11 Spook-tactular gifts for Halloween - no tricks only treats!

Halloween, it’s the time of year that I honestly don’t get the chance to enjoy anywhere near as much as I’d like to these days. As a kid growing up on a new housing estate the community feel around seasonal holidays was always amazing. Houses dressed to impress with generous neighbours who always told you to grab a handful of sweets instead of just one. Nowadays I haven’t so much as had 1 trick or treater the last 5 or so years, which when you spent your childhood living several doors away from an American family who always made the most of this holiday, it feels like it somehow falls a little flat.

So in between now and having kids of my own, I’m feeding my need for a little spookiness with some bloody good treats for you all (every pun intended)! I’m going to have your eyeballs popping out with all the goodies I’ve got on show for you in the ‘Spook-tacular’ Halloween Gift Guide!

With that being said, let’s get stuck into the meat of this post – with maybe a few bones thrown in the mix as well.
