Happy Presidents'Day! I'm just sitting here drinking my coffee and eating my favorite apple cider donuts from the local farm market. Doesn't that sound cozy?

The Cowboy Way The Pitch: Did you know President Ulysses S. Grant got a speeding ticket for riding his horse too fast? All I can say is, whoa! Openers Plus (asi/63073) has a cowboy-boot-shaped bottle opener/key chain that would make any cowboy or cowgirl say "yippee ki ay!" This is a fun item for rodeos, equestrian events, western-themed restaurants and bars and more. Upsell it with a bandana! Pricing starts at: 250; $1.74-R. Click here: http://www.getthetopoff.com/.The Bottom Line: Boot-scootin' business.
Fill 'Er Up The Pitch: You probably know this already, but Abe Lincoln was the tallest U.S. president at 6 ft. 4 inches. Chemical Light (asi/44888) has the perfect item for a tall drink of water (or beer, preferably). Item LIT883 is a 24-oz. tall pilsner glass with multi-colored LED lights. Honestly (as Abe would say), this is perfect for bars and special events. Pricing starts at: 216; $5.35-R. Seriously, you must check it out here: http://www.asi44888.com/. The Bottom Line: Turn it on.
Green Thumb The Pitch: Theodore Roosevelt created the U.S. Forest Service, so don't you think, if he was around for the computer age, he would have loved this item from WBPromotion (asi/98409)?Of course he would have! Item BRNCH-FD128MB is a 128 MB tree-branch-shaped USB drive. Think about Earth Day promotions, agricultural colleges, anything with a nature theme and, yes, even openings of branch offices. Pricing starts at: 100; $8.038-R. You can look it up on ESP, or for more info, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: Out on a limb.
Pet Project The Pitch: President Clinton's cat's name was Socks. My cat's name is Sneakers. White paws, get it? Looks like we are both just as creative in making up cat names. No matter whether your pet's name is clever or not, this is definitely a creative pet product fromEvans Mfg. Inc. (asi/52840). Item #3240 is the small Scoop-It bowl, which works for cats and small dogs. It's a combo scooper and bowl as the name implies. Pricing starts at:150; $1.69-R. Click here: http://www.evans-mfg.com/. The Bottom Line: The cat's meow.
