Question Hats and whips

These are promotional items used in a marketing campaign, it could include T-shirts with your article, pens, mugs, this, that and the other thing...

Anyone have any idea how to say this in Spanish?

I don't know that "hats and whips" is a set phrase. If it is, it's limited to an industry, for example advertising.

From Pablo's definition: We say "artículos promocionales" or "artículos publicitarios".

Thank you, Tomísimo and Angélica.
I believe my usage and definition may be a limited 'marketing-slang', given that when I search in Google I get things like "Indiana Jones' hats and whips"... but then again, that extrapolate to other "super-heroes"... (I believe the expression may come from one century ago or so... but I couldn't swear to that.) In any case "artículos promocionales/publicitarios" seems like a good solution, for lack of some Spanish 'slangy/obscure' term for such. I bet Spanish marketing companies may have some 'specialized' expression for that... but for us, the layman, I think Angélica's solution will suffice...
