Halloween is around the corner and still no spooky basket?

Whether if it’s for yourself or a loved one, here are a few tips on how to make the perfect and the spookiest basket!

I, as a college student, understand that money can be limited, so this list will go from AFFORDABLE to A LITTLE MORE EXPENSIVE!!! Enjoy!!!



1. The main part of the spooky basket is the basket itself, right?

There are many options to choose what kind of container you would want to hold your items in. Here is a short list of what kind of container you can use for your boo’s basket:

  • Basket (duh)

  • Halloween themed bucket

  • A crate ( I know it sounds odd but they look unbelievably adorable

2.  What kind of basket wouldn’t have candy!!! A most favored item of mine for a spooky basket is food/snacks of course!

  • Chocolates

  • Candies/ Gum

  • Chips

  • Cookies

  • Drinks

You can easily cop these items at a Dollar Tree, 99 Cents Stores, Walmart and Target!


3. Halloween themed socks!!! As the Nights get colder, wearing these spooky socks will keep one warm and cozy.

Collect those spooky socks at Target for just $2!
