Kids love dinosaurs, and every child has his or her favorite one. If your child loves the triceratops, then a gift to consider could be a triceratops costume. Kids can play at being a fierce dino, or they can wear it as a Halloween costume. Make sure their vision is not blocked by the mask or headpiece, and make sure they can walk easily without a chance of them tripping over their costume.
Three examples I think my son would love:

In the late sixties and early seventies, the hippie way of dressing was all about colors and fun. If your daughter wants to be a “flower child” for Halloween, you’ll be happy to know there are plenty of costumes available in that style. It is also easy enough to put together your own costume from clothes found at vintage clothing stores, or tie-dye your own, if you’re willing to make the effort.
Three fun examples – and very cute, I think:

Toga parties are a college tradition – one that is still popular today. Of course, dressing up for this kind of occasion can mean wearing a bed sheet, or you could go for something more elaborate and get a pre-made costume. These tend to look a lot better, especially when paired with some kind of headpiece, some costume jewelry, and strappy sandals that go up around the ankles.
Here are two examples I find quite elegant:
