Spooky season is almost upon us and now is a great time to start planning this season’s Halloween decor and gifts.

Apart from the traditional trick-or-treating for candies and sweets, not many people think to give other things away. This is especially true for older kids and adults.

A great way to feel like a little kid again is to create gift baskets known as Spooky Baskets that are filled with various Halloween themed gifts like treats, movies, home goods, and of course candy! Of course, these spooky baskets are great for current kids as well!
