Prom: one of the most memorable and exciting times for any high school senior. It only comes around once in a lifetime, so people want to make sure that all of the prom planning is just right. Therefore, anyone who is in charge of planning the event pays extra close attention to the event where it will be held, the food that will be served, the music that will be played, and the transportation that will be provided. And of course, there is the special after prom event which usually lasts through the end and possibly into the end of the weekend. With all this planning ahead, there is only one thing that is left to be focused on – prom favors.
These prom night giveaways are put in place as event accessories which help support the level of fun and excitement that prom goers will be able to enjoy. Each time you put some prom promotional items in the hand of a high school student, they have a tangible reminder of the special night that they can save and look back on in five, ten, or twenty years.If you really want to make prom as memorable an event as possible, check out some of these awesome prom favors below:
1. Galactic Balloons

2. Round Bubble Tote

As with the balloons above, the circular bubble tote can have anything you want imprinted on it including a graduation year or school mascot. The item simply hangs around your neck so you can continue to move around while you play with it.
3. 2011 Key Chain

That’s why the 2011 Key Chain is the perfect thing. This silver charm will attach to your car keys via the split ring so that prom goers can see it every day.

Next Friday, April 22 is Earth Day, one of the biggest awareness events of the year. Since so many people across the world, it is definitely worthy of mentioning at the Promotional Items Buzz. So let’s start off by doing a quick history on Earth Day and what the goals of it are. Then we will check out some of the best ways to promote Earth Day, and some fantastic promotional items which can be used to help support it.
Earth Day was created by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970 for the purpose of raising awareness about the health of the planet. Senator Nelson recognized early on that the “green” movement would be supported the strongest by college students, hence the reason why April 22 was chosen as the day for Earth Day (this date is after spring break but before final exams).Since 1970, Earth Day has become an international movement in which people focus on what they can do to make the planet better. Events are held throughout the United States especially with the main purpose of organizing as many people in one place as possible. Some of these events are created simply to educate people about how they can be more “green” in their daily lives. Examples of these are benefit concerts and festivals like the San Francisco Earth Day Festival. Other Earth Day events are more active, where volunteers actually participate in clean-ups or tree plantings. As everyone knows, power is in numbers. So any Earth Day event where as many people as possible can get involved gives the planet the best chance of getting back into shape.
This is where you come into play – if you are planning on getting people out to an Earth Day event this year, you need all the help that you can get. The thing about Earth Day is this: lots of people have the desire to put their energy in a positive place. They want to volunteer for an Earth Day event, they just don’t have the time to do all the research. You have the power to steer them in the right direction.How is it done? The most effective way to get the word out is always with a tangible reminder. Any type of promotional items that you can give people with an Earth Day theme will open up their minds about what they can do to help. The Earth Day giveaways have all different types of functions and appearances, but the main purpose is always the same: to get people out of their homes and to your Earth Day event on April 22.
Plenty of Earth Day promotional products are made from eco-friendly materials like corn plastic or bamboo, to demonstrate the commitment that people should be making to the planet. So a sports bottle made from recycled plastic or a golf tee carved out of biodegradable wood are both fantastic choices. Some other Earth Day gifts like custom seed packets or recycled pencils will also help get the word out about your event.Make sure to choose the right Earth Day giveaways so that you can get as many people as possible to participate in the festivities this year!
