"B is for Boo: A Halloween Alphabet," a chillingly charming board book sure to add some silliness to spooky season
I impulse-bought this to use as decor for a Halloween table I put together last year. It's perfect! Each letter has a vintage-inspired illustration with diverse characters and clever details. I'm a big fan!

Promising review: "The illustration style immediately grabbed my attention. I bought it for my toddler but could have just as well bought it for myself. My son loves the book even though I got it after Halloween. He seems to like Halloween imagery and we've read it frequently this December. His favorite letter is B for boo as he likes to scare us all the time." — BlueCactus31

I look forward to baking my way through the whole book!" — Georgia

Etsy shop owner Abbie has a limited collection of these illustrated bookmarks. You can also find monthly reading trackers and a super-cute coffee bookmark. This small biz is located in, you guessed it, England! BTW, their Instagram account is gorgeous and totally worth a follow.

Promising review: "This bookmark is just so well done on every level! The artwork is beautiful, and the quality is gorgeous. It's such a clever idea, and there are enough 'books' pictured to last a whole year. I will be looking for other items from this artist!" — Elaine
Femfetti / Etsy
A crewneck sweatshirt for folks who, like me, have a rather ghoulish sense of humor
I love this sweatshirt! I've had it for years and still tend to wear it even when it's nowhere near Halloween. It's great quality and super comfortable! It's available in unisex sizes S–5XL.

Promising review: "I LOVE this hoodie. It looks just like the photo and it’s so soft. If you’re thinking about buying this – do it!!! You won’t regret it." — Autumn

A set of three self-watering terracotta mushroom bulbs
You're sure to appreciate the help from these cottagecore cuties, especially when colder seasons change up your plants' watering schedule.

Promising review:
"I purchased these as a gift for my sister who has over 70 plants in her possession (I know...she's obsessed) and she loves them. They help her cut down on the amount of time spent watering all her plants. She uses them in the heavy drinkers that require frequent watering. I am going to purchase some for myself because I think they are so cute and useful! I really like that they are terra-cotta and can be refilled by simply adding more water — no need to take them out, clean the stem of dirt, etc. like the typical self-watering glass bulbs. In addition, they were actually larger than I had expected. Great product!" — Beetle
A weighted blanket with a unique knitted pattern that creates the perfect balance of breathability and heavy comfort
This thing is gorgeous and it's gonna help you feel calm when the holiday season has you feeling frazzled. It's available in three sizes and nine colors.

Promising review:
"Previous weighted blankets I've tried were too hot to use in warmer weather and made it difficult to move in my sleep, which I do. The wide open knit of the Tree Napper provides excellent airflow and flexes to allow me freedom of movement without sacrificing the weight of the blanket itself. I love it." —Meredith B.

A faux-wood tea light candleholder you "wood" be sorry to miss out on
Promising review: "We do not use our fireplace and we were tired of the bare look. We decided to give the fireplace area a little glam and this piece looks amazing in it. We are using LED tea lights until we purchase some tea light candles in glass holders. The LED lights still look great though, and we LOVE it!" — TM
A set of magnetic glass spice jars for anyone who believes organization is the spice of life
Promising review: "I am in love with my magnetic spice jars! I recently moved to a small apartment and don't have the counter or wall space to store spices or a spice rack, so magnetic jars it was! I love how these have a decorative feel while providing a secure way to store the spices. Unlike other magnetic spice jars I feel that these add an extra flair to displaying your assorted spices." — rae.m.wri

The book is full of prompts like "People I Can Talk To" and "My Comfort Objects," making it both soothing and helpful.

Promising review: "I’m currently on list seven and I am loving this as a supplement to my normal journaling practice.

A classic Carhartt watch cap in 35 colors to keep your head warm without any frills
Promising review: "I bought this in charcoal and lost it on a trip, so I bought the exact color again because I missed it so much. Now I'm back to buy it in more colors. It is thick (because it's a watch cap) but I wear it year round in Dallas or Chicago. The fit is snug to the point that I can sling it back without it falling off and it fits over my afro or straight hair the same and doesn't lose is stretch after washing. This is my favorite hat." — CE

A pair of cheesecloth table runners to transform your dining room with an autumnal touch

A knit skirt so your lower half doesn't get jealous now that sweater weather is in full swing
It's available in sizes S–XL and in 13 styles.

