Picnics – No ants in my pants!

With winter finally behind us, it is time to start thinking about outdoor activities. Yay! Let’s get some vitamin D! I love being outdoors. I like running with my crazy, uncontrollable chocolate lab. Did I mention he was crazy? Yeah, he actually walks me around. I love biking, or hiking, and I have definitely been known to do absolutely nothing except lounge around on my back porch while drinking one too many pale ales. The outdoor activity I like to do most though? PICNICKING! Who doesn’t like to go on a picnic? Ah, I can just picture it now. A delicious sandwich is moments away from hitting my mouth.  An ice cold beer is chilling in my cooler. The warm breeze is flowing through my hair. Tall grass is slowly itching my legs, and ants are crawling up my shorts. Wait. WHAT?!?! Ants up my shorts? Okay, I can see why picnics are not everyone’s thing. BUT, thanks to ShowYourLogo.com, and its low cost travel products, anyone can have the perfect picnic this season.


First things first. We need to get rid of those ants in my pants. I mean, what if they are fire ants? Then, my pants would be on fire!! So, I need to get a blanket. Not just any blanket though. I only have two hands, and if my infant son and previously mentioned dog come along, I really have no hands. So, I need something with a strap to rest on my shoulder. I recommend the custom printed roll up blanket . It has a velcro closure and is perfect to sit on during a any outdoor event. It will be particularly hard for the ants to climb up on the blanket, and the itchy grass will no longer irritate my legs. #Winning!


Next, of course I have a salad. Regular Tupperware just doesn’t get the job done. I have no where to put my dressing!! This is why the 3 piece salad shaker  is a must for any traveler. This handy 4 cup plastic container includes a plastic fork, and a removable 4 table spoon salad dressing holder. Now, I wouldn’t eat salad any other way.


Subsequently, after eating, we want nothing more than an ice cold beverage. Ever have a cooler packed with a bunch of cans, and when you open the bag you come to realize that all of your cans have toppled over and have been partying without you? Ever open said can and gotten drenched because of this shaken disaster?  Yes, me too. The round insulated cooler bag has rid me of hyper carbonation by allowing me to pack the cans in a round formation, keeping all of them compact until we are ready to drink them. I can fit up to 12 cans plus ice and everything stays nice and cold thanks to the foil laminated PE lining.


The last essential for this perfect picnic is a portable Bluetooth speaker. From the relaxing sounds of Jimmy Buffet, to the dance party jams of Jay-Z, sync this little guy up to your device for big sound of whatever music you prefer! Can’t connect? Don’t worry, this product also has an auxiliary input jack for connecting non- Bluetooth devices. Can’t miss a call? You are covered, as this product also has a microphone and answering capabilities.


Looking for something to do this summer? Go have a picnic! Now that you have the best how to guide listing the best picnic products out there, this will be one picnic you will want to repeat for years to come!

Weather-Inspired Promotional Products

Oswego FloodingIf we printed on inflatable emergency rafts, I might begin with those as a useful promotional product of choice for Chicagoans this week. It might be a better way to get to work. All reports indicate we’ve had approximately five inches of rain in a 24 hour period, leading to impassable streets, bursting pipes, flooded basements, and a lake on my front lawn. The Fox River is churning and gushing and looks like it could pass for Class III and IV whitewater in many places. Wow, that’s a lot of rain!

If you’re expecting “weather” where you live, help prepare your customers and clients with promotional products they can use to be prepared to tough out the elements. Spring can be brutal!
