I go to 5-12 WordCamps/conferences a year. That means a lot of swag! While the list below is meant as a bit of a joke, I do hope sponsors will take note. Maybe it’s time to step outside the norm!
- Buttons and pins
- Anti-stress balls
- Power banks
- USB extension cables
I appreciate the sentiment, and I understand the need for sponsors to share items with their names on it.
If you’re a sponsor looking for great ideas, here are mine:
- Stuff I can take home to my kids. About 70% of my swag goes to them. Yoast does this really well with their Lego figurines.
- Stuff aimed at women. Most gadgets I see at WordCamps are aimed at men. Some stuff for the ladies would be nice!
- Decorations for my home. There’s a reason I like mugs. Let me brighten my home with your best decorative stuff!
What’s your best swag haul?
The best thing I received so far was a Popsocket for my phone. I use it daily!
