WireCutter: 100 Most Popular Picks in October
PUBLISHED NOVEMBER 1, 2021
In October, we celebrated all things fall. As Halloween approached, our readers shopped the Wirecutter picks they needed to get the spooky season started. Plenty of folks gravitated toward items for cooler weather, like trendy smokeless fire pits and cozy comforters. As temperatures dipped, our readers also bought masks and purifiers to stay healthy. The Philips SmartSleep Wake-Up Light was also a welcome choice for those who struggle to adjust to post-daylight-savings mornings. Whether our readers are into pumpkin carving or creepy costumes, we hope our picks helped to create some supernatural fall memories.
