Fall leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, bonfires, tailgating, carving pumpkins, fun Halloween costumes and more — Fall is a season to love for many reasons, and one of them is the amazing autumnal FINDS. Here are 19 favorites we’re loving for October.
GAME DAY GEAR
As the weather cools down, football season is coming in hot. We’re showing off our game day spirit with a little sass, because this cheeky hoodie is sure to be a winning touchdown! Find this hilarious game day hoodie for $36 at Something Blue.
It’s just not gameday without a cold drink, are we right? In Louisville, a person can bleed one of two colors — red or blue! So grab yourself a cold one, pop on the koozie color of your choice, and cheer on your favorite team with pride. Find these gameday koozies for $6.95 each at Cordial Lee.
Game day feast
Tailgating is one of our favorite parts of fall, and one of our other favorite parts is eating. These Fancy Panz give your disposable foil pan a little makeover so they will always look great on your table. Find these Fancy Panz for $22.50, and personalize them for an extra $7.50, at Celebrations.
LET’S GO CAMPING
Cooler weather makes for the perfect camping atmosphere, and this super lightweight Salida two-person tent won’t weigh you down on your hike. So find yourself someone to go on an adventure with, then cozy up under the stars. Find this Salida tent for $149.95 at Quest Outdoors.
Light it up
For those who love to camp but maybe don’t have the world’s greatest survival skills, we’re here to help. These solid fuel tablets will have your fire going in no time — without the hassle of rubbing sticks together. Just be sure to bring a lighter with you too! Find this pack of solid fuel tablets for $7.99 at Water + Oak Outdoor Co.
Once your tent is pitched and your campfire is crackling, it’s time to make some s’mores with a delicious twist! For those who ride on the vegan train or those looking for a healthier alternative for the kiddos, these mini vegan vanilla marshmallows are the solution. Find them for $5.99 at Half Peach Bakery.
Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so we just couldn’t resist including Aveda’s Hand Relief Creme. During October, Aveda will donate $5 from the purchase price of this moisturizing creme to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Give yourself the gift of smooth skin plus the gift of giving back! Find it for $26.50 at Omagi Salon Spa.
Calm the frizz
You may have noticed that when the weather gets cooler, the static gets stronger! This time of year, doorknobs start shocking and our hair starts to float up to the heavens. Tame those locks with a dab of Moroccanoil. It’ll give your hair all the relaxation it needs while adding a bit of shine. Find a bottle for $44 at Studio 151.
FOR THE HOME
Time to pull out the fall scented candles, autumn wreaths and other decor, because fall is in full swing. We love the idea of adding a simple candlelit lantern as a table centerpiece or line them along your porch or patio for an evening glow. No need to break the bank for anything fancy, because you can find this one for $20 at Charlotte’s Web.
Running into fall
One of our favorite things about fall is plaid flannel shirts! So, we’re pretty excited to have a table runner, too. This simple touch of black and white plaid gives an autumn table just the right amount of personality. Find this buffalo plaid table runner for $20 at The Olive Branch.
For those who prefer a more subtle fall look than RIP tombstones or pumpkins, driftwood is a nice, light touch that gives any room an earthy feel. We love these long, art-forward strands, and they can be purchased individually or can be bought in multiples to make a driftwood wall. Find them for $21 each at Merridian Home Furnishings.
You don’t have to be at the game to crack open a cold one! Enjoy your brewskie at home, especially with this magnetic bottle opener. It’s made from a Kentucky bourbon barrel and hand-treated with an extremely durable urethane finish to bring out the character in the oak staves. Find this bottle opener for $48 at Aroh Co.
Created from rusted American-made steel and coated with an oil-based formula to prevent further rusting, this whiskey row fleur de lis is full of character. It’s perfect for indoor or outdoor display, and it can even be mounted to the wall using magnets, meaning no visible screws. Find this whiskey row fleur de lis for $69.99 at UP Designs.
Kentucky is killer
Yes, friends. Halloween is almost here. If that doesn’t thrill you, then maybe this Halloween themed t-shirt will. A play on Michael Jackson’s Thriller makes for one killer tee. Find it for $25 at Kentucky for Kentucky.
A pop of pink
A girl can never go wrong with a pop of pink, especially during Breast Cancer Awareness Month! These fun, hot pink tassel earrings are just what we’ve been looking for to fancy up our fall wardrobe. Find them for $18 at Collections Boutique.
Bring a little color back to your fall wardrobe with a cozy vest. We love this one with its grey and pink block print, cream stripe and fringe detailing. Pair it with your favorite jeans and a simple long-sleeve shirt and you’re good to go! Find it for $54 at Six Sisters.
Let’s face it, we can get a pumpkin spice latte just about anywhere these days. But, you can only get Natural Ethiopia Sidama coffee at Heine Brothers’! Curl up under a nice warm blanket with a cup of this magic, and take your fall experience to the next level. Find it for $13.50 at Heine Brothers’.
