It's creepy... it's crawly... it's time for Halloween gift ideas!
Once upon a time, I found myself less than interested in Halloween. What a sad thing that was... I guess I'd grown out of the whole trick-or-treating thing and I just couldn't see the magic anymore.
What turned it around for me? Taking the time to get into the Spirit of Halloween through crafts and teats made with imagination.
Having my own kids may have helped too... (wink, wink)
These days I look forward to Halloween. I can't wait to ask my kids what themes they want to focus on each year.
Halloween is a great excuse to rev up your imagination with homemade decorations and extremely CREATIVE homemade Halloween treats.
Below you'll find a few of the things I've made for homemade Halloween gifts...
Halloween Gift Baskets are a fun way to get creative... and they don't have to cost much. The first thing I do is run to the dollar store to pick up a few festive Halloween treats, some glow sticks and toy creepy crawlies.
I've include several suggestions for your Halloween gift baskets and categorized them into Halloween themes...
Trick-or-Treating Kit, Dress-up Fun, Halloween Baking, Halloween Party fun, etc.
Try making Halloween gift basket for your kids, grandchildren, friends, teachers or co-workers!

Here's a creative Halloween party bag idea you can use with that great big stack of paper lunch sacks in the cupboard. Make just one bag to hold a special creepy homemade Halloween gift or make several to give for Halloween party grab bags.
