The leaves are changing color, the air is crisping, the smell of pumpkin spice is wafting from every coffee shop doorway down the street . You know what this means — the season is finally upon us! The autumnal equinox was last Wednesday, marking September 22 the very first day of fall.

We all have folks in our lives completely smitten with fall — friends and family obsessed with leaf peeping, apple picking, pumpkin carving, and other seasonal festivities. They’ve baked us pies, knitted us sweaters, sent us thoughtful care packages; why not take the time to indulge these fall fans with a gift this year? From the cutest (and most comprehensive!) fall gift basket ideas to cozy fall clothes and decor, we have a bevy of seasonal gifts for you to choose from.
