It’s almost time for Halloween! That means it is the perfect time to celebrate one of Dinsey’s most beloved movies: Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). Let’s take a look at the best items based on that classic film we can find at the greatest fall store of all, Spirit Halloween.
It’s officially Halloween time! That means it’s time to celebrate the one movie Disney and Hot Topic kids love equally: The Nightmare Before Christmas. Tim Burton‘s iconic film is the perfect send-off for the year, telling the story of Jack Skellington and his dream to experience something new.
Part of what makes the movie so beloved is its combination of two of the best holidays. Now, your Halloween decorations can easily become Christmas decorations! It’s like you’re killing two birds with one stone, which is definitely more of a Halloween-y act. Unless they’re two turtle doves.
However, it does make one wonder which place is the best for Nightmare Before Christmas goodness. The Disney Store is guaranteed to have high-quality items, but it’s expensive. Home Depot has tons of inflatables and the 13-foot-tall Jack Skellington, but that’s only good if you have a front lawn or an understanding spouse.
That leaves one perfect location: Spirit Halloween. Spirit Halloween is filled with more costumes, decorations, and accessories than you could ever need, especially when it comes to The Nightmare Before Christmas. On top of that, all of these items are officially licensed by Disney!
That being said, there are a ton of options to choose from, meaning it gives us the perfect opportunity to create a list of the best Nightmare Before Christmas items at Spirit Halloween. So sit back, grab a bottle of deadly nightshade, and take a look at the best that Spirit Halloween has to offer.
Jack Skellington Coffin Mini Backpack
Add some Halloween Town style to your spooky season outfit rotations this year! This adorable and officially licensed Jack Skellington Coffin Mini Backpack is the perfect accessory for any ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ fan!
While Spirit Halloween is most known for its animatronic decorations and Halloween costumes, the store that lives in the corpses of failed businesses also has its share of accessories. One of the best is the Jack Skellington Coffin Mini Backpack.
Not only is this backpack shaped like a coffin, but it also has plenty of Nightmare Before Christmas imagery without getting too childish. Jack Skellington’s profile is front and center in beautiful metallic glory, while the mainly black carry-on is accented with lovely blue nightshade and creatures straight out of the mind of Tim Burton. It’s a wonderful item that can be worn any time of year.

Whether you’re decorating for Halloween or you just want to add a spooky detail to your everyday décor, this Jack Skellington Snow Globe is perfect for any fan. Celebrate the Pumpkin King!
One of the best parts about The Nightmare Before Christmas is that it works for Halloween and Christmas. That means you can leave these decorations up for the final quarter of the year! And the item that sums this up perfectly is the Light-Up Jack Skellington Pumpkin King Snow Globe.
Powered by AAA batteries, this snow globe celebrates the macabre imager of the classic film with a bit more Christmas flare.

Now, you can take a piece of that home with you while also keeping track of your finances with the Town Hall Table Clock and Bank.
A beautiful replica of Halloween Town’s Town Hall, this piggy bank is also a working clock. It also features Jack Skellington sitting with a pumpkin in his hands and the Mayor proudly standing, ready to start planning for next Halloween, er, Xmas.

If you have a younger child, why not dress them up in the Toddler Zero Costume? Not only does it pair well with parents who want to be Jack and Sally, but it has multiple advantages other costumes don’t. For one, it’s very easy to put on since it’s just a hood and a poncho.
