(And if you’re wondering where the custom of Mishloach Manot comes from, check out our Purim Traditions Explained blog!)

1. Include at least two different items


The traditional requirement for Mishloach Manot is to include at least two different types of foods, or a food and a beverage.

Whether you’re a stickler for tradition or not, a gift basket with variety is instantly fancier and more enjoyable, and sure to be appreciated by your recipients.

Many of our prepared kosher gift baskets already have two or more different types of foods, of you can put together your own basket by for example combining some deluxe Israeli spreads or halva snacks with a nice bottle of wine.

2. Have a taste of the Land of Israel


Nothing makes a Jewish gift more special than having it made in the Land of Israel, and what better way to celebrate Purim than by giving your loved ones a chance to indulge in some of the best Israeli-made delicacies?

The “Land of Milk and Honey” is of course famous for its honey, but equally amazing are its all-natural olive oil, wine, tehina, scrumptious halva, and teas and coffees.

So make it an unforgettable gift by including some of the best flavors of Israel in your Mishloach Manot!

3. Add Purim-themed gifts


Spread the joy of Purim and instantly upgrade your Mishloach Manot baskets by adding a small gift inspired by the holiday: whether a greeting card, grogger, fun mask, confetti or ribbons, or even a toy or other Jewish item made just for kids!

And of course, traditional hamentaschen pastries always add holiday spirit, especially when homemade.

Our store is including colorful groggers and masks in several of our Purim gift baskets, but feel free to add your own creativity with our many Purim gifts!

4. Get elegant if you can


If you have the budget, add some elegance and style to your Mishloach Manot baskets that will really leave your friends and family impressed!

You can get a professionally assembled, high-end kosher gift basket right from our store with some of the best Israeli-made artisanal foods and wines, with some options even including elegant postcards or other small gifts.

Or, create your own luxurious Mishloach Manot by including fine wine from Israeli vineyards and some fancy food. You can even kick it up a notch with a beautiful kiddush cup, bottle opener set or stopper, or some unforgettable Jerusalem-themed decor straight from Israel.

Happy gifting and happy Purim from the entire Judaica WebStore team in Jerusalem!
