Halloween Baskets


Every year on Valentines Day, Easter and Halloween I like to put together a little basket of goodies for each of my girls.  Each basket contains a few little, inexpensive themed items that I gather in my travels.  I try to include a book, an activity book, stickers or craft kit, a dvd, pyjamas and a few small, cheap novelty items - all in theme with the event.  It's usually the cheapest novelty items which the girls love the most!


I usually share pictures of the baskets on social media and people always ask what I put in them so here is a flatlay of each of the girls Halloween baskets.


Maddie's basket includes Vintage Halloween Colouring Book, Funnybones (I had this book when I was little!) and Fancy Nancy Candy Bonanza.  Hallmark Halloween Stickers from Ikes Emporium.  BOO Halloween Pyjamas from Gymboree.  Hello Kitty stickers, Hello Kitty Halloween Jelly Bellys and Halloween Bubbles from Martha's Backyard.  Caspers Scare School DVD only $2 from The Warehouse.  Pumpkin Glasses from Look Sharp Store.  Halloween Pez (my parents brought back from Las Vegas).  And a Lalaloopsy Halloween Mini Doll which I bought on eBay to add to the girls collection.



Maisie's loot is much the same.  Halloween ABC and Spot's Halloween.  BOO pyjamas from Gymboree.   Hallmark Halloween Stickers from Ikes Emporium.  BOO Halloween Pyjamas from Gymboree.  Hello Kitty stickers, Hello Kitty Halloween Jelly Bellys and Halloween Bubbles from Martha's Backyard.  Wiggles Pumpkin Face DVD from The Warehouse.  Pumpkin Glasses from Look Sharp Store.  And a Halloween Pez (my parents brought back from Las Vegas).


Here is a list of the other Halloween themed books that my girls like to read at this time of year.

We also did a bit of Halloween decorating to the dresser in our dining room this year.


Bats and glitter pumpkins from Spotlight.  Pumpkin head, cobwebs, black netting and spider garland from The Warehouse.  Spiders web placemats from Look Sharp Store.  Halloween subway printable from Eighteen 25.


I'd love to hear or see what you get up to for Halloween too x
