Giving Your Team a Winter Gift? Which is Better a Puffer Jacket or Puffer Vest?

By Pete Apo

Winter has arrived in full force, and so has the end-of-year and holiday gifting season. If you’re looking for a unique, and practical team gift you may want to think about an embroidered puffer jacket or a puffer vest. Emblazoned with your team logo, a puffer jacket or puffer vest can advertise for you, all while keeping your employees warm during the winter months. Read on to learn why vests and jackets embroidered with your company logo makes a great gift. 

Why Choose a Puffer Jacket or Vest?

Puffer vests and jackets are also known as puffy, down, quilted, or insulated vests and jackets. The unique design that features puffy sections between the stitching is thanks to down (feathers) or synthetic material that is sewn in for added warmth. They have become a winter staple from coast-to-coast pairing well with casual attire, business casual attire, and even professional attire. 

Custom Puffer Vest as Company Gifts

Embroidered vests for your employees can be a great end-of-year gift that your team members can likely wear from fall through spring. Other benefits of giving a puffer vest as a gift include:

  • Less expensive than puffer coats
  • Perfect for layering
  • Easy to pack
  • Warmth for cool days
  • Excellent for employees who love hiking, biking, camping, fishing, and climbing
  • Less bulky for travel
  • Stylish and trendy
  • Protection from rain, snow
  • Available in many colors 
  • Sizes from XS-4XL

Embroidered Puffer Jacket for Employees

A puffer jacket with your company name or logo also makes a great team gift. Although employees may only wear them a few months out of the year, they will be appreciated by your team due to the following benefits:

  • Ideal for employees who spend time outside working
  • Provide excellent warmth 
  • Folds into a very small, packable size
  • Excellent for employees who use public transportation to commute to work
  • Lightweight compared to other winter coats
  • Stylish and trendy
  • Perfect for team members who like snowshoeing, camping, etc.
  • May be available in various lengths
  • Available in different colors
  • Can be layered under a parka in extreme cold
  • Sizes from XS-4XL

Why choose a custom puffer jacket or vest for team gifts?

Customized jackets and vests are useful. Since puffer vests and puffer jackets are so trendy, your employees will likely wear them, at least occasionally. This allows for your brand to be advertised wherever your employees travel. 

A jacket or vest demonstrates that you invested in your employees’ gift. Vests and jackets are more expensive than cloth tote bags, company coffee cups, customized pens, etc. Giving a vest or a coat as an end-of-year gift shows your team that you didn’t look for the easiest, cheapest gift available.
