Let's face it: Not all of us are fit to cook up Thanksgiving dinner. The esteemed role of feeding the family is reserved for the chef of the house and, well, we can't say we envy them. (Cooking over a hot stove for hours for your discriminating group of guests has its pressures!) However, satisfying your guests' sweet tooth is an equally important responsibility. So if you're on dessert duty, round up your pies, cakes, and pastries in more ways than one. Grace your dinner table in a body cream, lip balm, or bronzer inspired by some of fall's most delicious sweet treats for a whole new meaning to "bringing dessert."
1. NEST Sugar Cookie 3-Wick Candle
Fun game: light each wick before inviting your guests over, and see how long it takes them to figure out you don't actually have cookies baking in the oven. Seriously, the aroma is that believeable.
NEST | $64
2. Too Faced Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer
Between the decadent fragrance, the pie crust-esque pattern, and the nice even color it leaves on your complexion, even Paul Hollywood would be cool with naming this bronzer a contender for star baker on The Great British Bake-Off.
Too Faced | $30
4. Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack
This gel mask can be worn overnight or for an extended amount of time to really let your skin savor the hydrating and nourishing qualities the pumpkin infusion brings to the table.
Too Cool for School | $20
5. Viktor & Rolf BonBon Fragrance
The most decadent caramel in the world with a twist of mandarin orange and peach may seem like a confection dreamed up by Sugarfina, but they're actually dominant notes in Viktor & Rolf's beyond-indulgent fragrance, which smells just as sweet on contact with your skin.
Viktor & Rolf | $115
6. Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shower Gel and Bubble Bath
You could follow the recipe on the bottle to whip up a batch, but slathering yourself in the gel's Cinnabon-esque aroma provides some more immediate satisfaction.
Philosophy | $18
7. Origins Ginger Souffle Whipped Body Cream
Not nearly as fragile as actual souffles, you don't have to worry about loud noises disrupting the structure of this nourishing body cream, which, by the way, smells almost exactly like a freshly-baked gingerbread cookie.
Origins | $35
