If tacky and expensive Halloween clobber that is only used once is something you could live without, then we come up with some buys that are both ghoulish and stylish in time for scary season, and which can be enjoyed long after 31st October has ended. Check out our top picks for Halloween.
Your little one will look scary, scarily cool in this emblazoned Day of the Dead skull varsity jacket. Featuring a soft knitted collar and cuffs and contrast sleeves, the design has the benefit of big white poppers that make it easy for your little ones to do up themselves.
This dress can be worn comfortably as a Halloween fancy dress costume, or as a fun every day dress, and we’re all for spending money on things our of which our children can get lots of wear. Made from soft black baby cord with a handmade face complete with pink nose and whiskers, the dress also features two adjustable buttons, so it will grow with your child. Even better.
A classic children’s book, beloved by both parents and their children for decades now, it tells the story of Max, a little boy whose room becomes a jungle and who sails and sails until he reaches a land where the wild things live. It’s slightly scary, but in all the right ways, with a happy ending and some fantastic illustrations.
The best – and we mean the best – first shoes for baby, these soft leather, non-slip shoes are the next best thing to bare feet for new walkers. For Halloween, we have our eye on this spider design, though we’re not sure they’re going to be scaring anyone… more like melting hearts. Coo.
Unleash your own little batman with this Halloween hoodie, complete with wings and pointed ears. He or she will love swooping round the playground and surprising people by suddenly raising his arms and sprouting wings. Great fun all year round.
Handmade in the UK, this original cushion offers a nod to All Souls Day while adding a vibrant, colourful touch to a children’s play area, or even mum and dad’s sofa. It’s not all about the kids, you know.
Team this with a witch’s hat and some fake blood and we’re pretty sure your youngster will do some frightening this Halloween. Of course, the rest of the year, it can still be worn as a fun and practical sweatshirt, which is all-round plus in our book.
