7 Unusual Halloween Gifts To Get in 2021

Everyone loves a great gift no matter what the occasion. That said, the traditional chocolates and greeting cards just won’t cut it, given the spirit of Spooktober. So why not make things interesting by buying some unusual gifts instead?

Here are our picks for seven great unusual Halloween gifts that you can buy in 2021:

1. 3D Alien Skull Ice Mould Tray

 3D Alien Skull Ice Mould Tray

Picture this: Your friends get together at your house on Halloween to watch the 1979 Sci-fi/Horror classic Alien. Then, as the Xenomorph stalks its next victim, you get a round of drinks for your friends. But wait, is that an alien skull in the ice tray?!

Even if you’re not into movie parties, these 3D Alien Skull Ice Mould Tray from Shaped is one of the more unusual gifts you can give to someone.

This ice cube tray provides a highly detailed 3D mold of an alien skull and is a sight to behold. Not only are the skulls detailed, but they are also large. The large size makes for slow-melting ice cubes, which can keep any drink chilled for a long time.

Is your friend more of the DIY crafting type instead? You’ll be pleased to know that the Shaped 3D Alien Skull Ice Mould Tray can also work as a mold for other items. So whether it’s alien skull soap, alien skull chocolates, or even alien skull wax candles, the possibilities are endless.

2. Gothic and Fantasy Book of Shadow Journal

Is your friend the more quiet and reflective type? Do they spend a lot of time walking alone in nature? Perhaps they even have an interest in the arcane arts and would like to write down a few incantations?

Even if your friend isn’t a witch or a warlock, they’ll surely appreciate this Gothic and Fantasy Book of Shadow Journal.

The journal is quite large, which means your friend will have plenty of room to write down all their thoughts - or spells. Two metallic clasps secure the journal and keep it safe from any prying eyes.

The best part, though, in our opinion, is the gorgeous leather cover. This journal is also a work of art, with a red leather finish carved with aesthetic designs and a pentagram to ward off any evil spirits.

So as far as unusual Halloween gifts go, the Gothic and Fantasy Book of Shadow Journal makes our list of the best Halloween 2021 gifts.

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas Vintage Music Box

No need for batteries; the music box is powered entirely by its crank handle. Just rotate it a few times to hear your favorite spooky melody play out loud.

A wooden box design with Celtic patterns provides an attractive vintage finish. The product is also quite portable, weighing in at only 3.52 ounces.

The full moon is when witches fly, and werewolves shapeshift. So why not bring the full moon indoors with the Luna Floating Moon Lamp by Floately?

The Luna Floating Moon Lamp is a levitating lamp that comes with a wooden base. A floating decoration piece may be one thing, but a floating and rotating 3D moon lamp is one of the most unusual gifts you can get someone this Halloween.

Silent as the grave, this floating moon lamp is a step ahead of most floating products. You can easily keep it in your living room, dining room, or even your bedroom without worrying about noisy motors and gears whirring away.

Surely though, a product this fancy must consume a lot of power? Wrong; the lamp uses a special energy-efficient LED that saves power. Even if you keep it running all day, you won’t see your electricity bill skyrocket.

The best part? This lamp is customizable, letting you change the mood by choosing from different color options.
