Ahead, we highlight six of these specific scenarios, along with inspired products to buy. Follow this guide, and you’ll never ask yourself, “Do I really need this now?” again. And, if you accidentally break the shopping code at some point this season, we won’t judge. Sometimes, that afternoon pick-me-up on a bad day is necessary.
