Three reasons that you should make Halloween treats this year

The leaves are changing, the wind is blowing and Halloween costume shops are popping up everywhere.  Yes my friends.  It is officially fall and Halloween isn’t far behind!

Ask any kid what Halloween is about and you will get one response: CANDY!

But handing out treats doesn’t just have to be for the kiddos.  Here are three reasons you should consider making Halloween Treats to pass out to your adult friends this year too:

  1. Giving gifts is good for you health! True story!  Berkley University has done a study that indicated altruistic acts actually make you a healthier person including less aches and pains, and lower rates of depression.
  2. Giving gifts makes you happier!  There is a biological response to giving a gift that causes a reaction in the part of our brain that experiences pleasure.   Go figure!
  3. Giving gifts promotes social interactions!  Who wouldn’t want to get to know you better after you hand them a beautifully packaged treat.

So, do your health a favour, and package some Fun Size Treats in a cute box for your friends  Here’s one you can make using the Gift Board Punch Box (item code 135853) that you dress up some treats with:

Is your friend not so into the candy?  Consider making and giving a Halloween card:

These two projects were ideas we made at the Canadian Fall Conference sponsored by Stampin’ Up! Canada.  So cute!  I’m excited to give them away in the next few weeks so I can experience all of the altruistic health benefits.

Speaking of health… what’s your favourite fun size Halloween treat?  Let me know in the comments!
