    2. A striped color-blocked cardigan can bring the Rainbow Brite vibes from your childhood into the present day ~while~ keeping you nice and cozy.

    Promising review: "I loved this sweater from the moment I put it on. It's much comfier than expected and as a plus-size person, I appreciate that the XL gave me that huggable, cozy, loose fit I wanted in a sweater of this style. It's flattering enough to dress up with some fun accessories over a dress, but also snuggly enough to lounge around on lazy days with it over pajamas. The colors are vibrant and gorgeous and I'm planning on ordering other colors as well. For the price, the quality is good. I'm pretty picky about acrylic fabrics and breathability but this is a perfect weight. It's warm without being oppressive and not itchy at all. This curvy, queer, nonbinary person is absolutely blown away by the deliciously roomy fit, the pride-tastic colors, pockets, and flattering drape. It definitely sparks joy whenever I put it on. In fact, I'm wearing it now!" —nessiemonster

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 13 styles)

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this blanket. It is so soft, comfy, and nice to cuddle up in. The edges are sewn extremely well and it has the feel of a high-quality blanket. The yellow color in the photo is exactly what it looks like in person. It is great to snuggle up, sit on the couch, and watch TV. This blanket is well worth the money! I'd like to buy the pink one for my daughter!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in eight colors).

    Promising review: "I love this little dress and get so many compliments. When I wear it with leggings and flats, I feel like I'm a dancer with lots of movement and enjoy it on the weekends. When I dress it up with tall boots, a cardigan, and scarf, it turns into a stunning office-appropriate look. I am 5'7" and was about 185 or 190 pounds when I bought this in an extra-large. It was plenty roomy..." —M. Hunke

    Heads up: Several reviewers noted how sturdy and effective these pumpkin-carving tools are so these are NOT for kids.

    Promising review: "Holy smokes, these things are serious pumpkin tools! I feel like they need to be stored in the garage with the hardware instead of with the utensils. The first thing my husband said when I took them out of the box was 'Are those full time? Wow!' I expect this to be the last set of pumpkin carving tools I ever have to buy. Heck, these may get passed down to my grandchildren. They are just that sturdy and sharp. And speaking of sharp, I actually wouldn't let your kids use these unsupervised as they make quick work of pumpkins AND fingers." —A. Colbert

    Get it from Amazon for $16.92 or a kid-friendly set for $7.95.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    11. A ladle set now that you'll be eating warm bowls of soup and chili regularly. It also doubles as a colander so you can use it for pasta!


    Promising review: "This ladle takes high heat easily. Although it is shallower than a lot of slotted spoons on the market, it's great for cooking, especially for noodles and soup. The handle is comfortable and easy to clean up. It was much sturdier and higher quality than I was expecting. I love hanging them on my kitchen wall. I was very happy with this purchase." —Mai Nguyen

    Get two from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two color options).

    12. Water-resistant belt-wrapped boots made with faux suede, stitching, and lace details to keep your feet nice and bundled when it gets cold out and you have to actually leave your warm lair., Amazon

    When the unpredictable fall temperatures start to feel like a premature winter, it's going to be so clutch to have these beauties to pull from your closet.

    Promising review:
    "Exactly what I wanted. I wear a lot of leggings so I wanted nice boots that go with anything. The boots are pretty and appear to be well made. You can remove the printed cover, roll the boots down to expose the lacey insert, or leave them plain. They have some arch support and a sole that I think will last a while. I wear a 9-9.5. The description says if you wear a true 1/2 size, then you should order smaller. I should have listened to my common sense and ordered the 10. I ordered 9. I was able to get my foot in but it was just a little shorter than I like. They have a nice rounded toe. I have wide feet and they weren't terribly cramped but I know I would not be able to wear them long and I would like to add arch support if possible. The boots are nice enough that I went ahead and ordered a size 10 in a different color. I sprayed this pair with waterproofing so the material doesn't get the white salt lines on them this winter. The color of the boots didn't change. I can wear them in all weather but they are not snow boots." —Deb K.

    Get them from Amazon for $33.35+ (available in 16 colors and sizes 6-11).

    13. Festive Thanksgiving drink sleeves because yeah, the holiday table will be a fancy spread but when the turkey's all gobbled up, everyone's gonna want to let their bellies out, whip out the canned beers (and sodas for the kids), and flip on a good ole football game. Stock up on these cutesy Turkey-themed sleeves now so you'll keep water stains off your good furniture and the Thanksgiving vibes going for the whole day.


    You'll get 12 can sleeves in a pack, each with a different holiday design.

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99.

    14. A black cat candle to bring witchy Halloween vibes to your house. It'll get much creepier as it melts and reveals the skeleton lurking underneath the wax.


    Promising review: "It's really fun to watch it melt. I kept it on a paper plate so the wax wouldn't stick on any surfaces, and was left with a big, satisfying pile of wax. The back is the last thing to melt and the metal skeleton becomes stained black with soot, which makes the effect even cooler." —Emily Baker

    Get it from Amazon for $34 (available in six colors).

    15. Hempz Pumpkin Spice and Vanilla Chai Body Moisturizer that'll have smelling like Autumn from face to toe!


    This moisturizer is paraben- and gluten-Free. It's also vegan!

    Promising review: "The smell of this is super! It’s not a super sweet smell but more like a spicy pumpkin smell. I love it. The best thing about this lotion is that it is an all-day moisturizer! No kidding, it makes my skin feel so good." —Angela M. Falstick

    Get it from Amazon for $17.30.

    16. A witches' brew mug can come in handy whenever you need a lil' extra magic to get through your day. When you finally take your first sip from this cutie, feel free to let out a witch's cackle because it's only appropriate.

