There are so many ways to live your spookiest, best Halloween life. Once you have your killer costume in your closet, your scary movie marathon planned out, and all the fun-sized candy you could want on hand, there’s another way to have an even more spooktacular October than ever before. To help spread the scary spirit to your friends, there are some great beauty boo basket ideas out there for the most glam gift ever.
When I was growing up, my family called them “Hauntings,” but a boo basket is pretty much a Halloween-themed care package you send to anyone you think deserves a little extra treat. And hopefully, that person sends along their own boo basket to surprise someone else, until you’ve started a full-on chain of Halloween gift-giving. From Halloween-themed bath bombs to ghoulish makeup, there are a ton of beauty products out there that make perfect fillers in the boo baskets for all the makeup lovers in your life.
