Waterproof Speakers

Spring break adventures usually include fun, friends, and most importantly, water. That makes a waterproof speaker a spring break must-have. Don’t let the small sizes of these portable speakers fool you. They can pack a powerful punch when it comes to sound quality. From beach days to pool parties to boating on the lake—there’s no need to worry about splashing water ruining the music or the good times. Which waterproof speaker is right for your customers? Here are two options to consider.

Peshtemal Beach Towels

Peshtemal beach towels are becoming increasingly popular promotional products. This style of towel originates from Turkey and is traditionally part of hammam (steam) bathing. The lightweight cotton weave makes them super absorbent, fast drying, and machine washable—ideal for throwing in a bag on your way to the beach or pool. Plus, the eye-catching fringe along the edges sets them apart from typical beach towels. These two peshtemal towel options come in several different beachy-cool colors and can be either embroidered or screenprinted.
