principles of the holiday, which was created in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga.
  • At the first Kwanzaa Holiday Expo, held in 1993, ice cream magnates Ben and Jerry introduced sweet potato ice cream, while other exhibitors showcased dark-complexioned dolls, African art, Jamaican root tonic, Kente cloth neckties, handcrafted African roses and an odd contraption that gives a passable back massage.
  • Today, Kwanzaa is observed with African-centered books, cards and art objects and coloring contests for children.

Affordable Holiday Gifts On Target

Posted on Updated on

christmas-sack-964342_960_720According to the National Retailer’s Association, consumers will spend nearly four percent more this year on holiday gifts than they did in 2015. In fact, according to NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay, “All of the fundamentals are in a good place, giving strength to consumers and leading us to believe that this will be a very positive holiday season.

The NRF holiday sales forecast is based on an economic model which uses several indicators such as consumer credit, disposable personal income and previous monthly retail sales releases. Their data shows an average increase in holiday sales for the past 10 years of 2.5 percent.

More projections about Holiday Spending in 2016:person-on-package

  • Non-store sales should increase between 7 and 10 percent — to as much as $117 billion.
  • Projections released by PWC on October 4, 2016 put holiday spending at the highest level since the Great Recession.
  • Analysts with financial firm Apprisen say that the average U.S. consumer spent about $830 on Christmas gifts last year.
  • The International Council of Shopping Centers also gave a rosy projection, forecasting a 3.3% spending increase at physical stores, compared with a 2.2% gain in sales last year.
  • Most experts agree that online shopping will increase at a much quicker rate than sales in storefronts, as consumer confidence in e-commerce grows.

bundle-up-setAs you know when you own or manage a business, one of the first steps to take in regard to holiday shopping is to set a budget; doing this will help you stay on target, so you won’t overspend. Decide how much you can afford to invest for everyone on your business gift list: clients, prospects, service providers, and employees. Of course, you can always adjust budgets later. But setting spending caps will help you determine the types of gifts you buy after you have set budgets for each category.

No matter how much you plan to spend this holiday season, your promotional consultant can show you how to stay within that budget and give a gift that the recipient will enjoy and use!   They will show you an affordable, thoughtful gift to remember customers, clients, prospects and friends, while simultaneously reinforcing your brand. On Target Promotions in Riverside, California offers thousands of gift ideas to suit virtually any budget. Their promotional consultants are trained to choose “just the right gift” for your company’s needs.stuffed-animal

Holiday Gift Guide On Trend

Posted on Updated on

img_0344Have you ever opened a beautifully wrapped holiday gift only to find a present that leaves you scratching your head?

Whether the gifts you give this year are meant for a distant relative, your closest friend, a prospect, or your best client, don’t be the one who sends something weird. After all; the holidays are the perfect time to show people you care – by giving them something that will WOW! And when you plan ahead, you will be able to personalize your offerings, so the recipient will think of you every time they use your gift. To help, we looked to retail trends so you can formulate an impressive list of brand-able holiday swag.

Top 10 Holiday Gift-Giving Trendsimg_0341

1. Tech. Flexible Bluetooth keyboards, smartphone stands, cord organizers, laptop cases and tablet “skins,” flash drives, “tile” key-locators, automated vacuum cleaners, tech-touch gloves, virtual reality viewers, electronic readers, power chargers, etc.

2. Drones. While we could have classified dynamic-remotely-operated-navigation-equipment under “tech,” we think this gift-giving trend merits its own category, because drones are not just for paparazzi and film crews anymore. This is owed, in part, to the fact that many are surprisingly affordable.
img_0342
3. Wearables. You can’t go wrong with a T-shirt, sweatshirt or polo shirt. People love things they can wear. Also, don’t forget about wearable tech – fitness watches & trackers, Bluetooth speakers, headphones, etc. img_0343

4. Old School. This category signals a return to simpler times, before people used cellphones as MP3 players, video players and alarm clocks. If you opt to go with something nostalgic, the possibilities are virtually endless. Think desk clocks and desk sets or briefcases and pens or casual items like baseball caps, coffee mugs and candy. Or amp up your gift by assembling a “themed” basket, like “Movie Night,” – filled with fun items such as theater tickets, popcorn and bottles of soda, or “Golf Day,” featuring tee time treats, golf balls, course gift certificates and a branded golf towel. img_0339

5. Alcohol. These gifts go beyond bottles of wine or cases of scotch. Sophisticated gift-givers in 2016 are turning to a myriad of personalized alcohol-related ideas: bottle openers, wine aerators, bottle caddies, breath alcohol meters, flasks, bar sets, whiskey stones, cork cages, beer-chilling coaster sets, and customized shot glasses…to name a few. img_0337

6. Gift Cards. Neiman Marcus was the first company to make gift cards, which they sold in stores starting in 1994. But gift cards didn’t emerge as a “go-to” gift item until Blockbuster replaced their own rampantly counterfeited gift certificates with plastic cards. Once Starbucks entered the game in 2001, the rest – as they say – is history.

7. Executive Gifts. From classic desk sets to stylish totes to personalized styluses, business clients will appreciate your attention to detail. If the recipient is well traveled, consider a keyed laptop lock, an “anywhere” mouse, 3-D puzzles, a custom pen and pencil set, engraved paperweights, luggage tags, or a leather passport case.

