Christmas time is always a special season filled with an overwhelming air of goodness. Yet we have to admit- It’s also the time of the year where some of us feel slightly lonelier than usual. If you’ve just gotten over a breakup, made a big move, or are reconsidering various facets of your life, Christmas can be quite sobering. In times like these, we love to call on the powers of retail therapy. When was the last time you bought yourself a present?
