It’s official: summer is out and fall is in. 'Tis the season for cooler weather, beautiful changes in scenery, football tailgating fun and more. It's time to break out the fall-scented candles, festive home decor and cozy slippers to get you in the mood. Here are 35 things to help you kick off the season strong.

►More: Pumpkin spice is the flavor of fall. But what is it? And where did it come from?

1. A baking sheet to try new fall recipes

Bake up delicious treats all season long.
Bake up delicious treats all season long.

Fall is the best time to break out your baking sheets and try new fall cookie recipes—or start perfecting your Christmas cookie recipe ahead of schedule.

Our favorite baking sheet that we tested is the Nordic Ware Natural Aluminum Commercial Baker's Half Sheet. It's large enough to fit a dozen cookies and cooks food evenly, making it perfect for pumpkin-flavored cookies (or a frozen pizza).

$23.76 from Amazon

2. A crackling, wood wick candle

Nothing says fall like firing up the fireplace when the temperatures start to dip. If you don't own a fireplace, a wood wick candle can recreate the fire noise that you associate with the autumn months. Our writer tested out the WoodWick candle, which falls under the famous Yankee Candle brand. The result? A delightful, fire-inspired crackling sound filled the room.

3. A cozy harvest throw

There's nothing better than curling up with a blanket on a chilly fall evening. All you need is a cozy throw blanket, a bowl of popcorn and a scary movie and you've got the perfect fall movie night on your hands. This oversized plush blanket sold at QVC has nearly 100 rave reviews for its super soft and cozy material.

4. A weighted blanket to comfort you

Laying under a gravity blanket feels like getting a hug.
Laying under a gravity blanket feels like getting a hug.

For a different kind of blanket, you should give a weighted blanket a try. Not only are they ultra-warm, but the weight itself adds a gentle pressure to your body that helps to calm you down and relieve anxiety or tension — when you’re under a weighted blanket, you’ll feel as though you’re being hugged. Out of all the weighted blankets we tested, we love the Gravity blanket because the weight felt just right compared to others. Plus, it's made of high-quality material that will last for a long time.

5. Flannel sheets for a cozier sleep

Out of all the pie dishes we put to the test (by baking delicious pies in them, no less), we found the Emile Henry Modern Classics Pie Dish to be the best one. It's a gorgeous dish that's sure to impress guests—plus, it's dishwasher, microwave and high-heat safe.

What is the fall season without warm, hearty meals with friends and family? When at-home recipes call for meat—whether it be chicken, pork, beef or beyond—skip the grocery store and try a meat subscription service like Crowd Cow. This specific service sources meat from independent ranchers and farmers, ensuring high-quality, ethically- and sustainably-raised meat is delivered right at you doorstep. When Reviewed tested Crowd Cow, we were wowed by the fresh, juicy and tender meat that was delivered quickly in sustainable packaging.
