Mishloach Manot Themes – Purim Basket Themes

It’s become super popular to distribute Shalach Manot baskets with themes. I don’t know how, when, or where this “minhag” got started, but it has really caught on. Our clients are always asking us for ideas, so we thought we’d put together a comprehensive list and post them here. Please email me (ari (at) happypurim.com) if you’ve got any suggestions, or simply add the great ones you’ve seen to the comments below.

I already have a list of 15 or so; I’d like to get a few more before I post them next week. Click Here to see the list of themes.

Thanks and Shabbat Shalom,

Ari

    Breakfast at Tiffany was one of our themes. We used items that would be good for breakfast such as coffee, oatmeal, breakfast bars and were able to include a coffee mug that we put our sisterhood logo on.

    We did a movie theme one year where the basket was a movie theater popcorn bucket. We filled it with all sorts of goodies that you would get at the movie theater and even were lucky enough to have a dvd donated for each basket.

    Another theme we did was a beach theme for which we used a sand pail as the bucket and filled it with goodies one would eat at the beach along with a puzzle book that they would use at the beach. Believe it or not salt water taffy is kosher.

    I would love to know if anyone else has done a theme based program. All ideas are helpful

    Thank you so much!
    Happy Purim!

    Its probably a little late but:

    One year I got the cutest mishloach manot. It was one of those ice holders like a silver one filled with clear rock candy and a small bottle of champagne. VERY cute.

    I got a cooking one year filled with small containers of spices and other things associated with cooking and it was all in an oven mit.

    I got one that was themed “7 days of creation” day one: black and white cookies. day 2: bottle of water etc…
