Scares are in the air as October approaches and Halloween looms near! And what better time than now to start thinking about all the gory goodies to make your spooky season complete!
We also have a fang-tastic 'trick or treating at home' game at the end of this blog that'll mean you can stay cosy indoors on the 31st!
With our range of Halloween tricks and treats being bigger and better than ever, why not have a look at 10 of our decoration and costume top picks? They'll turn your house into a true fright-mare!
1. Spooky Animal Skeletons
Can you feel it in your bones? Our skeleton animals are just the perfect spooktacular decoration for your home this Halloween!
Whether you'd want your skeleton companion to be a dog, an owl or a vulture, we have all those and more in-stores!
2. Scary Spider Web
What makes a haunted house look the part? Lots of stretchy scary spider webs, that's what!
Made to look like thick, age-old webs, this spider web decoration (complete with spiders) can be draped over bannisters, fireplaces or anywhere to give that perfect Halloween feel!
3. Glow in the Dark Window Stickers
Nothing looks cooler or spookier than some classic glow in the dark stickers to really get the scares going!
They're the perfect decoration for your home this Halloween; simply stick them to your windows, mirrors or any other glass surface in your home, flick the lights off and be amazed!
4. Wicked Window Gel Stickers
If glow in the dark stickers don't float your coffin, then maybe these gel clings are more your thing?
Whether you want a wicked witch or even some skulls stuck to your window, these decorations will scare and delight your guests and neighbours and can be arranged in any way you please to create your own Halloween-themed scene!
5. Scary Surgeon Costume
Our kids costumes are devilishly bone-chilling this year, with our spooky surgeon ready to begin a blood-curdling operation (knife not included)!
With blood-splattered scrubs, this costume is perfect for Halloween parties or trick or treating!
6. Halloween Jester Costume
Maybe a jester outfit would be more your child's favourite costume? With bloody handprints on a lovely patterned dress, this chilling ensemble is ideal for your child this Halloween!
7. Pumpkin Tealight Holder
You mustn't forget Halloween lighting either! We have a lovely (and by lovely, we mean horrifying!) pumpkin tealight holder.
Fill your home with warmth and also add an eerie atmosphere to any get-togethers, even if it's just your household, that you're planning this year!
Oh, and don't forget your tealights!
8. Halloween Spooky Signs
Let your guests know just what to expect with this ghoulish sign, reading 'Tis the season to be spooky', as we all know Halloween is the greatest holiday of them all, right?
We also have another sign reading 'Come in for a bite', either (or both) would look great hanging up in or around your home this October!
9. Syringe Shots
There's no need to fear these syringe shots, not when they're filled with blood (fizzy cherryade?) or even some strange spooky serum!
These party drink syringes are a great quirky addition to your spooky soirees!
10. Halloween Tinsel
No party would be complete without some lovely Halloween-themed tinsel!
Sometimes the spooky dingy dungeon decor doesn't fit your required theme, and these adorable pumpkin and cat tinsel decorations are just what you can use for some child-friendly fun!
Stay at home, have a scream!
If you'd rather have a stay at home sort of Halloween this year, you're in luck! We have a ghoulish, fangtastical, mesmerising and all-around fun game you can play at home!
First, read the card and hide a trick or a treat in the places the clues lead to for your children to find. You can decide whether to leave a trick (a spider, horrible tasting sweets, etc.) or a treat!
Shuffle up the printed cards and place them face down in a pile. Ask your children to take it in turns by taking a card and reading the clue. They must solve the clue and try to hunt out the trick or treat!
Sounds like a ghoulishly delightful way to spend Halloween, right?! Want to play along and download our game for yourself to try? Simply click on the link below to access the PDF:
