Have you ever seen a photo of something so absurdly cute, you inadvertently let out a high-pitched squeal and feel the need to have it in your possession as soon as humanly possible? This exact sequence of events typically unfolds every time I scroll past dog pictures on Instagram, but it also happened when I laid eyes on Target's new must-have Halloween product of the year: the $5 Threshold ghost mug.
The not-so-spooky drinkware is impossibly adorable for multiple reasons, which yes, I am about to describe in detail. For starters — those hands! The teeny-tiny blobs have zero chance of reaching out and frightening me, a certified scaredy cat, which I immensely appreciate. And that mouth! You can almost hear the ghost letting out a tiny "boop!"-like noise. Plus, the mug's overall size is compact, seeing as it only holds 9.7 ounces of coffee, PSL, witch's brew, or whatever else you prefer to sip during fall.
It looks like I'm not the only who's been charmed by the Halloween-themed drinking vessel or its affordable price tag; Target shoppers far and wide have shared on Instagram how quickly they're flying off the shelves at many stores. Although the item is technically listed on Target's website, you actually can't have it shipped, so your best bet is booking it to the nearest Target to snag one (or several!) for yourself. Hot tip: apparently they're located in the kitchen goods department, rather than the Halloween decor section. You can thank me later for the PSA.
