    1. Scaredy cats that'll make for some very cute Halloween decorations *and* deter critters like real cats, rodents, birds, rabbits, squirrels, and other pests.

    black cat style yard decorations

    Promising review: "If you don't mind having fake cats all over your yard or garden, these are great. Had some birds eating our strawberries. Put one of these right behind the strawberries in the raised garden bed, and hung one from a porch light. The porch light one looks like the cat is flying, but the wind makes it move a bit and the birds are none-the-wiser. Haven't seen a bird near the garden in a month. Worked well for me." —Tiki

    Get them from Amazon for $19.98.

    2. A waffle-knit top you can wear off the shoulder or tucked into your bottoms for when there's a chill but you don't wanna pull on a sweater just yet. Plus, it's thin enough to fit under your snugger outerwear (looking @ you, leather moto jacket).,

    Promising review: "As expected. Waffle material, loose fit, fits as expected. Can be worn on or off shoulder. Long to cover bottom when wearing with leggings. Great shirt, I already ordered more colors!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and eight colors).

    3. And a Hallowqueen-worthy pullover to help you slide into the spooky szn because, despite what my friend Christina thinks, we are IN IT.

    Murder Apparel

    Don't even say it's too early. It's not! I own this sweatshirt (along with another sweatshirt from the brand). They wash well and are SO comfy.

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (sizes S–2XL) or Murder Apparel for $39.99 (sizes S–4XL).

    4. A drill brush cleaning kit you can attach to your drill/driver for an informercial-like cleaning sesh because maybe you're like me and have started using your oven again now that it's not 100 degrees outside but the crud inside is making it smoke up your kitchen. No? Just me?

    Includes three brushes that'll attach to a standard handheld drill.

    Promising review: "I’m in love with this. I manage many apartment properties and finding people to do the cleaning has been tricky business, so I end up having to get in and clean these horrendous filth pods tenants lived in and left me to deal with when they move out. The ovens and stove tops are usually the worst, and I absolutely hate cleaning. I came across this drill attachment set, and let me tell you, it helped me tremendously! I still had to get in with a putty knife on some of them but it really cut down my elbow-grease time. If it wasn’t for this drill attachment, I think my arms would have just fallen off trying to clean it as good as I did! My only con would be that it doesn’t have any extension of any sort, so I really had my drill all up in that oven, but well worth it." —alicia haats

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in five color combos).

    5. And a pack of oven liners as a preventative measure to catch, cheese, grease, and anything else that'll turn your oven into a smoky situation.

    Promising review: "I HATED cleaning my oven because it was a such a pain. When the food that was stuck to the bottom would start to burn, then I would force myself to clean it. I would watch my husband cook pizza directly on the rack with NOTHING underneath and it would drive me bonkers knowing that I would have to clean the oven soon. Not anymore! These liners keep the bottom of my oven totally clean. And if something does drop, clean up is so easy! I've used another one in my toaster oven with the same results. So glad I was introduced to these oven liners. They really are life-changing!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $13.99.

    6. A corduroy pinafore dress that'll let you wear your cutest fall shirts without putting your stems in leg prisons. I owned two similar ones back in fourth grade and have yearned to find dupes in adulthood. Welp, I found 'em!

    model wearing a brown corduroy pinafore dress over a black T-shirt

    Get it from Target for $28 (sizes XS–XXL, 1X and also in pink).

    7. Slip-proof slippers so you can avoid turning up the heat *too* much (bc $!) and scoot around inside on your hardwood floors without pulling a Risky Business. Remember when you slipped in the kitchen last fall? Yep.,

    FYI, reviewers say it's a good idea to size up.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these slippers. SO comfortable with the memory foam and warm. Love the thick rubber sole on the bottom, so there is no way you would slip. I bought these to bring to the hospital when I give birth, but I am wearing these all the time. My only complaint is that I wear a size 10 shoe. After reading some reviews that these run slightly small (I wear these with and without socks), I opted for the 11.5 size and so glad I did. They fit me perfectly. So, I would definitely size up!" —emily

    Get them from Amazon for $21.99 (available in women's sizes 5/6–11/12 and five colors).

    8. A boot tray to contain the mess from your family's footwear after trudging through seasonal corn mazes or just raking the leaves in the yard.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.56.

    9. And a ~washable~ door mat in fall colors you can park inside before you get to the boot tray so your fam can wipe off their dirty shoes before storing them. And it just looks so nice!

    gray, yellow, and black abstract mat at door

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two colors and five sizes).

