Halloween Gift Ideas
Halloween is a festival of fun and excitement.
Originally the Celtic New Year festival of Samhain, Halloween marks the
day, when it is believed that the evil spirits such as vampires, ghosts
and witches, come to Earth and terrify people. In the earlier days,
Celtic people used to paint their faces and wear terrifying costumes to
scare off these evil spirits. The tradition has continued to the day in
the form of 'trick-or-treat'. People throw party, wear scary costumes,
decorate their houses, as haunted house, and have a blast. It's the day
of the devil and perfect time to unleash the monster within. The custom
of giving gifts to near and dear ones is also a part of the celebration.
The gift chosen should be such that it depicts the theme of the
celebration. The gifts chosen should be scary and ghostly, matching the
theme of the holiday. If you are confused, as to what gift you can give
your family and friends on this ghostly day, look no further. In the
following lines, we have provided great gift ideas for Halloween.
Gift Ideas For Halloween
- Come celebration time, kids are the most excited lot. You can
make them masks of a monster, witch or a vampire. This is sure to
add to the spirit of the festival.
- Another gift idea would be to make gift boxes on scary images,
like a coffin shape box or a face of monster. Keep a small
artificial bone inside the box, so that when the recipient opens the
box, he/she would get more scared.
- In case you want to gift attires, buy plain t-shirt from the
market and customize it by painting scary faces. It will be
appropriate with the theme of the occasion.
- If you are not artistic when it comes to painting or do not have
so much of time to spare, you can even resort to buying specially
Halloween designed costumes.
- Sweet treats are an effective way to celebrate the festival of
Halloween. Monster shape cakes, homemade spooky faced cookies are a
good option to explore as gifts.
- The other option would be to give homemade cards based on scary
themes and spooky Halloween messages.
- For a music lover, you can go for DVD and VCD of horror movies or
suspense thrillers. Audio CD on horror music is also a good option.
- For book lovers, the ideal gift option would be to give horror
books. However, make sure the book you choose has all the elements
of suspense, thrill and horror.
- For girls you can opt for jewelry. Chain with scary pendants such
as skeleton, or monster is a perfect gift option. Hats are also a
good choice. Even scary showpieces can also be given as gift items.
- Gifting board games, which are based on the theme of Halloween,
is also a good option to explore.
- Make-up kit makes a perfect choice for Halloween gift options.
The kit would help the recipient give herself a perfect ghostly make
up, for the evening party.
