Avon‘s holiday campaign “Shop Early, Shop Easy, Shop Avon” pretty much sums up why we’re big fans of the cosmetic, skin care, and fashion giant. Not only can you get everything you need for the holidays, like the 3-Piece Enchanted Holiday Nailwear Collection or a Wear Your Way Convertible Dress (above), but you can also shop from the comfort of your home while watching your favorite holiday movies. Avon definitely has gifts that are fun to receive and keep for yourself, so there shouldn’t be anything stopping you from browsing. [Avon.com]
WIN THIS! We’re offering one lucky reader the chance to fulfill her Avon holiday wish list. One winner will be allowed to choose up to 10 Avon products (total value not to exceed $100) to treat herself or her loved ones. But you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us how you treat yourself during the holidays by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 16, 2010. Your treat can be anything from a relaxing bath to a piece of jewelry.

As the holidays approach, we all start thinking about that favorite moment spent with friends and family, the meal you’re most looking forward to eating, the gifts you are most looking forward to giving (and let’s be honest, receiving), and the traditions that come along with all of it. This year, we want to be a part of your favorite family moment and would love a sneak peek via Flickr or YouTube. Show us how you celebrate the holidays with your family and friends — whether it’s a video of all the cooks in the kitchen, opening holiday gifts, or playing in the snow. And you could win a $1,000 gift giving shopping spree on Nautica.com for your efforts.

We heard bits and pieces of Sterling’s Gold: Wit and Wisdom of an Ad Man by Roger Sterling, Jr. on the last season of “Mad Men.” We didn’t think we’d be able to read Roger’s book, especially since he couldn’t get any publishers to bite. But he’s quite the character and is known for his quips and quick-wit barbs, so we think Sterling’s Gold would provide insight into the ad world and business, in general, as well as a look into upper middle-class life in New York during the 1950s and 1960s. [$10.99, Amazon.com]
WIN THIS! We’re giving away two copies of Sterling’s Gold: Wit and Wisdom of an Ad Man by Roger Sterling, Jr., but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us which is your favorite quip from Roger and why. Enter by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2010. We’ll pick our favorite responses and announce the winners Wednesday, Nov. 24. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!