    10. A pair of faux leather leggings because these'll keep you toasty without feeling like hard pants. Throw on a sweater and you're set!,

    Some reviewers recommend sizing up for a more comfortable fit.

    Promising review: "It seriously doesn't get better than this pair of faux leather leggings! I searched high and low for the perfect high waist legging with back pockets and this hit every mark! The waist band hits right at my waist and the pocket details give it added detail! I can't rave enough about these!" —Gabriela

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes XS–4XL and in six styles).

    11. A door draft stopper the least handy person in the world could handle installing to prevent cold gusts from coming indoors. Don't make your heating system work harder than it has to! Bc $$$!

    Promising review: "So easy to set up! All you do is peel tape and adhere to a CLEAN and DRY door. Also looks great, I don't even notice it. I had a huge gap under my door. I could smell and hear everything from the hallway. Smells, drafts, and sound all are less of an issue now." —Brit B.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors).

    12. And a roll of thick foam tape weatherstripping even YOU can handle installing on doors where you can normally feel the fall gusts creeping in. No more!

    Promising review: "I just noticed a cold draft coming in from the door between my porch and kitchen. Ordered the 1/2-inch wide, 1/8-inch thick, 50-ft (perfect fit). Super easy, works and looks great! The door is a little more snug to close and needs an extra push, but that's the way it's supposed to be. I have extra weatherstripping for future door projects if needed." —KG in CT

    Get it from Amazon for $11.47+ (available in 14 sizes/lengths).

    13. A Jason Voorhees T-shirt that'll throw in a lil' color to your all-back wardrobe.

    Jad Is Rad

    Get it from Jad Is Rad for $33 (available in unisex sizes S–3XL).

    14. And if you know who Jason Voorhees is, Shudder will also probably pique your interest with its STACKED lineup of horror, sci-fi, thrillers, and more.

    Say it with me: Horror on Netflix sucks! After much hemming and hawing about "Do I need another streaming service?!" I finally got it. Now I'm hooked! I'm a huge horror fan and seek it out year-round. So, TBH, I'm shocked I waited this long! It has lots of exclusive movies (like Color Out of Space with Nic Cage Shudder original ) and TV shows (like Channel Zero, which you've likely heard about), along with stuff you need in your life, such as the 1980 horror classic The Changeling (which is very good, I just watched it for the first time!) and Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer (truly disturbing, I can't get it out of my head). Anyway, if this at all sounds appealing, you should definitely sign up for it!

    Sign up for $4.75+/month here.

    15. Over-the-knee boots for when you'd rather not wear tights *just yet* but can't walk out of the house with bare legs and a skirt.,

    Readers suggest ordering a size up for a perfect fit on your thighs.

    Get them from Amazon for $31.99+ (sizes 5–11 and 15 varieties).

    If you prefer flats, check out these dupes for $38.99+ (sizes 5–12 and 6 varieties). Or if you're looking for an investment, get the ~original~ Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots for $328.08+ (sizes 4–12 and 14 colors).

    16. A mosquito-repelling lantern to make a 15-foot zone that of mosquito-free air. Plus it'll look like a regular old (but stylish!) lantern.

    The black lantern

    Promising review: "Mosquitoes and I are best friends. I'll light six torches, a citronella candle and spray DEET on me and I'll still get bit. I write this review after a fresh rain on my deck next to thick grass in shorts and a T-shirt and say with confidence: this! Buy it!" —Travis Fleming

    Get it from Amazon for $34.80.

    17. Solar lights you can stake along your walkway because even though the sun is setting earlier (NOOOOO!!!!!), you still need to be able to *safely* navigate your driveway and walkway while carrying groceries.,

    Promising review: "Impressed with the size of the cell which provides a larger surface area for charging. The lights are the brightest I've seen for a solar light and the illumination covers a nice range. Placed them along my pond giving the place a classy look." —Percussionist

    Get six from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in black or stainless steel).

    18. A pair of leaf scoops for snatching up the colorful leaves in your yard. Maybe you can even lure the kids into doing the work. Just tell 'em they're Hulk hands.

