Gilt-y Pleasure The Pitch: You’ll be golden if you pitch this pen to your financial clients. Item #32001 from Alpi International Ltd. (asi/34415) is a ballpoint pen with floating gold dust in the upper barrel. Pricing starts at: 150; $3.10-P. Click here: http://34415.asisupplier.com/. The Bottom Line: A gold star.
Spoon Me The Pitch: What’s better this time of year than a nice mug of hot cocoa by the fire? How about a nice mug of hot cocoa with a peppermint-candy stirring spoon to add a cool twist? Melville Candy Company (asi/70528) offers these boxed spoons. Item CPSP-8 starts at: 144; $10.58-W. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: Stir things up!
Cool Shades The Pitch: Looking for a stylish and useful incentive item? Eyeking (asi/51260)offers snazzy (yes, I said “snazzy”) Hobie Polarized sunglasses. Item BOOMER-50PSI, for example is a pair with a shiny black frame featuring HydroClean polycarbonate lenses, which block 100% of UVA, UVB and UVC. The lenses meet or exceed ANSI Z80.3 standards for refractive power, light transmission and impact resistance. And the supplier extends a “friendly lifetime warranty. This would be an awesome tournament prize too. Pricing for this particular pair is one for $69.99-R. See the whole line here: www.eyeking.com. The Bottom Line: A real pro.
I Heart This The Pitch: I love item AX1025 from Sticky Jewelry (asi/89811). It’s apersonalized stainless-steel heart lock key ring, which includes a key and lobster claw to attach to a belt loop. Think about this for Valentine’s programs and heart health awareness in February. Also, this is a great way for nonprofits to say, “We love our volunteers” or retail shops to say, “We love our customers.” Pricing starts at: 100; $10.16-S. Check it out: http://www.stickyj.com/ax1025.html. The Bottom Line: Lock and key.
