1. Fitness Trackers

For a more high-end event, or an event that focuses on health and wellness, surprise each guest with a customized fitness tracker.

Fitness tracking is a hot commodity and chances are, a large percentage of your guests incorporate some form of technology into their fitness plan, whether it be recording hourly heart rates or simply meeting a daily step goal. A variety of fitness tracker brands can be found for about $25 to $130 per tracker at Best Buy or on Amazon.

2. Travel Chargers

If the event includes a large group of fast paced individuals or companies that are always on the move, consider branded charging devices.

Travel chargers are a handy and reliable gift that will be put to good use by all. You can find a variety of travel charging devices at Amazon for as low as $10! More advanced portable chargers can be purchased through wireless phone companies.

Order these devices in a variety of colors and let guests pick their favorite, be sure your method of branding is visible and pleasing to the eye.

For a quick and easy-to-order gift idea, give adhesive wallets for cell phones a try. These card holders are small envelope-like pouches that stick to the back of almost any phone case, securing it in place.

For busy millennials, this quick access gadget is a real time saver. Phone card holders are great for storing credit cards, subway and bus passes, licenses, and any other cards or cash needed on a daily basis.

This is a great low-cost and lightweight item that can be ordered in bulk.
