10 for $10: Only Treats Edition
Halloween’s just about to hit us folks – and if you’re looking to hand out something more creative than a mini candy bar, I’ve picked out 10 nifty ideas under $10. Granted, it might be pricey to give these items out if you’ve got hundreds, or even dozens, of kids. But if you’ve got a limited number or you’re picking out some special items for your own kids or your niece / nephew etc. then all of these would be cool, creative treats come Halloween.
Pumpkin Lollipops – $2.25 each or $6 for three @ Purdys
Available in dark and milk chocolate, these are definitely sweet treats, but at least it’ll teach the kids thedifferencee between decadent and regular ol’ chocolate.
Play-Doh Halloween Treat Bag – $11.72 for 15 @ Amazon
Yes, technically this is over $10, but when you break it down, each item costs less than $1, showing you can give away something totally fun for just a little more than candy – and without the toothache.
Brain Power Gummies – From $6 @ Squish
Zombies are a classic Halloween motif – and now the kids can get their Walking Dead on with these yummy, creamy, intensely fruity candies.
Lush Halloween Collection 2016 – From $5.95
These are just a few selections from Lush’s awesome Halloween line-up, which changes every year. From the new Goth Fairy Shimmer Bar to the colour-changing Autumn Leaf Bath Bomb to the pumpkin spice-scented Pumpkin bath bomb, there’s plenty to love – and gift – for under $10.
Pack of 8 Marshmallow or Milk Chocolate Bars – $9.99 @ Laura Secord
Yup, you can give away a good-sized bar made from yumtastic chocolate for a pretty good price. Pick up a pack in both marshmallow and milk chocolate and let the kids take their pick.
Halloween Fun 5-Pack PocketBac Sanitizers – $6 @ Bath & Body Works
Before they dive into that candy, make sure their hands are clean – give ’em one of these five spooky yet silly anti-bacterial hand gels.

Halloween Bounce Balls – $9.99 each for 24 @ Party City
