Pumpkin Spice All the Things This Fall with These Cozy Ideas

Some people scorn the pumpkin-spice vibe, but if that’s your favorite part of fall, we’re here to help you indulge!

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Long before pumpkin spice was a lifestyle, it was just a flavor. With pumpkin spice lattes screaming at you from every corner, why not try something different? Start your morning with a modified version of your favorite pancakes!

You can use any recipe you want and make them as fluffy or as thin as you usually do. The only difference is the spice. Include a generous amount of pumpkin spice—don’t sell yourself short! You can also sprinkle it on whipped cream or infuse your syrup with it.

You can also add pumpkin flavor to your batter with some pumpkin puree and make the fluffiest pancakes your breakfast has ever seen.

The aroma alone will be enough to transport you to your cozy place!

Pumpkin Spice Candles

Lighting a bunch of pumpkin spice scented candles around your home is always a good way to smell your favorite scent everywhere. When you find the candles you like most, get enough to set them in all your favorite spots.

As tempting as it might be to buy a bazillion different fall scents, burning high-quality candles from the same company with the same scent throughout your home creates a unified aroma.

You also won’t have to worry about scents melding weirdly or a bunch of mixed scents giving you a headache. You can pumpkin-spice-it-up with the delicious smelling Pumpkin Spice No. 03 from Sweet Water Decor.

Pumpkin Spice Spa

If you enjoy at-home spa treatments, draw yourself a bubble bath and get a variety of pumpkin spice scented bath bombs, body butters, lotions, and other spa products. Then, enjoy an evening of pumpkin spice Zen.

Play some relaxing music, dim the lights, light a few candles, and then soak the stress away. Enjoy a warm latte afterward in your robe and slippers.

Pumpkin Spice Air Freshener

Want your car to smell heavenly? Get yourself a pumpkin spice air freshener. It’ll put a smile on your face as soon as you start driving and make being stuck in traffic far more pleasant.

You can also put one in your foyer or even your closet, so your clothing smells incredible every time you get dressed.

If you’re not a coffee drinker, but the Starbucks ads for its pumpkin spice latte make your mouth water, try some pumpkin spice tea! Then, you can enjoy this wonderful flavor sans coffee beans.

You can also simply add pumpkin spice to any tea if you’d rather enjoy your usual favorites with a delicious new twist. And if you really want some foam, froth some milk to top it off. Pumpkin spice London fog? Absolutely!

Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm

Colder weather got you reaching for the lip balm? Why not make it pumpkin spice? It’ll take your lip balm experience to a whole new level!

This limited edition pack will help you keep that delicious taste and scent with you all day long.

Pumpkin Spice Colored Clothes

It’s not all about scent and taste. As soon as summer ends, even our clothing moves to darker jewel and earth tones, creating an overall cozier feel.

This autumn, bring some pumpkin spice to your wardrobe with dark oranges and browns. Stick to the basics and complement them with other fall colors, like gray, snow-white, and black. Or, grab a statement piece, like a long jacket and boots.

Pumpkin Spice Almonds

Coating nuts and seeds in new spices can also refresh your snacks! Ditch the sea salt and cayenne for pumpkin spice and maple syrup. Then, pop them in the oven for 10 minutes or so (keep an eye on them so they don’t burn).

Add them to your granola, sprinkle them on top of your salad, or just have them as a snack while you enjoy a pumpkin spice latte.

These ideas will help you coat everything in pumpkin spice and get in the autumn spirit!
