1. Promotional Double-Sided 5' x 3' Polyester Flags for Tailgate Parties

A high quality yet cheap promotional tailgate flag is something that fans can wave with pride at the stadium, arena, or race track, and then keep as a prized posession in their homes afterward. Our fully customizable 5' x 3' tailgate flags are durable and pleasing to the eye. Each one comes with a 90 day warranty for outdoor use and a 6 month warranty for indoor use. The strength of these flags lies in their design and construction. Each customized double sided flag features double stitching along its edges to prevent fraying, as well as quad stitching in the corners.

The flag itself is made of superknit polyester is fully customizable by way of dye sublimation. Team logos (as well as customized imprinted business logos) will fly high as spirited fans proudly waves these premium tailgate flags in the wind. If another size better suits your needs, we also carry promotional double stiched 2' x 3' tailgating flags.

The next item on our list is our 12" Full-Color Tailgating Car Flag. Fans will love the comeraderie and fun that comes standard when rolling into the stadium parking lot as part of a convoy of fans, clearly identified by team logo auto flags. These particular car flags come with a 23" white mast and mount, so they're easy to use. All they need to do is secure the mast to the mount, clip the mount to the bottom of a car window, and then they'll be good to go. The distinct rippling sound and rapidly flapping visual effect car tailgates poessess is without parallel. The durable white-knit polyester they're made of has the smooth feel of a mesh sports jersey.

The banner portion of these team spirit accessories measures 13¾" wide by 12" tall. The pole stands 20½" tall and into the base mount with ease. Made in the USA, this team logo auto flag comes sewn to the pole and offers a full color bleed imprinting option. If desired, you can opt for what's known as a safe imprint space, which leaves the area closest to the pole undecorated. This still leaves a generous 12" wide by 10" high imprint area for your custom school or business logo. If football tailgating is the specific market you're looking to tap into, our promotional football shaped tailgate flag will rush your promotional goals into the end zone.  

3. 22" Foam #1 Hand for Tailgating Parties

Our promotional foam hands and custom imprinted foam mitts & hats are some of our most beloved school spirit items. While there are many to choose from, our personalized 22" #1 Tailgating Foam Hands are the model that gets the honor of being included in this top 12 list. 

When it comes to tailgate parties, bigger is always better. That's why students, employees, and fans of all ages will love these large personalized foam hands. Standing 22 inches tall, they offer an imprint area of 7 inches wide by 4 inches high along the palm and 1½ inches wide by 10 inches high on the upwardly extended index finger.

Choose from colors of blue, charcoal gray, green, maroon, navy blue, orange, pink, purple, red, teal, white, yellow, athletic gold, black, or royal blue to best fit your team colors or business logo. A one color, one-sided imprint is standard, but for order sizes of 250 of greater, multi-color imprints are an option. 

If you're looking for something slightly smaller, our wholesale 16" tailgate foam hands will be a great fit. As great as these #1 foam hands are as promotional tailgating gear products, they're also ideal tools as tradeshow giveaway items, college orientation and/or tour gifts, company picnic memorabilia, comemmorative event items, fair and carnival game prizes, and so much more. 

4. Thermos® Stainless King 40oz Vacuum Insulated Tailgate Bottle

40 oz promotional tailgating thermosesThe 40 oz Stainless King is the next item to make our list, this time crossing into the category of the best promotional tailgating drinkware. Employees, students, customers, and fans can all bring a thirst-quenching 40 oz of their favorite beverage to the game with these promotional vacuum insulated hot & cold bottles. These tailgating thermoses offer maximum temperature retention qualities. They can keep a beverage (or bottle-friendly food) hot or cold for up to 24 hours! These are a great promotional product to keep in mind for the tailgaters who show up to camp out in the parking lot or track infield the night before the game or race.

With its many advanced features, this stainless steel water bottle lives up to its name of "King" in every regard. As if its top-rate performance weren't enough, it is also a model of convenience. The twist-off lid serves as a cup or bowl and its twist and pour stopper allows users to let the liquid inside freely flow with a simple twist, freeing them from having to continually remove and insert the stopper.

Another handy feature is its hinged carrying handle, as can be seen in the image to the left. It's much easier to carry an item when you can just slip your hand through rather than having to use both hands or carry it as if it were a football. This makes it a natural choice to promote businesses at all kinds of events.

Each bottle stands 12¾" tall and has a diameter of 3½". Despite its large size and impressive 40 oz capacity, this stainless steel tailgating water bottle is surprisingly lightweight. A one color & location imprint is included in the price, with 4 locations to choose from. As an upgrade, you can order this as a custom business logo engraved Thermos®. Incidentally, in case you're wondering, Thermos isn't a generic name. It is trademark protected, as explained in our article about Name Brands Being Used Generically. However, as that same post points out, using a lowercase t for the plural "thermoses" is fair game.

If you'd like to take a look at some smaller promotional tailgating thermoses, we also carry an 18 oz model. Curious about this product and how it works? Check out the video below!


5. Koozie Tailgate 24 Can Rolling Cooler

A tailgate party event without drinks would be like, well, a tailgate party event without drinks. It's bad enough that it doesn't need a simile for context. At the same time, a container full of warm beer won't make for a group of happy campers either. Keeping drinks cold will keep tailgaters happy, and that's why you don't want to forget our custom business logo imprinted coolers. Specifically, we suggest the 24 can rolling tailgate cooler from Koozie. These rolling promotional coolers accommodate 24 cans of cool refreshment and are a breeze to transport and circulate among the party. 

