Fat Cats The Pitch: Too much food and not enough exercise accounts for the proliferation of pudgy pets. A recent report shows that more than half of them in the U.S. are overweight, with 20% of dogs being classified as “obese” (that’s a lot of Kibbles ‘n Bits). Let’s get these puppies walkin’! Here’s a unique, new idea too: A reflective leash cover for nighttime jaunts. Item #603-2380 is from The WOV-IN Group (asi/92980). Pricing starts at: 100; $3.15-R.

Have a Slice The Pitch: According to Domino’s, the average American eats 23 pounds of pizza a year. This stat makes me crave a delicious slice … or three. Pizza and beer – what could be better? How about this great idea from Nationwide Promotions LLC (asi/73464)? Item PCBO is a patented pizza cutter and bottle opener in one. It’s awesome! Think about pizza shops (of course) and school fundraisers. This would actually be ideal to go along with those pizza-kit fundraisers kids are always involved with. Pricing starts at: 100; $3.49-R. Check it out: http://nationwidepromotions.com/. The Bottom Line: A cut above … seriously.
Easy Listening The Pitch: Right now, I’m listening to that Esperanza Spalding woman who beat out Justin Bieber for the Best New Artist Grammy (thank God; forgive me if you’re a Belieber). Her music is very relaxing and my handy headphones do a good job of canceling out the editorial department noise, so I can focus on writing your “Hot Deals.” I think any employee would appreciate a great set of headphones and Meximi (asi/70899) offers over-the-head noise-canceling headphones that reduce ambient noise by 87.4%. They have a foldable and swivel design, monitor switch, 38mm dome type, neodymium drivers and in-flight adaptor. I don’t know what all that means but I’m sure the supplier can explain it to you. This is a fabulous idea for incentive programs, employee loyalty initiatives and the travel market. Pricing starts at: 25; $69-R.
