Late night window-shopping on the world wide web can be a dangerous past time. Case in point: I recently ended up with a foot massager. Did I need it? That’s debatable. Was it worth it? Yes.
So in honor of the impending holiday (hey, hey Halloween) I’ve accrued a list of seasonal goodies that you may not need, but will most definitely want. Warning: Do not read this post when your shopping defenses are down.
You may not necessarily need to greet trick-or-treaters with a metal Halloween plaque, but wouldn’t it be cooler if you did? This black-and-white plaque has a decorative typeface that’s retro and spooky, making it the perfect touch to your “haunted” house, indoors or out.
Love to scare the pants off the neighborhood kids? Then this is one lawn ornament you’ll definitely daydream about. It’s weather resistant, easy to assemble and lights up for a spectacular scream-worthy effect.
If you were under the impression that a baby dressed up like a bee was the cutest thing ever invented, let me introduce you to a baby dressed up like a caterpillar. This wee costume is so ridiculously adorable I might buy it and I don’t even have children. So watch out friends with kids, I may try to dress up one of your toddlers like an insect.
For those who can’t get enough of the sweet stuff during the month of October (this gal included), there’s a Yankee Candle that’s scented like candy corn. Light one and your whole house will smell like sugary goodness. Not to be dramatic, but this candle proves that dreams do come true.
These flameless luminaries look great lining the driveway, sidewalk or walkway. That said, if you don’t necessarily need any more outdoor Halloween decor, you can always justify this purchase as a safety precaution — you don’t want trick-or-treaters tripping on their way up to your house (wink, wink).
Hosting a Halloween dinner? Then you’ll definitely be tempted to trick (or treat) out your table with this spider web style table cloth. It’s creepy and cool and definitely not for the squeamish (insert evil cackle here).
I’m not sure that there is ever a moment when someone needs a giant LED spider. However, putting this big guy on your front lawn will definitely put you in contention for coolest yard on the block.
