This might well have been the strangest year you have lived yet but you know what, some things never change. Such as what? Halloween being the most spook-tacular night of the year! Think about it, you get to dress up as a pop culture superhero, you get to carve a pumpkin to pieces and light a Jack-o-lantern, and you get to hit up strangers for treats against the somewhat sinister assumption that if they don’t oblige, you’ll play a trick on them. What could be better than that!
One thing is for sure, on this particular night, everyone in the family has a ball. It doesn’t matter if you’re a teenager, a toddler, a parent or even a grandparent, Halloween brings out the best in all of us. It's full of generous gestures and fun and, yes, a little bit spooky too, all at the same time and in the right measure.
This year we all need a great Halloween party like never before, so we've prepared this guide with the most original costume ideas and a good deal for your every need. Take a look below and get ready to celebrate in style without having to give up a pretty penny.
Discount Codes and Deals for Your Scary Halloween Party Needs
Let’s get this right, Halloween isn’t the same without trick or treating. It’s just the way it is. Christmas isn’t the same without a Christmas tree and summer without a beach is simply incomplete. The grass is green, the sky is blue and you won’t enjoy the true essence of Halloween unless you trick or treat.
So for your Halloween party, you’re going to have to plan an outing around the block and play the game. Use these amazing Cherryz offers to get the coolest themed tote bags for your goodies, and add one or two decorations for your home in the process.
Because let’s face it, no party is complete without a bit of atmosphere, and we don’t just mean dimming the lights. Take advantage of our great Wayfair discount codes and decorate your home like a pro for very moderate prices. You can get anything from chrome skull goblets to ceramic cut-out pumpkin decorations.
Scary or not, your party won’t go far if you don’t get plenty of food and drinks to keep everyone happy. Make the most of the Iceland Halloween offers and get sensational discounts on your gourmet dinner. And pair that with our best House of Malt discounts to pay as little as possible when you stock up on all your wine and spirits for a long and happy night.
Halloween Makeup Ideas - Kids, Family and Cheap!
One of the best things about Halloween is that for a night (and for one night only!) it’s okay to dab all sorts of paint on your face and channel your inner glam rock star self for a good purpose. But if you think that getting a face painting kit is a little over the top, there are some good alternatives. Eye shadow is one of them. Lots of it. In fact, so much of it that you’ll need a whole new eyeshadow palette. Luckily they can be had for cheap with these Notino Halloween offers.
Cat Halloween Makeup - Clown Halloween Makeup
These are two of the most popular and easy Halloween makeup ideas. Drawing a cat face isn’t just the simplest thing in the world, it’s also a very versatile option. All you need is a good (spare) eyeliner, which you can get with a discount from Cult Beauty, and some imagination. While cat faces can be cute, sexy, or actually quite nasty, clowns are just creepy. Which is precisely why they make for great Halloween ideas. It might be a little more effort to pull it off, but it’ll be all worth it in the end, trust us!
Halloween Costumes - Deals for Kids and the Family
If you’re going to get fully into the festive mood, then you’re going to have to come up with some ideas for an original Halloween costume. For a general notion, you could do worse than checking our Clothing category. You’ll find lots of merchants there with a wide array of promotions specifically geared to fulfil your fancy dress needs right now.
A great idea is to get group costumes for the whole family. For instance, ghosts or skeletons are classic examples of how you can combine variations on the same theme to suit adults and children alike. Or you could have mom and dad gear up as an angel and the devil. There’s many combinations you can try to include everyone in the family, from the Adams Family to Alice in Wonderland. A good place to explore this and other alternatives is our Argos Halloween promotions page.
Kids Halloween Costumes - Scariest Deals
Kids love to dress up, and this is a fabulous opportunity to indulge them in a perfectly acceptable context. Kids Halloween costume ideas go from the most basic DIY costumes to the most elaborate possibilities. Just remember that, at the end of the day, an old bedsheet with two holes for eyes already turns your kid into a ghost! If this is your baby’s first Halloween, you can shop at Carter’s with these great festive season voucher codes and get anything from a two-piece pumpkin bodysuit to themed cotton PJs at excellent prices.
Trick or Treat: Don't Miss Out on the Best Deals and Discounts for Your Halloween Snacks and Sweets.
It’s only fair to give as good as you get, really, which is why you need to have a big bowl of sweets at the ready in your house for whenever the kids and your neighbours come around trick or treating. You’ve had your fun doing the rounds and got that tote bag full to the rim with Halloween sweets but that doesn’t mean you get to recycle those same sweets when others come knocking at your door!
Even if you choose to miss out on a trick or treat spin around the block (though why in the world would you!) make sure you go for a replenishing run at your local store and have loads of goodies for your visitors. If you claim some of these Tesco discount codes, it will cost you little money and even less time, and it’s the decent thing to do. Because, at the end of the night, Halloween is a time to celebrate together, to be generous, imaginative and also a little bit spooky, but above all to give out and receive joy in bundles.
