HGTV’S Chip and Joanna Gaines have a deep appreciation for the harvest season, and they know a thing or two about finding well-made products that make life a little bit easier and more festive.

Before the cooler temperatures hit, stock up on a few of the couple’s staples for fall. From Joanna’s favorite nontoxic and cruelty-free nail polish (in a stunning purple hue) to Chip’s handy campfire roasting sticks, transitioning to autumn will be a breeze.

Canning jars are practical and purposeful, so I like to have plenty on hand at home. They’re ideal for preserving fruits and veggies from my garden, and the kids love to store their favorite treasures in them. These Kinetic copper ones are airtight, stackable, freezer-safe, and top-rack dishwasher-safe.
