HALLOWEEN GIFT IDEAS
THAT GO BEYOND CANDY
SWEET WITHOUT CANDY
Halloween is quickly approaching, and with it beloved Halloween traditions like scary
costumes and annual pumpkin carving. Perhaps the most celebrated tradition of this
time of year is the purchase of candy. Almost $2 billion worth is sold each October,
much of it given away to trick or treaters or as Halloween gifts at parties. If you are
thinking about giving Halloween gifts to friends, family, or neighbors, therefore, you
may want to avoid the sweet stuff. Chances are, people are already purchasing large
quantities of candy for themselves, receiving candy at parties, and planning to deal
with leftover candy once trick or treating is finished. Instead, consider purchasing
Halloween gifts that go beyond candy. These 10 Halloween gift ideas are
appropriately Halloween-themed without the sugar.
THEMED TOYS
Themed toys make fun Halloween gift ideas for children.
•  Themed toys are a Halloween gift idea that is both fun and sugar free. There are
hundreds of these items from which you can choose. Some are holiday classics,
such as spider rings and themed stickers, while others are unique products, such
as LED spider glasses, light up bubble wands, and light sabers. Many are also
fairly inexpensive, allowing you to use them as a replacement for candy without
overspending your budget.
ARTS & CRAFTS
Arts and crafts make good Halloween gift ideas for the creative
people in your life.
•  For the more creative people in your life, arts and crafts can be good Halloween gift ideas.
Halloween-themed arts and crafts are available for both adults and kids. For example,you
can purchase a monster magnet craft kit for the kids and include the materials and
instructions for a spooky Halloween wreath for the adults. If you want to do the craft yourself
(such as putting together the wreath), you can always give the finished project as a gift
instead.
FOR THOSE WHO DON’T CELEBRATE…
Alternative Halloween gift ideas allow you to give gifts to those who do not celebrate the
holiday.
•  Many people choose not to celebrate Halloween, due either to a dislike of all things scary or
because of religious beliefs. For these friends and family members, you may want to consider
alternative Halloween gift ideas. For example, purchase fall-themed gifts like pumpkin decorations
for the adults. Purchase non scary stickers for the kids. Make up small treat bags that contain non
spooky items such as mini bubble wands and bubble solution and bouncy balls. And of course,
make sure that these alternative Halloween gift ideas will be acceptable to those who prefer not to
celebrate this October holiday.
BOOKS
Books can be fun Halloween gift ideas for book
lovers.
•  For the adults or kids in your life who love to read,
books can be a welcome Halloween gift idea. For
example, for the adults, purchase a classic piece of
spooky literature, like The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,
anything by Edgar Allen Poe, or The Strange Case of Dr.
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. For kids, consider purchasing the
Halloween versions of classic kids books like the Little
Blue Truck, Pete the Cat, or Sesame Street or spooky
stories written just for tweens and teens.
SPOOKY MOVIES
Spooky movies can serve as entertaining Halloween gift ideas for the season.
•  Of course, many Halloween parties include the viewing of Halloween and horror themed movies. If
you have friends or family who enjoy this kind of scary treat in October, a spooky movie might be
the right choice of Halloween gift. Classics for kids include Casper, Monsters Inc., and Hocus
Pocus,while good choices for adults include any thriller, horrro movie, or Halloween-themedfilm
like A Nightmare on Elm Streetor Sleepy Hollow. The key is to pick a movie that matches the ages
of the recipients, as well as their willingness to watch something scary.
SPOOKY TECH
Consider spooky technology gadgets as non candy Halloween gifts.
•  For the gadget loving Halloween gift recipient, there are many themed gadgets you can
purchase for them. For example, toilet paper rolls that emit spooky sounds and a
ghostly cell phone strap can create a fun way to celebrate the holiday. In addition, you
may want to consider purchasing one of the several ghost-finding, vampire finding, and
zombie finding apps out there for the truly Halloween obsessed gift recipient.
COOKWARE
Halloween cookware can make October meals fit the month’s theme.
•  Cookware can serve as a useful Halloween gift idea. For example, themed cake pans
and cookie cutters let you bake spooky treats for your Halloween party. Cauldron
shaped serving bowls and broomstick shaped serving platters let you dish out the
food in a creepy way. And, if you want a Halloween gift idea that is less scary and more
fall-ish, you can find kitchenware that features pumpkins and leaves instead of ghosts
and goblins.
TOWELS, NAPKINS, DISHES
Towels, napkins, and dishes are Halloween gift ideas for turning a kitchen
and table into a Halloween themed space.
•  If you want to move beyond cookware and turn your entire kitchen and dining
table into a Halloween themed space, consider Halloween gift ideas such as dish
towels, napkins, and dishes. For example, dish towels and napkins come in fall
colors or with Halloween-themed images such as black cats and witches. Table
settings such as plates and bowls come with fun images (such as Charlie Brown
and Snoopy) and creepier images (such as witches and skulls) to help your friend
or family member host  in Halloween style.
DECOR
Halloween décor can spruce up
your friends’ and family
members’ homes for the
holiday.
•  Of course, Halloween is not
limited to the kitchen. If your
friend or family member loves to
decorate for Halloween, consider
purchasing them themed décor
for the rest of their house. From
themed throw pillows to hanging
signs for the outdoors to skeleton
statues to place around the home,
this décor can add a spooky
theme to any room.
STORAGE
Themed buckets and bags make great Halloween gift ideas for trick or
treaters.
•  If you know someone going trick or treating this Halloween, consider
purchasing them a themed bucket or bag for collecting their candy. From
cheerful pumpkin shaped plastic buckets to fanciful and personalized cloth
ones, these buckets make trick or treating that much more fun for the kids in
your life. Purchasing Halloween gifts does not have to mean indulging in
more candy. If you want a sweets-free Halloween gift for friends or family,
consider anything from themed toys to themed buckets and bags for trick or
treating. And if you need help finding a Halloween gift, we here at Occasion
Station can help with a personal shopper service that locates the perfect gifts
for any event.
