Bearish The Pitch: I don't know about you, but just looking at a polar bear makes me feel cooler. Chulani (asi/45100) has an adorable polar bear pen, which would be perfect for zoos, an Alaskan cruise line or other touristy type promotion, and any client you'd like to chill out with. The supplier also says that polar bears signify strength and purity. Who knew? Pricing starts at: 100; $2.20. Click here: http://www.chulani.com/. The Bottom Line: Polar power.
Blow It Up The Pitch: We have a sign out back that says "It's cool by the pool." And it is. Thisflip-flop-shaped inflatable raft from Best Promo Ltd. (asi/40301) is also very cool. This is a unique idea for swim clubs, resorts and as a gift with purchase for buying a swimming pool. Pricing starts at: 1000; $24.09. Email: email@example.com. The Bottom Line: Float this idea.
Beer Here The Pitch: Is there anything better than a nice, cold brew on a day like today? If only work would not get in the way of that. Well, you can have a taste of beer any time, any day with custom beer-flavored lip balm that comes in a beer-can shaped container. You can also get various flavors in soda-can containers. The possibilities for this item are endless: bars, parties, beer distributors and more. It's from Snugz/USA Inc. (asi/88060) and it also is SPF 15. Pricing for custom flavors starts at a minimum of 2500 pieces at $1.32. Click here: http://www.snugzusa.com/. The Bottom Line: Lip-smacking sales.
It's a Breeze The Pitch: This is a perfect gift for new moms with summer babies, and a nice giveaway from spas and salons, Realtors in seaside towns and oceanside resorts (wish I was at one now). It's the Ocean Breeze spa to go, which includes: 4 oz. ocean breeze bath gel, bath sponge and 4 oz. pacific bath salts. It's from SafeHaven Products (asi/84495) and pricing starts at: 75; $5.90.
