As 2021 approaches, organizations searching for creative ways to connect customers and employees to their brand are relying on great company swag more than ever. 

Swag provides a physical connection between people and brand that is so important in this era of social distancing, remote work and virtual everything. Great swag has the potential to engage, delight and endear: the trick is finding products people will actually want to keep!

Luckily, we’re here to help! This list goes over some of the best custom swag and gifts we know remote employees and customers will love in the coming year. Our choices are based on what was popular in 2020, as well as what we predict will match the trends of the new year. From onboarding kits for new remote hires, to luxury tech gifts for top clients, we have a little bit of everything. Whatever it is you’re looking for, Swag.com makes it easy to shop, store and ship your swag anywhere around the globe:

1. Remote Employee Swag Kits

Onboarding new talent in a remote work world is difficult. Without a physical office, new remote employees can easily feel disconnected and isolated from their coworkers and company as a whole. Designing a meaningful onboarding kit chalked full of thoughtfully chosen items is essential to helping employees feel like a part of something real!

We can help you customize products that make working from home comfortable while instilling a sense of pride in your brand. Our great selection of custom apparel, WFH accessories and custom tech give you full control to make new employees’ first experience with your company a good one. Our Swag distribution platform lets you design fully custom onboarding kits down to the boxes they come in. We can store them until you’re ready, then ship them to as many addresses as you need, whenever you want.
