With record holiday shopping this year, there's also expected to be a lot of shoplifting. And Ad Week has a list of the most shoplifted items. Chanel Number 5 perfume is on there -- as well as Axe body spray. I guess thieves like to smell good? They also apparently like the Let's Rock Elmo toy. But the most stolen item on the list is stolen from the grocery store: choice cuts of steak.
