We spent dozens of hours scouring the internet and testing our favorite products to separate the best from the rest. We’ll help you find anything from creepy decorations, such as an animatronic clown to scare the pants off trick-or-treaters, to stunning accessories, such as pumpkin-shaped stud earrings, that are perfect for gifting. 

You’ll also need a good costume, and we found plenty for all ages as well as fun options for groups and couples. Our roundup of our 100 favorite products also includes toys to keep the kiddos entertained when they’re hyped up on sugar from Halloween candy as well as other products worth investing in for this Halloween and future ones to come.

We checked out Twinkle Star’s LED lights and found they stretch your dollar further than other lights thanks to their durability, brightness, and ease of use. Safe to use outdoors, they measure 98.5 feet long, so they can cover a wide area. The purple hue nicely complements other Halloween decorations, but this set is also available in orange, white, blue, and multicolor.
