    1. An autumn glass votive candle that smells as good as it looks. Whether you choose the Sweater Weather, Fall Feels, Fireside Chats or Weekend Getaway scent, you're bound to get compliments on it anytime someone walks in your home and catches sight of it — or a whiff.

    The Anecdote candles

    Promising review: "Fabulous. It always feels like a bit of a risk to buy a candle online, but you really can’t go wrong with this one. The smell is so lovely." –ARicc

    Price: $32 (available in four scents)

    Love these scents and want to give them as a gift? Anthro has a pretty — and deliciously-scented — Anecdote gift box with six candles that's basically the perfect present.

    2. A dyed faux fur throw blanket to ensure that you and your guests are as cozy as possible the next time you all snuggle up on your couch. The faux fur blanket measures 70 inches by 50 inches, so it's roomy enough to share, too.

    Promising review: "I want to be swaddled in this blanket. It’s heavenly!! I definitely recommend purchasing." –Kunzbn

    Price: $128 (available in six colors)

    3. A George & Viv light-up holiday village that's even cuter in person. Just keep in mind that these adorable holiday-themed houses are made with thick paper, so they'll require special storage outside of the holiday season.


    Promising review: "These sold out around Halloween and I had to stalk the site for reloads. So happy I was able to purchase all four. It was well worth the effort and will be something we treasure for many years to come. They are beautiful pieces of art. I hope there are future releases.." –AbbyLovesCoffee

    Price: $38 (available in five options)

    4. A textured velvet quilt for those who love the idea of seasonal bedding. The slightly thicker-than-average quilt is perfect for fall and winter, though you might love it so much (and wholeheartedly enjoy all the compliments you receive for it) that you'll want to use it all year long.

    The rust-colored velvet quilt

    Promising review: "Worth every penny. This quilt and pillow covers look very luxurious in our bedroom and is incredibly comfortable. I also like that it does look good with either side up if you need a change. Perfect for fall/winter. Absolutely recommend." –JessAT

    Price: $228+ (available in five sizes and seven colors)

    5. A French bistro-inspired tile monogram dessert plate that may very well be even more compliment-worthy than the dessert you serve on it. The fan-favorite plate is sold in every letter of the alphabet, so you can match them to you initials, spell out your BFF's name — the possibilities are limitless.

    The tile alphabet dessert plates

    Promising review: "The plate is well made sturdy and quite elegant. It is a nice addition to my bistro collection." –AnthroJ3N

    Price: $16 (available in 26 options)

    (Psst: They have matching mugs, too!)

    6. A drapey puff-sleeved velvet button-down to become the toast of your next fall shindig or upcoming holiday party. It pairs great with flared leg jeans or a short, flowy skirt — heck, thanks to its slightly longer length, you can even wear it with your favorite pair of leggings. However you wear it, the relaxed, balloon-sleeve silhouette is bound to turn heads.

    The red velvet blouse

    Promising review: "Beautiful gray color. Runs a tad small, bought x-small first and exchanged it for a small, mainly for sleeve length. The fabric is exactly the same as the two velvet shirts I got from Anthro two years ago, and they still look great. And, yes the care label does say Urban Oufitters, probably because they are the parent company of Anthropologie." –daggyrose01

    Price: $130 (available in sizes XXS-3X and in petite, and four colors)

    7. A pumpkin chai three-wick candle that smells nothing short of divine — and since it has a 100-hour burn time, you'll get to smell it for a long, long time.

    The Nest Fragrances Pumpkin Chai Candle

    Promising review: "Just lit for the first time an hour ago…amazing scent, burns well and it’s beautifully lit. A wonderful fall scent. I will be purchasing again.." –TammyM

    Price: $70

    8. An agate coaster to protect your tables and counters, and earn you a whole bunch of compliments in the process. Take it from someone who owns one in every color, they're a stunning style statement.

    The gold-rimmed agate coaster

    Promising review: "Such a beautiful coaster! Wanted some rock to offset the wood at my cabin and they look gorgeous! Big enough to hold a glass and condensation, my kids liked being able to choose the color for their bedside tables! Would be a great gift.." –ValerieLove

    Price: $16 (available in six colors)

    FYI: For all you charcuterie lovers, there's an agate cheeseboard, too!

    9. A vintage-inspired mirror for the best mirror selfie you could possibly take. This faux antique accent will pull together any room — honestly, it might be all the decor you need.

    The lineup of different sizes of the Gleaming Primrose Mirror

    Promising review: "This stunning mirror is absolutely beautiful. I made the mistake of originally ordering the smaller size and realized the space needed the 7-foot Primrose. Highly recommend this important addition to elevate your space." –Barb65

    Price: $548+ (available in four sizes and four finishes)

    10. An arched-silhouette wooden cabinet made with tempered glass and marble-topped drawers, so you can store extra glassware and dishes, or show off your favorite books and knick-knacks in high style.

    The arched cabinet

    Psst: There's a bar cabinet version, too!

