Halloween might be a little different this year. Due to the ongoing pandemic, many neighborhoods are taking extra safety precautions, including nixing door-to-door trick or treating, or otherwise modifying the Fall holiday’s normal candy-distribution methods.
But just because Halloween may be more lowkey in 2020 doesn’t mean we still can’t have some spooky fun. So whether you have little ones at home or you just want to entertain your neighbors, here are some scary (and silly) suggestions to make your home festive this harvest season.

Dancing pumpkin Bluetooth speaker
Why we like it: It’s a pumpkin for your porch, plus sound and light ambience for your trick-or-treaters all in one. With 4.3 out of 5 stars on Amazon, this 7” x 7” x 7” smiling pumpkin can play your favorite spooky songs via Bluetooth. Just connect your smartphone’s playlist and listen to up to three hours of music on a single charge.
Best for: Kid-friendly holiday fun
Fog machine with wireless remote
Why we like it: Nothing adds a bit of flair to a Halloween party quite like a fog machine. With a remote that works from up to 30 feet away, you can surprise your guests with a burst of fog as they enter a room, or create a creepy walkway to your home for any that dare enter. Plus, this fog machine won’t shock your Halloween budget. Just don’t forget the fog fluid (sold separately).
Best for: Haunting with a theatrical twist
Customizable Bluetooth glasses
Why we like it: Perfect for the sun-averse ghouls and goblins in your life, this Halloween accessory is great if you want to wear your sunglasses at night. Use Bluetooth to send a message from the CHEMION App to your glasses display — the text, color and animation is up to you. Plus, these specs can easily transition to other fun holidays too, such as Independence Day or even a birthday party.
Best for: Keeping the party rolling all year round
Philips Hue smart lights
Why we like it: Create your perfect mysterious mood in an instant by using the preset Halloween light scene “Blood Moon,” available in this smart light’s compatible app. Or enhance your home’s eeriness with lights and sound that you create. Best of all, you can customize your quarters with as many or as few lights as you prefer and use them year-round to produce a variety of settings, from festive to cozy.
Best for: Holiday decor that’s still functional after the clock strikes midnight
Inflatable pumpkin with ghosts
Why we like it: Though this decoration tops our list price-wise, we think it’s worth it if you’re “gravely” serious about annual fright night. This six-foot inflatable with Bluetooth capability and LED lights will make quite an impression on your neighbors. Just don’t blame us if you feel like someone’s always watching you.
