Umbrella: T-6 days

I'm getting spammed by Umbrella exhibitors. I've had umpteen (OK, four or five) emails and a letter, telling me about products and services I might be interested in learning more about. The emails aren't so bad, but the letter is a complete waste of trees. Not that I'm a hippy or anything.

All they really need to do is provide quality schwag and I'll be happy to talk to them. I'm on the lookout for three promotional mousemats: our all-new reference area (called In Depth) has three mousematless PCs. I'd prefer something that advertises products we subscribe to and which I like (I'm looking at you, OUP!), but essentially I'm not fussy.

What's on your freebie-shopping list?
