A Halloween Giveaway You Won't Want To Miss! (GIVEAWAY CLOSED)



So, let's take a second here to talk about October.  Is there anything more perfect in the world than this month?  I mean SERIOUSLY?  Maybe it can be attributed to it being my birth month (October 19th ya'll - send me a card!) but as soon as I flip that calendar from September to October my entire mood changes and I am SO excited.


Living in Michigan, this month is the best.  We have no shortage of gorgeous apple orchards or pumpkin patches here, the air is crisp and a little chilly, all those leaves are changing color and we have the best color tours up north to take it all in, and there are so many good haunted houses to go get your scare on.  Michigan apple cider is a-flowin' and it seriously is the most wonderful time of the year.



I've always loved Halloween, in fact, it is without a doubt, my absolute favorite holiday.  I grew up having Halloween themed birthday parties.  DIYing the coolest costumes, and making all the tissue paper ghosts a girl could dream of.  I love all things creepy, dressing up in costume and horror movies all. the. way.  I mean even just bringing it back to my work at Honey and the Hive, I don't put as much love into any holiday collection as I do my Halloween collection.  This year I started in March.  MARCH.  Now that's dedication right?




When Unique Vintage got in touch with me to do a Halloween giveaway I was SO. ON. BOARD.  My favorite time of year, my favorite clothing brand.  Does it get any better?  I don't think so.



So if you love Halloween as much as we do, we've teamed up to give you some awesome goodies to make the most of the spookiest month of the year.  One lucky little ghoul is going to win not only a $50 gift card to Unique Vintage to get some clothes that are so cute it's creepy - BUT you will also win my entire Halloween Punny Pin collection.  What the WHAT?



Entering is super simple!  Literally all you have to do is comment on this post and tell us what your favorite thing about Halloween is.  THAT'S IT.  You can even get a bonus entry if you follow both @honeyandthehive and @uniquevintage on Instagram (just let us know in the comments what your username is).  We'll be picking a winner on Friday October 6th!  So come on boos, get yourself something cute!


UPDATE 10/6/2017
Please join me in congratulating the winner of this giveaway, Megan!  And a huge thank you to all who participated we absolutely loved reading through all of your responses (and got some fun ideas to make our Halloweens even better)!  Be on the look out for more awesome giveaways in the future.

  1. My favorite thing about Halloween is the decorations! I just bought myself a large plastic skeleton that I've been dying to add to my decor collection for years! P.S. Quit being so adorable all the time, Kelsey :-* -Capri (@halfmilehandmade)

  2. My favorite thing about Halloween is the entire month of October, honestly, BUT if I have to pick one thing, it’s the costumes. I love seeing how creative people are. My mom always hand made our customes and it was always very special. It’s so cool and exciting to dress up as a character or person you love and admire.

    Love both of your pages/sites! (@b.laurenh)

  3. The BEST part of Halloween is the excitement! From spending a year deciding what costume to wear, (I wasn't allowed to celebrate Halloween growing up due to my mothers religious beliefs) I may go over the top now... Buying the spookiest decorations Michael's carries, the treats and creating new, fun treat bags for the trick or treaters... Gaaahhhh, I could go on and on! I love Autumn in New England so much!!!!

  4. I love everything about Halloween. It represents cooler temperatures and getting to decorate the house with spooky things and every shade of orange. I love seeing everyone dressed up too. I’ve loved Halloween since I was a kid, even though I grew up in Alaska and we had to wear our costumes over our snow suits. I loved going to the Fall Festivals with friends and eating way more candy than my parents realized! I’ll never be to old for Halloween festivities, it just keeps getting better!☠️ <3, Kassy (@juicypez)

  8. My mom's birthday is in October too and her love of all things Halloween was a big part of my childhood, but my favorite part of the Halloween season were her infamous Halloween parties. As a kid, she would always throw the best Halloween parties for my friends - she'd go all out with the decorations, the food and drinks, even the party games had a fun Halloween twist! It's one of the things I miss most about my childhood - adult Halloween parties are fun but they don't have the same sense of fun and holiday spirit that my mom's parties had. (@emmykg894)

  9. I love the creativity that surfaces on Halloween. Particularly, I dress up in punny costumes - spelling bee, dust bunny, holy cow - fun! (@meganjoyv)

  11. My favorite things about Halloween is the way it brings so many people together. Growing up, Halloween was huge in my house, I remember my mom pulling out all her decorations and we would put them up together with my older brothers and sisters. Now we’re all older and have our own families but still come together with my mama and we decorate the house we grew up in and we get to share it with all the little nieces and nephews and get them excited for the best time of the year. I love the way the weather starts to get colder and the colors start to change to warmer and darker, richer colors. Halloween is an amazing time fo the year, it brings me back to my happy childhood. ������ (@battycakes1)

  12. My favorite thing about Halloween is how I can use my creativity to become anything. When I was little I was never allowed to celebrate Halloween so now that I’m an adult I appreciate getting dressed up and having that childlike wonder about this spooky holiday. ❤️

  13. My favorite thing about Halloween is EVERYTHING! <3 Probably decorating my house, the cool autumn wind, and handing out candy to all the cute neighborhood kids (and appreciating their costumes).

