Chances are you're doing your best to penny pinch this holiday season, and why not? With the economy still fragile at best, Scrooge is the new savvy.

So it can be a little bit of a bummer when, as you smugly eye the pile of presents you've amassed by sale-stomping and bargain-chasing, you remember: those darn things hung by the chimney with care still have to be filled.
