Is This Seat Taken? The Pitch: In the "why didn't I think of that?" category, let me introduce you to Watch My Seat (asi/95392), supplier of Seat Savers. These 8" x 8" microfiber cloths come in a variety of designs and say, "I'll be right back." So simple, yet so brilliant. An excellent idea for any venue. Think concerts, casinos, bars and more. Pricing starts at: Qty.-250; list price-$3.96; price code-T. See what I'm talking about at: www.watchmyseat.com. The Bottom Line: Take a seat.
Weird Dreams The Pitch: So far this week, my mom had a dream I was pregnant again (shoot me now) and had a baby girl this time; and my son had a dream last night that my husband and I were forming a Fleetwood Mac cover band (actually,
I sing a pretty nice rendition of "Landslide"). For everyone else who dares to dream: Kesca Body (asi/64226) has a multifunctional, therapeutic, moisturizing body candle in travel tin (item #PR45). What the heck is that, you ask? It's made of 100% pure soy bean oil, Vitamin E, lecithin and essential oils and it melts at only 2 degrees above body temperature, so the oil can be poured directly onto the skin. It can be used as moisturizer, massage oil, first aid balm and aromatherapy candle and is available in many scents, including Sweet Dreams and Tranquility. Pricing starts at: Qty.-48; list price-$14.30; price code-R. Web address: www.kescabody.com. The Bottom Line: Pour it on.
Gimme Some Skin The Pitch: You've heard of cell phone skins and iPod skins; how about laptop skins, which provide for an even larger area to promote a brand? Adhere Imaging (asi/31958) offers 12" x 5" removable vinyl skins with air-release channels, because, unlike our champagne, we do not want our laptop skins to have bubbles. Pricing starts at: Qty.-100; list price-$4.86; price code-T. Web address: www.adhereimaging.com. The Bottom Line: This idea will stick.
Tailgate Party The Pitch: There's sure to be some major bottle opening going on February 3, when the Patriots and the Giants face off (go, Giants!). I picked up this nifty tailgating item up at the Orlando ASI Show; the Original Pop Top Chiller from Strange Minded (asi/89866), a patented beverage chiller with a built-in bottle opener in the bottom. (It's designed specifically for bottles.) Pricing starts at: Qty.-500; list price-$2.62; price code-P. Web address: www.strangeminded.com. The Bottom Line: Bottoms up.
All Stressed Out and Nowhere to Go The Pitch: A big British study recently showed that work stress can kill you. Duh. Don't you love how money is spent researching things we already know? You can help your HR clients keep their employees relaxed and motivated with a stress-reduction basket, filled with aromatherapy candle (see above); massagers; inspirational books and more. And, why not throw in item #AIO-STRDX from All-in-One (asi/34256)? The Stress-O-Meter card reads stress levels with a thermo-sensitive square. It also features a tension guide and helpful hints to help reduce stress. Pricing starts at: Qty.-300; list price-$1.20; price code-R. Web address: www.allinoneline.com. The Bottom Line: Chill out, wouldja?
