Concepts like self-care, stress management and work-life balance are big cultural trends right now. It makes sense that the increasingly hectic nature of modern life has resulted in a renewed (and much needed) focus on wellness. It's also no surprise that the sales of health and beauty products like body lotions, lip balms and bath bombs are skyrocketing in retail.
Cultural trends aside, health and beauty items have a unique quality that makes them particularly effective promotional products. Since they are designed to soothe, relax and protect, they send the message that your brand cares about the recipient's well-being.
Let's look at the current trends driving the category's popularity:
Learning how to eat right, reduce stress, exercise regularly, and take time-out when you need it are huge trends in popular culture right now. The light speed pace of modern life has resulted in an increased interest in ways to slow down and de-stress. While taking some me-time for a spa day might not always be practical, many people are destressing withe spa treatments at home. These spa products are ideal for sending a message that you care.
