Fall is well on its way, so there’s no time like the present to get stocked up on all your Halloween decor. If you’re after something a little more subtle than The Home Depot’s iconic 12-foot skeleton, or the nine-foot LED clown archway that’s sure to welcome guests in with a fright, there are plenty of Halloween-ready pieces that are more cute than scary.

Adding a subtle, stylish touch of Halloween flair to the home, the gourmet gift retailer has introduced a succulent gift that’s sure to be the center of attention this season.

The Spooky Cauldron Succulent Gift features a four-inch string of pearls succulent plant that is nestled inside a miniature black ceramic cauldron to resemble a bubbling witches’ brew that even Winnie Sanderson would be jealous of. The gift also arrives with a festive Halloween hangtag for an extra special creepy touch.

Making the perfect gift for plant parents who may not have the greenest of thumbs, string of pearls (or Senecio Rowleyanus) are made to last and can thrive with little care. With their overflowing vines and bubbly pearl-like leaves, string of pearls may look delicate, but as part of the succulent family, which is a group of plants that are generally easy to care for. Native to southwest Africa, string of pearls are drought tolerant and prefer bright, indirect light if kept indoors.

Available to pre-order and shipping from Oct. 11, the succulent cauldron costs $39.99 and may arrive with decorative moss that can be removed after delivery. Care instructions will also be provided.

This year, Harry & David are also carrying a range of other fa-boo-lous festive gifts. The Trick or Treat Kalanchoe Plant ($39.99) is a fun-meets-frightful gift that will add a floral touch to your Halloween decor. The orange kalanchoe plant arrives budding and ready to bloom and tucked inside a black wood planter adorned with a spooky ghost design. For an extra special treat, the gift also comes with a generous bag of candy corn.
