My husband is in Wyoming (where the deer and the antelope play) and apparently, a blizzard is coming here in the Northeast, so I see a lot shoveling in my near future. I’m freaking out a little, but not enough, of course, to stop me from bringing you a flurry of ideas. Enjoy this edition and send your feedback directly to me: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you and it may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine. For free information on products featured in Advantages, click here: www.advantagesinfo.com.

Jot It Down The Pitch: Perfect for all kinds of promotions,the Scribbler from HandStands (asi/59525) is a dry-erase board you can stick anywhere. Sticky Pad Technology grips to most surfaces including vinyl, metal, plastic and laminate, allowing the recipient to jot notes anywhere: fridge, desk, car dashboard, console, bathroom mirror, locker and more. It includes a dry-erase marker with eraser end and a slot for easy marker storage. Suggest it for new hire welcome gifts, college recruitment efforts, auto promotions and more.Check it out:http://bit.ly/1CIyc77. The Bottom Line: Leave a reminder.
Dunk It The Pitch: Just made my annual purchase of Girl Scout Cookies (Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties) and if you, too, are placing cookie orders for your clients, be sure to suggest the Cookie Dipr from Quickpoint (asi/80150) as an add on. It’s new for 2015 and as the name implies, it helps you dip your cookies into milk (or whatever you want to dip them in) without getting fingers messy. Pricing starts at: 100; $2.50-C.

Girly Girls The Pitch: As someone who regularly buys cosmetics of all types (and I’ve got the drawers full to prove it), I know I’d appreciate a gift oflip gloss or nail polish from Diamond Cosmetics Inc. (asi/49640). They have tons of colors available, with names like Bahama Mama, Fab Original and It’s Never Too Late. And it’s never too late for you to suggest these for any female-focused promotions.

Team Pride The Pitch: I don’t have a horse in the race (is that what they say?), but I’m rooting for the Seahawks on Sunday. How about you? No matter what team you’re pulling for, you can’t go wrong suggesting the TEAM365 collection from alphabroder (asi/34063). New for 2015, the performance apparel is meant to outfit teams, coaches and supporters with authentic team gear. A wide variety of pieces is available. For more information, click here: http://bit.ly/1yIKkUa. The Bottom Line: That’s the spirit.
