Halloween is just around the corner, and if you’re looking around your house thinking, “You know what this place still needs? A bunch of skeletons doing yoga,” you’re in luck. And if that’s not what you’re thinking, well you probably are now. Especially since Trader Joe’s sells yoga skeleton air plants for $5.99. These came around last year and they’re back for round two in 2020.
And Trader Joe’s isn’t the only place that sells yoga skeletons.
Sure, skeletons are nothing new for Halloween, but you might not be aware of all the various products that, make no bones about it, are available to celebrate any type of occasion. Like adorable, clearly flexible skeletons, which are the Halloween (and maybe everyday) home decor you never knew you needed. Scroll ahead to see where you can “namas-stay” spooky and zen with these yoga skeletons, as well as find other skeleton and skull-themed gifts to keep the spine-chilling vibes going all year round.
The set of three yoga skeletons has one in Namaste, one getting its “om” on, and the other doing a stretch this body hasn’t produced in 20 years. The yoga skeletons are perfect for Halloween, sure. But if you like macabre things or have a friend who’s a yoga instructor, these would be perfect to keep up all year round. The figurines are approximately two inches by five inches, so they’d be perfect for a coffee table, on your mantle, or kitchen counter. They are made of cold cast resin, so they’re sturdy and should hold up under the wear of tiny, sticky hands, and cat paws. If you’re worried these will be too dark of a decoration, take it from one reviewer, who said “I love these little guys. We had so many people comment on how cute they were.”
If you think three yoga skeletons just aren’t going to cut it this year, Amazon is also selling a set of four yoga skeletons, so you have even more poses and more skeletons to enjoy. This group is practicing the lotus pose with hands down, lotus pose with arms raised, prayer pose, and a one-legged pigeon pose that most people couldn’t do without years of practice and possibly some pain relief cream on hand. They may even inspire you to dust off your old yoga mat and do a few minutes of Savasana yourself. The figures are 6.5 inches high and cast in resin. They’re hand-painted a bone white finish and have details to create shadows to make these really come to life (or life after death?). One reviewer and yogi gave them five stars, saying, “I own a yoga studio. These are a HUGE hit.”
Carry your yogi skeleton friends with you with this CASETiFY iPhone case. The shockproof, dual-layer protection grip case will protect your phone from drops, bumps, and minor accidents, and it’s size-compatible with iPhone models 4 all the way up to 11 Pro Max. The case is lightweight but durable, and there are soft grips on the sides (available in clear, rose pink, or black) to help you keep a handle on your phone, no matter how clumsy you or your kids who keep stealing your phone are. The back of the case is transparent and scratch-resistant with adorable drawings of skeletons in various yoga poses by a Bangkok-based illustrator, and will bring a smile to your face everytime you check your phone. It also has impact-absorbing Thermoplastic Polyurethane and a polycarbonate hardshell exterior, and has been drop-tested up to four feet.
This ceramic cup is a great way to wake yourself, or any unsuspecting victim, every morning. At first glance, this just looks like a regular black coffee mug from the outside. But on the inside, a white skull is hiding on the bottom (if you pour a dark or opaque liquid into the cup, the drinker won’t even see the skull until they’re almost done with the beverage). It holds about 10 ounces of liquid, and is both microwave and dishwasher safe. If you’re an avid coffee/tea drinker or a skull aficionado, this cup combines your two loves. One reviewer said, “I LOVE skulls! I have them on everything from clothing to skins on my ps3. When I saw this cute cup I had to have it! It’s very good quality and the skull looks great.” There is also a version with a spider, crow, gargoyle, and Cthulhu (a mythical, octopus-like creature) to create a whole creepy yet cool collection in your cabinet.
For your next Halloween party, cocktail hour, or family dinner, this skull ice cube mold tray will greatly increase the chill factor of your occasion. The ice cube tray is made from food-grade silicone and is BPA-free, non-toxic, leak-free, and microwave and dishwasher safe. You can make four large 3D skull-shaped ice cubes (2 x 2.36”) at once and then watch them slowly melt into your beverage of choice (tip: use filtered instead of tap water to make clear ice cubes). The flexible silicone material makes it easy to remove the cubes once they’re created — no more endlessly banging the ice tray on the kitchen counter or chasing after flying cubes. The skull ice cubes are not only cool, but they’re also automatic conversation starters. They’re also a fun addition to your kids’ afternoon snack time.
This seemingly tame cat candle is hiding a secret surprise inside. As it starts to burn, the candle will reveal a spooky metal skeleton, which will remain after all the wax melts away. The candle comes in three colors (pink, light grey, and blank), is 6.7 x 2.9 x 4.5 inches big, and has a burn time of about 20 hours. Watching the candle transform can turn into an oddly satisfying activity for you and your family. This one reviewer gifted one and liked it so much that they are considering buying another one for themself: “Bought this as a gift and it is awesome! It is cute as a candle and a piece of art after it melts. It was a fun timelapse opportunity and the quality is strong. I would recommend as a quirky gift for a quirky friend or an interesting discussion piece. It might also be fun to have an unused candle next to one that is burned so that you have a before and after display. Highly recommend and will buy another likely for myself.”
Compression socks are great for increasing circulation if you have tired or sore legs and feet (for example, they’re great for pregnant women or anyone who’s on their feet a lot, AKA every mom). The Double Couple compression socks are designed by physicians to provide compression support from the calf to the foot as well as provide ankle protection. They have a reinforced toe and heel to prevent holes and chafing, and they’re made with a breathable, quick-drying fabric so your legs will stay comfortable without overheating. They could also help control swelling and fatigue or relieve muscle pain. Adding fashion to function, this pair has a fun skeleton design on the front, and a skull and crossbones on the calf. One reviewer said, “I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on these and how much they’re helping with the swelling I get in my legs, especially on my work days when I’m on my feet non stop.”
