Lil Jon is just one of the many artists to sing about swag, but what does swag even mean? Sure, many artists use the word “swag” to mean confidence, style, and self-expression. However, there are acronyms of swag that more completely grasp what the word has come to mean over time, especially in a corporate setting. Lil Jon, Kanye West, and Rihanna already sing about swag, but they you be interested to learn exactly what swag means.

 

What does Swag Mean?

Commonly, swag’s definition comes from its acronym: “Stuff We All Get.” Immediately, thoughts of branded pens, cups, t-shirts, mouse pads, and so much more come to mind. This is stuff we all get from trade shows, new job orientation, giveaways, company events, and any other facet where brand advertising and recruitment take place.

Another acronym defining swag has been created through the promotional industry: “Souvenirs, Wearables, and Gifts.” This allows for the meaning of “swag” to encompass a lot more than bulk promotional products. Gifted items, apparel, and other items classified as “swag” do not have to be impersonal and cheap. Conscious corporate swag choices can benefit both recipients and companies, allowing them to get their “swag on a hundred.”

Interestingly, corporate swag can help employees and customers achieve the “swag” that Lil Jon and other artists sing about. Through intentional, personalized swag, companies can promote confidence, style, and self-expression in their employees. When employees get to choose the swag they want to wear or use, they can choose options that promote their own confidence, style, and…well…swagger.
