It’s been another eerie year for sure but not so scary that the ongoing pandemic will suck the ‘spirit’ out of Halloween. The haunted season is upon us, and the time of ghost town Halloween celebrations are long gone. Mzansi is catching on to this pumpkin-loving, costume-wearing, trick-or-treating tradition! The tradition of finding ghastly and bone-chilling things to do on Halloween in South Africa is slowly gaining momentum. To celebrate all things spooky, we’ve concocted a selection of Halloween gifts that will have you and your ‘fiends’ howling with delight.
Maybe your best friend is obsessed with the holiday and you want to get them ready for trick-or-treating (yes, adults trick-or-treat too!). Maybe they love slaving over a hot cauldron and you want to bring them a fitting gift. From Halloween chocolates and sweets to homeware items available online to themed clothing, these gifts will help your loved ones have a treat-filled, trick-free Halloween 2021. Whether you’re looking for the perfect Halloween present for the adults or kids in your life, these Halloween gift ideas are pretty darn ‘spook’-tastic.
For The Trick-or-treaters
Who says Halloween parties are only meant for kids? On Halloween, one thing is certain. Trick-or-treaters of all ages will want to put on their favourite (or spookiest) Halloween costumes and stroll through the neighbourhood in hopes of scoring some Halloween goodies. As they prepare for a night of tricks and treats, and chocolate sweets – these must-have items make great Halloween gifts for all! Sweets and chocolates are certainly a big part of the Halloween traditions (read: most important).
But, your Halloween-obsessed loved ones will need a Halloween costume gift first! Luckily our range of themed clothing for adults is here to the rescue! And, some of our kids’ gifts come with masks too! You can make anyone feel like a superhero with our cool personalised cape gifts!
These Halloween treats are great for everyone. The adults in your life will ‘goblin’ these up because nothing quite says Halloween quite like chocolate and sweets! Gift them to grown-ups, or as ‘fang’-tastic gifting options for kids! The chocoholics will argue that they can never have enough of it on Halloween. So, be ‘ghoul’ and take the spooky season to the next level with our amazing range of sweets and treats for delivery. We’ve got hat boxes filled to the ‘broom’ with liquorice, wine gums, or jelly teddies. And, trick-or-treat chocolate trays, drowning in Nestlé and Cadbury chocolate goodies, to more luxurious picks for the adults.
We also know that the occasion can be a tad scary for younger kids. Fortunately, we have a variety of plush gifts that will be friends, not a fright! Let the little ghouls and ghosts in your life know you care with Halloween stuffed animals. We love dino’s cute little overbite and funny t-rex arms! And what about something to carry all the candy they’ll be ‘howl’-ing around? Skip the pillowcase (which we also have online) because this year you can opt to have the teddy delivered in a tote bag. And, these Halloween trick-or-treat bags can be personalised with their name, too!
For The One with the ‘Poison’
Are they all about toasting to the spooky season? For South Africans, Halloween is just another reason to throw a ‘jol’ (as if we needed one). And, in a costume! We know there is a drink for every occasion. So if you know they’ll be in the mood for something ‘boo’-zy for Halloween, these creepy-cool Halloween alcohol gifts are what you need. Some might find liqueurs and spirits scary, but we know it’s actually awesome and should be enjoyed more.
Use this Halloween as an excuse to get your loved ones spine-tingling tequila gifts. They are even presented in a seasonal skull design. The scariest thing about these spirits is how easy they go down.
They’re a parent! Chances are they believe there is nothing more terrifying than the idea of enduring an endless barrage of begging children without a decent drink in hand (severed or otherwise). Thankfully, our Halloween wine gifts are made for them! In fact, a great Halloween wine gift can make adulting even more fun. So, take a look at our wine selection – if you dare – and cast your eyes upon the most bewitching boozes around. Wine is easy to carry, gets the job done and if it’s red, it looks ‘bloody’ appropriate.
Halloween really is the perfect excuse to indulge. For some, that means chowing down on some sweet treats. For others, it means embracing their whimsical side with costumes and decor. And for others, it means getting their boo-‘ze’ on with some over-the-top cocktails. But there’s no reason that spooky sips should be relegated to only those who want a little buzz. Luckily, we’ve got non-alcoholic drinks too! You can still put a spell on your ‘fiends’ with a non-alcoholic Halloween drink, just pick your poison!

Roses are traditionally the flower of love. But black roses are something super magical. They have been preserved (like a mummy!) so that they can last for up to 6 months! They’ll add a touch of elegance to any Halloween party. Help them take their home to the next level with a stunning Halloween floral arrangement featuring the most beautiful flower gifts for sameday delivery out there.
Whether they’re into something subtle like cherry brandy roses and other classic flowers or prefer to fully lean into the theme with black roses for Halloween, you’ll find an option here that works well for their personal taste and décor style. So, add ‘darkness’ to their display and elevate the Halloween ambiance by adding scary blooms for the season.
One of the easiest ways to add a little Halloween spirit to their home for a dinner party is with a festive, clever Halloween doormat. Their doormat is basically the first impression their guests get when they arrive at their homes. So, it only makes sense to switch it out when Halloween comes and exchange it with something that’s a little bit spookier. Or at least, on theme. From black cats to pumpkins, these doormat gift ideas will thrill them and are perfect for making their front door just a little extra creepy (or cute) in honour of the holiday. Dinner guests and trick-or-treaters alike are sure to appreciate them!
Whether you and your ghoulish group are brave enough to venture outdoors on All Hallows’ Eve or you know someone who’s planning a Halloween dinner party – our list of frightfully ‘fang’-tastic Halloween gifts are sure to send you on a ‘witch’ hunt. No tricks just treats for everyone. Celebrate the spooky season with these magical Halloween gifts for all from NetFlorist!
