How to choose a Sports Bag as a Corporate Gifts

I am not much of a sports enthusiast. But I am a mom who has a daughter who has so many activities that it makes
one’s head spin. Sports Bags make terrific corporate gifts. There are a couple of things that we look for when choosing which bag to use. One criterion for sports bags is definitely size. On ballet day the items taken are light weight and small. Ballet shoes, leotards etc can fit in almost anywhere. However, one has to consider that you have to have somewhere to put the clothes that she was wearing before she got changed. The bag may fit a pair of ballet shoes easily. But fitting a bulky pair of shoes is a different matter. On horse riding days, we have to fit in riding boots, jodhpurs, gaiters, shirt and riding helmet. That means that we need a lot more space as a riding helmet takes up more space in the sports bag. Put into perspective for corporate gifts, this means that each year you can hand out a different size sports bag as a corporate gift. Another criterion for Sports bags as a corporate gift is if there are wet and dry compartments. On swimming days there are wet towels , so a double Decker bag where you cab separate dirty shoes or wet towels from everything else is very handy. A third criterion is how the sports bag is carried. If you are giving bags to cyclists, then you definitely would consider a backpack as a corporate gift as this is the most practical type of bag for s a cyclist. Lastly we look at whether the bag has compartment for a water bottle. Bags that have side pouches make excellent corporate gifts if you want to include a branded water bottle. Be sure give out BPA free water bottles as corporate gifts.

Go For BPA Free Water Bottles

How many times a day do you use something made from plastic?
I can guarantee that it's more than you think. Plastic has been a part of our lives for over 100 years, and its use continues to grow. In 2002, about 107 billion pounds of plastic were produced in North America. Recently, claims have been made about certain types of plastic being unsafe. Have you ever noticed the number with the arrows surrounding it on your plastic bottles? Many people use these numbers to determine how the product is to be recycled. These numbers are called the plastic packaging resin identification codes. They indicate the type of plastic that the item was made from and are used to help consumers know whether and how the item is to be recycled. Belle Regalo sells a range of BPA Free Drinkware. Many consumer products including promotional products are being manufactured from materials that ate know cacogenics and other harmful elements that can be extremely harmful to your health and our environments. The products listed on our Drinkware page http://www.belleregalo.co.za/gifts/drinkware.htm are tested using a chemical testing instrument and the food related products are thoroughly tested by independent laboratories to meet applicable standards.

World Aids Day Gifts

How is HIV passed on?

HIV can be passed on through infected blood, semen, vaginal fluids or breast milk.

The most common ways HIV is passed on are:

* Sex without a condom with someone living with HIV
* Sharing infected needles, syringes or other injecting drug equipment
* From an HIV-positive mother (to her child) during pregnancy, childbirth or breastfeeding (but with effective treatment and care the risk of transmission can be greatly reduced)

Belle Regalo Offeres a wide range of World Aids Day Gifts.

Rugby World Cup Springbok Fever

It is all Springbok fever after our win against Wales on Sunday 11 September.
When the final whistle sounded, the match statistics were heavily stacked in favour of Wales, but the one that mattered, the final score, was tilted 17-16 in favour of the Springboks, who were somewhat fortuitous victors in their Rugby World Cup opener in Wellington on Sunday.
With time running out, the Boks once again worked their way into Welsh territory where they inched forward by setting up rucks to burn up time and hold onto possession.
The Belle Regalo rugby fans were at the Monte Casino venue for the ABSA Boktown.
At Belle Regalo we are fully supporting the Springboks.

On Fridays as work we wear our Bokday shirts. On Rugby Match days we were our official supporter’s shirts. Of course it would now be as much fun if we did not have our huge South African Flag hats.

If you are looking for Supporter’s shirt, supporter’s hats and Rugby World Cup Bags, look no further than Belle Regalo.

ICC Cricket World Cup Mascot

Like the FIFA World Cup, the ICC Cricket World Cup also has a mascot.

Stumpy is the official mascot for the 2011 Cricket World Cup. He was unveiled at a function in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on Friday, 2 April 2010.

He is a ten year old elephant who is enthusiastic and is determined. Cricket-followers based all over the world were able to participate in a contest to name the mascot.

His personality is encapsulated in his form - he's young and enthusiastic, and bursting at the seams with his love for cricket and his/its heroes! When he's fully grown he hopes to be a giant (in both senses) like the masters of the sport he loves so much. Being young he knows that he can't get it all right the first time or even the tenth, but the cricketers he looks up to have taught him to use his elephant strength and step-by-step determination to reach his goals, and eventually he will be the best.

Sport is best used as symbol and symbolism used in corporate is an idea way to boost productivity and team spirit. So get your staff to wear the Protea Friday Shirt.
