Every year, our Swagstronauts help thousands of customers create, automate, and distribute swag and swag packs to their teams and clients. From planning conversations through to the finishing touches on the perfect swag pack, it should be no secret that we love swag. Here, we’ve rounded up our customer faves from our vast swag catalog.

We can assure you that these swag MVPs always leave a solid statement and never fail to impress. Keep scrolling, because there’s something here for everyone.

Psst – look for the little green sustainable tag for the beeline to our most popular sustainable products. The blue lightning bolts indicates items that our suppliers normally keep in stock!

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, onboarding swag filled 2021’s most popular packs, followed by holiday swag, event, and conference swag. We’re stoked about all of the swag our customers have gifted to their clients and teams – and all of the benefits they’ve enjoyed by gifting fantastic, high-quality swag!

Our Never-Fail Swag Pack MVPs

1. Sock Club Sustainably-Made Custom Socks

Cozy, warm, snug, and sustainable! The custom knit socks from Sock Club were by far our most popular piece of swag in 2021. They appeared in over 75,000 swag packs and were a chief favorite of everyone who got them. We think that the freedom to cover these with your branding may have something to do with its popularity, coupled with how cute and comfy they are.

2. H2Go Silo Insulated Water Bottle

The sleek H2GoSilo water bottle made an appearance in almost 40,000 swag packs in 2021. We think the reasons are obvious. It’s vacuum-insulated to keep your drink at the right temperature, features a stainless steel build for great durability and a threaded insulated lid to avoid spills. Plus, logos really pop against the Silo’s durable matte exterior. We love this simple, sustainable swag MVP!

3. Bella + Canvas Tee

The premium cotton, unisex Bella+Canvas Tee found a spot in over 75,000 swag packs in 2021. This jersey t-shirt features a modern cut (read: not too boxy, not too slim!) crew neck and short sleeves. The fabric is superior Airlume combed and ring-spun cotton that acts as the best blank canvas for your branding. Coming in a variety of sizes and colors, there’s one of these for everyone on your team.

4. Air Plant w/Customizable Desk Planter

Remote offices and WFH are now officially a thing, and this air plant with customizable planter complemented over 25,000 swag packs (and desks!) in 2021 along. These hardy succulents require little upkeep and add some fresh greenery to your desk, shelf or bedside table. It’s a thoughtful little gift to tuck inside your perfect swag pack.

PS. this cutie is perishable, so it’s the best fit for swag packs that ship within the US and that you’d don’t plan to store!

5. Quake Sustainable Wireless Charging Pad

Wireless charging is a game-changer of a quality of life feature and when you can print your beautiful branding on the pad itself, you know we have a winner. The Quake Wireless Charging Pad, another sustainable client fave, was included in almost 30000 swag packs last year. This simple, no frills wireless charger can charge any device that supports wireless charging; making it a great, versatile choice of swag for anyone.  Check out a similar item here.
