It’s that time of year, you can smell it in the air…that’s right, it’s time for EVERYTHING pumpkin spice.
And while just the words “pumpkin spice” are fodder for countless internet memes and eye rolls, we all have those friends who genuinely and passionately looove their PSL and all things pumpkin spice.
So in honor of my college roomie and all of the other PSL (that’s pumpkin spice latte, if you’ve been living under a rock 😉 ) fanatics out there, I am dedicating this list of gift ideas to Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice. These are not gag gifts to mock your PSL-loving friends. There is nary a pumpkin pie spice pringle, pumpkin spice breath freshener, or pumpkin spiced pumpkin seed (clever Trader Joes, clever) on this list.
I give you simply, pumpkin spice awesomeness to delight and surprise your pumpkin spice loved ones.
9 Gift Ideas That Are Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice
1. Pumpkin Body Scrub
Let’s start with a little pumpkin pampering. Lani at Simple Sugars has a passion for creating all-natural skincare products with the highest quality ingredients. This featured autumn scent is not just loaded with pumpkin antioxidants, it will leave your skin “glowing brighter than a jack-o-lantern on Halloween”!
2. Pumpkin Spice Creamed Honey
Honey is such a universal sweet treat and this is pure raw honey blended with organic pumpkin and spices. You can add it to your coffee for a luxurious take on PSL, spread it on toast, drizzle on a sweet potato (yum!!) or even glaze a ham. You can pumpkin spice your whole pantry 😉
Available from Abe’s Market: Vintage Bee Pumpkin Spice Creamed Honey
3. Pumpkin Porter Ale Candle
There are no shortage of pumpkin spice candles available in stores, but those just don’t compare to the sense evoking awesomeness of true artisans like Melissa at 1820 House Candle Company.
The Pumpkin Porter Ale candle is a combination of “heirloom pumpkins, cardamom and a bit of boozy spice.”
Available from 1820 House Candle Company: No. 19 Pumpkin Porter Ale
4. Pumpkin Whiskey Men’s Aftershave
First of all, can I just say how much I love this packaging! If Andy used aftershave I’d buy this just for how it would class up our bathroom 🙂
Inside the bottle is where the real magic lives. Jenni at the Nevermore Body Company creates this aftershave with fabulous skin pampering ingredients like witch hazel and green tea extract, finishing it with the scent of sweet pumpkin and whiskey.
Available from Etsy: Jack O Lantern Pumpkin Whiskey Aftershave
5. Pumpkin Hot Sauce
Sgt. Pepper puts some real spice into their love of Pumpkin Spice. This sweet and spicy hot sauce is a blend of chipotle peppers and pumpkin puree. Pour it over some cream cheese or baked brie and stand back when the PSL fanatics come running.
Available from The Carolina Sauce Company: Sgt. Pepper’s El Chipotle Picante Pumpkin Hot Sauce
6. Pumpkin Pie Tea
I am a big fan of Danielle from The Tea Loft here in Pittsburgh. For fall she has created a chai blend that includes sweet cinnamon and nutmeg.
Where is the pumpkin you ask? Be sure to check out her recipe for including agave, pumpkin puree and whipped cream in her freshly brewed tea!
Available from Tupelo Honey Teas: Pumpkin Pie Tea Blend
7. Pumpkin Marmalade
I think I was hungry when I created this list 🙂 This 100% all natural marmalade combines sweet mandarin and earthy pumpkin into silky bliss. They offer several amazing serving suggestions on their website, but I say we all pass ‘Go’ and head directly for the Mandarin Pumpkin Monte Cristo Sandwich. Make that little bit ‘o heaven for your PSL loving friend and watch them swoon.
Available from Earth & Vine Provisions: Mandarin Pumpkin Marmalade
8. Pumpkin Spice Olive Oil
The Queen Creek Olive Mill in Arizona creates this limited edition festive oil for the Fall Season. It would be a great addition to any gift basket, cheese plate or as a hostess gift during the Fall holidays.

9. Pumpkin Spice T-shirt
I couldn’t resist including this t-shirt in my gift list. I think this is a great analogy for what these scents do to our pumpkin spice loving friends.
