-  leave out the vanilla but add 2 tsp of pumpkin spice to mixture + 1 1/2 tbsp of pumpkin puree (if you don't have the puree the pumpkin spice is enough)

Peppermint Syrup

Canadian Coffee Syrup

I store mine in a wine bottle with a screw on lid. Can be left on countertop for 1-2 weeks.
If using pumpkin puree you can strain the mixture after it is heated.

Stovetop Method:
You can also make these using a sauce pot but it requires constant stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
