Sappy Sales The Pitch: I bring you a maple-y good gift set featuring pure maple syrup, maple spread, jellied maple spread and granulated maple sugar. (Where are my pancakes?) It's from Heritage Yamaska Dabbotsford Sugarbush (asi/60595). Say this supplier's name 10 times fast. Item #676-430 starts at: 24; $14.28-R. Click here: http://www.heritageyamaska.com/. The Bottom Line: Pour it on.
State ofMind The Pitch: This just in: Vermont is the healthiest state in all of the land, according to the United Health Foundation. In a tip of the hat to the Green Mountain State, Entrees to Excellence (asi/52507) offers Chocolates of Vermont (item LC02011), a collection, the supplier says, "made from the rich, pure, natural tastes and memorable moods of New England." I seem to be on a food kick this edition, huh? Well, food does make a perfect holiday gift. Pricing for this item starts at: 1; $27.85-T. You can't taste it here, but you can see it here: http://www.entreestoexcellence.com/p-113-chocolates-of-vermont-2785.aspx. The Bottom Line: For the sweet tooth.
What's the Plan? The Pitch: My dad says a lot of crazy things (don't all dads?). But this always holds true: "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." Helping out with all that planning is Waldor Products (asi/94770), which is offering 10% off EQP on their weekly and monthly planners. Click here: http://www.waldorproducts.com/. The Bottom Line: Take note.
You're Covered The Pitch: Now this is a hot deal. Actually, it's kind of a warm and cozy deal. Heritage Sportswear Inc. (asi/60582) is offering the adult relay jacket for only $9.99 through November 30. The jacket is wind- and water-resistant and has safety reflective piping around the chest and collar. Check it out: http://web.herspw.com/. The Bottom Line: It's a winner.
In the Fold The Pitch: It's all in the presentation and JP Graphics Inc. (asi/63058) will give you 10% off your order of presentation folders through November. These will come in handy for all those kick-off meetings in January. To get the discount, enter coupon code GD5MPLP8 in your shopping cart (I love coupons … and shopping carts). Go here: http://www.justprintonline.com/hiflex/index.php. The Bottom Line: Keepin' it together.
