You broke out the fall decorations as soon as September hit. You've been planning your Halloween costume for months. You were first in line the day that Starbucks brought back the PSL. Your closet is 90% sweaters, flannels, and boots.
Basically, you're obsessed with fall.
It is the best season, after all. If you agree, here are all the things you need to have the best fall ever, from pumpkin everything to the coziest home decor.
1. This pumpkin spice starter pack
I have a lot to thank Starbucks for (like getting me through many work days) but the most important is the invention of the pumpkin spice latte. Now you can whip up your favorite drink at home with these coffee pods—which people say taste as flavorful and bold as the real thing—and pumpkin cookie straws to sip them with.
2. This plush throw you'll want to snuggle up with
There is no better way to spend a cold autumn evening than curled up with a good book, a mug of hot chocolate, and the coziest blanket known to man. And this faux fur throw from Pottery Barn comes pretty close to the latter. Not only is it ultra plush but it's also machine washable. Win-win.
3. This candle that smells like apple cider
Good news: Just because there isn't a freshly baked pie in the oven doesn't mean your house can't smell like there is. Nordstrom shoppers are obsessed with these Capri candles, especially in the spiced cider scent, which has hints of apple, cinnamon, clove, and fir.
4. The spookiest sweater
Why wait for Christmas to don your most festive sweater? The spooky girl options at ModCloth range from cute (kittens and candy corn!) to creepy (think vampires and bats) and are a great way to incorporate a little fright night flair into your everyday attire.

5. Our favorite slow cooker
Some call it fall, others call it slow cooker season. And after trying out some of the top models on the market, our experts named the Cuisinart Multi-Cooker the best slow cooker of the year because it performed better than the others at all of our food tests and was hands down the easiest to use (and clean!).
6. This fire that doesn't require wood or matches
Real fires are cool but fake fires are even better if you're trying to avoid the mess and the possibility of, you know, burning the whole house down. Users like that this crackling log, which plugs right into the wall, because it's super simple to install and still looks and sounds like the real thing.
7. This fall wardrobe essential
Soft, thick, and cozy, flannel is basically this season's uniform. According to reviewers, this flannel shirt from Legendary Whitetails is one of the best of its kind because it fits true to size (a.k.a it's flattering!) and it's not too heavy nor too light.
8. The perfect pie dish
Did you know that cast iron pie pans exist? I didn't—but they do. And based on the hundreds of 5-star reviews, this one from Camp Chef could help you make the best apple pie ever. Bakers enjoy that it cooks their pies evenly and that they can take it right from the oven to the table.
9. The prettiest pumpkins you can buy
What's elegant, shiny, and sparkly all over? These mosaic pumpkins from Pottery Barn. Each of the glass tiles is hand-glued onto the gourd so no two are the same and they add a glamorous autumn accent to your home.
10. This playful doormat
When it comes to decor, it's not just what's on the inside that matters. The outside is just as important, which is where a cheeky doormat like this one comes in. Handmade to order, this mat is very durable (it's water-resistant and coated with UV protectant) and eco-friendly, which reviewers say they love.
11. This 'smart' coffee mug
If you're someone like me who needs their coffee to be so hot it's basically burning your mouth, you might benefit from a smart coffee mug like the Ember one, which lets you control the temperature via your phone. One of our experts tried it for herself and was pleased to find her tea really did stay warm for hours—and thousands of other Amazon reviewers agree.
12. These buffalo check pillows for your couch
Most trends come and go, but it seems that the buffalo check craze is here to stay—and I'm more than okay with that. If you're mad for plaid, you'll like these pillow covers, which are highly rated on Amazon for being great quality (the fabric is thick and fits pillows well) and easy to clean.
13. These boots with a cult following
People are obsessed with L.L.Bean duck boots—and for good reason. With a soft flannel lining, water-resistant exterior, and broken-in feel, these boots are often sold out or on back-order (so act fast!). Some customers even call them the most comfortable shoes they've ever owned.
