New Company Swag Ideas for 2022 - Axomo

Getting employees excited about the merch in your store can be tricky. Finding trendy franchise swag items that also fit your brand’s message and promoting those items are obstacles you may run into. But keep pushing forward, trendy items have some huge benefits.

Not only will employees want the swag on the store, but the impact of a few team members showing it off to coworkers, will be greater.

If someone has already been thinking of buying a trendy piece of swag, then seeing it in one of their cohorts will help push them to buy it for themselves.

2022 brings a whole new spirit of corporate swag, with more of an emphasis on personalized gifting and sustainability. The biggest trends we’re seeing are:

  • Sustainable / Eco-Friendly
  • Unique and Quirky
  • Tech-Friendly

Trendy Swag Ideas #1: Bucket hats

Bucket hats are on the rise in the fashion world.  This fun fashion item adds a little bit of silly to any outfit and can be seen on artists like Billie Eilish and Rihanna.

With average searches up by 56% percent, bucket hats are an inexpensive way to appeal to younger team members.

Check out our branded bucket hats.

Trend Swag Ideas #2: Headphones

Around 45% of full-time workers work at least partially from home and offer swag that can be used for them.

Items like laptop cases, ring lights, and microphones are all good choices, but a good pair of headphones can go a long way in making remote meetings more enjoyable.

Make sure that all employees feel included, and follow the trend of more people working from home, with your swag store.

Trendy Swag Ideas #3: Multipurpose Blanket

Items that serve more than one purpose are on the rise in the world of camping.

Camping needs to be compact, but outdoorsmen want products that can be used practically as well.

They want something that can be useful in their everyday lives.

Rather than just having a camping blanket, the Kachula Adventure Blanket can be converted into a jacket with an included hood. Great for cold nights out, or just a picnic at home.

#4: Gardens

One of the top trends in outdoor living is gardens. Many are embracing the beauty and tranquility a garden can bring to their home space.

While having a full garden may be hard for some, these grow kits can be a great addition to anyone’s home or apartment. They bring in (at least in a small way) the opportunity to garden for any living space, while providing fresh herbs.

Trendy Swag Ideas #5: Athleisure

One of the top trends in athletic wear is athleisure. Sports clothes wearers are looking for multifunction clothing. They want something they can wear to work, or relaxing by the tv.

These yoga pants are a great addition to any store. They work well both for yoga and everyday wear.


#6: Bomber Jackets

Bringing back old styles is on trend, and bomber jackets are one of those items. Bomber jackets are both warm and fashionable with varied textures and patterns.

Useful in the winter, or just when you want to add a little flair to any outfit.

Start with something like this and let your creativity roll.

#7: Eco-friendly Swag

Sustainable living and purchasing are on the rise, and many companies are doing something to support it.

AXOMO, at its core, is about sustainability. Taking the choice out of one person, and putting it into many, reducing the amount of swag being thrown out is one of our missions.

On top of that, we offer many sustainably sourced products, like this backpack from Cotopaxi, made from normally scrapped fabric.

Trendy Swag Ideas #8: Bamboo Cutting Board

Sustainable, durable and cheap, bamboo cutting boards are on the rise.

Bamboo is a fast-growing tree that makes reforestation a breeze.

So cut your veggies with peace of mind knowing that some 100-year-old oak wasn’t cut down to make your board.

Useful for any kitchen, these boards are an easy addition to any swag store.

Trendy Swag Ideas #9: Infuser Water Bottles

Infuser water bottles feature a simple to-manufacture process, easy cleaning, durability, and any flavor of your choice, these types of bottles are seen everywhere.

The AXOMO catalog offers many options for infuser bottles, but these ones are a great, simple, and stylish choice.

#10: Board Games

The board games market is a rapidly expanding area, and people are playing them more now than ever before. With easier accessibility and remote playing possibilities, the internet has made them a trending activity.

This simple coaster set features 4 different games that can be packed into a small set.
