Boo baskets: the autumnal TikTok trend you'll love (1)

A boo basket is the latest TikTok trend doing the rounds this autumn. Think of it like an Easter hamper or a Christmas Eve box – it's filled with treats to help you celebrate the season.

As its name may suggest, boo baskets are ideally packed with Halloween and autumnal-themed goodies, so for a home lover it's perfect if filled with cosy soft furnishings and accessories for seasonal decorating, from plush pumpkins to a cosy blanket.

'It's the perfect self-care box for autumn to treat yourself with – or a thoughtful gift idea for a friend or loved one to deliver them a bundle of goodies to hunker down at home during pumpkin spice season,' says Dee Fontenot, Wayfair's resident style advisor.

'With colder temperatures, we naturally spend more time at home and in recent years we've seen the trend for seasonal decorating grow – as we look to give homes a refresh – and not just for Christmas. Adding a few simple decorations and autumnal touches is a great way to update a space, and these make for a fab addition to your boo basket.'
