Maggie Bob Wants: Halloween Goodies

October means Halloween – and like many of my friends, this feels like my big holiday of the year. It’s kind of a nice way to usher in the darker days, celebrate seasonal delights, and most importantly of all – dress up and have spooky fun!

I like that Halloween has become such an event, and apart from the bloody/slutty ‘costume in a bag’ offerings, there is a growing market for seasonal goodies – kind of Halloween themed, but worth enjoying all month really. Here’s my picks this year!


Peanuts Snoopy Halloween T | Asda | £8

Snoopy gets spooky but is still the cutest of all the Peanuts gang.


The Pumpkin King Candle | Old Glow Candles (via etsy) | £8.99

Old Glow do a range of movie inspired scented candles, and what better for Halloween than one inspired by Jack Skellington himself?


Blood Choker | Clintons | £2

Looking for an accessory that says “horror movie slasher victim”? This should have you covered. I’m told similar is on sale at Wilkos and Top Shop, but I couldn’t find them online.

dancing-skeleton-tights-squareDancing Skeleton Tights | ASOS | £8

What’s better than loads of happy dancing skeletons on your legs? Ones that glow in the dark of course!

halloween-cookie-pressHalloween Cookie Press | Lakeland | £4.98

I never let an opportunity for themed baking or novelty cookie cutters pass me by. These ones also emboss the dough as the cut, which makes for some brilliant biscuits (that are admittedly more cute than spooky).

dod-skull-buntingSkull Banner | Wilkos | £2.50

I’ll be honest – I usually make my own bunting because, heaven knows, I’ve got enough paperstock lying around begging to be used up. However, even I want to go premade with this intricate Dia de Muertos sugar skull bunting.

What about you guys? Have you found any ‘must haves’ for Halloween this year?
