Halloween Gift Baskets for Kids

Halloween is such a fun holiday, isn’t it? Kids love dressing up and pretending to love all things spooky, plus the colors of the holiday make for even more fun. In our family, it has become a custom to provide the kids with a Halloween gift basket every year. Halloween gift baskets don’t have to only be about candy and treats; you can create simple, yet fun Halloween gift baskets for your kids with small items catering to their current interests. Let me show you the gift baskets I put together for my baby girl and baby boy using fun Halloween items from Walmart!

Halloween Gift Baskets for Kids

My baby girl is recently very much into wearing fun clothing combinations, including funky tights and leggings with skirts. Luckily, during Halloween season you can find a lot of cute tights, from colors rarely found to funky stripes, which are perfect for my girl. I took advantage of the tights found for Halloween costumes and bought my girl a few that she can use year-round. Her Halloween gift basket was completed with seasonal items such as a Halloween cup, Halloween stickers, and a glow bracelet, all in a fun Halloween bucket she can also use for trick-or-treating on Halloween night! (The Halloween bucket was only $1 and comes in a variety of fun designs!)

For my two-year-old baby boy, I put together many of the same items as his big sister: a Halloween cup, stickers, and the glow bracelet, also in a Halloween bucket he had previously seen during a shopping trip to Walmart. I also found him a pair of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pajamas, plus a coloring book and crayons to complete his Halloween gift basket. For both my baby boy and older daughter, I included a pack of Plants vs Zombies fruit snacks as a treat – they’ll get enough candy from trick-or-treating and honestly they don’t eat much of it, so fruit snacks work great for them.

I like that both Halloween gift baskets have items that are fun for the Halloween holiday, yet can be used in the future. Even if some items like the stickers and cups have Halloween designs on them, they’re still good to use year-round. Of course, if you’re into Halloween-specific items, the Halloween section at Walmart has many decorations, costumes, accessories, plus much more for you to enjoy!

Have you ever created Halloween gift baskets for your kids? What items do you like to fill them with?

So cute! Thank you for the idea! Will you be giving them their basket the morning of halloween or did you give it to them prior?

I give them their baskets the morning of Halloween, but either way works!

Been doing the holiday baskets ever since my oldest grandchild was tiny. She is now 14 years old. Love them. Fill them full of unique things and loads of arts and crafts items and kits that are the colors and themes of the holiday.

Yay, I love this! Such a simple, yet fun way to celebrate with the kids.
