Many consumers have already been making purchases in preparation for the new season and are sharing their feedback through their reviews on Trustpilot. We’ve rounded up some of the top categories in which consumers are making seasonal purchases, and are sharing some of the items that they have purchased for the autumn.
Outdoor home and garden supplies to prepare for changing weather
Leaves falling, temperatures dropping, and vegetables ripening are all signs that the new season has arrived. But with this comes needed maintenance of home and outdoors spaces, and consumers have shared the purchases that are helping them prepare for these changes.
Changing weather means falling leaves that clogged gutters and drainage systems. To combat this, Jack purchased a LeafFilter to protect their gutters from the large oak tree that has a tendency to make a mess. Jack was also happy with the quick installation.
Leaves can also make backyards a huge mess. Herb and Melanie purchased a Cyclone Rake ahead of the season to handle the tons of leaves soon to fall to the ground.
Autumn is the harvesting and planting season for many gardeners, which is why Margaret purchased a long handled bulb planter from The Tool Shed to prepare for bulb planting season.
Many are preparing to harvest their vegetables that they planted earlier this year. Christine ordered autumn cropping potatoes (and even a few extra for friends) from YouGarden, and reviewed the purchase back in July. No doubt Christine is looking forward to harvesting these potatoes this autumn.
Festive seasonal apparel and accessories
Cooler weather, festive events and holidays, and even early snow are just a few of the activities many of us will see over the coming weeks. Consumers have been preparing for these changes by making apparel and accessory purchases that fit the new season.
Many of us spend more time outdoors in the autumn. For example, Dale purchased seasonal apparel that protects from the wind in the autumn and spring from the outdoor store SA Company.
Some consumers love celebrating the change in season by wearing rich colors that represent the season. Angelique purchased a dress from Hope Fashion with autumn colors and also loved the environmentally friendly packagIng the dress arrived in.
Elizabeth also loved their purchase of tights in seasonal colors from Snag Tights, and said the pair in “cornel mustard” was their favorite.
Whether you're spending time in the garden or walking the dog in the rain, quality boots are a must for colder and wetter seasons. Susanah purchased a pair of Nebula Hunter Boots and is looking forward to having them for the autumn and winter.
Indoor and home decor for autumn aesthetics
Much in the way that we engage in “spring cleaning”, autumn is a time where many consumers opt for darker color palettes, richer textures and scents, and cozier decor inside their homes. Consumers have shared reviews that reveal what their favorite seasonal interior purchases have been.
Autumn is the time to start getting cozy and comfortable inside your home, which is why April left a 5-star review of her comfortable quilt purchase from Kogan.
Many are getting ready for hosting guests during the holiday season and preparing festive meals. Sheryl is preparing for these festivities by decorating their home with an autumn linen tablecloth from Collections Etc.
Pumpkins and foliage make for ideal autumn accents when decorating indoor spaces for the season. One consumer purchased a tuscan leaf wreath and rustic heirloom pumpkin set from Balsam Hill to complete their autumn decor plan.
Autumn is the season of rich spices and crisp air, which is why many look to enrich their indoor spaces with scented candles and wax burners. Kim purchased and loved an autumn scented soy wax melt from Glam Wax.
While some favor foliage and harvest decor, others are preparing haunted houses and ghostly scenes for Halloween. Coco purchased blacklights from OogaLights to get the perfect spooky aesthetic.
Autumnal activities and hobbies
Whether you prefer to stay warm indoors and find hobbies that let you enjoy the season at home, or find activities that let you enjoy the season’s outdoor colors and cooler temperatures, consumers are preparing to enjoy the season with activity and hobby purchases.
Puzzles were a breakout hit during stay at home orders, with many puzzle suppliers selling out earlier in the year. However, many consumers like James are sticking with their puzzle hobbies despite a temporary shortage. James is looking forward to buying more puzzles from White Mountain Puzzle for the autumn season.
There are many beautiful cycling paths that consumers will explore when the weather starts to cool and the colors change. Gillian purchased a high visibility jacket from 99 Bikes to ensure that motorists and other cyclists see her even when the sun sets earlier.
And finally, Rebecca wanted to share the joy of the season with their son and purchased an Autumn Scavenger hunt box from The Little Sensory Box, and has already enjoyed some of the items that were received.
We know there are many more categories in which consumers have made purchases for autumn, and that there are many businesses helping consumers get ready for the new season and all of the festivities that are soon to come. If you’ve made an autumn preparation purchase, leave the business or product a review on Trustpilot and let consumers and businesses know about your experience.
