Getting Excited for the Return of Spring!

Now that we have switched over for Daylight Saving Time, we have another seasonal milestone to celebrate: the Spring Equinox (also known as the Vernal Equinox), which arrives this Sunday, March 20. Although the forecast here in New York indicates that a stubborn cold snap to come our way, lovely weather cannot be too far behind. Some trees are beginning to bud after the balmy temperatures we’ve had, and before long everyone will be out celebrating the return of bright, beautiful flowers like tulips and cherry blossoms.

With everyone soon to be in a good mood, it’s a perfect opportunity to share seasonal gifts that mark the occasion. You might not immediately associate promotional products with springtime, but you’d be surprised how many thoughtful and fitting choices there are to pick from. If you know anyone who has a green thumb, you could outfit them nicely with a little planter kit, a plant watering can, gardening tools, and seeds to grow wildflowers for their home or herbs for their kitchen. There are even neat seeded bookmarks and seeded coasters available for folks who enjoy a good book or a pleasant drink now and then.

BD80E83B-0275-453B-9497-137D6ABD4471For people who love to be out in nature, there are plenty of gifts for the outdoors that would make their day: comfortable folding chairs, picnic baskets, picnic blankets, coolers, and water bottles make for a relaxing outing at the park or beach. You can even stock the picnic baskets with cheese or meat sets to complete the care package. Lightweight jackets, sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen make it more comfortable to be outdoors when the sun is shining brightly or the wind is picking up just a bit. Insect repellent and lanterns will also come in handy if you’re planning to be out in the evening. And last but not least, a trusty umbrella is always good to have at your side once April showers arrive!

Hydrate with Branded Bottles

Ok, ok, so we all know that current FAA regulations prohibit bringing liquid with you through security in all but the smallest (3.4 ounces or less) containers. You would think that those of us who travel frequently have it down to a science, and um, most of us do, but some of us are sometimes caught off guard and have, on more than one occasion (and yes, we know, we may be sharing too much information here and losing your respect and admiration)…lost valuable beauty products due to size of containers. Ugh. Terrible. and embarrassing. And while losing a bottle of water isn’t as bad as losing miracle potions for the face, it isn’t fun, and it does happen.

Well, Virgin America has launched a campaign with branded bottles and “hydration stations” to help us cut down on use of plastic water bottles, and avoid having water bottles confiscated, thus being forced to buy ransom-priced airport water.

And now you can do the same by providing your customers and clients with branded water bottles that carry your company name or logo, that can be carried through airport security empty and filled up at the first water fountain encountered, or at obe of Virgin America’s hydration stations atSan Francisco International Airport’s Green Terminal.

You know what Madonna used to say, “Like a Virgin….”

And in case it happens to you sometimes, too, the FAA website has complete list of carry-on regulations.
