    5. An illuminated phone case to take some bomb-ass selfies to post to all your social media accounts, letting your ex know you're doing JUST FINE without them.

    Promising Review: "I love this product and ended up purchasing four to gift for Christmas. My phone has fallen and tumbled quite a few times with no damage to either the case or phone. If you consider yourself a selfie queen, this is the best!" —shygirl12

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    6. Babydoll lingerie because you look amazing and you want to treat your damn self! Plus, the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. Or so they say.

    Promising Review: "I love babydoll lingerie, but this is one of the best I have ever purchased. It is soft and looks amazing." —BeeLo

    Get it from Victoria's Secret for $49.50. Sizes: XS-XL. Available in three colors.

    7. A pair of sunnies so you won't have to see the haters (or your ex).

    Promising Review: "I bought these sunglasses because they looked cool in the pictures. They have an expensive feel about them — the sleek, gold-colored frames add that expensive touch and the mirror lens makes them look modern and cool. I also like the second line that goes across the lens, it gives a unique touch that many generic sunglasses tend to have. They also seem durable since mine haven't broken yet, despite being banged up by other objects in my purse. I also like the slightly oversized lens! Additionally, the lens blocks out some of the brightness of the sun, but isn't too dark where your visibility is affected." —Leona

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99 or Jet for $10.99. Available in 13 colors.

    8. A handy sheet mask to get rid of all the stress you have from the arguing and passive aggressive texts you got before the big split. / Via @glamglow

    It contains green teaoxi and a mix of amino acids to cleanse oily skin while brightening your beautiful face!

    Get it from Sephora for $9.

    9. A box of tissues that'll literally help you dry your tears.

    Promising Review: "You can't go wrong with Kleenex. We definitely got far more use out of each Kleenex than we could with two or three of the generic brand. These really are significantly stronger and softer than other brands that we have tried. These boxes hold quite a few tissues and have lasted a long time. The designs on the outside of the boxes are simple but cute and aren't an eyesore to have around the house." —Bobbi

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $5.48.

    Promising Review: "I originally bought this as a gift for my bestie's birthday and instantly fell in love with the colors, so I did what any sane person would do and purchased two. This has been my go-to for over a month now! I love how blendable the formula for these eyeshadows are and how they are very long lasting." —Alicateye

    Get it from Sephora for $36.

    13. A coloring book for when you want to be artistic but mentally say "fuck off I deserve better."

    Promising Review: "I was married for 17 years before becoming single at age 40. Dating has changed a lot since I was 21 and online dating is in a special category of its own. I use this coloring book to keep me sane as I navigate dating in the 21st century. Fun!" —Allykat

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    14. An oversized robe, because you really can't focus on coordinating outfits at the moment so why even try?

    17. A boozy pin to let everyone know what fragile state you're in.

    18. An array of chocolates. Forrest Gump was right — you never know what you're gonna get in life, so why not indulge?

    Promising Review: "Godiva is always delicious. This was a perfect selection of chocolates — just enough variety of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate as well as fillings. They also arrived fresh." —Amazon Customer

    Get the box of 19 chocolates from Amazon for $32.

    19. An inspirational movie for teaching you how to actually deal with being all by yourself, again.

    Promising Review: "It's a really smart comedy, and there are surprisingly complex characters, even though it's surely goofy. In terms of romantic comedy, it's a little more realistic, a little darker, but lovely in the end." —Chris Abraham

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99. Also available on Blu-ray and Amazon Video.

    20. An oversized sweater that will tell every fuckboy in existence they have no chance in hell and back.

    "If it makes you happy!"

    Promising Review: "What a great surprise. It was very inexpensive, yet the quality was excellent. It was solid and compact, with quality buttons and inputs. It was easy to use and for such a small speaker, and surprisingly loud. Its sound was good for such a small speaker. Also, it comes with a large battery that lasts hours!" —Brad

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    23. A no drama flask to pull out when things just become way too much.

    Of course drinking isn't the best way to cope, BUT.

    Get it from Shopbop for $25.

    24. A rose choker necklace because you can buy your own damn flowers! It's called SELF love.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $40.

    25. And an One Direction album. If five hot guys that can sing can't heal your heartache, what can?

    Promising Review: "I bought this for my son! He listens to it so much that I can probably sing all the words at this point. If you're a One Direction fan, then you will love it too." —lilpnkbnny
