My 5 Favorite Promos of the Week: Cavaliers Tees, Sézane Totes and More
Is there anything better than seeing a great promotional product in the wild? I guess I might be more excited if Albus Dumbledore showed up at my house with a free pizza and my acceptance letter to Hogwarts, but amazing promotions are a close second.
Here were my top five of the week.
1. Cleveland Cavaliers "The First Cedi" Tees
All #TheFirstCedi tees!
— Cleveland Cavaliers (@cavs) March 19, 2018
In honor of Cavs forward Cedi Osman, the team handed out these tees for a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. It featured a pronunciation of the player's name, as well as a definition. Osman was injured during a game against the Clippers on March 9, so these T-shirts are a clever way to pay respects to a fan favorite.
2. Great Ormond Street Hospital T-shirts
To celebrate 30 years since it launched its children's charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital launched an '80s-themed campaign, which includes a collection of retro tees. The "Then. Now. Always." collection partnered with artists to create 16 different T-shirt designs. Each sells for $28.25 with 100 percent of the profits going to the charity, and they are all amazing.
3. Sézane's Los Angeles Pop-up Tote Bag
Famed Paris apparel brand Sézane opened its Los Angeles pop-up at The Grove this month, and naturally, I just had to go on opening day. Immediately, I spotted the promotional tote bag for the pop-up, and I've been obsessed with it ever since. Thank you, Mom, for taking my photograph! Bonjour, LA!
4. Minor League Baseball "Copa de la Diversion" Baseball Hats

Minor League Baseball launched a new initiative, the "Copa de la Diversion" to celebrate and embrace U.S. Hispanic and Latino communities. The 33 teams are all getting new personas and names to celebrate the season-long event, and we love the limited-edition team hats.
5. Los Angeles Dodgers Hello Kitty Night T-shirt
They say the new "Avengers: Infinity War" movie is the biggest crossover in history, but they clearly haven't seen these promotional T-shirts.
