Spooky basket bandwagon

As Halloween approaches I have been seeing social media posts about "spooky baskets," which are Halloween items placed in a candy basket.

In case you have a friend or significant other, I suggest you get them one because everyone wants one.

You do have to personalize your basket, though. I will give you all some tips on how I would make a basket for my boyfriend and my friend.

For my boyfriend, I would first include candy. His favorite candies are Butterfingers, Sour Patch Kids and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Second, I would add other snacks such as chips and sunflower seeds. He likes Hot Cheetos with Valentina sauce as well.

To personalize it a bit, I would include a new headset for him to play his Xbox games.

Next I would put some self-care items such as gum, deodorant, face masks and a razor set.

After that, I would add things that we could do together like Halloween coloring books, a scary movie and tiny pumpkins for us to paint. I would probably also buy us matching Halloween pajamas, but that would mainly be for me.

To add a little love I would write a card and make some homemade Halloween cookies.

For my friend, she’s a lot different, so items will vary.

I would still put candy and snacks (her favorites of course).

Then I would add Halloween socks and candles because all girls love socks and candles, but the candle has to be fall-themed like pumpkin spice or marshmallow fireside.

Next I would include general girl items such as bath bombs, lip scrub, makeup removers, chapstick, face masks and nail polish.

Most of my friends are obsessed with makeup, so I would also add that. I would put setting spray, a highlighter, seasonal colored lipsticks (red, purple, brown), beauty blenders and some falsies.

You can also never go wrong with adding a cozy Halloween blanket.

For hers, I would still put the items that we can do together like the movies and coloring book.

I would make hers special too by adding a handwritten card.

For both of them, I would also have to add some booze such as their favorite mini bottles.

So, there you have it: my personalized spooky baskets.

Don’t hesitate; get someone a spooky basket.
