Halloween is now becoming quite a popular holiday here in the UK. Lots of people have spooky parties (and why not!) and more and more are putting up a few decorations or sending a Halloween card or two.
Here are ten fun gifts from talented Etsy sellers that may be just what you are looking for this spooky season. Whether to give to someone close, or to keep all for yourself, check out these ghoulish gift ideas. All these shops are based in the UK.
Felt Halloween Decorations – Michelle Good
These pure wool felt decorations are so cute and would look great around the house at Halloween – or even hanging on your bag!
With 12 different designs to choose from (I particularly love that cheeky cat) each member of the family can have their very own.
Made from pure wool felt and handmade by Michelle, these will be Halloween treasures to bring out year after year.
And they start at a very un-frightening £4 each.
Michelle’s shop features many other cute decorations as well as the high quality felt and supplies she uses – so you can make your very own felties.

Pumpkin Earrings – WhereTheWeirdThingsR
Nothing says Halloween like a Jack O Lantern, and these cheerful earrings will be great to wear for the spooky season.
Featuring a shiny orange “Jack” and black glass faceted beads they are both elegant and fun.
There is also a matching charm bracelet if you want to show your full Halloweeny style.
Ash, the owner of Where The Weird Things R, has a fantastic range of unusual items in his Etsy shop. I do love the purple rat necklace, that is very different and would make an amazing talking point. Or perhaps you are more into her fantastic one of a kind polymer clay bottles.
Bat-Tastic Halloween Cat Collar – MogsTogs
The furry members of the household may want to join in the Halloween fun too!
This fantastic cat collar is both safe for your kitty, and creepy-cute as well.
The collar has a breakaway buckle to protect your cat when she is out hunting for ghost mice and birds. There is also a removable jingly bell – if you prefer that she doesn’t actually catch those ghosties.
And the cheerful orange bat webbing, with cute little silver coloured bat charm will ensure that Puss will look her best this Halloween.
Rachel, the owner of Mogs Togs, has lots of other snazzy collars for your cat friends too. Whether your kitty likes sweet, sophisticated, bright or gothy there is bound to be a collar to suit her (and we all know that cats are super fussy about these things).
Crochet Baby Booties – Edita Edituke
These cute little pumpkin booties will guarantee that your Halloween pictures of baby will look adorable.
Beautifully crocheted in pumpkin orange with cute little green leafy trims and soles they are bright and cheerful.
They are ready to ship and fit babies of 3 to 6 months.
Edita has lots of other lovely booties in her Etsy shop, so your baby can have the perfect footwear for all occasions.
Needle Felted Pumpkins – Candyfleece
Three little needle felted pumpkins that look super realistic! Perfect for your Halloween decorating, or how about as photo props for collector’s dolls and bears?
The biggest pumpkin is 3″ in diameter (8cms) and the smallest is 2″ (6cm).
Lovingly made from merino wool, these are classy little decorations that would soon become a traditional family favourite.
Dina of Candyfleece also sells a wonderful range of fuzzy little rat characters – but these are definitely not vermin! They are super cute and full of personality. The biggest problem would be deciding which one you love the most.
Cuddly Bat Sewing Pattern – GrumbleCaveMonsters
He is small, fuzzy and far too cute to be really spooky, but this little bat would be a great addition to anyone’s Halloween celebrations.
This is a pattern to make your own bats, so you can create them in all colours and have your own colony! (The collective word for a group of bats, I checked.) And as the templates are digital, you can print them at different sizes too! The bat is a nice 10 inches tall he can be hand sewn or you can use a machine.
Kim of Grumble Cave Monsters has a wonderful range of fuzzy monster patterns (love the yetis!) as well as some unusual plush constellation toys – ideal for the astronomer in the family.
