Here are Etsy’s Spookiest Halloween Trends for All Your Socially Distant Celebrations

Let us repeat: Halloween is not canceled this year. While in-person parties maybe out, socially distant trick-or-treating, watching 31 Days of Halloween, and eating all the candy safely from the comfort of your couch are fair game. And don’t forget the Halloween decor — we just might even be taking that to the next level this year because we need all the fun in our lives right now.

Not sure where to start when it comes to pandemic-friendly Halloween decor, costumes, and more? Obviously, Etsy to the rescue. Etsy just dropped their top 2020 Halloween items, and it’s loaded with hauntingly cute decor, kids costumes, and pumpkin-decorating accessories.

And since this year is far from normal, the list of ghoulish goodies reflects the changes we’re seeing this year. For example, can we interest you in a hauntingly cute hand-sanitizing sign to display in front of your self-serve candy bowl outside your porch? Or how about a custom invite for your neighborhood’s drive-by trick-or-treat parade? Obviously, we want them all.

Ahead, check out the best goodies from Etsy to help you kick off your Halloween festivities for this already-haunting year.

What says “pandemic Halloween” more than this sign? It manages to make our most-frequented 2020 activity kinda fun? Instead of setting up one bowl of candy outside your house, set up a few, along with this printout, to remind kids to clean their hands before grabbing their favorite candy.

Pumpkin Decor

Drive-By Trick-or-Treating
