Boo Basket Ideas

October 9, 2019

Booing our neighbors is an activity my girls love & look forward to every year! They also love the surprise of being boo’ed and trying to figure out which one of the neighbors left a fun present on our doorstep! Some years I feel like I get in a little rut on what to put in our basket besides candy since everyone gets more than enough of that on Halloween. I also don’t want to fill up a basket with a bunch of junk, so I wanted to share a few options in case anyone is in need of some new boo basket ideas!

The first place we hit up was the Target dollar spot (naturally). We ended up going to two different stores because as soon as that Halloween decor gets set out it gets snatched up – fast!!! I did end up finding a lot of great options all for $3 or less.

My girls love the mess free markers and mama does too for obvious reasons! These were on sale for $3 in the Target Dollar Spot. Bullseyes Playground has sooo many cute toy options that are all extremely affordable!

Target also has an entire booing supplies section on their website. One of the neighbors we planned to boo has a boy in first grade, so I figured these gory bouncy eye balls would be a fun choice for him. We also added these fake witch fingernails for their older daughter to play with.

Halloween stickers were also an easy no brainer to add to our basket. Target had some cute Halloween pencils and magnetic notepads I thought were really cute!

Also, how darling is this little pumpkin cookie cuter my sister-in-law found? I love the way she tied it to a bag of cookie dough! This one is only .99 cents from Target.

I love putting together a little something for the mom’s too. This year I added an inexpensive, but very tasty bottle of wine in this Halloween bag and added some cute “boozin” napkins. These are from Pier 1 Imports.

Here is a link to the above “You’ve been boozed” free printable. I’ll also include the link for the free boo printable that we used.

The basket, stick pumpkins and vampire teeth in our basket were all found at the Dollar Tree!
