The eBabes' Holiday Gift Guide

The holiday season often means one thing to people like the eBabes: Debt. And togetherness and family and stuff like that, but mostly we’re just poor as shit when Christmas rolls around.

The eBabes’ Guide to Winter Coats

The eBabes' Guide to Winter Coats

As the last of our jorts and bikinis are safely put away in storage for the season, it’s time to think about coats. Not only that, it’s time to think about finding the coat no one else has.

Get a Headstart on Halloween with eBay

Get a Headstart on Halloween with eBay

It’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween. In fact, the eBabes knew what we were going to be this Halloween last Halloween (Da Brat and one half of Die Antwoord). We’re also pretty attuned to pop culture (blogging and whatnot), so we think we can predict the three most popular Halloween costumes for 2010: Katy Perry, Heidi Montag, and Sad Keanu.
