Okay, so giving gifts on Halloween are not too customary, but giving treats to the little ones are pretty normal. Right? Well, adults get treats too, but sometimes it is something we are not too fond of… like… hmmmm, candy corn. Just the very thought of candy corn makes me want to, I’ll spare you the details. Spice cookies, I mean what are spice cookies anyway? And don’t get me started on candied apples. Maybe we should create “Chipped Tooth” Day to celebrate all the damage from biting into one of those things. Now before you go thinking I am all ‘bah, humbug’ about Halloween, I am not. I guess I just never developed a taste for a wide array of sweets. Or maybe it’s just candies specific to Halloween. I don’t know, but I do like to get tasty treats, dress up in costume and head off to a fun Halloween party.
So what type of tasty treats can you give as a gift to someone picky about their sweets? Or not sweets at all, just little gifts? Here are 3 gift suggestions you can give on Halloween in lieu of those pesky little candy corns and candied apples:
- Scented Candles – or a wickless candle with delightful fragrances of vanilla, pumpkin, cinnamon or spice. For instance, you can purchase a Scentsy warmer which use a low-watt bulb to slowly melt specially formulated wax. If you have little ones at home, the Scentsy candle, or warmer as they call it, has no flame, smoke or soot. It is a safe substitute for a wicker candle.
- Halloween Fun Earrings are great gifts for ladies and little girls to wear during October to add a little flavor to their outfits. Little friendly ghost, ladybugs or bright orange pumpkin style earrings can become a conversation point as people stop to compliment you on your new, flossy style. You can present them in a cellophane bag tied with a bow or in a complementary gift box. Both items are easily available at any hobby store such as Hobby Lobby, Michaels or JoAnn’s. Either way, this simple gift is sure to brighten someone’s day for Halloween.
- Halloween themed gift baskets can be a perfect mix of candy and other simple gifts to give to someone on Halloween. How about this Frightfully Fun Halloween Pail? It’s filled with a plush pug faced puppy dressed in disguise and delivers a spooky surprise pail filled with Halloween treats including Halloween Pumpkin stencils with pumpkin carver, Marshmallow pumpkin Peeps, Silly String, Halloween Glow Bracelets/Necklaces, Spooky stories & sounds Halloween Cd, Halloween flashlight, 2-marshmallow eyeballs, Peanut Butter pumpkins, Witches Warts candies, M & M’s ,Milk Chocolate Reese’s Pieces, Halloween bats pretzels, Pumpkin ball, and cup game, Trick or Treat plush puppy (Puppies are dressed for Halloween in an assortment of costumes.) Rice krispie treats, Halloween microwave popcorn, Halloween sucker, and also comes with a Frightfully Fun Halloween bow. Wow! It’s a party in a pail. Can you ask for more? Well, of course you can, but you get the idea.
Whatever you decide to do for Halloween, be it candy corn, nifty earrings, a gift basket or something else, just make something indicative of you and your individual taste. It will make the holiday more enjoyable and memorable, then if we stick to the same ole treats every year. As a matter of fact, change it up a bit every year. Keep your gift recipients guessing, “what’s next?”
