Spooky Fun! Halloween Gift Ideas
Get ready for spooky season! We love Halloween here at Maia, that's why we have put together our favourite Halloween gift ideas.
Halloween has been around for a Millennium! Its origins can be traced back to the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain. It was believed that on that day the souls of the dead returned to their homes, so people dressed in costumes and lit bonfires to ward off spirits. In this way, popular Halloween tropes such as witches, ghosts and goblins became associated with it.
If you love this holiday as much as we do and had your costume ready for ages, then our Halloween favourites are perfect for you.
So fill your home with spine-chilling fun, creepy crawlers and ghostly presence!
We admit Amuseable Pumpkin is not very scary but this cute Halloween staple will provide you with lots of cuddles while watching a horror movie.
Pumpkins are a symbol of Autumn and of course the spooky season. Traditionally people in Europe used to carve demonic faces into turnips but when the tradition was brought to America, Pumpkins started to be used as they were native there. Today we can't imagine Halloween without a spooky jack-o-lantern!
Spooky Greta Gremlin is the perfect companion for the spooky season! Don't worry she is more of a Mogwai than a Gremlin. She is dressed to impress in her cute witch's outfit and loves a bit of mischief and magic.
Bring a bit of creepy cuteness to your home! These quirky soft toys are a great addition this Halloween. Skeleton Bob is inspired by the unique Calacas masques of the Mexican Día de Muertos.
Anoraknid Black Spider looks like he just stepped out of a Tim Burton film. Even an arachnophobe would have to admit how cute this smiley creature is.
Enjoy your favourite Halloween inspired drink in this Eat, Drink & Be Scary Stemless Glass. It is the perfect glassware for an unearthly Halloween dinner party!
It is time to bring some magic to your home! Our Wild Drinks Recipe Book is a comprehensive introduction to infusing, brewing and fermenting that will connect you with nature.
The Witch's Home Book will provide you with rituals, crafts, meditations and magical practices and an introduction to the Wicca life.
If a seance sounds like a really scary idea to you and even watching 'Casper' keeps you awake at night, then we have a more playful option for your Halloween party! This Dead Celeb Card Game is perfect for an evening of connecting to the dead and celebrating your favourite celebs!
It couldn't be Halloween without a black cat! Traditionally black cats have been suspected of being the familiars of witches, or shape-shifting witches themselves. This Grinning Cat in Tutu Decoration captures that idea perfectly. We are thinking 'Beetlejuice' meets 'Black Swan'.
After the celebration of the dead, spirits and all things eerie you may feel like you need new energy in your home. Smudge sticks are a great way to achieve that. They are made from bundles of herbs and have been used for centuries to cleanse a person, space or object of negative energy.
We hope our Halloween picks gave you some great ideas to turn your home into a proper haunted mansion! Check out our full Halloween collection for more.
Spooky Love, Team Maia xxx
