The Pitch: I have one of these keychain/bottle openers. It came in handy just the other day when I was tailgating before the Phillies game with fellow editor Joe Haley. Get the Beverage Wrench from Evans (asi/52840) at better than EQP until 9/30/14 It’ll make any party pop. Check it out: http://www.evans-mfg.com/.
The Bottom Line: Open up.
Light It Up
The Pitch: Looking for a technology-related product? If you order the Illuminated Power Bank from Dard Products (asi/48500), they will waive the set-up fee for a one-color/one- location imprint. It powers tablets, phones, cameras, etc. It also works as a phone stand and comes gift-boxed so think of it for holiday promos too. You can check it out and get more info, including pricing here: http://www.tagmaster.net/.
The Bottom Line: Stay connected.
Picnic in the Park
The Pitch: Tonight’s the night! The finale of the newest iteration of “The Bachelorette.” I know, I don’t care at all either. But you know what could make for a romantic date? A lovely summertime picnic. Apollo (asi/73392) has an essential: a 50% acrylic/50% nylon, water-resistant, plaid outdoor blanket. It has solid-color flap decoration and Velcro closures with a handle. Suggest it as a giveaway for wine retailers. You could even add a wine tote for more ch-ching. It’s on summer special pricing at $8.99, embroidered for a minimum 72-piece order. That expires 12/31/14. Click here: http://www.apolloemb.com/.
The Bottom Line: Comfy commission.
The Pitch: Cornhole originated in Cincinnati, but it’s now popular all over the country. I saw people playing it before a concert the other night (James Taylor, not that you asked). Now you can take the tailgating to the office (no beer, of course … or maybe?). Desktop Cornhole sets from PromoToss (asi/30226) are a fun and memorable gift. Four-color-process printing is available to match any supplied graphic, including photos. For pricing and other info, click here: http://www.promotoss.com/.
The Bottom Line: Game-changer.
