Our 5 Favorite Promotional Products of the Week: Dino T-shirts, Imperfect Coffee Cups and More
Well, folks, somehow it's December. Time to buy a new calendar and cue up one of the many songs about December. "Long December" by Counting Crows, "December's Traditions" by Frightened Rabbit, etc.
There are a lot of songs about December, but only one song about working for the weekend. That should probably change.
We're not sure how many songs there are about promotional products. Taylor Swift does mention T-shirts, so that might count. While we scour our record collections, let's look at five promotional products that deserve songs of their own, shall we?
1. '2012' Emergency Kit
OK, it turns out we didn't need this emergency kit for any apocalyptic disaster in 2012. But, it's good to have on hand every year.
2. National Geographic Adult Dinosaurs Shirt
You don't grow out of loving dinosaurs. If you do, we're sad for you. Dinosaurs rule, and we'd gladly rock this shirt well into our twilight years.
3. Nomad Coffee Cup
Brendan just got back from a vacation in Spain, where he tried some coffee from a shop in Barcelona called Nomad. It was one of the best cups of coffee he's ever had, and now he's daydreaming about returning and drinking a Cortado out of this little cup watching the waves of the Mediterranean roll in.
4. Philadelphia Union Reversible Jacket
The Philadelphia Union are in the Eastern Conference Championship game, which is a big ol' deal to the soccer-loving Philadelphians among us. This jacket has such a cool, timeless look. And it's reversible to go with any outfit.
5. 1984 AL East Pennant Countdown
After the 35 and 5 start, the pennant count down and clinching of the 1984 AL East title felt like it was inevitable, as this Miller Lite promotional item shows. Wire to wire champs, and 7 and 1 in the postseason! pic.twitter.com/X2rbo6p2P8

We love the hyped-up spirit and optimism of this calendar. If the Phillies did something like this every time they started off hot, we'd have a ton of unused countdown calendars.
