STILL six days to go until the witching hour strikes and Halloween is upon us.

With this in mind, this week will no doubt be a flurry of sewing machines, fittings and needlecraft activity as you perfect those trick or treating - or guising if you prefer – costumes for the little darlings.

But if you don’t have the skills or indeed the time, don’t despair because the high street has some quick and easy off the peg outfits that will bring plenty of double, double toil and trouble to the evening. And there's not a scary price tag in sight.

These practical pieces are ideal for Halloween parties as well as trick or treating and can be worn for fun afterwards.

Aside from clothes, accessories can make for a fun night’s trick or treating, too. The personalised bag from is bound to go down a (trick or) treat, while the ghoulish balance bike makes great transport on the night for those who haven’t quite mastered cycling.

So, now you're all set...let the ghostly goings on begin!
