I’d bet you’d be surprised to find out that nine of the ten most common birthdays are in September! Why? Well, some say it’s because winter is for lovers (wink, wink). I’d bet you’d be even more surprised to find that fall babies are more likely to see their 100th birthday. So, what we’re telling you without really telling you is that fall birthdays are a blessing.

As the autumnal foliage season starts in September and carries through to the end of November, there are lots of opportunities for gift giving before the holidays. If you’ve got loads of friends who celebrate in those months, too, we’ve got several amazing gift ideas.

You’ll surely FALL in love with these ideas...see what we did there?!

Lit Candle

This Homesick Pumpkin Picking Candle will bring the sensations of the pumpkin patch to your home. It’s made from a natural soy wax blend and premium cotton wicks. You’ll love the way the warm notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, Tonka bean, and sugar blend and warm your home and spirit.

Flowers are beautiful, but they aren’t forever. Consider gifting the Williams-Sonoma Harvest Bloom Apron so they can be. It’s made of a durable cotton-twill and has sturdy pockets for holding recipe cards and kitchen tools. The adjustable D-ring at the neck ensures it’s one-size-fits-all. Best of all? It’s machine washable and you can monogram it!

The fall winds can be brisk, so you can never go wrong gifting a chunky, cozy throw. This one from Pottery Barn is large enough to get lost in. We love the Adobe color for a fall birthday. And if the idea of gifting a throw doesn’t spark joy, consider a timeless blanket scarf like this mixed plaid scarf with fun tassels from ASOS.

Who can say no to a waffle? This mini pumpkin waffle makeradds a little fun and whimsy to the season. Double the fun by adding some gourmet syrup. This Butternut Mountain Farm Maple Syrup gift set includes three delicious options. Just like wine, some syrups have specific uses. The Golden Delicate in the kit is for pancakes and waffles. The Amber Rich is for cooking and sweetening drinks. The Dark Robust is for glazing and baking. Creating in the kitchen has never been more fun - or delicious!

Perfect for apple picking trips and weekending in the mountains, this weekender bag is under $100 and comes in four colors (including plaid)! It even has a zipper-pocket on the back that can be used as a trolly sleeve that fits over the handle of your rolling luggage.

We hope these ideas are helpful and spark an idea for that special birthday present this fall. Do you have a fall birthday? What kinds of gifts do you love best? Share some ideas in the comments, please!
