Halloween is a big event in the Hobbis household – largely because I love it. The husband is not convinced but nevertheless he has to put up with us decorating the house with all manner of fake cobwebs and, of course, our skeleton, Mr Bones, puts in his annual appearance.
Now you could spend an absolute fortune on Halloween paraphernalia so I make sure I invest in a few pieces that will stand the test of time and will survive multiple Halloweens.
Red Candy is a brilliant place for finding things like this and below I’ve listed just some of my favourites. Plus I have a great giveaway for those of you who like to raise a glass of something spooky to toast any ghosts, zombies or witches who may have crossed your path.
Red Candy Stranger Things Cushion
Inspired by the highly acclaimed Netflix show, Stranger Things, this colourfully designed features silhouettes of the kids on their bikes with the upside down below them, showing the menacing Demogorgon.
Printed in yellow and green print, the cushion is made from a soft and durable faux suede and is filled with a feather pad. The cushion is 42 x 42 cm and machine washable at 30c.
Red Candy Day Of The Dead Skull Decanter
The Day of the Dead Skull Decanter is the ideal place to store those old bottles of cheap whisky sat on the side gathering duster. It is made from glass and has a cork as its top and a capacity of 700 ml which means it can store a full bottle of your favourite tipple. Hand-wash only.
Red Candy Suck UK Skeleton Hand Jewellery Tidy
This macabre skeleton hand design from Suck UK is certainly an interesting way of keeping all your jewellery to hand. This bony hand can hold anything from watches to rings and from bracelets to earrings. Plus each digit moves independently so you can reposition them to suit your storage needs – e.g. hanging a necklace. This “handy” helper can also store earrings, coins, keys, and trinkets in the wooden dish at the bottom.
Red Candy Poison Whiskey Decanter
This eye-catching liquor decanter from Balvi features a three-dimensional hollow glass skull suspended in the centre of the bottle. It will hold a litre of your favourite poison – whiskey, gin or cognac and would be a real talking point at any Halloween party. It’s dishwasher safe too.
Red Candy Doomed Shot Glass
To go with your Poison Whiskey Decanter, why not serve your spirits in one of these? Made from hand-blown borosilicate glass, these quirky glasses have an outside which is larger than a normal shot glass and is easier to hold. The inside glass is moulded into a skull shape which holds the liquor and, depending on the colour of your chosen shot, different parts of the skull’s detail will be highlighted.
