We’ve officially entered the season of fuzzy sweaters and pumpkin spice-inspired weather, and while fall is arguably the most glorious time of all, apples—one of mother nature’s greatest gifts—are in full swing. Typically harvested in late August through early November (depending on the variety), apples are kind of the unsung heroes of the season. Often passed over for pumpkins and gourds of every variety, apples, like a bold glass of Barolo, or binging a “My Crazy Ex” marathon on Lifetime, are dependable and always get the job done.
So if you’re looking to take your love for apples to the next level, or if you have an apple addict you’re eager to show some love, from a crisp apple champagne and apple infused vodka to a delightful apple ice cube tray and apple scented air freshener, here’s a look at some of the most thoughtful apple-inspired gift ideas for the apple lover in your life.
Champagne POMMERY’s latest release is made from 100 percent chardonnay grapes and features bright notes of apple, making it a solid choice for apple lovers. If you’re worried that this champagne will be too sweet or apple heavy, don’t be. This is a nicely balanced champagne with subtle, floral apple and grapefruit notes and flavors including yellow grapefruit, creating the perfect apple-forward sip.See It

Apple Ice Cube Tray
Okay, so this apple-shaped ice cube tray is not only the cutest apple-inspired gift on this carefully-curated apple gift guide, it’s also extremely practical. Allow me to explain. Fill it up with apple juice and make apple-flavored popsicles, or freeze a few cubes of apple juice and pop ’em into your guests glasses at your next fall holiday party. So many options to choose from in one adorable gift.See It
This may seem like an obvious choice, but a good apple peeler is core to any chefs kitchenette. And while this Williams Sonoma apple peeler/corer may look like a modern day torture device, it’s a tried, tested, and apple lover approved gadget.See It
Apple Face Mask
For the beauty and skincare obsessed, Lancer Skincare’s Omega Hydrating Oil features apple stem cell compounds that provides a tighter and more lifted appearance. In case you were wondering what apple stem cells are, all you need to know is that the ingredient is capable of reducing wrinkles and this product, which was created by the Dr. Harold Lancer (dermatologist to celebs including Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian, and Beyoncé) is a nice gift for anyone looking to take their apple affection to the next level.See It
Fall is a great time to experiment with new flavors and this Boardroom Spirits’s Apple Eau De Vie Style Brandy, which uses 100 percent real Pennsylvania-grown red apples from Frecon Farms, is a great way to challenge your taste buds. Sip it on its own, pour it over ice, or mix it cocktail style and capture the harvest-fresh aroma, flavor, and essence of fall in one fell swoop.See It
Fruit wines are somewhat of a personal preference. However, this Spiced Apple Wine by Chaddsford Winery is a delicious blend of apple, cinnamon, and spice that can be tried individually, in a cocktail (like their Spiced Apple Ginger Mule), or warmed up for a soothing hot mulled wine.See It
Apple Scented Products
Febreze is bringing all the apple scented products including their limited-edition Fresh-Pressed Apple air freshener, plug, candle, and wax. While prices vary depending on the retailer, these are a great and inexpensive way to give the gift of smell for the apple lovers all day long.See It
