If your target market is loves physical fitness, the best products will be the kinds they can use at the gym or group fitness studio.

If they’re into golf, there are plenty of options available: balls, tees, golf towels and even umbrellas.

If your ideal customer is conscious of their impact on the environment and is committed to green living, it’s hard to go wrong with a nice, reusable bag for groceries or other shopping. Choose a big bag that they can use to carry groceries, like this one, or a sturdy canvas bag like this that will look great hanging off their shoulder. Another cool idea is a personalized GrowPot EcoPlanter — your customers can use these to grow their own herb gardens.
