10 for $10: Pumpkin Spice Edition
Confession: I’m not much of a Starbucks girl, but if there’s one time of year you’ll catch me skulking around in there, it’s pumpkin spice latte season. Or as I like to call it pumpkin scone season. The most wonderful time of the snacking year. I just remind myself with every bite – it’s not like it’s an indefinite season! Nay, we’ve only got about 8 short weeks to enjoy that yummy pumpkin-y, spice-y, oh so fall-y flavour. That is, until now.
This month I’ve rounded up 10 gift ideas inspired by all things pumpkin to help you enjoy that spicy sweet flavour for well beyond #PSL season. And all of them are $10 or less! Woo woo! Let’s dive in, shall we?
