Square Biz The Pitch: First, this supplier's name is great. You Oughtta Be on Chocolate (asi/92396) says it all. Second, item #135 is a perfect party favor. It's a Kosher, chocolate square CD, in a CD case with insert and a fancy ribbon. Any picture, image or message can be imprinted right on the surface of the chocolate. Pricing starts at: 100; $7.93-T. Check it out: http://www.yoboc.com/. The Bottom Line: Picture this.
Play Date The Pitch: We had a mad-crazy Scrabble game going on here on Christmas day. I don't even know who eventually won, as I was busy cooking dinner for 20, which takes a little concentration. But who doesn't love Scrabble, and did you know it was invented by Alfred Butts? Well, E.E. Distribution (asi/51217) offersScrabble for those on the go and it comes in a travel case. Think of this for travel clients, kid-related programs, spelling bees, special events and more. Pricing starts at: 4; $31.53-S. Click here: http://www.entertainmentearth.com/. The Bottom Line: Word up.
Behind the Eight Ball The Pitch: Billiards are also big around our house on Christmas day. That's what the guys do ... all day long, before I demand that Steve come upstairs and mash the potatoes (that's the least he can do, right?). Anaconda Sports (asi/35933) has an item that's just right for any pool aficionado. Think tournaments and executive gifts and incentives. Item MG-BSTIC is a billiard stick with chalk and carry bag. The stick and the case can be printed with a company logo and brand. Pricing starts at: 250; $23-R. See it here: http://www.anacondapromo.com/. The Bottom Line: On cue.
Love Is in the Air The Pitch: Ah, young love. Hugh Hefner is engaged to a 24-year old. Isn't that special? I guess if you like the grandfatherly type (or really rich old guys), that's the way to go. Planning a wedding can be stressful for any couple and Peter Pauper Press (asi/77802) offers a 16-month compact engagement diary and the cover says “Keep calm and carry on.” It's a hardcover in weekly planner format with notes and address section. Pricing starts at: 100; $9.61-R. Think of this for bridal shops, wedding locations, jewelry stores and more. Click here: http://www.peterpauper.com/. The Bottom Line: Get hitched.
