No Stress, No Mess The Pitch:How many times have you wanted to punch your computer? (Or is it only me who has anger issues?)Toddy Gear (asi/91411) alleviates the stress and the smudges with the Stress Ball/Screen Cleaner made with plush microfiber. The dye-sublimation process delivers vibrant imprint color and the item is 100% customizable. Suggest it for new employee welcome gifts, college recruitment events (“take the stress out of your decision”) and more. Pricing starts at: 50; 46.50-R.

Hey There, Cookie The Pitch:Last Thursday was National Cookie Day. Sorry if you missed it. We had a big poll going on over on our ASI Facebook page asking what everyone’s favorite is. Chocolate chip seemed to be the consensus, but I liked Patrick Spanky-Murtaugh’s response the best: “Any cookie that makes it into my hand.” You can’t go wrong with cookies from Oh Sugar! LLC (asi/74868), specifically Nams Bits, their scrumptious bite-sized chocolate chip cookies, made with hand-cracked eggs and real butter. Yum! These are great client gifts and guest welcome gifts at B&Bs. For other available treat flavors and packaging options, click here: http://bit.ly/1A8qvnd. The Bottom Line: They will eat this up.
Party Starter The Pitch: Love these plantable invitations from Bloomin Promotions (asi/40646). Party on and then plant a garden of wildflowers! They have stock designs for all occasions; you just send your client’s event details and they will be printed on the seed paper in full-color using environmentally-safe inks. Aren’t these the best idea for any celebration? Pricing starts at: 100; $2.93-P. Check out all info here: http://bit.ly/1vEMuD1. The Bottom Line: Get wild.
Run, Baby, Run The Pitch: My trusty sidekick here at Advantages magazine is Chris Ruvo, who ran the Turkey Trot (a 5K) with his brother on Thanksgiving morn. Better him than me. For such events, I recommend the 5K Small Oval Running Medal from All-Secure Graphics LLC (asi/34355). It’s available with gold, silver, or bronze trim. You can get it for as low as $3.44-R. And you can get neck ribbons at an additional charge. For more info, click here: http://bit.ly/12i4UNW. The Bottom Line: A clear winner.
