Hot marketing idea: Personalized crossbody shoulder bags!

Unlike fanny packs, these bags are worn diagonally across the body, with the strap sitting over one shoulder and the bag resting on the opposite hip. They are designed for hands-free carrying and have become extremely popular for their convenience and comfort. Below you'll find additional information and a few of my favorites ranging in price from $3-35 each.

Crossbody shoulder bags: Who are they good for?

  • Students - Crossbody shoulder bags are ideal as they can easily carry phones, money, and school essentials while keeping their hands free. Universities and schools love these bags as marketing promotions!
  • Commuters - For those who take public transportation or ride a bike to work, crossbody bags are a great option to keep their belongings close and secure. With a custom logo, these bags can turn employees into walking billboards for their organization.
  • Travelers - Crossbody bags are ideal for travelers as they allow easy access to passports, boarding passes, and other essential documents. In addition, travel agencies and tour companies use these bags as a giveaway to promote their brand.
  • Outdoor Enthusiasts - Crossbody bags are a practical and comfortable option for carrying gear and essentials for those who enjoy hiking, camping, or other outdoor activities. The smaller size of these bags makes them a great alternative to backpacks.
  • Moms/Dads w/Young Kids - For parents on the go, crossbody bags can be a lifesaver for carrying essentials like diapers, wipes, and snacks while keeping their hands free to tend to their little ones. Organizations that cater to expecting parents love these bags for tradeshows and giveaways for things like birthing classes.
  • People without Pockets - Yoga pants, dresses, skirts, and athletic gear. Very rarely do you find these garments with pockets, so if your organization markets to folks who wear these, consider a shoulder bag as your next branded marketing giveaway.
