2. Boost Their Morale with Branded Apparel

On any given day, your maintenance staff is likely fixing X or tinkering with Y across multiple areas of your building and property. No doubt, many, if not most, of their job duties occur in isolation.

  1. A Harriton ¼ Zip Fleece Pullover is ideal whether they perform indoor or outdoor maintenance work.
  2. Keep them warm with a Nice-N-Cozy Fleece Gift Set and a branded Bode Fleece Jacket.
  3. Protect them from the elements with a Northerly Rain Jacket.
  4. Known for its sturdy durability, the Carhartt® Thermal-Lined Duck Active Jacket will see them through the toughest maintenance work.

3. Renew Their Energy in Style with Branded Drinkware

From starting their morning with a coffee or tea to staying hydrated throughout the day or enjoying an adult beverage off the clock, our branded drinkware is a practical gift. For instance, a customized thermos such as the 16 oz. Notable Leatherette Vacuum Bottle or The Companion 16 oz. Stainless Steel Flask will keep their beverages hot when they’re on the move.

A custom water bottle will show them your company values their hydration (and wellness) at work and elsewhere. The 1 Gallon Coleman® Jug will get them through the day, especially in workspaces with a limited water supply.

Are you leaning toward personalized barware to show your appreciation? Go for a customized Pint Glass Thank You Set and throw in a twelve-pack of their favorite brew. Or, make a toast to a job well done with the Napa Stemless Wine Tumbler Set.
