Swag for life: 5 swag ideas for sales kick-offs

As anyone who regularly organises events knows, bringing the team together for the first big event of the year requires a lot of planning.

You want it to be memorable. You want it to be productive. You want it to be fun. Most of all, you want your team to come away from it feeling a sense of shared purpose and looking forward to taking on the challenges of the year.

And while team swag is a great way to help bring people together, organising it can be a painful process. Sub-par swag often ends up being left behind at the venue, or ignored.

With our powerful gifting platform, organising your sales kickoff swag couldn’t be easier. Our platform streamlines the process, and allows you to choose, create, and schedule fully branded gift invites in minutes so your team swag can land before, during or after the event – for less waste, and more brand love.

If you've been underwhelmed by event merch that just feels ‘meh’, you’re in the right place: considered, quality gifts are our specialty (just ask Intercom!).

Read on for five of our favorite highly customisable swag ideas – all with a focus on quality, sustainability, and all guaranteed to be loved.

Sweatshirts by Stanley Stella

A Canvas of Creativity

There’s nothing cozier or easier to wear than a super-soft, snuggly sweatshirt, and it’s even better when you can be sure it’s been made sustainably, with people and planet top-of-mind at every stage of the process.

Stanley Stella makes on-trend, sustainable clothing using GOTS-certified organic cotton, recycled synthetic materials and environmentally-responsible dyes. They have close relationships with all the factories they use, ensuring fair wages and working conditions for all their partners.

With the ability to add a screenprint or embroidery, you can add your logo, team slogan, or even a motivational quote to inspire your sales team. It's more than just a sweatshirt; it's a wearable piece of motivation.
