Full disclosure… Halloween is my least favorite holiday. But, I do get my daughters a little something. It’s typically some candy and a small gift because this Halloween I’m creepin’ it real.
When my daughter was old enough to understand Halloween, I went out trick or treating with her because I didn’t want to negatively influence her. I dressed up as a basic witch. (Although if you read my t-shirt, my opinion comes through loud and clear).
Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun
My girls love Halloween so I feel good that I didn’t take that away from them. Love the candy. Love dressing up. And, even though they are in their 20’s, they still dress up. In fact, in 2019, they impressed me with their Schitt’s Creek and Harry Potter costumes.
Let’s Give ’em Pumpkin To Talk About
I never need an excuse to send a care package to my daughters… birthdays, holidays, get well soon, good luck, does not matter the reason.
It’s nothing fancy. This Halloween, I’, creepin’ it real. I’ll send candy, of course. That goes without saying. Since they are older, pretty much anything pumpkin-spiced is appreciated- Starbucks or Dunkin, pumpkin spice cookies, granola, you get the gist. In the past, I’ve sent them Halloween goodies from the companies below.
Cookies by Design– choose from their many Halloween cookie baskets.
The Dirty Cookie – Have you seen the famous cookie shots? If not, think of a cookie, but shaped in the form of a shot glass. You can fill it with milk, coffee, ice cream, or alcohol (21+), and you can pick a cookie shot in several different flavors! Try their Halloween Cookie Shot Arrangement to their DIY Cookie Shot Decorating Kit.
Wicked Good Cupcakes– Nothing says fall like pie. These adorable and out-of-this-world delicious pie jars are baked fresh and ready to ship. Choose from apple, blueberry, cherry, and more. I love their pumpkin spice, caramel apple streusel, and chocolate pumpkin.
Candy apples – I remember making these as a kid (boy did we get sticky) but we did not have the variety that is available today. Today, it’s all about gourmet caramel apples.
Surprise Them With Fa-boo-less Halloween Gifts
Personally, I don’t love sweets. If you’ve got someone special on your list, there are plenty of great options.
Greetabl – We love these small little boxes that you get to fill with something small, thoughtful, and personalized. And, they have not forgotten about Halloween. They have a Hello Pumpkin print Add in a card, and throw in all the spooky items of your choice! They have items from candy to candles to home décor – and your final price is based on the number of items you choose!
I actually ordered my daughters a Greetabl with a token piece of chocolate and a gift card so they can pick out their own pumpkin spice treat. You can order now and schedule the arrival date. Like I said, this Halloween, I am creepin’ it real.
Lovepop – Maybe if you just want to send a card, make it 3D. Choose from Tim Burton’s Hocus Pocus I Put A Spell On You Pop Up Card to Disney’s Haunted Mansion as well as an assortment of ghosts, skulls, and black cats & bats.
Getting Gifts to Their Destination is Tricky
The news about supply chain woes is making holiday shopping more complicated. HaveUHeard how scary long it is taking for packages to arrive on time? I find myself waiting extra weeks for items I order online. We are still over a month away from Halloween. But, I am not taking chances.
To avoid anyone thinking they’ve been ghosted this holiday season, maybe it is time to begin my next holiday prep.
