01

Animated Eyeball

Animated Eyeball

This bowl is super creepy and also a little bit funny. The glowing eyeball is set on a "carved" rustic-looking stand for the white bowl, which measures just under 11" wide. The whole thing is sturdy plastic.

02

Copper Candy Cauldron

Copper Candy Cauldron

Upscale witches will love this quality copper cauldron from Pottery Barn. It's perfect for candy, but also makes a great chip bowl for parties. The powder-coated copper cauldron measures 15" wide x 14.5" deep x 21" high. Note: it's not meant for cooking, so hold off on the real witches' brew.

03

Bowl of Blood

Bowl of Blood

This clever, creepy candy dish looks like splashing blood. (It also comes in green for a slime effect, white, and blue.) The 10" ceramic bowl is simple, yet effective for scaring trick-or-treaters.

04

Personalized Family Bowl

This cute Halloween bowl is a family affair. Personal Creations customizes the container, putting names under Halloween characters including witches and vampires. The ceramic bowl is 10.75" in diameter and can fit up to 6 characters.

05

Cat Mouth Candy

Cat Mouth Candy

Place your candy stash in this whimsical cat mouth bowl. The 7.5" tall ceramic cat head is a great candy holder (albeit a bit small), but luckily it also looks spooky with a flameless candle in its cavernous caw.

06

Calavera Sugar Skulls

Calavera Sugar Skulls

It's not quite Halloween, but we'd be remiss if we didn't include this pretty Day of the Dead-inspired ceramic bowl. The colorful bowl is 10.2" diameter and features painted calavera skulls all the way around.

Shiver me timbers, it's a treasure chest for Halloween candy! This handmade galvanized metal chest is ideal for passing out candy, or hoarding it after the holiday. Food safe and water tight, it measures 13.5" wide x 8.5" deep x 8.75" high.

Precious Pumpkin

Precious Pumpkin

This kitten and pumpkin bowl from Pier 1 isn't spooky at all — it's adorable! The dishwasher-safe dolomite dish is 5.75"W x 7.25"D x 5.25"H. It's on the small side for a candy bowl, but if you don't have many trick-or-treaters headed your way, perhaps it's the perfect size! Or keep it around the house to share seasonal sweets.

Honor System Bucket

Honor System Bucket

If you're out trick-or-treating yourself, just fill this bucket with candy and leave it by your front door.
