Add the costs of decoration, meals, and parties to the ever-exploding expenditures of the holiday and you’ll find yourself worrying. However, there’s no reason to fret as you can always celebrate on a budget by simply being wise with how much you spend and where you do so.

Halloween is an exciting event for children in particular because it means they get to roam outdoors with their friends wearing fun costumes and collecting candies. To store all the toffees and chocolates that they’re going to get as part of the trick-or-treating ritual, they need bags. So, it makes sense that we have treat bags with Halloween prints on our Halloween gifts guide for kids. 

4 – Candy jar

Another lovely present that is on our Halloween gifts guide for kids is a candy jar. A spooky candy jar would help your child keep his treats safe in a box that he likes. It’s a lot more fun to celebrate the event by placing treats in such jars rather than storing them in paper or plastic bags. Even once Halloween is over, the jar can be used to keep different collectibles. 

5 – Board games

A fun gift that wouldn’t burden your pocket are board games. You can give your children a snakes-and-ladders game or scrabble. Board games are good to boost the brain’s working so you can also play with your child. A game such as scrabble can be a great resource to teach your kids some vocabulary too. If you want you can also get Halloween-themed games. 

6 – Pumpkin night light

Night lights make for an amazing gift since they make the room look so much better along with amply brightening it at nighttime. Children especially like night lights as they don’t prefer their room to be completely dark at bedtime. That said, if your child is creeped out by spooky characters it may not be a good idea to give him a scary pumpkin night light.

7 – Cat earrings
