A few weeks ago, I participated in the Kosher Connections Blog Party on Mishloach Manot ideas for Purim. At the time, I wasn’t even sure what I wanted to give this year so I blogged about last year’s Mishloach Manot basked of Challah and Grape Juice. And while I still love that idea (not mine, I borrowed from someone else), I decided to try something new this year. My hubbie came up with the theme, “Jungle,” which is wildly appropriate since our daughter LOVES all things animals, and our Mishloach Manot evolved from there.
It was complete chaos in our house last night and this morning trying to get the gift baskets ready but everyone helped and my family just left to begin deliveries. Here are some pictures of the baskets and items inside.
Lion and various other animals cupcakes in Zebra-striped cupcake holders and boxes.
Also included in the “animal” basket are animal crackers, juice and misc. candy and a small plastic animal (sorry, forgot to take a picture of the animal).
Three different animal baskets (purchased at the .99 cent store).
Cute gift tag created by my hubbie.
Juice, animal crackers, candy & plastic animal on bottom, cupcake on top.
Mishloach Manot galore on our dining room table/assembly line ready to be delivered!
What are you putting in your Mishloach Manot today? Share your ideas please so I can get started on next year’s gift earlier : )
Happy Purim and Happy Kosher
Looks lovely, and mostly colourful, the weather here was not great (we had snow, no kidding), this shelech mana would have brightened the day.
I agree. Purim is one of my favorite holidays because I love all of the giving and getting gifts. It’s so fun to see what everyone comes up with … so much creativity. Enjoy your snow and stay warm!
