Out of all the seasons, fall embodies the idea of change. Change is exemplified during this time through leaves changing colours and eventually falling off trees.
It brings shorter and colder days that remind you to be grateful for everything lost during the transition into fall and embrace the present moment more. After all, there is no better present than the present.
However, if you’re looking for more tangible, non-abstract fall presents, you can find a few gift ideas here.
A Warm Blanket
From the scorching weather of summer, fall eases everyone into cooler temperatures. When waking up early in the morning, many feel the shift from being greeted by crisp, cold air. The immediate response for most is to reach for their blankets and wrap themselves in them to avoid the morning chill and conserve body heat. The need for warmth during this time gives fall the reputation for cosiness. And, what’s cosier than getting a nice, warm blanket? If you know someone who loves autumn but is prone to getting chilly, you should gift them with a blanket. It might seem like a simple and boring gift. But, it is a quality gift if you know what to get. For instance, you can buy them a heated blanket. It allows them to control the heat and will match their comfort level. Once you find a blanket that exudes absolute comfort and warmth, they’ll appreciate it during those cold fall days.
A Noteworthy Notebook
Fall has been known as a time for reflection and introspection. It provides the right atmosphere to quiet your mind and makes it easier to focus on more solitary activities. That’s why fall is the season for writers. Best exemplified by National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) during the middle of fall in November. In which case, why not make writing easier for the writer in your life with a notebook? It will make it easier for them to jot down their ideas and perfect for any references during their writing process. A notebook is also a great gift if they’re not an aspiring writer but simply like to practice journaling for self-care. You can give them an aesthetically-pleasing notebook that suits their taste, making it easier to write down anything they’re grateful for inside. In this case, they would certainly be grateful for the beautiful notebook you gave them!
A Binge-Worthy Book
Another great solitary activity that suits fall perfectly is reading. If the person you know is more of a reader than a writer, your best bet would be to find them a book they will love. Getting the right book is imperative to ensure you get them a great gift instead of a bad one. You might wonder how to go about it, so you don’t risk getting them a lousy book. The best way you can approach it is by seeing what titles they currently have. See what kind of genres or authors they’re reading – it can give you a good idea of their tastes. If you’re lucky to know their Goodreads list, it can show you the books they have wanted to read. In this way, you can certainly ensure what book they will love. Plus, if they enjoy reading horror or thriller books, now would be the best time to gift them. After all, it will make for a great spooky read since Halloween is during fall.
A Luxurious Warm Brew
With the colder weather, there is nothing like warming yourself up with a cup of your favourite brew. In which case, why not give a high-quality one that will be a step up from the usual? Whether it be tea or coffee, you can certainly find various flavours and blends that suit their tastes. Or, if they’re adventurous, you can provide them multiple types to explore and try. You can inadvertently help them find a new favourite brew! Beyond that, you can also include accessories associated with their favourite brew. For instance, you can get a nice French press if they like coffee. You can get them a lovely tea set if they’re a tea lover. However, there is nothing like adding a mug that works for both a coffee and tea lover.
A Fall-Themed Gift Basket
You may have read this list and felt you wanted to give more. In what way can you do so? You can easily do so with gift baskets! Ironically enough, you could probably add most of what’s listed into a fall-themed gift basket. It’s like giving multiple gifts in one – which makes it great! You can certainly find ways to decorate the gift basket to fit the autumn aesthetic. Not only that, but you can also include some yummy treats inside! The perfect fall goodies are usually chocolate. But, your best bet is always to fill it up with their absolute favourite treats. Plus, it doesn’t have to be sweet delights – you can put some savoury snacks in there.
Hopefully, this gave you some good fall-inspired gift ideas that the autumn-obsessed person in your life loves and appreciates!
