Trick or treat! There’s no rule that says the tricks up your sleeve have to be sugar-laden candy this haunting season. In fact, kids (of all ages!) will adore a number of totally customizable goodies more than yet another mini pack of Junior Mints. |
This Halloween, prepare for your long trek around the neighborhood in style — or give your neighbors something to smile about by offering up a treat that doesn’t come with a side of sugar rush.
For starters, make sure you have extra batteries for your flashlight and a travel-friendly emergency pack if you’re taking little ones trick-or-treating. A few streetlights will probably be burned out, and falls and scrapes can happen. High visibility and a fast recovery from a minor slip and fall is rule No. 1 for Halloween.
The Most Popular House on the Block
Customize some grabber warmers in lieu of candy, and you’ll be a real lifesaver. Choose any spooky image or message you’d like, and rest easy knowing you’ve done your part to help little fingers around the neighborhood keep toasty while hustling for candy. Just be careful — parents might notice this in-demand giveaway and ask for their own treat! Jimmy’s Ultra Dew lip balm is another great option, especially with sensitive winter skin starting to act up. Playing cards are the perfect accessory for when everyone returns home to count their treats. Nothing pairs better with candy rations than a raucous game of gin rummy, especially when you’ve personalized the deck to feature monsters, bats or witches.
For the Big Kids
If you’re on Halloween duty this year, make sure you take care of yourself as well as the kids. Get those energy supplements ready to go, because there’s only so much boost you can get from a mini Snickers. A shot of 5-Hour Energy or another booster can give you the stamina of a kid on Halloween, which is exactly what the adults in the party need. Coming prepared with your own grabber warmers, rib knit hats, and thick boot socks for everyone is a great tactic to make sure the night doesn’t get cut short.
Depending on where you’ll be trick-or-treating, you might want to up the ante a bit with a ski mask. Not only will it keep you toasty, but pair it with the right outfit and you’ll have a bona fide Halloween costume ready to go. Who says you can’t be scary and comfortable at the same time? After all, how many monsters do you know tottered around in wedge heels, coiffed hair, or tailored suits when they were taking care of business (Dracula excluded, of course)?
The Grand Finale
Jack-o’-lanterns, haunted corn mazes and spooky movies are just the beginning. Ensure this Halloween is the best yet with Cat Crap (yes, that’s the real name) anti-fog lens cleaner — a must for anyone in your group wearing glasses. Stock up on tissues for runny noses, insect repellant if you’re still battling mosquitoes and don’t forget the sunscreen if you’re getting an early start. A safe, comfortable Halloween is what memories are made of.
