Summer will be here before we know it - and with it, companies are preparing for outdoor events. These types of outings are great opportunities to create promotional event kits for your employees and boost brand identity. 

Use this guide to build a memorable promo kit for outdoor summer events.

Ingredients for an Outdoor Summer Event Kit

1. Water Bottle

Water bottles are a tried-and-true promotional product, and for good reason. This practical product gets a lot of use and longevity. Prep your employees for the summer heat with proper hydration.

Any water bottle will do the trick, but we like this one from Crest because the cap doubles as a clip - which is a great way to ensure bottles don’t get lost during events.

2. Mesh Cap

Caps are another crowd-pleasing promotional product option. They’re a great way for your employees to rep your brand while keeping cool in the sun.

3. Outdoor Essentials Kit

Enhance your summer event kit with travel-sized health essentials in a reusable container. This kit from Clear Creek includes attractive, easy-to-use sprays of sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug repellent, insect bite relief, and after-sun relief.

4. Cross-Body Bag

No outdoor kit is complete without a bag, but drawstring bags are overdone. Instead, pair your products with a cross body bag - something that is trendy, your employees are less likely to already own, and won’t slow them down during the event.
