10 Accessories Under $5 To Beat The Winter Blues

January and February have a bad rep as being the most depressing months of the year. The holidays are over, the lights and decorations are gone to reveal gloomy skies, bare trees, and long nights.

It’s not all bad though. You can always count on (online) retail therapy, and you don’t even have to spend much! Aliexpress has plenty of accessories under $5 to beat the winter blues. Coming home to a treat in the mailbox is always a sure way to lift your mood.
