Finding an Easter basket is a beloved tradition for children. Who could ask for anything better than a basket of Easter treats from the Easter Bunny himself? Here is my suggestion. What about a spooky basket?
What Is a Spooky Basket?
Think of a Halloween basket as an Easter basket, but with Halloween-themed items. There have been several baskets popping up on Instagram and blogs, filled with all sorts of treats for kids, friends, partners, and even pets.
It’s common to pick jack-o’-lantern pumpkin baskets, but you can also use a simple wire basket, as long as it’s filled with the right things. You can make this at home if you’re concerned about sending your kids out to trick-or-treat this year.
Our Best Spooky Basket Ideas
Candy is first on the agenda, of course! Halloween candy is available in plenty this season, from peanut butter lovers’ Reese’s Pumpkins to Salted Caramel Twix to nerdy Nerds Candy Corn.
Mix it up with some savory snacks – they don’t even have to be Halloween themed. Add Cheetos, Goldfish, or anything else orange that your kids will love. Balance things out with healthy snacks as well.
Many parents include non-food items like books and cozy fall clothing. Consider fuzzy socks, hats, cute Halloween-themed t-shirts and even pajamas that they can curl up in while eating all that candy. Consider sprinkling some Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown merchandise into your party for older kids.
For your information, spooky baskets aren’t only for kids. You can also make one for adults! Add a few pampering items from Bath & Body Works Halloween collection or indulgent but spooky hot cocoa bombs to the candy and snacks. Then you’re all set to snuggle up on Halloween!
