Few more days to go and it’s Christmas! Before your business officially enjoys a holiday break, make sure that you leave your clients a gift to take away while you’re on vacation. But if you can’t think of a way to stay in their minds during holidays, we’ve got a promotional marketing tip for you!
Are you familiar with the 12 Days of Christmas carol? Yes, our tip has something to do with this popular song. The popular Christmas song can give you an idea on how to stay in contact with everyone from the first day of Christmas up to the twelfth day.
You can send gifts to their homes on a specific day of the week. Or you can email blast a newsletter that features a particular item for each day.
To guide you in your 12 Days of Christmas promotion, take a look at these twelve promotional items that perfectly match the twelve merry days.
Let’s get started!
Day 1 – Partridge in a Pear Tree
December 25 marks the first day of the 12 days of Christmas song. In the famous festive carol, the giver sent the love of his life a partridge in a pear tree.
Well, you can’t gift your beloved clients a partridge—not unless they love birds. But you can gift them a towel or blanket with an embroidered partridge. If you want, you can also send them a pear-scented lotion or candle.
Day 2 – Two Turtle Doves
Gifting your prospects two turtle doves on the second day of Christmas isn’t a stellar promotional marketing tactic. Sure, they can pet them but they can’t use them all year long.
Why don’t you give them something with a bird motif? A home décor like a dove figurine or a turtle candy, chocolate turtle cheesecake works as a great holiday present.
Day 3 – Three French Hens
What to give on the third day of Christmas? Three French hens? Nope. Forget that idea. Where exactly can you get those chickens and how can they reach their doorsteps?
Give them promotional items that follow the French chicken theme. It can be home accents or chicken-shape stress toys. Not only that. A BBQ grill can also suffice as a gift since hens are best when grilled! J
Day 4 – Four Calling Birds
Same goes on the fourth day. You can give anything with a bird motif instead of sending real four calling birds.
There are a lot of gift options. Choose from imprinted mugs, notebooks, stationery products, aprons, table linens, and more.
Day 5 – Five Golden Rings
Sending your dear clients five golden rings this Christmas? Oops. That promotional marketing strategy can cost you a few thousand pounds.
We know you don’t want to get your pockets emptied. Opt for a less expensive but equally luxurious gift like some jewellery or a wristwatch.
Day 6 – Six Geese a Laying
On the 6th day of Christmas, the giver in the song sent his loved one six geese. Would you dare give your customers six alive or cooked geese?
Perhaps not. Go for the second option. Purchase promotional items with geese designs like aprons, linens and textiles. You can also consider cookbooks with egg recipes.
Day 7 – Seven Swans a Swimming
Seven swans as a holiday present? Again, this isn’t such a clever idea. Your target recipients may not have enough space to keep those large aquatic birds.
So it’s recommended to search for custom gifts in the shape of a swan. Among the gift ideas include figurines, ornaments and plush toys.
Day 8 – Eight Maids a Milking
The eight maids in the 12 Days of Christmas song represent the eight blessings that Jesus Christ gave in the Sermon on the Mount.
So you have two gift ideas for the 8th day: eight assorted gifts or milk special foods. The latter offers a more low-cost option since you can simply purchase milk items like bubble baths and chocolates.
Day 9 – Nine Ladies Dancing
Can’t think of a gift alternative to nine ladies dancing? Then try this promotional marketing idea: find a present that’s associated with dancing and music.
Top of the list is a music box since it displays a lady dancing to a lovely tune. You can also go for Ballerina outfits, slipper flats and CD cases, among others.
Day 10 – Ten Lords a Leaping
It’s the third to the last day of Christmas. If you think, ten Lords a-leaping seems like a hard gift idea, you’re mistaken.
The term “Lord” can connote supremacy. Meaning, you can send items with an authoritative appeal like a crown. And since a frog leaps, a frog-shaped toy or stress item makes a perfect gift choice for the 10th day.
Day 11 and 12 – Eleven Pipers Piping & Twelve Drummers Drumming
We’re down to the last two! On the eleventh and twelfth day of Christmas, the giver sent the love of his life pipers piping and drummers drumming.
What about you? Well, you can send your clients music instruments. But that’s a little pricey. So purchase instrument-shaped items like key rings and fridge magnets instead.
