friends. Listen, can you do me a fave? When you have something
to say about Hot Deals, e-mail me directly at the address
I have here, rather than just replying to the Hot Deals inbox?
When you do that, your e-mail gets terribly buried amidst a barrage
of "enlargement" and Viagra messages. On that note,
hope your day is looking up.

What a Trip The Pitch: Yesterday,
the guy who invented LSD died (or did I only hallucinate that?). Albert
Hofmann was 102 and will be sadly missed by '60s hippies everywhere,
if they still have enough brain cells to remember him. How about some tie-dye
to cheer you up? Dyenomite
(asi/51185) offers the Bollinger Spider cotton short-sleeve team
tie dye, which puts a unique twist on team or group apparel. Starts at:
Qty.-12; list price-$13.18; price code-P. 2XL and 3XL sizes will
involve additional costs. Also check out our tie-dye showcase in the upcoming
June issue of Advantages magazine. Web address: www.dyenomite.com. The Bottom Line: Feelin' groovy.
You Can Never Be Too Safe The Pitch: You've
heard of death by chocolate? How about safety by chocolate? Chocolate
Chocolate (asi/44897) wants
you to know that June is National Safety Month and they've got plenty
of delicious items to help you out. From milk-chocolate hard-hats that
say "Think Safety," to fire hats and bars with wrappers that
say, "It can't hurt to be too safe," this supplier has
got you covered. Check out their offerings and prices in their Express
Collection (ready to ship in three or less
working days) at: www.chocolate2.com. The Bottom Line: Sweet safety.
Back Off, Bacteria The Pitch: Yeast
is only good if you're baking (not
that I have hands-on experience). Any germaphobe would appreciate HPC
(asi/58805) antimicrobial pens, with technology that prevents
the growth of microbes such as bacteria, mold, mildew and yes, yeast. Great
idea for hospitals, doctors, schools and daycares and more. They have sales
pricing on item #SF3319 too: Qty.-500; list price-.34; price code-R. Web
address: www.hpcglobal.com. Expires
12/31/08. The Bottom Line: The gift of good health.
Nice Set The Pitch: The other
night, when we schlepped our bottle of cabernet over to our favorite BYOB Chinese
restaurant, I thought, we really could use a wine carrier (at least I had the "class" to
take it out of the brown paper bag). Gold
Bond Inc. (asi/57653) has a sale on item #DWCS,
Deluxe Wine Carrier Gift Set, featuring padded interior for bottle and tools that
are included, like drip ring, corkscrew and foil cutter, and bottle stopper. It
comes in a gift box. This is a very nice idea for wineries and BYOBs and would
make a perfect gift for wine lovers and editors named Kathy. Qty.-24; list
price-$16.50; price code-R. Web address: www.goldbondinc.com. The Bottom Line: Uncork a sale.
Shiny, Happy People The Pitch: I
have what you'd call oily skin. In
fact, when we were first married, my husband woke up next to me one morning
and said, "I can see myself in your face." True story. Call
him Romeo. Anyway, as simple as it may seem, a product like item #FT950
from Via! For Travel (asi/93757), really gets someone
like me excited. It's a designer oil blotter paper holder, quality
silver-nickel-plated, with convenient mirror inside. And it includes 50
blotter sheets to help absorb excess oils and keep faces shine-free. Pricing
starts at: Qty.-100; list price-$10; price code-R. Think
of your spa and salon clients as terrific targets. Wouldn't this
be fun to receive after that expensive facial? Web address: www.viafortravel.com. The Bottom Line: No greasy mess.
