Winter can be a hard season for lots of people. Between the colder weather, shorter daylight hours, and increased social isolation this year, many folks will feel the winter blues. Also known as Seasonal Affective Disorder, the wave of seasonal sadness that washes over people during the winter is totally normal. Still, it leaves many (including your clients and employees!) feeling anxious or hopeless. However, there are plenty of home remedies and actions that can be taken to beat those winter blues. Here are a few of our favorite promo products for boosting moods and banishing the dreaded seasonal depression:
Sound Therapy Salt Lamp
Perfect as an employee or customer appreciation gift, this logoed salt lamp offers a warm glow to any room. With soothing sound therapy features built-in, your recipients won’t have to pull out their phone and queue up their Spotify sleep playlist to get comfy. This lamp will soothe them into an anxiety-free evening with relaxing sounds and glow. Plus, Himalayan salt rocks are thought to reduce positive ions in the air and freshen an environment.
Though the sunny hours of the day may be shorter, plants can still thrive – especially when they’re suctioned to a window! This indoor garden can be stuck to magnetic surfaces like refrigerators or attached to windows with suction cups. Your clients will find plenty of joy in planting seeds in dirt, both of which are included in this kit, and watching them grow. Having plants indoors has been scientifically proven to improve mood, making this a great promo for the winter months when morale is low!
Self-care is another effective way to combat seasonal depression. Creating a sense of peace at home, where many people will probably be spending a lot more time this year, can banish unpleasant feelings. That’s where these beautifully branded candles come in. Handing these out to your prospects will help them curate a warm and inviting home that smells nice and gives a gift that goes beyond the candle itself: relaxation. With your logo on both the luxury box and glass candle jar, they’ll know just who to thank for the lifted mood.
This one is a no-brainer: it’s cold in winter! Unfortunately, the cold weather is a contributing factor to the winter blues. When the cold is nipping at your toes, even at home, who would want to go anywhere? A warm, branded blanket makes the perfect gift for customers and employees alike. Their feet will stay cozy under this plush promotional product that’s sure to see lots of use.
