Gift ideas for Halloween
While a certain other holiday tends to hog the gift-giving spotlight, there’s no reason you can’t start the season of generosity early. Halloween is the perfect time to deliver a treat to your friends — no tricks required! Building a thematic basket of goodies will wow any recipient (and let you save wrapping paper for December). Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Embrace fall colors
Whether you’re shopping for a die-hard Halloween lover or a fall fanatic, you can’t go wrong with an autumnal theme. Orange, red and yellow make beautiful collages together, both in nature and in gift baskets. Keep these colors in mind while looking for presents, as well as tissue paper, ribbons and other decorations!
Give sweets some thought
Candy is a natural fit for any Halloween basket — especially if you’re shopping for a sweets lover who claims to be “too old” for trick-or-treating. This is easy enough when you know what treats your friend loves, but it can get tricky if you’re delivering a gift to a new acquaintance. In this situation, it’s best to stick to store-bought candy, avoiding items that contain nuts or other common allergens.
Dial in the spooky
It can be tempting to go all-in on the Halloween theme and deliver a haunting display, but it’s best to keep your audience in mind. For example, you don’t want to cover your basket with plastic spiders only to find out your friend is an arachnophobe. Unless you really know the person you’re shopping for, it’s best to stick to the lighter side of spooky. The Under Wraps Mini Warmer and Jack-o’-Lantern Bitty Buddy capture the spirit of the holiday while still fun for the whole family — plus they’re perfectly basket-sized!
Create autumnal magic
If your friend is more into lattes than Jack-o’-Lanterns, lean into their fall style! Look for gifts that are all about coziness, comfort and nature — the sort of things you could see them appreciating on a crisp autumn morning. The Cranberry Pumpkin Spice – Buttercup Belle Fragrance Flower and Gilded Leaves Mini Warmer both embrace the quiet joys of the season.
Make it your own
The best part about gift baskets is how expressive they can be! This is a chance to let your creativity shine, so don’t hold back! If you want more Halloween and fall inspiration, Scentsy’s Harvest Collection has a bounty of Halloween and seasonal products to choose from!
