Modern life moves fast and can be messy at times. This makes it even more important to appreciate the simple things in life, from the feel of a soft, fuzzy robe to the familiar sweetness of a favorite cookie. National Simplicity Day falls on July 12 every year to honor Henry David Thoreau, a philosopher, essayist, poet and proponent of simple living.

In this issue of Promotional Consultant Today, we’re sharing a few promotional ideas that brands can use to help customers and employees enjoy the simple things in life. These products work well for appreciation gifts, wellness promotions or gift-shop items.
