One of my favorite holiday traditions is the Christmas stocking. The imaginative days of Santa filling it may be long gone, but it's still one of the most personal gifts to receive. The perfect example of smaller being better, it happens to be the ideal gift for a bargainista. Remember all those samples you've been collecting all year? Hello, stocking stuffers!
Here's one to grab while out shopping this weekend: A free sample of Island Escape 2 oz. body lotion from Bath & Body Works, valued at $3.50. Choose from Bali Mango, Hawaii Coconut, or Fiji Passionfruit, in stores December 17-19. Or, order your sample online with code FBF103604, but you will have to pay for shipping.
Need more to fill the sack? Grab a sample of Hand Relief at Aveda, a free Too Faced mascara sample at Sephora inside JC Penney, and a free Beautiful Eyes Kit for your birthday at Sephora (say you forgot your ID or didn't get one on your birthday). Stuff away!
