So here we are in October and who would’ve thought back in March that not only was Summer canceled, but we’re now facing a year without Halloween. The pandemic is happening whether we like it or not, so we may as well make the most of it!
Halloween 2020 is sure to be different this year, no matter where you are in the world. No trick or treating, no home visits and certainly no pubs or nightclubs.
‘Halloween is canceled’ and ‘Strictly no trick or treating this year!’ are just some of the headlines we are forced to read every day on our timelines. Instead of dwelling on the bad news, we want to shed a bit of positivity and give you some inspiration on how to spend your Halloween 2020!
Irishify’s ultimate guide to your Halloween night in
Netflix & Snacks Marathon
This one is too obvious. You are restricted, you shouldn’t leave your house and you can’t have visitors so a Netflix Marathon is a must. Gather your family, significant other or cozy up by yourself and tune into a Halloween classic. We all know that no Netflix marathon is complete without some essential snacks! Wherever you are in the world, Irishify can express deliver a huge 5kg hamper full of Irish snacks in record timing thanks to our partners DHL Express. Mighty Munch, Meanies, Mini Rolls, and Cadbury’s fingers are just some of the delights you can look forward to with our Suit Yourself hamper. Hitting a mid-movie slump? Sugar crash pending and there’s only one solution! A cup of tea to revive the soul but the question is – Lyon’s or Barry’s?
Cook up a storm with Irishify
Takeaways are great, but sometimes you can’t beat cooking up something yourself! We have a nice selection of savory sauces sure to complement any dish you whip up. Get spicy with our Sing-Li Curry, or maybe you prefer McDonnell’s? Either way, you have the choice with our Suit Yourself hamper. Try your hand at a home-made Spice Bag with the McDonnell’s mix, and top it with one of our Abrakebabra limited edition sauces! If you’re feeling peckish mid-way through your Netflix night in, simply slather some Ballymaloe Relish on some wheaten and enjoy the rich flavour – Delish!
Board games & Banshee Bones
Adam’s family has just finished and you’re ready for the next Halloween activity. Whip out the monopoly board, or a deck of UNO cards and get competitive. If there are any family spats over the price of a building on the monopoly board, introduce a fun element where you can partially fund a monopoly purchase with a bag of limited edition Banshee Bones! We’ve managed to get our hands on heaps of Banshee Bones, so much so that we may have cleaned out Mr. Tayto himself! We’re also throwing in 3 FREE BAGS of Banshee Bones with all Irishify hamper orders, simply because we’re sound like that.
We left this one to last (best as they say), but we all know there were cans being enjoyed even during Netflix and the board games. Share stories and chat with your loved ones over a few cans of the good stuff. Make it even better craic with a personalised video shoutout from an Irish celebrity. Get them to say something funny about everyone in attendance, like how your Ma is an awful woman for giving out or how your Da is fond of the Guinness. Finish off the shoutout with a reassuring message for your loved ones that better days are on the horizon. You wouldn’t believe the power of a shoutout until you experience it yourself! An instant happiness lift plus a personal memory you’ll always share. One of the Father Ted lads is sure to bring a barrel of laughs to your Halloween night in. See our list of Irish talent available right now for shoutouts.
Don’t overshare though, or you’ll be in real life horrors the next morning! Prepare yourself for the following morning with our Hungover Hamper. This hamper was specially designed to bring you the ultimate cure. Mighty Much and Tayto are sure to soak up some of the cans consumed from the night before. We were sure to throw in a bottle of liquid gold, also known as Club Rock Shandy to bring life back to your Halloween 2020.
So there you have it, the ultimate guide to Halloween 2020 according to Irishify.
