As spooky season is officially starting up, it seemed like a good time for a roundup of gift ideas with a dark and edgy sensibility. All the items on this list feature my more macabre or at least slightly spooky artwork and make perfect gifts for the goths on your shopping list or treat yourself to something special to help get into the Halloween spirit.
1. Little Dead Riding Hood Graphic Tee
I’m big fan of classic literature, and that, of course, includes fairy tales. Let’s be honest, most fairy tales are pretty dark and shall we say grim (grimm?) on their own, but throw in a skeleton, and things really take a turn for the spooky. That’s why my Little Dead Riding Hood graphic tee is a perfect choice for anyone who adores horror movies and all things frightening. It’s perfect for adding some creepy vibes to your fall wardrobe, though die-hard goths know that skeletons are year-round attire. This t-shirt features my illustration of the heroine of the classic Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale. She has her familiar red cape and a pretty basket of flowers, but she’s got a bit less substance to her since she’s depicted as a bony white skeleton.
2. Skeleton Hands Shotglass
Need the perfect gift for your favorite goth couple? Fear not, my heart-shaped skeleton hands shotglass is perfect for celebrating creepy lovebirds. This custom shotglass has a pair of skeleton hands in a sweet heart shape and is ready to be personalized with the initials of the happy couple inside the heart and their wedding date (or other text) below. It’s makes a perfect anniversary gift or a fun wedding present for goth-themed nuptials. So raise a glass and toast your favorite creepy couple in style!