                                                         Company Branded Tailgating Rolling Coolers

As you can see in the images above, these promotional business logo tailgating coolers are available in green, gray, and blue. Each one features side mesh pockets, a zippered top compartment, retractable handle for rolling, and a zippered front compartment for extra storage. Its dimensions of 11½ inches wide by 17 inches high by 12¼ inches deep make it small enough to be conveniently stored and moved, but large enough to offer enough cold drinks for everyone.

Your personalized business logo will be screen printed in a 5 inch by 5 inch imprint area on the front pocket. For an additional charge, you can upgrade to a full color imprint and really turn some heads. If you're catering to a crowd that might have parties of more gigantic proportions planned, you might also want to take a look at our 50 can tailgate tub coolers. Contact us for further details, sample requests, and any other information resources you may need.

6. Magnetic Bar & Tailgate Bottle Opener

We're now at the halfway point of our top twelve picks for the best promotional tailgate products for 2017. We've introduced you to some great team spirit items and beverage holders, but there's an important thing to stop and consider. What if your targeted tailgaters prefer their beer bottled rather than in a can? If they show up to the big game and have nothing to get their bottles open with, they'll be a bit perturbed. You can put out this fire before it starts by equipping your employees, customers, and target audience with the best promotional tailgating bottle openers on the market. 

Our Magnetic Tailgate & Bottle Openers are made of sturdy, impact-resistant ABS plastic and feature an inner iron ring that fits most any bottle cap for easy opening. They're also magnetic, which means that when they're not in use, they can be clipped to any magnetic surface in the area for quick storage and easy access. They fit well inside of tote bags and cooler bags, making them great for gift sets and free samples.

As soon as the next person wants to pop open another cold one, they can just grab the bottle opener imprinted with your custom logo and have satisfying refreshment with just a quick flick of the wrist. Now that's a way to build some quick and efficient brand loyalty. They're also great for opening the tabs on soda and beer cans, which can be surprisingly difficult for people without fingernails, especially during those cold Thanksgiving Day rivalry football games.

                                                        Wholesale Magnetic Tailgate Bottle Openers

As can be seen in the pictures above, these custom imprinted promotional products are available in colors of red, blue, black, and white. Each bottle opener is 2 inches wide, 4¼ inches long, and one-eighth of an inch thick. Their imprint areas measure 2 inches wide by 3/4 inch high, and are decorated with your custom designed pad printed business logo or graphic.

If you have a very specific look in mind for how you want your imprint to look and don't want to risk deviating from that plan, PMS color matching is available for an additional cost. This service consists of using a hexadecimally-coded library of colors to make sure that you get the exact shade you're looking for, for a photographic level of accuracy. 

If you want to add a little extra element of variety for your customers, considering pairing these with our football shaped novelty tailgate bottle openers. Both are high quality yet cheap tailgating promotional items that also make for some of the best promotional trade show giveaways.  

7. Portable BBQ Grill and Cooler Set

By now, you're pretty well covered for promotional tailgate drinkware, but sports fans can be a hungry bunch. All of that cheering and jocularity can leave a man or woman feeling famished and drinks alone simply won't do. That's why you'll want to be sure to have the parking lots filled with the best promotional grilling products, imprinted with your custom business logo. You're picking a winner when you go with our Portable Tailgating BBQ Grill & Cooler Set, and we're about to present you with the facts to back that claim up. This is an all-in-one tailgating grilling kit that will make its users the kings and queens of the tailgate party and all outdoor events. 

First off, you get a grill that's small enough to easily store and pack up in a vehicle, but big enough to serve up the best burgers, dogs, and brats at the arena. It comes with two grilling racks, which can be essential if you're cooking groups of foods with conflicting flavors or using different types of wood for a specific smokiness factor.

The grill is also equipped with handles and removable feet for the ultimate easy of assembly, operation, and transportation. As if this were not enough, the grill also sports an adjustable air intake, allowing grill masters to keep the flames going at just the right level at all times.

                                                Custom Logo Imprinted Tailgating Grills with Coolers

Before we let the grill steal the entire show, we'd also like to give some well-earned kudos to the cooler which accompanies it. Both come packaged together in the same 6½ inch tall and 11¾ inch diameter cylindrical container. At the top of this cylinder is a double zippered compartment that doubles as an insulated drink cooler. It's capable of holding a 6-pack and keeping it cool, no matter how hot the partying gets. It's also fully food and drink safe, having been tested for compliance with all FDA requirements.

This promotional grill and cooler combo is a tailgater's dream and as well as promotional product paydirt. Order these promotional tailgating cooler & grill sets, imprinted with your custom business logo in a 4" x 4" imprint area on top of the cooler pocket. Full color imprints are available for an added charge, but whatever printing method you go with, your custom design will look great against these gray & black BBQ beauties. 

If you're shooting to score some points with die-hard sports fans who are also culinary wizards, it would be well worth your while to search our promotional tailgating BBQ gift set with cookware

Getting back to the promise we made a couple of paragraphs ago, we'll tell you a little bit about the business logo customization aspect of these chairs. The power of choice is yours, as you get to select from three different imprint areas. You can choose to have your business logo imprinted on the nylon carrying bag, on the front of the chair's backrest, or on the back of the chair's backrest. One of these imprints is included in the price, but you can also upgrade to have multiple imprint areas as well as full-color imprints. If you're looking for a promotional tailgate product that offers a maximum level of creative license, this is the pick for you.
