Day of the Dead Gifts
Would a skull without sugar look quite as sweet? We think that is pretty obvious, but once you take a look at our various gifts for Day of the Dead, we think you'll be convinced that the sugar skull is the way to go! Whether you're decorating your home to celebrate the holiday or if you would like to add a little extra to a costume, you'll find the right Day of the Dead gifts to make the spirits on the other side feel the fun!
Maybe you want to know a bit about the sugar skull before we start looking at the options that are available to you. That seems fair! They are an iconic part of Day of the Dead that has some surprising history. The full name of the look is the calavera. If you wondered why they're called sugar skulls, it's because that's what they were actually made of. They were edible treats artistically rendered and made from sugar. As early as the 1630s, kids would place these delectable treats as ofrendas to their deceased loved ones. It makes all the sense in the world that you might want to offer up a Sugar Skull gift to someone in your life, too! (Who knows, maybe the departed would get a kick out of them, too.)
In contemporary days, we still go about the same decorations, but we typically use more modern materials so they'll stick around a bit longer. (That way we can use all the sugar for sweets that we're actually going to eat.)
When you look through our Day of the Dead gifts category, you'll find several unique sweaters that we've created in our own Made by Us studios. Several of them feature bright sugar skulls, offering up their skeletal grins amidst bright colors and vivid designs. (We even have a few articles of clothing that are more designed for when the sun isn't shining!) Get your Day of the Dead clothes and jump into the celebration for your Dia de Muertos. Accessorize your look with belts, jewelry, wristlets, and sunglasses. You can even take it to the next level with fully designed Day of the Dead costumes, featuring everything from classic Catarina Skeletons and Spanish dancers to pinata and full Suitmeister designs.
When it is time to enjoy some of those snacks, you'll find some Day of the Dead gifts for the home, too. Deck your table with Sugar Skull decor, including mugs, plates, and serving dishes. (They're a perfect place to store your traditional candies.) Light up the room with our variety of Day of the Dead wall decorations.
One the music starts running, you'll find great Day of the Dead accessories to make the holiday extra fun. Skeleton designs feature on our shoes, shades, and shirts. You can even make yourself look like you're visiting from the spirit realm with a Dia de Muertos mask. The Day and the Dead is about celebrating both the living and the departed, so gather up your gifts for everyone and get ready to smile!
