Materials Needed for Halloween Boo Basket or Bucket
Yes, I tossed in an OR because sometimes we have extra baskets on hand from another gifting, Some love boxes, some love bags, and some love buckets variety is the spice of life! I would rather you use a container you have than go out and buy one!
After all, “A penny saved is a penny earned.”
If you are looking for special containers, here are a few ideas where to find some good ones and some cheap ones!

Halloween Candy Bucket
I find local Halloween candy buckets at Target, Walmart, or Amazon. I grabbed a couple of colorful ones at Target on my last Target Spree! You may find cute buckets, Dollar Tree, Michael’s, and Joann’s Fabric.
I am talking about the super simple orange, and sometimes blue and pink hard plastic buckets, usually with some kind of ghost or pumpkin image on the front. They range from about a dollar to around three bucks. Not bad to hold goodies, and later used as a candy bucket because it has that convenient handle attached.
Recycle an Easter basket for this gift idea, choose baskets you can use the entire year for your Halloween night treat bucket, or even use a storage pail from the local hardware store.
I also am using this one from Amazon as a gift for my teenager who loves Halloween.
Y’all, I am not kidding, since he was old enough to search google for costumes he has been planning his every year right after Christmas. He loves scary films during this spooky season, so I might throw in a “fright” mask in case he hits the local houses for candy, because you know candy is a big draw even for teens!
Children’s Halloween Costumes in the Bucket
You may want to skip the PJs and add books and a new costume with a matching character bucket if you can find one! Imagine adding this surprise to your child’s bedroom with some treat candy and the books as part of a NEW but soon-to-be favorite tradition!
Honestly, do what makes you happy, you know your kiddos better than anyone!
