Now, I’m not a huge camping fan myself but if you are, then I can’t think of a better pair of socks to bring with you.

For the Jewelry Lover

One of my favorite Etsy shops in the world is TheEclecticBootique. Despite the vast collection of fantastic options, I recommend these handmade Leatherface earrings. For $11.99 these little weirdos make an adorable stocking stuffer for that vintage horror aficionado in your life. 

Does that jewelry lover in your life have too much jewelry? Are they always whining about losing their rings? And, most importantly, are you tired of hearing about it? TexasCeramics on Etsy has the solution! Slip them a crisp $25 and get this set of skeleton hand ring holders. With weighty fingers, so they don’t topple over, these little devils will add a nice macabre element to any creep’s home. 

Elvira, professional Mistress of the Dark, has always been a snazzy dresser. So it’s no surprise that her official jewelry collection– courtesy of Sweet Jewelry– is so appealing to ghouls like her. This delightful Vampire Bat Bracelet is delicate statement that will have great appeal during a formal event or just your everyday. Starting at $39 this bracelet comes in bewitching bronze or sultry silver.

For the Book Nerd

One of the most important film franchises in horror movie history is Wes Craven’s Nightmare on Elm Street series. Never Sleep Again is written by Thommy Hutson, with a foreword by Wes Craven himself, and is a deep dive into the making of the 1984 masterpiece. Including dozens of exclusive cast and crew interviews this is an essential read for fans of Hollywood’s favorite dream demon. Available at all major booksellers, including Amazon, for $15.99.

In 1978, Laurie Strode survived an encounter with Michael Myers, a masked figure who killed her friends and terrorized the town of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night. Myers was later gunned down, apprehended and committed to Smith’s Grove State Hospital. For forty years, memories of that nightmarish ordeal have haunted Laurie and now Myers is back once again on Halloween, having escaped a routine transfer, leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. This time, Laurie is prepared with years of survival training to protect herself, her daughter Karen and her granddaughter Allyson, a teenager separated from her family and enjoying Halloween festivities.

No, you aren’t seeing things. Along with a new movie fans of Halloween have been gifted with the official movie novelization. Halloween: The Official Movie Novelization is for sale wherever you get your books for $7.99.

Home Decor

After a long day of being an adult it’s nice to come home and get comfortable. Why not snuggle up to a cute cushion? This eldritch zombie plush makes for the perfect companion to watch over you while you sleep. But, like, totally not in a creepy way. Let’s face it UNEEDA this in a bad way! At only $26.99 what could go wrong?

One of the essentials of any good movie marathon is a comfy blanket. Grab the popcorn and wrap yourself up in this throw blanket with a replica of a Goosebumps book cover on it. It’s 60″ x 40″, its fleece material makes it super duper soft and just looks cool. And for $34.99 it could be all yours.
