Have you heard the news? You may not have an other half, but you're certainly not alone: singles make up more than 50 percent of the U.S. population. Celebrate by hogging all of the bed covers, not sharing your dessert with anyone, and wearing the I Complete Me Tee ($47).

Forget meticulously curated mantels - when it comes to Christmas, we'd much rather decorate with the gaudy trinkets we've loved since childhood than whatever is trendy at Pottery Barn. The same goes for our nails - the more kitsch, the better! Thanks to these decals ($10), we can rock colorful candy canes, ornaments, and lights on our nails the entire month of December.

Second only to sipping a festive hot toddy is shoveling handful after handful of this Hot Toddy Caramel Corn ($8) from Butter & Scotch into your mouth. We haven't decided yet if munching hot toddy-flavored popcorn while also drinking a hot toddy is overkill, but we're pretty sure we'll have to try it at least once.

Actually, the pizza is going to be inserted into our mouths, but while it's on the plate (for a few seconds at a time), we'll take great delight in placing it within the designated triangle.

Adding glitter to your eyelids is a great way to bump up the festive factor at upcoming holiday parties... until it drifts down to your cheeks, chin, and dress, making you look sloppy. Keep your sparkle in place with Lime Crime's Glitter Helper ($20). Just dab onto your skin with your finger, apply your glitter, and party on without having to run to the bathroom for a makeup check every half hour.

You invest a ton of money into a tablecloth for the holidays and it never fails - Cousin Tom always spills a glass of red wine and Dad can't seem to eat his cranberry sauce without dropping half of it back onto the table. Get smart this year and use a portion of this paper runner ($32) to protect your table. It's still got a lovely design and classy look, but when the feast is over you can crinkle it up and throw it away - no harm done!

Need a way to turn a plain dress into something ready for the holiday season? Simply add a cape - specifically, this Embellished Cape ($49) from the Miss Selfridge Premium Collection. We wish adding a cape was always the way to solve a fashion problem - maybe it is!

Please tell us that we weren't the only ones who adored our Underoos when we were kids. They gave kids super powers and the fortitude to tackle the monkey bars at the park. Now, all these years later, Underoos are back... and they come in adult sizes. We know that Fruit of the Loom is just cashing in on Millennial nostalgia, but don't let it prevent you from rocking a Batgirl Underwear Set ($25). We doubt you'll be swinging across the playground in them, but we're pretty sure superhero undies will make you feel pretty confident as you climb the corporate ladder.

If it were up to us, babies wouldn't get holiday gifts - what are they gonna remember of it anyway? But we can't get away with that without our sister-in-law giving us dirty looks around the Christmas tree, so here goes.

You always start your holiday baking with a smile on your face and a list of goodies three miles long, but when you're in the trenches waiting for your sugar cookies to cool and your frosting to harden, you curse yourself for tackling too much. Cut a few corners and opt for a store-bought dough, or skip crushing up candy canes in favor of shaking a bunch of Peppermint Crunch Sprinkles ($10) onto your peppermint bark and gingerbread people. When friends and family are gobbling up your goodies, they won't even notice the substitutes!

Hurrah! You managed to find yourself an excellent parking spot at work three days in a row. The victory doesn't merit a party, per se, but it certainly could use a handful of glitter confetti ($8) and possibly a slice of cake from the bakery down the street. Walk, though, because moving your car may break your good luck streak!

Designed to be a daily cleansing product, this Egg Pore Deep Cleansing Foam ($16) is only sorta foam-y, but it does expand on your face with a little water and soft rubbing. After a few uses, you should notice that it contracts your pores so that dirt and oils can't get in and wreck havoc by turning into little blackheads, or worse, whiteheads.
