Tis the season to be SPOOKY! 👻🎃

That’s right… it’s BOO Basket season! Time to bundle together some spook-tacular treats that will excite and delight throughout the spooky season! And what better way to present such treats to a loved one, than in a Sun Jellies Retro Basket?! 


Perfect for Halloween, but great to use all year round, our Retros make the cutest BOO Baskets. Stuffed with autumnal goodies, they really do look jellytastic – and they double up as the perfect trick-or-treating bag… because every kid needs somewhere to stash their sweeties! 


If you haven’t yet bagged your Retro Baskets for Halloween, you can browse the range HERE. We have a rainbow of colours available, and you can choose between our Large, Small, or Mini sizes.

Bagged your Basket, but not sure what to put in it?


No problemo! We’re here to provide all the inspiration you need, to help you pull together the perfect BOO Basket!


Before we start listing items that you might want to include, have a think about what your BOO Basket recipient most enjoys at any time of year. Whether it’s reading books, baking, arts and crafts, or dressing up, you’ll likely find Autumnal/Halloween-themed versions of the things they love all year round! A spooky storybook for a child who loves to read, or a Halloween cookie kit for the child who loves to bake. This time of year, the shops are filled with seasonal varieties of everyday items. So have a think about the types of things that would most excite the person you’re preparing the BOO Basket for.


Over the years, we’ve seen some truly AMAZING BOO Baskets!

There really are no rules when it comes to the contents! You can include as many tricks or treats as you like!

To get you started, here’s a short list of the boo-tiful items we often see…


– Spooky Story Books

– Halloween-themed Wands & Flags

– Hair Accessories – Pins, Scrunchies, Bows, and Headbands

– Pens, Pencils, Stickers, and Colouring/Activity Books

– Cute Pin Badges

– Soft Toys

– Beaded Bracelets

– Bubble Wands

– Halloween themed T-Shirts

– Fancy Dress Items

– Slipper Socks

– And of course… Sweet Treats – Cookies, Candy, and Chocolate


If you want to take your BOO Basket to the next level, we’d recommend adding a personalised name tag or badge. There are lots of online stores that handmake things like this, but if you’re working to a tight budget, you could make something yourself! It’s such a thoughtful addition, and also very handy if you’re preparing multiple baskets for different members of your family!

So you’ve got all your items and you’re ready to assemble your BOO Basket…


We want your BOO Basket to look JELLYTASTIC! With a range of items to squeeze in, we recommend starting with the biggest/tallest items at the back of the bag, and then staggering the smaller items at the front. 


If you have pin badges, sunglasses, hair accessories, or bracelets, consider attaching (some of) these to the front of the basket, so they can be clearly seen. 


Wands and flags look best if they are positioned diagonally, so the tips overhang the edges of the bag. And last but not least, be sure to attach the personalised name tag as the final pièce de resistance!