14. This brilliant bonfire accessory
Take your marshmallow roasting (and s'mores eating) skills to the next level with one of these colorful skewers. Comfortable to hold and easy to extend out to their full 34-inch length, the retractable sticks have nearly 1,000 positive reviews on Amazon.
15. These thermal socks to keep your feet warm
No slippers, no problem. All you really need for toastier toes is a pair of these thick thermal socks, which use an extra-heavy lining so your feet stay warmer for longer. According to their hundreds of glowing reviews, the socks are ridiculously soft and comfortable to wear around the house.
16. The best instant camera
If you didn't take pictures of apple picking and pumpkin carving, did it even happen? Capture all your fall festivities with our experts' favorite instant camera, the Instax Mini. While it's a little pricier, it's the Fujifilm instant photo camera with the most features, like double exposure mode and high performance flash.
17. This tote for anyone who loves wine
If you're looking for me on a fall weekend, chances are I'm at a winery or brewery. So this handy travel tote, which conveniently carries four bottles of wine, was basically designed with me in mind. It's gotten great reviews on Amazon for keeping wine cool (and protected) thanks to its thick layer of insulation and for being well-made and durable.
18. This dish you didn't know you needed
Anthropologie is like my Target—I go there to return something and walk out $200 poorer with a bunch of things I didn't need but now can't live without. This pumpkin-shaped cocotte was the product of one of my latest sprees and honestly, I don't regret it. It's the perfect size when you're cooking for two and I love that it can go in the oven, microwave, and dishwasher.
19. This hat that's all over Instagram
Everyone knows that hats aren't just for bad hair days anymore. Especially if your hat of choice is one like this wool fedora from Sole Society. Beloved by fashion bloggers, the wide-brimmed hat is praised for being comfortable and lightweight so you can wear it all day long.
20. This chunky knit scarf to wear outside
When it comes to scarves, the bigger, the better. It can never be too oversized, too warm, or too chunky. That's why this infinity scarf has over 1,000 5-star reviews which say that it's high quality—a.k.a it's soft, not itchy—and really keeps your neck warm.
21. This portable seat for game day
Spending a fall Sunday cheering on your team is fun. But spending it on a hard bleacher or stadium chair? Not so much. That's why this collapsible, cushioned seat has such great reviews—it provides the comfort you need to sit through the whole game and people appreciate how lightweight and easy to carry it is.
22. This pan so you can make your own donuts
Three words: apple cider donuts. They're a seasonal staple and one that you can whip up using this popular pan. Nearly 1,000 home cooks have given it a 5-star rating, saying that the non-stick surface makes the pan easy to clean and use (the donuts slide right out!).
23. This fall-themed face mask
Because there's no such thing as having too much pumpkin in your life, beauty products like this overnight mask exist. And people who have used it swear that their skin looks and feels more hydrated and glowy when they wake up in the morning, thanks to the good-for-you vitamins found in pumpkin.
24. These dark and moody plates
Goodbye bright whites of summer, hello dramatic darks of fall. This sultry stoneware collection from Anthropologie is neutral enough to use all season long yet striking enough to use as a subtly spooky set for Halloween.
25. This teach-yourself-to-knit kit
Any person obsessed with fall is likely just as obsessed with chunky knits (see the above blanket!). Instead of buying your scarf weather gear, you can learn to make it yourself with this kit, which provides all the materials you need along with step-by-step directions which are easy to follow, according to its users.
26. This gadget to peel all of your apples
All those apples you brought home from the orchard aren't going to peel themselves—and doing it with a potato peeler or, worse, a measly paring knife just isn't going to cut it. Instead, consider this cast iron contraption which Amazon customers say is super easy to use. In fact, one reviewer even claims it can peel, core, and slice an apple in under 40 seconds!
27. The punniest dish towel
Washing the dishes may be America's most hated chore but this adorable dish towel will at least make the task a little bit more bearable. According to reviews on Anthropologie's site, the pictures don't even do it justice—the pattern is hand-painted and has a touch of shimmer to it, too.
