Sometimes a simple Halloween gift for a friend is the perfect way to brighten her day.
Picture this, you’ve been running around like crazy all week. Between social distance schooling the kids, the stresses of your job and cooking 8 million meals over the last 6 months the stress is building up. There’s a knock at the door and you hesitantly head over, thinking it’s yet another census taker, but instead you’re surprised to find a cute little Halloween surprise made just for you sitting there.
Life has been crazy and you need those unexpected moments that make you smile. This is a super simple Halloween gift that you can take to a friend to brighten her day (and probably yours too when you give it).
Last year I shared with you a fun tutorial on how to Boo’ze your friends and this year it’s all about Boo’ tifying them! Boo’tifying works just like Boo’ing but with way better treats.
If you have played the Boo Game during Halloween with your neighbors you know how it’s done. For those of you that are unfamiliar, it’s a fun game to play at Halloween. You grab a Halloween bucket or bag, stuff it full of treats and goodies, leave it on your neighbors door step, ring the doorbell and run.
It’s kind of like ding dong ditch but with candy and everyone is happy you rang.
BOO’tifying is a new kind of You’ve Been Boo’ed and it will totally put a spell on you.
It’s “You’ve Been Boo’ed” but make it beauty and so easy! I wanted my gifts to have a rustic witchy apothecary feel so I used my favorite pocket friendly wrapping option- a paper lunch sack.
What You Will NEED:
- Beauty Treats
- Paper Lunch Sack
- Creepy Ribbon
- Bakers String
- BOO’tified Printable (DOWNLOAD HERE: You’ve Been Boo-tified Printable )
- A Feather (It’s part of the spell)
First you will need to gather some bewitching beauty products- nothing too expensive it’s that thought that counts.
I brewed my beauty potion at LUSH at Fashion Show- they just launched their perfectly spooky Halloween Collection of vegan and ethical Halloween treats which includes everything from Bath Bombs to Bubble Bars, Shower Slime, Lip Scrubs and more! LUSH is perfect for this gift- fun, a great price point, everyone can use them PLUS they smell Halloween-tacular! If you don’t want to use a paper bag LUSH has a super cute Halloween fabric knot wrap (see above) which you can tie FUROSHIKI style and then add the printable.
Once you have your gifts, place them in the lunch sack. (I did one bath bomb in each gift).
Fold the bag over.
Then tie the bag shut with a creepy ribbon.
Now roll your printable up like a scroll and tie it with the baker’s string. Put a feather behind it and secure them both to the ribbon on the bag.
Leave your Boo-tified potion on your friends doorstep, ring the doorbell and run! Warning- this will be followed by shriek’s of delight from your friend.
I think this year, more than any other, we need to spread a little seasonal magic and this beauty spell is the perfect treat to lift her spirits!