    Promising review: "Just Beautiful! Very versatile for whatever your taste. I ordered the steel blue. It comes off as a grayish or a blue/gray depending on how the light hits it. I love that you can see the wood grain and slight hints through the paint/stain. Will probably be ordering another color for my sunroom." –relaxingcatmomma

    Price: $2,498 (available in three colors)

    11. A 100% cotton jersey tufted ruffled quilt that will easily and instantly dress up your bedroom.

    The red ruffle quilt

    The quilt comes by itself, so you'll have to buy the shams separately.

    Promising review: "I needed a new quilt and fell in love with this one in berry! Truly, I think all of the colors are very pretty and I could've been happy with any of them. The color is as pictured online. To get the look seen in the pictures where the quilt reaches the ground, I recommend buying one size larger than your bed. I have a queen bed and purchased the queen size quilt because I did not want my quilt touching the ground (it does not). While the material is thin and somewhat delicate, the quilt is heavy and warm." –LNOP

    Price: $288+ (available in four sizes and nine colors)

    12. A roll of House of Hackney floral print wallpaper to completely transform the walls in your home. This vintage-inspired wallpaper is the real deal, not peel-and-stick, so it should last for a very long time.

    The opulent floral wallpaper

    Promising review: "We are so happy with our House of Hackney wallpaper. It’s perfect for our 220-year-old home with grand millennial vibes. We bought the ivory. Only one roll since we had a small area to cover. But I imagine if you needed to cover a big area, you’d need to buy many rolls." –BeckyBell127

    Price: $298 for 53.13 square feet of wallpaper (available in five colors, as well as $4 swatches)

    13. A Scrabble for Anthropologie game that will be the talk of game night. It's just like the classic game. It comes with the rotating board, raised letter grid, wood tile racks, letter tiles, a fabric pouch to hold them, a score pad, pencil, and sand timer—only a whole lot prettier. (FYI, they also have a stunning Monopoly board!)

    The exclusive Anthro Scrabble Board

    Price: $138

    14. An utterly eye-catching tulle blouse to dress up your plain black jeans. The drapey, V-neck, balloon-sleeve blouse has a fitted, ruched waist and ruffle hem for even more flair.

    The burgundy tulle blouse

    Promising review: "Anthro outdid themselves on this one! This top is gorgeous and high-quality. The whole top is so unique, comfortable, and well made. I found it to be true to size. I can’t wait for the holidays to wear this!." –DorisMarilyn

    Price: $90 (available in sizes XS–3X and in petite)

    15. A stunning velvet bar cabinet that will become the instant focal point of any holiday gathering (yes, even more so than your famous Quadruple Chocolate Brownies — sorry). The cabinet opens up to reveal three shelves and wire wine racks fastened to the top interior. It's nothing short of a head-turner.


    Promising review: "This piece has heirloom-type quality. It's a gorgeous piece with a unique design. I feel this item will be in my family for generations to come. A piece that my future daughter will desire to inherit, that’s if she has the same amazing taste as her mother. Beautiful craftsmanship!!!."Ddesigns

    Price: $1,998 (available in two colors)

    (Obsessed with the look? You'll be glad to know that the ridged velvet is also sold in a buffet and table lamp, both of which are available in multiple colors.)

    16. A cult favorite Capri Blue iridescent jar candle so you can fill your home with an incredible scent — and then when it burns out, you'll have a gorgeous jar to repurpose for something else.

    Price: $24 (originally $34)

    17. A monogram pendant necklace that you can wear to honor someone you love (and yes, that someone you love can be yourself). Despite its larger size, this brass necklace is super lightweight.

    The brass initial necklace

    Promising review: "Absolutely love my 'H' necklace. I’ve wore it 98% of the time for the last nine months and it still looks perfect. This necklace is definitely worth the price. Highly recommend!" –HFNW

    Price: $38 (available in 26 options)

    18. A hand-shaped serving platter so you can serve snacks in style. Or, if you're like me, you can use it to hold your jewelry (because, FYI, it's just over 8 inches wide)!

    The hand-shaped serving platter

    Promising review: "I am in love with this. It’s beautiful to just sit out as decor but also when used as a serving dish." –RoxyPie

    Price: $48

    19. A set of four tinted coupe glasses that will dress up your bar cart or cabinet. The lightly tinted, gold-rimmed, vintage-inspired glasses have an ethereal quality that makes them dreamy as can be to drink from, or just look at.

    The blue-tinted glasses

    Promising review: "I ordered both honey and pink. I love them. They are big and one glass holds two smaller glasses of champagne. It’s awesome!!" –DMitri

    Price: $64 for four (available in three colors)

    Want to create a matching bar set? The colorful barware is available in wine glasses (both stemmed and stemless silhouettes), champagne flutes, and even a carafe.

    20. A sheer lace mock neck top that's obviously going to earn you OOTD compliments—I mean, just look at it! The sheer stretchy shirt doesn't have a liner, so just keep that in mind when purchasing.

    The cream-colored lace blouse

    Promising review: "I grabbed this at my local Anthro store before I saw it online. The green top is even prettier in person — a little more vibrant. The sleeves are fuller than they look in pics, more like the pics of the ivory version. I will add a black longline bralette or cami underneath." –Tricialb

    Price: $90 (available in sizes XXS–3X and petite and two colors)
