Keyring Breathalyzers: These unique and popular promotional gifts are typically sold behind the bar or given away to prime customers. Although these breathalyzer keyrings gifts aren’t 100% correct, they’re a fantastic way to determine whether or not or not you ought to use your Uber app or Taxi app to get a ride home instead of the bus or train if you’ve driven to the pub.

Plastic Pens: Promotional pens are one of the most common, cheap and effective promotional business gifts we can think of.  Custom imprinted pens are both cheap and really useful at the same time. Virtually everybody wants a FREEBIE and pens are the perfect thing to hand out.  I need to use a pen on a daily basis. I would assume so do a lot of other people.  There are literally thousands of styles to choose from. Once you get them printed with your pub name and logo, you can place them all over your pub, including around the bar top. Just lay them around scattered or place them neatly in a glass or mug.  Strategically place them around your pub so folks that come in can decide if they want to pick one up   Every time they use it it will remind them of their visit to your pub. They might even take two and give one to a friend!  These really are great promotional tools.  These lighters have bottle openers on them.

T-shirts: T-shirts don’t have to be expensive to create.  If you’re going to sell pub t-shirts,  you may want to ensure you choose good to great quality shirts. Promotional clothing works as a walking sign for your business. People love to wear the logos and names of their favorite pubs or beers.  Anything can go when you create t-shirts.  I do create t-shirts for all sorts of people.  If you’re interested in getting t-shirts for your pub or pub crawl, shoot me an email at London Pub Crawls and let’s discuss what you’re looking for in a design.  You can find pub crawl templates on or store and on our app.  Here are a couple of my designs.

There are still a lot of individuals who are smokers and these cheap plastic lighters with your custom printed logo and your pub name, can either sold or given away to your smoking customers as they head outside for a smoke in or garden area or designated smoking are.

Beer Mats or Coasters: I personally love these great little products. Coasters are one of the most interesting and popular promotional gifts on the market for pubs and bars. They come in all kinds of shapes that can be custom imprinted with a brewery logo like Fullers or with your pubs details and logo.  Give one away to EVERY customer who orders a drink.  I know there are people out there who collect drink mats and they can be a great way to promote special evening events like trivia nights, sporting matches or whatever you can think of.  You can get nice qaulity stone mats that customers can purchase from you with your pub logo on it.
