FIND A PLAICE FOR THIS

"The mouse is dead - long live the fish" is a trademarked phrase for Z List's newest product: a computer mouse in the shape of a fish. The Fish is compatible with Macs and PCs, and does the job of the conventional mouse.

For those of you who are still confused, the difference is that the Fish is a handheld device, controlled by touch. It does not require a flat surface and is not affected by external movement, making it an ideal premium for those working on the move - if you're the type who enjoys working while you're commuting to the office.

Supplier: Z List

Price: £19.99 + VAT

MAGNETIC ALLURE

Leading Edge's dry-peel fridge magnets are simple and effective as on-pack gifts. They were initially launched in Sainsbury's, with tempting photos and serving suggestions on a selection of its veg. Now you too could lure customers to pick your product off the shelf.

Because the magnets are easily attached to the outside of packaging, there are no hidden costs of insertion or flow wrapping and no food safety issues. They are versatile in shape, size and design, can carry any message and, if you fancy a fridge magnet frenzy, they are perfect as collectables as well.

Supplier: Leading Edge

Price: from 5p

Minimum order: 100,000 (recommended cost-effective volume)

Lead time: two to three weeks

GEL THAT PACKS A BIG PUNCH

If you're looking for some custom-designed packaging for your promotional goods or you want some gel-filled goodies in their own right, The Complete Product Company produces gel packs in a variety of shapes and sizes, with different coloured liquids and floating inserts.

From humble beginnings in the CD world, this highly brandable concept has oozed into the realms of business cards, document binders, mouse mats, keyboard handrests and hand-warmers. Apparently people just love to pick them up, squeeze them and revel in their gel-iciousness.

Supplier: The Complete Product Company

Price: from 30p for the basic products such as business cards; up to

£2 for more specialist items/inserts.

Minimum order: 500 for the lower cost items

Lead time: three weeks

WATCH THIS SPACE

If you think it's about time your company offered a premium that will give your recipients a run for their money, maybe you should look into the latest sports watch from Oldeani.

This is a watch that can well and truly chime with your company clout. Don't waste a second.
