New Year = New Focus

We’re all looking forward to 2021 and saying a not-so-fond goodbye to 2020. A new year always brings a sense of new beginnings and fresh opportunities, and this rings even truer this year.

Now is the perfect time to begin planning for 2021 and getting those New Year’s resolutions in place!

We’ve come up with our top 10 resolutions to make your 2021 a year to remember for all the right reasons. With the ideal branded products for each one, you can help your clients and staff achieve their goals in 2021 - and make a big impact with your brand.

  1. Get Fit
    Smart Fitness Tracker

    It’s no surprise that getting in shape is the most popular New Year’s resolution of all – 47% of people say that they plan to exercise more after the holidays. After our festive indulgences, we want to get back to feeling fresh and energized — and nothing beats exercise for that.

    Keep track of your exercise with this splash resistant activity tracker that counts your steps, distance, calories burned, and records your sleeping pattern. The wristband has a dynamic heart rate measuring function to improve your sport performance and a sensor to monitor your blood pressure.

  2. Drink More Water
    Columbia® Tritan Water Bottle

    During the day we often become so busy that we forget to do the most basic things - like drink enough water. Research has shown that even a body water loss of 1-2%, which is considered mild dehydration already, impairs cognitive performance and your general health. Make remembering easier with an attractive water bottle you can carry around with you.

  3. Eat Healthier
    Bamboo Fiber Lunch Box with Cutting Board Lid

    Improving our diets is another one of the most common New Year’s resolutions every year. As we’ve all experienced, when you are having a hectic day it’s very easy to skip lunch or grab whatever snacks you can on-the-go.

    Preparation is key. A lunchbox encourages you to pack a healthy lunch for work and keep nutritious munchies on hand for better snacking throughout the day. By preparing your meals at home, you can save time and money and take control of your diet!

    This lunchbox is a favorite since it’s both stylish and constructed from sustainable bamboo and polypropylene.

  4. Support charities and social causes
    Split Recycled Cotton Drawstring Bag

    Charitable giving doesn’t always mean donating your money or time. A little extra awareness in your choices can go a long way. Choose a tote or backpack that matches your style and is large enough to carry all your daily necessities.

    This eco-friendly drawstring backpack, made from pre-consumer and recycled cotton, is part of 1% For The Planet, which gives 1% of sales to non-profits dedicated to protecting the planet.

  5. Get Organized
    Post-it Organizational Notes

    Staying on top of things can help minimize stress, keep our energies focused, and keep us feeling positive.

    If getting organized and staying organized is on your list for 2021, then start writing things down. Take advantage of organizational notes or use branded calendars and planners. They make very welcome gifts that guarantee year-round brand exposure.

  6. Think More Eco
    Recycled PET Auto Open Umbrella

    It’s more important than ever to do our part for the environment. Lucky for us, it doesn’t have to be difficult. Thanks to growing demand, there are eco-friendly alternatives for many everyday items like this umbrella, made from 100% recycled PET material that also donates 1% of sales to 1% For The Planet. As an added bonus, umbrellas generate over 1,100 impressions over their lifetime, providing excellent exposure for your brand!

  7. Read More or Listen to Audiobooks
    Desktop Bluetooth Speaker and Wireless Charging Station

    Reading does incredible things for your brain – it increases your vocabulary and comprehension, helps to prevent age-related cognitive decline, and increases your ability to empathize. It can also reduce stress and help you sleep better. Whatever your interest is, there’s a book you’ll love!

    Audiobooks are a great way to get the benefits of literature even when you don’t have the time to sit down with a book. Wear a pair of headphones during your exercise or connect to a Bluetooth speaker, and you can listen to anything from your favorite autobiography to Stephen Fry narrating Harry Potter.

  8. Explore New Hobbies
    Office Fun Game Set

    Is there a hobby or pursuit you have always been interested in but never quite found the time to explore? 2021 is the year to go for it!

    Interested in trying your hand at arts, cooking or a new sport? Why not improve your chess game? After the success of Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit, sales of chess sets went up 87% here in the US. Learning or rediscovering a pastime can help improve your work-life balance, especially if working from home is making it harder for you to stop work at the end of the day.

  9. Organize Your Mind
    Northwoods Journal

    The increased awareness about mental health and wellbeing in recent years has been most welcome. Benefit from the clarity that calming and organizing your mind brings, whatever your line of work. One popular way to find that clarity is through journaling. This branded journal can help you to get your thoughts down on paper and get things off your chest. You might also uncover a great idea to take your brand to the next level.

  10. Spend Less Time on Your Phone
    15W Wireless Charger & Sanitizer Box

    We often find ourselves glued to our phones, often without realizing it. You know how it goes. It starts with checking email, then checking LinkedIn and before we know it, we’ve been mindlessly scrolling through our Instagram feed for hours.

    It’s recommended that we spend no more than two hours per day on our phones, but even average users are scrolling for nearly five hours per day! Make it easier to cut down on screen time by keeping your phone out of sight when you’re not using it - and definitely at night before bedtime. This handy wireless charger and sanitizer box has a lid to keep your phone charged and you can put your phone inside the box to get it cleaned and out of your hand.
