As you’ve probably noticed, the leaves have changed to shades of red, orange, and gold, and the air has become crisp and cool. There’s no denying it―fall has arrived. It’s the season of comfort, warmth, and togetherness. The holidays are approaching, too, which means it’s time to start thinking about gift ideas.
However, you don’t have to wait for Christmas to get into the gift-giving spirit. Fall, with its cozy vibes and warmth, is the perfect time to show your loved ones how much you care. And what better way than with fall-inspired gift ideas, perfect for the Thanksgiving holiday?
Here are seven fantastic fall-inspired gift ideas for a warm and cozy Thanksgiving.
Bath and Body Kits
There’s no better way to unwind and relax during the fall season than with a luxurious bath and body kit. You can purchase an already-made set in-store or online, or you can DIY it.
Sets typically include scented bath bombs, shower gels, body and hand lotions, and more, allowing your loved ones to pamper themselves in the comfort of their own home. If you’re doing it yourself, try adding a personal touch to the kit and include what you think your loved one would enjoy the most.
Including items like candles, bath bombs, and perfumes? Look for ones with fragrances that evoke the spirit of fall―pumpkin spice, apple cinnamon, and warm vanilla, to name a few.
Speaking of candles, what better gift for your loved ones than scented candles?
Candles are a classic gift choice for any occasion, but they are especially nice during the fall season. The soft, flickering light of a candle can create a cozy ambiance, making it an ideal addition to any Thanksgiving gathering.
Consider the scent of the candle you’re about to give, too. Earthy aromas are great during the autumn months. Think about the smell of fallen leaves, cinnamon, cloves, or roasted marshmallows.
Not only do candles provide a warm and inviting atmosphere, but they also make lovely decorations for the dinner table or mantle.
Of course, if your loved one has any little tots or animals around, a burning candle may not be the best choice. Instead, opt for LED candles, which can still provide your loved ones with a cozy atmosphere.
When you think of fall fashion, what comes to your mind? Layers. And what better way to layer an outfit than with cute cardigans?
Cardigans are a must-have for any fall fashion enthusiast. Even if you’re not a fashion guru, they’re still a functional item that provides extra warmth to an outfit.
Cardigans come in many shapes and sizes⏤long and short, button-up and open, knitted and cotton. Their versatility makes it easy to find a piece that will match any personal aesthetic.
When it comes to fall, though, try choosing colors that match the autumn season. Deep burgundy, forest green, or mustard yellow are all perfect colors for fall.
Coats and Jackets
There’s a lot happening during the colder months of the year. From preparing for a Thanksgiving feast to sightseeing all the beautiful autumn scenery and gift shopping for Christmas, your loved ones are more than likely going to be spending a lot of time outdoors.
So, why not give your loved ones something to keep them comfortable during this time? The warmth and comfort of coats and jackets will ensure your loved ones are insulated from the colder weather.
Whether it’s a classic wool coat, a trendy jacket, or a waterproof parka, a well-chosen coat or jacket will be an asset to any fall wardrobe.
Fall is the perfect time to sip on hot beverages. Coffee, tea, spiced cider, and hot chocolate all add to the coziness of the autumn season. This opportunity is perfect for gifting your loved ones a coffee mug to add to their collection. That way, whenever they’re sipping on their hot beverage of choice, they’ll be thinking of you.
Coffee mugs come in several designs and sizes, and you can even get them personalized for a more thoughtful touch. If you’re just buying a mug from the store, though, get one with a fall-themed motif, such as falling leaves, pumpkins, or cute woodland creatures.
Also, consider choosing a mug that is insulated for when your loved one is on the go.
If you have a loved one who will be hosting Thanksgiving this year, give them some new cookware to make their food prep a little easier.
Dutch ovens are a great choice for the fall season and can be used to make soups and apple crisps. Cast iron skillets are another option and can make many fall dishes, including butternut squash and cornbread.
As a third option, consider gifting your loved one a new roasting pan that will help them prepare their turkey for their big feast.
Scarves, Hats, and Gloves
If your loved one is already good on cardigans and coats, give them a matching scarf, hat, and gloves set to keep their ears, necks, and hands warm. These pieces are perfect for adding finishing touches to any outfit, too.
Choose colors and patterns that embody the autumn spirit. Plaid and herringbone are both great choices. If you’re going for something simpler, like a plain color, then go for ones that are rich and warm, like burgundy or rusty brown.
Who doesn’t love a good throw blanket? Nothing says “cozy fall” quite like cuddling on the couch with one. Not only do throw blankets add function to a space, but they’re also aesthetically pleasing.
Throw blankets come in an assortment of colors, patterns, and textures. As fall settles in, stores are likely to have more autumn-themed ones to choose from.
So whether your loved one will be watching the Thanksgiving parade, enjoying a movie night, or simply curling up with a good book, a throw blanket will be a comforting and welcoming addition to any surroundings and is a great gift idea.
