    ANYONE left on your Christmas list just aching for a 65-inch Samsung 3D flat-screen television? Just your luck.

    The Vatican's duty-free department store has one on sale for 2,899 euros ($3,677) - a nifty savings over the 3,799 euros ($4,818) it costs at Italy's main electronics chain Euronics.

    Or how about some new luggage for the holidays? The Vatican shop stocks a variety of Samsonite Cordoba Duo carry-ons for 123 euros, a nice markdown from the 135 euros on the Samsonite website.
    But if a last-minute shopping splurge is in order, the Vatican can also oblige: A leather-bound travelling trunk from Florence's "The Bridge" leatherworks, with five drawers, plaid interior, six wooden hangars and shiny brass buckles is 5,900 euros and comes with a matching leather golf club bag - just what every monsignor needs under his Christmas tree.
