You've Been BOO-ed Free Printable Poem and DIY Halloween gift idea

Have you ever been BOO-ed or have you BOO-ed someone?!

If you’re looking for a fun way to spread some Halloween cheer, consider participating in this cute activity! Create this ghostly DIY Halloween gift basket by using our free printable below, and fill a box/basket/bag with frightening and thrilling goodies to brighten someone’s day.

The best part is you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Hit up the Dollar Tree or raid your candy stash for some festive treats.

You've Been BOO-ed

This is extremely customizable, with everything being pretty interchangeable aside from the “You’ve Been Boo-ed!” PDF. You can even take this a step further and customize the box/basket/bag you choose to match the interests of the person you’re boo-ing.

The candy options are endless and can be chosen on a variety of factors: flavor preference, allergy-friendly, etc.

    We did this when our son was little, and it was so fun and a good lesson for reaching out to our neighbors. It was fun to see how far it would get through the neighborhood. My son liked to see who got booed by looking for the sign in their windows.

    Target has halloween buckets for a dollar in their bullseye section that have the words, YOU’VE BEEN BOOED! and other cute phrases on them that are great for this activity:)

      How neat! Thanks for the heads up on those, Meg!

    I did something similar to this for a friend who is confined to a wheelchair by filling an empty 2 liter plastic bottle with Halloween goodies, stickers, pumpkin necklace, and even included a pumpkin solar light. Cut a “door” in the side of the bottle, lined the inside with tissue paper so no one could see inside, filled the bottle with the goodies and taped it closed. Included a note on the outside saying she had been Boo-Ed and mailed it to her, using her address for the return address. It was over a year before I finally confessed that I was the one to send it. She said she couldn’t stop giggling…it had made her day.
