A lot of the time it depends what your business actually is and what your budget is too. Both these things are likely to influence the type of promotional product you opt for. In general though, most companies tend to opt for things such as:
Stationary: notepads, pens, pencils, rulers, erasers
Business items: business card holder, address book, laptop sleeve
Desk Accessories: Mugs, Glass, Calendars
Clothing: T-shirts, caps, hats, socks, gloves, sweat bands
Whilst these are the most common items - you really can be inventive with this. In fact, it is often the more inventive choices for promotional products that are the most successful.
