Fall is a beautiful season of harvest, gratitude, and coziness.
It's got Halloween & Thanksgiving vibes altogether. There's orchards, pumpkin patches, and spices in the air. The colors are warm and earthy and things feel bountiful.
Where I live in Las Vegas, it still doesn't feel quite like Fall yet (it's still 98 degrees).... So I have to get into the Fall spirit in other ways.
If you're like me, and you want to crank up the dial and embrace some more Fall-ness into your life, keep reading and you'll get some ideas on how you want to celebrate this new season.

Shopping for Fall... sustainably.
But before we get to the Amazon list, let's quick talk about how to shop sustainably.
Before you shop online, check your local thrift stores for products like the ones listed below. When you shop in person, you reduce the emissions that it takes to ship these products to you.
Also, most retail stores have all seasonal items out front and center so when you walk into a Savers or Goodwill, all the Fall and Halloween items are the main focus which makes it easy to shop for the season.
Shopping Amazon sustainably
When it comes to shopping sustainably on Amazon, here's a few tips on reducing the carbon footprint.
Related: Eco-friendly Amazon products to live a more sustainable life.
Choose frustration-free packaging.
This is offered on select items and uses only the product packaging without an extra layer of packaging, which will show what's inside.
You have the option to hide it by choosing Amazon packaging, however, if you don't mind and you're looking to save some packaging then opt to go without the Amazon packaging.
It might look something like this when you're shopping.
Shop second hand on amazon
When you buy second hand, you're reducing waste by saving the resources it takes to create a new product. You also save the item from going to a landfill, and you save some money! That's a win-win!
Look for the "buy used" option when you add it to your cart. It might look something like this when you're shopping.
Now that we got that out of the way, lets get into all the Fall goodies!
For inspiration, browse my Fall Vibes Pinterest board to get some ideas and then source supplies from thrift stores or Amazon.
If you're somewhere that doesn't have those pretty orange leaves outside yet, like in Las Vegas, then it's time to bring that Fall essence indoors!
It's cheap & easy to get your house to start looking and feeling like Fall.
You can find artificial leaves, flowers, pumpkins, and anything that feels Fall-y to you, and put them in baskets, bowls, mason jars, wine bottles, kombucha bottles, or whatever else you have.
Like this small bundle of Fall artificial flowers.
Or these artificial Maple Leaves
Or fill some baskets up with a mixture of artificial pumpkins, pinecones, and leaves.
Spruce up a mantle, table or railing with a Maple Leaf Garland.
Or if you want to go a bit more rustic and chic, these assorted pumpkins would be super cute in a basket with some maple leaves.
If thrift stores are open in your area, I definitely recommend checking them first. I found some great decor items like these for just a couple bucks each at my local Goodwill.
Nothing screams "Fall cozy vibes" more than a great fall-colored throw blanket. It just makes you want to curl up on the couch and watch Halloween movies, doesn't it?
This mustard throw blanket adds a great pop of color to any room and immediately adds some fall vibes to your bedroom or living room.
Look for the "buy used" option on this one.
Throw Pillow Covers
Or add some color and comfort with these cute orange corduroy throw pillow covers.
These may also come in the "buy used" option depending on availability.
Pumpkin Scented Candle
Now that you've decorated the house, it's not fall until you get a fall scented candle!
I recommend Lorenzen Candle Co. 's Pumpkin Bakery candle. It touts all natural soy wax, cotton wicks, and hand poured with fragrance oils that smell AHH-MAZING and perfect for getting into the fall mood.
Pumpkin Flavored Coffee
If coffee is part of your morning routine, I love switching to some fall flavors to get into the spirit of this season.
I love Cameron's coffee since they boast about sustainable sourcing, and their coffee beans are always smooth and rich. We usually get the Vanilla Hazelnut flavored coffee from our local Sprouts, but their Pumpkin Spice flavored coffee is available on Amazon and I had to try some!
You can also opt for a regular cup of coffee and add some Pumpkin Spice Flavored Creamer. We love Califia Farms Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk Coffee Creamer.
What goes perfectly with some pumpkin spiced coffee?
A Fall mug of course! Like this one from Sweet Water Decor.
It even looks great as decor and is super giftable.
Now this one isn't specific to Fall, but since it's starting to get colder, your skin might start to feel a little dry.
Light your pumpkin scented candle and grab some delicious smelling sugar scrub like this Tree Hut Brown Sugar Scrub for a luxurious act of self care.
Fall is such a fun season to decorate, taste, smell, and feel. With all of these little Fall treats for your senses, there's no way you won't
Now that you've got some ideas on this, let me know what ways you are going to embrace this magical season!
