What an Animal The Pitch: How would you like an animal on your head? It's actually all the rage (look around at the teenagers in your life). Rogen Studios (asi/82705) offers fun plush animal hats, starting at 24; $17.50. See the selection here: http://rogenstudio.com. The Bottom Line: The zoo crew.
A Cup of Cheer The Pitch: For some holiday cheer, check out this video (I love this kid!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzJkGupFJdc. If you'd like a cup of cheer for your clients, why not tell them about the Old-Fashioned Cider Mix, with their choice of message and choice of package and hangtag? It's from Little Black Dress Promotions (asi/67735) and pricing starts at: 48; $12.96. This is a nice way to warm up any relationship. Check it out: http://www.littleblackdresspromotions.com. The Bottom Line: Sip the cider.
Hearty Appetite The Pitch: As I'm eating my mushrooms, which I packed in my adorable purple lunch tote (everyone mistakes it for a purse), I'm thinking, every girl should have an adorable lunch tote. Well,BuiltNY (asi/42422)has a great new Spicy Relish tote that's extra-roomy(for days you can't get by on yogurt and mushrooms alone). It has a nifty removable shoulder strap and is machine-washable too and pricing starts at: 12; $32.50. Check it out: http://www.primeline.com. The Bottom Line: Pack it in.
