How are you feeling this Monday? I'm feeling old. My oldest son turned 25 on Saturday! Of course, I birthed him when I was 15 (ahem; no comments from the peanut gallery). Anyway, here's this week's batch of fresh ideas. Enjoy this edition and send any feedback directly to me: email@example.com. 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.

Good Decision The Pitch: Executives make tons of decisions daily: Should we order in pizza for lunch? Will my boss notice if I sneak out a half hour early? Should I make one last bathroom run before I sit in traffic? Lighten up their heavy load with the Magic 8 Ball Executive Decision Maker from Alpi International Ltd. (asi/34415). Pitch it for HR-related promotions and more. Pricing starts at: 150; $3.53-R.

That's Hot The Pitch: My college-aged son and his buddies would love one of these ball-shaped charcoal grills for their front porch. They come in a variety of styles and would make excellent fundraiser prizes, employee gifts, event rewards and more. They are also any tailgater's delight and, according to Hot Sports Grills (asi/61843), 50 million people tailgated last year (I was one of them, on several occasions).

Rubbed the Right Way The Pitch: Propose this set of three spice rubs with the above-mentioned grill sale (hey, why not?). The set is from MidNite Snax (asi/71685) and it's available in Beef & Burger, Chicken & Poultry, and Fish & Seafood flavors. I am craving some BBQ right now. A 50-piece minimum order is required per flavor. The price includes a four-color process label on the lid and body wrap. For pricing details and other info, click here: http://bit.ly/1FLyQ17. The Bottom Line: Zesty, tasty.
Cool Beans The Pitch: Here in the editorial department, it's either freezing like the tundra or hot and sticky like the swamp. On the days I feel like Swamp Thing, the iCool USB-powered desk fan from Gold Bond Worldwide (asi/57653) would come in handy. It adjusts 360 degrees up and down. The supplier suggests customizing it for employees, interns, new hires and more. I'd also suggest pitching it for colleges to give to new students ("hope your semester will be a breeze"). Get it for as low as $4.99. Click here: http://bit.ly/1Qil6pU. The Bottom Line: Get wind of it.
