Halloween, the funnest time!
Going to UCF, students have plenty of Halloween celebrations available to them including Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights which runs through November 4th. UCF students can get specially-priced tickets but they are only valid on Friday, November 3rd. They also have a Halloween Knight Climb at the Climbing Tower on October 30th and Arboretum Spooktacular on October 27th.
My religious upbringing did not recognize Halloween. And for those that do not, that is fine. But I was raised in a home that saw Halloween as just a day we dressed up and went door-to-door collecting candy. And my daughters were raised the same way- we would decorate the house, carve pumpkins and I would take them trick or treating. Halloween is not my favorite holiday (definitely my least favorite) and maybe because I do not have a sweet tooth but I will say, when my daughters left for college, I still sent them a Halloween care package filled with candy and a few decorations.
I always made my own or purchased through other companies. Here are some suggestions:
Our Campus Market – Now through Halloween, you can get 10% off by clicking here -includes everything from candy-filled tins to Mrs. Fields cookies and cookie cakes to popcorn.
Wicked Good Cupcakes – I first tried this company this month for my daughter’s birthday. They are a little pricey but she loved the birthday box. They do offer Halloween cupcake jars including reverse chocolate boo-day, pumpkin spice, reverse vanilla boo-day and many other flavors. Click here to get free shipping (some restrictions may apply)
Some of the local places like Insomnia Cookies have a few sweet and delicious ideas. Sweets by Holly will deliver the most amazing cupcakes (12 cupcakes for $20, plus a delivery fee). Other places to consider that have fun Halloween gifts to send to your student include Baked by Melissa and Treat House.
Just don’t wait until the last minute so you can avoid hefty shipping prices.
