If you’re super into Halloween, you probably believe that the vessel you use to hand out the candy is as important as the candy itself. Skip the predictable plastic pumpkin or cauldron and go for something a little more surprising this year. You just might be inspired to hoard some of that candy for later.

  1. Skull Candy Bowl, $17 at World Market: Freak out trick or treaters and have them reach into this skull’s mouth to grab their candy.
  2. Stripes Charcoal Recycled Canvas Bucket, $22 at Maika: This nine-inch-tall canvas bucket is so cute, you can totally use it year-round to hold odds and ends or even as a makeshift planter.
  3. Aw Snap Cube Bin, $13 at Land of Nod: For those who live in a busy neighborhood with lots of trick or treaters, this felt bin holds a boatload of candy. Use it in a playroom the rest of the year or unfold it for easy storage until next October.
  4. Candy Corn Crocheted Bowl, $13 at OrdinaryLovely: Candy corn fanatics will love the sweetness of this small basket. It’s tiny (less than four inches tall and five inches across), so you’ll have to refill it a few times during the night, but it’s totally worth it.
  5. Tall Crow Feet Candy Bowl, $10 at Target: Perch this creepy container on a bench or table on your porch and keep watch as ghosts and goblins help themselves.
  6. X-Small Copper Marche Basket, $12 at Container Store: Smaller candies will fall through the holes, so this basket will almost guarantee that you buy (and give out) the good stuff!
  7. Spider Web Candy Bowl, $1 at Party City: For just a dollar, you can even buy a few of these and scatter them around your house during a Halloween party.
  8. Metal Beverage Bucket, $25 at ChilledDesigns: Load this up with candy or, if you’re throwing a party, ice and bottles of beer.
  9. No. 6 Petit Market, $34 at Peg and Awl: Designed to look like those brown paper bags you get at the supermarket, this slightly smaller version is actually made of cotton canvas, so it will last through the night – and long after.
  10. Lorena Bread Basket, $15 at CB2: Technically meant for dinner rolls and croissants, there’s nothing saying you can’t load this up with candy and keep it by the front door.
