Shop This List TODAY: Everything you need for Halloween

Hyde & EEK! Boutique 5-Inch Carvable Faux Pumpkin

If you don't want to carve real pumpkins, we found faux pumpkins that deliver the same seasonal experience, but without the mess. Since they're made from polyurethane, you don't have to worry about getting gooey pulp on your hands (or, on your table). Plus, you can still stick a candle in them for some ambience.

Mars Halloween Candy Variety Pack Fun Size

We don't think you'll have to make multiple trips to the store to restock on candy with this bag — it has 160 pieces of sweets for visiting trick-or-treaters. From Skittles and Snickers to Starburst, Twix and M&Ms, all of the goodies inside are individually wrapped.

Hyde & EEK! Boutique Kids' Skull Reusable Trick or Treat Bag

The only thing that matters more than eating the candy? Having a bag big enough to hold all of it in. This reusable tote comes in different Halloween-themed patterns and is sure to stand out from the typical trick-or-treat pail.

Hyde & EEK! Boutique French Bulldog Skeleton

We don't think this one is a want — it's a need. This prop can be used indoors or outdoors and is also small enough to be used in a table display, so you can decorate practically any area of your home with it. If the skeleton alone isn't cute enough, the adorable photos from reviewers might win you over.

Hyde & EEK! Boutique Silly Eyes Halloween Pumpkin Carving Kit

Pumping carving might require you to tap into your inner artist, but if you don't think you have the skills for it, this kit can help. It includes stencils, a carver, poker, scoop and pairs of silly eyes that can help make decorating feel a little easier.

Hyde & EEK! Boutique Animated Ghost Candy Bowl

This ghoulishly cute candy dish might give a good scare to unsuspecting visitors trying to satisfy their sweet tooth when it says "Boo!" Its light-up green eyes will turn red when someone tries to sneak their hand in.

Hyde & EEK! Boutique Velvet Cape

Halloween is less than two weeks away! If you know you're going to end up needing a costume at the last minute, this cape might be worth having on hand. It can easily be dressed up or down to mesh with a range of costume ideas, whether you want to go as a vampire or a witch.

Hyde & EEK! Boutique Halloween Skeletons Matching Family Pajama Set

Who can resist a cute pair of family matching Halloween pajamas? This skeleton-inspired design comes in sizes for everyone, including men, kids, babies and pets. You can find the set in sizes XS-4X and then finish your look with an equally spooky pair of slippers.

Hyde & EEK! Boutique Skeleton Groundbreaker Set

This 5-piece skeleton can be anchored to the ground for a creative (but low maintenance) decoration this season. Whether you want to stick it in your garden or on your front lawn, it's sure to give passersby a scare. To really set the scene, grab a tombstone with an equally eerie message.

Hyde & EEK! Boutique Mini Mantel Gravestones Decorations

If your mantel or tabletop could use some ghoulish touches, this four-piece set is one way to spruce up your space. Don't have a mantel in your home? The set also makes for a cute desk setup, so you can bring a festive feel to the office, too.
