Trick or treat buckets don't have to be basic plastic pumpkins; they can be remarkable containers you'll be pleased to use for storage way beyond Halloween. Let's start with the paper mache candy buckets from Kathy Baggett of N2Hookin, including the raccoon shown above. Update on Oct. 10, 2014: I'm not seeing Kathy making any buckets this year.
Judy Skinner of Collectiques by Jubee sells this Halloween bucket; I was attracted by the cat, which seems to radiate attitude.
This delightful canvas trick or treat bag comes from Judy of A Little Frayed. She has a few other designs, too.
The Candy Monster bags from Doves Nest Designs aren't as useful for home storage as the other items I've listed, but they can certainly be put to other uses during the year — and they were too wonderful not to share. [via Inhabitots]
All the items I've listed up until now come from Etsy — but then there's Edward the Owl. I first found Edward on NeatoShop, but he's widely available. Update on Oct. 10, 2014: NeatoShop no longer carries this, but you can still find it elsewhere.
