Hey There, Big Boy
The Pitch: We’re gonna need a bigger onesie. Did you hear about that 16-pound baby born in Texas? Can I just say, “OUCH!”? They say that’s normally the size of a 6-month old and Alpha Shirt Company (asi/34408) has adorable infant T-shirt rompers ranging from 6 months to 24 months. They have a three-snap closure for easy access for diaper changes and they come in a variety of cool colors, including Texas Orange, which would be perfect for this big boy. Think of these for pediatric units, day-care centers, babysitting services and Mommy-and-Me-type classes. Pricing starts at: one for $13.02-P.

Put Me in, Coach The Pitch: When you’re ready to play, Zipboard Inc. (asi/99039) has the perfect product: dry-erase, retractable whiteboards that expand to a rigid workspace and are available in six sports, as well as blank. Think of these for coaches at schools and recreation leagues, so they can diagram plays during games. They start at: one for $34.99 and you can check them out here: http://www.thezipboard.com/. The Bottom Line: Write and roll.
Cool Tools The Pitch: If your construction or home-improvement clients have a sweet tooth (and who doesn’t? Let’s be honest), Apple Cookie & Chocolate Company (asi/36560) has the right idea. Item #35TB is a reusable tool box filled with chocolate-chip cookies and milk-chocolate tools. Pricing starts at: 24; $28.99. Email email@example.com for info about this specific item and get your mouth watering by seeing some of their other offerings right here: http://www.applecookies.com/default.aspx. The Bottom Line: All boxed in.
Take a Big Sip The Pitch: This morning, I spilled coffee all over my adorable outfit after I took the lid off my travel mug. I did this because the sippy hole is too small and I get barely any coffee out of it when I take a drink. Time for a new travel mug and I like this new version from Contigo By Ignite USA (asi/62200): The West Loop 16-oz. travel mug with patented AutoSeal® technology is spill-proof and leak-proof. You press a button to sip and release it to seal the mug. The double-wall, vacuum-insulated, stainless-steel keeps drinks hot for 4 hours and cold for up to 12 hours. This could be tops in any employee appreciation program and a nice gift for auto dealers and a great souvenir at Internet cafes too. Pricing starts at: 48; $20.99.
