Halloween Candy and Halloween Gift Baskets: Ghoulishly Good!

comments 0

Halloween is just a month away! Are you ready?

At, we just love celebrating holidays and Halloween is one of our favorites. The costumes, the scares, and of course, the candy, make it all worthwhile. If you love Halloween as much as we do, we bet you’ve already gone out and stocked up your pantry with treats for those little trick or treaters! If not, let be your guide.

Here are our top ten Halloween candies (in no particular order):

1.) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups: We LOVE the combo of chocolate and peanut butter and Reese’s gets it just right with their Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Catch them before the ghouls do by ordering our awesome Happy Halloween Gift Basket.
2.) Snickers Bars: Caramel, chocolate, and peanuts – what could be better? We love to snack on Snickers in between stops on Halloween night.
3.) Skittles: Fruity hard candies that taste as good as Skittles are hard to come by. We just love adding them to our Creepy Candy Bouquets!
4.) M&M’s: Chocolate and hard shelled, these candies are melt-in-your mouth good but don’t worry, they won’t melt in your hands! Make them a must by ordering our Halloween Candy Gift.
5.) Candy Corn: What’s Halloween without candy corn? Gotta have this awesome treat for the holiday!
6.) Mike & Ikes: Chewy and fruity, this Halloween candy makes a welcome addition to any Halloween gift basket or goodie bag.
7.) Nerds: Aren’t Nerds just so yummy? They’re fruity, tangy, and just the right amount of sweet.
8.) Hershey’s Kisses: There’s nothing more classic than a kiss and on Halloween night, we love getting these in our trick or treat bags! Get yours in one of our fun candy bouquets.
9.) Butterfingers: These buttery candy bars are the perfect combination of chocolate and crunch. Get your hands on some in our Boo-tastic Candy Bouquet for an extra special treat.
10.) Twix Bars: Cookie crunchiness with smooth chocolate. Ooo….you’re making us hungry already!

These are just a few of our favorites, but it’s hard to pick when there are just so many varieties! What are you favorite Halloween candies? Do you always give out your favorite treat to trick or treaters?

Celebrate National Dog Week with Dog Gift Baskets and More!

Dog Gift Basket

The fourth week of September is National Dog Week and to celebrate, we have these 10 great ideas! Your dog deserves a little extra lovin’ and attention this month, and we have the perfect ways to give it. You can:

1.) Spend extra time going for walks with your pooch. Walking isn’t just great exercise for you both, but it’s also tons of fun!

2.) Make sure that you keep up with your dog’s regular vet appointments. We all know that things get busy and schedules get hectic, but you should never let your dog’s health fall by the wayside. Keep your dog happy and healthy!

3.) Try to spend at least a 1/2 hour every day playing with your dog. Break out the toys, wrestle, or play fetch in the yard – it’s all up to you!

4.) Give your pup an extra belly rub…or two…or five. You know he deserves it!

5.) Bake your pup some homemade dog treats. It’ll be a great weekend activity and most dog treat recipes are super simple and fast! Then, you’ll have something truly special and made with love to give to your pup during this special week.

6.) Get your dog groomed. He’ll look his best, feel his best, and it’s a way to give your dog a lil’ extra pampering!

7.) Give your dog a gift basket! At, we have a great selection of dog gift baskets that are perfect for gifting during National Dog Week. Choose the one that’s best for your dog!

8.) Have friends that love dogs just as much as you do? Then send a Pet and Owner Gift Basket from our selection too! It’s a great way to show you care while ensuring that every dog in your life gets a little extra lovin’.

9.) Get your dog a new toy or collar. A gift can always get two paws up from your pup!

10.) Cuddle with your dog! It’ll lift your mood while letting your dog know just how much you care. Plus, there’s nothing more perfect than puppy cuddles!

Do you have any other suggestions on how to celebrate National Dog Week? Let us know!
