Businesses all over the country will be participating in Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October by offering special deals and selling merchandise decorated with a pink ribbon. The pink ribbon, which was designed to raise awareness about breast cancer and show support for those who have been diagnosed with the disease, has long been a symbol of hope.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’ve compiled a list of promotional products that would be perfect giveaways while spreading the word about your company’s donation efforts:

Custom Notepads

Printed with information on how to donate and contact information for local hospitals, these notepads can help you get in touch easily with potential donors. They also come in handy when holding meetings or brainstorming ideas.

USB Drives

Like printed notepads, custom USB drives will allow you to spread important information quickly and efficiently. What makes these items especially effective is that they’re useful to just about everyone.


A promotional pen will never go out of style, so it makes for an incredibly long-lasting giveaway. Again, because pens are practical items that everyone uses every day, your company will enjoy wide exposure throughout October and beyond.


Give away custom key chains at trade shows, conventions, or other large gatherings where you’ll have the opportunity to make a significant impression on a lot of potential customers in a short amount of time. Because people place keys near their front door each day, they’ll be reminded of your brand every day—not just during Breast Cancer Awareness Month!


Custom mugs are another great product that allows visitors who receive them as gifts to keep your company top of mind all month long. Encourage them to use the mug each day with a hot cup of coffee or tea and they’ll see your brand’s name with every sip!

Hats & visors

Brimmed hats and visor caps can be purchased with various badges or emblems already attached to them as well as ones without decoration so they can be customized by the wearer


Typically have a pink ribbon design on one side, as well as black and white images of women.

Journals & bookmarks

These can either be purchased separately or as part of a larger product such as a planner.

Shopping bags

Available from many online stores and retail outlets, these pink bags can be used in the store or at home for gift-giving purposes.

Lip balm

Useful and easy to keep in a purse, these lip products come in various flavors and can be customized with your company name or logo.


Giveaways featuring candy offer an opportunity for you to ‘sweeten’ up potential donors this October. Candies such as Taffy, bubble gum, jelly beans, and hard candy all make great giveaways because they’re small enough to hand out at trade shows or conventions while remaining inexpensive.

Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity presented by Breast Cancer Awareness Month by using promotional office supplies that will bring more awareness about your business’s efforts to fight the disease!
