There’s nothing like the warm, fuzzy feeling you get when passing out gifts to the ones you love. Except maybe the incredible, thrilling rush that comes from scoring those gifts during the most invigorating shopping season of all!
This year, our friends at T.J.Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods are giving you more reasons than ever to celebrate your holiday shopping victories — by creating a series of fun and inspiring gifting “missions” that you can tackle weekly for a new chance to win!
Readers as well as our favorite lifestyle bloggers will be invited to participate in five missions across T.J.Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods stores, then simply share their experience via Twitter using the hashtag #TheGifter. Each week, one winner will be chosen to receive a $500 gift card! You can also visit #TheGifter holiday gifting hub to explore an ever-evolving gallery of amazing gifts at amazing values — check back often for fresh inspiration and fun ideas.
Make this holiday shopping season your most triumphant yet! The missions are already under way, so start making your gifting list, and click here for more details.

After all, it's the season of giving, so give back to me!

With some of the silkiest fur around, Chinchillas are as sweet as they are soft. Although I've never had one as a pet (GeekSugar did!), I've dug up some fun facts on the cute rodents. Even if you wouldn't name yours Chill, Charlie, or Chi Chi, learn about the creatures anyway when starting this quiz.

Mondays make people sad, and frowns are a leading cause of wrinkles. So before we all reach our golden years way before ever hitting our prime, we think it’s high time to take that sad, droopy Monday and turn it upside down with a Makeover Monday contest.
That’s the fun of it! Take our depressed little day and turn it into the sexy weekday diva it was meant to be by accessorizing it in fun. So visit RefreshYourFun.OnSugar.com and check out the details for your chance to win a Makeover Monday prize pack courtesy of Arbor Mist!
Play my Which Pet Is Cuter? game to bring a smile to your Friday . . . maybe a little work break, too! The game shows two pets side by side, and it's up to you to click on the one you think is the cutest. Each time you select the pet with the higher "cuteness" score – based on our audience's votes, we don't have a secret cute meter – your score adds up! Need I mention, every time you play you're eligible to win big? We'll be giving away a $1,000 grand prize every month — you must be logged in, and you'll be entered once each time you play. (Check out the official rules here.)
If you think your pet has a winning mug, you can add him to the site and he can be added to the game. Keep 'em coming because I love seeing new pets on our site!