    Promising review: "It is the only thing I am eating and drinking out of!! It's too cute and totally makes you feel like a bad to the bone witch. It's so cute when you can see hot coffee steaming out of it. Love it ." —Brooke

    Get it from Amazon for $12.94 (available with free shipping).

    19. A cat spoon that'll hang its paws over the side of your cup and give you a warm welcome now that you'll be downing more hot tea and coffee to sip your way through the cold weather. Isn't this spoon just PAW-fect?!


    Promising review: "Love this little spoon! It fits perfectly on the edge of my coffee mug. Now, I no longer have to go searching for a spoon to stir my morning coffee! Since it sits on the edge of the cup, my fingers don't get sticky from a wet handle. Plus, it's absolutely adorable and makes me think of my own kitty while I'm away at work. This spoon has become an essential part of my morning routine." —Brianna S.

    Promising review: "My sister got me these as a gift and they're adorable. I wear a 6.5 shoe size and they fit perfectly. They're also long enough so that when I wear my ankle rain boots, they don't scratch me. If you're a cat lover, these socks are for you!!" —Marissa Resnick

    Get the set of five from Amazon for $9.99 (available in six styles and one size).

    21. A batwing sweater with a fun cable knit pattern and an eyelet design that makes it breathable and super appropriate for in-between weather days this fall. Layer it on top of a tank top for a look that's equal parts effortless and stylish.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and seven colors).

    22. Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask because cooler weather causes the skin to be drier than normal and your face is gonna want you to treat it to a little extra hydrating TLC. This mask is designed to soften your face and give it more moisture after just 15 minutes!, Amazon

    These masks are oil-, alcohol-, paraben-, sulfate-, ane cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "After too much micro-needling and retinoids, my skin was parched. There were literal dry patches from my overzealous routine. Even though I have been moisturizing, I still wasn't entirely back to normal. Enter these sheet masks! I have used sheet masks before and really enjoyed the overall effect. These were no exception! They're blue in color which reinforces the mask you try to move it in the ideal place on your face. That's a really nice touch! Once the mask feels comfortably positioned, you just peel this thin layer away and gently continue to smooth the mask on your face. I gently massaged this mask on occasion and left it on for the full 15 minutes. When I removed the mask, there was just really hydrated, lustrous skin. Nice! I massaged in the remaining moisturizer, waited for it to dry down, and then went to bed. When I woke up, my skin undoubtedly looked better hydrated and my make-up went on super smooth... Also, while there is a very light floral fragrance, it is refreshing and once it has been applied, the mask almost seems to have no fragrance... This hydrating mask is truly effective. I will absolutely buy this product in the future." —Dr. E

    Get them from Amazon for $14.94+ (available in five styles).

    23. A flameless LED candle set to give your home an ambient glow on fall evenings when you want to chill around the house. Each candle is made of real wax and has a flickering setting so the "flame" will move like a real candle. You'll get that by-the-candlelight feel ~without~ the threat of burning your house down since these flames are 100% remote-controlled and battery-operated.


    Promising review: "These are amazing! The real wax surrounding the bulb makes them look and feel pretty authentic — much classier than the plastic stuff I was seeing at the store. The remote works beautifully and it's nice that you can choose flicker or steady light. I think I'll order another set to use during the winter holidays too! Again, these are much nicer quality than any other electric candles I've seen, and the remote makes managing the lighting super easy."—Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in two sizes).

    24. Festive, expensive-looking loafers to fancy up your fall shoe collection without messing up your budget. They have an adorable pom-pom ball on the top and a super short gold heel for extra flair.


    Tip: These shoes also come in black which would look SO gorgeous with a witch costume dress this Halloween, especially if you want to keep the witchy theme going down to your feet but don't want to wear uncomfy heels. Ya' know, since you won't ~actually~ be riding on a broom that night.

    Promising review: "Honestly, I was just hoping for a passable Aquazzura dupe but these have exceeded my expectations. Not only are they lovely and extremely close to the real $300 version, but they also come in big sizes which is something most other 'inspired-by' versions don’t do. The puffball is beautiful from the moment you take it out of the packaging — no mashed down ugliness that requires endless coaxing to make presentable. They’re very comfy, too." —Sarah W. Anderson

    Get them from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in sizes 4-12 and five colors).

    25. A fruit-picker tool that's right on time for apple-picking season. This thing will turn your next family apple-picking trip into the coolest, most efficient one you've had. The tool's end is designed with gentle claws to pull the proper fruits down easily plus a cushion at the bottom of the catching basket so you take home bruise-free picks!

    You'll save so much time and effort in this tool that it'll pay for itself over and over with the number of fruits you can collect in different seasons. It's 13-feet tall and designed to be extra lightweight so you don't wear yourself out while you trek through the orchard. It's also made of stainless steel so it won't rust over time. Of course, you can also use this to pick all kinds of hard-to-reach fruits!

    Promising review: "Don't know how I went for so many years without one of these. I had made my own version for years and my hubby made me purchase this item. He was right! It works great, is lightweight, and reaches almost to the top of my very mature apple, pear, and plum trees... It is a very durable and helpful tool. No need to get the ladder out. Just extend the pole and you are in business." —Sharkkat

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

    26. Tarte Fall Feels Eye & Cheek Palette to create beauty looks inspired by the best parts of the season! The palette features the shades Corn Maze (gold shimmer), Pumpkin Patch (copper shimmer), Apple Picking (red shimmer), Sippin' Cider (forest green shimmer), Tailgate (navy shimmer), Homecoming (matte cream), Hayride (matte warm tan), and Fall Feels (pinky nude blush).
