    Get it from Great BIG Canvas on Etsy for $31.49+ (available in three sizes).

    2. A Dammit Doll you'll be glad to have with you when that full harvest moon is out and things start going wacky and wrong. Smack this until the stuffing comes out and you'll feel fine... totally fine.


    Promising review: "These are my go-to gifts for people I work with and don’t really know all that well as a special gift to give. But I do know one thing, everyone has tough days at work and in life and could definitely use one of these once in a while. Everyone I have gifted one to has loved it and gotten the biggest laugh out of it. I love these dolls. I have bought and gifted out a few so far and plan to continue to purchase them." —Kahos923

    Get it from Amazon for $15.79.

    3. A vertebraecelet — a startling accessory that's only made for folks who really have the spine to stomach all that scary, superstitious stuff.

    Hot Topic

    Get it from Hot Topic for $19.92+ (available in sizes S–2XL).

    6. A decorative garland for celebrating with an aesthetic that's rather... sharp. They also fold flat for easy storage, making them super simple to pull out the next time this date comes along and you need a li'l decor for your Friday the 13th movie party.


    Promising review: "These are even better in person. They look so real. I was shocked by how good they looked." —Megan3

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $12.99.

    7. A lucky rabbit's foot print that'll (hopefully) protect you from every rab-bit of bad luck that tries to come your way on this dreadful day!

    10. Or a flash print sheet that'll let you enjoy the traditional "holiday" art without getting your skin anywhere near a needle.

    KWT Designs

    Get it from KWT Designs on Etsy for $10.

    11. A bar of Lady Macbeth's soap – it's gonna be *totally* safe and *certainly* not unlucky to use when you've gotta wash off some darn stains, spills, or spots... as long as you don't dare say "Macbeth" while you use it.


    Promising review: "This soap is in my guest bathroom and it gets lots of attention from my family members with experience studying English literature. We love it!" —browneyed girl

    Get it from Amazon for $5.85.

    12. A PyroPet for anyone who loves the idea of filling their place with a skele-*ton* of decor on this weirdly fun, but mostly freaky, day.


    Promising review: "The candle burned almost exactly as shown in the pictures. There was a little smoke that came off the metal when first exposed, but it quickly went away. There's no scent to the candle. It's been burning about 15 hours." —Richard Keker

    Get it from Amazon for $34 (available in four colors).

    13. A freestanding blanket ladder that'll be too hard to ever walk under and thus, free of bad luck — a perfect place to hang your cloaks, robes, and lucky horse shoes.


    Promising review: "This was a wonderful idea for organizing blankets! I absolutely love how it keeps blankets nearby without having to dig into a closet or pick them up off the floor when you need them. This arrived all put together, a huge plus since I didn't have to assemble it. It is also very light and easy to move around. Helps keep our living room looking neat and clean! I would say you can fit about eight blankets on it (two per a bar except for the bottom one since it is very low to the ground), possibly 10 blankets if you have smaller blankets or don't mind the bottom two dragging on the floor. A great buy!" —Brandon & Izabelle

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two colors).

    14. A box set of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (with the original artwork by Stephen Gammell) — you can get these out every Friday the 13th and tell the scary stories that are usually saved for October 31st. Why should Halloween have all the (terrifying) fun?,

    These are the illustrations of our '90s childhood nightmares.

    Promising review: "If you are going to buy these books, this is the place to get them, in this specific set. I had to search a bit to find the original set, because the new box set doesn't include the original art. If you're familiar with these books, the original art is breathtaking and about as spooky, eerie, and disturbing as it gets." —mr. big

    Get them (used) from Amazon for $23.98.

    15. A deep black victorian accent mirror for giving your home a glamorously goth look worth staring at often. Unless you walk in one day and find it Baroquen. Then you should walk away. Fast.


    Get it from Wayfair for $189.95.

    16. A reusable balloon that'll help you decorate on this date a ~number~ of times without filling your home with new, frightfully unlucky stuff.


    Promising review: "These are so awesome! My daughter kept them up for over a month!!" —Stephanie M.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    17. A boxset of A Series of Unfortunate Events so you can read about the unluckiest of orphans and find out about their dismal days, perhaps helping you feel a little bit better about your own bad luck.


    This set has the first three books. But you can also get a set with all 13 novels, if you dare!

    Promising review: "I have been trying to collect all the books in this series and finding them in box sets like this can be quite challenging. I was so glad when I came across this product on Amazon. Not only were they a great price, they were the hardcover, original illustration editions. All book lovers will understand me when they try to seek first editions of their favorite books, be it childhood fiction or whatever. It is rare to find stories that entail subtle messages to growing children. Re-reading these as an adult now, I feel like there is so much to learn from reading drama/tragedy targeted at a younger audience. Lemony Snicket is truly an artful author." —Nancy

    Get them from Amazon for $17.09.

    18. A jar of black salt – it's surely gonna protect you from anything terrible that comes your way, as long as you don't feel ~salty~ about such a superstitious solution.

    The Witchy Mommy

    Get it from The Witchy Mommy on Etsy for $15.

    19. A jointed paper cat for some darling, if unsettling, vintage decor that's easy to store flat and whip out whenever the occasion calls for a little bit of bad luck.


    Promising review: "I cant say enough how much I love this cat! It is well made and beautiful. One side is glossy the other matte, obviously the glossy side pops more and the matte is more subdued. Each piece moves and holds in whatever position you put it in. It is well made and looked amazing on my wall." —RoboDevil

    Get it from Amazon for $8.82.

    20. Or a devilishly darling enamel pin — a critter you just might consider pining on if you think celebrating this strange day with a statement accessory sounds furociously fun.


    Promising review: "This is perfect for those of us who know that black cats are the luckiest cats to have around. It's a nice size, with two pin backs so it won't flip." —This Daydreamer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    21. The Encyclopedia of Superstition, a book you'll devour if you're interested in learning about everything that makes us mere mortals afraid of bumps in the night.


    Promising review: "This book is a must-read for anyone who loves superstitions — it's incredibly entertaining. I bought it for my son and he loves it. It's fascinating to see what superstitions people have and how they came about. Great read!" —Michelle Frost

    Get it from Amazon for $15.03.

    22. An aventurine crystal candle with the actual lucky crystal tucked safely inside — you can light this up and breathe a sigh of relief when you need a break from some bad luck.

    Arabella Crystals

    Get it from Arabella Crystals on Etsy for $26.99.

    23. And of course, a Jason pin for horror enthusiasts who celebrate a different sort of Santa this holiday season.

    Wicked Critter

    Get it from Wicked Critter on Etsy for $10.99 (available in two styles).

    Happy holidays!
