Run Away The Pitch: This morning, my husband was looking for his sneakers. I said, “Aren’t they in the closet?” He said, “No, those are my running shoes.” I replied, “You run?” In fact, he does not, but at least he has the shoes for it. Those energetic types who actually do run would appreciate item R40 from Essef Distributors (asi/52710). It’s the cutest keychain with a realistic little running shoe attached. Wouldn’t this be great for charity runs, track meets, running clubs and more? Pricing starts at: 300; $1.35-R. See it here: http://www.thelincolnline.com/UI/-Running-Shoe-Kc.aspx?ptype=3&pid=151. The Bottom Line: Make strides.
Grill Master The Pitch: Yesterday, we had the big family barbecue here for Mother’s Day and The Magnet Group (asi/68507) has a fabulous set that would have come in handy. Item K16BL is a cool blue silicone barbecue set with a silicone-handle spatula, basting brush, fork and silicone oven mitt in a carrying case. This is a nice idea for employee and customer appreciation gifts, as well as barbecue restaurant giveaways. Pricing starts at: 10; $32.99-R. Click here: http://www.themagnetgroup.com/K16-promotional-product-219.aspx. The Bottom Line: All fired up.
Silicon Solution The Pitch: Here’s another very unique silicon item: A flexible keyboard that packs up into a small, easy-to-store, easy-to-travel-with pack. It’s from Global Reach Network (asi/57582) and pricing starts at: 100; $19.58-R. Email: email@example.com for more information. The Bottom Line: Pack it in.
Frame Game The Pitch: It’s that time of year, when lots of college kids are graduating (unlike Bill Gates, that slacker). This would be a fun gift. The Frame-It Flex Heavy-Duty Window/Photo Mouse Pad (item FF4R8), which they can take to their new desk at their new job (unless they will be taking a year off to find themselves). It’s from Digispec (asi/49716) and pricing starts at: 100; $3.83-R. Of course this would work well in any number of programs, including techno trade show booth traffic-builders. You can see it here: http://www.digispec.com/mousepads/frameit-flex.php. The Bottom Line: Photo opportunity.
