Rock out with these ideas to get your week off to a rock-star start. Enjoy this edition and send any feedback directly to me: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Throw Shade The Pitch: Sunglasses are a perfect giveaway for concerts, sporting events, company picnics, summer camps, recruitment fairs – you name it.Pop! Promos (asi/45657) offers custom, color-matched sunglasses in addition to an expanding line of other items, like the Brandana. Plus, Erin and Sterling have an interesting back story, which began at boarding school. Cool company, cool products. For all information, click here: http://bit.ly/1JTFypP. The Bottom Line: All eyes.
Wine To Go The Pitch: We tailgated, naturally, before the concert last night. Steve played air guitar, air drums and sang into his beer bottle (picture it if you will) to The Who’s music someone was blasting very loudly. The all new Vinnebago from Simba (asi/87296) would have been a perfect accompaniment for me, as I prefer the Pinot over the brew. It’s a stainless-steel wine and beverage thermos that keeps 750 ml of liquid cold for 25 hours or hot for 12 hours. It is fully customizable with laser engraving. Pitch this for parties, weddings and other special events. For pricing and other info, click here: http://bit.ly/1QXjSx7. The Bottom Line: Chillin’ like a villain.
Pet Project The Pitch: I totally need this for that mad shedder, Sneakers.PromoPet (asi/79698) offers a new and retractable pet brush. Suggest it for all your clients’ pet-related promos and think outside the box a bit. You could suggest it for vacation rentals and hotels that allow pets. You can get it for as low as $2.45-C. For more info, click here: http://bit.ly/1PRiMkk. And just because I like you, click here for this funny cat video: http://bit.ly/1c0vWy1 The Bottom Line: Get grooming.
Little Garden The Pitch: What a unique and fun idea for school programs! Pinemax (asi/78135) offers Sprout, the plantable pencil. When the pencil sharpens down to a stub, simply plant it and grow basil, mint, parsley, cilantro or cherry tomatoes. (Right now, I’m thinking caprese salad for lunch.) Get it for as low as $2.75-C. Click here for more: http://bit.ly/1FnV7q0. The Bottom Line: All about the sprout.
