It's officially the spookiest time of year, so we thought we should celebrate with a Halloween-themed wish list!

For those who love the holiday, the fact that it is finally Halloween is bitter-sweet as it means this spooky time of year is almost over. However, if you are looking to keep the subtly-spooky vibes in your life throughout the year then this is the list for you.

Here are 7 hauntingly designed items, each with a hint of Halloween…

A5 “Ophelia” print by Fran Nerd (£8)

Featuring a woman lying in a pool of water with flowers growing out of her eye sockets, there is definitely something suitably spooky about Fran Nerd’s “Ophelia” print. The illustration is a reimagining of a painting which Sir John Everett Millais created in the early 1850s.

Using her signature illustration style, Fran has created a print with a contemporary aesthetic but the same creepy feel as the original.

A4 “Creeps” print by Sophie Gilmore (£20)

Humans dress up as all sorts for Halloween, but what about animals? This “Creeps” print by Sophie Gilmore questions what an animals costume party would be like. The answer is both adorable and odd in equal measure apparently!

A4 “Ghosts” print by Sandra Dieckmann (£15)

Continuing the animals at Halloween theme, Sandra Dieckmann’s “Ghosts” print opens up the debate as to whether fox ghosts are real. Much of Sandra’s portfolio juxtaposes nature and magic and this is one of her most enchanting pieces.

Eye cushion by Arro Home (£29)

If you prefer sleek and stylish eyes over the scary ones associated with Halloween, this cushion from Arro Home makes an eye-catching edition to any interior.
