Every October, partners across the country struggle to answer the same age-old question: No, not “What candy should we pass out to trick-or-treaters?” but “What’s a good Halloween costume for couples?”

For starters, there are so many different ways you can go—from cute and cheeky to seriously spooky—which can make the decision feel even more stressful, particularly if you’re the one hosting this year’s big Halloween bash. And that’s exactly why we searched the Internet and Instagram to compile a list of funny things you and your boo can be for Halloween. Some costumes are based on duos in bestselling books (think: Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh), while other ideas come from some of the most famous couples in Halloween movies, on TV (hello, Dwight and Angela), and IRL (looking at you, Bey and Jay). Prefer something a bit more creative? We’ve also got plenty of clever couple’s costumes inspired by things that just go better together, like bacon and eggs or milk and cookies. And, just in case you’re looking for something more family-friendly than adults-only, we’ve even included a few costumes for the whole crew. yes, that even includes your BFFS and furry family members. (Of course, if you’re all about leaning into the scary side of Halloween, we’ve also got skeletons, spiders, and other classic costumes.)

Best of all, though? While some of our getups involve store-bought costumes, many of our ideas can be brought to life with items you already own (okay, and maybe one or two cheap Amazon finds) so not only are they easy to DIY, but they can also be thrown together at the last minute, if needed. Ahead, we’ve gathered the best and most funny Halloween costumes for couples, so now all you have to do is pick out that perfect Instagram caption.
