It's the most wonderful time of the year!

WTF Do I Get Everybody Else? [Gift Guide]

Whether you know it or not it takes/took a village to raise your ungrateful tush.

Holiday Present Nostalgia [GALLERY]

Before the days of Four Loko prohibition, staying up all night to write a 19-page term paper on Harry Potter symbolism, and Sunday morning hangovers, there were days of innocence and Gap outfits and toy commercials that made you drool all over your yourself.

So, What Did Ya Get?

Not being a Christmas celebrater myself, it took me quite a few years to get used to getting phone calls at 8am on December 26th, my friends screaming about True Religions, the Gilmore Girls DVD box-set, and "OMG MY MOM GOT ME THREE HANDLES OF SMIRNOFF!!!" on the other end.

Sexy Time: Last Minute Gifts Get Sexy

If you're one of those slackers who leaves your Christmas shopping until Christmas Eve (much to the scorn of retail workers everywhere) there’s no need to fret. Sex can be a great gift to anyone on your list this year. Yeah, that’s right, I said anyone. Now before you start calling me perverted, let me show you what I mean.

What Do You Want Most This Year? [POLL]

As much as we all know we should be giving back this season, with all the goodness that's out there it's impossible not to want. The problem is, what do I want most? I know I can't get it all (no matter how much they love me, I know my parents won't be getting me a BMW this year) so I gotta choose the top dogs for my holiday list.

Add A Little Green to Your Holiday

The holiday season is many things, but eco-friendly is not one of them. (Did you know that we could power 600,000 houses for a year with the amount of electricity wasted on holiday lights?!) When you take into account all of the presents we buy, miles we travel, and food we stuff in our mouths, you can’t help but notice how quickly it all seems to add up.

The Weekly Ten: Holiday Happiness

Thanksgiving. Sigh. After being more stuffed than the holiday turkey, it's time to come to terms with the fact that the holiday season has begun.

Lusting for Lush Cosmetics

The first time I heard about Lush cosmetics I blew it off as an expensive Bath and Body Works. Little did I know, I would become a fanatical Lush fan. Earlier this summer, for a “just because I love you” present, my boyfriend sent me a huge package of Lush products. (He's cute, I know.) And now I've found something I love more than him: anything and everything Lush.