8. Food Glorious Food. No matter the era, people love gifts they can eat. Did you know that you can brand items in virtually every category? To go high end, choose caviar tins and crackers with champagne. More low brow? How about jars of pesto or spaghetti sauce and dried pasta along with a bottle of Chianti. img_0338

9. Anti-Stress. What most professionals have in common is the propensity to feel stress.
To combat the trend, we recommend gifts designed to lighten the load. Stress balls, personal massagers, scented candles and sachets, tabletop fountains, and plants are just a few ideas for the entrepreneur on your list who has a lot on his or her plate.

10. High Style. Soft leather gloves, sunglasses and watches can melt the hearts of fashion-loving friends. So, to appeal to this crowd, order a fine leather wallet, custom cufflinks, a pocket watch, a leather portfolio or journal, or business card case.

Our choices this holiday season follow retail favorites. Since your clients and employees are already looking that direction, give them something that trends –beer flights, oil & vinegar sets, etched wine bottles, mini drones, or fitness trackers. Old school is also big, with holiday ornaments reemerging as gifts as well as holiday fundraisers.

Holiday Greeting On Target

Posted on Updated on

seed-paper-cardsIn this day of electronic everything, a trip to the mailbox may offer little more than bills and fliers addressed to: “current resident.” Greeting cards are the brilliant exception, as recipients celebrate the personal opportunity to open a beautiful, heartfelt, customized 3-D greeting to hold and prominently display.

According to the Greeting Card Association, the tradition of sending greeting cards can be traced back to the ancient Chinese, who exchanged messages of goodwill to celebrate the New Year, and to the early Egyptians, who conveyed their greetings on papyrus scrolls. By the early 15th century, handmade paper greeting cards were being exchanged in Europe.Envelope with blank message card

History of Greeting Cards:

  • By the early 1400s, handmade paper greeting cards were being exchanged in Europe.
  • The Germans are known to have printed New Year’s greetings from woodcuts as early as 1400.
  • Handmade paper Valentines were exchanged in various parts of Europe in the early to mid-1400s.
  • With the introduction of the postage stamp in the 1840s as well as advances in printing and mechanization, cards emerged from an expensive, handmade and hand-delivered gift to a popular, affordable means of personal communication.
  • The first known published Christmas card appeared in London in 1843, when Sir Henry Cole hired an artist to design a holiday card that he could send to his friends and acquaintances. Demand for similar cards grew, so Cole began selling them for one shilling each.White envelope on wooden background with pine cones and Christmas gift
  • As printing methods improved, Christmas cards became much more popular and were produced in large numbers from about 1860.Prensa Litografica
  • The first to bring greeting cards to America was a German immigrant named Louis Prang, whose Boston-based lithograph business succeeded, in part, because he expertly produced cards featuring the reproduction of famous paintings. In 1875, he introduced the first complete line of mass-produced Christmas cards to the American public.
  • In the early 1930s, American publishers adopted the use of color lithography, which propelled expansion of the U.S. greeting card industry.
  • During World War II, the industry rallied for the war effort, helping the government sell war bonds and providing cards for soldiers overseas.
  • By the 1950s, a long card with a short punch line (aka the studio card) firmly established the popularity of humor in American greeting cards.

Breast Cancer Awareness On Target

Posted on Updated on

breast cancer awareness designThroughout October, most Americans are “in the pink” thanks to the annual month-long Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. Developed in 1985 to increase awareness about the disease and raise funds for treatment and research, the observance is one of the most successful of its kind…with pink products popping up on everything from pens and paper cups to perfume and Porsches.

Over the past 31 years, major breast cancer organizations have raised billions of dollars for the disease which will effect one in eight women in the United States. Further statistics shed light on the reason so much attention is given to the disease:

  • In 2016, an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
  • About 2,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2016.
  • A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
  • For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
  • Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women.
  • In 2016, there are more than 2.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment.
  • A woman’s risk of breast cancer approximately doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • About 5-10% of breast cancers can be linked to gene mutations (abnormal changes) inherited from one’s mother or father.
  • The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older).Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon Background. Vector illustration

Breast Cancer Advocacy

While efforts to increase awareness of breast cancer can be traced back to 1913, ongoing organized campaigns to increase breast cancer awareness did not exist until the mid-1970s, when advocacy groups began to disseminate information about treatment options and to provide counseling services. The announcement that Betty Ford, the wife of then U.S. President Gerald Ford, had undergone breast cancer surgery in September of 1974 is credited with increasing public awareness of breast cancer and comfort with public discussions about the disease.

History of the Pink Ribbon

breast cancer emblemIn the early 1990s, a 68-year-old named Charlotte Haley began making peach ribbons by hand in her home because her daughter, sister, and grandmother had breast cancer. She distributed thousands of ribbons at supermarkets with cards that read: “The National Cancer Institute annual budget is $1.8 billion, only 5 percent goes for cancer prevention. Help us wake up our legislators and America by wearing this ribbon.”

As word spread, executives from Estée Lauder and Self magazine asked Haley for permission to use her ribbon. She refused, saying the companies were too commercial. But Self was determined to use the ribbon idea. So editors consulted with lawyers and were advised to choose another color. They opted for pink, because it is “soothing, comforting, and healing” — everything breast cancer is not. Soon Charlotte Haley’s grassroots peach ribbon was history, and the pink ribbon became the worldwide symbol for breast cancer.

Today, retailers, non-profit organizations and the general public use pink ribbons on products to promote events like concerts, wine tastings, bowling or golf tournaments, online sponsorships, marathons, triathlons and bike races…to name a few. Don’t pass up the opportunity to pick up some pink swag for your Breast Cancer Awareness event. There is still time to order if you act fast. If you can think it, we can pink it.
