During a year that’s more, well, precedented than this one, fall can send us into a bit of a nesting mode. Spending more time at home while the temperatures are chilly and pumpkin-everything is in season makes us want to bathe in every fall-related thing we can get our hands on—and this year, that’s amplified by approximately 1 trillion.
With a fall that’s destined to be spent mostly at home, we’re stocking up on all of the things that are going to bring us joy throughout the fall season—and we all know the easiest way to do that is with two-day Prime shipping.
These are the best things our editors have ordered from Amazon for fall 2020—from super-soft slippers to seasonal spices you didn’t know you needed to a face mask that will save your winter skin. Add to your cart now and thank us later.
The second the temperatures drop beneath 60 in Chicago, my face turns from that of a human being to something resembling the ground of the Sahara desert. I need to go into hydration mode the second September hits to prevent as much dryness as I physically can, and this mask is an absolute key to that. I'll slather on a layer a few times a week (or honestly once a day), and it helps my skin to look dewy and like I actually have healthy skin, which is no easy feat. This is a staple in my cold-weather skincare routine and will be for the rest of my days.
To avoid my apartment feeling too cluttered with fall decor, I've been trying to swap out my regular decor that's there year-round with some that is more fall-appropriate, and these pillows are the perfect addition. They're fall-esque but don't feel like obvious decor—they just make my apartment feel more cozy and ready for the chilly season.
OK fine, I'm basic. Starting September 1st, I like to put pumpkin spice on everything: my coffee, spaghetti squash, a banana bread (you name it, I've tried it). I like this brand because it's certified and full of really potent and good-for-you spices that not only taste like autumn in a bottle, but pack a major health boost.
Come fall, I'm obsessed with anything that has "long," "cozy," or "knit" in the description (I think we've already established I'm pretty basic). Leopard print is basically a neutral in my mind, so I'm obsessed with this chic, soft cardigan that's just over $20.
If you know me, you know I have an unhealthy attachment to my essential oil diffuser. I love it on all day, every day. Typically, I go for lavender essential oil before bed and peppermint oil during the day, but this year, I'm getting in the spirit of the season and switching to essential oils like nutmeg, pine, cinnamon, fir needle, and clove. Sounds like a forest, right? Just what I want during a cozy fall evening at home! Plus, it comes with a "special blend," called The Happy Holidays Blend, to which I say it is never too early to start getting ready for Christmas.
I am allll about a giant fuzzy cardigan since I can swap out the shirt underneath and still feel like I'm wearing something different than the last 18 days in a row. Works with jeans or leggings or fancy leggings (read: faux leather) or sweatpants or no pants. A dream.
As the nights get colder, longer, and dryer, I know that my face will need lots more moisture. This 100 percent vegan overnight cream is amazing night—or day—on your face, powered by melatonin and hemp seed oil. It also doesn’t leave a film of mineral oil on your face or on your pillow overnight. It has been my new favorite product in my fall beauty arsenal, with just enough moisture and glow to get my face through harsher weather.
Yes, I am a griller—a serious griller—down to the charcoal, the smoker, and the accessories. If most of your cooking happens outdoors on the grill like mine, you know how important it is to protect it from the rain, wind, and sun to keep it from rusting when the weather gets cooler. This thick grill and smoker cover is big enough to cover the whole grill and is heavy duty and waterproof, so that it won’t fly off. This fall, I’ll be ready to preserve one of my favorite summer tools.
Fall is my favorite season, and now that I have a whole house of my own to decorate, no corner will be spared with fall home décor, starting with these cute velvet decorative pumpkins to scatter all over my home. They come in warm fall colors like rust and gold and are a great pinch of lux design to add into the home. If I’m going to be stuck at home for the rest of the fall, I plan to be stuck with great and cozy home décor to look at and admire!
I was hunting for biker shorts for forever (I didn’t think I could pull them off) and finally found these beauties! The white color is not see-through and they are perfect for running and working out. Put on a large graphic tee and some sneakers and you have a regular day outfit too.
I cannot wait until Halsey’s collection of poetry comes out in November. I pre-ordered it as soon as she posted about it on instagram. Even the cover art is gorgeous!!
I’ve been on the hunt for a lightweight robe for a while now. No matter the season, I’m always so warm while getting ready (especially just out of the shower), so this is perfect for standing in the bathroom doing hair and makeup. It’s also great for fall because while it’s lightweight, the waffle material is thick enough that it’s super cozy too. Also, it’s only $14! *gasp*
I’ve had my eye on the Ugg slide slippers for two seasons now, but I just can’t bring myself to spend $80 on them. These faux fur slides have tons of glowing five-star reviews and a few of our editors love them too. They are currently in my cart and will be purchased ASAP!
I live in a small studio apartment with a total of two windows (yes, I’m crying about it). Half of one is taken up by a window A/C unit, and there are some not-so-cute blinds on both. I’m not sure why waited so long, but I finally ordered these pretty linen-style curtains to cover up all of the ugliness while still letting light in—and to bring in some extra warmth and texture for the fall season. At under $20 for a set of two, these seriously can’t be beat.
It might seem odd to buy a set of tank tops for fall—but as we all know, fall weather can change on a dime. I'm purchasing this set of cropped tanks to layer while working from home (sometimes I get so worked up while working that I strip layers off and on rapidly, lol) and while exercising. Sometimes I leave the house for a run, only to rip my jacket off within a mile or two. These will be perfect for in-between weather!
I've already seen two influencers I love sporting this sherpa jacket, so this was an immediate purchase for me. It's cozy, under $30, and I plan on wearing it constantly once the weather cools down. With six colors available, there's a very strong chance I'll own at least two by the end of the season.
I added this book to my Amazon cart right after watching "Get Organized with The Home Edit" on Netflix. While I know I realistically won't get to organizing right this moment (trying to soak in every moment of nonviolent Chicago fall temps before we hit 30 degrees and below), I know that the cold is coming and I'll be spending more time indoors as the weeks crawl on. When that happens, I plan to get it together and get cracking on clearing my clutter.
How freakin' cute is this coffee mug? I've never truly embraced the Halloween season but this year, I'm excited to follow the lead of my coworkers (Beth and Maddie, I'm talking about you) and go all out. While this mug is intended to be seasonal, I have a feeling I'll be using it proudly all year long. The witch is IN and she is READY.
