Finally 2022 is around the corner. Because of the continuing pandemic, our way of life has evolved, and more and more individuals are accustomed to working from home.

The promotional products industry has gone through a lot of changes over the last couple of years. With the increase in social media, virtual events, and environmental awareness, we have seen major shifts in how promotional items are used and what they represent. What does this mean for promotional goods in 2022? Here are some latest trends we forecast for 2022.

Work from Home Products

One of the most significant changes in promotional products over the last few years is the increase in work from home items. With more and more people working remotely, rather than an office, promotional companies are starting to focus on products that help employees be productive while working from home.

  • Calendars

promotional desk calendars are super popular because they enable people to stay organized while allowing them to show off their personalities.

  • Notebooks

promotional notebooks are also a hot item because they help individuals stay productive. It's hard to resist taking notes when you have acute or funny notebooks sitting on your desk!

Virtual Event Giveaways

Since the omicron is spreading so quickly at the moment. In the promotional products industry, we have seen a major shift in how promotional items are used and what they represent. We believe this trend will continue into 2022 with more focus on virtual online events such as e-webinars, virtual trade shows, and online training sessions than physical events.

Thus, the virtual event giveaways will also continue to be popular in 2022. It is a great way for you to reward your loyal customers and even attract new ones through social media marketing or email campaigns or virtual events. Just make sure that the items you give away are really fun, meaningful and inspiring.

As more and more people spend time on their phones or laptops instead of physically going out, they're looking for ways to connect with others online.

  • Headphones

The headphone is a perfect promotional product for virtual events. It can be used for voice or video conferences, so it doubles as a promotional item while promoting your business' brand online.

  • Phone Stand

A phone stand is an excellent way to show your customers that you value their time and convenience.

Pandemic Awareness Items

With the pandemic reaching new highs every year, we're seeing more and more people aware of what's going on around them - both in their personal lives and with the promotional products industry. In 2022, we expect to see an increased demand for items promoting pandemic awareness.

Some promotional companies have already started producing pandemic promotional gifts and clothing to raise additional revenue while helping organizations who are trying to fight this disease on a larger scale. This trend will continue into 2022 as awareness and education about the pandemic continue to grow.

  • Silicone Wristbands

Silicone wristbands with a logo or message can be used as awareness items for promotional events in support of nonprofits fighting against the pandemic. This is especially effective because it encourages people who wear them to share what they believe in on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter - further promoting your promotional event and the cause it supports.

Health-Related Products

Whether it is a promotional reusable water bottle or an eyeglass cleaner, people are more concerned about their well-being than ever before. So make sure to include custom promotional products like these into your marketing mix as the pandemic spreads further around the globe and we all need to take better care of our health.

  • Face Mask

The custom Face mask is one of the top products that are always in demand in case pandemic hit the world. Wearing a custom face mask can help us to better protect our health. Moreover, face masks are also very effective custom promotional gifts that will bring people closer together when disaster hit the world in 2022.

  • Massage Equipment

As people become more and more stressed out, promotional massage equipment will be in high demand. This type of gift is perfect for spas, health clubs and other businesses that offer relaxation services. Promote your business as a haven for stress relief with promotional massage equipment!

Technology-Related Products

With technology becoming more and more a part of our everyday lives, it is no surprise that technology-related promo products will be popular in 2022. This could include anything from promotional phone cases to earbuds. As the world becomes increasingly connected, there will be no shortage of promotional products to appeal to tech-savvy consumers.

  • Phone cases

Phone cases are a great way to show your customers that you understand and appreciate their love of technology. Cases can be designed with a variety of different features, such as built-in chargers or Bluetooth speakers, so there is sure to be one that appeals to each individual consumer.

Sustainability and eco-friendly products

There is a big trend towards sustainability and eco-friendly products. According to Statista, "the market for sustainable promotional products is expected to grow by an annual rate of 11.23% between 2017 and 2021." Consumers are becoming more conscientious about their impact on the environment, so promotional products made from recycled materials or those that promote sustainability will be popular. This could include anything from promotional bamboo pens to recycled plastic promotional bags.

  • Biodegradable pens

Promotional pens with logo can be one of the best promotional item to support your green campaign since most people use pen every day and it has a big impact on our environment if we don't use it carefully. Like promotional USB drives, promotional pens can be an everyday use and long-term promotional product that will continue to remind people of your business for years after you give them away at an event or trade show.

  • Reusable shopping bags

Promotional tote bags made from recycled materials are another great example that promotes sustainability. They are perfect for grocery stores, retailers and other businesses with a green message to promote. Plus, they are practical items that people will use every day!

  • Water bottles

The more people who use reusable water bottles, the less demand there will be on plastic or aluminum disposable ones which can help reduce waste and protect our environment from harmful chemicals.


In conclusion, promotional products in 2022 will continue to be diverse and reflect the current trends in society. Whether you're looking for work from home items, virtual event giveaways, or pandemic awareness products, there's something for everyone. Keep an eye out for these trends as they emerge over the next few years.
