It is evident how the coronavirus pandemic has transformed nearly every aspect of our world. From our day-to-day routine to general business operations, everything has since taken a dramatic shift. Now, more than two years into the Covid-19 pandemic, there's light for some at the end of the tunnel. With several rounds of vaccination, the worst of the pandemic is over.
Given the stabilised situation, we have witnessed the easing of local community Safe Management Measures and border controls — from safe distancing to capacity limits for certain settings, to finally being able to be outdoor and travel abroad with a peace of mind — there seems to be this unspoken sigh of relief among us all.

Today, many businesses and organisations are constantly figuring out ways to use the pandemic recovery opportunity to accelerate their performance and, hopefully, prosperity for the next normal. Being able to be out and about presents many opportunities for promotional products to take centre stage — since people will be relaxing by the beach, planning for picnics in the parks, or having the very much missed backyard barbeque parties for some get-together.
What better timing for your promotional merchandise to be part of these outdoor sessions — where you can get your brand out there (in the open). Beat the (summer) outdoor-y heat, and it's time to select products that are both practical and stylish. Think promotional gifts for your marketing campaigns, giveaway swags at an outdoor event, or limited-time offers. Let's bring in the heat with our top 10 best (and refreshing) picks for outdoor promotional gift ideas that will get your brands seen and remembered.

Make a lasting impression, create a stronger relationship
One way of connecting with your customers and clients is by showing your appreciation for their loyalty. And one of the most accessible methods is through gifts. The more personalised the gift is, the more exclusive it gets, and the stronger the brand loyalty. In DTC World, we are dedicated to thinking in the best interest of your brand and business — that's why we made it our mission to find the best-suited gift ideas to complement your marketing campaigns. Whether it's gift with purchase ideas, or licensed merchandise, or unique gift designs with highly customised elements, speak to us — and we'll fill you in on the endless ideas that you can explore.
In recent years, with all the buzz and frenzy surrounding sustainability and eco-friendliness, companies are gradually exploring greener alternatives when it comes to gift ideas — to #breakfreefromplastic. That said, understanding and having the right knowledge about the source of the materials is one of the many key considerations for the 'plastic-free' initiative, too.
We place significant importance on the 'end-to-end' approach, which we strive to achieve at DTC World — from the materials we source to the manufacturing of the products. (You can always read more here, about our company's fair bit towards the worthy cause of a greener planet. Alternatively, just give us a buzz to find out more about how you can go greener with your marketing campaigns.)
To stay fresh and on top of mind for your customers, it is important to offer them quality promotional items.

And, let's not forget about practicality and durability. Keep that in mind when you brainstorm for your next marketing campaign and the list of giveaway ideas to connect with your customers.
In addition, if you could insert the eco-friendly message, we believe this will make your whole marketing campaign more meaningful and successful, in the long run. Create a better world with better brand messaging — and enjoy more sales in the process. Worth the effort, wouldn't you agree?
