37 Outdoor Items Everyone Could Use for Fall | 22 Words
Amazon

I don't know what fall means to you, but in Florida, it means six more weeks of summer. I kid, I kid. For most of us, fall represents a magical time of year when football takes center stage, the days grow cooler and everything gets the pumpkin spice treatment. It also means it's time to spend more time outside, thanks to less humidity, that soft fall breeze, and shorter days. That also means there's ample opportunity to shop for a new season, which is where this list comes in. I've found 37 outdoor items that everyone could use for fall — from cleaning up the yard to enjoying your patio space.

We hope you find these products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We are a participant in the Amazon affiliate program, and Brainjolt may receive a share of sales from links on this page. Prices on Amazon fluctuate so anything mentioned below might change as soon we publish it!

These products include things like tools to make it easier to get rid of those pesky leaves, dreamy lanterns to light up the night, and even some fall decor to get you in the apple-pumpkin-football-candy-corn frame of mind. I bought No. 6 for myself! No. 12 is a must-have and No. 27 is borderline genius — I only wish I had thought of it first. Get your fall on, y'all, and start with shopping!

Leaf Me Alone

Amazon

Leaves are a fall problem that must be dealt with. Yards, gutters ... they're everywhere. This pop-up leaf collector and lawn bag are like having an extra set of hands to help you out, even if your real "helpers" are inside watching the big game. It can be used as a chute (like pictured) or laid flat on the ground with a wide-mouth funnel and a handle for moving the bag around.

Get A Load Of These Glass Jars

Amazon

There's nothing like a little soft glow when you're hanging outside on the porch or patio to give you a cozy, autumnal feel. These solar mercury glass jars are finished in a speckled bronze coating that enhances the reflection, softens the light, and gives a distressed vintage look. These jars include white LED lights, are weather- and waterproof, and are a steal at just $16.

You Can Never Have Too Many Pillows

Amazon

Has anyone ever told you that you have too many pillows? Nonsense, you don't need that kind of negativity in your life. These fall-themed pillow covers deliver a seasonal vibe in muted shades of orange, red, gold, and blue. Available in two sizes, these come minus the pillow inserts, which you can buy here. Hidden zippers keep the covers in place while delivering a finished appearance.

No Bugging

Amazon

There's only one downside to spending more time outside: Bugs. Those little critters won't leave you alone, whether it's in the heat of summer or the cool autumn days ahead. This portable solar insect killer uses no air pollutants or fuel replacements compared to standard oil-burning torches and relies on a blue UV LED to help attract unwanted flying insects.

Welcome Them With Seasonal Decor

Amazon

If you're a people person, you'll appreciate this autumn welcome sign with fall leaves to greet folks who turn up at your door. (If you're not a people person, just skip on ahead to No. 6.) Standing 48 inches tall, this sign is a perfect addition to your front door area or porch and can be dressed up with additional fall decors like pumpkins or scarecrows. A distressed, farmhouse-inspired finish adds timeless sophistication.

Hey There, Pumpkin

Amazon

This cutie is on its way to my house as I type this! Emblazoned with gourds and the words "Hey there, pumpkin," this fall doormat is a subtle way to incorporate some autumnal vibes without going overboard. This link also features different mat styles including leaves, gnomes, and even leopard print. At less than $12, you won't find a better deal anywhere.

Raise The Rake

Amazon

Here we are back to discussing yard work, but it's a fact of life particularly when trees start losing their leaves creating a bed of them all around your property. This 12-tine leaf rack is a smart addition to your yard work arsenal with a length that can be adjusted from 43 to 57 inches. The tine placement helps keep leaves from getting stuck and the whole kit also includes a dustpan-like garden bag and a pair of gloves.

Don't Blow It

Amazon

I've never used a leaf blower, but I know I'd be just darling at it. The LeafPro universal leaf collection system works with all major leaf blowers and vacuum brands by attaching, at one end, to your blower, and attaching, at the other end, to a standard waste container. The cinch-tight drawstring forms a seal for a solid, consistent flow of air and expands for 16 feet of reach.

An Unbreakable Bond

Amazon

If you're hesitant to take your "good wine glasses" outside for fear of them breaking, you need these unbreakable stemless wine glasses. Available in a set of four and cleverly dubbed, "Wine Outside," these "glasses" are actually made from shatterproof Tritan plastic that won't stain, fade or get cloudy, even after going through the dishwasher. Each glass has a weighted bottom, too, to prevent tipping.

Tiki + Tunes = TikiTunes

Amazon

I love multipurpose gadgets. This water- and dust-resistant TikiTunes device has both a flickering ambient light component and a Bluetooth speaker for playing your favorite tunes. Small enough to fit in your hand, it'll take up very little room on a patio table and has a six-hour window of playtime for music. Grab two for a true stereo sound up to 30 feet apart.

