    1. These tiny ghost candles that are so adorable they might light your deep, dark soul with a little joy.

    CountryRichCreations / Etsy

    Get it from CountryRichCreations on Etsy for $2.25+ (available in packs of one, three, six, 12, and 24 and in seven scents).

    2. The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell for anyone who's looking for a good, old fashioned ghost story.


    Promising review: "I recently read this book and found myself launched into the gothic world of mystery and otherworldly characters Purcell created. I was unable to put down the book, but I was also afraid to look over my shoulder. I recommend this book to anyone who likes history, ghosts, stunning storytelling, and has an affinity for large, spooky houses." —hhuffines

    Get it from Amazon for $14.40.

    3. Some black sugar because it's the perfect way to top off ghoulishly creative treats or rim a glass for wicked Halloween-themed cocktails.

    dellcovespices / Etsy

    The seller recommends rimming the glass with simple syrup — instead of water or lime juice — to avoid melting the sugar.

    Get it from dellcovespices on Etsy for $5.95+ (available in three sizes).

    4. This edgy octopus ring you'll fall head over tentacles for.

    Promising review: "I really love this ring. It's made of titanium and stainless steel and after over a year of almost daily wear, the ring still looks brand new! I was a bit skeptical as most rings that are not silver or gold will leave a mark on my skin as the plating wears off over time. This thing must be solid titanium/steel though, as the metal does not react with my skin at all, even in the humidity of summer. The ring adjusts with some effort, but once you get it where you want, you're good to go. I bought this for my middle finger, for extra special rude gestures, and it did not disappoint!! Perfect for a little extra edginess at the office." —Lindsey Hudgens

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    5. Or a Mistress of Evil ring so you can channel your inner Maleficent and be the baddest witch you know — with or without a costume party!

    Hot Topic

    Get it from Hot Topic for $9.90.

    6. This spooky countdown calendar you absolutely need if you love Halloween more than you love your own birthday.

    7. A pack of creepy-crawly resealable bags that'll really make unsuspecting spectators bug out. Talk about adding a little crunch to your meal.


    Promising review: "These are so fun and funny! Some are flies and some are roaches. They are AMAZINGLY realistic....I obviously know they're just pictures, but they still startle me sometimes. I bought some for my sister to use when she takes her lunch to work. Someone kept eating her food out of the shared refrigerator and this stopped them....for a while at least. It also makes a fun gag gift." —Jack

    Get it from Amazon for $14.27.

    8. This pack of Ouija board themed–personalized party invitations so you can summon your guests to your Mischief Night gatherings.

    LittleMountainTop / Etsy

    9. A set of Ouija board planchette earrings for anyone who was too scared to buy an actual board as a child — don't worry, there's no summoning spirits involved.

    LilliputLittleThings / Etsy

    Promising review: "I love these earrings so much! I love all things halloween/spooky/paranormal and these add the finishing touch to my wardrobe this time of year. I've gotten so many compliments on them. I also have sensitive earlobes and these don't aggravate them at all. I will be ordering more products from this shop." —Paige Nighland

    Get it from LilliputLittleThings on Etsy for $10.

    10. A "blood-stained" shower curtain that'll turn your bathroom into a scene straight out of your favorite horror movie. All the glory, none of the gore.

    Promising review: "I'm planning on doing a murder scene in my bathroom for Halloween, and this is perfect! It's a tad on the translucent side, but it really doesn't matter to me since I'm going to put a 'dead body' in my bathtub anyway. It doesn't look cheesy or too fake, and there's no mess (yay!). I love the value and this product. If you do purchase this, make sure you give it a few days of hanging to get out all the creases!" —emily

    Get it from Amazon for $3.62.

    11. And this bloody shower mat to match your curtains for a truly horrific scene.


    Promising review: "This was exactly the same quality as the all-black version that I got from Bed Bath & Beyond. It really is so soft and it locked in the moisture from out of the shower. It matched the bloody shower curtain I got so it was perfect!" —C.E.S.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.89.

    Promising review: "I was expecting something that looked kind of cheap but I was pleasantly surprised when the item arrived, it looks awesome! Super realistic like a real shrunken skull. I'm a horror writer so it fits like a glove on my desk!" —Fiend Gottes

    20. This skull-shaped wine holder because you wouldn't be caught dead without a chilling way to store your wine.


    Promising review: "We have all of the different skull wine holders, this is our favorite. Gave one to a friend for his birthday and he loves it! Everyone at the party thought it was really cool. It doesn't have to hold a wine bottle, our friend is using it to display a rare bottle of Mansinthe. Definitely recommend." —Megadeth Fan
