Hot Products: Objects of Hotness
By Joe Haley
August, 2009

We took a look at seven different product categories and asked you to vote on your favorite within each category. Here are the items you think are hot, hot, hot.

You never know when you’re going to come across that one product that just jumps out at you and screams, "You want me, you know you want me." T Could be at a trade show. Could be at a little league game. Could be in a catalog, at a restaurant, on line at the movies or in the local bowling alley. Here at Counselor, we’re always on the lookout for the most unique and intriguing promotional products available.

For this issue, we set out once again to find the hottest products in the market right now. We were looking for items that were interesting, practical and would make good ad specialties for client promotions.

In conjunction with The Joe Show, the weekly online video series that shows off a variety of promotional products, Counselor picked products in seven different categories. Joe Haley, managing editor of Counselor and host of The Joe Show, presented the items on video each week for the two months leading up to this issue, and we then asked viewers to vote on their favorites.

In categories that ranged from food and totes to eco-friendly and sports arena promotions, we chose products that were highly useful and sometimes eye-popping. To see the videos of all of the products, click here.

On the following pages, we present all 46 of the products we showcased, along with the seven items that the industry voted as the winners in each category. Take a look!
