I’m So Fancy
The Pitch: Here’s a fancy idea for a holiday gift. Prime Line (asi/79530) offers a Leeman New York leather-wrapped stainless-steel tumbler, gift boxed (with bow) with two packets of Ghirardelli hot cocoa. Suggest it for new employee welcome gifts too to make anyone feel at home in their new digs. This would be a great in-room gift for conference attendees as well.

The Bottom Line: Cocoa loco.

A Chill in the Air
The Pitch: I finally had to break down and turn the heat on last night (I hate it!). Which means it’s a perfect time for a Sherpa blanket giveaway. Hit Promotional Products (asi/61125) offers a large, 60-inch by 50-inch super-soft Sherpa blanket for as low as $18.99-C (blank) and $23.99-C (embroidered). This would be a lovely gift for anyone who wants to be warm and cozy, so that means everyone. Check it out here:
The Bottom Line: All covered up.

Snack Attack
The Pitch: We all know Midnite Snax (asi/71685) offers delicious treats to fit all tastes. But did you know they have a limited-time offer running until November 1 on all self-promo orders? Yes, it’s true: Receive 15% off EQP plus half-price set-up charges. Mention promo code TF14F. It’s time to get out your list of loyal clients and hot prospects and set the wheels in motion for your tasty self-promotion campaign. Read more about it here:
The Bottom Line: Act now.

A Little Getaway
The Pitch: Just in time for fall weekend getaways, Vitronic Promotional Group (asi/93990) introduces its Canvas Collection (tan with brown accents) featuring a weekender bag, a duffel bag, utility bag and more. Prices vary by bag of course, but you can check out the weekender bag, which would be a nice addition to any travel-related promo, here:
The Bottom Line: Get packing.
