Halloween Gift Basket Ideas

This is How To Make A Halloween Gift Basket

Try this great Halloween idea for that special someone dressed in their funny Halloween costume this Halloween, give them a Halloween gift basket. You don’t have to be creative or even artistic to do this. All it takes is some knowledge about the person, or persons, you want to surprise in this way. The basket will contain items particular to their tastes, and they will love you for it.

A great idea is to create a special basket for a couple you may be close to. This one is especially nice if the couple either has no plans for Halloween, or they don’t have enough money to do anything special. You can provide them a very unique Halloween gift basket that will give them a lovely way to spend the evening. For this one, you will need a rather large basket. Start with the dinner. Choose food that you know they like. This can be either 2 nice steaks, bag of salad, and fixings for baked potatoes. Or it can be a gift certificate for pizza delivery. Use your own judgment. Add a six pack of soda, some Halloween cupcakes or cookies for dessert, a couple of scary movies that you know they want to see, and maybe some microwave popcorn to enjoy with the movie. This will be a much appreciated gift.

Another great fun Halloween gift basket idea is one for friend of yours who enjoys reading. Gather several scary paperback books, along with a small cozy stadium blanket, a beverage of choice, glass or cup, and, of course, Halloween munchies. These can include candy, along with some salted snack mix. This will provide a quiet and relaxing Halloween night. It might also provide a few delicious chills up the back.

Of course children also really enjoy gifts at Halloween even if they do get all that candy by trick or treating. It is for that reason that you may want to limit the candy in this particular Halloween gift basket. You will need to shop for age appropriate toys to include. These should also be run by the parents of the child before purchasing them to make sure your ideas are going to be alright with them.

And you don’t want to forget the older people in your life, such as parents and grandparents. They will enjoy receiving a gift basket, too. The items selected for these baskets will depend on any dietary or other restrictions. Again, shop with what you know about the person firmly planted in your mind. If you don’t have parents or grandparents of your own, try contacting a local home for the aged. A lot of the people there are also without family to treat them on special days. They would love to receive a Halloween gift basket.

The best thing to remember is that you are going to be putting smiles on faces with your thoughtfulness. You really do not need to spend a lot of money on your Halloween gift basket just be funny and creative - and remember your party costume!

Grease Themed Halloween Costumes For The Entire Family

Any Grease fans out there? This summer my husband and I have been reintroduced to the movie Grease. We have a 14 year old daughter and 13 year old son who have fallen in love with the movie just as we had done when we were younger. As we were singing along to the soundtrack in the car the other day my daughter came up with a great idea. Let?s all be characters from Grease this year for Halloween. We all had to agree we were having so much fun with the music and characters why not?
I began watching the movie for costumes and although they are basically 50?s style clothes there are some pieces that just pull the actual characters together and make it so much more fun to dress up. We agreed on our characters and all got to work on our costumes. I would be Sandy, my husband would be Danny, our daughter would be Frenchy her best friend would be Rizzo and our son would be Kenickie.

I got online and immediately found some great prices on Halloween costumes. Plus the pictures of the costumes gave me some great ideas. We ended up buying a lot of our accessories on line and a majority of the clothing too. Below is my check list for each character. We have had so much fun pulling all this together I hope it inspires you to become a member of the Pink Ladies or one of the T-Birds.


Items bought on line:

? Black Jacket with the T-Bird Logo
? Black and White high top tennis shoes
? T-Bird belt

Items used from our closet:

? White T-shirt
? Skinny Jeans with the cuffs rolled up

Sandy (bad Sandy)

? Purchased a costume that included a black dress with belt, a pink, Pink Ladies jacket

Also purchased on line to add to costume:

At first I was a little skeptical about shopping on line. But as my schedule became fuller and time was slipping away I began to search on line and found that I could get great deals. The fear for me went away when I ordered the Rizzo dress and realized that it was way too small. I returned it, no questions asked, and had the correct size in days.

Our kids were so proud that we went the extra mile and got genuine grease outfits that they have told their friends all about it. I am hearing talk in our neighborhood of other movie inspired family costumes. It?s going to be an awesome Halloween. Trick or Treat.
