For Halloween I give out Halloween pencils. You can get them at the Dollar Store, there is usually 10 in a package. They always get too much candy, and it can be used after the holiday. The kids love it, so do the parents! I have been doing this for years now.

I'm giving out tiny pots of planted pumpkin seeds this Halloween.

Last year, I saved the seeds from pumpkins when making jack-o-lanterns and dried them. We roasted and ate some, planted others in our vegetable garden and saved the rest.

You can buy either the biodegradable planter containers or just cute little pots at the collar store, fill with earth, push in a seed, water and cover with plastic. Then you've got your unique "treat" for trick-or-treating this year. The child can transplant the seedling, and watch his or her very own pumpkin grow big and round!
