5 Kinds of Bags to Delight Anyone

customized items1_what we do gallery

Everyone loves bags. The style, the functionality, the materials that make up the whole ensemble, we like to flaunt our bags, a lot! However, bags are also unique in their very own way. The thing is, we are blessed with varieties of bags that we fail to appreciate them for their differences. Each bag is represented by its function, and there are times in which we fail to utilize them to their fullest, only giving notice to their fashion, inasmuch as being accessories for our everyday wear. This is even more evident within an office setting, where the bag itself should accompany the corporate wear as a whole. Of course, people would always prefer to look very professional and presentable at work (perhaps due to office policy), but oftentimes, there is still leeway to make the most out of your bags without sacrificing your looks. The thing is, once the main function of a bag is made evident, the understanding that it may stand out is already made acceptable. But you may ask, “Do varieties of bags really have different uses?” Well, of course, they do. Look no further than our examples and you might be surprised about their functionalities. If you’re the boss or the head manager of your company, the more that you should pay attention to this list, as you may be given an idea of what to give your employees the next time you’d have an office awarding ceremony.


1. Backpacks
Usually, when the word “backpack” is spoken, people often imagine a mountain climber embarking on a rough journey, either that or they envision a tourist enjoying a long hike in a grassy, foreign location. They aren’t wrong to think about these images, and as the head of your company, this may come at your advantage. You see, gift ideas are hard to come by. You may know the ins and outs about your employees, what they love, what they hate, even the things that makes them tick, but, you still end up shorthanded when it comes to trying to come up with a nice gift for them. Well, one thing’s for sure, everyone loves to travel, everyone loves to go out of town, and everyone definitely loves to carry their belongings when embarking on a long journey, especially your employees. You may have caught a glimpse of this during one of your team building trips. With that in mind, a backpack may just be your most viable option as a company-wide gift. Not only is a backpack useful for carrying huge amounts of items, it would also be durable enough to hold those items in one go.


2. Pouch Bags
Now, from the big-sized up to the small variety. Pouch bags are somewhat of a “mixed bag.” On one hand, they wouldn’t really be big enough to carry a huge amount of items, on the other hand, they would just be enough for your employees to carry some of the smallest valuables that they have. This may prove useful, especially when they have keys to carry around. Pouch bags are perfect for carrying keys, think about it. Instead of hanging them in a lanyard necklace, where they may be yanked, or worse, fall into a ditch once the unreliable lanyard snaps out of nowhere, they may keep the keys within their pouches, where they may be retrieved again without hassle. Aside from safety, pouch bags are also stylish, giving way for employees to enjoy their mini bags via various color or design choices. If you want to keep your office giveaways too professional, a single color and an emblem of your company may just be enough for your liking. Nonetheless, your employees would greatly appreciate the gesture.


3. Laptop Bags
One of the most useful items that you can give your employees, laptop bags are more of a necessity nowadays, rather than a fashion statement. People in the corporate world would need mobility, and they’d need their laptops with them, containing all of the important files and deliverables for the day. Now, laptop bags would be a wise investment for employees, in order to contain and to protect their prized work possession. If something were to go wrong (with the laptop falling to the floor, for example) all of those important soft copy documents would be lost, leading to an unnecessary halt in productivity, and no one would like that, especially a company head. So, if you are in the position to decide on office giveaways, do both your company and your employees a favor and give everyone a laptop bag. Stylish enough to be carried around and durable enough to protect the laptop itself. Take note that different laptops models may vary in size, so you may need to observe which specific model most of your employees would around. It would be much better for you if you were to gift them individually, so no one gets left out with a much bigger or smaller laptop bag.


4. Travel Cases
Somewhat similar to the backpack, travel cases are huge containers for carrying a whole lot of travel necessities. However, unlike the backpack, travel cases do not need to be carried around all the time. Here’s the thing, people often pay for accommodation whenever they’d go out of town. Once they are settled, they would take their backpacks and travel pouches with them, leaving behind the travel case at the comfort and safety of their rented accommodation. Most of the time, travel cases are brought to contain extra clothes and souvenirs once the vacation is about to end, which is why they are mostly kept within hotel rooms, so that the vacationer can pick them up after every trip. If your company usually goes on an out-of-town trip, then by all means, feel free to gift your employees with this gift option. Save them the hassle of trying to pick out their own travel cases from crowded malls and show them that you care about their love for trips.

5. Go Bags
First of all, what are “Go Bags?” The following is an official definition and description given by a safety-oriented website:

“Go Bags” are basically emergency-preparedness bags that you pack in advance, but hope you may never need. These bags are useful during emergency situations and hasty evacuations. The emergency kit should be self-contained in one small or medium-sized bag and should contain enough non-perishable food and potable water for you and your family to last several days. The other important things to pack within the Go Bag should be tools (like a flashlight and a Swiss Army knife) and some extra clothing and blankets.”

As an employer and head of the company, your employees are your responsibility, and their safety and welfare should be at the top of your list. Prepare them for emergency situations and gift them a Go Bag.
