Halloween isn’t traditionally a holiday that you give out gifts (unless you head off trick or treating), but that doesn’t mean you can’t.
There is no written rule that says you can’t hand out Halloween gifts right?
Besides, kids love giving things to their besties and teachers at school. Sometimes it’s nice to have something a little different to give and if you can theme the gift to a holiday it just makes it even more fun.
Here are 12 Halloween gifts that I know you are going to love. The kiddies can help make them, which is a great opportunity to have some one on one time with them.
1. Halloween Candy Bar Wrappers
What’s the first thing you think of when you consider Halloween gifts? Candy. Of course it’s candy!
So what better way to give a candy bar than to wrap them up in spook-tacular Halloween candy bar wrappers. With an instant download, this is a quick and easy way to have those Halloween gifts ready to rock and roll in a jiffy.
Oh, and did I mention that these wrappers are completely free for you to download?
2. Halloween Lunch Box Notes
What to give the kids a smile when they open their lunch box’s at school? Pop in one of these Halloween lunch box notes and it will certainly do the trick.
There are four designs to choose from, so you could pop one in the box every day leading up to Halloween for a bit of added fun.
3. Halloween Friendship Bracelets
These Halloween friendship bracelets by “Red Ted Art” are so adorable. Kids love giving bracelets to friends and with the super cute printable to go with it, it makes the perfect gift.
4. You’ve Been Booed Game
Do you like the idea of playing a bit of a game with your neighbors? “Trish Sutton” has the perfect game for you in the sense of you’ve been booed!
The idea is that you create a basket of goodies and leave it on your neighbors doorstep. Use the free printable which explains that they have been “booed”. Your neighbors can then repeat the game to someone else.
This is definitely a great alternative way of handing out some Halloween gifts, and making it super fun in the process.
5. Hand Print Halloween Craft
How awesome are kids hand and feet prints. Kids grow so quickly, that these crafts are an amazing way to keep a reminder of how little they once were.
So, if you are looking for something non-candy this year, Halloween gifts in the form of the kids hand prints could be just the thing for you!
“Mod Podge Rocks” shows you exactly how to create it.
6. Monster Pencils
I love these monster pencils by “Thrifty Jinxy”. If you are having a Halloween party, these would be awesome to give out as party favors.
Alternatively they would make great Halloween gifts for the kids to hand out at school or to give to trick or treater’s.
They are such a simple concept, but kids definitely love the simple things.
7. Skull Bath Bomb
Do you know someone who loves their bath bombs? In that case, they will love these skull bath bombs by “Beauty Crafter”.
These are not the scary type of skulls though, which makes them perfect Halloween gifts for children. They would be a great way relax after a busy night out on the streets trick or treating!
8. Halloween Eye Bath Bombs
Another awesome bath bomb idea are these Halloween bath bomb eyes by “Red Ted Art”. They look super creepy. Would you get in a bath with one?
They are really easy to make and look fantastic wrapped up in a bag or a jar as a gift.
9. Monster Bookmarks
For the avid readers these monster bookmarks by “mom Vs The Boys” are the perfect Halloween gift. They would be great to give to friends at school or to teachers.
Creating them is easy with an instant download printable and simply attaching a ribbon of choice.
10. Halloween Mini Bookmarks
How much fun are these mini Halloween bookmarks by “Artsy Crafty Mom”. They are another great alternative to hand out to trick or treater’s instead of candy.
Alternatively, if you are having a Halloween get together, why not have a crafting table and have the kids make these. They would love taking their creations home at the end of the day.
11. Bat Candy Dish
How does giving a stash of candy in a bat dish sound? If you love the idea of giving out Halloween gifts of candy, but want to present it in a different way, then this bat candy dish by “Winter and Sparrow” is the perfect solution.
It is easy to make and will certainly make that candy look extra inviting this Halloween.
They would also make awesome party favors to hand out at the end of a Halloween party.
12. Printable Halloween Labels & Tags
Well you have the Halloween gifts organized, now all you need to do is hand them over. These Halloween labels are perfect to help you with that.
Simply print and attach to your gift with a ribbon of your choice.
