Halloween Gifting

When you think of Halloween, trick or treating and creative costumes probably pop to mind. But, as the days grow shorter and the nights longer, scary season is also the perfect opportunity to brighten someone’s day with a random act of kindness.

Whether you’re treating yourself to a little self-care or building a Boo Basket to give to someone special, we’ve got all the Halloween gift ideas you’ll need to make everyone’s witches come true. 

What is a Boo Basket?

Unfamiliar with these cozy creations? The premise behind a Boo Basket is pretty simple: it’s a basket, bag or box that’s filled to the brim with Halloween- or fall-themed treats. Originally, these were left on the doorstep of an unsuspecting neighbor, with an intent for them to pay the good feels forward by then creating one for the next door over. 

But you no longer have to know your neighbors to build a Boo Basket. These seasonal sensations have evolved into the perfect random act of kindness for your family, friends or anyone else who could use some extra pumpkin, spice and everything nice.

Ready to build your own boo-tiful care package? 

How to build a Boo Basket

Step one: the basket

You can use a basket, bag, bin or anything big enough to hold all the treats you’re gifting to that special someone. If you’re building themed Halloween gift baskets, you may want to use something within the same color scheme or one that uplifts the vibe you’re going for. 

To get you started, our Weird Science Tin is a perfect base for building a unique gift filled with scary-good treats.

Step two: the goodies

Now it’s time for the main event! A selection of seasonal treats that’ll make your Boo Basket come alive. You can be your own mad scientist and build a completely unique combination of bath bombs, shower gels, bubble bars and anything you think will give your loved one a fright—we mean, delight. 

Creating a haunted Boo Basket? Ghostie Bath Bomb, Demon In The Dark Soap and The Haunted Forest Knot-Wrap are scary good additions. Or if you’re creating a pumpkin spice-themed gift, Pumpkin Crumble Bubbleroon and Pumpkin Sheet Mask might be your perfect pairing.

Feeling inspired? Browse our entire limited-edition Halloween line along with our bestselling products and get creative!

Step three: creature comforts

To top off your brilliant Boo Basket, you may want to add in some cozy extras. This could be a fuzzy blanket, a festive snack, a handwritten card, or anything that’ll infuse some extra love and scare. 

Have fun and you’re sure to build a Boo Basket that’ll make ‘em scream!

Need some personal TLC? Plan a solo night to soak in the sweet, peppery waters of Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb while you refresh your tired eyes with mineral-rich Pumpkin Eye Pads. Either way, carve out some me-time because, pumpkin, you deserve it!

Bewitch the senses with seasonal scents

Scent is a powerful tool for elevating an experience or igniting nostalgia. Whether you’re adding in a little something special to a gift or enhancing the vibe at a planned event, the right smell can uplift any atmosphere.

Bask in the mischief of a sweet, peppery glow with Lord Of Misrule 4 Wick Candle, indulge in a spritz of the sinfully sweet Snow Fairy Body Spray, rest easy on clouds of skin softening lavender with Sleepy Body Lotion and so much more. Take a moment to browse our collection of fragrances and find your perfect pairing.
