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.


Black Licorice and Orange Cream Saltwater Taffy – $8.90 / 1 lb bag (~70 pieces) @ Connexion Candy
Go old school and hand out saltwater taffy on Halloween – it’s relatively cheap to buy and totally unique to whatever else they’ll get. Plus, it’s already pre-wrapped!


Halloween Bubbles – $8 for 24 @ Party Express
Keep their spirits lifted without the sugar high with a fun bubble container themed to Halloween. Available in Frankenstein, Ghost and Pumpkin variations.


Candy Corn Sucker Rings – $6.99 / 12 @ Open a Party
Add a little glitz and glamour (or not) with this fun twist on ring pops – with a honey-flavoured candy corn theme, perfect for Halloween.


Halloween Bounce Balls – $9.99 each for 24 @ Party City
There’s tons of creative Halloween handout ideas at Party City, including erasers, tattoos and more – but these spooky bouncy balls caught my eye. Just find me a little one that won’t love playing pranks with those eyeballs!

  25. Love the bouncy balls, Play-Doh and hand sanitizers! As a diabetic, I absolutely hated Halloween as a kid, since my parents took away all the good stuff and left me with the “healthy” treats. Ugh. I always make it a point to give out toys instead of sugar-filled treats. The kids love it and the parents, especially those dealing with children’s allergies and such, appreciate it.

  26. aclily19 says:

    The candy corn sucker rings are really neat.

  27. cookie3 says:

    I love the playdoh idea.

  28. Milley says:

    i like the bouncing balls or the bubbles or playdoh. I guess playdoh. they are all good prices and we only get about 25 kids…

  29. LM says:

    The Lush Halloween Collection is a great treat for those not able to consume sugar plus..bath bombs are calorie free!

  30. L.M. says:

    The Lush Halloween Collection is a great treat for those unable to tolerate sugar treats…plus bath bombs are calorie free.

  32. Anne Derkat says:

    Oh, the pumpkin lollipops, because they are chocolate, of course.

  33. Susan says:

    For the kids I would choose the Play-Doh Hallowe’en Treat Bag, however, for myself I would have to choose the Purdy’s Pumpkin Lollipops!

  34. Jay Al-noor says:

    i would love to get these for my siblings they look super delicious and i cannot afford to buy candies to give to kids for Halloween so this would be something nice to make the kids happy

  35. Tainan Lu says:
