2. slang Merchandise or small promotional items given away at events such as conferences. A variant spelling of "swag." Look at all the schwag I got at that HR conference! Pens, a clipboard, even a beach ball! I hear they're giving away all sorts of sweet gaming schwag from their booth at the expo.
