GIFTED: Brave the Tysons traffic this Saturday for the Hope for the Holidays event at Saks Fifth Avenue. The Washington Men's Camerata will be trilling out the carols, and a canned food drive will benefit Food & Friends. Bring in donation of quick canned meals such as chili, stews, ravioli or tuna between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., and Saks will give you 15 percent off your purchase that day -- and Food & Friends will get five percent of the proceeds. Splurge on a bauble for a BFF; we suggest a set of seven bangles by Alex and Ani ($198), an array of textured metal and turquoise and white crystal beads. Or send her on an (affordable) trip through fashion history with the 80-page "Diane Von Furstenberg: The Wrap" ($18.95), about DvF's iconic wrap dresses. GET IT: Saks Fifth Avenue, Tysons Corner, McLean, Va.
