Happy Halloween everyone! Do you all get a lot of trick-or-treaters? This is our first year in our new neighborhood, so I’m not sure how many we’ll have.
I’m one of “those people” who leaves a basket of candy out with a “Take One Please” sign. I do this for 2 reasons… 1) I don’t feel like lifting my 30 lb. pug every time someone comes to the door, and 2) I’m here by myself and I’m just not big on answering the door ever let alone when I’m home alone… I’m a scaredy cat!
Truth be told, I’m really not big on Halloween. Well, except for the candy. I’ll take any excuse to eat some candy!
Regardless of the fact that it’s not my favorite holiday, I still always make it a point to put a little something together for Chris.
In addition to his Halloween pumpkin, Chris has a gigantic stocking that I fill each Christmas and an Easter basket. (In case you’re wondering, I ordered each personalized item from Pottery Barn Kids probably the first year we were dating!)
Let’s take a little loosky inside this year’s pumpkin…
I didn’t go totally overboard this year, but I did pick up a few of his favorite candies, as well as a new K-Cup flavor for him to try.
Each holiday, candy is my go to for his basket/stocking fillers. Some other good items?
- Gift cards
- Scratch-off lottery tickets
I usually don’t have too much trouble filling the pumpkin or Easter basket; his Christmas stocking, however, is a whole other story! When I said it was gigantic earlier, I wasn’t kidding. I’ll have to remember to take a picture of it this year to show you all!
Do you do anything similar for your significant other? Are you celebrating Halloween? I am – if you count working on grad work as celebrating?! 😉
