Spray-On Sales The Pitch: I'm going coconuts for Tekweld's (asi/90807) tropical-scented SPF 30 sunscreen spray in a credit-card style container. This is not only swell for summertime events and promotions, but autumn sports and golf tournaments too. And how about dermatologist promotions and skin-cancer awareness causes? Pricing starts at: 250; $1.80.See it here: http://www.tekweld.com/. The Bottom Line: To the tropics.
Ride the Waves The Pitch: What is more relaxing than looking at the ocean? Unfortunately there are plenty of us who don't live by the beach.National Geographic Society (asi/73383) offers something every ocean lover would appreciate (and you don't have to worry about sharks and jellyfish): The Ocean Soul book. It includes "state-of-the-art, jaw-dropping imagery of the planet's oceans for an underwater portrait of trouble and triumph destined to make waves.” So says the supplier. This would make a lovely holiday gift and pricing starts at: 25; $50. Click here: http://shop.nationalgeographic.com. The Bottom Line: Go for a swim.
Drinks on Me The Pitch: I love these for bars and parties and other special events: Glowing 8-inch cocktail stirrers that last for hours and come with attached connectors to make bracelets out of them. Right? Am I wrong? Aren't these fun? Couldn't you just picture the Jersey Shore gang bar-hopping in Seaside Heights with these on? They are from Glow Promotions (asi/79922) and pricing starts at: 200; .30. Click here: http://www.glowpromotions.com/. The Bottom Line: Bright lights.
Put a Ring on It The Pitch: Oh, now this is a cool idea: The Beer Bottle Opener Ring from Creative & Freedom Group (asi/47157). The brushed stainless-steel ring is also a bottle opener. You know every fella is going to want one. (Even you soda pop drinkers.) This is unique for all kinds of sporting and beverage promotions. Pricing starts at: 5000; .60. Check them out here: http://damianoltd2.logomall.com/. The Bottom Line: Are you open to it?