Promising reviews:
"Love this skirt so much, I bought it in four colors. All are true to the photo. The slit is perfect, making it easy to walk, but not too high. I wear the slit in the back. On one of the skirts the tag was on the wrong side and the other three it was where the slit was, so I know you can wear it either way. The material is the perfect thickness for all year and is not see-through. These are a great staple to have." —Lauren Winn

"Love the fit of this skirt! Material is soft and stretchy and the ribbed pattern is very cute. The color is beautiful as well." —Amylia Coover
A pack of 24 retro Halloween postcards that'll give you an excuse to send your loved ones some snail mail
I love decorating for the holidays but I try to keep things thrifty. These cards were just what I was looking for! I use them as decor. They fill a lot of space when on display, without taking up basically any storage space during the rest of the year.

Promising review: "These are quite beautiful and I almost don't want to send them out because I like them so much. They are a very classic style so if you're looking for scary cards these may not be what you're looking for. Since they are reprints of old vintage styles, some of them are not as crisp. The photos are mostly drawn in that style to begin with so it's not something that detracts from them in the slightest. Overall they are worth the money and I'd definitely buy them again." — Jama Lama
A pair of Chelsea ankle boots with a lug-sole design and chunky block heel
If you have Amazon Prime Wardrobe, you can try these out before you buy them! They're available in shoe sizes 5–11 and in 19 colors.

Promising reviews: "Fit great, looks cute. Even wore them on a few-mile walk and didn’t get blisters" —Laurence Grante III

"These boots fit perfectly. The quality is great so far and they are super comfy. GET these for fall!!" —Bailey Earp
A burgundy wreath that'll look berry lovely on your door
Promising review: "This wreath is an eye-catching combination of fall elements. It fits my door and you can spread the branches out even further for bigger doors. It’s a perfect decoration piece for front door, wall, or even windows. It doesn’t come with a hook so I used my previous hook to hang it. Not a deal breaker for me but that’s something to keep in mind. Hanging it on a hook is easy. Highly recommended!" —Eileen Ulick
Olive & Cocoa
A pair of witches, Mini Maddie and Anjelica
I have Maddie and Anjelica at my house! Olive & Cocoa makes heirloom-quality decor that's worth keeping around for generations. I've spent the last few years collecting pieces from this shop to grow my Halloween collection — every piece is something special.

Promising review: "Maddie is just beautiful. I am enjoying her company and I'm thinking I will keep her out even after Halloween. She is beautifully made and has such a cute face. Shipping was quick – it must have been with the help of her broom." — Marcella

Wax Buffalo
An autumn-scented candle from Wax Buffalo
Wax Buffalo is a Lincoln, Nebraska-based small business founded in 2014 offering hand-poured soy candles. I am a not-so-casual candle collector and even though I *tried* to wait until it was cold outside to get my candles out...I couldn't. If you love the fall like I do, you'll love having this candle in your home.
A cinnamon broom for making your home smell like the cozy cottage you want it to become
I've had this delightfully witchy cinnamon broom for a couple of years now. It moved with me from an apartment in Brooklyn to a home from 1784 in Connecticut, where it is now proudly displayed all year long. It smelled amazing when I got it, and it continues to be a great way to infuse a room with aroma by adding essential oils to the bristles. I love love it!

Promising review: "Grab the broom! My broom arrived on time with the delightful smell of cinnamon that lit up the whole room. This product is great quality with decent sizing. The smell will fade within a week or so, just add a couple of drops of cinnamon oil to the broom to bring the smell back to life." — Amesha Ryan

A bag of citrus harvest potpourri to make your home smell like freshly brewed wassail every dang day
Promising review: "This is the best potpourri I've ever had! 10 out of 10. There are no giant fillers and plenty of orange slices. The scent is fantastic. It came with an extra bottle of oil. The photo doesn’t do it justice. I love it so much I’m buying the Christmas one after posting this review. Awesome company. I love it." — Franny
A gorgeous Moroccan-style amber glass lantern that'll look rustic and spooky next to all your Halloween decor
You can also get a handful of flameless tea candles.

Promising review: "Simply the most gorgeous Moroccan lantern you can purchase on Amazon. If you're looking for a lighting fixture that brings out the glow of amber ambiance, this would be the perfect purchase. With a simple tea light or a 6-inch battery-operated candle, it provides enough lightning that can only be described as spiritually enchanting. The dark amber color has a mystique aura that adds a subtle warmth in any room of the house. It's well-constructed and made of metal and thick solid glass, including a door opener for your flameless light source." — Izzy
