British Summer Time; Is A Branded Umbrella The Most Important Item To Have To Hand?! With so much torrential rain over the past couple of days, it begs the question. Britain is notorious for its changeable weather and it is hard to predict whether it will rain, hail, snow or occasionally be hot and sunny! With this in mind, we do find that branded umbrellas are popular as a quality, useful business gift for many of the UK companies we look after.

If however, you are catering for a summer event or exhibition, you may want to look on the brighter side! This is where seasonal items such as branded parasols, deckchairs and gazebos come into their own and can make a huge statement with your guests. Or even if you have an indoor event planned this summer, you may just want to embrace the possibility of sunshine with these types of items! You could give out branded sunglasses, branded sunhats, lipbalm and even branded icecream tubs to your guests…now that would be a summer event to remember.

Tip: Did you know that you can only see 3 panels of an umbrella at any one time? See our video below for more handy tips!
