12 Patriotic Promotional Items from Pens to Pom Poms

The Fourth of July brings with it a lot of fun for everyone–and that makes it a great time to promote your company, cause, or campaign.

Maybe you’re passionate about patriotism and want your company’s name in on the action. Maybe you’re running for office and want to leave something in every hand you shake. Maybe your company manufactures in the USA and you want to scream it from the rooftops! Maybe you love a good holiday and this one rocks them all.

Whatever your motivation, it’s a great idea to promote on Independence Day, when the good vibes are flowing. The research isn’t surprising to anyone who’s paid $10 for deep fried, bacon-wrapped butter at the county fair or filled a suitcase full of trinkets on vacation: If we’re in a good mood we’re more open-minded, less critical, and more likely to seek new experiences—like, for instance, your product or service.

The positive feelings around Independence Day extend to positive feelings about your brand—that is, if your name’s in the game. So throw your promotional hat in the Independence Day ring with some personalized patriotic gifts this Fourth of July.

Following are 12 Independence Day promotional marketing ideas, handpicked by us. Some are more business-minded, while others focus on parades and picnics. From customized American flag pens to Fourth of July sunglasses with your logo on the arm—your recipients will associate your brand with patriotic spirit and Independence Day fun. Customize the product that suits your style!