From Dusk To Dawn

Amazon

Until now, just about all of the dusk-to-dawn fixtures I've seen looked commercial and, well, downright ugly. These dusk-to-dawn wall sconces have a modern vibe and turn on and off without any involvement from you. Made of aluminum, these sconces are weather-resistant and won't rust or corrode. The open bottom design allows you to change bulbs quickly and easily.

Stick It To Them

Amazon

Hanging outside in cooler weather almost inherently leads to a bonfire, which almost assuredly leads to s'mores. These extendable roasting sticks are great for roasting marshmallows and even hotdogs over an open flame. Each stick has two forks for double the roasting fun and its own color so there's no worry about sharing a stick with someone else. The sticks also are extendable up to 34 inches.

Play With Fire

Amazon

I mean, if you're going to buy roasting sticks, you should probably have a fire pit. This one on Amazon is a killer buy at just 40 bucks and has features you might expect on pricier models including a steel mesh screen and a poker. The fire pit itself boasts a compact size that'll fit anywhere or go anywhere and a heat-resistant coating so it'll look good for years to come.

Add Backyard Fun

Amazon

You can't just sit around all the time, can you? (Don't answer that.) This portable cornhole toss game is perfect for backyards or tailgates with lightweight PVC construction, eight bean bags, and a travel carrying case. You can assemble both targets in less than 60 seconds and be up and running for your first game in no time. There is football, and USA-themed options, too.

Make A Statement With Buffalo Plaid

Amazon

I don't know who claimed Buffalo plaid for the fall season, but I'm not mad about it. This two-tone black-and-white plaid goes with everything — or, rather, everything goes with it. This Buffalo plaid comes in the form of a 27-by-43 handwoven area rug that can be used indoors or out. Dressed up or dressed down, it's the perfect accessory for fall, winter, and beyond.

The Best Outdoor Blanket

Amazon

There's not much I enjoy more than throwing a blanket over myself when there's a chill in the air. This large fleece blanket is waterproof, windproof, and sand proof and includes a "stuff sack" that you can tote the blanket into the beach, the football game, or even the backyard. Grab it in a variety of go-with-anything colors, from black to gray to red.

Flickering, Flameless Fun

Amazon

Mood lighting? Mood lighting. These flickering flameless candles are waterproof and battery-operated with a remote control that lets you change the timer, the lighting mode, and the light intensity. This set includes three candles of varying heights, with water-resistant features so you can use them outside or inside. Buy two sets to boost the ambiance even more.

Shear Enjoyment

Amazon

With the temperature dropping from the center of Hades to Hades' entryway, early fall is a good time to do some pruning of your trees, roses, annuals, and more. These pruning shears are super sturdy with ergonomically designed non-slip handles that are strong, lightweight, and comfortable. The blade itself is made from high carbon steel for precise cuts. This is an Amazon bestseller!

Your Garbage Guard

Amazon

Nothing kills your outdoor fun like pests. We've already touched on this. The only thing worse is pests swarming your trash can. This garage guard pest strip from Terro works to chase flying critters away from your cans, preventing infestations. These pest strips attach easily with adhesive backing and last up to four months each. No more bugs following you inside either.

Shovel It In

Amazon

I'd never really thought about shovels and how versatile they either are or aren't — until I stumbled onto this entrenching tool. Folded, this shovel is not much larger than the palm of your hand. Expanded, it has superb versatility with a military shovel or hunting shovel with a wood saw edge and a rotating spade blade to use as a pick or hoe. A carrying case makes it easy to transport.

Buy Grampa's Weeder

Amazon

When a tool has been around since 1913, you know there's something good there. This weed puller tool with the long handle — dubbed Grampa's Weeder — is great at getting rid of the bad stuff (weeds) without bending, pulling, or kneeling. The steel four-claw design is complemented by a 45-inch bamboo handle. The best part is that you can weed without harsh chemicals, which is great if you have little ones or pets.

Outdoor Odor Eliminator

Amazon / Howard Lovely

No matter how much you love Fido, no one wants to sit outside and smell his, ahem, business. This yard odor eliminator from NaturVet eliminates stool and urine odors from grass, plants, shrubs, patios, patio furniture, kennels, dog runs, swing sets, fences, and more. The ready-to-use nozzle and bottle attach easily to your existing garden hose for maximum coverage.

Take It On A Tray

Amazon

You're spending more time outdoors — great! But, how are you going to get all of the essentials out there with you? This large wooden serving tray is like having your own wait staff on hand in your home, allowing you to transport dishes, drinks, and more from the kitchen to wherever you're hanging out. It's made of light wood that's moisture-proof, insect-proof, and eco-friendly.

