My first in this series was published last month and it was pretty popular – and fun to put together – so I’m carrying it on this month. Here are five little things you can treat yourself to for under £5. Seeing as it’s October, we have a bit of a Halloween theme going on. It’s become a bit of a thing in our house, as Sam absolutely loves it and we usually have a little party at our house and go out trick or treating. He can be found wearing his vampire outfit 12 months of the year, however, it’s in no way restricted to October!
Liquorice skulls, John Lewis, £4. I love that these are a bit different to the usual sweets that are on offer. I love liquorice too and like to kid myself that it’s healthy.
Witches hat headband, Tiger, £2. This was a gift from my friend Claire to Florence, I’m hoping I can persuade her to keep it on her head by the end of the month! I love the shop Tiger but unfortunately there aren’t any stores near our house, so the only time I have visited is when I went to Cambridge last year. Come up north, Tiger!
Kilner jar, a gift in my goodie bag from the Mad Blog Awards but widely available, such as here for under £2. I wondered what I’d use it for at first but I bought some star anise last week for a recipe and as the bag split, thought this was the perfect solution!
Pumpkin cake toppers, John Lewis, £4. Can’t wait to get these on top of our Halloween case this year, or I’m thinking they could even go in a cocktail like a little paper umbrella!
Halloween sprinkles, Wilton, £4.50. Perfect for biscuits, cakes or to sprinkle on ice cream.
So there are my Halloween picks for October. Hope you like them!
