This post shows you the best spooky basket ideas.
First things first. A spooky basket is a gift basket with cute Halloween items you give to your boyfriend, girlfriend, or friends.
Things to include in a boo basket could be a Halloween-themed mug, favorite candy, cute picture of the two of you, and maybe a movie or a fun game.
A spooky basket can be anything you want it to be! Cozy holidays like Halloween are always a fun opportunity to surprise your significant other.
What to put in a spooky basket
- Favorite candy
- Starbucks gift card
- Decorative Halloween items like pumpkins or a stuffed animal (this bat, for example. SO cute)
- Cozy mug or to-go cup
- Socks and slippers
- Scented candle
Good things to include in a spooky basket also depend on the person you’re giving it to. But I think most people like candy and chocolate. So that’s a good start.
Guys don’t like to admit it, but they also like scented candles and comfy slippers. You can include self-care items like a spa headband or mud mask for your girlfriend.
Use lots of orange in your basket to stay true to the Halloween theme! A simple pumpkin bucket is a great base for a spooky basket.
Spooky basket ideas
1. Add a picture to your spooky basket
If you’re giving a spooky basket to your boo, include a cute picture of the two of you! Other favorites to include are chocolate, Halloween candy, a cute note, and maybe the ingredients of their favorite drink.
2. Things to put in a spooky basket
Two items that are always great to put in spooky baskets are socks and a to-go cup. Use orange filling paper to make the box look more festive.

3. Boo basket with Halloween crocs
When looking at trendy spooky basket ideas, I saw a lot of baskets including crocs as a gift!! Ahaha, not your most fashionable item, but they sure are comfy. You can also get Halloween charms to decorate them.
A cozy Halloween throw blanket and a candle are also great things to put in a spooky basket.
4. Spooky basket with candy and Halloween gifts
Fun orange items to put in a spooky basket are pumpkin led lights, a soap dispenser, and orange candy like tic tacs or Reese’s.

A cute Halloween card elevates the gift basket! Place candy at the bottom, then stack the gifts like socks, mugs, and other things on top.
This spooky basket is small but mighty! So easy to put together yet leaves a big impression on the receiver :).
6. Boo basket with cute quotes
Make your spooky basket gift personalized by decorating the bucket or basket with letter stickers. Write down a Halloween phrase or your boos’ name.

LOVE this spooky basket! Girls will obsess over this. Two things I don’t think you can go wrong with for a spooky basket for your girlfriend are fuzzy slippers and a cute mug.
If she’s into a specific skincare brand (that you know of), you can also include some self-care items.

An easy way to spice up a basket for Halloween is to use filling paper! This makes the gifts inside look more special. Halloween-themed cupcake toppers also help to decorate the basket.
I like how this basket also includes the name of the receiver! Makes it extra special.

Apparently, Crocs are THE item to put into spooky baskets in 2022! If you include a pair of Crocs or slippers, don’t forget to get some Halloween socks too.

Are you making a spooky basket for friends this year? Must-haves are their favorite chocolate, candy, and a scented candle. Preferably pumpkin spice.
20. Orange-themed spooky basket
Reese’s are a favorite to include in spooky baskets for two reasons. 1) they are delicious, and everyone likes them! and 2) the wrappings are orange, so it fits the Halloween aesthetic.
Also, I found this ghost stuffed animal, and it’s the cutest thing ever!!

Another fun way to decorate a spooky basket is with balloons! You can get Halloween-themed balloons on Amazon.
