Desk Plants Promote You Company While Growing Grass

By Matt Franks

A touch of greenery in ones office definitely helps with the scenery. So when you start looking into promotional items to share not only with your office staff but also your customers, make it one that makes an impression. Instead of giving out calendars, key chains and stress balls, give out personal desk plants.

Personal desk plants come in a beautiful decorative tin that has your company logo embossed on the side. How many colors you can use on your promotional desk plants vary with manufacturer from single to four colors. The tins the desk plants come in are made of aluminum in brushed silver and this allows your office logo to really stand out. With a matching lid that also supports your company logo, desk plants are a unique way to reminding everyone who you are.

The desk plant tin contains everything your customers or employees need to grow some indoor grass. When you hand out this promotional item with your office information on it, the recipients will find soil and grass seeds inside. All they need to do is plant the seeds of their new desk plants in the dirt, water them, and sit back and watch the grass grow. Obviously the employees and customer whose desk plants thrive are definitely the ones that are enjoying your gift the most.


Like music, having desk plants in the office help your employees work better. It is a small slice of outdoors that they can enjoy on a daily basis. Think of how people will react when they see one of these desk plants on your receptionist’s desk. They will probably be intrigued with the idea that your employees are growing grass in the office in a tin that is sporting your office brand. If they are not one of your customers yet, give them one of your promotional desk plants to take back to their own office and let them grow some grass while they ponder on your business proposal. Your desk plants may be the key to winning their contract.
