No Tricks, Just Treats
If you are searching for great Halloween gifts for children, friends, family, or teachers, look no further. There are a lot of options out there, but how do you know what that person would really enjoy? Here are some great ideas to make this spooktacular day even sweeter.
Cookies are the perfect gift for any occasion, and Halloween is no exception. Find a set of Halloween-themed cookie cutters and whip up a batch of sugar cookie dough.
The next step is to decorate them with royal icing, colored sugar, candy bits, sprinkles, and other goodies. Make them look cute or scary; the choice is yours!
After they've dried or hardened, wrap your yummy Halloween cookies individually or put a few in a treat bag; a great treat for anyone.
Candy Gift Bouquet
Those who don't go out trick-or-treating shouldn't have to miss out on all the fun - or all the treats. Why not create a delicious candy bouquet? It makes a great centerpiece, and snack!
1. Trim the floral foam so it fits inside the container.

Witches Wood Terrarium Kit
Want to go with something different, that most people have never gotten before? This is a great non-candy gift for children of all ages.
This fun kit contains all the plants needed for charms and potions and includes witches' stakes, decals, glow-in-the-dark bugs, planting terrarium, lava rock, giant spider, and five seed packs for basil, catnip, sage, St. John's Wort, and Thyme.
If the potions don't work, you can always season your spaghetti sauce!
