Yeah, Baby! The Pitch: I guess I lacked creativity when I named my sons plain-old Matthew and Andrew. I just read that these days, the fastest-rising baby names for boys are: Castiel, Bentley, Eoin (say what?), Easton and Lucian. For girls, they are: Tenley, Harper, Everleigh, Martina and Sookie (at least it’s not Snooki). Peter Pauper Press Inc. (asi/77802)offers item #9250, The Little Book of Baby Names by Karen Kaufman Orloff. It includes more than 4000 names, variations, and nicknames, with origins and meanings grouped by gender. This is a fun idea for obstetricians, maternity wards, baby showers and any group targeting expectant parents. Pricing starts at: 100; $8.03-R. Click here: http://www.peterpauper.com/. The Bottom Line: Book it.
Save Me The Pitch: Great idea for your golf-related clients right here, folks. Stromberg Brand (asi/89955) offers item CPTB-1, the Golf Club Saver Umbrella, which fits on your golf bag and protects your clubs from the rain. You don’t want your clubs to have a bad hair day, do you? OK, now I’m just being silly. Pricing starts at:25; $15.50-R. See it here: http://www.strombergbrand.com. The Bottom Line: Protect and serve.
Krazy Kat The Pitch: My cat Sneakers thinks he’s a dog. One recent morning, for instance, when Steve and I decided to go for a walk, he followed us every step of the way, like he was a puppy. We laughed. You know what else makes cats funny? Catnip. The Page Seed Company (asi/25760)offersthePetGrazingGarden, which includes six packets of seeds for these pet-safe favorites: Catnip, Chamomile, Parsley, Thyme, Spinach and Pet Salad Blend. Pricing starts at: one for $5-P. For more info, go to: www.pageseed.com. The Bottom Line: The cat’s meow.
Bamboo-ti-ful The Pitch: Don’t you just love salad hands? Well, Totally Bamboo (asi/91565)offers brand-new “NewBoo” salad hands made entirely from rapidly renewable bamboo. Item #20-2124 would be a nice addition to a food-filled basket, or BBQ gift pack. Pricing for blanks starts at: 10; $20-P and added fees apply for laser engraving. Email Amy: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: I gotta hand it to them.
