Before you start shopping for treats to put in your boo basket, you have to make sure its structure, or should I say bones, fit the vibe you’re going for. If you’re looking for kid-friendly options, you can always opt for a plastic or fabric pumpkin, but if the basket is for your s/o or your bestie, try out a chicer option like the one below. Any basket can be picked up at a local dollar store or Target, so you won’t have to break the bank either.
2. Add a Cozy Touch
Merge the themes of Halloween and fall together by adding some cozy autumn touches. This can include a pair of fuzzy socks or slippers, a fall-themed blanket or a pumpkin-scented candle. If you’re feeling fancy, you can add in a Halloween book. If your boo basket is for an avid “BookTok” reader, pop the Ex Hex by Erin Sterling for a witchy surprise.
3. The Treats Don’t Have to Stop at Candy
Of course, you’ll want to include some iconic Halloween candy into your boo basket, but it doesn’t have to stop there. Simple additions such as caramel popcorn, pumpkin-flavored baking mixes, handcrafted Halloween cookies or bottled pumpkin spice coffee beverages will be sure to elevate the creativity of your basket. The basket below also includes the iconic Dash Pumpkin Mini Waffle Maker, perfect for the morning of a slumber party or breakfast in bed with your boo.
4. Add Some Bath and Body Care
As the seasons change, it's only appropriate to switch out your summer bath and body care scents for some cozier fall picks. Many creators on TikTok have been adding pumpkin body scrubs, apple hand soaps and vanilla bourbon body wash to their boo baskets for an all-around fall vibe.
