Updated April 2023
Mind-body wellness is a top priority for a growing number of U.S. adults. Recent research – including the 2023 US Mindbody Wellness Index – indicates that Americans are becoming more health conscious. A nationwide survey conducted by Ipsos, a marketing research firm, found that “62% of Americans agree that their health is more important to them now than before the COVID-19 pandemic.” Immune system health and mental wellness are of particular importance to a significant percentage of Americans right now, especially women.
Health and wellness swag is a cost-effective way for businesses to make a meaningful connection with health-conscious customers, sales prospects, and employees. Wellness promotional products – aka swag – can help demonstrate your regard for the emotional and physical wellbeing of your staff and customers – and provide them with incentives and tools to support their wellness journey.
How do Companies use Wellness Swag?
Many businesses use wellness swag to motivate their employees and promote healthy habits and self-care in the workplace. Some companies gift wellness kits to employees as incentives or rewards for participating in workplace wellness programs. Wellness gifts for employees like aromatherapy candles and stress relief kits can also help promote mental health initiatives in the workplace. And high end swag like custom fitness trackers or smart watches and name brand athletic apparel and accessories are healthy gifts for staff that can be used as wellness prizes for employee health fairs.
Established healthcare companies – as well as startups in the rapidly growing health & wellness industry – also need creative, healthy giveaways for direct mailing campaigns, health fairs, and other community events.
What’s the Best Swag for Health & Wellness Promotions?
Bestselling, customizable health & wellness swag includes sports water bottles, yoga & fitness mats, running armbands, sun visors, moisture-wicking performance wear, hiking backpacks, cooling towels, massage foam rollers, stress toys, and adult coloring books. These popular and affordable promotional health products also work well in a wellness swag bag or health fair goodie bag.