    Model holding the scoops and transferring a large handful of leaves into a trash can

    Promising review: "We have a very large wooded property that requires a lot of leaves and sticks to be raked up. We have tried various brands of leaf scoops but most lasted not even one season. Since purchasing the ReLeaf Leaf Scoops are job has been much easier. First of all is the way your hands grasp the scoops. These are much more ergonomic and are actually like extensions of your own hands. Second, these are very sturdy and do not bend when trying to pick up a pile of sticks and debris. We have made it through the season so far without issue. Next will be the dreaded fall cleanup. I highly recommend the ReLeaf Leaf Scoops which make our yard, woods and garden cleanup easier." —trouble54

    Get a pair from Amazon for $32.95.

    19. A stylish floppy hat that'll keep the sun off your face while you're exploring corn mazes and making the most of nice fall weather.,

    Promising Review: "This hat is amazing. I purposefully bought it to use in both hot and colder sunny weather in San Francisco. The material is great. It IS 100% wool, and, during hot weather, it feels comfortable. It will look appropriate and good in the fall (and California winter!). It does fold! I shoved it into my backpack a few times, and it bounced back well. Great purchase. And tan color is classic and beautiful. The size can be adjusted with the inside cinch, which make the hat fit a smaller head if needed." —Lera K

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in 16 colors).

    20. A hand-poured candle with a gourd-geous smile for anyone who's looking to branch out a bit from the orange/brown/black seasonal color scheme.

    You, Me & Bones

    Get it from You, Me & Bones for $22.

    21. A lightweight water-resistant down coat as a topper against the fall chill that'll pack down to fit in a small bag. Affordable, available in eight colors, and easy to transport? Sign me up!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I loveeeeeee. Super lightweight and warm!! Worth the purchase, and I love that you can fold it up into a small pouch for easier travel. This jacket is a little long as well but Amazon sells a normal length version as well." —mayacoston

    Get it from Amazon for $37.29+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and eight colors).

    22. Or a cuddly teddy jacket in case you want to always feel like you're wrapped in a blanket. You're gonna need/want/etc., both the button-up and zip-up versions... in all the colors. Sorry not sorry!


    Reviewers suggest sizing up for that blogger lewk like seen with the zip version on the models.

    Promising review: "OBSESSED!!! It's super comfy and warm! Love love love it! It feels expensive and is super cute. You don't have to spend so much money on trendy items — it's so not worth it when you can find cute dupes." —Vanessa

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and in 30 styles).

    23. A sun-kissed print to liven up your gallery wall sitch. I own this and it is FANTASTIC.

    I also have this print! This LA-based company was founded by Mexican-born artist, Ilse Valfré. You'll love each item more than the last. I've also bought a shirt and phone cases that are more or less compliment bait.

    Get it from Valfre for $48.

    24. A horror-theme Lotería game featuring lots of baddies like El Catrin (Chucky with a loose definition of "well dresssed") and El Flasher (from Gremlins). After all, you've exhausted all your games you have in the house. It's time for a fresh one.

    CuteLA / Etsy

    Get them from CuteLA on Etsy for $14.95.

    25. Fun wool socks in tons of colors and patterns you can let peek out from your ankle boots for a bit of color amongst a rainbow of fall neutrals. Time to toss those breezy socks from last year.

    Get at least pairs from Amazon for $8.99+ (15 varieties).

    26. A "dusk" candle with a magical mix that'll just feel right to light on evenings now that the days are shorter. It's a combo of jasmine, patchouli, saffron, ebony wood, and lily of the valley. Fancy!

    Parachute Home

    Get it from Parachute Home for $49.

    27. And an all-black candle accessory set because blowing out at that flame super hard is incredibly dramatic, but can make you end up with wax on your face. (Trust me, it's happened to me!)


    Promising review: "For years I have just been using scissors to trim my wicks but the trimmed pieces would often fall onto my candle wax making them look awful. The trimmer keeps the trimmed portion contained so this doesn’t happen. I don’t really use the bell shaped snuffer often, but the tool that you use to bend the wick over into the hot candle wax to snuff it out without all the smoke? Seriously, I’ve been missing out. Tools you didn’t know you needed but they make burning candles so much more enjoyable. Handy storage box, they look nice and seem to be good quality so far." —KeCaRi

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    28. A sweater dress with bell sleeves and a self-tie belt that'll make you even more photogenic (as if that's even possible) while keeping you feeling comfy.,

    Promising review: "This is my new favorite item in my entire wardrobe! The material is super comfortable and not too thin. I feel like I’m wearing a light sweatshirt but look like I’m rocking a super cute dress! It goes great with tights and booties or leggings and boots. I just ordered it in another color." —PW

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 11 colors).
