Crisp autumn days are here! Kind of. Depending on where you live, “sweater weather” could still be a ways away, leaving you feeling like hayrides, pumpkin patches, and the holidays may never arrive. So if you’re struggling to get into the swing of the new season, here are a few things that will light your autumnal fires.
1. The Coziest Blanket on Earth
The best way to bring on fall feelings? Bundle up in a seriously soft blanket like this throw from Holy Lamb Organics. Made in a small, family-owned mill with sustainably-produced natural wool, this blanket is all things warm and fuzzy. Wrap yourself up like the fall baby you are and get your fall on, baby.
2. The Perfect Fall Book
Once you’re all curled up in that fluffy wool blanket, you’ll need something to do! Grab one of the most anticipated books of the season and get lost in the pages. In the mood for something more season-specific? How about one of the all-time greatest thrillers ever written? We love a good spooky story.
3. The Sweet Smell of Chai
Black tea, cardamom and vanilla swirl together into one fantastic fall scent – chai. Whether you wear it as a deodorant or one of our new lotion bars, the smell of chai is guaranteed to get you in the mood for all things fall. Prefer to drink your chai rather than wear it? Try this delicious Paleo chai tea recipe!
4. A Seasonal Mug
You’ll need something to pour your fall beverage of choice into, of course! We love our coffee here at P3, so we’ll be breaking these out in honor of fall.
5. The Ultimate Fall Food
Fall means it’s finally time to break out the slow cooker and whip up some chili! This Paleo chili recipe is quick, easy, and guaranteed to be a hit with the whole family. Have a favorite fall recipe? Share it in the comments below.
6. Fall Simmer Pot
The fastest way to make your house feel more autumnal is to make it smell that way. But with dangerous chemicals lurking in synthetic fragrance and scented candles, it’s best to keep it all-natural with a simmer pot recipe like this one:
- Orange peels
- Cinnamon sticks
- Vanilla extract
- Boil a small pot of water
- Reduce to a simmer, then add ingredients
- Add water about every half hour or as needed to make sure nothing burns
- Simmer for as long as you like
- Enjoy the cozy smell of fall!
7. Fuzzy Socks
We don’t know about you, but our tootsies are the first things to get cold when fall temperatures start to drop. Slip into some fun, festive socks and kick your feet up – you’ll be cozy in no time.
8. The Warm & Fuzzies
Surrounding yourself with warm and fuzzy things is wonderful, but the best way to celebrate fall is by helping others. Give back to your community and neighbors; those warm and fuzzy feelings are what this season is all about!