The Perfect Outdoor Companion

Amazon

How do you keep everyone's drinks separated when they all look the same? These multicolored yard drink holder stakes offer the perfect solution for distinguishing everyone's drink while giving you extra places for stashing them out of the way. This set of four sells for right around $30, has a triangular steel foot for easy insertion into the ground and assembles from two pieces for use at home or on the go.

Go Farmhouse Chic

Amazon / Yihu ZHAI

Show your thankfulness the entire fall season with these galvanized metal farmhouse containers that read, "Give thanks with a grateful heart." One reviewer said, "I love it. It's much bigger than many others at a comparable price. I'm more than satisfied with my purchase. I only wish I found it sooner." Stuff it with flowers for a great addition to your front porch, balcony, or back patio.

Put Up Some Privacy

Amazon

Who doesn't want a bit of added privacy when you're trying to unwind? Sometimes, it's not always possible, whether you live in an apartment or a home with nearby, nosy neighbors. This faux ivy privacy fencing is a solid choice for giving yourself a bit more personal time, with leaves that won't fall off and installation that requires only zip ties or rope.

One Scoop Or Two?

Amazon

​These ReLeaf leaf scoops look like what I imagine the Incredible Hulk would look like if he were doing yard work. (You can't unsee it now, can you?) They're super handy (no pun intended) because they get the job done fast, letting you grab grass or leaves wet or dry and rake with minimal fuss or spills. They'll also protect you from thorns that might be hiding in your brush pile.

Go For GoBar

Amazon

Have a bar, will travel? There are unlimited uses for this portable high-top party bar, from giving you an "official" mixology station in your backyard to offering a place for extra goodies if you're tailgating. This is a bit out of our usual price range at $64, but it's a steal with three interchangeable skirts, hidden storage shelves, and a bonus carrying case.

Cushion This Fall

Amazon

The easiest way to change up the look of your outdoor furniture — whether periodically or seasonally — is with the addition of chairs cushions like this pair for a bistro set. These round seat cushions are UV, water, stain, and fade-resistant and feature a warm palette of colors perfect for autumn. String ties keep the cushions firmly attached to your chairs.

Throw A Log On

Amazon

Chilly days mean crackling fires and I am 100% here for it. This log rack bin stores your haul in a stylish way with a black powder-coated finish and detailed scrollwork. The photo above shows the rack indoors, but it also works outside for storing, drying, or displaying firewood on your porch, deck, under eaves, and patio. It's a small storage solution for less than $40.

Light Up Your Umbrella

Amazon

If you have outdoor space, you probably already have a patio umbrella. This inexpensive patio umbrella light fits on the existing umbrella pole and offers three levels of light brightness that — literally — sheds light on the situation. Equipped with 28 LED bulbs, this umbrella light clamps onto an umbrella pole with no need for additional tools. Now you can see your food or your company.

Set A Timer

Amazon

Give yourself a "time" out with this compact outdoor 24-hour timer that can be programmed for anything you need. These types of timers work wonderfully with exterior lights, Christmas decor, sprinklers, and more. These are programmable in 15-minute intervals with 48 setting options in a 24-hour period for a total of 48 settings per day. It's a great add-on for $14.

Stack Your Tools In This Organizer

Amazon

All of these garden tools you're buying are going to need somewhere to sit when you're not using them. This garden tool organizer is the perfect fit for a shed or garage with room for upward of 40 tools. This tool organizer goes one step further, though, by incorporating wheels so you can move it easily from one location to another. Transport all your tools in one trip!

Gloves Or Wolverine?

Amazon

When I first saw these garden genie gloves I was like, "Wolverine? Is that you?" These waterproof gloves have four built-in plastic claws on each hand, making it simpler to dig and plant without hand tools while you're gardening. Nylon knitting makes these breathable while natural latex rubber coating makes them waterproof, puncture-resistant, and easy to clean.

Keep It Covered

Amazon

As the fall season winds down, it'll be time to safeguard your patio furniture and other outdoor features from harsh winter weather. These patio furniture covers feature a universal design that fits outdoor sectional furniture sets and rectangular table and chair sets. Available in black or gray, they're durable and water-resistant; strap buckles keep them from blowing away in windy conditions.

Hide It All In This Deck Box

Amazon

I love being able to hide my stuff. I don't mean secrets and dirty laundry, I mean stuff like outdoor pillows, pool toys, sports equipment, and more. This 22-gallon small deck box won't take up a ton of room but will give you a ton of space for patio, deck, yard, porch, garage, and shed storage. This one has added greatness with a built-in seat on top, providing an additional place for a company to perch.

Pump(kin) It Up

Amazon

I couldn't write a list about fall must-haves without including pumpkins. This 12-piece set of artificial pumpkins is great because it's seasonal in color, but not Halloween-specific in design so you can use it from the first day the temperature drops until Christmas. You'll get multiple pieces of the black and white and orange and white checkered pumpkins and several of the white ones, which can be painted or customized to your liking.
