Let's Make it a Bright & Happy Halloween
There is no doubt that Halloween is getting bigger in the UK each year. I know in the States it’s always been a big deal, they embrace Halloween and adorn their houses with decorations and wear the most amazing costumes. Years ago when I was a child Halloween wasn’t really a thing. You certainly didn’t go trick or treating like the kids do now. My Mum always made it fun though, we’d get a pumpkin to decorate and my brothers and I would dress up.
THE GIFT HALLOWEEN GUIDE
For the first time ever, I have created my own Halloween product. The idea is that you can send it direct to a friend or loved one. I know I will be missing seeing some of my friend's children dressed up this year and I’m already sad that I won’t see my nephews' cute little faces. So, I plan on sending them a little personalised gift instead with my new Halloween lolly gift sets. And because I want to put a smile on everyone's faces, I have gone BRIGHT! I am making this Halloween a colourful one. My gift sets are decorated with colourful pom poms and have a little personalised rainbow tag - the symbol of positivity and hope throughout this pandemic. The lollies are covered in a little gift bag which comes as either a ghost, monster or pumpkin.
Some other gift ideas to send direct are…..

I hope this guide helps you to make Halloween 2020 a good one - lets make it a bright and colourful halloween to remember!
Love the nostalgia in this and also the reminder that Halloween can be so much fun for kids. Great links and ideas to help make it brilliant too! Thanks
Love it all!! It’s given me lots of ideas for helping the kids get over the disappointment of not getting the bags of sweets they’ve got used to!
Not a bad thing at all, time to reset and put things into prospective perhaps 😊🎃
