Good afternoon, everybody! So, "American Idol" guys' night. Your thoughts?

Boo Ya The Pitch: I received a box full of fun things from CleggPromo (asi/45450), including their brand-new Boo Loo pen. It quacks when you shake it. I kid you not. I have it on my desk and am planning to annoy many a coworker with it. I think this would be great for school fundraisers and awesome for sporting events, since it makes a lot of noise, like me. Pricing starts at: 100; $3.29-R. Email: email@example.com. The Bottom Line: Get quacking.
Wine Time The Pitch: OK, this product isn't inexpensive, but it is one of the most unique offerings in the ad specialty industry. Item WA200 from Spector & Co (asi/88660) is a Wine Aroma Kit, available for red or white. It includes 12 characteristic aromas, informative scent cards, a brochure and an interactive notepad. This is a nice loyalty or incentive gift and would be great for wine hobbyists and tasting events. Pricing starts at: 8; $189-R. Click here: www.spectorandco.com. The Bottom Line: The nose knows.
Happy Birthday The Pitch: Dr. Seuss would be 107 today. Do you know his first book was rejected by 30 publishers? Doesn't that make you feel better about rejection? Anyway, this product won't be rejected and will be appreciated by all. Send birthday greetings to your best clients (and theirs) with item #302120 from Chocolate Chocolate (asi/44897).It's a one-pound box of certified-Kosher milk chocolate and it comes with candles and balloons. For pricing and other information, click here: www.chocolate2.com. The Bottom Line: They will eat this up.
Blooming Buddies The Pitch: It smells like spring outside today, which makes me very happy. Pop-a-Buds from Points of Light (asi/78825) are perfect for springtime promotions and will make lots of people happy too. They are planter cans with pop-top lids. Inside you will find nutrient-rich, expandable soil wafer and random seed packet, unless you specify Zinnia, Daisy, Forget-Me-Not or Marigold. Pricing starts at: 100; $3.44-R. Click here: www.polpromo.com. The Bottom Line: Grow your business.
