How does one spell comfort? F-A-L-L!

The weather’s turned colder, leaves have changed colour and the air smells better — you know what this means: fall’s here!

"It's Fall Y'all"

You may be too old to go trick-or-treating, or too busy to go apple picking, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the season. Fall’s all about comfort, nature and great food! So, to help you get right into the fall feels, we’ve compiled a list of comfort items that’ll help you make this fall your most perfect season yet.

Here’s what you’ll need:

List of fall items

1. Comfy clothes

We don’t know about you, but we sure are more than ready to bid goodbye to our summer closet.

It’s time for the ultimate comfy wear: sweaters, scarves, socks, boots — the whole nine yards! Ugh, don’t you just love it?

Wrap yourself up and prepare to fall for this cozy season.

2. Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Pro tip: Skip the lines and save some money by making the drink at home with pumpkin pie sauce!

3. All things pie

Nothing says fall like the smell of fresh pie engulfing the house. Apple, cinnamon, pumpkin — the choices are mouth-watering!

Get together with your friends and bake the perfect pie to welcome the season. However, when you do, be sure to follow your region’s COVID-19 guidelines for indoor gatherings.

4. Scented candles
