The act of giving and receiving is gratifying, but the process of buying gifts for others does come difficult to some. Group gatherings like a bachelorette party or a corporate outing with employees to help build team dynamics can add to the pressure.
No matter the occasion, a gift is an opportunity to show those close to us we appreciate their company and the joy they add to our lives. When gifting in large volumes you’ll need to take several variables into consideration, and these won’t always match up against one another. However, good news is at DiscountMugs we have a knack for life events such as these.
Although there’s still snow pilling on some parts of the country, Spring will officially arrive in a little less than three weeks from today. As with all things, there’s a season for new beginnings, and if you haven’t already, it’s time to leave the winter blues behind to start thinking about spring promotion approaches and ideas.
Winter is perhaps the most severe of the seasons (however, depending on where you are, some will argue summer often competes for first place). Nevertheless, there’s something romantic and peaceful about a snowfall, a quiet crystal night and frosty windows, that continues to capture the imagination of humans and influence their behavior.
While it is true that the way we react to our surroundings is in fact determined by our experiences, you can still make the most of the frosty season no matter how icy the plunging temperatures get this year.
The winds of winter are here. Long gone are short sleeves and tank tops, and everywhere we go we see layers and sweaters keeping our peers warm during the day. With the season, we can look towards a cozier time indoors but also the opportunity to enjoy outdoor sports games like football and soccer with a more dramatic effect.
According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), 46% of Americans were projected to watch the Big Game at home or a friend’s house in 2018. Although it may be early to call in for numbers this year, everyone knows the game of games is bound to bring in large crowds and you deserve a slice out of that pie. A comfortable sofa can and will be your prime competitor on football’s biggest game night, but our football inspired promo ideas can get them to ditch the couch. Get everyone excited with our promos and event ideas and bring the atmosphere of America’s super Sunday to your event.

Parents everywhere are spending the big bucks in family vacations, and even if you’re staying home this summer, keeping your kids entertained doesn’t come at a cheap price. Don’t even get me started on sending them off to college for the first time – there isn’t enough time in the day with all the planning and shopping you need to get through to make sure they’re all set for their first day. For that reason, back to school is simply our favorite season.
Completely devoted to good times and fun, summer is probably a favorite among the seasons for most people.
