Hay there. If you haven’t noticed...the leaves are changing color, everyone is baking, and we’re obsessed with finding the best apple cider doughnut.
In other words, we’re falling in love with the season. And as Halloween (and Thanksgiving) approaches, we’re packing our days with autumn favorites. To get you in the mood, we rounded up things that are just the right amount of festive. Go big or gourd home.

A set of bat decals to bust out this October…
You can never be ‘too decorated’ for spooky season. These 3D bats have double-sided tape so they’re easy to stick anywhere. Think doors, entryways, and windows. And when the season is over (boooo), they won’t leave behind a residue. ($6.99+/12 pieces, Leons Party on Etsy)
A suede sneaker that’ll complete your apple-picking outfit…
Cariuma’s signature memory foam and leather insoles will mold oh-so perfectly to your feet. We’re talking all-day comfort and style. Because why sacrifice one for the other? Plus, they’re shipped in recycled packaging. Slip into a pair.* ($98, Cariuma)
A pie recipe book for anyone who loves to get their hands dirty…
With flour and eggs, duh. This book features over 80 recipes from pie expert Petra Paredez. You’ll get step-by-step instructions, an inside look into where she gets her ingredients, and mouth-watering photography. Time to preheat the oven. ($27.59, Bookshop)
A pumpkin carving kit so you can get into the season’s most popular activity…
Applause to those that get super creative. We’ll probably stick to the classic jack-o'-lantern. The kit comes with two saws, one poker, and one scoop. And they’re made from stainless steel, so they won’t snap halfway through carving. Boom. ($16.92, Amazon)
