Santa Baby

Santa baby, slip a surprise under the tree for me, I’ve been an awfully good girl, Santa baby, hurry down the chimney tonight! Everyone from Marilyn Monroe to the Pussycat Dolls has crooned this song out to Santa at some point, hoping for a Christmas gift that’s truly decadent and alluring. Now it’s our turn! We’ve been awfully good this year, and after a few months of credit crunch mandated window-shopping, we’re fully clued in on all of the potential presents out there and ready to write the most compelling x-mas letters the North Pole has seen in years. Santa won’t be able to resist!

Santa baby, there’s something I really need…
