5 Essential Pumpkin Items for Your Home

From candles to desserts to decor, it’s pumpkin’s world and we’re just living in it.

Pumpkin mania has arrived. Everywhere you turn there’s more pumpkin-related items to be seen. How do you know which ones are essential and which ones can be ignored? Easy. I’ll tell you which ones. Do you doubt a 35 year old, white male from Jersey doesn’t know what are the most important pumpkin items to reside in the place you call home? What gives me this right? Well, I was born on Halloween…that’s about it, so proceed with that in mind.

Besides that, being married to woman who’s admiration for all things fall and pumpkin for the past 12 years has given me some additional insight. Here you go:

Spiced Pumpkin Candle from Yankee Candle


Sure you can get a pumpkin spice candle from just about anywhere, but there’s only one place to get the best. Light this baby up and your home will smell like fall and dessert for the entire month. Don’t be cheap. Get the big one.

Pumpkin Wreath


Don’t buy your wreath at KMart. Look for a nice wreath that’s more than just a plastic pumpkin sign you could get at any party store. It adds a touch of class to your front door while still getting in the festive autumnal spirit. There are a tons of options at Etsy.com including the one above (although it’s a little pricey).

Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream


It’s not decor, but it’s one of the most beautiful things you can have in your home this fall. The Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream from Ben & Jerry’s is no trick, but certainly a treat. Better buy more than one.

Glow in the Dark Pumpkin Teeth


Anybody can make a Jack-O-Lantern. Set yours apart from the others on your street by adding a set of glow in the dark teeth. Perfect for frightening your children or in-laws. And they’re only $6 for a three pack.

Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks


You can find a recipe for it online. You can buy it for your Keurig. Or you could just go straight to the source and get it from Starbucks. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is so big it even has its own Twitter handle @TheRealPSL.

BONUS: Pumpkin Costume


For those with children, it’s required that you dress them up as a pumpkin at least once in their life. Makes for great photo sharing before their prom or at their rehearsal dinner.