  14. It's hard to single out my favorite thing about Halloween, because I love it so much. But, if I had to choose one thing it would have to be the level of creativity everyone musters up! I love the decorations and the costumes, especially homemade ones! It brings everyone together and comradely is so awesome! I also follow both accounts! @nikkiferrari

  15. Hey girl! @basicmitch1 here. Tis' the season for alllllll the October babies! My dad (October 19th, woo!), my husbabe, my MIL, and my two nieces! So we get all the Halloween themed birthday parties in our clan! My favorite part about Halloween is watching all the Halloween movies with the windows open to let in that crisp fall air! And all the fall crockpot recipes to enjoy before all the Reese's pumpkins and orange Oreos! I've always loved Halloween the best because as Lydia Deetz put it, I am strange and unusual. But everybody is trying to be unusual this time of year and I LOVE it! Definitely brings us all together in a world that could use more of that. Bring on the costumes!! Happy Halloween!

  17. I've never been into scary Halloweens, but I've always loved dressing up in a pretty or clever costume. Now, as a homeowner, I love giving out candy to neighborhood kids during Trick or Treat. There's something magical and sweet about the excitement of kids on Halloween night. @carpenterad1 -Ashley C

  19. My most favorite thing about Halloween is that it’s the one day I year I get to be completely myself & no one questions anything. Of course all the boos & ghouls are always fun & horror movies are my all time fav genre, I just love the entire aesthetic of Halloween & how cozy everything starts to feel with the warm orange lights & pumpkin everything. It’s easily my favorite & most celebrated holiday. My Instagram username is @dragonbby_ I really hope to win! I’m a new follower to both accounts & have quickly fallen in love with both pages & im so happy to have found them!!

  20. I absolutely ADORE Halloween because of all the spooky storytelling! I especially love when shows I watch or podcasts I listen to do special, supernatural-themed episodes as a nod to the season — whether it’s storytelling, discussing Halloween or spiritualist history, or debunking popular urban myths or legends! Although I don’t believe in most of it, the supernatural is a huge interest of mine and I love doing research and absorbing as much information as I can, and I love the Halloween season because not only does it fling more of that content into my orbit but it gives me a fantastic chance to talk about it with anyone and everyone without sounding off my rocker!! — Gillian (@pluie.jpg on insta!)

  21. My favorite part is the CANDY! Particularly Reese's. And Kit Kats. And Snickers. Okay, fine, pretty much all of it.

  23. Halloween season is huge love of mine for so many reasons. The cooler weather, the change in the leaves and air, the clothing is better (Jean jackets and pins duh), hot apple cider...I could go onnnn. I love seeing kids and adults get excited about it together. Nobody is too old to join in on the Halloween festivities. I love having horror movie lazy nights with my husband. I now love helping my daughter be whoever she wants to be for a night...seeing the pure joy on her face. The spooky decorations. One last thing is that it's my husband's absolute favorite holiday so seeing him light up for a whole month is so fun for me. Happy birthday month and this really is such a fun giveaway!!!

  27. October is my favorite month, and I would argue that it is the most romantic month. It's a time for going on spooky adventures and wrapping yourself up with a loved one. It's picking apples in an orchard and going home to carve pumpkins. It's the time where we can all explore our darker side. It's all things pumpkin spice. On top of that, October ends with a bang - Halloween. The day where you can not only show off your unique personality, but eat an entire bag of candy that was meant for trick or treaters without shame.

    Thanks for being a badass witch!

  29. My favorite thing is being able to buy all things spooky at every store I go into! I also have an October birthday, the 25th "uhhumm" haha. It is definitely the best month out of the year here in Michigan. Beautiful shades of red and orange on all the trees. The crunch under your feet everywhere you walk. The Apple orchards. Fresh cider and donuts. And of course the excitement that all the littles have to get all dressed up and trick-or-treat.Maybe me too. xXJustJenniXx

  32. My favorite things about Halloween and the whole month of October are the beautiful fall colors, the sweater weather, and simply being so much more in touch with myself during this season. I absolutely love being able to walk outside and not die from heatstroke while being treated to the pretty copper toned palletes in the trees. Overall, I really feel like the season allows me to really embrace my inner 90s witch, my femininity, and my inner badassary. Plus I love ghosts �� I follow you both on Instagram! (miss.jennamarie)

  36. My favorite thing about Halloween is watching kids get excited about free candy! I wasn't allowed to trick-or-treat as a kid, so I go above and beyond to get the good chocolates! :-P

    P.S. I follow you on Instagram and creep on your stories (I'm the MT that was talking about EOs!)

  37. The best thing about Halloween is being able to be creative with costumes, the cool crisp air of fall, seeing all the pumpkins and mums on everyone's porches along with spooky Halloween decor, and spending time with family doing our annual chili dinner after kids trick or treating. I can't just pick one thing to love about the best time of the year! To add to the list, I'm getting married a few days before Halloween so now I have another reason to love this time of year!:)

Seriously. Halloween is my FAVORITE!

