2016 Halloween Picks

Halloween Picks from Lindsay Stephenson

White Pumpkin /Haunted Eyeball Door Bell * / Skull Candy Jar / Keep Out Vintage Sign / Halloween Enamel Pins / Trick Or Treat Cookie Cutters / Gypsy Witch Fortune Cards / Skeleton Mask for Kids 

I’m OBSESSED with the doorbell (see a video here) and although Target has the best price, it is out of stock. (I shake my fist at you Target!) But with a little sleuthing I found it on Amazon (no shipping to Canada I’m afraid, though) and also on Ebay where I grabbed one for our house and paid way too much for it, but I justified the purchase with the fact that I rarely buy new halloween decor for our house.

A little talk about halloween costumes and, sensitive kids. I’m always excited when I see Halloween costumes for kids that are low stress. Oscar never warmed to the idea of a major costume, and as I think I’ve mentioned in previous years it’s always hit or miss to whether he’ll want to get dressed up. If you have a kiddo like mine, I have to tell you – Skeleton Pajamas like these or these are FANTASTIC as they 1. aren’t an investment so should your child decide not to go out then they are literally pajamas you can use. Plus I find #2 – the fact that they are super simple and not a “costume” means it doesn’t bother a child who maybe doesn’t want to stand out, is shy, or just reluctant. Seriously. Buy skeleton pajamas. With that being said, I saw these at Land of the Nod (they do ship to Canada) and fell for the bat wings – and then fell down a rabbit hole of saving pictures of pretty much all their costumes. Again, I liked these as they seem low stress and, like they wouldn’t be a huge change for a kiddo who maybe doesn’t want to go *all out*. They are SO cute. Check them out here.

    Have you shipped from Target to Canada before? How was the shipping rate? Did you get dinged with duties?

    I am really not liking how we are defaulting to their international site when browsing from Canada. Their US site is far better to navigate. Oh, I lament for when they were up North. 🙁

      I’ve had things shipped to my US mailbox – I use a company called CBI, where you get a mailbox address and you pay per parcel you pick up, as opposed to a monthly fee. I go down a few time a year, and pick up my parcels or if you know someone else going, they are allowed to pick up on your behalf if they have your permission. 🙂 And I miss Target. 🙁

        I should do that. My in-laws in Niagara Falls, it would be oh-so convenient.

    Why don’t those PJ sets exist for adults? I’d wear one of those skeleton sets! My sister has bought Carters and Gap pjs for her four kids over the years, and they’ve all held up well.
