Come Sail Away The Pitch: We are scheduled for the Commotion on the Ocean sunset cruise Wednesday eve (what would you expect from the Hustons?). What would be more perfect to tote along than a large, custom-woven sailcloth tote bag from SailorBags (asi/84293)? It’s made with triple layers of cloth on the bottom to make it nearly indestructible. A zipper top and waterproof lining keep the contents clean and dry. There’s plenty of room inside for everything you need for the boat, beach, pool or whatever activity you prefer. To see various sizes/options and pricing, click here: http://bit.ly/1c18qBx. The Bottom Line: Bring in the fleet.
Get Ballin’ The Pitch: Today is opening day for most baseball teams and have I got a fan favorite for you. It’s a portable baseball-shaped charcoal grill with a company logo. It’s lightweight (less than 10 lbs.) and it’s from Hot Sports Grills (asi/61843). It’s fun for sales incentives, sweepstakes, client gifts, PR events and more. You can get it for as low as $50, which includes up to a four-color logo, screen printed. They sell other sports ball shapes too. Check it out: http://bit.ly/1xXbici. The Bottom Line: Spark one up.
Don’t Forget the Peanuts The Pitch: Another baseball fan favorite has got to beBallpark Peanuts from Chocolate Inn/Taylor & Grant (asi/44900). They come packed in a bag with stock stripe graphics in any standard color. Pitch them for sports, team events, concerts, trade shows, picnics and more. Get them for as low as $1.73 plus free setup until 10/30/15. Use the code: BASEBALL15. Click here: http://bit.ly/1NO3pIj. The Bottom Line: A sure hit.
Take a Shot The Pitch: Here’s a nice gift for someone who enjoys a martini (or shot of Fireball): It’s a Kikkerland set of four portable, nesting, stainless-steel, 1.5-oz. shot glasses that comes in a genuine leather case with snap closure. It’s great for camping and picnics. It’s fromInternational Merchandise Concepts (IMC) (asi/62820). For pricing and more info, click here: http://bit.ly/1GDYSHZ. The Bottom Line: Bottoms up.
