Since I've already mentioned a gift with purchase, I have to mention this great one I just got in my personal e-mail.
Spend $35 on Lancome over at Bloomingdale's and you can personalize your gift with purchase. You get your choice of 7 items from a list of 14. I recommend the eye makeup remover for sure. Then from there decide if you want more skin care or makeup. It's your own fault if you end up with a lipstick you'll never wear.

Since its inception in 2003, the Avon Foundation for Women's Walks have raised more than $320 million through the dedication of nearly 120,000 participants, including women and men ranging in age from their teens to those in their 80s, from every walk of life. Last year alone, nearly 21,000 participants helped raised more than $52 million from hundreds of thousands of donors. Each walker is required to raise at least $1,800 in donations and prepare physically for the event. In 2009, walkers came from 46 states and 4 countries to make a change. This large, diverse group is united by their shared desire to eradicate breast cancer and help those touched by the disease.
