Babe's making her list, and in the spirit of this particular season, she's checking the price twice. But she won't let a Grinch of an economy keep her from giving or receiving fabulous holiday gifts. Here are a few that won't have you raiding your already depleted 401k....Order the aspiring vegan in your life Leaping Bunny's Cruelty-Free Shopping Guide, which is small enough to fit in your pocket and costs nothing. For the resolution-minded, Babe's favorite smart-alecky advocates Rory and Kim will launch their Skinny Bitch Fitness DVDs ($9.95 each) next week. Because every girl likes to be pampered, some nice soaps and gels are always a prime idea. Try Savannah Soap Kitchen's trio of handmade Pumpkin Spice, Iced Gingerbread and Peppermint mini-soaps for just $5, or Cactus & Ivy's body care sampler for $12. Moving up the price scale, Babe is smitten with In the Raw's luxe body washes ($24-$34) in Green Tea and Fig Leaf. They also make great soy wax candles ($26). Beyond the token stocking stuffer, Sparrow's chic Nadia bag, at right, looks upscale but rings in at only $89.
