Scary Smellies

Cast a spell at bathtime with these sparkling, shimmertastic goodies from Lush. They have a range of Halloween inspired bath bombs and fizzes to warm up winter nights. We are particularly impressed by the Wizard bubble bar (the cute one in the corner) which contains popping candy and the relaxing fragrance of Ylang Ylang and the rather sweet fairy Ring mushroom soap above it which actually contains extract of shitake mushrooms . Of course you can't have halloween without a pumpkin; if you're not a fan of eating them, we guarantee you'll love Lush's glittering pumpkin bubble bar; crumble under running water for an uplifting and exotic soak.
From £3.25, available from Lush shops,

Bizarre Bats 


Nanananananannanaaaa Bat Mug! Even caped crusaders need a tea break. Ideal for those Dark Nights, this mug proves it's a real hero, especially as it has ceramic wing handles and can be put in the microwave, which basically means you can be drinking a cuppa and saving the world in mere seconds. Our favourite beverage to drink out of this beauty however is mulled wine; the rich, dark red colour makes it seem as though you're sipping warm blood. Yum!
£10 from Very

Kooky Cookies

Obviously you can't gift a Bat Mug without something to dunk in the tea...The Biscuiteers have themed cookies for every single occasion. In you ever have the pleasure of going to visit their Notting Hill Biscuit Cafe and Shop you'll be utterly amazed, it's like a gallery of edible artwork. If on the other hand you can't get there, all their creations can be ordered and shipped anywhere around the world. We were looking for Halloween inspiration but couldn't not include these rather snazzy skull, 'Day of The Dead' biccies too.
