Can you believe it’s already mid-November? I’m late on the pumpkin train this year. I had one pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks and that was it. I have yet to order another. I don’t know what is wrong with me.
As I drove home from a work meeting, I thought about stopping to grab something festive and caffeinated at the local shop. Then I remembered I had to pee. #momlife (I am telling you, this “mom brain” thing is real. I’m surprised I haven’t written “bathroom” on my hand as a reminder to go.) Anyway, I started pulling a list of pumpkin and pumpkin spice items for the rest of you crazies who love PSL.
Gift Guide: Pumpkin Spice Products
Starbucks VIA in Pumpkin Spice Latte – Can’t make it to your local Starbys? Make a PSL at home with a VIA packet. I love VIA packets, especially when I travel. They’re tiny and you can get super strong coffee out of these things. Sometimes you can find these VIA packs at TJ Maxx! Just be sure to check the expiration date.
Pumpkin Spice Bath Bombs by Sink and Soak – It’s all about the bath. I love bath bombs because of the fizz they create. (Remember, you can save your graywater!) These bath bombs look even cuter with its sprinkle of cinnamon!
Peter Lamas Pumpkin Facial Scrub – I received this in my Shape Meet & Tweet gift bag and have started to use this while showering. Confession: I also scrub my feet with this because hi, soft feet!
Pumpkin Spice Tea with Caramel and Cinnamon by Nova Teas – Good lord. This looks amazing. I don’t drink tea often but I would drink the ish out of this tea. (And I’m not even a caramel fan!)
Speaking of teas, if you ever need a pick-me-up, I totally recommend brewing ginger tea. No caffeine (whut) and it wakes you up.
The Pumpkin Spice Must Flow sweater – Hahahaha! If you are a fan of Dune, you know what this is. I laughed out loud when I saw this.
If, like The Wife, you are not a fan of sci-fi, perhaps this Spice Girls-inspired sweater is more to your liking.
Pumpkin Spice Whipped Soap by Tiny House Big Farm – What the what! I ordered this. It was too interesting not to.
This is whipped. soap. I’ve never even heard of this until I started looking around for pumpkin spice.
Torani Pumpkin Spice Syrup – Make your own at home with this syrup. You’ve probably seen this brand at Starbucks for other espresso drinks. You can try this syrup with your machine at home. It may not be the same but I bet it’ll save you a bit of money.
Pumpkin Spice Spice Baby onesie – Come on. You didn’t laugh?
Pumpkin Roll scent bar – My friend Melissa Dell is a Scentsy consultant (rep). These wax bars go into a warmer and as the wax melts, the scent fills the air. Kind of neat.
Pumpkin Spice coffee protein shake – Ok and my other buddy Anne Hogan is a Beachbody consultant (rep). She’s got a great recipe to make your own pumpkin spice protein shake. (My only change is to cold brew the coffee, which would take another day but cold brew is better than hot brewed refrigerated.)
There a crap ton of pumpkin spice products all over the internet. I mean, we’re talking:
- Blue Diamond almonds
- Hershey’s Kisses
- Wrigley’s gum (Yechhhhh)
- Pepperidge Farm pumpkin cheesecake cookies
- Pancake mix
Yeah. I still can’t wrap my head around the chewing gum. Ughhhhhhh.
What have you found that has got you addicted to pumpkin spice? What’s the weirdest product you’ve seen?
Happy PSL season!

Ha ha ha, I had a feeling coffee lovers would judge my “make coffee and put in the fridge” method! 😉
I haven’t been on the PSL train this year, but whipped soap?! What magic is that?! That tea also sounds amazing.