  48. It's so hard to pick my favorite part of Halloween! I think I'd have to go with the fact that it brings me back to my childhood. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. I always loved the spooky feeling, the haunted houses, the costumes, and (of course) the candy! Halloween always let me embrace my spooky side and be surrounded by pumpkins, witches, ghosts and vampires (which I used to pretend I was as a kid, even when it wasn't Halloween). It will always be my favorite time of year.

  49. Oh gosh, trying to choose my favorite thing about Halloween is absolutely impossible! There is basically nothing I don't love about it! I love all of the skulls and skeletons, I love dressing up all month long instead of just on the 31st, I love pumpkin cookies, I love how it brings community's together and how they embrace it, I love outside because it's the perfect weather for anything, I love wearing boots everywhere, I love playing in the pretty leaves, I think part of the reason I love it so much is because the 31st was my grandmother's birthday and she loved me so much and accepted me just the way I was! The list literally doesn't stop! Thank you so much for hosting this absolutely awesome giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  50. My boyfriend and I go to a pumpkin patch every year to pick out pumpkins to carve, and then we carve them later while watching Tim Burton movies! Definitely one of my favorite things about Halloween. :)

  51. My favorite thing about Halloween is decorating my home with my husband while we watch our favorite Halloween specials from when we were kids! There's nothing better than putting out fake skeleton parts while watching Marc Summers' Halloween special and episodes of the Goosebumps tv show :D. I am la_croft on Instagram, and awesomely, am already following both accounts! :D

  52. October is my favorite month too, but I'm also biased. My favorite thing about October is that Halloween is literally the kick off to the entire holiday season for me. I love watching Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown every single year!! I also love doing the festivities: haunted hay rides, picking pumpkins, scaring people lol

  53. My favorite thing about Halloween is vintage spooky kitsch.

  54. I don't have one favorite thing about Halloween I love it all! Decorating the house (already done) picking out costumes (kids are done) and all that candy! I love the chill in the air and the excitement of the coming trick or treating. Follow both shops on Instagram (mosquints)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love trick or treaters! Last year I had hundreds of trick or treaters and it was the cutest thing. My insatiable sweet tooth also can't get enough of the candy.

  56. Hey! My name is Chrissy, and I absolutely love this season! All things spooky are my jam. My favorite part about Halloween is handing out candy/toys to the kids!

    This year, in an effort to be more inclusive, my husband and I are handing out Halloween bouncy balls and pencils to the kids in our neighborhood. We are setting out a teal pumpkin (the symbol of allergy safe trick-or-treat houses). :)

    I am also especially excited for this Halloween because it will be my 6 month old son's FIRST Halloween! I can't wait to share my favorite holiday with him!

    I already follow you both on Instagram (I'm @cherrybabomb), and I love this collaboration! Happy Halloween!

  57. Aaahhhhh!! I love everything about this!! I love your pins, and love their clothing line! So, needless to say, I already follow you both on IG (rhiannon_macha). Halloween is my all time favorite as well! Actually, just a fan of all things spooky in general. BUT my favorite thing about Halloween, if I have to narrow it down, is the fact that you can be whoever you want... wanna be a princess? Cool! A zombie bride? That’s cool too (even cooler if you ask me)! I love EVERYTHING about this time of year! Cheers, witches! ������������������

  58. Halloween has become more exciting for me in the last couple of years. For a long time I would just trick or treat and then when I got older I would pass candy out, pretty typical stuff. But now, my sister and I get a group together and host a Halloween horror night together. Essentially we just set up some fun decor, marathon a ton of horror movies, and eat a bunch of delicious junk food all night until we literally can’t stay awake anymore. Definitely my new favorite thing of Halloween :)

  59. This is so cool! My favorite part about Halloween is dreaming of costumes and watching all of my crafty friends come up with the most amazing ideas. The last few years I haven't dressed up but this year I'm making my Kikis delivery service dreams come true!

  60. My favorite thing about Halloween is probably my memory of trick or treating. I loved putting on a costume and going around house to house getting candy, but the best part was when a neighbor would give you a little extra treat. I'll never forget the time I got the cutest little monster finger puppet in my trick or treat bag. Now as an adult and being the one handing out the treats I always make sure to add a little something extra along with the sweets, be it a creepy spider ring, some vampire fangs, or some stickers. I always hope that maybe when those kids go through their bags they will get as excited as I did when I was their age and maybe pass on the tradition when they grow up. <3 Cassandra <3

  61. My favorite thing about Halloween is carving pumpkins. Ever since we were little, my dad would print out carving patterns and he'd sit with my brother and me on the porch to carve. It sometimes took hours as over the years our patterns became more and more intricate. It was my dad and my favorite holiday and one of the few things we could both get excited about. He's been gone 5 years and I still carve a crazy pumpkin every year. I also looooove dressing up as something scary every year.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love getting dressed up with my kids and being a part of our local Halloween parade! I never got to dress up and celebrate Halloween as a child so I probably love it more than a lot of adults but I get super excited to share this tradition with my kids.
