Boo Basket Ideas

October 9, 2019

Booing our neighbors is an activity my girls look forward to every year! They also love the surprise of getting “boo’ed” and trying to figure out which one of the neighbors left a fun present on our doorstep. Some years I get in a little rut on what to put in our basket besides the candy that everyone gets plenty of on Halloween. Luckily, we found lots of great options this year that I want to share 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 the Halloween decor gets set out it gets snatched up – fast!!! We 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 so many cute toy options that are all extremely affordable!

Target also has an entire booing supplies section on its 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 are an easy no-brainer to add to the basket. Target also had some cute Halloween pencils and magnetic notepads I thought were really cute!

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.

Our basket, stick pumpkins, and vampire’s teeth were all found at the Dollar Tree!
