Celebrate! The Pitch: Did you know yesterday was National Parents' Day? Why? Didn't we just celebrate Mother's and Father's Days? Every day is a holiday these days and holidays call for fun beverages. And fun beverages call for fun drinkware from Brighter Promotions (asi/42016). Pitch the multi-color LED light-up 20-oz. mason jar with straw for any party atmosphere. Get it for $5.90-R. Click here for more info: http://bit.ly/1KtRX58. The Bottom Line: Light the night.
You Must Be a Redneck The Pitch: My father-in-law, Gerry, thinks duct tape fixes everything. Natural Trends, LLC (asi/73497) offers the Ultimate Redneck Repair Kit, featuring the 3-oz. can of WD-40 and a 6-yard roll of duct tape. It's a fun idea for all the DIYers out there. For pricing and other info, click here: http://bit.ly/1S87U88. The Bottom Line: Mr. Fix-it.
Open Up The Pitch: Something as simple as a jar opener can make a big impact. I know I use them all the time. The Royal Line (asi/83770) now offers a vinyl jar opener and they claim you will no longer have to bang your jar of pickles with a butter knife to get it open. Suggest it for grocery store promotions and include it in new homeowner welcome baskets. It's available in 12 colors and you can get it for as low as 50 cents-A. Click here for more info: http://bit.ly/1U2p44p. The Bottom Line: Easy breezy.
Cereal Sales The Pitch: Hey, Mikey! He likes it! (If you don't remember that commercial for Life cereal, Google it; I don't know how I lived without Google, BTW.) Admints & Zagabor (asi/31516) offers custom laminated cereal boxes that can be filled with cereal or other tasty treats. It's a cute idea for all sorts of promotions (fundraisers, health-related events, etc.). To check it out, click here: http://bit.ly/1D2tLqU. The Bottom Line: Boxed in.
