Last year, CBC reported that $46 billion dollars worth of goods are returned to retailers every year — and much of that is done during the holiday season. Some retailers have excellent year-round return policies so they don’t need to make special concessions during the holidays. Others try to step up their return game for a short period of time to accommodate gift returns/exchanges or just consumers with buyer’s remorse. It’s a lot of information to sift through, especially if you don’t have time to read the fine print but we’ve done some of the legwork for you. If you know you have a lot of picky people on your list, make note of these retailers with the best and worst holiday (and regular) return policies. Looking for more gift ideas?

It’s the holiday season, which means it’s also hangover season. From holiday parties to egg nog-soaked family dinners and of course, New Year’s Eve, there are so many excuses to indulge. Unlike overeating, the other dreaded holiday vice, drinking too much can make you look exactly how you feel: ill. The main cause is dehydration — when your skin is thirstier than a desert wolf, blood vessels start to constrict, which results in dull, sickly looking skin. If you suffer from a skin condition like rosacea, drinking alcohol can trigger flare-ups as well. At the risk of being a Debbie Downer, long-term heavy drinking can speed up the signs of aging, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Just saying. That being said, alcohol has become a normal part of celebrating and it’s not realistic to abstain at every party. And despite attempts to control ourselves in the midst of an open bar, mistakes will be made. You’ve probably made those mistakes the night before a big job interview or brunch with the family and tried desperately to conceal the evidence. Skin is pretty resilient and will bounce back within 24 hours, but if you need to look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed fast, here are a few beauty tips to hide that hangover. Looking for gift ideas?

To take some of the stress and guess work out of navigating holiday party attire, here’s our loose guide for what to wear to every event this season.
