Style giveaway: For him, for her

From staff reportsDecember 18, 2013 

As a thank-you to our readers, we’re giving away a couple of stylish last-minute Christmas gifts. (Or if you win, keep it for yourself – we don’t judge!)

For him, we have a snazzy stainless steel wallet from Zippo. The literature says it helps secure against credit card theft (suppresses signals from radio frequency ID chips), that it’s durable, comfortable to carry, easy to use and provides plenty of storage (six credit cards plus cash). We can add that it looks very stylish and distinctive (and it’s a $50 retail value).

For her, we have a nice Philosophy gift set courtesy of Sephora. The Sweets for the Stocking gift box includes Philosophy’s Pink Almond Candy shampoo/shower gel/bubble bath, glazed body souffle and body polishing scrub. These products have no parabens or phthalates. The set retails for $26.

To enter the random drawing, send an email to by midnight Thursday (Dec. 19) and say in the subject field if you’d like to win the gift for HIM or for HER. We’ll notify the winners Friday morning. Good luck!
