It’s Spring Break week at WCU and Andrew is coming home with his friend Tyler today, so I’m in an especially good mood. I’m even cooking dinner – and that’s not like me – but who knows when they last ate something healthy. Hope these ideas get your week off to a healthy start too. Enjoy! Send any feedback directly to me: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you and it may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine.

Gee Whizzie The Pitch: Here’s an inexpensive and practical solution for plenty of promos. The all-new Whizzie SpotterTie from Valuemark by Logomark (asi/93251) is available in mini (from a mere 39 cents-C) and max (from only 69 cents-C). The fun, soft, stretchy silicone ties can be used on luggage for easy spotting, to hold cables and wires together, to hold flowers together and more. They also come in different shapes, like airplanes, sports balls, stars, etc. For more info, click here: http://bit.ly/1BYRQMp. The Bottom Line: Keep it together.
Just Ducky The Pitch: The really cute Duck Zoo Brights Flashlight from Brighter Promotions (asi/42016) is a fun idea for kid-related promotions. It’s rechargeable and features a wrist cord and a super-bright white LED. Plus, this product is part of the supplier’s fast ship program. They can ship it (up to 1000 imprinted pieces) within 48 hours after artwork is approved. Suggest it for school fundraisers, children’s hospitals, zoo souvenir shops and more.

Dig In The Pitch: AdVantage Industries (asi/31570) says this is the perfect product for garden shows and groundbreakings and I agree. It’s also perfect for farm and nursery giveaways.The stainless-steel folding garden shovel comes in a black nylon carrying case with belt loop and velcro closure.The price includes a one-color imprint on either the outside or inside of the shovel blade. A pouch imprint is available for an additional 50 cents each plus a $40 setup fee. For a more permanent decoration, the shovel blade can be sand-etched for an additional $2.50 each plus $50 setup. It’s also gift boxed. Read more at: http://bit.ly/1EvjNh0. The Bottom Line: Calling all green thumbs.
Cool Cap The Pitch: When I saw this product fromAmerican Apparel (asi/35297),I immediately got “Push It” by Salt-n-Pepa stuck in my head. Are you singing it now? Anyway, I digress, as I often do. The Salt & Pepper cap will appeal to any fashionable demographic. Suggest it for college stores and concerts. It’s a mid-rise, six-panel cap featuring an adjustable snap-back closure, and a built-in cotton sweatband. It’s constructed from the ultra-soft Mock Twist blend of polyester, cotton and rayon.
