Halloween Gift Ideas

Halloween gift ideas are easy when you think of the most most obvious gift for the occasion - candy, whether it's traditional black and orange in color, unusual lollipops, or some more unusual kind of gourmet chocolate!

halloween candy giftA Brief History of Halloween from Candy Gift Ideas. Halloween has a long history, which, like that of many holidays, is at least partly shrouded in mystery. The word itself, "Halloween," almost indisputably came from the Catholic Church. The name is a short, corrupted form of All Hallows Eve. November 1, "All Hollows Day" (or "All Saints Day"), is a Catholic day of observance in honor of saints. But, in the 5th century BC, in Celtic Ireland, summer officially ended on October 31. Like other church holidays, other less "holy" celebrations were merged, in this case a Celtic holiday representing the last day of summer. That holiday featured people dressing up in ghoulish costumes to frighten away spirits of the dead. As Christian influence grew, the influence of "All Souls Day" became more prominent, and the practice of begging for food was incorporated. Costumes became more ritualized as well.

Today, Halloween is celebrated by both children and adults, with children canvassing their neighbors looking for candy treats. In terms of candy "tonnage," Halloween is one of the biggest holidays, as people distribute candy to dozens or even hundreds of costumed children.

Gift Ideas for Halloween. Want to surprise someone on Halloween? Looking for something different? At Candy Gift Ideas, we suggest you give a gift that will be enjoyed long after the holiday itself! Don't go with traditional Halloween fare - there are way too many "fun" size candy bars and things like candy corn around. Instead, think about a non-traditional Halloween gift, like chocolate truffles or perhaps Godiva chocolates.
