Some of my favourite things.

“Hey swag,what’s the hot new thing!”

I hear it daily.
Honest answer- nothing.

And everything.
This much is clear to me,after five christmases in open revolt of the rampant swag malpractice- theres no silver bullet.

What matters is tea. More accurately,a beverage that warms the recipients heart. Tea,when you dream of tea. Lightly honeyed. Clean ceramic mug. Lively conversation,comfy chair.

What matters in swag is what matters in life- meeting your intended where they are.

Intimate.

image

Like the smile of a dog.

Authentic.

image

Like sharing something of yourself. Something you think they’ll like. And find useful.

image

Useful for their revolution.

Not shilling. Not ‘buy our stuff’,but ‘lemme help you with that load. Lemme hand you a hammer to toss. Another one.

Unexpected.

image

Jinglebell nippleclamps. Or thinking putty. Whatever works for ya.

What. Ever. Works. For them.

Rick warren was right,in purpose driven life. Its not about you.

Its about them.

Looking for easy answers? We’re not those guys.

Looking for what matters? For #swagworthstealing?

Then lets have tea. Or soup. Or makers.

Whatever suits you.

Me. Sugarmouse. Swimming together.

Me. Hk. Playing a robust game of chess. Hes getting really, really good. Beating me regularly.

Oh, And I’m not half bad myself.

We serve an awesome tribe. Wiley, smart,plucky, creative, passionate people.

image

A tribe of artists, entrepreneurs, writers,story tellers,and creative class thought leaders. People who are making the world a better place.

I doubt that makes sense. Hells bells, I doubt that’s you.

But if it is, turn yourself in. we have agents all over the place, typically doing work worth doing. Solving problems worth solving.

image

Making a difference.
Doing the work.

image

And if you suck?
Stop it.
Before we stop you.

About your shrine. Its time we talked about it.

That thing you do? So glad you are doing it. So please don’t take this as slagging, please take it as, um,
constructive criticism.
Your swag could be pandoras box of awesome.

image

Or. It could suck. Whatever.

image

Its your call.
Your budget.
Your tabla rossa.

But whatever you put in your swag arsenal, please prayerfully consider this-
How is it telling your story? Even when you’re not in the room. Hells bells, ESPECIALLY when you’re not in the room.

image

Working through some things for the store, STOAH!, I’ve been compiling things. A dogs breakfast. A basket of bits.

image

Some things were sheer awesome, others, not so much. But the desired outcome was always the same.
This.

image

This abides. Smiling. Creating a touch point. Creating a memory.
Telling a story.

image

“Do you want more panty with that?”
Yes. Yes we do.

image

Good swag doesn’t have to be expensive, although it’s always nice to have a robust budget. No, good swag requires a robust story. Which I’m sure you’ve got.
Right?
We wanna help you tell your story. That is unlikely to be done elegantly through another koozie, stress ball, cheap plastic pen, refer magnet, or coaster.

Theres been some confusion around. About that thing we do. I’ll have to admit, it’s intentional. A magicians trick. Before we get to the reveal, the prestige, we work the pledge.
Hard.
Sleight of hand, to help you let your hair down.

image

To soften the perimeter.

We help people tell their stories. Are tools are intimate. Authentic. And unexpected.

For those tall enough to ride the ride.
Itykwim.

What’s in YOUR box?
