Rappz Star The Pitch: If you’re looking for a unique sports giveaway or fundraiser, Showdown Displays (asi/87188) offers a line of cooler wraps called Rappz. They cover everything from ½-gallon jugs to 100-quart coolers at various price points. They are made from extremely durable neoprene. Check them out here: http://www.showdowndisplays.com/. The Bottom Line: It’s a wrap.
No Flu for You The Pitch: It’s getting to be cold and flu season and Prime Line (asi/79530) has gel sanitizer in a pump bottle for as low as $3.18-C. Sell this to gyms all year long too so that sweaty, germy people can sanitize after touching sweaty, germy equipment. Same with supermarkets. Pitch these so that each cashier can have them at their registers. Suggest it for auto dealers so that drivers can keep sanitizer in their cup holders for use before restaurants. (See? I’m always thinking.) Click here: http://www.primeline.com/. The Bottom Line: Get pumped.
Master of Ceremonies The Pitch: And the award goes to … you, if you suggest one of the many elegant awards from the Windsor Collection by Glass America (asi/71920). I happen to be a fan of their Omni Fluer Vase, because it serves a practical purpose in addition to looking pretty. Pitch it to your HR clients today. Click here: http://my.glassamerica.com/ . The Bottom Line: Just add flowers.
Puttin’ on the Glitz The Pitch: BCG Creations (asi/37693) has been creating custom ornaments since 1981, which is the year I graduated from Queen of Peace High School. Glitter was big in the ‘80s too (I wore it in my hair on my wedding day. Yes, I did). So, I’m suggesting their line of custom glitter ornaments to add sparkle to any business deal. Give them to your best prospects during the holidays. Check them out here: http://www.bcgcreations.com/. The Bottom Line: Shiny objects.
