Blue Page Boho Throw Pillow Covers

I switch out my pillows consistently throughout the year, so I love that I can replace my summer covers for this tufted one with adorable tassels. The boho throw pillow cover has a touch of fall colors such as green, yellow, and wine on a cream background to naturally blend with most neutral decor. It's also a great year-round pillow because of its accented details.

Sweet Water Mulled Cider Candle


Seasonal candles are burning constantly in my apartment, and I can't wait to order this fall-inspired candle that smells as sweet as it looks. It's infused with aromas like apple, orange, cinnamon, cranberry, cedar, and amber to fill your home with an orchard-like smell for up to 50 hours. The brand has other scents I want to try like pumpkin spice, flannel, autumn wreath, and cinnamon roll.

CRFNI 60-Piece Dried Pampas Grass


I've been searching for a high-quality yet affordable dried grass bouquet for months, and I finally found the best of the best. Most bouquets cost over $50 for just a few stems, but this 60-piece arrangement comes with 15 brown dried pampas grasses, 15 white pampas grasses, and 30 pieces of pampas reeds to create a full-bodied bouquet for just $22.

Buffy Puffer Blanket


This outdoor puffer blanket has been a total godsend for Midwestern fall nights. It's made from eucalyptus and recycled polyester that provides the same warmth and feel as my puffer coats. It's the perfect companion for fall park days and bonfire nights, and I know it's going to come in handy when the snow starts falling.

Amazon Basics Enameled Cast Iron Casserole Skillet


Cast iron skillets are essential for year-round cooking, but they're especially necessary in the fall months. My dutch oven gets so much use making soups and stews, but I've been eyeing this casserole skillet that's basically a skillet and dutch oven hybrid. And compared to high-end models that go for several hundred dollars, this $52 pick is a no-brainer.

Northern Lights Autumn Harvest Taper Candles


Tapered candles are a simple way to add dimension to your home decor without spending a fortune. I love this set of six 12-inch autumn-color candle sticks because they'll instantly dress up your dining table, mantel, or bedroom dresser. There's also a Christmas set I'm looking forward to getting in December.

Threshold Artificial Hops Wreath


Your entryway needs an upgrade, too—and this hops wreath is the perfect way to welcome fall guests. The simple design won't distract from other outdoor elements like pumpkins, gourds, and Halloween decorations. I might take some inspiration from Pinterest and add ribbon and a fall sign to the wreath for a show-stopping front door.

Quility Weighted Blanket with Soft Cover

This weighted blanket has been in my shopping cart for months, and I'm finally pulling the trigger. It provides a soft pressure with its micro glass bead filling and its temperature-regulating construction, which is perfect for hot sleepers like me. It also has a removable and machine-washable soft polyester cover for extra coziness.

Bodum GooseNeck Electric Water Kettle


I'm an avid tea drinker, and this gooseneck electric tea kettle is exactly what I need to brew the perfect cup. It can boil several cups of tea at a time, and the slim spout allows you to control how much water is released to seamlessly pour each cup. I'm also planning on gifting it to the other tea lovers in my life.

Homemaid Living Bamboo Bathtub Tray

Drawing a bath and forgetting to grab my book, candle, or a glass of wine is a huge pet peeve of mine. Luckily, this expandable bamboo bathtub tray allows me to display all of my relaxation essentials without fear of spilling. It even has special compartments designed to hold your wine glass, iPad or Kindle, and phone in place.
