Best Halloween Gifts for Kids

Best for Babies & Toddlers

1. Boo Halloween Lift-a-Flap Board Book Ages 0-4 (Peek a Flap) Board book - Lift the flap, July 4, 2017

Reading is a special bonding time between children and parents! Take the time to read about fun Halloween traditions, like jack-o'-lantern carving, trick-or-treating, Halloween costume parties, and more.

Plus, there are fun facts like which country believes black cats are good luck and what candy corn used to be called. Oh, don't act like this book doesn't sound enticing for adults too! This gift idea is perfect for babies, especially if you know you won't be taking them out in the stroller to trick-or-treat!

This best seller is especially exciting since the book has lift-a-flap activities on each page. Your little pumpkin will love their Halloween book. Plus, your baby or toddler definitely doesn't need (and can't be responsible enough to consume candy bars).

2. Halloween Coloring Book for Kids: Halloween Gifts for Kids: Spooky Halloween Activity Book for Kids of All Ages 2-4, 3-5, 4-8, Toddlers

Grab some crayons! These budget-friendly coloring books make for a great Halloween gift for toddlers. Boys and girls will love it.

(More unique gifts for children under five we recommend: Halloween toys, such as Halloween squishies.)

Best for Kids & Teens

3. Extra Large Chocolate Bars - Holiday KING SIZE Bulk Chocolate - Assorted Chocolates Mix, All Your Favorite Chocolate Bars Including M&M, Snickers, Twix and More, 20 Extra Large Bars

You're probably wondering, "WHAT? All of that candy for one kid!?" No! If you have a few, make the kids share. We all know king-size candy bars are truly jaw-dropping at this age, so instead of gifting your teens a small goody bag, let them pig out on some Halloween candy. It's one of the best Halloween gifts for kids they'll never forget.

If you're feeling generous, feel free to pass these out to trick-or-treaters. They will love you forever. Trust me, I still think about the neighbor that passed out HUGE candy bars on Halloween night when I was 10.

(To make things more creative: Buy a tote or Halloween basket to place the candy bars in, and add Halloween temporary tattoos and stickers.)

4. Creativity for Kids Glow In The Dark Rock Painting Kit - Paint 10 Rocks with Water Resistant Glow Paint - Crafts for Kids

DIY Halloween craft night just got even better! If carving pumpkins doesn't sound fun, consider painting spooky rocks. Paint ghouls, Halloween pumpkins, spiders, and more. The Halloween craft kit is only $12.

Best for Teens & College Students

5. Mini Projector, ELEPHAS Portable Projector for iPhone, Video Smart Led Pocket Pico Small Home Phone Projector for Bedroom with Laptop HDMI USB TV AV Interfaces and Remote Control to Watch Cartoon

Okay, so teens (and your college-aged children) will love this projector. They can stream all the Halloween-themed movies and TV shows they want on this mini projector! Movie night is a fun and safe Halloween activity for all ages, but your teenagers will love having the chance to enjoy movie night with you or with friends.

All they need is their phone, internet, and an adapter to stream a movie.

To make this gift more special: Add Disney favorites. Give the kids' a streaming service login so they can watch Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and more!

Grab some Halloween party favors and Halloween decorations so they can host their first Halloween party!

Happy Halloween, y'all!
