Just Relax The Pitch: Anyone who's going to help me relax is A-OK in my book. Relax Right (asi/81666) offers plenty of products to help you do just that and item #71000 is a thermo-sensitive memory foam travel pillow designed to support the neck while in a seated position. This is great for travel-related clients, but also think automotive and how about a gift-with-purchase of a mattress or bedding? It also includes a plush antimicrobial velour cover that is machine washable. Pricing starts at: 12; $21-R. Web address: http://www.relaxrightproducts.com/. The Bottom Line: Sleep tight.
Sexy Time The Pitch: People magazine has revealed its Sexiest Man of the Year and believe it or not, it's not Joe Haley of The Joe Show, above. I don't want to give it away, so you will just have to Google it. Help any fella feel better about himself with item BF-GRMKIT from Apparelstar Inc. (asi/36539). Thenine- piece personal grooming kitincludes: a 3-in-1 battery-operated groomer with cap and ergonomic handle featuring shaver, nose trimmer (every guy needs a nose trimmer), sideburn trimmer, and 2 adjustable-length comb attachments; cleaning brush; comb; and stand. It comes gift boxed too. Think about salons, spas, barbershops and more. Pricing starts at: one for $23-P. Click here: http://www.apparelstarimports.com/. The Bottom Line: Shave and a haircut.
I Do The Pitch: How adorable are Prince William and his new fiancée Kate Middleton? Their engagement is big news (I remember watching his mama marry Prince Charles). I mean, it's not as exciting as Wearables Editor C.J. Mittica's engagement is to us here in the Editorial Department, but still. The Magnet Group (asi/68507) has a terrific “Save the Date product: Item PF01FCL is a wedding cake picture frame magnet with an oval punch out for the announcement or photoand the supplier says it's always in stock. Nobody used “Save the Date” announcements when I got engaged. We just invited people to the wedding and took our chances that they could make it, but hey! This just gives you another opportunity to make more money! Pricing starts at: 250; 0.67-R. Click here to see similar frames: http://www.themagnetgroup.com/. And for more info on this particular product, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: Get hitched.
Winning Results The Pitch: Like I said above, I look for any excuse to celebrate. One of the things on my to-do list for today is to choose the Advantages Sales Rep of the Year. I already have the Sales Support Person of the Year picked out, but you will have to stay tuned. It's a fun part of my job to pick such winners. Any champ would surely appreciate the stunning Celebration award made of art glass on a black base from Crystal D (asi/47759). Item 7227B starts at: 6; $70.68-R. Click here: http://www.crystal-d.com/catalog/7227B. The Bottom Line: For the good times.
