All Bottled Up The Pitch: You have a can, but you want a bottle. Footprints USA (asi/55030) offers Bottle It, the “safe, sanitary and fun way to drink from a can.” It’s patented and FDA approved and snaps onto most 8-, 12- and 16-oz. cans, eliminating spills and the taste of the can (ew, right?). It’s available with an optional lid to eliminate dirt and bugs. Think beverage promotions, festivals, tailgating and company picnics. Pricing starts at: 50; $2-R. Check it out: http://bit.ly/17YLnFC. The Bottom Line: Top it off.
Party Time The Pitch: I was rooting for the Packers and the Colts, based on the cuteness of their quarterbacks, but congrats Patriots and Seahawks fans (those QBs are also not too shabby) and get ready for those Super Bowl parties. American Made Cutlery (asi/35560) offers next-quantity pricing through May 31 on cutlery you’ll need for your cheese platters and spreads. Take the Super Spreader, for instance. It’s a useful gift that ensures your client’s logo will be seen year after year, all year long. Suggest it for grocery stores, dairy farms, restaurants, bakeries and more. Check it out here: http://bit.ly/1BVrOsR. The Bottom Line: Spread goodwill.
Get Your Veggies The Pitch: While at the ASI Orlando show, I visited the booth ofBloomin’ Promotions (asi/40646). There I found the Veggie Pocket Garden (there’s also an herb version). The four-color envelope contains seeded paper in the shapes of different vegetables and when planted, they turn into a veggie garden. Trust me, they are so cute and will be appreciated by gardeners of all types. Suggest them for any client who wants to grow their business (and who doesn’t?). For pricing and other info, click here: http://bit.ly/1yzKPyp. The Bottom Line: This is how your garden grows.
Book It The Pitch: Supplier BookWear (asi/41044) has come up with what they call a “novel” idea. Pun intended. The packaging looks like a book (with your client’s message on the cover) and you can choose from 20 imprintable gifts as the surprise inside each (flashlight, T-shirt, puzzle, USB drive, pillow case, etc.). These are a fun and unique way to say thanks, congratulations, welcome and more. Check it all out here, including a short video: http://bit.ly/1sUSOa6. The Bottom Line: Story time.
