Uh oh. Should I be worried about the Eagles? I think Paul at D&R Branded Products would say, no, no, no. He has season tickets, so I'm pretty sure he doesn't want to give up yet. It's only September. Let's think positive, starting with this edition, which I'm positive will give you some ideas. Enjoy and send your feedback directly to me at: email@example.com.

Tote-ally Cool The Pitch: When we went to Ocean City, MD this summer, the Realtor gave us a travel cooler tote upon our arrival. I thought this was a great idea! We used it every day to bring our water and whatnot down to the beach and I used it again this past week in Cape May. Plus it will always be a reminder of who to call when we’re looking for a rental in MD again. Sweda Company LLC (asi/90305) has a great new cooler tote that would be perfect for such a promotion. Think of your real-estate clients, travel-related clients and beverage distributors. Item FB0102 starts at:50; $10.99 and you can see it here: http://swedausa.com/.
Also, Sweda is running a case study contest and you can win $5000 for your great submission (due by 9/30, so hurry up!). You can read about that here: http://www.swedausa.com/. The Bottom Line: Carry sales.
Cigar Bar The Pitch: Last night, my 17-year-old told me he’s going to smoke a celebratory cigar when he turns 18 (he likes to get a rise out of me), to which I said, “No! Smoking is bad!” Moms all over would prefer everyone celebrate instead with this chocolate cigar (marbled chocolate) with customizable single-color label, packaged in a plastic tube. It’s fromChocolates a la Carte (asi/44902). This is a fun idea for new dads, anniversaries, wedding favors and any special event. Pricing starts at:100; $4.18. Check it out: http://candymaker.com/. The Bottom Line: No matches necessary.
Cup of Cheer The Pitch: I like this as a gift for your clients (and theirs) who celebrate Christmas. Little Black Dress Promotions (asi/67735) offers an 8-oz. pack of Christmas Coffee, featuring a cozy blend of these three flavors: orange, butter rum and cinnamon. Choose your color bag and use stock art or supply custom art. Drop it off at your clients’ offices during the season, along with donuts and they will know to call you for their next order. Pricing starts at: 48; $11.04. You can see it on ESP or for more information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bottom Line: Something’s brewing.
