Gloomy Moods Begone: Fun Little Gifts Under $50

If the shorter days and colder weather's got you feeling bum-bums, we'd like to advocate a little retail therapy to put that pep back in your step. True, it might not be the holidays anymore, but that's all the more reason to treat yourself to a little gift, especially if the price-tag is manageable. We've found a few petite prezzies that are like instant mood lifters, guaranteed to eke out a smile as you wear it, use it, or play with it during the winter doldrums. From a new candle to burn on your nightstand to a liquor that tastes like root beer, these are beautiful little things that'll get you through the months.
